The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon
Special thanks to Forever for providing our copy of The boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon in exchange for an honest & fair review.
There are so many things I love about this book. I love it so much that The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon is on my Summer Reading List for 2020! Okay, here goes!
This is a Smart, Tech-Centered Diverse Romance
I really love the opening. Farrah, you are too clever. If there is ever an opening that sucks me in, it’s this one. A twitter feed that quickly identifies itself to be about Samiah’s “boyfriend” to be a cheating & scheming liar. Even better, she bands together with the women he dupes & creates a solid & likely friendship with them. For real, the book could have stopped there & I would be happy. For me, The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon is reminiscent of the strong female friendships I loved in Lauren Layne’s Central Pact series.
The Boyrfriend Project has some tension. Samiah’s love interest Daniel is not who he says he is. Well, kind of. He’s working undercover at her company to gain intel. I have not read a romantic suspense novel, but after loving this aspect of the story so much, this may be my next venture in the romance genre. This hidden secret creates underlying tension throughout & I think Farrah does a great job with this aspect.
Love a Texas Based Story
This story takes place in my hometown of Austin, TX. Farrah nails the humidity, the Hill Country & the downtown scene. There are so many familiar places & it warms my heart.
I am rooting for Samiah & Daniel throughout the novel. For me, this romance is believable & takes a more natural course. I really liked it & wanted to see them both be happy. They are both such upstanding citizens! I sound like an old Grandma saying that, but I just really love both of them. I want them to succeed.
I am Really Into This book! This is my first Farrah Rochon novel & I can’t wait to read more of her books. Also, I hope we get more stories from Samiah’s newfound friends. Read The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon if you’re in the mood for a believable romance with a side of suspense & a huge helping of badass females.
