What would you do if you ran into a real life book boyfriend?
You might scream or maybe giggle.
You might play coy or maybe stare.
You might ask for a picture or maybe an autograph.
You might call your girlfriends or maybe post about it.
What did I do? I ran. Literally.
Kim was a typical college student with a splash of dorky, a dash of funny, and a pinch of clumsy…well, maybe more than a pinch. After making a fool of herself in front of her classmate Brent, and his friend, Travis, a dead-ringer for one her book boyfriends, she tried to stay away. But after a few hilarious chance encounters, they became fast friends.
And then came the bet. It was Travis versus Brent, but somehow Kim got roped in to help team Travis. He was supposed to find and woo his real life book girlfriend. What could go wrong with a couple of college kids and an innocent bet? Let the shenanigans and laughter ensue! And maybe add in a bit of friendship, fun and most definitely, love.
OMG this book had me laughing so hard in parts!
I LOVED Kim. She is so….normal. She’s a clutz, she speaks before she thinks, and she totally loves books. Her ramblings had me cracking up.
I found myself switching teams to the point I thought, eh, I’ll take joint custody of both the guys. Each one had something special about them. Travis had the looks, that cocky charm, while Brent had that sweet “I’ll be there forever” vibe that you just can’t ignore. Some of the dates that Kim sets Travis up on were simply hilarious! She took each stereotype and made them fit in to this story perfectly. And the result was comedy gold.
Of course, it can’t all be fun and games. After all, SOMEONE has to find their book boyfriend. Leave it to Kim’s trusty bff to throw a cog in to the works!
This was certainly lighter than DC’s other works and it just goes to prove her skill. If you are looking for something light, fun, flirty with a book geek heroine and 2 perfect book boyfriends, then you need this book. It’s the perfect read to combat the holiday stress!
4 hilarious stars
DC Renee has been writing all her life, from cheesy poems in elementary school
(i’ll share an example just so you know how cheesy: Flowers are my favorite
thing; they usually bloom during spring. Pink, blue, yellow and green, so many
colors that I have seen…etc.) to short stories and monologues, and eventually
fan fictions for Days of Our Lives.It was thanks to that superbly encouraging fan fiction community that DC found
the courage to publish her first book – Let Me Go. It held fast in the top 100
Best Selling Contemporary Romance Fiction Novels on Amazon for over a month,
going as low as the top 20’s. Naturally, she loves to read, but she also likes
watching hockey, dancing for fun, and loves her family.
