The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon

4 STARS

Release Date: June 9, 2020

Publisher: Forever

SYNOPSIS: Samiah Brooks never thought she would be “that” girl. But a live tweet of a horrific date just revealed the painful truth: she’s been catfished by a three-timing jerk of a boyfriend. Suddenly Samiah-along with his two other “girlfriends,” London and Taylor-have gone viral online. Now the three new besties are making a pact to spend the next six months investing in themselves. No men, no dating, and no worrying about their relationship status . . .

For once Samiah is putting herself first, and that includes finally developing the app she’s always dreamed of creating. Which is the exact moment she meets the deliciously sexy, honey-eyed Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? When it comes to love, there’s no such thing as a coincidence. But is Daniel really boyfriend material or is he maybe just a little too good to be true?

REVIEW: This was a super fun read. I mean the way Samiah, Taylor, and London meet was so entertaining! I was laughing out loud from when Samiah was with her sister, to how she handled everything at the restaurant. It was fun to see these women develop friendships. I just feel like this was very female driven and you wanted to root for all of the main characters! When Daniel appears, you just know he’s going to be exactly what he needs to be. It was just nice to see two smart and kind people develop a relationship! I would definitely recommend this one.

Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey

5 STARS!

Release Date: June 11, 2019

Publisher: Avon

SYNOPSIS

After an injury ends Travis Ford’s major league baseball career, he returns home to start over. He just wants to hammer out his frustrations at his new construction gig and forget all about his glory days. But he can’t even walk through town without someone recapping his greatest hits. Or making a joke about his… bat. And then there’s Georgie, his buddy’s little sister, who is definitely not a kid anymore.

Georgette Castle has crushed on her older brother’s best friend for years. The grumpy, bear of a man working for her family’s house flipping business is a far cry from the charming sports star she used to know. But a moody scowl doesn’t scare her and Georgie’s determined to show Travis he’s more than a pretty face and a batting average, even if it means putting her feelings aside to be “just friends.”

Travis wants to brood in peace. But the girl he used to tease is now a funny, full-of-life woman who makes him feel whole again. And he wants her. So damn bad. Except Georgie’s off limits and he knows he can’t give her what she deserves. But she’s becoming the air he breathes and Travis can’t stay away, no matter how hard he tries… 

REVIEW

Are you wondering if a book can be absolutely adorable and absolutely filthy at the the same time? Well the answer is YES, yes it can. This book was a wonderful surprise from the very first scene–which includes flying food and is my favorite by the way. You’ll see.

Georgie is a sassy, smart, little spitfire! Honestly, I just fell absolutely in love with her in this book. Her strength as she pursues her dreams and supports her friends is so inspiring. Which leads me to the female friendships that are developing in this story. These ladies are supporting each other, listening to each other, and rooting for each other. It’s beautiful really, and adds so much to the story. I can’t wait for book two–Love Her or Lose Her–where we get the story of the next strong lady in the group!

Travis Ford is one damaged man, and I’m here for the growth. You don’t get to choose your biological family, and you sure as hell can’t stop bad things from happening, but you can’t give up. We get to watch Travis figure this out and it’s so heart warming. Plus, his sexy side, I mean this book is STEAMY. I hope you’re ready for his filthy mouth!
