Review: The Boyfriend by Mika Jolie

According to the law of attraction, women and men can’t be friends.

Contrary to this myth, my friendship with Coriander Phillips does not rest on unrequited love or un-actualized lust. We’ve been inseparable since the day I pulled one of her pigtails and she punched me in the gut.
She’s hilarious, fun to hang out with. Together, we’re like peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and meatballs, wings and beer. A match made in heaven.
She’s the bomb.
Did I mention she’s smokin’ hot? I’ve checked her out…maybe once or twice. Hey, I’m a guy.
Seriously, no awkwardness, no secret yearning for our relationship to escalate beyond the purely platonic. I’m the boy friend—the loyal shoulder she cries on, the dispenser of coffee, sympathy, hugs, advice, and affection with no expectations.
Until the invisible line between friends and lovers became blurry.
Now I want more. I want her.
All I have to do is convince her we can be more than friends.
If only it were that easy.


My Review

“I am consumed by desire to mark her as mine and possess her. A need I never knew I’d feel for a woman. A need that is so intense, it wrenches a deep, rough male groan from me as I pull her, caveman-style into me.”

The Boy Friend is a super cute friends to lovers romance. This story was told all from Dean’s point of view and I just loved getting inside of his head and hearing his thoughts.

From the moment I met Cori and Dean,  I couldn’t help but fall in love with the two of them. Their chemistry was amazing and I just loved their friendship. Their friendship was one that had stood the test of time and one that you just knew was destined for more. Watching these two fall and navigate their way to happily ever after was a complete joy to watch. I couldn’t get enough of them and was on pins and needles waiting to see how their story would turn out.

The Boy Friend was a quick and fun read for me. I devoured it easily in just one sitting. I thought the story-line was a lot of fun and if you know me, you know I am a total sucker for friends to lovers romances. And I’m happy to say that The Boy Friend hit all the marks for me. It was fun, and flirty. It was sexy with just the right amount of angst. It had great push and pull. And a romance that just keeps you begging for more. This is my first book by this author and I can already tell, it won’t be my last. I look forward to checking out more from her in the future.
