Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Book Boyfriend, by Carina Rose

Release Date: October 28

After Callie’s debut romance novel is an unexpected hit, she thinks nothing can surprise her—until the man of her dreams seems to walk out of the book and into her life.

The last thing Callie Richardson expected was her debut romance novel, Ready to Fall, to top the charts. Nor did she think her readers would become obsessive over her book’s hero, Hudson Newman.
Life couldn’t get any stranger. But then her assistant announces that Hudson Newman wants to see her. She’s convinced her best friend is playing a joke on her, because no one in her office knows she’s written a book. Plus, the name is fictional, a mashup of famous actors.
So when the stunning man steps into her office, she thinks she must be dreaming. Except this Hudson Newman wears a scowl rather than a model-worthy smile. After confirming his name is in fact the same as her character’s, he proceeds to tell Callie that her book’s success has turned his orderly world upside down.
Not only that, but her readers have set out to make Hudson the hero of their hoped-for romances. After weeks of receiving gifts—from candy to lingerie to things that make Callie blush—Hudson has had enough and tells Callie she needs to get her overzealous fans off his back. He smiles smugly and gives her two choices—delist the book or date him.
That was the moment Callie found herself in a fake relationship with a real-life book boyfriend.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

The Book Boyfriend is an absolute hoot! I can seriously see this book being a Hallmark movie. Callie and Hudson are great characters, and Carina Rose does a fantastic job of executing this strangers/enemies-to-lovers/fake relationship storyline.

Romance author Callie’s debut novel is a phenomenal success — but as her star rises, Hudson, businessman who happens to share the name of Callie’s hero finds that his life has become a disaster. Her fans have been sending him gifts, racing lingerie — and he wants it to stop. While Hudson initially wants Callie to take down her book, he has a bit of an a-ha moment and declares that Callie should pretend to be his girlfriend instead

As these two embark on a fake relationship, their adventures are hilarious. As Callie and Hudson fall for one another, and this clean romance has lots of heart and swoon. They both have some baggage that has them trying to protect their hearts, but as they open up to one another, there is a beautiful friendship that develops and eventually leads to love.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
