About this ebook

A smart and delightful romantic comedy featuring fabulous female friendships and "a great love story." --Jasmine Guillory, bestselling author of Party of Two 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 and no dating. 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 Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? But is Daniel really boyfriend material or is he maybe just a little too good to be true? "A smart, funny digital-age romance about real women living in the real world. Couldn't put it down!" --Abby Jimenez, USA Today bestselling author of The Happy Ever After Playlist

The Boyfriend Project was a book that I was excited to read because based on the premise, an office romance, I thought I would really enjoy it. While there were definitely things I did enjoy, there were other aspects that just didn't quite hit home for me. Samiah Brooks was in a new relationship and things were going well at work until she discovers that her new boyfriend is cheating on her with not one, but two other women. After outing him in a restaurant with the video going viral, what ends up happening next was pretty cool. Samiah forms a bond with the other two women, Taylor and London, and they decide that for the next six months they are going to focus on themselves and not on romantic relationships. In theory that sounds great until a new guy starts at Samiah's work. Daniel Collins has just landed a job at the tech firm where Samiah works and he's ready to get to get down to business. What he doesn't anticipate is being taken by the gorgeous, accomplished woman. While he has sworn off relationships himself, he finds any reason to be around Samiah. Will he really be able to resist starting something up with her even if there could be other consequences? I enjoyed the friendship between Samiah, Taylor and London. It was everything your relationships with your girlfriends should be. There were several things I struggled with throughout the book, but I think the biggest thing is that it lacked romance and then when it was there it felt very rushed. There were a couple of times that I felt like I had whiplash because we went from point A to point B so quickly. I wanted to love this book, but while it was enjoyable, it missed the mark for me.

Full review at I am, Indeed The first (I don’t know HOW) I’ve read from Rochon, this story was exactly the sort of read I needed right now. Three women, bonding over their mistreatment at the hands of an unworthy man brings their support and friendship to the forefront. From talking through questions of ‘what’s next’ career-wise, to shoring up the momentary confidence wobbles, and even simply enjoying and anticipating their time together, Samiah, London and Taylor are people you want to know and are facing the issues that many women face with career, life and romantic options. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Great diversity was showcased in “The Boyfriend Project” and a decent assembled group of characters, so kudos to the author! Minus that, everything else was meh. It was a pretty mediocre read and there wasn’t anything besides what was listed above that stood out. I just wish there was that something something to win me over but there is potential for sure so I look forward to seeing what else this author releases in the future.
