All the butterfly feels in this beautiful romance! Without Eric's permission, his friend uses him as a beta tester for his new Boyfriend Experience app, despite the fact that Eric has absolutely no experience as a Boyfriend. He's kept all his encounters relationship-free because of his history. But when he meets Evie, his plans to let her down easy fly out the window and he's compelled to see it through. Evie doesn't want to deal with the drama of her recent breakup when she sees her family for their annual reunion, so the boyfriend for hire seems like a perfect solution. She knows there'll be nothing continuing afterwards, and that works just fine for her. The story really gets right to the emotional heart of things, and does so beautifully. The symbolism of the butterflies was exquisite, adding so much depth with just a few images. I really enjoyed this love story, and the HEA was nicely wrapped up. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

I loved Evie and Eric’s love story in The Boyfriend Experience, another hit for co-authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. Eric should have known better than to drink and tick off his app designer friend; especially since that designer signed him up for his dating app without his knowledge. Evie is desperately in need of a date for her family reunion; one who knows how to treat a woman well, unlike the jerks she previously dated. While searching on the Boyfriend Experience App Evie finds Eric and the two make plans to meet. Eric had not planned to go through with it but once he saw her in person he changed his mind. Eric was an amazing hero who understands how to treat a woman and make her feel the luckiest and most important person in the world. I loved getting to know these two characters along with their families. The love they shared made each of them stronger and better people. Combining their voices Ms. Phillips and Ms. Wilde created a wonderful, emotional and moving story filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, some laughs and endearing characters that is not to be missed. I highly recommend The Boyfriend Experience to other readers I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

***5 ‘I Want to Kiss You’ Stars*** If you’re looking for a fun, flirty, smexy read with a lot of heart, minimal drama and some great characters thrown into the mix, then this one is a must read. I was just going to take a peek at the first chapter or so...yeah, about 2 hrs later and I’m here writing up a review because I couldn’t put it down (I should have because of that #workthing...but) and really wish there were more words to read. I adored Evie and Eric. Evie is the kind of person you’d want to be friends with. She’s vivacious, compassionate and sassy and has a golden heart that shines through in everything she does Eric has that thing, that...charisma, charm, confidence that just draws you in because you can feel just how genuine it is and combined with an alpha nature that comes out at just the right time...well, the man is simply lethal. Their journey to their HEA is all kinds of fun. From the moment they meet, the sparks fly and though things happen quickly, they bond they formed felt real. They complimented each other perfectly and they just fit. There is a bit of a bump in the road, it wasn’t an unexpected one, but I have to say that I loved how it all worked out in the end. I’ve read books by this writing duo before and they did not disappoint with this one. It’s a quick read but it hit all the right emotional buttons for me from start to finish. And as for the supporting cast of characters, I ADORED Evie’s family ~ well, with the exception of two ~ they were all kinds of goodness and really did bring a lot of good times to this baby. So, if you’re looking for a romance that’ll leave you with sore cheeks from smiling so much, as well as them being a little pink from the smexy, then this one is a definite must read for you! ~ Copy provided by the author & voluntarily reviewed ~
