Book Boyfriend by DC Renee

What would you do if you ran into a real life book boyfriend?

You might scream or maybe giggle.

You might play coy or maybe stare.

You might ask for a picture or maybe an autograph.

You might call your girlfriends or maybe post about it.

What did I do? I ran. Literally.

Kim was a typical college student with a splash of dorky, a dash of funny, and a pinch of clumsy…well, maybe more than a pinch. After making a fool of herself in front of her classmate Brent, and his friend, Travis, a dead-ringer for one her book boyfriends, she tried to stay away. But after a few hilarious chance encounters, they became fast friends.

And then came the bet. It was Travis versus Brent, but somehow Kim got roped in to help team Travis. He was supposed to find and woo his real life book girlfriend. What could go wrong with a couple of college kids and an innocent bet? Let the shenanigans and laughter ensue! And maybe add in a bit of friendship, fun and most definitely, love. 

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

I haven't laughed so much when reading a book as I did with this! The concept of this shouldn't work but it so does in all its hilarious glory.

When Kim first sees Travis and finds out more about him, she can't help but see the similarities between him and a book boyfriend of the same name. Kim has a tendency to babble on when she's nervous and reveals all of this to Travis and his friend Brent, before falling flat on her backside in her desire to escape quickly.

Kim is so down to earth that most women will completely relate to her, with her propensity to speak her mind and her accident proneness. When Travis is challenged to find a book girlfriend, Kim steps up to tutor him. It is great fun and the banter is so natural. The three, Kim, Travis and Brent are very close friends, so when two of them grow closer, how will it impact on their relationships?

Hilariously funny with awesome, down to earth characters and bizarre situations that you just have to read to believe! A firm favourite in my eyes.

DC Renee has been writing all her life, from cheesy poems in elementary school (i'll share an example just so you know how cheesy: Flowers are my favorite thing; they usually bloom during spring. Pink, blue, yellow and green, so many colors that I have seen...etc.) to short stories and monologues, and eventually fan fictions for Days of Our Lives.

It was thanks to that superbly encouraging fan fiction community that DC found the courage to publish her first book - Let Me Go. It held fast in the top 100 Best Selling Contemporary Romance Fiction Novels on Amazon for over a month, going as low as the top 20's. Naturally, she loves to read, but she also likes watching hockey, dancing for fun, and loves her family.
