The Perfect Boyfriend by Renee Novelle
Title: The Perfect Boyfriend
Author: Renee Novelle
Book #2 in the Boyfriend series. The Perfect Boyfriend picks up right where we left Reagan and Ian in The Boyfriend List. As their friendship blossoms quickly into a steamy romance, Reagan and Ian have to learn to navigate their shifting relationship...and everything that entails. But their newfound bliss doesn’t come without a few unexpected challenges. In the midst of realizing just how sweet the romance can be between them, and all the benefits of their new dynamic, Reagan is informed that her ideal situation has changed. Not only will she need to begin taking on more classes to speed up her graduation date, but she’ll also have to start looking for a job to supplement her fading income. Meanwhile, Ian has chosen to pull out of school once his father is diagnosed with a terminal illness in order to help manage the family business and spend time with him while he still can. But he wrestles with the guilt of leaving Reagan behind, and the pressure of his new responsibilities. As the two meet their new challenges head-on, they’ll be forced to discover whether or not they’re as compatible as lovers as they were as friends. With their focus pulled in so many directions, will they have what it takes to keep a long distance relationship alive? Can Ian prove that he’s still be the perfect boyfriend, or will they fold to statistics under the growing tensions of their lives? Throw in some manipulative exes, a new boss with an inflated ego, and a co-worker from hell and the two have a recipe for either a fairy tale ending, or a complete disaster. The Perfect Boyfriend is a New Adult Romance about trust, love, and discovering the true depths of personal strength.
First off I would like to say that this is the second book in the series and it pickes up exactly where we left Ian and Reagan in the first book, The Boyfriend List. I adore this relationship and the first book so much that I couldn't wait to read this one. So much so that I picked The Perfect Boyfriend up the same night I finished The Boyfriend List.
This author has a way with grabbing your attention and drawing you into a story that I couldn't help but get caught up in their roller coaster of a relationship. Yep I said roller coaster, I mean what relationship doesn't have it's problems and this one did have it's fair share. Which to me made me connect with them even more. I can't stand those perfect little people and their perfect little lives, and this book didn't have that.
I did laugh at lot when reading this one, there are some great funny parts that I enjoyed immensely. I also really loved seeing the characters grow from the first book to the second, it shows character depth and that's really important to me when I'm reading a book series.
All in all this book is a great book about life and growing as a person and through a relationship. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
With all of that being said I will have to give The Perfect Boyfriend an Ali's Bookshelf...
