The Boyfriend Project by: Farrah Rochon


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?

I just finished reading this about half an hour ago and OMG I loved it so much. This would definitely qualify as a slow-burn as both Samiah and Daniel are apprehensive, of starting up anything, for very different reasons. The chemistry is undeniable, from the very first moment they make eye contact, though they both try to remain in the “friendly co-worker” zone they both know the temptation, for more, just keeps growing.

This book does an amazing job of showing multiple layers of each character that just has you loving them more and more as well as rooting for them to be together. I also love that both characters are adults about how they communicate and how they handle whatever situations pop up. There are so many romance novels I’ve read that conflict happens and it’s like the characters revert to middle school and act like children, lashing out, instead of either taking a step back to re-evaluate or communicating until they have clarity. It’s honestly refreshing to find a novel where, although they may be internally freaking out, they take the time to process instead of lashing out like children.

If you’re looking for an office place, slow-burn, romance between two equally caring and career-driven individuals who, try as they might, can’t fight their growing attraction…then look no further! Let me tell you those steamy kisses, and emotional support, are the perfect kindling for the fire that burns between these two.

Growing up, Japanese and Indigenous, it was hard to find books that showcased stories and worlds that accurately portrayed Noelle’s experiences. Fantasy quickly became her main love, as you could really be anyone, anywhere. As the years went on, and technology grew, Noelle was finally able to see more stories and authors that looked and felt like her. Noelle is open to all genre’s though she can mostly be found reading own voice, fantasy, and romance. Ratings: 5 Stars: Completely blew me away 4 Stars: Loved the story but didn't feel completely blown away by it 3 Stars: Liked the overall concept of the story but either had poor execution, had a lot of plot holes, or was written poorly 2 Stars: I struggled to understand the plot, poorly written, or just had really unlikeable characters along with a poor writing 1 Star: Horribly written, major plot holes, or extremely unlikeable characters and plots.
