Synopsis (via Goodreads): Wanted:
One (fake) boyfriend
Practically perfect in every way

Luc O'Donnell is tangentially--and reluctantly--famous. His rock star parents split when he was young, and the father he's never met spent the next twenty years cruising in and out of rehab. Now that his dad's making a comeback, Luc's back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.

To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship...and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. He's a barrister, an ethical vegetarian, and he's never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words: perfect boyfriend material. Unfortunately apart from being gay, single, and really, really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust has settled. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.

But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that's when you get used to someone. Start falling for them. Don't ever want to let them go.

  1. Fake dating and then falling for them is fun to read about.

  2. I started this book the other day, and it was funny, but for some reason, I felt like I was slogging through it. I am going to pick it up again though. I think it was just my mood, because I laughed a lot as I was reading it.

    1. I hope it picks up! I really like the premise and would hate for it to be a flop. My mood is a huge factor when I'm reading, so fingers crossed you get some more laughs! :)

  3. Cute pick! Totally new to me one. Hope you love it once you get to read it!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. It's been a while since I've read a LGBTQ+ book! I had planned on reading more during the month of June, but it didn't work out.

  4. Boyfriend Material sounds super cute!

    1. It does! I hope the story is as good as its synopsis. :)

  5. I have Boyfriend Material that I really need to read soon. It sounds great.


    1. Jealous! ;) I'll make sure to look for your review!

  6. Boyfriend Material is definitely on my radar. It totally gives my RW&RB vibes (maybe it's the cover?) so that works in its favor. :)

    1. I still haven't read Red White & Royal Blue! It's been on my TBR for ages, and everyone else seems to love it. <3
