I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to do this — just ask some random guy to pretend to be my boyfriend. Of course, in my scenario it’s more for my family than my friends. Either way, I love this cute concept and cute book. It’s a fun, light-hearted romance that just makes you feel hopeful about love.

The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West:1410206712000-FillInBoyfriend HC C

When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she decides to do the unthinkableā€¦convince the cute guy waiting to pick up his sister to pretend to be her boyfriend for the night. The task is simple: two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

The problem is that days after prom, she can’t stop thinking about her fill-in boyfriend. But can Gia turn her fake boyfriend into a real one without exposing her lie and possibly destroying her friendships and her newfound relationship?

Smartly observed and wonderfully romantic, Kasie West’s talent shines in this tale of one girl’s unexpected quest to find loveā€¦and possibly herself.
