Description

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 20 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 someone who has never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words, he’s 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 settles. 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.

Featured Article: Best Romance Authors For a Little Love Into Your Life

You can never have enough romance in your life. If there isn't enough in the real world, there's always an entire history of romance novels to get lost in, from the Victorian stylings of Jane Austen (who doesn't dream of Mr. Darcy?) to contemporary romance authors like Talia Hibbert After all, who doesn't love a good swoon from time to time? You can't beat a good love story, and there are many reasons why television and cinema are filled with adaptations of classics from the romance genre. Just look at the success of Netflix's Bridgerton, based on the Julia Quinn novels of the same name. Unsurprisingly, audiobook adaptations of romance novels are also a great hit, and these romance authors are worth paying serious attention to.

Here’s hoping!!

I absolutely loved this book. I cannot remember the last time I laughed out loud so much while reading. Honestly if I could have scored the performance higher than five stars I would have, Joe Jameson is amazing, he’s spot on with all his (and there were many) accents!! It was the ‘perfect storm’ of audiobooks, a very funny story, relatable, lovable characters and a wonderful narrator!! I’ve just finished it for the second time and already know I’ll be going back to it again soon!! I hope Alexis Hall and Joe Jameson are paired together again very soon!!!

One of the best books I’ve “read” this s year

This was a wonderful book at times touching, laugh out loud funny, and with very likeable characters. The narrator did a fabulous job as well. I would definitely recommend this audiobook.

Loved This Book

The plot might seem really trope-y, but it’s executed in an interesting and innovative way. Thoroughly enjoyable and I was really sad when it was over. I wanted to live with these characters for a little while longer! Audiobook performance was masterful. Amazing character voices!

Dryer than a James bond martini and just as delici

I don't usually read first person stories I have trouble identifying or getting absorbed into the book,so I decided to try an audio book.Im so glad I did. This was a fabulous book. The narrator pulled me in far easier than I expected and the author gave me the chance to really root for this couple. As well as many LOL moments, witty dialogue and some moments I would usually consider to sacrine or cringe worthy were instead just overwhelmingly sweet because I was so invested in the characters. Really, really brilliant job.So much so I think I'll go listen to it again. 😁

Truly a Surprise

as a fan of Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston i was a little weary on starting this as it seemed fairly similar.
But i was surprised, both in how different it was but also in how much i adored this book.
Joe Jameson does a wonderful job at bringing all of Hall’s characters to life and the listening experience over all was very good
my only fault to this book is the abrupt ending, it left me wanting so much more
but overall, for a fantastically tropey and soft NA rom com, it’s everything you could want and more

Amazing narration! Every character is individual and full of life. The story does an excellent job of balancing romance tropes and also having small twists you don't expect.

Deflightful book and incredible narration performance

This is my second read-through of this book, and my first time listening to the audiobook version. I had enjoyed my first read through, as the story is both very Rom-Com cute (pretend boyfriends, only one bed trope), the prose is funny, all while simultaneously managing to portray human beings in all their complexity. But this audiobook elevates this book. Joe Jameson’s performance truly enhances the wit, the cheek, and the emotion of it. He manages to make characters I’d found insufferable on my first read through actually charming. I have been obsessively listening to this, in a way I so very rarely manage to with audiobooks. Well done to both Alexis and Joe, and thank you.

The right material!

Boyfriend Material hit the right note of fun & funny yet serious enough to care.

I’ve been in a reading slump recently. It’s been hard to find a romance with real emotional growth from trying situations that aren’t so tragic that they’re too much to take because 2020 is a dumpster fire. I completely forgot about social distancing while watching Luc deftly schmooze donors for CRAPP. I liked Oliver enthusing about his career & making sure jokes weren’t mean spirited. I cheered when the hotelier refused to give out personal information about a guest. It was great that no one went stalker - they said their piece & took no for an answer. The solid couple of chapters full of parents and (appropriate) F-words were tense and interesting and healthy. I liked the use of internet grammar (such van, much emergency; clean all the things: we baconed in silence) and supportive friends.

I agree with the SBTB review that suggested a longer or additional final scene or epilogue would be in order. Not so much because they were lacking, but because I wanted more time with Oliver and Luc being together & good for each other. Revisiting the hedgehog boxers was a nice touch, but what I like about fake relationships is how they nudge the characters back together again and again until they catch their groove. There was so much good togetherness in the book as a whole, after a couple chapters of apartness (forgive me), I wanted more time with them being together again.

If you want a comedic romance that has light & fluffy moments, a running side gag of escalating book emergencies, good & bad parents, and emotion enough to tug the heartstrings, read Boyfriend Material. (If you haven’t belly laughed by the ~3rd page/chapter, it’s not your kind of humor. It is exactly the kind of humor I enjoy so I LOLed a lot.)

Steam: Low. The M/M sexytimes were slow to get going then off page.

Narration: Generally well done. Narrator used different voices for dialogue. Some of the choices made for female voices seemed a tad odd but overall it was pleasant listening. Good audio quality.

Meh...

I was so excited for this book and I was waiting for so long and now I feel deflated— 13 hours for hardly any romance or any actual story.. this book was unnecessarily long for no reason- 4 hours could have easily been shaved off and not missed any important details to the story because quite frankly there wasn’t any. The characters were bland and cold to the point where I kept asking myself if they were really attracted to each other or not.

Great read for fans of Red, White and Royal Blue

I always enjoy a good fake boyfriend yarn and these characters were compelling. The author’s breezy tone made it very hard for me to put this down! The narrator is an asset to the prose and a delight to listen to. Highly recommend! ❤️💙❤️💙

I love this book RIDICULOUS amounts

This book is a delight from the opening scene to the very last sentence. I've gushed at the author about it on Twitter. I've recommended it to every friend who'll listen. I'm not sure how many times I've listened to it (many), and it's only been out a few weeks. It's hilarious and heart-wrenching, and the characters are, despite their rom-com ways, deeply human and believable. I want to send Alexis Hall chocolates and medals and perhaps a nice cottage in the country. Since I can't do those things, I'll just tell you: buy this NOW.

Fabulous

My favorite book of this year, and my favorite narration. Both have helped to keep my world afloat in the chaos that is the year 2020. Listening a second time, has made it even better. This is bound to be my go to comfort audio. Joe Jameson is fabulous.

Enjoyable but more angst than romance

The story is funny and engaging enough to be entertaining, particularly the side characters. Narration was especially good. But there is zero heat and while the story is focused on a developing relationship, it’s not very romantic overall. If you enjoy witty banter and British stories, this is for you. But don’t expect the usual m/m romance elements.

Quirky, emotional, humorous , and sweet.

I loved this very typically quirky and often hilarious romance. All the characters - even the ridiculous over-the-top posh ones were well developed and truly made the book in my opinion. Like almost all of this author’s books it was outstanding! Between the times I found myself chuckling at the humor, I was tearing up because of Lucian’s pain and emotional damage. It was not an easy path to the HFN finale. I hope Hall has more books in the works because he is truly one of the most talented authors I’ve read - especially in this genre and it was a long wait for this latest publication. I’m so happy to find something of his again.

Wonderful

Alexis Hall is a wonderful writer whose characters are full of life and joy. You can feel the fun he has playing with language and the thoughtfulness put into it.

Joe Jameson did a fabulous performance. He was a full cast of characters himself. I particularly liked his upper class nitwit performance.

I highly recommend this book.

Amazing Narration, Good Story

Exceptional literature this is not. But it’s not what we got the book for. I really enjoyed the narration and found the story a lot of fun, it’s clearly a romance that supposed to do this kind of twisting turning thing, and the story had an aspect to it that a lot of gay fiction in this genre doesn’t tend to. The conclusion is wonderfully predictable, that’s why we’re reading it, and I felt a little like it didn’t quite rap it up for me. If you want a fun time (more than a 1 night stand, less than marriage), please enjoy!
