Description

A smart and delightful romantic comedy featuring fabulous female friendships and "a great love story" (Jasmine Guillory, best-selling author of Party of Two).

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?

"A smart, funny digital-age romance about real women living in the real world. Couldn't put it down!" (Abby Jimenez, USA Today best-selling author of The Happy Ever After Playlist)

This read like a self righteous textbook.

This book could have been half as long as the author only repeated herself once.

I was really excited to get into this book, and I was really excited at the killer opening. It was funny and interesting. I really loved the diversity between the three women we meet right off the bat. One is in STEM, one is a personal trainer, and the other is a doctor. They're all treated poorly by the same dude, and instead of getting angry at each other, they all get angry at him, and become besties. I love this.

This is where the things I loved ended. There was no chemistry between the male and female love interests, I felt that the sex scene was boring, and the only reason I finished it is because I'm going to talk about it on a YouTube video.

Parts of this book were important. I did like the discussion on the challenges of being a black woman, and especially a black women in STEM. I felt it very understandable and relatable to hear the main character talk about how she had to be perfect because she was the representative for all black women in STEM who would come after her. I have often worked in male-dominated spaces and have felt this way too.

But at the end of the day this is a romance novel on the romance sucked. The internal monologues were so long, and the decision-making and rationale of some of the characters was questionable.

I wanted to like this, really I did!

I spend a lot of my time listening to audio books and have come to the conclusion that ratings matter. I do not select my books easily and read through several reviews before making my selections.

This book was highly rated by some that had equally high reviews for other titles I enjoyed. Wow. How this book scored so high is an absolute mystery to me.

I didn't hate this book, but it was more like a predictable Hallmark movie than a good story. Everyone was too perfect that it was just too, too sticky sweet. Unrealistic beyond acceptable. The physical scenes were too graphic for my taste, not to mention ridiculous.

I liked some of the narration, but other times, the fluctuation was completely off or way over the top with enthusiasm where it wasn't warranted.

I stuck through it only because I hadn't downloaded another book and listened while I traveled. Ugh.

ok to pass the time but not great

I love to be swept off of my feet with a story but this just was not it. However it was a decent story to listen to, I just didnt fall in love with it.

I couldn't even finish it

I tried really hard to finish this book but I couldn't. It pulls you in with the viral incident in the beginning and then it just draaags. And the narrator..... I just couldn't. I wanted to love it because the premise seemed interesting but the story didn't move. I might come back to it one day but for now it's returned. The one good thing I will say is that I love love stories with Black professional characters in it. The genre needs the diversity

Misstitled

I didn't enjoy the voice of the reader. Her voice representation for each character was a bit exaggerated. The title was also a bit misleading on the actual plot of the book IMO. I expected to spend more time reading about the relationship between the woman and their Boyfriend project pact when in actuality the story line was about Daniel and Samiah.

Beautiful female friendships.

I had made a promise to myself that I would make a point of reading books by more diverse writers and characters. I fell in live with this cover, so I decided to give it a try. There are so many parts to this book that I adored. The true understanding and explanation of not only a woman in the tech world, but also a woman of color. I love the focus it has on this and the importance of having to be perfect and being the one to help to make the change happen. This is a love story, but it really is a story of the importance of female friendships and the need to have supportive female friendships. I loved getting to see these women evolve from random meeting to true best friends. I also adored how all the women were successful and have their own story. It is rare to have real friendships like that. I promise you there is romance in this, but it is not your typical romance. This story is not at angsty, there is no big horrible ordeal at the end. This story is more about Samyah and her growth. Do not read if you are looking for a super hot steamy romance. This book is more than that. My one negative is I do t love when the female narrator narrates for both the male and female POV. I wish they would have used a male narrator for his parts. I think I would’ve enjoyed this book more if I would have read instead of listened.

Omg! That ending!

Amazing strong woman...check. Hot Federal Agent...check. Hooked from the very first chapter. Definitely will listen to this one again and again! Now I need London and Taylor's stories as well!

Narrator

Fleming had trouble phrasing as she read which sometimes made it difficult to follow. The story was fun.

Great contemporary AA romance

The narrator did a great job with this audible romance. Nice to listen to a narrator who gets the language and intonations of black women. The story was no different than current romance listens. Just nice to relate with the characters on a deeper level. Keep up the good work FR. Hope the other female characters get their own stories soon.
