Sometimes, blackmail is the only weapon a girl has…

Haley Patterson has had a crush on golden boy Bryce Colton for ages. But when she hears a rumor that he hooked up with her she gives him a choice: be her boyfriend for a month to show other guys that she’s dateable—despite her overprotective and very intimidating brothers—or deal with the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did hook up with.

Bryce didn’t know the other Haley even had a boyfriend. He was just trying to get his ex off his back. And now, not only is he being blackmailed, he's being blackmailed by an honor student. His new “girlfriend” has two three-legged dogs, her father mows grass at the country club, and she's…well, difficult. And different.

Can something so fake turn into something real?

My Review:

From the cute cover to the story plot, I absolutely had a great time reading Blackmail Boyfriend. It was a book that became a page-turner to me that I could not stop reading it until the very end.

In this particular story, we follow Haley Patterson a high school junior who has always been her brothers' “litter sister,” and that causes a major problem for her since she wants to have fun and go out with guys. But having older brothers who could literally crush anyone that steps closer to her prevents guys from asking her out. When she arrives to school one day, she finds out that the whole school is talking about her and her night with golden boy Bryce Colton, which was all a lie and she intended on finding out why Bryce was spreading rumors about her.

When Bryce tells her that he did indeed slept with a Haley, and it wasn't her. When they see that the real Haley has a boyfriend, and if he finds out that Bryce slept with her he was going to be in trouble, and that is when Haley P. sees the opportunity to blackmail her crush into pretending to be her boyfriend for a few weeks or she is going to tell Haley's boyfriend that Bryce slept with his girlfriend. Bryce has no other choice but to accept, and that is when the story really begins. As the two start to fake dating in front of everyone, soon things start to get real, and the both will have to learn to accept their feelings for each other at the end.

What I enjoyed about the book was how we get to see the characters develop. Haley has always being the baby of the family and her overprotective brothers make things difficult for her when she tries to date. Her love for animals and down to earth personality is what intrigues Bryce. His life in particular has always been about what he has and who his family is that he is not aware of what is happening around him. He is in his little world and he likes to have everything at his beck-and-call. By blackmailing him, Haley brings Bryce out of his comfort zone and soon they are enjoying spending time with each other. This book is definitely about two total opposites coming together as they learn to overcome obstacles in their lives. Although this book is all about Bryce and Haley, we do get to read about their friends' relationship, and the impact that it makes in their relationship. Overall, the book is well-written and funny. The ending could have been better with an epilogue, but it's still a really good book that I highly recommend reading. :)

Sounds like a cute read overall. I don't know if it's quite the fit for me, but you never know! I'm glad you liked it though.
