Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she’d been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend— two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it’s not the real Bradley she’s thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn’t even know. But tracking him down doesn’t mean they’re done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend’s graduation party — three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

my rambles

There has not been a book by Kasie West that I haven’t felt the need to gush over, and The Fill-In Boyfriend was no exception. If you’re in need of an adorable, unlikely romance that will put a smile on your face, then you’re in for a real treat!

I couldn’t have read the book at a better time, as I had just gone to my prom (dateless, of course). I absolutely loved the way that Gia and fill-in Bradley (I won’t spoil his name because if you read the book, you’ll know it’s important) first met, and their interactions throughout the book.

Basically, the two of them are so freaking cute that I physically didn’t put the book down for want to keep reading the high levels of fluff and adorableness that were oozing from The Fill-In Boyfriend‘s pages.

As you can tell from the title of this review, I don’t really have words to write because all I can really think of when I turn my brain to this book is: CUTE SWEET SWOON ADORABLE I WANT THAT BOY I WANT THIS RELATIONSHIP THIS BOOK IS PERF KASIE WEST I LOVE YOU. [Cee has written a wonderful post on the syndrome I’m having more and more often which is the “I love you too much to review you syndrome.”]

So, that’s pretty much all I have to say to you about this book other than READ IT. *throws book at your face*

  1. Books you love are way harder to review (but at least more fun) than books you didn’t like! I loved Kasie West’s other contemporary romances, so I’ll have to pick this one up! 🙂

  2. Great review! I really need to read more Kasie West and Sarah Dessen books because they seem to be the queens of YA Contemporary. It’s funny because I love YA contemporary, and I haven’t yet read them. I can’t wait to read this now!

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
