Review | Boyfriend Material


Rating: 4 out of 5.

About The Book

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 twenty 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 he’s never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words: 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 has settled. 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.


Firsts Impressions

Faking till you make it or so they say right? , so that exactly what they do, and it a super fun book actually, so if you are needing something light this it’s the perfect one.

The references to pop culture were pretty nice and I recognized a few and that made me happy and the book was relatable too because of that.

It was very light even with the problems they were traversing at the moment.


Luc was so lovable and enjoyable, I think he was a little crazy since all the traumatic events going on in his life.

Oliver was absolutely delectable too, he was so caring and thoughtful and just wanted someone real, but doesn’t we all? like that’s the goal of a relationship.

Loved Bridge so much, she was a force driven girl, she rock it every time.


We will find a lot of relationships from friends to boyfriend to soulmates, it just get to all the spectrum of it, even how bad families can get.

A little of trust issues but when not in a rom com, but I feel so identified with a lot of it.

Final Thoughts

By the end of the rollercoaster I was happy and ready for more of this craziness really, I just wanted to keep going forever, it was super entertaining and it went by in a flash, waiting the second part anxiously.
