I knew I had to read this book as soon as I read the premise, because that it’s an amazing idea and I just had this instant feeling that the book would be a lot of fun. So, when I got the ARC, I was very happy and just waited till the right moment to pick it up. And I’m so glad I did.

The loved the way this book started. Despite the fact that the three woman are catfished by a guy and their whole encounter goes viral on the internet (it’s my worst nightmare and I’m pretty skeptical about going viral plot lines), I liked that the author concentrated more on the friendship that develops between the three of them and the feeling of solidarity it provides. I know how hard it is to find genuine friendships as an adult, so I really loved seeing such a good one develop between this trio. As most of the story takes place in a tech company, I really enjoyed the workplace vibe that the author managed to create, and it felt like something I would love to work at. Along with the friendship and a very fun romantic plot line, we also get some mystery elements but they do remain mostly in the background and never takeover the story. The writing is very easy to breeze through, and I didn’t wanna put it down at all because I was having so much fun.

Samiah is a great character. An accomplished black woman in the tech industry, she is hardworking, smart, driven and ambitious, but she also wants to do everything she can to help other young women of color succeed in the industry and provide them the support that she didn’t receive. She sets too high expectations, beats herself up for not achieving them even though it’s not her fault, and takes on all the weight in the world - but she also knows her worth and doesn’t let anyone question or undermine her credentials. She is a role model and someone to look up to, and any tech company in the real world would be lucky to have someone like her as an employee.

Daniel on the other hand is almost perfect - sweet, sensitive, thoughtful, and just the right kind of charming. I really liked that he always listened to Samiah and understood her POV and where she was coming from, and never invalidated her experiences. I loved the flirtation they had going, and the witty banter made me very happy. The romance development was more on the sweeter side than steamy, but I think that’s what I wanted at this time. There is of course the mystery surrounding Daniel which leads to some back and forth between them and bit of a heartache, but I can’t talk about it much without going into spoilery territory. But I felt that playing up the mystery element more could have been fascinating.

As I mentioned before, I adored the friendship between Samiah, Taylor and London. They just have this instant connection and the way they motivated each other, and also called out when something was wrong, was amazing and as a woman reader, it naturally reminded me of my girlfriends. I also loved Samiah’s sister and the dynamic they shared, though we don’t get to see them together a lot.

In the end, I can just say that this was a fun love story with great characters, and a solid friend group that’ll remind you of your own. And apart from the friendship element, it was the main character’s accomplishments and goals as a black woman in tech, and the way she handled any obstacles in her way that was the highlight of this novel for me. This was my first book by the author but I know it won’t be my last and if my guess is correct, the next book is gonna be Taylor’s story and I’m already excited for it. ( )

Samiah Brooks might just be my hero. Smart, sexy, super career focused and just all around an amazing woman who finds out her current boyfriend is cheating on her and gets her revenge in the most epic of ways. She meets two other women in the process and together they decide to focus on themselves instead of men for the next 6 months. Of course, in the meantime, super tempting, sexy man Daniel starts working at Samiah's company and sparks happen.

What I liked so much about this book, besides the banter, was that Samiah made no apologies for being who she is. She knew what she wanted and worked really hard to get where she was in life. Daniel respected that and was instrumental in supporting her to achieve her goals.

The only thing keeping me from giving this five stars is the deception. I won't go in to details but I have a hard time with deception in stories and I just kept yelling SAY SOMETHING. I fully get why the author chose to keep up the ruse but it made me a bit uncomfortable so I couldn't give the story five stars.

This book was so close to perfect and the best thing for a reading slump. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance copy. ( )

Listened to half an hour of the audiobook and I didn't take it. So it might have been good - I got it from a favorite romance novels list. ( )

Great diversity was showcased in “The Boyfriend Project” and a decent assembled group of characters, so kudos to the author! Minus that, everything else was meh. It was a pretty mediocre read and there wasn’t anything besides what was listed above that stood out. I just wish there was that something something to win me over but there is potential for sure so I look forward to seeing what else this author releases in the future.

A contemporary, light romcom set in the tech world of Austin, Texas. I enjoyed the strong female friendships and the office romance. There was enough of a mystery to move the plot along and provide tension between the main characters. It seems to be the first in a series and I'll definitely check out the next one. ( )
