The hottest player on the Moo U hockey team hangs a flyer on the bulletin board, and I am spellbound:
Rent a boyfriend for the holiday. For $25, I will be your Thanksgiving date. I will talk hockey with your dad. I will bring your mother flowers. I will be polite, and wear a nicely ironed shirt…
Now everyone knows it’s a bad idea to introduce your long-time crush to your messed-up family. But I really do need a date for Thanksgiving, even if I’m not willing to say why. So I tear his phone number off of that flyer… and accidentally entangle our star defenseman in a ruse that neither of us can easily unwind.
Because Weston’s family is even nuttier than mine. He needs a date, too, for the most uncomfortable holiday engagement party ever thrown.
There will be hors d’oeuvre. There will be faked PDA. And there will be pro-level awkwardness…
Boyfriend is a full-length stand-alone romance for Weston and Abbi!
Weston is a loyal friend, a great teammate and popular with the ladies however he is always very clear that he is looking for fun not forever. His relationship with his family is complicated so he prefers to avoid what he knows is going to be an awkward situation by renting out his boyfriend services for Thanksgiving however he didn’t expect that the beautiful waitress at the restaurant where he and the team frequents would be the one to take him up on his offer.
Abbi has a complicated family situation of her own as she tries to maintain the tenuous hold on the one person she has left so attending Thanksgiving dinner is a chore rather a visit buy maybe with the sexy hockey player that she has been crushing on by her side it will be bearable. She isn’t looking for love as her future is uncertain however what was supposed to be one date soon becomes a friendship and then friends with benefits, but will they realize what they have both they break both their hearts?
Weston and Abbi were so much fun together as despite their very hectic lives as they not only find time for each other but support each other with all the other things they have going on in their lives. The narrators were a perfect choice for the characters as they brought out the sassy side of Abbi and the swoony side of Weston.
