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?
Blackmail Boyfriend is a cute and fluffy romantic read. Even though how cliched the concept may sound, it was so entertaining. Although I had some problems with the actions of protagonists in it, I’d really liked it. I love reading books published by Entangled crush cause they publish cute romantic reads with adorable characters and when I first read the blurb of this book I couldn’t help myself and got myself a copy.
Hayley Patterson is undateable girl in her high school due to her overprotective brothers who are physically strong and has don’t mess with us label on their faces. When Rumor spreads that Hayley hooked up with the golden boy Bryce Colton everyone thinks that it’s Hayley patterson but actually it was another girl named Hayley Hoffman who uses her name. When Haley Hoffman’s boyfriend Denny who looks like a wrestler confronts Bryce, Hayley saves him by pretending she was his girlfriend. To resolve both Haley and Bryce’s problem she proposes a deal where he has to be her fake boyfriend for a few weeks so everyone can think she’s a dateable girl and approachable too. Bryce reluctantly agrees to the deal because it’s either this or beaten to a pulp by Denny.
Haley is sassy, witty, fun girl who was easy to relate to. Though she may be likable character but she did annoyed me with her obsessiveness over Bryce when they are actually in a fake relationship. The thing that made me like her more is her love for animals, she rescues dogs and gives them shelter which is great thing to do. Being a animal lover I really enjoyed whenever Bryce and Hayley visited the shelter. Bryce is arrogant character in this who thinks money is everything and he is also kinda neat freak. It’s really great how Hayley makes him realize that money isn’t everything and there are also other things in the world that brings happiness. At start, Bryce may be a smug character but after meeting Haley he slowly becomes adorable especially with the dogs. Haley and Bryce have hate/love relationship. The thing that irritated me the most was Bryce denying his attraction towards Haley. Another thing that I don’t get it was Haley’s obsession with Bryce, he is her fake boyfriend but she pretty much feels like he is her real boyfriend. The chemistry between them wasn’t amazing as I thought it would be but it was good enough.
The plot may be predictable but it was really sweet with a mix of humor. I’m glad that It was written in both Hayley and Bryce’s POV. The writing style is perfect it was sassy and witty. Both Hayley and Bryce are well written characters for the plot and I also liked the supporting characters Jane and Nathan. Jane is a funny character who is sarcastic and snarky and I liked the friendship between her and Hayley.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this cute story. This book not only deals with romantic relationships but also family relationships too. The plot is fast paced and there are some twists at the end that was unpredictable. Finally, I can say it was worth a read and I highly recommend this book to everyone who likes to read contemporary romance with cute plots.
