** I received an advanced copy from NetGalley via Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.**
I turned into the Greenbrier High School parking lot with a singular mission: figure out a way to keep my brothers from chasing off every guy who seemed interested in me.
Prior to starting Blackmail Boyfriend I was in a huge reading slump. Everything contemporary wise I came across I was unable to connect with the characters and finish the book. So when I received my copy of Blackmail Boyfriend I was worried it was going to be yet another contemporary read I couldn’t get into. Luckily, that was not the case :D.
When I first came across Blackmail Boyfriend I knew it was one I would have to read, and am I ever glad I did! This was such a cute and entertaining read that it pulled me out of my reading slump! The writing style flows well throughout the novel, and I really enjoyed the dual POV we get from both Haley and Bryce. As much as I liked Bryce and Haley, I think the secondary characters Jane and Nathan were my absolutely favourites! However, at times I would find myself getting annoyed with both Haley and Bryce, Haley was a great influence on Bryce and was able to make him see that there is more to life than money. The character growth between Hayley and Bryce was well played out and as the story progressed I was able to love them both!
Chris Cannon picked a realistic approach when it came to her characters throughout this book. I enjoyed that each character’s personality, families, situations and how they handled things was something that readers could relate to and see in every day life. Overall, Blackmail Boyfriend was the perfect read to get my out of my horrible reading slump and I can’t wait to read Chris Cannon’s next book!
