Book Review - The Boyfriend List – Jeannie Moon

ABOUT THE BOOK

Jenna Albanese planned it all out at thirteen when she listed the qualities she wanted in her perfect man. Years later, she thought she’d found him. When all she got was a broken heart, Jenna tucked away the boyfriend list—and her belief in happy ever after.

Nate Bayard has a life most people only dream of—he’s a handsome high-caliber polo player and partner in a multibillion dollar business. But as intelligent and confident as he is on the field and in the boardroom, he’s hopeless with women—until he meets the sweet and funny Jenna. She’s just about perfect, and Nate’s determined to make her his. There’s just one little problem. Jenna’s unwelcome past is about to make a comeback.

For Jenna, overcoming her mistrust in men—particularly rich ones—isn’t going to be easy. Then she comes across that old boyfriend list and realizes that maybe it’s time for another look and a few changes to bring a brand new beat to her romantic heart.



REVIEW

The Boyfriend List is the first book I’ve read by this author, and I can safely say I am hooked!   Jenna and Nate are some of the best-written characters I’ve read in a while.  I especially enjoyed reading about Nate, who has a shy and nerdy outward appearance, but is still self-confident enough to go after what he wants.  The spark between these two characters is clear and the conflict doesn’t feel contrived.  This is a quick read and I recommend to anyone who loves contemporary romance.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
