Sometimes, blackmail is the only weapon a girl has…

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?

My Opinion

Blackmail Boyfriend starts out with a case of mistaken identity. Bryce gets with a girl at the bonfire, a Haley who gives him the wrong last name. She does this incase her on again off again boyfriend finds out. He is cage fighter so him finding out will lead to Bryce getting seriously hurt. When Haley finds out on Monday morning, by everyone pointing at her and talking about her, she confronts Bryce. Bryce agrees to pose as her boyfriend until the rumors die out and she doesn’t appear easy. Bryce agrees to this but isn’t too happy about it.

Haley has the three s’s- strength, smarts and sassy. Haley is an honor roll student with very loving family. She is very secure with her place in the world, there is no woe is me from her. She discovers the rumor and instead of crying confronts the guy. She is smart and has an easy going personality. Not your typical angst teenager.

Bryce has everything going for him- family is rich, daddy well known, a member of the country club. He is a player and he plays the game well. He can and usually does have any gal he wants. He agrees to Haley’s plan cause he knows he is at fault with destroying her reputation and wants to do right. While he has everything he could possibly want, he is missing warmth in his life. His momma is the only shining spot in his family, but even she is ruled by high society.

Blackmail Boyfriend brings all the feels- laughter, tears, love and heartache. Haley and Bryce shouldn’t be together, mistaken identity brings them together. Logic keeps them together, and then something happens. Something more but can Bryce hold on to it or will he let it slip between his fingers.

My Rating 5 out of 5 stars

  1. Oh yay! I'm reading this very soon. I like the sound of Haley and the whole "posing" as her boyfriend is a favorite trope.

  2. This sounds like such a great read! I love when a story brings all of the feels! Haley's character sounds like one that I would love, and I enjoy when a good girl can make a bad boy change his ways! Great Review!
