Publisher's Summary

Fake boyfriends are hard work. When 16-year-old Bella’s dream boy asks her to be his fake girlfriend, Bella does the unthinkable. She says yes. The rules are simple. Two weeks, no kissing, and a few big lies. But things turn complicated when Bella begins to develop feelings for her fake boyfriend's brother. 

Can Bella get out of her fake relationship and into a real one without exposing her lies or destroying her friendships? The Boyfriend Agreement is funny, emotional, and wonderfully romantic. It’s a tale of one girl's journey to help her friends and find love, all without losing herself.

Wanted to like it more than I did

At the beginning of the book, I kept thinking how does this girl not realize that the boy likes her? It’s very obvious. But I was fine with overlooking that. In the middle it got really good. I was hooked, I was excited to see where it was going to go, and I liked the couple who we were rooting for. But with two hours left to go in the audiobook, I wanted to strangle her. I significantly speeded up the narration and was shaking my fist and yelling at thin air while preparing lunch. It was so clearly obvious what she needed to do for a long time and she kept acting as if she had no choice, which she did. It was really annoying. The end was sweet, and I enjoyed it. But I was too annoyed at that point to fully enjoy it. If helplessness doesn’t bother you, then go for this book because I really did enjoy the rest. But if you are someone like me who starts yelling “grow a spine”, this may not be the best book for you.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Well...

Okay so... the narrator was great. BUT the story itself was... predictable. Predictable and obvious. Realistically there is no way she wouldn’t have known he liked her.

I would like to listen to more from this narrator, but I am not so sure I enjoyed the story itself.


I was given this audiobook for free and am voluntarily leaving this review.

All about target audience!

Performance:
Lindsey Dorcus was amazing in her narration of this novel. She even sang a few lines which I have never heard in a book before!

Story:
This is where I wish I was 10 years old and still dreaming of fairy tales. Bella was just so naive, and I honestly couldn’t believe she was second in her school. I wanted to pull her out of the book and talk some sense into her. The writing was good but even as someone who reads/listens to YA was still out of my zone. That being said, I think this book would be lovely for anyone in the age rage 10-15.

Overall:
Lindsey did a killer job and aside from the story line I enjoyed Sevens writing style. A solid 3 out of 5 stars for me.

Narration good! Story OK!

Narrator was good and made Bella sound how I expected her to sound. However, the story was only okay! Every thing that happened I was able to predict from the moment it happened. I was not surprised even one time. I kept asking several times how she could be so naive. I did love Cole though! His character was the best part of the story! The book ending was good and lead into the next book. However, I personally will not be finishing the rest of the series.

Easy read & enjoyable

Bella was not a popular girl at high school, she kind of blended in, she had a crush on the popular boy Jake so when he asks her to be his fake girlfriend to basically make his ex jealous Bella’s high school life changes, she starts being popular, she thinks this will be fantastic, but it really isn’t especially when she starts falling for his brother Cole and the fake relationship starts to lose its shine. When listening to this I could not help but get a Disney vibe to it, the main character was called Bella, and her friends were called Ariel and Jasmine. Overall it was a good easy book but quite predictable. But I would read or listen to the rest of the series. Lindsey Dorcus did a great performance narrating this. I’ll definitely be looking out for more audios narrated by her.
