The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon
If you love Jasmine Guillory, Abby Jimenez and Talia Hibbert, you’ll LOVE Farrah Rochon!
What happens when three women discover , thanks to the live tweeting of a disastrous date, that they’ve all been duped by the same man? They become friends of course!
Samiah Brooks never thought she would be ‘that’ girl. But a live tweet of a horrific date just revealed the painful truth: she’s been catfished by a three-timing jerk of a boyfriend. Suddenly Samiah – along with his two other ‘girlfriends’, London and Taylor – have gone viral online. Now the three new besties are making a pact to spend the next six months investing in themselves. No men, no dating, and no worrying about their relationship status…
For once Samiah is putting herself first, and that includes finally developing the app she’s always dreamed of creating. Which is the exact moment she meets the deliciously sexy, honey-eyed Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? When it comes to love, there’s no such thing as a coincidence. But is Daniel really boyfriend material or is he maybe just a little too good to be true?

I know this is about the romance, but I have to say that I loved the friendship more.
Samiah works in her dream tech job, has a great condo, and the car she loves. But she doesn’t do well with dating. When she sees on Twitter that someone is posting about a bad date, she realizes that it’s the guy she was supposed to go out with that night. She knew they were at the restaurant she made reservations for, so she showed up there. Another woman did, too. The three made sure the guy knew what he thought about them. Then they all went out after. Samiah didn’t think she’d see the girls again, but she, London, and Taylor hit it off. And she needed friends. The three set up a weekly date. When they talked about what they wanted to do with their lives to make them happy, they all decided not to date for six months. That way they could focus on everything else first. This was tough when Samiah met the new guy at work, Daniel.
Daniel in undercover at the company that Samiah works for. He’s there to find out who is money laundering. He’s to get in and out quickly with the hopes he gets a big job in Las Vegas. Daniel finds himself torn for the first time. He and Samiah had an instant connection. He also likes the job. But he knows that his government job is more important. He struggles with is feelings and gives in to date Samiah. He didn’t expect to fall for her knowing that he was lying about his job and roommate.
I enjoyed the romance in this. There isn’t a ton of sex, so it’s a good romance for readers that don’t want that. There is a little, but it’s not as descriptive as some of the books I’ve read. I see that there are two other books in this series based off Taylor and London. I will definitely read them when I have the chance. I especially loved Taylor, so I’m looking forward to her book.
I gave this book 4 stars.
