When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend— two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party — three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

My Thoughts:

Fun, fun, fun, fun! That’s what I’m learning I love about Kasie West’s contemporary romance books. I read this one on the plane from Chicago to Dallas. It was the perfect read while traveling. Before I knew it, I was finishing the book and the plane was landing!

This book has some elements that I really love: prom, a strong sibling relationship, varied family dynamics, and an a-dork-able guy. The main character, Gia, made some choices that made me want to shake her… so yeah, she’s exactly like teen me! 🙂

Basically, The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West is the perfect summer read… fun and flirty with a dash a drama. I was sucked in form page one.
