Audiobook Review: Book Boyfriend (Book Boyfriends, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Book Boyfriend by Claire Kingsley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

He’s too hot for words. 


Alex Lawson might as well be the hottest book boyfriend imaginable. A fun, romantic, possessive, panty-melting man. And the best part? 

He’s real. 

For a girl like me—a slightly awkward book addict—Alex is a dream come true, straight off the pages of my favorite romance novels. But our story is turning into a whirlwind romance—the kind that only exists in books. 

And I wonder if we’re heading toward our own happily ever after, or if he’s too good to be true.


Here’s the thing. I’m not a bad guy. Lying to Mia wasn’t part of the plan. Finding success as a romance author using a female pen name wasn’t part of the plan either. But sometimes life takes unexpected turns. Like realizing the woman you’re falling for is your alter-ego’s online best friend. 
Online, she thinks I’m a woman named Lexi. In person, she knows I’m all man. I want to worship her body and claim every inch of her. 

But if she finds out the truth, I could lose everything.

The Hero: Alex (a.k.a. Lexi) – a former computer programmer who was writing a science fiction novel in his spare time. He always wanted to be a novelist. He hated his job, he was divorced and had developed a fear of commitment. When his sister Kendra talked him into writing books with a wider appeal which he could turn out fast, like romance novels. He couldn’t stop thinking about it and decided to do it. He was able to finish his first book in two weeks and publishes it under a female pseudonym.

The heroine: Mia – she is an introvert and a book addict. She is shy and awkward around others, so agrees to a blind date. I loved her from the start. She gets upset with her date for saying she is not a ‘serious’ reader because she reads romance. Like me, she reads about a book a day and is proud of it. She is a book blogger who is less inept and nervous online as ‘Bookworm Babe”.

The Story: Bookworm Babe and Lexi are online friends and they chat with each other all the time. As BB, Mia is able to tell Lexi about her life, like her failed blind date. She loves Lexi’s books and characters.

When Mia and Alex meet in a bookstore, a romance between them begins. Though it isn’t long before BB messages Lexie and tells her about a date she was just on and Alex realizes BB is Mia. He feels he can’t tell a blogger about his true identity without the possibility of negatively affecting his new career which is paying both his and his ill fathers bills including some hefty medical bills for his father.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Stephen Dexter and Maxine Mitchell. These are two of my favorite narrators, both of them have great voices and are terrific narrators. Stephen has a deep and sexy voice and Maxine has an intelligent sounding, yet feminine voice and both of them do great job.

This is a pretty standard contemporary romance where some big secrets keep compounding to make things worse between a couple. Where the reader is just waiting for everything to come out into the open and destroy everything (for a while at least). It was steamy and cute and I did like the storyline.
