If “I love you” is a lie, why does it feel so much like the truth?
Stuck at a co-workers retirement party, Max prepares himself for a long, boring night—until a guy across the bar with an intense brown gaze and a dangerous smirk offers some mutual gratification in the bathroom. Max had been looking for a forever love, but Karson’s so hot, forever can wait.
Ever since his cheating ex broke his heart, Karson’s had rules. Only pleasure. Never more than once. Never stay the night. Yet long after their romp in the bar bathroom, Karson still wants Max—maybe enough to break his own rules.
As Max and Karson struggle to sort out their complicated non-relationship, Karson’s ex resurfaces in full win-him-back mode. One white lie later, Max attends Karson’s tenth annual high-school reunion as his “boyfriend” to keep his ex away. But pretending is hard, when all Max wants is for the lie to be the truth.
Warning: Contains a slew of misunderstandings, one cheating, jealous ex, and steamy sex scenes between two guys who fall accidentally in love.
Erin: Well, from the blurb I should have known this book wouldn’t be for me. Misunderstandings and miscommunication in books with adults is my BIGGEST pet peeve in a book! They are ridiculous and contrived drama and angst that are for shock value only simply annoy me and will make me flounce a book quicker than anything. Such is the case with Monica Anderson’s Not My Boyfriend.
I did enjoy a few things in the book. Max’s best friend Lydia was awesome. The sex scenes are hot. After that, there isn’t much to like. Which is disappointing. I was hoping I’d found a new author to enjoy.
