Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I think what drew me int this one is that it seemed modern and different from her others and I wanted to read something a little lighter and fun. I do think it was light and fun but the hero was so obnoxious sometimes that it was hard not to roll my eyes sometimes. He just didn't remind me of a grown man sometimes, and that whole stunt he pulled on vacation? All he had to do was uninvite the girl and this book would have had zero conflict. I truly disconnected to that part because it just seemed like such an immature thing to do especially when you didn't even know the woman's name. I wish there would have been a more challenging thing standing in their way or else I would have given it a 5.
The heroine was just kinda okay. I wasn't sure what he loved so much about her. I think if she had gotten her on narrative and I could have been in her head, I would have liked her better but I had such a hard time relating to her that I wasn't really routing for their HEA as much as I should have, but I did really dig the story as a whole. I love friends to lovers and i love reformed manw***res who find the one. If you do too, this book's for you!
Would you be willing to try another book from Mika Jolie? Why or why not?
Maybe, if it had a attention grabbing synopsis!
Was The Boy Friend worth the listening time?

Can a guy and a girl just be friends? That's the premise of this audiobook story. The main characters have been best friends since childhood, until she tells him about something she really wants- a baby. Starting to see his friend in a new light, the hero struggles with his changing feelings of being insanely attracted to the heroine. I enjoyed this story a lot and narration was well done with blended voices.

This is my first book by Mika Jolie and I loved it! Dean narrates de story and the way he “interacts” with the reader is very surprising and interesting. I love the comparisons Dean does and I’ve been laughing and expecting more at every turn. Great read, great story and great narration as well!
