    1.5I plan to stay away from all YA contemporary romances unless it s written by Kasie West or Kody Keplinger I honestly think they are the only two authors in capacity to write dislikable characters that are still able to make you feel something other than hatred or annoyance But let s start from the beginning Great premise, sucky as heck execution. I like to think I ve read my share of fake relationships, it being a trope I will never tire of So when it comes to reading them I expect them to go a certain way cause you know what they say, if it ain t broke, don t fix it These books tend to have a structure that, as previously proven has always worked dilemma occurs and for some ridiculous reason they need to enter said fake relationship, they re not quite happy about it but they suck it up, some dilemma happens that leads them to being friends Then temptation occurs and they start to give in without forgetting they are in a FAKE RELATIONSHIP, and finally some dilemma occurs, they confess their undying love and live happily ever after Now here s the question Did you see that specific point where I clearly emphasized a tad Apparently Haley was a bit dense on getting that memo From the get go and by get go I mean day one she is acting like an entitled psycho jealous girlfriend, like dictator, that demands to be the center of attention You see, that was my mayor problem At times I really liked Haley because she was sarcastically funny, smart and stood her own which definitely won brownie points with me but at the same time she was annoying as heck I get that she needed Bryce to act like a boyfriend in public but she would constantly go mental when he didn t do it in private and again from the start.I mean look at this I sniffled Crap I fanned my eyes I would not cry He didn t kiss me good night And that s just the first and only fake date from their arrangement which he was basically forced to do He was constantly backed into a corner by Haley, Jane and Nathan and it just felt wrong And highly pathetic, I might add Nope, not done complaining about her.She was constantly complaining her brothers where the reason for her absent social life, but seriously, that girls needs to sit the heck down and reevaluate her life and her attitude She freaking scares everyone away with that crazy I mean I m one of the people who think who can t just show your crazy from day one You got to tone that shit down Bring it out gradually so people won t notice She was also needy as can be She was constantly prying for Bryce s complete and I mean complete attention and the second he got distracted or had to do something, again, she would go mental Acting like someone shit on her cake when he failed to meet all her ridiculous expectations.Did I also mention she was ridiculously jealous I mean, this is the kind of girl that lets you have no friends unless they have a weiner hanging between them legs She was constantly I ve used that word quite a few times here right making a big deal out of him talking or even looking other girls That shit just got creepy fast As for everything else Just no The ending was weak, the added family drama held no importance to the plot, the brothers were as flat as a cardboard, the friends were only used to inform the reader of the MC s feelings, in case you re too oblivious to grasp the blatantly obvious, Bryce was about as fun as cleaning a sewer, and the ex girlfriend drama was just too much But the great news is I finished the book Small mercies _

    The only Entangled Crush title that didn t work for me and I m devastated Seriously, I am Blackmail Boyfriend just don t come out as genuine to me Especially the love interest I find his thoughts and actions annoying and not believable He was not a fan of our main character at first and then suddenly he s love stricken I don t buy it The progression towards their HEA was not something that seems real to me so in result of that, it didn t make me swoon.The heroine was infuriating and that s all I can say about her If there was a character development , I didn t see it A big SIGH and NOPE.

    So honestly I expect this to be a cute fluffy, was hoping this was well written and I would have been happy But I kinda got I never read anything by Cannon before So I was pleased to discover I enjoyed her writing style It s witty, sassy and fresh.The plot was sweet, fun and while I expected mega predictable it actually did throw me on several occasions I mean this is a cute fluffy you can guess the outcome. so basically the main plot line had no huge surprises But Cannon took what could have been a run of the mill kinda story albeit it would have been sweet and cute and added her own brand to it Essentially this is a mash up getting thrown together by accident and girl and boy from totally different sides of town kinda love story To be frank I would have been probably happy with just that Since it was written very well But Cannon layered into this several other factors, which made this an unexpected good read.Essentially though Cannon shines in the character building of the two MCs Hayley and Bryce are both than they seems And their POV were both written exceptionally well I love all their little angst fest The best part about it is that probably 99% of the female population could relate to her behaviour, her worries and fears I think she is a very good example for how many of us gals behave and feel at that age I am talking when it comes to boys and our insecurities I wasn t an animal rescue kinda gal then again I had my own quirks and obsessions hence I can relate Nathan and Jane were an incredible support cast And I honestly feel like I know those four kids Each unique and each from a different family Cannon did a great job portraying the different family dynamics and the way all of them deal with it I found however some of the adults a bit to cliche and too stark Brittany in compare to all the different characters was too over the top in my opinion Then there is the country club scene and I honestly found myself a bit irritated I felt somehow Cannon might ruin the last bit of the book I begrudgingly found myself smile at Bryce s grand gesture But then Cannon won my heart completely with the last paragraph That last paragraph also encompasses everything I loved about Blackmail Boyfriend in just a few phrases A must read that is surprising, cute, fun and full of wonderful details and moments.

    Fafa s Book Corner Wordpress Fafa s Book Corner Blogger DNFWhen I first heard of this book I thought Why not give it a go It sounded interesting and I downloaded the sample from iBooks before deciding to purchase this Man am I glad that I did.The book begins with Haley s best friend asking her whether the rumors were true Confused Haley asks what rumors her friend is talking about and she explains that Bryce is claiming that he hooked up with her Haley says that this is not true.Before Haley s brothers find out the two decide to go and confront Bryce Bryce says that he has never seen her before When Haley gives a description of the other Haley in their school he says that he hooked up with the other Haley The other Haley runs into them explaining that she and her boyfriend have made up and he gave her a promise ring She then says that for some reason people are claiming that she hooked up with Bryce and she doesn t understand why as she has a boyfriend.Haley s brothers come and she explains that is didn t hook up with Bryce but is dating him Her brothers are okay with that and they go to class Bryce makes it clear that he doesn t date Haley then explains that it was he sheer stupidity that landed her in his mess in the first place and that he owes her She continues to explain that she wants to prove that she can date guys without the school worrying about her brothers.After this conversation Bryce tries staging a break up during lunch Haley reminds him again that he is the reason her reputation is ruined and that if he breaks up with her then she ll tell the other Haley s boyfriend He agrees but only because he fears her actually telling the boyfriend and him getting pummeled I found this to be a very dumb plot with pretty shallow characters Why would anyone go around and spread a rumor that he hooked up with so and so Why would some girl need to prove her brothers and the boys in her school that she is date able Haley seemed really dumb along with her friend Jane Oh and lets not forget Bryce Thus I saw no point in purchasing this because I found it to be incredibly stupid Overall this was not a good read I cannot bring myself to recommend it to anyone.

    I ve been reading a lot of clich novels but I think this one takes the cake Not only was the protagonist incredibly desperate she also let the guy walk all over her It was nicely hidden behind her stomping out and her bossiness but still felt a bit like the first relationship you get into and don t really know how you should be treated.

    Love is a wonderful thing, my dear, but it leaves you wide open for blackmail Jasper Fforde, an English authorChris Cannon, an American author, pens her new book, Blackmail Boyfriend, which is a cute high school love story between a rich guy and a middle class girl, who blackmails the guy to be her fake boyfriend till a certain rumor dies down, but for that the guy needs to face the girl s three elder dominating brothers, and little bit into the mess and fake boyfriend girlfriend drama, both started to get real feelings for one another.Synopsis Sometimes, blackmail is the only weapon a girl has Haley Patterson has had a crush on golden boy Bryce Colton for ages But when she hears a rumor that he hooked up with her she gives him a choice be her boyfriend for a month to show other guys that she s dateable despite her overprotective and very intimidating brothers or deal with the angry, cage fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did hook up with.Bryce didn t know the other Haley even had a boyfriend He was just trying to get his ex off his back And now, not only is he being blackmailed, he s being blackmailed by an honor student His new girlfriend has two three legged dogs, her father mows grass at the country club, and she s well, difficult And different.Can something so fake turn into something real Haley lives in the part of town which is not that sophisticated and also she has to work hard to keep up with the family Bryce is the guy who belongs from the richer part of the town and also with a wealthy family These two meets at crossroads when one weekend, Bryce hooks up with a girl, who doesn t share her first name because of the fear of her scary and macho boyfriend, so that girl uses Haley s name to protect her identity Come Monday, Haley realizes that there s a rumor that she hooked up with Bryce over the weekend Taking advantage of the situation, Haley blackmails Bryce to pretend that he is her boyfriend for a week to make herself look date able in the eyes of the other guys in school and also to get away from the shadows of her over protecting brothers Can they ignore the real feelings that started to crept up between them The writing style is fine with a catchy narrative style and the author has perfectly captured the voice of a teenage high schooler who is going through lots of drama in both school and home The prose is articulate with a fast pace.The characters, especially Haley and Bryce, are drawn with lots of realism by layering them with flaws as well as insecurities Haley is strong and smart girl yet suffered from her own insecurities, whereas on the other hand, Bryce too started off as a bit of a jerk, but finally got scared about his true feelings for Haley The supporting cast is also nicely developed, which lightened off the whole plot with their witty demeanor.The chemistry is cute and sweet, and their love story is like any other first time teenage couple, going on and off constantly Although the climax was very predictable, yet it was such an entertaining read that kept me engaged pretty much the entire time.Verdict If you fancy reading cheesy contemporary YA stories, the go for it, otherwise, skip it Courtesy I received an ARC from the YA Bound Book Blog Tours

    This was a pretty good YA romance, though I don t quite buy Bryce as a romantic lead Hayley is awesome And Jane and Nathan were a hoot Indeed, I m really glad Cannon included Nathan as a contrast to Bryce because it evened out what could easily have been a classist mono message.I liked Hayley from the start I liked her assertiveness and worried for the vulnerability she did a mostly good job covering I liked that she didn t waffle or manipulate well, okay, there s the blackmail, but that s of an extortion and she s very up front about it She isn t nearly as good at hiding her emotional state as she thinks she is and that ends up twisting Bryce into knots, but it isn t deliberate and it s of an indication that he isn t a complete snotrag and can be touched by her emotional distress so that worked out.Bryce, on the other hand, is emotionally stunted and Cannon does a pretty good job of showing why that is and how he tries to cope So I found myself sympathizing with his dilemma Sometimes I have a harder time sympathizing with his difficulty following through, though, and that dragged this story down And it makes it hard for me to buy that their HEA can be of the lasting variety Which, hey, High School and all, so that s generally okay, but I typically want resolution that feels solid than this managed.There was a lot of laugh out loud in the story and as I said, Jane and Nathan were a second hand delight And that offsets my difficulties with Bryce at least somewhat So I m going with 4 stars, but I m not going to round up on the justification that the final gesture felt off and I m not sure if I buy the resolution.A note about Chaste Hayley hasn t had a boyfriend and her relationship with Bryce is mostly fa ade through much of the story so we only ever get some kissing And only a handful of that So this is pretty chaste though with talk of teen sex present enough it may be uncomfortable for stricter tastes.

    I am always on the look out for fake relationship books and when I saw this I thought it would be another cute story It was not.Hayley was one of the most unlikable characters I ve ever read She was super immature, bratty, delusional, and kind of a psycho The way she treated Bryce, her blackmailed fake boyfriend, was crazy And I think if roles would have been reversed and he treated her that way everyone would consider him a creepy, possessive, abusive stalker There s a lot ranting I could do about this book, but I really don t want to waste any time on it.
