Title: Book Boyfriend
Author: Claire Kingsley
Too often I've wondered what i would do if the perfect boyfriend showed up in front of me - of course, the kind that i usually only find in books, too good to be true and so very, unbelievably irresistible. I won't lie, i still believe that those kinds of men are only available in our minds and written down in the pages of the best books that i love. Of course, i was more than curious to find out how Claire Kingsley would make her own book boyfriend real and believable. And what an interesting journey it was, that's for sure. I've met authors who write in the opposite gender, and it's always been fascinating to see how they can be as realistic as possible; so it's no wonder that when Alex meets Mia as his alter ego, Lexi, they become fast friends. Mia loves books, would live in them if possible, something i can absolutely relate to. When she comes across Alex, their chemistry is instant, seemingly as though he's too good to be true. Only, Alex knows more about Mia than he leads on, his feelings so very true, but secrets are something that shouldn't be kept in case they come out...
It was an adorable story, the kind that really makes you wonder if it happens. How many times do you chat with someone online and truly hope that the person you're speaking to is who they really are. Of course, every so often, they are nothing like what we'd expect, being the complete opposite. While i did like this book, it was interesting and the kind of story that will make you think twice about who you speak to, there was so much i was hoping for. It's difficult admitting this simply because i had high hopes reading the blurb and getting into the story. There were some parts that were great and others when i had hoped for more - as much as Mia loved her books and her blog, there had to be more to her than simply that. As for Alex, i had hoped that he'd be more open on who he is and what he knew about Mia. Albeit this, i still enjoyed Book Boyfriend, and can only hope to read from Claire Kingsley in the future because just being able to read something that i've thought about more often than not has made me wildly curious about her.
