“My tongue felt two sizes too big for my mouth. Now was the time when I should come clean, tell them what she could dig up and how stupid I was for lying. That way she’d have nothing on me.”
I don’t read a lot of contemporary books, but every now and then it’s nice to pick up something a little on the light side. Kasie West’s The Fill-In Boyfriend was exactly that. Cover is linked to Goodreads. Oh, yes, and a very Merry Christmas to those celebrating!
From my review:
“Gia has just been dumped in the parking lot right outside her prom. To make matters worse, her friends have never believed her boyfriend Bradley ever existed. Desperate to prove to them she hasn’t been lying, Gia enlists the help of a stranger to play the part of her fill-in boyfriend. When the night ends, Gia is sure she’s gotten away with a little white lie, but when the fake Bradley’s sister insists she return the favor to her brother, Gia’s life gets a little more complicated, especially when she begins to develop feelings for him. Gia’s web of lies starts to unravel with the return of her ex and when the girl who’s always been out to get her becomes convinced Gia is hiding something.” Read my full review here.
