Review: Blackmail Boyfriend by Chris Cannon


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 faketurn into something real?

My Review: 
I received Blackmail Boyfriend by Chris Cannon from the publisher for review, and this is my honest opinion.

Blackmail Boyfriend is about a girl named Haley who is having trouble getting a boyfriend when her brothers make it their business to personally scare every guy away from her. When a rumor starts spreading around the school that she slept with the high school hottie she has to do something to kill the rumor fast.

The hottie of the school is referred to as Bryce, and Haley makes a “deal” with him to clear her name and keep her reputation clean. She basically tells him that since it is his fault the rumor is going around that he has to pretend to be her boyfriend for a couple weeks to kill the rumor and make her seem dateable to other guys.

This book was incredibly interesting. I have read tons of sappy romance, love at first sight kind of books but this was the complete opposite. It was entertaining to watch Bryce struggle with his feelings for Haley that whether he wanted or not were creeping up on him. It was also sweet to see Haley’s best friend Jane to get together with Bryce’s best friend Nathan. I was not sure how that was going to pan out in the beginning but what did happen was on a happy note.

There was no one emotion in this book, it was very much an emotional rollercoaster for Haley and Bryce. But hey, that is what makes a relationship and that is also what made them seem very real to me. I flew through this story a lot faster than I thought I would and that is simply because the plot, and the characters pulled me in and did not let me go until the last sentence had ended. I am very excited to read others books by this author in the near future!
