My Thoughts

If there’s a story that speaks about the power strong female connections can bring to empower one’s self esteem, it’s The Boyfriend Project! I wish I had a very close female squad like Samiah, Taylor and London in my life. All three women supported each other throughout joys and struggles, beginning with the viral dating mishap that brought the trio together!

The Boyfriend Project follows Samiah Brooks as she bonds with two other women, Taylor and London. Their first encounter was established through Twitter, as each woman realized that they were seeing the same man. After kicking him to the curb, the trio agree to meet weekly and share their life goals, setting the stage for successful lives without dating. Samiah’s journey becomes complicated when a new employee, Daniel, comes into the scene. Harmless playful banter between the two characters become very affectionate, and Samiah wonders how she can maintain her pact with her kindred spirits while navigating through her feelings toward Daniel.

Along with steamy romance, The Boyfriend Project also covers the pressures of being Black and female in the workplace. Samiah constantly feels the pressure to succeed in everything she does, for even slipping for a moment can bring disaster. As Samiah confides to Daniel, “It’s as if I’m living under a microscope, as if I’m expected to fail at any moment…I’m carrying the weight of some many others on my shoulders.” Samiah is at the top of her game in a successful company, yet she’s very aware that it could change for her in an instant.

The Boyfriend Project features strong, independent women succeed in professions they love. Samiah is strong in the technology field, London is a top rated pediatrician, and Taylor is in the works of branching out her thriving personal trainer clientele. Which each woman faces occupational and personal challenges throughout the story, they turn to each other for support and friendship. They gather to vent during hardships and congratulate during success. I feel like this tight knit circle among women is something you rarely see in stories, and I’m here for it!

I had a wonderful time reading The Boyfriend Project! If you want a story filled with romance and strong female bonds, this is the book you should turn to!

Synopsis

USA Today bestselling author Farrah Rochon launches a new series about three young women who become friends when the live Tweeting of a disastrous date leads them to discover they’ve all been duped by the same man.

Samiah Brooks never thought she would be “that” girl. But a live tweet of a horrific date just revealed the painful truth: she’s been catfished by a three-timing jerk of a boyfriend. Suddenly Samiah-along with his two other “girlfriends,” London and Taylor-have gone viral online. Now the three new besties are making a pact to spend the next six months investing in themselves. No men, no dating, and no worrying about their relationship status . . .

For once Samiah is putting herself first, and that includes finally developing the app she’s always dreamed of creating. Which is the exact moment she meets the deliciously sexy, honey-eyed Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? When it comes to love, there’s no such thing as a coincidence. But is Daniel really boyfriend material or is he maybe just a little too good to be true?

I’m about halfway through Lobizona by Romina Garber. I’m just swept away by the reality of the Miami, Florida setting and the Argentinian folklore woven into the story. I’m sure it’s going to be quite a ride once things pick up!

I did discover one thing that I’m not too thrilled about…nothing story related, but the face that the publication date is pushed back to August. I should have expected it, considering the pandemic we’re all experiencing has caused delays and postponements all around. I was surprised about the news, but I can wait. It will just build up the excitement!
