REVIEW ~ THE BOY FRIEND by Mika Jolie



According to the law of attraction, women and men can't be friends.
Contrary to this myth, my friendship with Coriander Phillips does not rest on unrequited love or un-actualized lust. We've been inseparable since the day I pulled one of her pigtails and she punched me in the gut.
She's hilarious, fun to hang out with. Together, we're like peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and meatballs, wings and beer. A match made in heaven.
She's the bomb.
Did I mention she's smokin' hot? I've checked her out…maybe once or twice. Hey, I'm a guy.
Seriously, no awkwardness, no secret yearning for our relationship to escalate beyond the purely platonic. I'm the boy friend—the loyal shoulder she cries on, the dispenser of coffee, sympathy, hugs, advice, and affection with no expectations.
Until the invisible line between friends and lovers became blurry.
Now I want more. I want her.
All I have to do is convince her we can be more than friends.
Right?
If only it were that easy.

I loved this friends to lovers story. We all k now its dangerous territory but sometimes Love is worth the risk.
This story is told by Dean, the leading man. He don't sugar coat it and lays it all out there for us to read. 
The Boy Friend was a mix bag of emotions, one that had me hooked from the very first word, till the very last.

Dean is your typical lad, scared of commitment and likes playing the field. 
Cori is beautiful woman who hasn't had much success with men, but is looking for the real deal.

Best friend for 20 years and the lines have never been blurred. 

Cori's biological clock is ticking, she doesn't just want a baby daddy she wants love, commitment, a husband, a child, a future.
When she tells Dean of her plans he is rendered speechless. No one is good enough for her in his eyes. 
Together they embark on a journey of finding Cori her dreams.

One night everything changes, a kiss that leaves them both breathless and with more questions than answers.
Dean knows there is alot at stake, he could loose his best friend if he doesn't think with the right head.

Fantasies, Misunderstandings, Sex...Everyone knows this couple belong together, yet they are yet to get on the same page!

How can they remain friends with all the chemistry bubbling between them. They both want more but at what cost?
Can this couple stand the test?
Will they get their HEA?
