Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Santana Jackson is from the `hood and her boyfriend, Pharaoh, is a hustler. Dynasty Young has a hard life and what she wants most is to earn her way out of the projects. Patience Blackman is the daughter of the famous Bishop Blackman. She wants to escape her sheltered life and have some fun for a change.

When I found out about this book and read the synopsis I immediately pre-ordered a copy, because I wanted to know Patience Blackman's story. She was not ready for the choices she made and the position her friend, Silky, put her in. (I don't know what in the world Silky was thinking) Patience was naïve when it came to dealing with certain people and knew nothing about the ways of the world. In fact, if it didn't have to do with church she was pretty much clueless. All I kept thinking was `Trill is not the one' and `I know she wants to experience life, but this is not the way'. I felt bad for her for a while there. I didn't feel bad for her when she was punished, though. Her dad may have been too strict most days, but she deserved that. However, God can work things together for good. If Patience hadn't been `sentenced to hard time' things would have probably turned out a lot differently for her.

Santana was a tough girl who could take care of herself and I liked her spunk. She wasn't too wise when it came to choosing a boyfriend, though, or when it came to choosing her friends. She needed to stop following after Meka and stay far away from her so-called best friend. She had a mother who needed to get her priorities straight. I thought I wasn't going to like Craig, her mother's man, but he turned out to be the kind of father figure Santana needed. It took her a long time to realize how good she had it.

Boyfriend Season introduces three teenage girls from Atlanta and the challenges that they each face. Santana Jackson is in love with her hustling boyfriend, Pharoah, and her part time gig is boosting clothes to keep money in her pocket. Dynasty Young lives in Thomasville Heights with her bi-polar Aunt Maybelline and is terrorized daily by Rufus, her obnoxious all knowing neighbor. Patience Blackman is the daughter of the famous Bishop Blackman and she's expected to be the perfect preacher's child.

Ms. London creates a barrage of events depicting the choices these teens face and the consequences to their actions and reactions. Will the gleam of the forbidden continue to sway them, or will a larger sense intervene before it's too late? Dynasty's life of hard knocks seem to worsen. Will she be able to escape the despair that awaits her amid the taunts and shame? Will the life of truth and dare encompass Santana. or will she find safety elsewhere? Tired of being restrained by her strict and religious parents, will the lure of the forbidden bring more harm than good for lil Ms. Patience? Right or wrong, friend or foe, good or bad, true or false...these questions plagues these three teenagers as they journey through this Boyfriend Season. Boyfriend Season by Kelli London was just a decent read for me. It had a decent flow, a decent plot, and decent characters, but nothing extra to brag about.

This is your classic girls choosing the wrong guy and eventually finding Mr. Right story that we have all seen done before. We have three girls-Dynasty, Santana and Patience-that fit the classic girl with drama issues.

Santana Jackson has a "Hustler" boyfriend and a gold digging mother looking for a man with big money. Her life gets turned around when she discovers her mother found a good "rich" man and moves the family to another part of the city. Then she meets the college boy from the hood but doesn't act like it and learns about giving guys a chance.

Dynasty Young has a crazy aunt and falls for Mr. Too Good To Be True. She learns that he is too good to be true and discovers Mr. Right in the most unlikely source.

Patience Blackman the Preacher's daughter that falls for a rapper (whose family reminds me of TI).

The book hints that Santana's mother plays a big role in her story, in reality she is barely seen. The boyfriend plays a bigger role in her story.

I think the main issue I have with the book is that almost all the boys fit the stereotypical images that we always see. Except one that wins one of the girls in the end. He was not the standard Prince Charming and it was nice to see him win one for the underdogs.

Otherwise than that the book was a good read and it would be interesting to see a sequel.

The chapters are split up by the name of one of the three girls in a consistent order, like 1 2 3, 1 2 3, so no girl is a more important character than the other. Each girl offers a story we can learn from and relate to. I mostly relate to Patience, the pastor's daughter. Sometimes us closeted good girls want a bad boy for the excitement. But, I like how unlike many other authors, Patience isn't naive and forgiving of Trill's cheating and she wisely moves onto a more mature guy. Dynasty's story is kind of weird. I know New Yorkers are go getters, but her crush is doing a little too much so early in life for me to find it believable. However, I'm sure girls can relate to her being an unwanted, poor child that's insecure because of her home. Shanique (I think her name is), she was a complete hoodrat and her ending isn't believable. She stops stealing because now her stepdad gives her money? Yeah right, she stole for the thrill, excitement, and entitlement.
