Remember Nathan Scott from Season 1 of One Tree Hill? Grant Evertide was basically Nathan Scott from the first two episodes—the one that flirted with all the girls, had some questionable choices, and dark hair and amazing eyes. I tried to figure out why I liked him so much from the beginning, even though he had the tendency to be a jerk, and that was why. I saw the redeemable side of him, so did Zoe Cain. Grant told half of the story, and being inside of his head, figuring out how he navigated through life, kept me entertained. There were moments when I wanted to strangle him, and there were moments that I wanted to hug him.
Zoe was unique and uber sarcastic. She also wanted to prove her brother, Jack, wrong no matter what it took. The book began with a bang in order for her to grate Jack’s nerves, and color me surprised when Grant got roped into her antics in the first couple of paragraphs. I loved her spunk and refusal to conform to the norm. She already stood out being a “hick,” one who transferred to the private school in town for junior and senior year, surrounded by those that had been there since freshmen year. She showed everyone that she was much more than that. Zoe liked to bake, and had a knack for it, she enjoyed killing zombies, and she didn’t shy away from threatening someone with one of the many shotguns in her arsenal. Yeah, she had spunk. Just try not to like her.
Zoe and Grant’s relationship started as a way to get on Jack’s nerves, but her relationship with her best friend, Delia, was pure. Delia had crazy hair and a larger-than-life personality. She and Zoe went together like peanut butter and jelly, different from each other but complimentary. I would love for her to have her own book, especially considering her budding romance with Aiden.
Grant and Zoe had a strange relationship. I didn’t doubt for a second that Grant was not using her, which made me pause when I thought about the title. The actual boyfriend bet proposed in the book was kind of thrown out there randomly, and I didn’t get how it played such a central role in the plot. Grant and Aiden kind of mentioned idea one day, but it was never the focus like I had anticipated. Nevertheless, I enjoyed how that tiny conversation sort of played as catalyst for Grant and Zoe’s connection. Though, to be honest, they had something undeniable. They were an unlikely pair like I’ve never seen before. Cannon touched the rich boy/peasant girl troupe but didn’t focus on it. I loved that! They had class distinctions, but the main issue was that Grant just couldn’t commit the way he (much to his chagrin) and Zoe wanted him to. Money played a role, as did appearance, but it didn’t drown everything else out.
Light, airy, and hilarious, The Boyfriend Bet pleased my romance-loving soul. The kisses were steamy, detention became a thing of romance, and the intricacies of baking kept things sweet. Even though this is the second in a series, you don’t have to start at book one. I have no idea what book one is even about and still enjoyed this one. Get your copy as soon as possible, because as I said multiple times while reading, this story is cah-uttte!
The things I like in the book was that i mostly like Zoe. She has guts, and she isn't afraid to say things. The secondary characters were lovely developed and they were interesting. The book has some pros and cons but which book doesn't ?
>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the first in the Boyfriend Chronicles and ends in an HEA. Zoe is a townie, transferring to the private high school her junior year along with her friend, Delia. Grant and Aiden have always gone to the private high school. There is a definite prejudice between the townies (farmers) and the richer kids. Zoe’s brother, Jack warns Zoe away from Grant, so of course she sets out to attract him. They end up sharing a class and learning to really like one another.
>This book has all of the usual high school angst, but the characters really shine. Once again the secondary female characters, like Lena, are portrayed as no brained whores. Grant took a while for me to warm up to him. He kept using whatever the girls would offer him, without regret and didn’t see what Zoe had to offer, right in front of him.
>There was a bit of humor in the fact that every kiss Grant and Zoe shared at school was punished with a detention. Aiden’s analytic personality was also a source of humor. This book is appropriate for a young adult (16+) to adult audience. Nothing was explicitly described, just implied or mentioned. I am giving this book 4 stars.
