Operation Boyfriend by Molly Zenk is a new adult romance story with a little drama, some angst, emotion, hidden agendas, revelations, danger, revenge, friendship, humour, surprising developments, and a love triangle. I initially thought the story was going to be a little predictable, but Ms. Zenk added a twist that definitely gave some excitement to the story. This is also my first read by Ms. Zenk.
Glynnis hasn’t had much luck when it came to her love life. Her long-term boyfriend leaves her- for another GUY! And when she finally decides to get back out there, she has one disastrous date after another. We follow along as Glynnis traverses college life, social media, and dating. She meets Corin, and then Daniel is added to the mix. One is quirky, goofy, and awkward- while the other is suave, confident, and successful. Glynnis has a dilemma, head vs heart. What will she decide? But not everything is as it appears…
The story contains some humour and emotion which help to give the story balance. But there was also a lot of texting/social media posts/and blogging scenes- but I’m not sure that there needed to be quite so much of it as I felt that it interrupted the flow of the story at times.
If you like angst, new adult romance, realistic and believable young adult characters, and a twist to your storyline- then this is the story for you!
Thank you, Ms. Zenk!

5 out of 5 stars
The story Operation Boyfriend by Molly Zenk is a new adult/romance book. It is a story that drew me in from the beginning and I found myself not able to put it down until I had finished the last page. I loved reading about the main female character and Corin. She is a young woman who has not been lucky with relationships. Even though he is the opposite from what she should want she finds herself drawn to him. There is an attraction and spark between them. Corin is a young man who doesn’t have a lot of experience in relationships. He finds himself pulled towards a young woman. What does the future hold for both Corin and the main female character? There is also Daniel that comes into the picture. He seems to be the one that everyone believes she should be with. Will she choose the one with her head or her heart? Read this book to find out. I grew to care about the main female character and Corin with each chapter that I read. I was rooting for them to find happiness. The other characters that are introduced in the story are interesting and intriguing. They all have their own part to play in the story. I enjoyed reading about the bantering that goes back and forth between the characters which at times had me with a smile on my face or laughing out loud. This is a book that was enjoyable to read and one that I would recommend.

Rated 5 stars
Wow! What to say! This ran me through a gambit of emotions. I went from love to hate on so many of the characters it was crazy. Glynnis is so insecure about herself and all of her decisions. I’m not gonna lie...at time it was annoying. Just once get a backbone girl! This starts off wonderfully and goes on from there. A little tedious at time but Corin more than made up for it. I really can’t say enough good things about him. He is so sweet, nervous and unassuming. Not your typical book boyfriend. No Alpha at all. But dang he has all the adoration for her that would be required. I love how he calls her his “dream girl”. He was definitely my fav character.
One of my favorite scenes is when he talked to her on the phone for the first time. He is so nervous and unsure. It’s weird to read about a guy who isn’t completely confident. Maybe all guys aren’t but they sure act like it. Corin doesn’t. Don’t get me wrong..I love it and it makes him all the more endearing to me.
Her BFF and her parents are different. At times they are more than a bit weird and irritating. The ending seemed a bit abrupt. I guess I wanted a bit of groveling or something to make the relationship seem like it was now going in the right direction.
Stupidity should never be a redeeming quality. Blindly following what other people want with no regards to your needs crazy. I don’t know how Glynnis survived the way she did. Who trusts someone that they hardly know as much as she did. I’m truly upset that the lead character was so awful. Is that how some people truly are? I rated it four stars because the author wrote an interesting story. The moments where we find out about the axe murderer and Corin are my favorite parts. I really liked Corin. He wasn’t traditionally handsome or build with muscle. He is a normal guy if a little stalker-ish. I actually liked how he wrote everything down. I makes you feel better and it almost takes a weight off of you. He was super adorable for being shy like there are no shy guys anymore. I thought he was very alpha male when he went after Glynnis. I liked the story but could do without Glynnis. The story was really well written and I would read more by this author. Hopefully all the leads have actual personalities that they developed from learning about themselves and not what others think their personality should be. Also we need to redefine the term best friend. Because Kenley was not it.
I always enjoy this type of story as it is exactly what I like from reading in general. It allowed me to switch my brain off for a few hours and to just sink into a story that is interesting. I found the characters to be really relatable, it was so easy to imagine yourself in their situation.
The story flows well on this book. It has a great pace about it and the writing is strong and consistent. I very much enjoyed this book and will be sure to check out more from this author in the future.
