    4 STARSYassssss This is what I am talking about It is about time that romance books featuring black characters are marketed the same way as romance books with white characters have been for years.There was not white savior or poor, ghetto black woman in sight What you are getting is a black man and woman being represented just how we are in real life No stereotypes inserted to be passed off as fact This is proper representation.What a breath of fresh fucking air I m so darn giddy about t 4 STARSYassssss This is what I am talking about It is about time that romance books featuring black characters are marketed the same way as romance books with white characters have been for years.There was not white savior or poor, ghetto black woman in sight What you are getting is a black man and woman being represented just how we are in real life No stereotypes inserted to be passed off as fact This is proper representation.What a breath of fresh fucking air I m so darn giddy about this story because it s a true representation of who Black people are Farrah Rochon nails it I think I may even have a slight girl crush on her now.The book starts off with a healthy amount of drama that sets up for the perfect storyline It follows the synopsis to the book which I can appreciate I hate when a synopsis is just a flat out lie to get me to read the book.Let s start with our beautiful and sexy leading lady, Samiah BTW I adore her name So cute Samiah is everything I want to be when I grow up She s is the total package Samiah has a great career, money, car, fancy condo, etc What she doesn t have is a partner to share it with, but not for a lack of trying The dating scene in Austin, TX apparently isn t that good, according to her I don t personally know, but that s what the book tells us.Now it s time to tell you about the sexy Daniel Collins He is a walking wet dream The man isthan just a face, he s also charming, thoughtful, intelligent, knows how to flirt his way right into your heart I am a fanSamiah was falling in love with the person she was when she was with himDaniel allowed Samiah the space to be herself She didn t have to pretend That s how a woman falls in love with not only a man but with herself There is nothingsexy than a woman was is unapologetically herself That s one of the many reasons I enjoyed reading their relationship develop.Click Below ToRead More Remember to follow all things messySubscribe Listen to my podcast

    The Boyfriend Project is a refreshing office romance that I enjoyed reading, but had some mixed feelings about.We follow Samiah Brooks, a badass black woman working for a major tech company She finds out that she was catfished by her boyfriend, who was simultaneously dating two other women She confronts him with the two other girls, Taylor and London, and team up to expose him They develop a friendship, and end up making a pact to concentrate on themselves for the next six months and not let The Boyfriend Project is a refreshing office romance that I enjoyed reading, but had some mixed feelings about.We follow Samiah Brooks, a badass black woman working for a major tech company She finds out that she was catfished by her boyfriend, who was simultaneously dating two other women She confronts him with the two other girls, Taylor and London, and team up to expose him They develop a friendship, and end up making a pact to concentrate on themselves for the next six months and not let any men hold them back The Boyfriend Project.But then a new employee is hired at Samiah s work Daniel Collins and now Samiah is conflicted between her pact and her growing feelings Not all is as it seems however, as Daniel is hiding his real identity He is a secret agent, trying to uncover the money laundering scheme hidden in the company before it is too late I loved so many aspects of this book The female friendships were done really well and I appreciated how they all came together instead of resenting each other I had heard a few people saying they thought there was too much focus on the work but I really enjoyed that element I don t know much about the tech industry or the secret spy industry for that matter so it was really interesting to find outabout it I loved the discussions about privilege and how much harder Samiah had to work to be respected because of her identity as a black woman I also liked the conversations about how Samiah feels she has to be perfect, lest she block opportunities for subsequent black women to be employed Women in STEM was a major issue that was addressed, and I am so grateful for it It was great to see a strong, sexy female character with ambitions of making her own app, not being afraid to be forward and knowing what she wants However, in that list of things that I enjoyed about the story, there is one that is glaringly absent The romance While I loved Samiah, and quite liked Daniel I never got fully invested in their romance I can t exactly pin point what it was, but I just couldn t feel the chemistry Their banter was pretty good, and they definitely had physical attraction but somehow I didn t believe in them In addition, the sex scenes were not my favourite I am not sure if it was how they were written or the fact that I listened to it on audio, but they made me cringe and want to skip over them The romance felt pretty underwhelming and boring in comparison to some of the other aspects of the story If this wasn t a romance book I could have gotten past that, but because it was such a major part it hindered my enjoyment I thought the writing was good, but I would have preferred it to be told in first person rather than third It may be a nit picky thing, but that doesn t usually bother me In this book however, it felt unnatural and was perhaps one of the things that stopped me from caring about the romance I got used to it in the end, but still think first person would have suited the story better.Overall, I really loved certain elements of the story but the romance is what ultimately brought this down for me I would recommend this if you are looking for a diverse, own voices read with well developed characters and discussions about privilege in the tech world Don t go into this however, for the romance alone .5 stars Thank you to Hachette Audio and Libro.fm for this ALCRelease Date 9 June 2020

    5 Stars I LOVED this book for so many reasons Everyone should go pick it up, right now Samiah is a woman in tech, so she already has to work harder when it comes to her career She also wants to find a partner She is seeing someone and thinks it may work, until she starts reading someone s disastrous date tweets and she realizes this is the man she s been seeing Her and 2 other women who have all been seeing him at once confront him at once and form an unlikely bond They make a boyfrien 5 Stars I LOVED this book for so many reasons Everyone should go pick it up, right now Samiah is a woman in tech, so she already has to work harder when it comes to her career She also wants to find a partner She is seeing someone and thinks it may work, until she starts reading someone s disastrous date tweets and she realizes this is the man she s been seeing Her and 2 other women who have all been seeing him at once confront him at once and form an unlikely bond They make a boyfriend pact and agree that all 3 of them will focus on what they want to do for the next 6 months and not worry about dating.Until Samiah meets Daniel, then it all changes As much as they may want to resist one another it is becoming too difficult As they work together on themselves and in work projects, a bond starts to form, however that doesn t come without secrets from both of them Can their relationship last once the truth spills out I ve been looking forward to reading this book for awhile and I m so glad I decided to pick it up now It was waythan I thought it would be in all the best ways I loved this book because Samiah is a woman in tech like me and therefore has to work harder at her job day in and day out to prove herself This book exhibits how women who are pinned to be unlikely friends can become your best confidants and most trustworthy friends It also shows the struggle of the BIPOC community and what Daniel Samiah have to go through in their daily lives The author does a great job of laying it out very clearly for the reader of the additional struggles I felt sad and upset for Samiah and Daniel and I think that made my reading experience that much better.I had never read a Farrah Rochon book before but this will definitely not be my last This will easily be one of my favorite books this year and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next one by Rochon This one is out now and I highly recommend you pick it up.Thank you for Forever publishing for my copy of this book

    This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2020, and boy do I wish I d loved it I really wanted to, but it ultimately was a let down on most fronts, and this hurts my soul to say The premise of The Boyfriend Project set it up to be a new favorite of mine, and through all my excitement and even when I started the book, never once did it cross my mind that this is a book I might dislike Three women who form a strong bond after being cheated on by the same asshole Friendship Office romanc This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2020, and boy do I wish I d loved it I really wanted to, but it ultimately was a let down on most fronts, and this hurts my soul to say The premise of The Boyfriend Project set it up to be a new favorite of mine, and through all my excitement and even when I started the book, never once did it cross my mind that this is a book I might dislike Three women who form a strong bond after being cheated on by the same asshole Friendship Office romance Literally none of that sounded to me like something could go wrong along the way, and although the book did deliver in some aspects, ultimately it failed when it mattered most for the genre the romantic relationship.So let s start with what the did right the female friendship I love how quick Samirah, London and Taylor took to each other Eventhough they all come from different backgrounds and have different hobbies and aspirations, they bonded over going viral and from then on formed a steady and reliable support system for each other, might it be in the matters of the heart, work or anything in between, they always made time for each other and that warmed my heart to see.Full review posted on my blog Word Wonders

    I read romantic fiction for the escapism I like that I know the ending before I even start the book I like that I know there are going to be two characters that are destined to be together and will have to get over a roadblock in their relationship at about the 80 85% mark that will make it seem like their relationship is doomed but it won t be because of one last great big gesture that will have me swooning at the end This book gave me all of that although there s a big old but coming. I read romantic fiction for the escapism I like that I know the ending before I even start the book I like that I know there are going to be two characters that are destined to be together and will have to get over a roadblock in their relationship at about the 80 85% mark that will make it seem like their relationship is doomed but it won t be because of one last great big gesture that will have me swooning at the end This book gave me all of that although there s a big old but comingon that later This novel delivered a great female MC in the form of Samiah Brooks She s smart, sassy, fiercely independent, and is basically just the kind of woman I wish I could be She s a woman who isn t afraid to be seen as career oriented and categorises her job and career success as being hugely important to her And what I loved about her background story was learning about how how hard she had to push herself to achieve How much extra she had to prove herself because she s a Black woman and how she had this incredible inner zeal There s this fantastic quote that I ve got to share that really made me go woahDo you have any idea how steep the hill I have to climb is just to get people in this industry to take me seriously So many write me off the minute I walk into a room, or when they learn that the S in SBrooks at Trendsetters dot com stands for Samiah and not Samantha or Sarah or some other nonethnic name I m not a perfectionist because I want to be one, it s because I have to be one Doesn t that just hit you right in the feels Doesn t it make you mad at the inequality that a Black woman faces throughout all aspects of her life just because of her skin colour and gender I just love the Black OwnVoices representation that this book brings to the table Major props for that I also really liked the two female friends of Samiah s that she makes early on in the novel Samiah, London and Taylor come together via the joys of live tweeting when they discover that they re all dating the same guy He s swiftly kicked to the curb and the ladies become besties I assume there will be twobooks in this series that will focus on these two other ladies especially because there s a sort of cliffhanger style ending re where one of the ladies ends up in the epilogue.The male lead in this was where I feel the book let me down I did really like that Daniel was mixed race, Black Korean, and loved that this book was all about promoting and normalising diverse male romantic leads But ughhhI just did not like his storyline AT ALL Hello spoiler alert time Daniel was some sort of undercover federal agent that was assigned to work covertly in the company where Samiah worked His job was to try and track down some sort of financial bad guys and misdeeds in the company So basically he was lying about who he was No one in the company knew he was undercover as he had managed to get himself hired as a coder This meant for the entire novel bar the last few chapters his character identity, his dealings with Samiah etc were all tainted by this big old lie And I didn t care for it It kept me from rooting for them as a couple because on one hand you had Samiah who was reluctant to start a relationship because of jerk guys lying to her in the past and her wanting to put her downtime into developing an app, and then you had Daniel with his irritating inner monologue being all oh I m so hopelessly attracted to Samiah but I can t reveal who I truly am to her so I must stay awaybut oh no my loins won t let me be and I must be with her no matter the risk and I m there like no.NO.NO.NO DO NOT LET THIS FABULOUS WOMAN FALL FOR YOU WHEN YOU ARE STRAIGHT UP LYING YOU SNIVELLING WEASEL UGHHHHHHAnd in the climax of the storyline Daniel was an UTTER snake because after he had sex with Samiah he left her lying asleep in bed AND THEN WENT TO HER HANDBAG AND STOLE HER SECURITY PASS Like I know, it was his job yada yada yada but he knowingly deceived Samiah and I basically wished him all sorts of hurt Oh but because this is a romance novel the two characters had to end up together UGHHHH PASS THE SICK BUCKET PLEASE His romantic grand gesture at the end made me want to scream and vomit and scream someand vomit someOh boo hoo to you and your man pain Daniel YOU LIED AND MANIPULATED SAMIAH AND YOU DID NOT DESERVE HER FORGIVENESS There was even this line in the book that had Samiah being all understanding about the greater good of his job and I m like sure, he had a responsibility to justice and bringing down these criminals BUT HE NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN SO UNPROFESSIONAL IN THE FIRST PLACE AND CONNED SAMIAH INTO THINKING HE WAS SOMEONE HE ISN T I never wanted to see a couple break upbut sadly that didn t happen and I m here like ughhhhh So to me the plot of the novel didn t work because there was too much deception on the part of Daniel and I didn t feel that he was truly sorry for his actions It just sucked and I really hope that Samiah dumps his ass if this series does continue onI m so sad about this book The beginning was soooo strong and it has a great opening with the three ladies and the twitter cheat And there was so much to like with the great diversity, the brilliant female characters but the romance 100% was a let down for me I struggled to finish this book I think it took me at least five days to slog through to the end It just didn t make me feel all those happy romantic comedy feels sadlyForreviews and book related chat check out my blogFollow me on TwitterFriend me on Goodreads
