Review | Thirty Day Boyfriend by Whitney G.

Synopsis

I should've never agreed to this arrangement...

Thirty days ago, my boss—Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a “very generous” severance package.

The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I’ve secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

I definitely didn’t need to think twice about this. I signed my name and started counting down the seconds to when I would never have to deal with his special brand of ass-holery again.

I only made it to one minute...

We argued the entire four-hour flight to his hometown, failed to make a convincing impression with the welcoming press, and right when I was about to knock that arrogant look off his face in real life? He purposely dropped his bath towel in front of me, distracting me with his nine-inch cock to "show me who the bigger person was" in our relationship. Then he gave me his trademark smirk once again and asked if I wanted to consummate our marriage.

Tragically, this is only day one. We still have 29 more days to go...

Review | Thirty Day Boyfriend

by Whitney G. 

Thirty Day Boyfriend was a cute, entertaining, and sexy read that made me laugh and feel giddy. While it is a novella, the book didn’t feel as fast-paced as I thought it would. The story had great banter, well-written sex scenes, and two lovable characters wrapped up in one of my favorite tropes.

Two years. Emily Johnson has been working as the executive assistant of the real “Wolf of Wall Street” Nicholas A. Wolf for two years, and she’s ready to go. As the right-hand woman of Mr. Wolf, she is contract-bound for two more years, so she’s trying to sneak around, find a way to leave, and finally work in a law firm like she’s always planned. But Nicolas is the best at his job for a reason. He’s always a few steps ahead, and so Emily is still stuck with him.

Nicholas A. Wolf has never had problems sealing deals, but he’s stuck in a rut when a company he wants to buy refuses to sell it to him. The current owner is apparently old-school and prefers to hand over his company who has the same values. A family man, he said. And so a reformed playboy, family man Nicholas shall be.

No one could play the role of his fiancée better than Emily, the one woman who knows him almost as much as he knows himself, so to convince her to agree on a thirty-day agreement, he offers her something she can’t refuse—freedom, and a very very generous severance pay.

I love both characters! Nicholas is the kind of hero I love. He’s powerful in his career, determined but not in a suffocating way, cocky but not insufferable,  and secretly caring and sweet to the bones. Emily is just as lovable. She doesn’t cower to him, gives as much as Nicolas does, and is fiercely loyal to those she cares for.

The chemistry and sexual tension are palpable from start to finish, but what I love the most about Thirty Day Boyfriend is that it was shown not just through lust, but through their fantastic banter and basically all interactions. I’m 100% convinced they’re perfect for each other, and everything they did made me giggle and swoon.

I always cross my fingers whenever I read this author’s works since it’s been a hit-and-miss for me, but Thirty Day Boyfriend was definitely a hit. I would have wanted to read more about their families, especially the subplot about Nicholas’ brother, since that part felt a bit rushed and lacked introduction and air time. But the ending more than made up for it, and I finished reading the story a happy and satisfied girl.
