Picture-Perfect Boyfriend by Becky Dean

Five stars

Two strangers, one tropical island, and lots of lies in this funny beach romance from the author of Love & Other Great Expectations!

Aspiring nature photographer Kenzie Reed just can’t get her straitlaced family of optometrists to take her art seriously. She’s resigned to putting aside her dreams and accepting the depressing life that awaits her at the family business. She even makes up a fake, boring boyfriend—Jacob—to get her parents off her back.

But when the Reeds arrive in Hawaii for spring break, Kenzie is shocked that “Jacob” shows up at the airport—and joins their vacation. Kenzie can’t reveal him as a fraud without confessing her lie, so she’s stuck playing along while trying to find out who he really is.

No way is she going to actually fall for him—because even though he’s funny, nice, smart, and cute, he’s also a liar. Isn’t he?

Filled with warm summer breezes and salty sea air, Becky Dean’s Picture-Perfect Boyfriend will sweep you off your feet into a tropical paradise, sun on your shoulders—where love is just around a palm tree.

This is a new favorite book!!!

I’m already a HUGE fan of Becky Dean’s YA contemporary reads. Her characters are spot on and so real life that it makes me want to reach out and hug them. I feel their pain, and sometimes it mirrors my own. Not to mention they’re always hilarious and keep you laughing throughout the entire book!!

All that aside… the story. Y’all, it was amazing! It was crafted impeccably and done so well!! ACK!!!!!! This book has my heart for sure!!!

If you’re looking for a fun light-hearted YA contemporary that tackles good themes, this book is for you! It’s a perfect summer read to dive into on the beach. Or anywhere! It’s amazing. There’s still time to preorder it and get all kinds of fun goodies… So go do that!!!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own!
