I really enjoyed this book! The characters were so relatable and fun. I like that the main characters, Luc and Oliver, are super relatable regardless of your gender and sexual identity. because we all have anxieties or parts of ourselves that we are self-conscious about. Really enjoyable book that I will highly recommend!

This book was so much fun! It was exactly what I was looking for when I started reading. It follows Luc, son of rock star parents, who is forever in the news for his behavior, or his family and cannot keep a boyfriend to save his life. He decides that he needs to clean up his image, and that he needs a “fake boyfriend” to help with that, since he can’t seem to keep a real one. Enter Oliver. A clean cut, respectable, handsome man with a great job and a calm life. He agrees to be Luc’s “boyfriend” if Luc pretends to be his. As these things do, they go horribly wrong, and then so very right. 

I thought the writing in this was hilarious. There were some laugh out loud lines, and some amazing characters. I really loved the writing style, and I will definitely be looking into Alexis’s other books. This book was cheesy at times, but just the right amount. I loved it!

I was so happy that the publisher SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca and NetGalley selected me for this completely delightful book, and it's totally a five star read for me 😍

Boyfriend Material is a fake relationship trope, beautifully written in the first person (Lucien's) POV (which I love) and full of actual laugh-out-loud lines. I adored the main characters Lucien and Oliver, and the way their relationship developed throughout the book. They are both flawed and delicate and strong and funny and so relatable, and possess all the great characteristics that make the reader fall in love from the get-go.

Luc is the 'slightly off the rails' product of (divorced) famous parents, with all the drama and media interest that goes with it, whilst Oliver is a middle class barrister with painful parents and very high expectations. The friendship groups are fabulous characters in their own right and actually reminded me a lot of Bridget's friends (from Bridget Jones' Diary).

Such a brilliant book, especially for Valentine's Day.

Highly recommended ✨✨✨✨✨
