The Boyfriend Thief
By Shana Norris
Publication date: March 24, 2014
The Studio – a Paper Lantern Lit imprint, 350 pages
Avery James doesn’t believe in romance—she’s studied enough biology to know that love is nothing more than hormones and chemicals. Besides, she has more practical goals in mind, namely saving up for a summer humanitarian program in Costa Rica. But when her Diggity Dog House supervisor denies her a raise and Avery finds herself $500 dollars short for the trip of a lifetime, Avery has no choice but to accept an unexpected offer. The deal? She must steal her arch nemesis Hannah’s boyfriend before prom, giving Avery eleven days to seduce Zac Greeley.
Avery is sure the job will be easy. But a few midnight comedy shows and spontaneous dance parties (not to mention one particularly intimate carwash) later, Avery finds herself questioning everything she’s ever thought about love. Could Zac’s signature cherry-lime Slurpees be causing brain freeze, or is Avery actually starting to fall for him?
Will Avery be able to steal Zac away from Hannah before he steals Avery’s heart?
My friend at Paper Lantern Lit just launched their new, boutique digital imprint — The Studio at Paper Lantern Lit — and I’m pumped to be a part of their blog tour for its debut e-book, The Boyfriend Thief by Shana Norris.
It’s a pretty cute little book. I say “little” because I basically read it in two very short sittings — the train to work and the train home. Okay, so it’s a long train ride and I can speed read…but my point is it’s the type of book you load on your eReader for when you’re on the beach, have a plane ride, etc. It was a good distraction for me on a dreary work day.
It’s a story you’ve seen before to some extent: A girl gets a guy to fall for her under false pretenses, but then falls for him for real, things blow up, etc. But it’s a concept that sucks me in every time. Cuteness! Drama! Unexpected romance! Fights!
