Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Heat Rating: 🔥 (closed door)
I received a complimentary audiobook from the publisher and Libor.fm
Luc is in need of a fake boyfriend. He’s just a tiny bit famous – being that his mom and dad are famous rockstars and he can’t really go out without getting recognized.
After a recent paparazzi picture paints him in an unfavorable light, Luc’s work has recently informed him that he needs to get his act together or risk getting fired. Luc isn’t quite sure what to do, but his friends have a brilliant idea! Luc needs a fake boyfriend and they have a mutual friend in common who is also in a predicament and could use a fake boyfriend too.
This is where Luc meets Oliver. Where Luc is a bit spontaneous, Oliver is the exact opposite. But both are in need of a fake boyfriend and so their fake relationship begins.
I love a great fake relationship trope and Oliver and Luc were so damn cute together! I loved that Oliver immediately calls Luc by his full name (Lucian) whenever they are together. These two clearly have feelings for one another and yet they are also vulnerable and their relationship felt real. They had some miscommunication, moments when they weren’t their best and also times when they were there to support one another no matter what.
I really enjoyed the writing by Alexis Hall in this M/M romantic comedy. I listened to the audiobook and it reminded me a lot of Gilmore Girls with the fast dialogue and pop culture references thrown in. This was my first book by Alexis Hall, but I’m looking forward to reading more by this talented author!
I enjoyed listening to the audiobook of Boyfriend Material. The narration by Joe Jameson was so good! I loved the various characters that he narrated. Anytime Luc’s mom was being narrated I was just cracking up because the voices were narrated so well!! I wouldn’t hesitate to listen to another audiobook narrated by Joe Jameson.
