Blog Tour + Book Review | The Stand-In Boyfriend by Emma Doherty (@emma.doherty.author)

 Livy Chapman is in love with Jessie Stephenson. It’s that simple. She has been for years but he only see’s her as his best friend. His best friend who copies her homework, relies on her to bail him out of trouble and who he hooks up with other girls in front of. 
Enough is enough and when Chase Mitchell, star of the soccer team, and all round Mr. Popular steps in and convinces her that they can do each other a favour by pretending to date, Livy is just crazy enough over Jessie to agree to it.
I mean, Chase is just her stand-in boyfriend. Nothing could go wrong. Right?

Book Review


I am head over heels in love with this book!

The first time I read the excerpt, I just knew I need to get my hands on this one, and it didn't disappoint.

Love is sometimes just right in front of us, and we couldn't see it. We look further away. Livy Chapman is in love with her best friend Jessie Stephenson for forever. But she remained in the friendzone - he girl who copies his homework, supports him and hooks up with other girls in front of. So when Chase Mitchell, the starplayer of the soccer team offers himself to be her fake-boyfriend to drive off his crazy ex and have Jessie noticed her, she reluctantly agreed.

But, it turned out that Chase Mitchell was more than just a pretty face. He can be sweet, caring, thoughtful, and a good kisser. He brings out the best in her, and looks at her like she's the most beautiful girl in the world even in her worst outfit. Although - this is just pretend right?

What happens when the line gets blurred? Who will Livy choose?

I love how their 'pretend' relationship became. I'm glad that Livy didn't exactly agree at first, and how Chase finally wore her down and convinced her. Only that Chase has motives of his own. The pacing was just perfect, and everything was just right. Nothing was rushed. There was enough anticipation that will take you to the edge of your seat.

I love best friend romance, seriously. But there is always an exception - and it is this one. Livy deserves her HEA. She had been through so much when she was young, and is suffering from panic attacks and anxiety. I love that she has Sophie who has her back and supports her all the way. As for Chase, OMG, he's the best ever. He has his own secret that would seriously make you swoon and your heart melts. And god, did my heart break when Livy got stupid for a while there. I was just glad she finally realized who she wanted.

This one is a must-read.
