  • great female friendships and POC heroine in STEM

    The Boyfriend Project started out with a bang, with heroine Samiah discovering that the guy who she'd recently started dating was dating at least 2 other women at the same time and was spouting the same lies and lines to all of them. She discovers this when one of the other women live tweets a description of her horrible date and the guy in question matches up to Samiah's boyfriend. She immediately marches off to the restaurant to confront him, ends up dumping him publicly, but in return gains the other 2 women, London and Taylor, as new friends. This part of the book was great and I couldn't wait to dive in and see what adventures were in store for Samiah and her new BFFs. As the story went on, it lost some forward momentum and dragged a bit. All of the elements were there for an enjoyable story, but it didn't fully gell for me. I loved the developing relationship between the three women, as well as the detailed descriptions of the software company Samiah worked for, the projects she was working on, the challenges she faced as a minority woman working in a demanding STEM job. Where the book didn't quite measure up was in the romance between her and Daniel, a Treasury dept. employee who obtains at job at her company to investigate some financial improprieties suspected of being committed (Samiah is not under suspicion). I never felt any sparks between them and didn't like the way Daniel kept pulling away because he knew it was wrong to get involved with Samiah under false pretenses, but then would turn around and reel her back in as soon as she took his cues and tried to maintain some distance. By the end of the book, their romance felt real, but it was a bit too little too late. In the end, I liked the book, but I didn't love it. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • Lovely Black romance with strong interesting leads

    I got this as a Netgalley e-ARC. I've stopped running a blog since about 2016, so I stopped requesting books, but this just...caught my eye. I HAD to have it. And this was the perfect book for the moment. I love Black romance. I loved our leads Samiah and Daniel, I spent the whole book rooting for them to get together and stay together. I also enjoyed the friendship between London, Samiah and Taylor, even though I didn't love their meetcute because I thought there would a lot more emotional fallout or followup media attention from their viral video, but it seemed like Samiah was uninterested in it, so the story moved on. I hope with the other books might explore it a bit more. It was a great because I felt the stakes felt relatively equal between their work even though the scale was different with Samiah wanting to be promoted, and our friend Daniel trying to take down an international money laundering scheme. So you know different things. I also came to conclusion although I like an office romance, the office part is mostly wallpaper. I found Samiah's app and the tech company interesting but I would have traded some of the details for more romance! But I pick so much of my reading based on mood, so this was great for me. Overall if you're looking for some fluff and heat, some stakes, some misunderstandings and some secrets, but overall it worked.

  • #SquadGoals

    In the first chapter, you get a glimpse of how epically fierce Samiah is. I was immediately 100% here for these ladies. This book had me feeling every single emotion I could possibly think of, from laughing and crying to that punched in gut devastation and hope. There is nothing I love more than super strong female leads but add in that this amazing woman is killing it in a male dominated STEM field? Samiah had me cheering for her so much that I forgot for a second she's not actually real. I loved Daniel too but Samiah is the one that had me swooning my way through this story. I *need* Taylor and London's stories!! I'll be counting down until I can hang out with #SquadGoals again!!!

  • Great read!

    This was my first time reading Farrah Rochon and I loved her voice! The central friendship between the women was believable and heartwarming, and the chemistry between the hero and heroine was spot on. The author did a great job of showing us how the heroine might be stable and have a good life on her own, but these new relationships really add a layer of richness to her days. I'll be searching out other titles by this author, knowing I'm in for a treat.

  • Rated 4.5 Stars

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Boyfriend Project. It's funny. It's sexy. It's amazing. I loved how it focused on relationships not just between Samiah and Daniel but also between Samiah and her sister as well as Samiah and her friends. Another thing I loved about it was that it dealt with women working in male dominated fields, on top of that Samiah is a black woman which adds another layer to it, she's subjected to rules that don't apply to anyone else. I think the author did a great job of highlighting these issues. I loved it and highly recommend it to all. I'm looking forward to reading London and Taylor's stories.

    Thanks for your feedback!
