The Boyfriend Swap by Meredith Schorr

Kindle Edition, 293 pages
Expected publication: November 7th 2017 by Henery Press

 Is Christmas really the most wonderful time of the year? New Yorkers Robyn Lane and Sidney Bellows aren’t so sure. Robyn has always dated struggling creative types. For once, her parents would love her to bring someone with health insurance and a 401(k) to their Chrismukkah celebration. Her actor boyfriend doesn’t qualify. While across town, Sidney’s professional life already belongs to her parents. She’s an attorney at her father’s law firm and she works tirelessly to keep her love life private. If she brings her lawyer boyfriend to their annual Christmas extravaganza, her parents will have the wedding planned by New Year’s Eve.

A mutual friend playfully suggests they trade boyfriends for the holidays. The women share a laugh, but after copious amounts of wine, decide The Boyfriend Swap could be the perfect solution. This way, Robyn can show off her stable attorney boyfriend and Sidney’s high-society family will take no interest in her flaky actor beau.

It’s a brilliant plan—in theory. In practice—not so much. When Will turns out to be the boy-next-door Robyn crushed on hard throughout her teenage years, and Sidney’s family fawns all over Perry like he’s an Oscar-winner rather than a D-list wannabe, one thing is certain: The Boyfriend Swap might just change their lives forever.

My Thoughts…

Every book by Meredith Schorr has turned into a must-read for me.    When she offered The Boyfriend Swap I knew that I wouldn’t be able to turn it down.   Now that I am done with the book it is on my must-read list too.    

When the plan was for hatched for the boyfriend swap I could see that there would be hiccups, fun, and hopefully some romance.    I enjoyed seeing the traditions of Robyn and Sidney’s families.   Their celebration of Christmas was a family experience and it was fun to see how different their families were.  Robyn’s family seemed more my style, with the sing a longs, presents, and meals.   I felt that I could relate to her more than Sidney’s high style, fancy, expensive celebrations.     Yet, both families were fun and interesting.  

As the story went on I found myself laughing, smiling, and thoroughly enjoying every page.   The Boyfriend Swap is a book I’d definitely recommend picking up. 

Thank you Meredith Schorr and NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
