Tour & Review — Playing the Perfect Boyfriend
Playing the Perfect Boyfriend
by Julie Particka
Release Date: June 6, 2016
She’s faking it…but he’s playing for keeps.
Wild child Jade Easler has never met a dick she didn’t like, but there’s only been one she thought about keeping. And now he’s back in town…right after she’s slept with charming Hollywood up-and-comer, Dean Hartley. The fastest way to get her ex’s attention? Show up on the arm of a sexy younger man. She just hopes Dean is up for the task of fake boyfriend…
When he hooked up with his beautifully curvy photographer, Dean thought he’d only get the one night she promised. But when she needs help convincing a former flame she’s ready to settle down, who is he to argue? He’ll get to show her—in as many ways as possible—that giving up crazy, hot sex for a stale, predictable life isn’t what she wants. And prove that what she needs is him.
Unfortunately, this was an okay read for me. I liked it, but I didn’t love it.
I don’t like it when I say this, but I just couldn’t click with Playing the Perfect Boyfriend. The main character, Jade, just didn’t do it for me. I found her to be stuck up, and a tad bratty. I really didn’t that she only wanted Isak because he was safe. What ever happened to fun and daring? Taking a change? A risk? However, I did love the way she spoke her mind, and was not afraid to say anything. I would have liked to see Jade a little bit younger, because she did not seem to be as mature as she should have been, being eight years older than Dean.
I liked Dean, but I could not figure out why he was so crazy about Jade. Especially when he knew that she was only using him to get to Isak. Sure, the sex was great, and maybe that was worth it in the beginning. But as a person, I could relate to Dean and the facade he has to endure for the public.
I enjoyed the plot, and definitely the full of chemistry sexy scenes between Jade and Dean. I like the way everything folded together, and I did think the characters were well developed. I wouldn’t mind picking up another book my Julie Particka and giving it a try!
Julie Particka was told to get serious about her future in Junior High. Several years after getting a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, she realized being serious was over-rated and went back to her first love–writing. Now rather than spending her days in the drudgery of the lab or teaching science to high school students, she disappears into worlds of her own creation where monsters sometimes roam, but true love still conquers all.
She can most often be located in the Detroit area with her favorite minions (the ones who know her as Mom) where she is currently hatching a plot for world domination. It involves cookies for everyone, so she’s pretty sure there’s no way it can fail…except the minions keep eating the cookies.
