In this witty rom-com, three young women bond when the live-tweeting of a disastrous date leads them to discover they've all been duped by the same man.

Samiah Brooks never thought she would be "that" girl. But a live tweet of a horrific date just revealed the painful truth: She's been catfished by a three-timing jerk of a boyfriend. Suddenly Samiah - along with his two other "girlfriends", London and Taylor - have gone viral online. Now the three new besties are making a pact to spend the next six months investing in themselves. No men and no dating.

For once Samiah is putting herself first, and that includes finally developing the app she's always dreamed of creating. Which is the exact moment she meets the deliciously sexy Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? But is Daniel really boyfriend material, or is he maybe just a little too good to be true?
WHAT A BEAUTY OF A BOOK! Farrah Rochon stole the entire show with this first installment in a new series!

The story starts off with Samiah finding out that her "boyfriend" has been basically catfishing her. She arrives at the restaurant where he is, ends things with him, and gains two friends that this bf was also catfishing. This ended up going completely viral, something Samiah wasn't too happy about and even questioned if she should not be friends with Taylor and London. I have to say that this portion of the book had me laughing and giggling so much! It really set up the premise for the rest of the book.

She wouldn't tolerate anything less than world domination.

Samiah's character is surely one to admire. Being a woman of color in the tech industry hasn't been easy. She has had to climb through hurdles and fight harder than anyone else. The perseverance and patience this woman has puts my nonexistent one to shame. She has unfortunately been the victim of people stealing her ideas and even then, she has been a pro at handling these situations). Because of this, she has kept a project of hers a secret. She wants to launch a "Just Friends" app, and doesn't want anyone stealing this baby.

He made her feel bold and playful and so many other delicious things.

Now let's talk about the hotshot tech! I kind of melted a lot a little with Daniel throughout the entire novel. There's just something about him that had me swooning at every second. And yes, I just swooned right now thinking about him! Okay, back to this PG review. *ahem* Daniel isn't necessarily all that he seems to be. Yes, he's totally a great guy (amazing!), but the reason why he's at Samiah's job is not merely because he needs a job. Of course, this is something he keeps a secret from everyone, including Samiah.

I totally understood why Daniel did what he did and why he kept it a secret. I give him props for truly trying to stay away from Samiah, but he just couldn't help but be so attracted by this fierce and gorgeous woman. I loved how genuine their friendship and then relationship was. It made me root for them so much! They talked! THEY ACTUALLY HAD GENUINE CONVERSATIONS! This spoke volumes for me. The author did a fantastic job with this relationship!

"I don't mind waking up at the crack of dawn if it means I get to spend the night with you."

Now let's talk about the female friendships! Taylor, London and Samiah couldn't be more different, but they just fit so well together! These ladies are true #SquadGoals despite of how they met. I admired how these ladies supported each others' endeavors no matter what. They truly believed in each other and I find that so beautiful for women who just met!

"I'm not sure we can call ourselves #SquadGoals if there's only one person in the squad reaching her goals. We better get our asses in gear."

Overall, The Boyfriend Project is a wonderful romance filled with outstanding friendship, a strong and fierce and independent heroine, an oh-so-sweet and delicious hero, and it also features talks on racism in the tech industry as well as for women of color. I truly enjoyed that the author had those talks in the book because it added to the depth-level of the story and the characters. Also, that ending has me so freaking excited for the next book!!

AUDIOBOOK IMPRESSIONS:

It was my first time listening to Je Nie Fleming as a narrator and it so won't be the last time! Her voice was so soothing and fit the characters so well. Her voice truly enhanced the experience for me and made me enjoy the story even more!
