The Perfect Boyfriend picks up right where we left Reagan and Ian in The Boyfriend List. As their friendship blossoms quickly into a steamy romance, Reagan and Ian have to learn to navigate their shifting relationship…and everything that entails. But their newfound bliss doesn’t come without a few unexpected challenges.
In the midst of realizing just how sweet the romance can be between them, and all the benefits of their new dynamic, Reagan is informed that her ideal situation has changed. Not only will she need to begin taking on more classes to speed up her graduation date, but she’ll also have to start looking for a job to supplement her fading income. Meanwhile, Ian has chosen to pull out of school once his father is diagnosed with a terminal illness in order to help manage the family business and spend time with him while he still can. But he wrestles with the guilt of leaving Reagan behind, and the pressure of his new responsibilities.
As the two meet their new challenges head-on, they’ll be forced to discover whether or not they’re as compatible as lovers as they were as friends. With their focus pulled in so many directions, will they have what it takes to keep a long distance relationship alive? Can Ian prove that he’s still be the perfect boyfriend, or will they fold to statistics under the growing tensions of their lives? Throw in some manipulative exes, a new boss with an inflated ego, and a co-worker from hell and the two have a recipe for either a fairy tale ending, or a complete disaster.
The Perfect Boyfriend is a New Adult Romance about trust, love, and discovering the true depths of personal strength.

The Perfect Boyfriend is the follow up to The Boyfriend List and I must say it’s a great sequel. I really enjoyed the first book of the series and was eager to read this next one. The story starts off right where the first book ended as Reagan and Ian come to terms with their feelings for one another.
I really enjoyed reading about the growth of each character as they both have to overcome a few obstacles to try and make their romance work. There are some rocky moments and the reader has a slight panic attack…I know I did. I also loved the fact that there were some steamy scenes in there…LOL. You can’t go wrong with that. Ian is such a great character. His sexiness yet humble personality just melted my heart. I adored Reagan’s determination as it added the right balance. The connection between Ian and Reagan is so genuine and sweet. They make a very cute couple. I loved how Ian constantly cared for her and worked so hard to get her to open up.
“This isn’t just another first date. This is the beginning of forever for you and me. And if you decide that’s not what you want down the road, that’s fine. But Reagan, my intentions aren’t just to find another short-term girlfriend. I want you, all of you, for as long as you’re willing to give me.”
I absolutely loved Petra. That girl just rocks in this story and I’m hoping she gets her own story. Overall, this was a fun and enjoyable read. I finished it in one sitting and am eager to read the continuation the series.
