Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy
Jodi Nichols isn't the most romantic girl on the planet. She doesn't get mushy over fictional love stories, or picture herself getting swept away by a handsome hero. She's much too grounded in reality—and much too busy working as a concierge at the luxurious Regent hotel. Helping customers is Jodi's passion in life, and while romance may be on the back burner for now, she is nursing a little crush on Levi, the cute and friendly deliveryman for the hotel packages. And unless she's imagining things, Levi feels the same way about her.
But Jodi's friends think she's turning into a lonely workaholic. They try to fix her love life, buying her a copy of the bestselling relationship guide that claims women can find true love by channeling the wisdom of famous storybook heroines. Jodi thinks it sounds crazy—no way is she acting like Jane Eyre or Lizzie Bennet to find a man! But when Levi suddenly grows distant and Jodi's chances with him seem to fizzle before her eyes, she wonders if her friends might have a point after all. Disheartened and lonely, she decides to give the so-called relationship guide a whirl, with unexpected consequences.
Before you can say ‘Pride and Prejudice', Jodi is up to her neck in handsome, brooding men that seem too much like fictional heroes to be true. Her attempts to think like the greatest heroines in romance lead her to meet everything from a modern Mr. Rochester to an angsty Heathcliff, and even a Darcy-esque novelist. But when a former crush re-enters her life in the form of a modern day Romeo, Jodi wonders if there might be something to this ‘inner heroine' thing after all. Now, if she could just stop thinking about Levi, then maybe her happy-ever-after will fall into place…or is something still missing from Jodi's storybook romance?

My face hurts from smiling throughout this story. Super adorable romance novel. I do not ever give spoilers in my reviews and this is one time I want to, here's why. BOYFRIEND BY THE BOOK teaches a lesson that is very subtle, but very important to any young lady starting to date or if they have a crush.
Have your daughter, niece, or any high school young lady in your life read this. They will love this book! It is a clean sweet romance story for them. Maybe buy the ebook as a gift for them on their reader or phone and have them read it.
I regret saying that at times I found this story uneventful, however this is a well written novel. When you want something light and easy to read something that might make you smile, as it did me, this is a great read.
