THE BOYFRIEND SWAP – blurb
If you follow me on social media, you already know the title of my next novel—THE BOYFRIEND SWAP. I actually shared the title by video. I’d never done that before, and it was equal parts exhilarating and scary! Anyway, I’m beyond excited to share this book with you when it’s released by Henery Press on November 7th. In the coming months, I’ll share the cover, teasers, excerpts etc. Today, I’m revealing the back-cover-copy. In other words, what the heck is THE BOYFRIEND SWAP about anyway?
Here you go:
The Holiday meets The Proposal
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 flakey 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
The book has been added to Goodreads and I hope you’ll add it to your “to read” shelf.
What do you think of the title? The blurb? If you have any questions, let me know in the comments and I’ll be sure to add them in my next post.
Until next time!
I love the title and the blurb. Is Robyn an only child?
Thanks! Robyn actually has a younger brother, Jordon 🙂
Sidney is an only child, though.
Hi Meredith – what a fun idea. I love it! Best of luck and I will definitely be looking out for it. I read all your blog posts by the way – they’re always so interesting.
Thanks so much, Ruth! That means so much to me 🙂
Really looking forward to reading it, congratulations on another upcoming publication. It sounds brilliant, and already added to my goodreads – want to read!
Thank you, Amanda! I will send you the ARC as soon as it’s available 🙂
Wow, this sounds great! Keep ’em coming.
Thanks, Amy! I will 🙂
This book sounds like so much fun, Meredith! And you know I love a holiday-themed story. Can’t wait!
Thanks so much, Tracie!
This sounds like so much fun! It’s got movie potential already! Who do you see as the maon characters? I will buy it!
Thank you so much! I have given the casting some thought, but not too much. Right now, I can picture Emma Stone (Sidney), Zac Efron (Perry), Jessica Lowndes (Robyn), and Wes Brown (Will). I see it more as a Hallmark movie of which the latter two have starred in many…My thoughts on casting are constantly evolving 🙂
