I really enjoyed reading The Boyfriend List, the first book in Renee Novelle's Boyfriend Series and was eager to begin THE PERFECT BOYFRIEND almost immediately afterwards. I am very happy to be able to say I liked it even more. Partly because for me, with a good sequel it always feels like I'm hanging out with old friends, or at least it should, and The Perfect Boyfriend certainly does.

Reagan and Ian are solidly together after a little bump in the road named Isabella that occurred in the first

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 sligh

This is book two in the Boyfriend Series
Yes, book one needs to be read before you read this book.

This book starts off right where book one left off.
I gave this book 5 stars.

Reagan and Ian have to learn to love each other as life starts to fall apart around them. They are confronted with several situations that would destroy any normal couple just starting out. But this is Reagan and Ian they are the best of friends. I loved how much more confident Reagan was in this book. She has grown so m

It was great to pick up exactly where I left off with Reagan and Ian in The Boyfriend List. I was a little apprehensive about starting this book because of the way the first book ended. There is what I though was a HEA but turned out to be a Happy For Now. You can't have a second book and not have conflict between Reagan and Ian. I must say Renee met my expectations and my fears were unfounded.

I loved how much more secure Reagan was in this book. Of course it wasn't easy for her and I admire her

The Perfect Boyfriend is a great read!!! It starts out right where The Boyfriend List left off. It can not be read a s a standalone, you must read The Boyfriend List first.

Ian and Reagan are moving forward with taking their relationship from a friendship to a romantic relationship. Reagan has a few little freaks out as they are transitioning from friends to boyfriend and girlfriend. Just as everything prefect, life throws a curve ball at them. They deal with a parent that is ill, an ex of Ian's

I have to start saying that you need to read book 1 really before reading this one. Alas, I picked this one to read for a blog tour not realizing it was book 2, my mistake, not anyone else's, so it took me a while to place things together, once I did though, I enjoyed this book.

I really enjoyed reading The Perfect Boyfriend, even though I hadn’t read the first of the series it really didn’t matter as this can be read as a standalone book too.

The main characters are Reagan and Ian who have been friends for a long time and finally get it on only to have the romance practically wrenched away from them as soon as it starts when Ian’s father falls ill. With jealous girls making up rumours can Reagan keep it together and learn to trust Ian and know the girls are lying or wil

I received this book for an honest review. This is the 2nd book in the series. This picks right where the Boyfriend List ends. For this I was extremely happy. Both these books were very enjoyable. It was really nice to see the characters grow from the first book. The connection between Ian and Reagan is so sweet and genuine. I think that what I enjoyed the most about these books was that this book didnt show their romance as always being smooth sailing just like any relationship there are some b ...more

Sweet, clean romance, but too predictable and too perfect.

“The Perfect Boyfriend” is the sequel to “The Boyfriend List” and picks up where the first book left off. This can be read as a standalone (which I did); however, reading the first book could be beneficial as it would provide some additional insight into the characters and background information into recent events.

Renee Novelle does a beautiful job with her creation of characters that have distinct personalities. Reagan, the main characte

The Perfect Boyfriend is the continuation of Reagan and Ian’s story from The Boyfriend List, so if you haven’t read the first book, one click that and then revisit this review.

So… if being in a relationship isn’t difficult enough, Reagan and Ian have so much going against them. The one thing they have going in their favor is that they know each other very well. A friendship first before finding something more. Something more has just turned into an incredible journey. But with something more com

With a title such as The Perfect Boyfriend, in my opinion you know the books in going to be good and Renee Novelle doesn't disappoint in her latest novel which is the second story in the Boyfriend series.

As the novel carries on from the first book The Boyfriend List readers are treated to the progession of the relationship between the two lead characters - Reagan and Ian and all the challenges that a relationship entails. This book will have you laughing at peak moments, heart-wrenching at other

This one felt more like an extended epilogue to the first book. Where the first one ended, we could have pretty much figured out where the story was going to go. Although, this book does throw a couple of twists at Reagan and Ian, to further test their love and devotion to each other. Again, Reagan is dealing with a lot of understandable trust issues. Her relationship with Ian is still too fresh and new, so I understand her caution to a point. Once you have been burned, it is very difficult to d ...more

I really enjoyed The Perfect Boyfriend by Renee Novelle which is the follow-up to The Boyfriend List. This story starts off right where the first book ended. Reagan and Ian are finally coming to terms with their feelings for one another. This was book took me on quite an emotional rollercoaster. I laughed with them, cried with them and sometimes wanted to jump into my kindle and slap them.

Broadway Girl  Book Reviews (Beth Lattanzi)
This was an adorable story of taking a friendship to the next level and all the trials that come along with relationships. It was easy to read and didn’t make you feel overwhelmed with too much drama. It had enough drama, humor, romance and friendship to keep the reader happy!

The friendship between Reagan and Petra was remarkable. It showed how true best friends should be. I loved when Petra would tell it like it is when Reagan would start questioning things. How she pushed her friend when it ca

I really like this book. This was an amazing follow-up to The Boyfriend List. This book really showed the ups and downs of a relationship, no matter how perfect the couple. This book was sweet, funny, emotional and much hotter than book one.

This is the continuation of Reagan and Ian. Just as they are settling into a relationship, Reagan and Ian have no idea the obstacles their new relationship is about to face. As distance, life, and insecurities arise, their deep bond as best friends w

The Perfect Boyfriend is book two in the Boyfriend series by Renee Novelle and picks up exactly where book one finishes. If you haven’t read book one I suggest you do so before reading this one. 
This book is all about the growth of relationships and the hardships of real life. In its essence this is a sweet story of young adults finding their footing while transitioning into a grown up world. Reagan is an idealist, a dreamer she believes in one true love and happily ever afters but its doesn’t l

The Perfect Boyfriend starts up right where Ian & Reagan left off in The Boyfriend List . Which as a reader is always a great thing to discover. Ian and Reagan are still getting their grips on their new relationship. It's adorable. I love Ian. He's the perfect type of guy. I think the fact they were best friends before starting a relationship also helps them out. Now everything isn't all perfect...Reagan has some bumps and hurtles she must face. As does Ian.

Such a beautiful story of Love, Trust, Compassion and friendship.

Ian is definitely the epitome of the best kind of man there is to have as a boyfriend or friend. The relationship he shares with Reagan is flawed but only because she has to learn to trust him. This story begins exactly where the Boyfriend list left off. I can't tell you how much I loved that because I had read a while before and really just needed to read the first few sentences to be caught up again. It was that seamless.

** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. **

The Perfect Boyfriend is Book 2 in The Boyfriend Series, following behind The Boyfriend List. In all honesty, I enjoyed this book more than the first! I enjoyed reading about Raegan and Ian’s growing relationship. It was also a little refreshing to read a book that focused on more of the emotional aspects of a relationship than on the sexual side. In reading this book, I remembered how much I hated Isabella from the first bo

Wow, I really loved this book, it felt like it went quick, but all the story was didn't drag on for you to get to the story. Reagan and Ian seem to work out their kinks and things fall into place. I love that you get to read this as a follow on from The Boyfriend List, but I also like for someone like me who sometimes picks up a book not realising there is a Prequel you can catch on.

I really love knowing that this story is left open for another book if the author decides to.
