I truly loved this emotional and heartfelt read--another home run from the world of the Misadventures books. Oliver is one of the most engaging and swoon-worthy heroes it's been a pleasure for me to read, heading up a cast of incredible but believable characters and a love story that unfolds with beautiful realism. Loved Ms. Blue's very creative take on this super cool theme, crafted into a plot that's truly a page-turner. Brava!

This was a no no for me.
What was so bad in this book?
Everything basically.
First of all, the story.
Oliver was a model but his career just got non existent and he was suddenly short of money. He got then an idea about starting a little dating business, where he would be the dreamy book boyfriend women get crazy about. From this business gets to meet Bailey, who he falls in love with.

Fantasies do come true...

Victoria Blue made me smile with all the feels in this book. Oliver has all the traits that I love in a man. Strong, adventurous, and romantic with a smoldering sexiness. Oliver is only 27 years old, but in the world of modelling, the industry already considers him past his "best before date". With financial obligations looming, he comes up with an ingenious idea to start a company that fulfills every romance reader's dreams, date your favorite Book Boyfriend.

OMG Victoria Blue this was one of the best Romance novels that I have read in a while. I give you two big thumbs up for all the work and dedication you put into this book. Welcome to the misadventure word. It’s going to be a fun and wild ride. Where is my book boyfriend now??? I also loved the twist and turns I really didn’t know what was going to happen was he going to win Bailey over in the end or was he going to get with Skye in the end. Thank you for your amazing work!!!!

4.5 stars

So, anyone who reads romance has one or more book boyfriends, right? And, who wouldn't want to spend just one night with him … have all that alpha attention, romance and maybe a hot time in bed with him? Fantasies are wonderful until you fall for that fantasy and it becomes real.

Welcome to Book Boyfriend Inc. where fantasies come to life one book at a time.

Oliver had a great idea until it was pointed out to him that he is practically a prostitute. He had to change that and quick. No wa

Unfortunately this book just didn’t so it for me. It had potential for sure but I just couldn’t connect with it.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

The storyline was enjoyable though. I liked the idea of a book boyfriend agency, that sounds like it would be an absolute hoot to try out I just couldn’t stay focused and found myself skipping through parts.

For me this book just wasn’t what I was expecting and I absolutely HATE not being able to enjoy a book. I’m giving it 3 stars for the

This is a new to me author but I love the misadventures series.

This story was not what I was expecting but in a good way. It was full of turns I never expected. I was hooked from the start. Oliver is swoon-worthy, but then again when you come up with the idea to be a book boyfriend for women you kind of have to be. Of course, he befriends his neighbor to help him out and his roommate, Skye, thinks it is a terrible idea. When Oliver begins to have a relationship with one of his clients how will

Wow, such a good book. Oliver is hot, sexy as obviously knows how to please a woman. He comes up with an idea to be a book boyfriend, I mean come on all the ladies want what's in the romance books. I myself have heard them around the pool talking, so why not. I need extra cash and the women need a man that can take care of the job. What could go wrong!?? My roommate thinks is a bad idea, and the roommate is a woman. Not just any woman but his best friend. Can Oliver pull it off or does the busin ...more

Victoria blew me away with this Misadventures. I wish I could give it more then 5 stars.

Oliver is everything a woman wants and more.
Going from a household name in the modelling world to barely being able to pay his bills Oliver decides to start Book Boyfriend Inc.
Then he meets Bailey, a married, career minded woman who needs more.

But what happens when Oliver finds out that both Bailey and his room mate Skye both work for City Hall tensions flare and loyalty is tested.

What A Fabulous Book Boyfriend

First let me say, that I want an Oliver Connelly of my very own. He is the most considerate, thoughtful, generous, loving man Ever!!!! In this Misadventures book we are treated to Oliver Connelly, Bailey Hardin, and Skye Jordan, plus Janine who helps immensely with Oliver's business, Book Boyfriend, Inc. He starts the business as he needs money because he no longer can secure any modeling contracts. He meets Bailey on a book boyfriend date and he falls for her. Ther

Words can’t even describe how blown away I am with this new addition to the Misadventures series.

Victoria Blue isn’t a new author to me, I’ve read Secrets Of Stone series which she collaborated with Angel Payne with and deliverers an amazing series and now she’s joined the Misadventures series and just given us an amazing, outstanding, all consuming, addicting and down right SEXY read! She’s such a great addiction to the Misadventures community!

This one has my mind going in so many directions and pleasantly, most were wrong turns. Oliver has to face reality when his status as the most sought after male model falls down the rabbit hole. But, his best friend/roommate Skye depends on him to pull his share of the load.
He gets an idea from the Romance novel loving neighbors and begins Book Boyfriend Inc. Who would not want a date with their favorite Book Boyfriend?

He meets a woman, 'Melanie' (Bailey) on one such date that he can't get her

I’m not so sure Misadventures with a Book Boyfriend was really the book for me. I did like the idea of Oliver setting up an online service to bring Book Boyfirends to life. Loved that a man did the research into our favorite books and realized it was the way to a woman’s heart, and other parts. I just didn’t like that his hook up with a married woman, even though her marriage wasn’t typically a marriage, Victoria Blue is still an awesome writer and storyteller.

When I first heard the title of this book I was curious as to how it was going to be written. I mean there are several ways it could go, and when I started reading Oliver’s story, I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the way Victoria Blue decided to write this story!! Oliver is a successful fashion model who is aging and jobs are coming in less frequently now! Forced to think outside the box, he comes up with this crazy idea on how he can make money after hearing a group of women talking o ...more

The name of this misadventure is what really grabbed me, and Oliver's idea is a unique one. Changing careers and going out on a limb like that is great. I think his spunky neighbor was my favorite person, though. I had a hard time connecting with the characters and feeling invested in their relationships. The storyline itself was interesting and unique, and had a good flow. The writing was good, too. If there were half stars, sorry it would be a 3.5 for me, if I'm being totally honest.

Another great read in the Misadventures series. Oliver needs to bring in some money when his career as a model is coming to an end, but it is not until he overhears a bunch of housewives talking by the pool does he come up with his next line of work - a paid book boyfriend. Woman get to choose their fantasy man - alpha billionaire, firefighter, athlete, mobster or IT tech guy - Oliver can play them all. What he does not expect is to also find love with a client. What makes it worse is the connec ...more

I love the Misadventure books sooo much! And this one has to be my favourite so far. It was full of angst, romance, humour and so much more.

The characters were relatable in every which way to real life people; Oliver was low on cash with no job perspectives in sight, resorting to opening BBI (you’ll have to read it to see what that means!). Skye; power hungry, driven but extremely childish and annoying... there’s always a few power-driven people out there that you want to roll your eyes at. Bai

Anyone who has read a romance novel - from Austen to modern day - has secretly wished for a leading man to leap from the pages and sweep them off their feet. AKA...a Book Boyfriend. After a chance meeting at the pool, model Oliver Connely turns this idea into a business. Along the way, he makes new friends (I want more Jeanine!) and test his relationship with best friend Skye. And of course he finds the love of his life.

I love the Misadventures series for its brevity and consistent quality. Each book is written by a different author, retaining the author's general niche. These books are a nice way to be introduced to different authors as well as different types of romances. Victoria Blue was new to me but now I will look out for her. She did a wonderful job with characters. Her facility with dialogue and character-development was part

This book was a lot of fun wrapped up in a sexy and entertaining concept. Elliot is an out of work model who feels he is washed up at the age of 27 and knowing he has made bad financial decisions in his past he needs to find a side hustle just to pay the rent. While sitting around the pool and listening to the "moms" he comes up with an idea, he places a personal ad to be a Book Boyfriend.

Victoria has given us a a true romance novel. This book is well written and the characters are relocatable and easy to connect with. Can we say that we all need an Oliver Connelly in our lives. He is everything a woman wants he is swoon worthy.

this is by fare one of my favorites in this series. Oliver is hot, sexy and knows what he is doing when it comes to women. Oliver was the most sought after male until everything came crashing down. Now with the help of Bailey, Skye and Jannie, Oliver learns all he can and creates "Book Boyfriend Inc". Jannie tries to help Oliver, Skye is worried about the blow back, and Bailey is all Oliver can think about after their first date. So what could happen? What could go wrong?
