Mimi Jean has put a fresh and very original spin on the rags to riches trope and I loved it! I loved Rose! She’s a fighter and a survivor. I loved her backbone and fire. Girl power all the way.

Full review pending.
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Every time I read a book by this author, I can picture her sitting behind her computer, evilly laughing at the twists and turns she is inflicting on her readers. I sat down to enjoy this modern story of a princess who has been raised by evil relatives (this time grandparents) who make her cook and clean while they spend her fortune. In order to win her freedom, she must find the handsome prince to marry. And then, Mimi turns everything on its head and the story stops. It’s only the first half of

Basically a modern retelling of Cinderella–complete with gorgeous gown and a grand party–The Boyfriend Collector was classic Mimi Jean Pamfiloff: characters who were not at all as they seemed, interesting chemistry, and of course plot twists and secrets to keep us readers on edge. Sounds fun, right?

You’ve gotta love a book that is all about self-empowerment and girl power without being too in your face about it. And that’s what Th

Danger, betrayal, uncertainty and truly unique coming of age journey. This book has it all and then so much more....

What is Rose supposed to do when she finally realizes that the people she trusted her entire life have betrayed her in the worst possible way all in the name of money...... This emotionally thrilling, sexy fun and witty adventure is a must read for all!

If you are a fan of Mimi Jean' s books and are expecting red hot men and lots of sex like the Accidentally, King, and Mermen series then this book is not for you. If you are looking for sweet romance and happily ever after like the Happy Pants and even the Fugly series, take a pass as well. No vampire or librarians either. However, if you want to read a what seems to me like a modern Cinderella story, you have to read this new series. Rose Hale, heiress to the fortune left to her by her late aut ...more

This is the start to another great series that now leaves me wanting to know what will happen next. For this Cinderella type story, I was hooked from page one wanting to know and rooting for Rose to come out on top. I liked watching her come into her own as she started to figure things out now that she is no longer under her 'evil' grandparent's control. She became stronger as a character by the end of the book especially once she admitted and came to terms with her feelings for Bex, even when t ...more

Rose's life is like a modern day Cinderella tale with a twist. Her incredibly successful mother who was a bestselling author died while giving birth to her leaving Rose in the brutal care of her selfish grandparents. She is kept isolated her whole life, unloved and alone and forced to work as a maid at the family estate and to wear only hand me down clothing or work uniforms while her extended family enjoys her mother's vast wealth and hide the real details of the stipulations in her mother's wi ...more

Oh Mimi, you evil genius! Have me hooked again and wanting more. Rose is determined to be the hero of her own story. Plagued with the task of finding a suitable husband before her 21st birthday, she realizes it has to be done on her terms. "Just like the bachelorette....and have a lot more on the line than just my heart". There is really no easy way to describe Rose's story without spoilers, and unfortunately I'm not a spoiler type of person. If you must know about Rose and her story, you will h ...more

While this is a two parter, most everything is resolved so it's not much of a cliffhanger but with everything that happened in the story it really makes you excited for part 2 to come out. It's Cinderella meets The Bachelorette with a sprinkling of Fraser. Except Bex is way hotter the Fraser Crane and Rose's love life is WAAAYY more complicated than any of the Bachelorettes and more twisted than Cinderella's.

It's an easy read with alternating first person POV. It's angsty and messed up in all th

Mimi Jean Pamfiloff has an offbeat sense of humor that makes her books a whole lot of fun to read. Her characters intelligent, interesting and just a tad quirky. I wasn't sure what to expect from the Boyfriend Collector. I really loved Rose. She's basically a small child trying to make her way in an adult world because of the horrendous way she raised by her grandparents. Yet she matures with each experience, learning as she goes despite hooking up with some nefarious characters. As for Bex,

Interesting story but may make you uncomfortable if you are a mental health professional

I love Mimi Jean Pamfiloff and all her books! I just want to put that out there first. This one was also interesting and I read it in a day, but as a social worker I had a hard time with some of the plotlines. I do not want to add any spoilers, but the boundary crossing, age difference and the trauma involved made me a bit uncomfortable and it was hard for me to root for the romance. This could be just my per

The boyfriend collector

Mystery. That is one of the key things that keeps me coming back to Mimi Jean's books. The intrigue of each story captivates me and for me to no figure out what is going to happen is a rarity for me. Mimi Jean's fill that need in me for something that I won't figure out so easily and this book fits it to a T. I fell in the with Rose and desired for her to get justice. I don't like leaving spoilers so I won't. This book is complex, wonderful, and a great read. I look forwar

I have yet to read a book of Mimi' s that I didn't like but this one ranks near the top. I normally love books that lean towards the paranormal yet I was pulled into this book. I couldn't put it down. Although it's a romance, it wasn't sappy or sex filled. The innocence of Rose and Bex's stoic demeanor reel you in. I can't wait to discover the true story behind each of her "boyfriends."

What can I say that I haven't said before? You are absolutely brilliant! I kept waiting for this story to go sideways as you've done so many times in the past. Waiting. Waiting waiting. It didn't happen in this one, but it will happen in the next. I'm a huge fan! Looking forward to the next.

Another 5 star read from Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Mimi Jean never ceases to amaze me with her wicked mind and well plotted stories. This first book in a 2-part series was so fun to read with a great story line and good twists and turns throughout the book. You will definitely be wanting the 2nd book right away when you finish this one.
