If you’re looking for a fun, flirty, smexy read with a lot of heart, minimal drama and some great characters thrown into the mix, then this one is a must read. I was just going to take a peek at the first chapter or so...yeah, about 2 hrs later and I’m here writing up a review because I couldn’t put it down (I should have because of that #workthing...but) and really wish there were more words to read.

This is my first review by both Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde together! I appreciate the ARC & have been looking forward to reading this since signing up!

Evie's relationship, or lack of, is the talk of the salon. Her two-timing asshole of an ex, was the worst. After such bad experience in the dating department, she is lost. So her good friends set her up, as in on an app. Temporary boyfriend for hire..sounds about right, nothing can go wrong at her family-reunion now!

5 star review The Boyfriend Experience (The Boyfriend Experience #1) by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

Eric Miller isn’t looking for a long term relationship, in fact he doesn’t believe in them at all thanks to his past. He is a firm believer in the love them and leave them philosophy.

Evie Bennett is in dire need of a boyfriend to accompany her to her family reunion. Evie is a feisty and independent woman who I loved. She just cannot stand the thought of attending the reunion on her own after sh

I enjoyed each book in the Tall, Dark and Sexy series written solely by Erika Wilke. Each one is a standalone, but even better when they are read together, especially when leading into this new series.  The final book in the Tall, Dark and Sexy series ended with Dylan (the inventor of the Boyfriend Experience app) adding Eric Miller to the beta pool, unbeknownst to Eric himself, thus kicking off this fantastic book. Again, you don't need to read the other books, but why not because they are also ...more
Dani (Dani Reviews Things & Love in a time of Feminism)
I’m a big fan of the fake relationship trope, so I jumped at the chance to read The Boyfriend Experience. The story centres around Evie and Eric, the former needing a boyfriend to accompany her to a family reunion so as to ward off pitying looks from her family after a recent breakup.

This was a very light-touch romance, perfect for a mental diversion. While heavy topics were introduced, including bullying and the loss of family, it didn’t sink down into the darker feelings too much. I particular

Where do I start and what can I say about this amazing read, it may have been a quick read but it certainly wasn’t lacking in plot or adorable characters. One of the things I loved most about this book was the authors wernt afraid to give us characters that were quirky and that had hang ups and for me that made them feel real somehow.
Eric Miller doesn’t do long term relationships he is a love them and leave them type of guy, well that was until he met Evie Bennett.

Eric Miller is a man who doesn't do relationships. Things from his past have made him a believer that relationships don't work. Evie Bennett is an independent woman who always picks the wrong guy, as proven once again by her cheating ex-boyfriend.

Evie is in a bind. She has a family reunion coming up. If she goes alone, she will have to contend with pity glances and sarcastic remarks from her cousin, who just happens to be engaged to one of Evie's ex-boyfriends. Her co-workers suggest she check o

I love a good fake boyfriend story and this was so good.
Eric and Evie had so much chemistry from the beginning of this book you just knew when they ended up together it would be hot and explosive. They were both people that you just felt like was easy to connect with and they had so much humor and love to share.

I always feel like the characters I read about is real people and that I know them. Eric and Evie is someone I would no doubt feel comfortable with and the would always lift t

I loved this book that was cute, fun, sweet and steamy. I thought Evie and Eric ere perfect together. These two generated so many sparks. Evie was a character that was easy to connect with. Spunky and sweet, she seemed like a close friend, or the friend you always wanted to have. Eric was a charming, commitment shy and had some heavy baggage. It did not take long for me to be 100% in this couple's corner. A swoon worthy romance that will make you just feel happy. I thought it was fantastic! This ...more

Eric's friends sign him up for an app called The Boyfriend Experience without letting him know. He's not looking for a long term relationship.
When Evie sees his profile on the app, fills out the questions and waits to see who will be chosen. She needs a date for a family event.
What follows is a fun read, full of sexy times and lots of adventures. I really enjoyed this book by Ms. Wilde and Ms. Phillips and I highly recommend it.

Get ready for some electricity. Whenever Phillips and Wilde join forces, sparks fly and hearts melt. Add in a hint of a laugh track and you have romance gold. The Boyfriend Experience sets the gold standard. Eric and Evie are a temptation that is not to be missed. Don't stand too close to the fire or you might get burned.

Woo! For a little while there I had to fan myself! I loved the characters even with their hang ups. I loved the supporting cast with all of their quirks and banter. The concept might not be unique, but it was done in a way I hadn't read before. I truly enjoyed reading it.

When Eric's friend signs him up for the Boyfriend Experience app without telling him, Eric's first response is to blow it off. When he gets a notification that someone wants to hire him, he figures he'll tell the lady it was all a mistake and that will be that. When he meets Evie Bennet for the first time, sparks fly. Eric has been hurt enough by life to believe avoiding long-term relationships are the best way forward. Evie has lost her confidence in herself and her judgement after two bad boyf ...more

Evie Bennett owns a hair salon with two of her best friends and she's a very independent and feisty woman. Evie does not want to be the talk of the family reunion that is coming up. In order to save face, she takes her friend's advice and checks out the new dating app that her friend's brother-in-law is developing. The app will allow her to hire a boyfriend for the four days she needs one.

What a great book!! This is my first experience with reading this author duo of Carly and Erika, but boy and I glad that I did!!

Evie is the kind of girl that you just KNOW you would absolutely love. She is real, sweet, but also has a backbone. Poor girl definitely had her share of people treating her like trash, but she just bounces back. The latest one being where her boyfriend ended up cheating on her and she does not want her family to pity her at their get together. She does not c

I'm smitten with Eric!!! OMG this book was so much fun and really hot and amazing. I very much enjoyed the journey between Eric and Evie, it was fun, magical, heartbreaking at times and certainly hot and steamy. From the moment they met until the end, Eric had my heart, he's led a life with his heart closed to the possibility of true love, and with one dare from his friends to try the Boyfriend Experience app his friend developed, it was inevitable to keep his heart locked up tight. Evie was the ...more

I have read books by both authors before and really liked them, so I was excited to see what they would bring on paper together. The blurb made me expect a funny and easy book and I got exactly that. I loved how sassy Evie was despite what she experienced with her family and men before and how she was still able to give back and trust again. I loved to see how she slowly opened up again and developed a stronger character than she was before.

Everything I expected from this writing duo and more! Evie is tired of being the one that is pitted at family reunions. Since her ex chose her cousin over her and her most recent ex cheated as well, she just wants to get through the weekend reunion with someone she can count on. Hiring a boyfriend would be so much easier than explaining what happened again. The Boyfriend Experience promises just that. Eric fits the bill perfectly since his first name is the same as her most recent ex and his sen ...more

I LOVED THIS BOOK! This was my first book by these authors, but it will not be my last! I can not wait to get my hands on the next book in this series.

Evie has had her heart broken and since she has decided not to get involved with another guy for the foreseeable future she decided to rent a boyfriend for her upcoming family reunion. However, she doesn't expect to fall for her fake boyfriend which creates a little trouble.

Eric has prided himself on being a no relationship guy. No strings attach

This story features Eric and Evie. I can’t imagine what Eric has been through. It’s so tragic. I understand his logic in the way he’s living his life but at the same time, it’s not completely his choice to make. Eric is an AMAZING boyfriend! He’s attentive in ALL ways, chivalrous, loves PDAs and is free with honest compliments. Oh, and he’s pretty amazing in bed too. Very close to perfection! Evie is pretty great too. I think I had her pegged as quiet and shy but she’s neither of those things. S ...more
