This was a really fun read. I really liked the protagonist. She is smart and a little nerdy. I was looking for a cute light read and this was the perfect book for that. ( )

The story is about Audrey McCarthy, a teen girl who is very good in programming, but after building an app for a contest she sees her app descending in the user app charts and her chances of winning dwindling. She decides to make a modification (for the worse). Her boyfriend 2.0 app is designed for girls who want the boy of their dreams to fall in love with them (so just forget compatibility, we’ll just go for hot looks only). I’m not revealing how she makes this happen with her app but it is all a bit farfetched and poses some questions to say the least. I think she must be a good writer, and it was an original concept to start with but I didn’t buy the second half, she just took this too far there. ( )

Quick & Dirty: A charming contemporary romance that I really enjoyed. It is filled with adorable romance, fun characters, and lots of drama!

Opening Sentence: It was lunchtime in the social battleground known as Harrison’s upperclassman cafeteria, and I was staring at Aidan Bailey.

The Review:

Audrey McCarthy is a senior at Harrison high school. She was once very popular and confident, but that all changed when her father was killed in a terrible accident. After the accident she became awkward and all of her so-called friends abandoned her for better prospects. Now her once best friend, Blake is the “Queen B” at school and she isn’t a very nice person, especially with how she treats Audrey. Audrey has managed to make a new group of friends with the smart kids, but she can’t wait to start her life over in college. The only problem is that college is very expensive and paying for it is going to be a problem. Then an answer comes in the form of a competition to create an app.

Public Corporation is a huge company that sells all sorts of tech savvy things like phones, computers and things like that. They have decided to hold a competition where they will give $200,000 to the one person that comes up with the most popular app. Audrey has major computer skills so creating the app is no problem, but coming up with a unique idea is not as easy. Then all of the sudden it hits her, she should create a boyfriend app. She puts together a complex survey that will match you with someone you are compatible with. At first the app does amazing, but the competition is very competitive and Audrey will have to do more if she wants to win!

Audrey was a likeable character that was easy to connect with. Her tragic past has shaped her into a person she doesn’t want to be and she feels the only way to change is to get away. She planned to wait until college to break out of her shell, but the competition forces her to do it earlier. I loved watching her grow into a stronger person. She still struggles with many things, but at least she is tiring to do better. In many ways I can relate to Audrey because I was also awkward in high school. I wasn’t really made of fun of like Audrey is, but I felt out of place and lonely at times. I imagine that most high school girls have felt like this at one point or another so it is something that makes Audrey an easy character to understand. There were a few times that her voice got on my nerves because she would start to pity herself, but for the most part I really loved her character.

If you have read many of my reviews you will know that the boys tend to be my favorite part of a story and Aidan was no exception to this. He is this super shy guy that is very intelligent, but he is also really good looking. He tends to be awkward around people he doesn’t know, and that has made him kind of an outcast at Harrison High. His relationship with Audrey is so sweet and I loved watching them try to figure things out. It’s pretty obvious that they like each other, but neither one of them want to ruin their friendship so they haven’t ever done anything about it. I have always been a sucker for best friend romances and theirs was done really well. Aidan is a great book boyfriend and he was very easy to swoon over!

The Boyfriend App was an adorable and unique contemporary romance that totally took me by surprise. This book has actually been sitting on my shelf for quite a while now, but after reading the synopsis for the first time I just didn’t really want to pick it up. But I was feeling in the mood for a contemporary read and I saw this one and thought I would give it a try. I am so glad that I did, it was way better then I was expecting. There were a few things that bugged me, but overall this was an extremely entertaining story. I loved the whole nerdy atmosphere that Sise created with the characters; it made this go from an average contemporary to something unique. The romance was so cute and really well done. The plot was slightly predictable, but still interesting enough to keep me hooked. But there were a few flaws, mostly in the villain of the story. I just thought that the whole mean girl thing was overdone and it started to annoy me. The only other thing that I would have liked was to maybe have had just a tad bit more romantic moments. I loved the ones that were in the book, but I would have liked to have seen just a few more. Even though it had a few flaws I thought that this was a great read and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a fun, cute contemporary romance!

Notable Scene:

And then I had it. I knew what the simple, sweet idea was. I knew what my MIT-winning app would be. Everyone in the world would want it. It would make my mom and me millionaires. I’d be on talk shows with Mark Zuckerberg. I’d have the universe in the palm of my hand.

Everything that went wrong would be right again.

Introducing: the Boyfriend App.

Get the app. Get the guy. It would work—even for me. It had to.

FTC Advisory: HarperTeen provided me with a copy of The Boyfriend App. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. ( )

The boyfriend app

I would like tho thank the author for giving the chance to read such a piece of work.
It a book which will refresh your mind from the abundant boy meets girl novels
here the girl is one that leads the story and who is also very talented and brave with a scene of right and wrong
this book gives a detail of ever scene,so we can exactly see what is happening around and is also quite humorous
overall I would like to give a 4/5
regards
sunakshi
p.s. Keep writing
