When three women figure out they’re being duped by the same guy, they never expect to form a new group of friends that will support and defend each other no matter what. Samiah Brooks is grateful to have new friends, Taylor and London--with her busy life, she rarely has time to date, let alone cultivate new friendships. She works for a successful tech firm and is a total asset to the company in Austin, but she has dreams of developing her own app. Together with Taylor and London, Samiah decides to spend the next 6 months working on herself instead of looking for a significant other. With work going well, Samiah feels now is the time to also work on her app--which, coincidentally, is an app that helps people find new friends and will curate experiences for them to enjoy together--who needs to find a man anyway?
That’s until Daniel Collins starts working at her company. He’s handsome, hardworking, and an all-around great guy. And as they spend more time together, both on a lucrative new project at work and outside of the office, Samiah thinks she’s found the perfect guy. . . except Daniel’s keeping a secret that could change everything.
THE BOYFRIEND PROJECT by Farrah Rochon is a cute workplace contemporary romance. The set up for this book is perfect--three women figuring out they’re being catfished by the same guy end up becoming best friends. The female friendship is what holds this book together, and it’s fun to watch tech developer Samiah, pediatric surgeon London, and personal trainer Taylor work on themselves and their new friendships. Samiah’s workplace romance with Daniel is intriguing, even though readers are privy to Daniel’s secret and true intentions for employment at Samiah’s company. The conversations Samiah and Daniel have about being minorities in the overwhelmingly white tech sphere are poignant and important, and it’s a powerful connection for them both. And although Daniel does plan a grand gesture to apologize to Samiah, the way it pans out didn’t have the swoon-worthy impact grand gestures generally have in contemporary romance. Austin is a great backdrop for this novel, and the mentions of various parts of the city and its surrounding areas are showcased wonderfully. Though some of the tech jargon and work talk bogged down the story at times, THE BOYFRIEND PROJECT is a delightful romance by an author to watch.
