Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall

In Alexis Hall‘s Boyfriend Material, Luc O’Donnell is in desperate need of a boyfriend. Not just any boyfriend, a fake one whose picture would be right next to the word ‘perfect’ if it were in the dictionary.

Luc needs to keep a squeaky clean image now that his rock star father is trying to make a come back. He’s never met the man, but it’s his success that is pulling Luc back into the spotlight with him despite his parents having split twenty years ago.

Oliver Blackwood could fit the bill. He’s a vegetarian barrister who might as well be allergic to the word ‘scandal’ but the two have nothing in common. Despite this, Oliver strikes up a deal with Luc.

They both need a date to a big event and the publicity of a fake relationship could be good for both of them. It’s a win-win. No harm, no foul, no danger of catching feelings. Or so they think but fake dating isn’t that different from real dating. It still involves spending time together and getting to know one another.

Luc and Oliver may just find they may have more in common then they thought. Maybe just enough to fall in love.

Boyfriend Material is available now in print, audio, and e-book format.
