    4. 4.5 out of 5I’ve been reading a number of tense emotional reads lately, and enjoying most of them immensely. But sometimes I’m just in a mood for light and fluffy and this book fit the bill just wonderfully well.Kate is quite the uptight focused lawyer who had her life all planned out. She came from nothing and rose above her rather sad childhood to become quite a success. But when the book opens, she’s been dumped by her fellow lawyer boyfriend. He’s a wimp and she’s actually much bet [...]

    5. Her Backup Boyfriend was a pleasant surprise. It was a little slow to start, but I ended up enjoying the book. Kate is working toward a promotion to junior partner at her law firm. She is single and works all the time. Her boss implies that having a significant other will go a long way toward impressing the board. When he neighbor's nephew offers to play her boyfriend for a couple of months in exchange for law work for his sister, she reluctantly agrees.The romance between Dominic and Kate was s [...]

    6. There are times when I just need a quick and easy romance, and while I had hoped that this book would fit that bill, it didn't quite make that for me.The first half of the book starts out rather slow, and I really had a hard time caring about the characters at all. Things start to pick up in the second half of the book, but by that point the romance was half ruined for me. I understood wanting to be cautious, but too much caution was not a good thing for this romance. I did like the eventual che [...]

    7. 3.7 starsAfter my recent bad book woes, I was in desperate need of something simple and sweet and that’s exactly what I got with Her Backup Boyfriend. The feels it gave me were just an added bonus.I really identified with Kate’s social awkwardness and loved how she slowly but surely came out of her shell and gained confidence as the story progressed. Dominic was refreshingly free of douche syndrome and an honest to god gentleman so of course I loved him from the onset. The romance was a warm [...]

    9. Loved! This! Book! It's a great fake boyfriend story that kept me mesmerized. This author has a wonderful fluid writing style that really appeals to me. The characters are well developed and intriguing. Definitely one for the must read list!Kate is getting pressure at work to settle down.

    10. Typical, short and cute, but I loved how the story is handled. I especially liked Dominique, he was very understanding and quietly supportive. I'd have liked Kate to be a little bit more special though.

    11. This was a good book. Girl loses guy, possible promotion in danger, Backup Boyfriend, life happens, and HEA. The things I like about this book are how determined Kate is. She is good at what she does and is a hard worker. She knows what she wants in life, and is going for it. Dominic cares very much for his family, and isn't afraid to show it. They are good together, once they get their priorities straight.The thing I didn't like is that there wasn't enough time with Dom's family. I was hoping f [...]
