Product Description

According to the law of attraction, women and men can’t be friends.

Contrary to this myth, my friendship with Coriander Phillips does not rest on unrequited love or un-actualized lust. We’ve been inseparable since the day I pulled one of her pigtails and she punched me in the gut.
She’s hilarious, fun to hang out with. Together, we’re like peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and meatballs, wings and beer. A match made in heaven.
She’s the bomb.
Did I mention she’s smokin’ hot? I’ve checked her out…maybe once or twice. Hey, I’m a guy.
Seriously, no awkwardness, no secret yearning for our relationship to escalate beyond the purely platonic. I’m the boy friend—the loyal shoulder she cries on, the dispenser of coffee, sympathy, hugs, advice, and affection with no expectations.
Until the invisible line between friends and lovers became blurry.
Now I want more. I want her.
All I have to do is convince her we can be more than friends.
Right?
If only it were that easy.

The Boyfriend is a ‘friends to lovers’/contemporary romance from Mika Jolie. I love everything that Ms. Jolie has written and this book is no exception. I actually think this is her best book yet.
Dean Marcello and Coriander Phillips met 20 years ago while they were both in elementary school. Cori had mistaken Dean as a schoolyard bully and had come to her friend’s rescue, by punching Dean in the stomach. She didn’t know that Dean was her friend’s brother. Dean then pulled her hair and so this began a friendship that has spanned the years and stood the test of time.
Dean is a charming know-it-all and a good friend to Cori. But he’s also a bit of a player. He’s a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy and he’s happy with the way things are- he won't do sleep-overs, he doesn’t date or do relationships and he certainly isn’t interested in a wife or children.
Cori, on the other hand has realised that her biological clock is ticking quite loudly and she really wants the whole fairy-tale package- the white picket fence, her loving Prince Charming/ husband and bouncing bundle of joy. She definitely wants her HEA and wont’ be talked out of it.
When Cori starts to put her plans into motion and mentions internet dating sites to Dean, something changes and Dean begins feel things he can’t quite explain, and then to see things in a new light. Will Cori and Dean ever be on the same page? Will Dean come to appreciate what has been sitting in front of him this whole time and been so obvious to everyone else? Can they ever be more than just friends? If they cross that line, will their friendship be ruined forever? Will the y risk it all for a chance at love?
This isn’t your typical ‘friends to lovers’ story- it is Ms.

Dean Morello and Coriander Phillips have been friends for twenty years. Friends ever since their very first meeting. A chance meeting in the school playground when she punched him after he pulled her hair. They are the best of friends and have been inseparable all this time. She is the Ying to his Yang. He his her boy friend. Not to be mistaken with boyfriend. She needs advice, no problem he is there. She needs a shoulder to cry on he’s her man. She needs a hug, no problem. She is one of the guys, she is fun, loving, loyal, a free spirit, heart of gold and smoking hot but they are just friends, a purely platonic relationship. Until it’s not.

Dean is having trouble with what he feels. Feelings he has never felt before. Feelings that are as strange as they are complicated and conflicting. He is now seeing one of his best friends is a different light. Dean finds himself thinking about more than a best friend should. He wants Coriander as more than the boy friend, he wants to be the boyfriend. He only has one problem he has to show her they can be more than friends.

As the book says “According to the law of attraction, women and men can’t be friends”.

Will Dean reconcile his feelings in time? Will Dean break her heart? Will Dean lose the best thing he never knew he wanted? Will he confess all before it is too late? Is Coriander willing to step over the proverbial line from best friends to lovers?

I really enjoyed this story. It was told by the male point of view in a very unique and clever way. I found myself constantly laughing at the things he said, thought and did, typical man stud. There were however a few moments when I wanted to slap him into gear. If you are looking for a little comedic romance then no need to look any further. Mika is a very clever story teller. This is definitely a hit, I can’t wait to read more of her work.

Men and Women can’t be friends, at least that what everyone says. But Coriander Phillips and Dean Morello are best friends and have been since Dean pulled Cori’s pigtail in the playground and Cori punched him in the gut twenty years ago. Dean and Cori are inseparable, they have been through lots together, Cori is his Ying to his Yang. Everyone around these two can see that they have chemistry that is off the charts and they are waiting for Cori and Dean to open their eyes and see it too. Cori and Dean don’t want to risk losing their friendship if they ever cross the line to something more, it’s too important to both of them. If you love a friends to lover’s story then The Boy Friend won’t let you down.
I loved this story and I loved it even more because for once we are told the story from the male point of view. This story is about friendship, family and love. The way Mika Jolie has you connecting with the characters goes to show how good and author she really is. I laughed out loud and had tears in my eye’s while reading but I can honestly say that I have never said “Men are so stupid” as many times as I did while reading this one and I felt like I needed to jump into my IPad to smack Dean over the head!
This is the second book I have read from Mika Jolie and it won’t be the last because she is definitely on my one click list.

I must say, I really enjoy this author's work. This book was told from the male character's point of view, almost like he was talking personally to you, and I really enjoyed it. I felt like I was having a conversation with him but without me saying a word.
I loved Dean and Coriander together, and I get a feeling there may be more books to follow, namely Dean's sister and one of his best mates. I really hope there will be more because I think Dean's sister, Kate, and Lucas would have a great story to tell.
