He’s the total package.
Except …
Eric Miller isn’t looking for a long term relationship.  And he definitely isn’t thrilled when a friend signs him up for The Boyfriend Experience app behind his back. It’s not like he has a problem getting women on his own. But when he gets a notification that someone is in need of his . . . services, he’s intrigued enough to check out her profile and can’t resist the sexy, sassy little brunette who only wants him as a decoy for a family event.  
Evie Bennett needs a boyfriend, stat. Someone who can accompany her to her family reunion so she doesn't have to explain that she's been recently dumped.  Again. She’s perfectly happy being an independent woman, but what’s a girl to do when her new fake boyfriend starts to feel like the real deal?

They joined the short line in front of the register, and Eric glanced from the billboard listing all the fancy beverages, to Evie.  “What would you like?”

“I’ll just take a regular cup of coffee.”

“Come on, you can do better than that,” he teased.  “You don’t strike me as being that boring.”

She raised a brow, a glimmer of amusement dancing in her eyes.  “You’ve come to that conclusion in the two minutes of meeting me?”

“Am I wrong?” he challenged light-heartedly.

“No,” she admitted, a smile tugging at the corner of her very kissable mouth.  “I just don’t treat myself to a fancy cup of coffee very often. Normally, I’m too rushed in the morning to indulge myself.”

They took another step forward in line.  “Lucky for you, it’s my treat and I insist you indulge.”

She tipped her head, drawing his gaze to the soft tumble of hair falling over her shoulder and how the ends curled right at the upper swell of her breast.  “Shouldn’t I be paying for this, considering the circumstances?”

“Absolutely not,” he replied adamantly, forcibly keeping his gaze on her face instead of her chest.  “What boyfriend worth his salt would let his girl pay?”

“I haven’t hired you yet,” she reminded him cheekily.  

He grinned.  He wasn’t expecting Evie Bennett to be so impudent, and surprise, surprise, he was definitely enjoying their banter, and her.  “True. Which means I really need to step up my game and impress you.”  

And honestly, when was the last time he’d wanted to make such an effort with the opposite sex?  The answer to that eluded him, because truthfully, he couldn’t remember being so fascinated and attracted to a woman beyond her physical features.  Yet there was no denying that Evie’s feisty disposition drew him in and made him want to learn more about her. Which he needed to do anyways, if she was going to hire him.  And make no mistake, they weren’t parting ways until he’d sealed the deal, because she was in the market for a temporary boyfriend, and like his campy bio had promised, he aimed to please.

“What can I get for the two of you?” the barista asked, pulling Eric’s thoughts, and attention, to the girl waiting for their order.  

He glanced at Evie.  “Don’t disappoint me,” he said humorously, referencing the boring cup of coffee she’d mentioned.  

A cute, daring smile flitted across her mouth before she looked back at the barista.  “I’ll take a white chocolate mocha with an extra shot of espresso and whipped cream.”

Damn.  Was it crazy that he was totally turned on by the fact that she hadn’t ordered one of those ridiculous skinny, non-fat, sugar-free lattes that made a mockery of a designer coffee?  This was not a girl who’d opt for a salad if she was offered a burger or pizza, and thank God for that. His attraction to her just increased ten-fold.

Liza's Review:

Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde have once again made book magic with The Boyfriend Experience. I honestly wanted to start reading this book all over again as soon as I finished reading it the first time.

If readers have read Erika Wilde's Tall, Dark, and Sexy series of books, Eric Miller is friends with the Stone brothers in that series and was added to beta pool of boyfriends in the Boyfriend Experience App by the creator Dylan Stone as a bit of a joke. The fact that Dylan never told Eric only made it funnier when Eric had his first match with Evie Bennett. Eric really is such an upstanding guy, he really did plan to meet Evie and let her know he wasn't available...and then he met her in person and knew he couldn't let her go yet.

Evie is hands down one of the sweetest and nicest characters I've ever met. She has the biggest heart ever and loves helping others and tries to see the best in everyone else. As she had already told her family she was bringing her boyfriend Eric to the annual family reunion, she is on the hunt for a fake boyfriend thanks to discovering her ex is a cheating jerk. Luck is on her side when she selects Eric Miller for her temporary boyfriend. Partly because he has the same first name as her ex, but mostly because they have a connection from the very first moment they meet for coffee.

I loved Evie and Eric together! OMG they had amazing chemistry from the very beginning and they seemed to each accept the other from the beginning as well. While they were both attracted to each other immediately, it was like they both knew in the beginning to not expect more than just friendship going forward. Eric was honest about being a confirmed bachelor, and Evie really did just need someone to help her out of a jam. I loved seeing Evie and Eric both share more about their pasts the more time they spent together. I have to say I had major anger issues with some of what Evie shared and needed tissues when Eric shared some of his past. So many emotions pulled from me as I read this story!

Eric and Evie worked so well for me as a couple. Evie's family was so very welcoming and accepting of Eric and I loved Evie's immediate family. Her parents and her brother absolutely cracked me up. I loved every moment they appeared on the page. I loved seeing Eric and Evie grow even closer as they were away for her family reunion. Their chemistry only got stronger the more time they were together and when they finally made love, it steamed up my kindle screen. I totally could tell they had real feelings for each other, yet could also tell Eric had major reservations about relationships because of his past. I love when the hero pretty much has to be hit over the head to realize he is fighting what he truly wants in his life, and Eric went all in. However, he also knew how to go big or go home to make things right with Evie. 

The Boyfriend Experience was such an amazing romance filled with love, family, laughter, and tears. I loved every single moment of this story and hope we get more books from Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde around the Boyfriend Experience App. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves contemporary romances.
