#BookReview: The Boyfriend Bracket by @KateEvangelista @SwoonReads




About the Book:

Stella has had a hopeless crush on Will, her older brother's best friend FOREVER, but now that Cam and Will have graduated and are going off to college, this year is her chance to really strike out on her own. Without her overprotective brother and his sidekick around to distract her, she can focus on having all the typical high school experiences that she's always dreamed of—starting with finding a boyfriend! With the help of her best friend Franklin, she comes up with the perfect plan to have a boyfriend by Christmas: The Boyfriend Bracket.

Or it seems like the perfect plan...right up until Will starts showing up again. How is she supposed to find the perfect boyfriend when none of her dates measure up to the one boy she can never have?

Notes and Opinions: I won a copy of this book a while ago and just got around to reading it and now I really need to check out this author's other books because this one was beyond amazing!!  This one reminded me of the Kissing Booth without all the fighting and well all the sex.  It was a lighter version that for me was much better. There was laughs and feels and just a great story all around.

I really loved Stella's BFF who don't worry is not the love interest in this one. However, I would love him to get his own glorious story!! This is about Stella and her life. It starts off with her brother graduating and Stella hoping that this will be the answer to her prayers because she hasn't been able to date anyone without her brother getting in the way and scaring people off.  Little does she know that it just won't be that easy.

Stella's crush on her brothers best friend was great! I loved that everyone was a little older and that everyone seemed very real. I could see these people existing in real life with the issues that they had and I loved the diversity of the characters as well.  It would have been great to have some of the food recipes that are mentioned in the back of the book also.

The story itself was very fast paced and I finished this one I think in just under 3 hours or just over. It was just that good.  One of my favorite things about this one was the boyfriend bracket as well as all the fashions that Stella made!  I wish this would have gone a little more into the future so we could have seen what was going with these characters. But I could also see another book in this story's future where everyone is in college.  It would be a great book to transition over to New Adult.

This is hands down one of my fav books of 2018! 


Go Into This One Knowing: If you are looking for a book with all the feels, friends, fashion, and first loves then this is a book I totally recommend.

I totally think Franklin could carry his own book too.
