THE FILL-IN BOYFRIEND

My new contemporary out May 5, 2015 is The Fill-In Boyfriend.


When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend— two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party — three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

  5. I was getting ready for a trip a year or so ago and I came across The Distance Between Us. It looked like a fun read. Although I am in my late 20s, I enjoy a young adult read to clear my mind. I quickly read through it and all of the other books that you have wrote. I just love your style of writing and the way you instantly want to be the character in the book. It is easy to get wrapped up in the storyline and I find myself with a sense of bitter-sweetness as the book comes to a close. Your newest book the Fill in Boyfriend I read in 2 days! I just couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next one to come out. If you ever need a drafter reader let me know! lol

  6. I absolutely adored On The Fence, The Distance Between Us, and your newest The Fill-In Boyfriend. Your novels are so addicting I just could not put them down, (some I read twice). I finished each in three hours or less because my eyes could not leave the page. PLEASE write more novels because your stories are absolutely amazing and you are definitely one of my favorite writers! Your stories inspire my life and are the only ones that have expressed extreme emotion from me. They made me cry, laugh, smile, and fill with fury (I hate Spencer). Please, please, please write more so I can read them ASAP, thank you so much for writing extraordinary pieces of work!

  9. I just finished reading The Fill-In Boyfriend and I absolutely adored it! I can't remember the last time I was interested in reading, but after reading this I want to read more! Please tell me that there's going to be a sequel because the minute that is published I'm pulling out my wallet. I would also hope that you would consider making this book into a movie. I would go see it at least 10 times and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way. Thanks for getting me interested in reading again!!!

  23. I just finished reading The Fill In Boyfriend. It was such a great book I couldn't take my eyes off of it! I really hope you decide to write a sequel of some sort and/or make a movie because I would for sure read/watch it. Please consider it I would really appreciate it!!! Thank you

  24. While reading The Fill In Boyfriend I felt like I was in the Story. When something funny happened I would laugh or if something sad happened I would cry. When ever something happened between Gia and Hayden I would get goose bumps and that only happens if I'm reading amazing work. I also don't like reading so for a book to hold my interest and not make me want to take my eyes off of it that's incredible! So like asked before please consider writing a sequel and/or making a movie please.

  31. i Just finished your book The Fill-in Boyfriend. it is a phenomenal book. you are an outstanding author with such raw talent and a prodigious writing style. your book is genuinely relate-able. This book can teach someone a lesson or two. your novel callously showed me that I need to open up more and that revenge is immature. I will definitely use your lesson about being a better person and you really have to try your hardest. It took me one long road trip Georgia to Florida to finish this book. I read it twice and loved it just as much as the first time. Your books are hard to put down, so i usually decide to not put it down once i start. I really hope you do make a sequel because you left all us readers on a cliff hanger. I love how much work you put into this book and how you made everyone personalty intertwine. how you showed that even when you are perfect there is something missing. i pray that there is a sequel!!

  32. I got On the Fence for Christmas. I am a person who seeks to find good books that is clean but still has the romance, drama, and fun to it. So my mom found On the Fence and I read it in less than a day. I also read The Distance Between Us in less than a day. However since I was busy I finished the Fill in Boyfriend in two days. I love all of the books as you can tell and look forward to reading others.

  33. The Fill in Boyfriend is the best book. It is somewhat sad at the beginning but then it turns into a wonderful happy and lovely book. Bradley deserves himself for dumping Gia on her prom night.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Please, Ms. West! Everyone is begging for a sequel for their favorite books! The Fill-In Boyfriend is my favorite book ever! Im hoping to have a sequel that's about Nate and Bec, and a little of Gia and so called Fill-In Bradley. But not too little! I am also hoping that we're not stressing you out. Thank you!

  36. Just wanted to say (in agreement with all of the many comments above!) thank you for each of the books you have written. I found The Distance Between Us by chance, and oh how glad I am that I did! Thank you for fun, clean, well-written stories that leave me wishing they would never end. You are truly talented, and I will look forward to the next book!

  41. Hi, I'm a 13-years-old girl who read your book "The Fill-In Boyfriend." I really loved this book, I literally cried and laughed with it. It's a really good book, but, it left me with a lot of questions.


    Questions:


    *What was Gia and Hayden's plan to get Bec back?


    *How did Bec react when Nate arrived to her house?


    *Who was going to be Gia's roommate?


    *Are you planning to write a second book to "The Fill-In Boyfriend"?


    *Did Claire and/or Laney ever talk to Gia again?


    *What did Gia's parents think about Hayden?

    I really, really, really need you to answer these questions. I love this book. I felt so connected with this book. "The Fill-In Boyfriend" is my favorite book, but I feel like the end wasn't clear and it should have a second part.

  42. My name is Sarah Hicks and I would love to know if there was going to be another book on The Fill-In Boyfriend because you are now my favorite author and I want to know more about you and your work and if you can email me my email is snhicks1945@gmail.com and thank you for the awesome story and for being a great inspiration now I am thinking of becoming an author of my own books.
    Sincerely,

  56. I love this book! I just finished reading it like a few minutes ago. And I feel curious of the result of their "revenge" on Bec. I actually sacrificed a few hours of sleep due to my love for this book. And I don't mind at all! It was really a great roller coaster ride of emotions!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love this book! I just recently read pivot point and split second and this was just as amazing. I was pacing my room and smiling non-stop. I loved this book so much I really can't explain it. AHHHHHH!!! I have told all my friends to read it an I now think they are getting annoyed when I keep telling them about it. I was reading with the light of my alarm clock at about eleven o' clock when I finished and barely slept that night, I just couldn't stop thinking about this book. Evryone just needs to read it.

  58. I just want to say that I have been wanting to write books forever and this really showed me how amazing a book could really be. I am very hopeful that I could one day become a good a writer as Kasie West is.
