The Backup Boyfriend (The Boyfriend Chronicles #1)



Professionally, Dr. Alec Johnson has almost reached his goals. As this year’s recipient of a humanitarian award with his ex, Dr. Tyler Hall, Alec’s work with the homeless is about to be recognized. Unfortunately, his personal life sucks because now he has to attend several events alongside Tyler—with his ex’s new boyfriend in tow. In an attempt to lift his mood and break out of his rut, Alec purchases a motorcycle he has no idea how to start.

Dylan Booth doesn’t have time for Dr. Clueless and his fickle 1964 Harley, but the cocky mechanic can’t say no to the request for help. Having spent his teen years on the streets, and losing his best friend to HIV, Dylan decides teaching the do-gooder how to ride is the least he can do. But watching Alec flounder in his ex’s company throws Dylan into protector mode, and the confirmed hetero introduces himself as Alec’s new boyfriend.

The ex suspects Dylan is lying.

Alec claims Dylan’s plan is insane.

And Dylan’s not sure he can fake being gay.

But he’s a master bullshitter, and the phony PDA soon turns ultra-hot. Alec can’t afford to get attached, and Dylan’s learned everyone eventually leaves. Unfortunately, playing the backup boyfriend is starting to feel way too real…

5 don’t label me stars

This book was awesome! Amazing! I loved it! 

I did not view this book as GFY, AT ALL. This book was def a friends turn into lovers book don’t get me wrong. But isn’t GFY just another label????? To me love is love, and I don’t give a shit who you are. If you love and are loved you are SIMPLY BLESSED.

One day I was having a convo with an EX friend, and we were talking about being gay vs bi vs straight. And honestly she said the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard in my life!

“Please, who cares… he’s half gay…”

And  honestly I sat back and thought that she is the stupidest person I have ever had a conversation with! My jaw dropped and I blinked several times cause seriously! Was she serious???? It’s okay to be “fully” gay or “fully” straight but please no half steppin? After reading this book I have a quote for my ex-friend. Maybe she will read this and think yah that was pretty stupid of me (one can only hope)

” What does that even mean?” Agitated, Dylan strode a few steps away before turning to pace back. “Fifty percent gay? Fifty percent straight? Can I be ninety percent of one? Ten percent of the other? I’m not part this or part that. I’m just me.” He came to a halt in front of Alec. ” A hundred percent whole me.” 

AMEN! A round of a applause. Seriously! I broke out into goosebumps, took a pic of said quote with phone, texted it to my girls and was like BAM. And we laughed and applauded cause really doesn’t that just say it all???? There is no half steppin in love!

Every book I read teaches me another lesson in life. Truly. And if it doesn’t teach you as the reader a lesson, you aren’t REALLY READING the book.




Lesson learned! Only products should have labels.. not people and definitely not love!


Alec and Dylan~ Loved it. Loved their friendship.  Loved the road travelled to get there.


Loved Dylan’s assholeishness, not a word I know, but it works for me.

Alec’s sarcasm, his witt, his wiki mind!

The sex was HOTT! The 1st kiss, this kissing slut approved of!

Both Dylan and Alec have demons to work through, and even if not fixed in the end they have each other.

Truly looking forward to the next book in this series.
