The protagonist is an insecure whiny little airhead who clings to her mother and embarrasses herself with her desperation for a boyfriend. The characters are flat and transparent at best, and coupled with the worn out plot makes for dull read. The sheer pettiness of the protagonist has left a bad taste in my mouth, so much so that I am deleting this book from my nook.

    Boyfriend From Hell was a fun read! It does feature a little darkness...Satan does make an appearance, after all. ;) But I enjoyed the story and getting to know all the characters.




    Megan Barnett has a pretty sweet life. She has an awesome mom, great best friends, and a hot new guy just joined her mathlete team. But things begin to change the day her mom decides she'd like to have a boyfriend. Wait. What? Megan doesn't even have a boyfriend. 




    So, as Megan's mom, Suze, embarks on her quest to get a date, Megan has to deal with her feelings about this. Particularly once she becomes suspicious of the man wanting to date her mom. Suze thinks he's great, but Megan thinks he just might be from Hell.




    I found Boyfriend From Hell very engaging, well written, with nicely developed characters. It was very engaging with its realistic portrayal of teenage life with art and the supernatural woven in. I liked how Megan grew over the course of the book. She realizes what's important and I appreciated that. I also enjoyed the snarky humor. The friendships in the story were well defined too. Y'all know I love a great supporting cast and this book has one! I LOVED Matt! I know...but I did.




    The mystery also kept me engaged. Overall, this was a very entertaining YA book.

    Boyfriend From Hell warrants a definite fours stars from me! E.

    Boyfriend From Hell warrants a definite fours stars from me!
    E. has an excellent writing style that keeps you engaged through out the whole book. He uses an excellent mixture of humor and drama to weave together a riveting tale.
    The paranormal aspect of the story starts off light. You get a hint of the other worldly and it slowly builds until the action packed conclusion. This book is a definite page turner, one that I couldn't put down.
    E's characters are wonderfully constructed and delightfully realistic. I loved that the main character, Megan, was intelligent and full of whit.
    Megan's relationship with her mother was one of my favorite aspects of the book. Their relationship is so endearing and spot on for that of a single mom and her teenage daughter.
    You feel their bond and the heart ache that comes when that bond wavers even the slightest bit.
    The story moved along quickly and there was never a dull moment. From Guy's first appearance to the shocking end events.
    I won't give anything away, but there is a definite "Oh my goodness" moment near the end. E. has crafted the twists in the plot perfectly!
    The only thing I have reservations about is Guy's part in Megan's life. As a character he is so great and has so much potential, yet we really did not see too much of him through out the story. I would love to have seen more of the budding romance between him and Megan and more on his background as well. However, I have a feeling he will be prominent in book two. So as far as Guy being used to set the stage for book two, I think it was well played. Certainly left me wanting to know more!
    Besides, this book was more about Megan overcoming her obstacles and saving those she loved. You certainly shouldn't be late to fight the devil because you are snogging in the hallway ^^
    Which by the way, I was happy to see that E. kept the romance to that befitting a fifteen year old. I am never too fond of books that have heated romance when the characters are supposedly young teens.
    I can not wait to read the sequel and upcoming books in this series!
    I would highly recommend this book to Young Adult readers who love light humor, romance and the paranormal!
