Overview

This sexy, funny new novel asks: Can a woman find a modern-day Mr. Darcy in Daytona Beach?

At thirty, Grace O'Bryan has dated every loser in Daytona Beach. After the ultimate date-from-hell, Grace decides to turn her dwindling book club into a Boyfriend of the Month Club, where women can discuss the eligible men in their community. Where are the real life twenty-first century versions of literary heroes such as Heathcliff and Mr. Darcy?

Could it be successful and handsome Brandon Farrell, who is willing to overlook his disastrous first date with Grace and offers financial help for her parents' failing Florida gift shop? Or maybe sexy dentist Joe Rosenblum, who's great with a smile but not so great at commitment? Unfortunately, like books, men cannot always be judged by their covers...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Grace O'Bryan has not had good luck with men, so she and three book club friends decide to form a boyfriend club to review the bachelors of Daytona Beach, Fla. Soon Grace finds herself in the difficult position of managing two men: Brandon Farrell, a wealthy businessman, and Dr. Joe Rosenblum, a bighearted dentist. Could one of them be her Mr. Darcy? Though some of the ridiculous situations strain credibility (as when Grace chips her tooth while unwrapping a tampon), her dedication to her warm Cuban-Irish family and their struggling tourist shop is earnest and charming. Geraci (Bunco Babes Tell All) fills the fluffy but enjoyable story with literary references, and her leading lady is endearingly flawed. Romance readers will revel in the Austen-perfect happy ending and the warm friendship among members of the club. (Dec.)

    This is an amusing chick lit contemporary romance

    In Daytona Beach, after the date from hell, thirtyish Grace O'Bryan vows to make a change when it comes to stepping out. She comes up with a novel idea by converting the book club she belongs to into The Boyfriend of the Month Club. Like they did with books, she and her friends will evaluate the males they date; sharing their thoughts before shelving their latest.

    Grace begins dating a couple of hunks who her club mates rate as desirable and most eligible bachelors. Brandon Farrell knows their first date stunk, but still wants a second date and is willing to save her pare nt's financially strapped gift shop. Then there is the dentist who swore he could make her smile whiter and chipped tooth cuter. Finally her former boyfriend Joe, just Joe, who still wants Grace, but he failed to score very well when measured against the Mr. Darcy meter.

    This is an amusing chick lit contemporary romance starring a likable lead female and a strong support cast especially her Cuban-Irish family, the club members, and her dates. Although the humor overwhelms the story line as the laughs keep coming while the plot decelerates, readers will want to join the antics of the members of The Boyfriend of the Month Club who measure dates against Mr. Darcy.

    an average chick lit novel

    "The Boyfriend of The Month Club" is an average chick lit novel. I was looking forward to reading this book, so I am very sad to say that I was bored by it. All the main characters are very well developed, relatable, and charming. The premise is good. Yet, I could never quite get into the story. It never drew me in. The whole novel felt a bit ambiguous. I kept waiting for that clincher, which would make the entire book an incredible 5 star read, but it never came.

    The heroine, Grace, is surrounded by a female posse, quirky family, and slew of bad dates. She and her friends want to turn their book club into a boyfriend club, reviewing men instead of novels. Grace also can't seem to get rid of the dead weight of boyfriends past, present, and future. Then there is the hopelessly charming Joe, who is quite possibly the world's most perfect man. Here's where I start to have issues with this plot. Is it a boyfriend-bashing, us-girls-stick-together chick lit? Or is it a man-of-my-dreams, hard-to get, fall-head-over-heals chick lit? "The Boyfriend of the Month Club" can't quite decide. I don't think Grace could decide either. She is half-heartedly one way, then the other. I kept wishing that she would just stand up for herself.

    I did love that Grace was a Latino heroine. Her ethnicity shined brightly. It flavored the story, rather than flashed itself for the sake of calling itself a Latino chick lit story. Brilliant job, Maria Geraci! Well done! And I have to give a show out to Joe. He was a fabulous to-be-desired hottie. I wanted to date Joe.

    Conclusion:
    I am overall disappointed in "The Boyfriend of the Month Club" because I had such high hopes for it. However, it was a fun 3 star chick lit read. Not too deep and not too fluffy, it would make for a good book club read. Plus the irony of the title would be hilarious. I look forward to what else Maria Geraci has to offer.
