Evie Bennett needs a boyfriend, stat. Someone who can accompany her to her family reunion so she doesn't have to explain that she's been recently dumped.  Again.  She's perfectly happy being an independent woman, but what's a girl to do when her new fake boyfriend starts to feel like the real deal?

When Evie needs a date for the weekend for a family reunion she decides to try a new app. She gets a few matches but really feels connected to Eric. Eric’s friend created the app and uploaded a profile without Eric’s knowledge. His friends date him to follow through and go on a date with Evie. Super sweet and fun romance. Both of the characters had their hangups and I enjoyed seeing them work their way through. Sexy with a lot of chemistry. Great writing as always from Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. An enjoyable read.

Eric Miller isn’t looking for a long term relationship, in fact he doesn’t believe in them at all thanks to his past. He is a firm believer in the love them and leave them philosophy. Evie Bennett is in dire need of a boyfriend to accompany her to her family reunion. Evie is a feisty and independent woman who I loved. She just cannot stand the thought of attending the reunion on her own after she is dumped by her boyfriend. Evie’s co workers suggest she use a new app called The Boyfriend Experience and she completes the questions and waits to see the choices she is given. Eric has no idea that a friend has signed him up to The Boyfriend Experience app and is far from happy when he finds out. However when Evie chooses Eric’s profile he is intrigued and decides not to dismiss it out of hand. This was a fun read, well written with the writing is so seamless that I have no idea where one author finished and the other took over. The characters are great and the chemistry between Eric and Evie was scorching; not to mention the secondary characters were awesome and I hope to read more about them in the future. I do believe that Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde has another winning series on their hands.

The Boyfriend Experience shows how the loss of a loved one can have a profound effect on those left behind. Not only is there a gap where that person used to be but it can also create a divide between those who are supposed to support each other through such a difficult time. There is no time limit to grief and everyone deals with it differently but allowing it to rule your life without letting yourself express your emotions in a healthy fashion only leads to additional heartache. Evie is a compassionate, independent woman with a terrible taste in men. Having been cheated on twice she needs a buffer at her annual family reunion, especially as her hateful cousin tries to belittle Evie every chance she gets. Not trusting her own judgement where men are concerned, The Boyfriend Experience App sounds like the answer to her prayers. A cover-up for the recent break-up and no chance of catching feelings – famous last words. Initially, Evie chose Eric because coincidently his name is the same as the cheater ex, lol Although Eric is coerced into meeting Evie by his friends, their initial encounter sparks something inside him that has long since been dormant. Keeping the truth of his involvement to himself, Eric finds himself meeting Evie’s quirky family and opening himself emotional in a way he hasn’t before. Both Evie and Eric fall hard and fast, while Evie is willing to expose her vulnerability in order to have a chance at a happily ever after; Eric is holding onto his narrow-mindset in an attempt to avoid heartache. Nothing in life comes with a guarantee unless you’re an appliance; giving your heart is a risk but one with endless rewards. Is Eric brave enough to take that leap of faith? You’ll have to read The Boyfriend Experience to find out

This was a great story. I laughed and I cried. And I totally got why Evie hired a boyfriend. I loved the form of payment; I mean really who wouldn't. And holy moly she has a wackodoodle family. I'm not sure I could survive in this family, but it was a hoot reading about them. A definite must read. I haven't enjoyed a book this much in quite some time.

This story was soo good!!! Eric is a sexy, alpha, and fun package, all wrapped in a yummy bow. He’s perfect for Evie, and builds in confidence in a way that a real man would. Evie is a breath of fresh air, sweet, and beyond giving. These two are so hot together, and will leave you a bit hot and bothered. Evie’s family (well, most of them at least) had me cracking up at their antics, and I hope to read more about them in future books! A great read I would highly recommend!

I loved this one start to finish. It's one that I was sad to see end. I loved the characters so hard in this book. It had light-hearted and fun moments that had me laughing. It also had serious hit me in the heart moments. There is a moment in the epilogue that is truly beautiful that brought a tear to me eye. I's so meaningful. Eric definitely has some great boyfriend moves. I would want to sign up for his services. That man deserves a HEA. I loved Evie. I couldn't have picked someone better than Eric for her. I loved Evie's parents. They had me laughing quite often. This is definitely a book you don't want to pass up on. Once you start this book you't be able to put it down.

What an absolutely FABTASTIC book this is! I loved this sweet, sexy, fun read from two of my fave co-writers, Erika Wilde and Carly Phillips! It was pure joy to read! Eric Miller is a man who, for his own reasons, doesn't do relationships. He is content with his successful business, his friends and the one-night-stands that fill his life...he's got nothing else to offer. Until his friend who's starting a new online dating app, The Boyfriend Experience, secretly adds his profile and Eric gets his first message from Evie Bennett, who needs a fake boyfriend for her upcoming family reunion! The humour and banter between the friends made me laugh, so when Eric is goaded into accepting the initial coffee date to meet Evie, he decides to let her down easy and explain the situation to her. Except, that doesn't happen and Evie ends up "hiring" Eric to be her fake boyfriend! Let the games begin... I loved the secondary characters that we meet at the family reunion! Especially Evie's parents, who are...well, I won't say what I'm thinking, you'll just have to find out yourself! Let me just say that they are surprising, to say the least! And every good story needs someone to hate, right? Well, this one is no exception because Evie's cousin Raquel is one of those characters that you want to strangle (at least I did!) There isn't a lot of angst in this one...there are some touching and heartfelt moments that made me tear up, but no ugly-crying angst! It's mostly a feel-good, fun and sexy read and I can't WAIT for the next book in this new series!

She finds the perfect guy in Eric Miller, not only does he share the name of her ex but his short bio fits perfectly with Evie's needs. Eric has been pushed into his friends app without his knowledge and when he gets a message from Evie he just wants to tell her no. He decides he should meet her and person and break it to her gently but once he does he just can't seem to say no. The two chat back and forth and seem to have a real connection so Eric agrees to help Evie out. Follow along as the two flirt around a real relationship even though they both have feelings for the other. Will this fake boyfriend experience stay just that fake or can the two come together and let their true feelings shine through. This was a sweet romance that had you wanting the two to end up together. They both needed the other and you want them to realize that a move forward.

4 1/2 STARS! Sassy, fun and delightful! A fast paced story filled with humor, sexual tension and sweet interaction. They go into this weekend thinking they are putting on an act, but it doesn't take them long to start feeling way too much for each other. Super cute story with a powerful case of the feels! Salon owner Evie Bennett can't face attending an upcoming family gathering without the boyfriend everyone thinks she will have by her side. It's not her fault yet another man has led her astray and broken her heart. Something really must be wrong with her man picking abilities! When a client hooks her up with a new boyfriend-for-hire app, she's determined to pull a rabbit out of a hat and fool the family! Businessman Eric Miller has no clue why he's all of a sudden getting a pop up on his phone from some app called The Boyfriend Experience. He knows it wasn't him that downloaded the thing, so that leaves only one person ... his buddy Dylan. Just when he thinks it can't get any worse, Dylan answers the request for a weekend boyfriend and sets up a coffee date to talk about it. This guy is going down! He lets himself be dared into keeping the date, and man is he in trouble. Evie is a doll, and he can't resist agreeing to help her out ... guess he's her new boyfriend!

I loved Evie and Eric’s love story in The Boyfriend Experience, another hit for co-authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. Eric should have known better than to drink and tick off his app designer friend; especially since that designer signed him up for his dating app without his knowledge. Evie is desperately in need of a date for her family reunion; one who knows how to treat a woman well, unlike the jerks she previously dated. While searching on the Boyfriend Experience App Evie finds Eric and the two make plans to meet. Eric had not planned to go through with it but once he saw her in person he changed his mind. Eric was an amazing hero who understands how to treat a woman and make her feel the luckiest and most important person in the world. I loved getting to know these two characters along with their families. The love they shared made each of them stronger and better people. Combining their voices Ms. Phillips and Ms. Wilde created a wonderful, emotional and moving story filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, some laughs and endearing characters that is not to be missed. I highly recommend The Boyfriend Experience to other readers I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

THE BOYFRIEND EXPERIENCE is the first instalment in Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde’s contemporary, adult THE BOYFRIEND EXPERIENCE erotic, romance series, a spin-off from Erika Wilde’s Tall, Dark and Sexy series. This is twenty-nine year old, Prestige Car Service owner Eric Miller, and salon stylist Evie Bennett’s story line. Eric was first introduced in Tall, Dark And Tempting. You do not have to read the previous series to understand or comprehend The Boyfriend Experience. Told from dual third person perspectives (Eric and Evie) THE BOYFRIEND EXPERIENCE follows the building but fake relationship between twenty-nine year old, Prestige Car Service owner Eric Miller, and salon stylist Evie Bennett. Evie needs a ‘boyfriend’ for her family reunion but when her friends suggest the dating app ‘The Boyfriend Experience, Evie never expected anything beyond a business proposal. Enter Prestige Car Service owner Eric Miller, and the man with whom Evie will fall in love. What ensues is the ‘fake boyfriend’ relationship between Evie and Eric, and the potential fall-out as Eric doesn’t do relationships or fall in love. Evie Bennett’s last two relationships ended in disaster but meeting Eric Miller gave Evie thoughts about a future, a future that would never be. Eric Miller doesn’t do long term relationships yet Evie Bennett stirs something in Eric he long thought buried and died. The relationship between Evie and Eric begins as a business arrangement. Eric had no intentions of ever using the ‘Boyfriend Experience’ but when his best friend and app developer Dylan Stone signed him up without his knowledge, Eric took a gamble and fell in love. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The secondary and supporting characters are colorful and familiar including Leo and Peyton, Aiden and Daisy, Dylan and Serena from the author’s Tall, Dark and Sexy series. We are introduced to Dylan’s mother Ginny Miller; Evie’s brother Garrett , his boyfriend Aaron, and their parents Lauren and Gene Bennett; Evie’s cousin Raquel and her fiancé Graham. The world building focuses on the back stories and histories of our leading couple. Evie struggles to find a man worthy of her love; Eric fears the future isn’t always what everyone expected. THE BOYFRIEND EXPERIENCE is a story of family, loss, moving forward and letting go of the past. The premise is engaging, entertaining and fun; the characters are sexy, sassy and energetic; the romance is fated and hot. Another wonderful romance story from Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde.

When it comes to men Evie Bennett is at a loss, she thought she had the man of her dreams, and he wound up being the man of her nightmares. He cheated, broke her heart, and made her the center of everyone's gossip circle... talk about embarrassing! With her family reunion approaching, she knows that she'll have a million questions to answer about her break-up. And picturing the pity she'll see on everyone's faces leads her to think she might need to take a buffer along with her. When she mentions this to a friend she suggests Evie try using her brother-in-laws dating app, The Boyfriend Experience. While she has her reservations about using a app to find a man, she also realizes that as of late her inner man picker has failed her miserably, so she gives it a try... and winds up getting far more than she ever bargained for! From the very first page The Boyfriend Experience had me intrigued, and with every page that followed the more captivated I became, Evie and Eric were quite the storytellers! Their little love connection brought smiles, swoons, and tugged on the heartstrings. It was fun watching these two maneuver through the tricky situation that they got themselves tangled up in. What started as a little ruse quickly became something else entirely, the more time they spent together the more heated things became, and before long feelings started to bloom and take hold. I loved every minute of this one, it was good on my heart and left me with an unshakable smile. Highly recommend! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.
