"Fast-paced and fun. I loved this charming story." – Michele Gorman, USA Today and Sunday Times Bestselling Author
Is Christmas really the most wonderful time of the year? New Yorkers Robyn Lane and Sidney Bellows aren't so sure.
Robyn has always dated struggling creative types. For once, her parents would love her to bring someone with health insurance and a 401(k) to their Chrismukkah celebration. Her actor boyfriend doesn't qualify. While across town, Sidney's professional life already belongs to her parents. She's an attorney at her father's law firm and she works tirelessly to keep her love life private. If she brings her lawyer boyfriend to their annual Christmas extravaganza, her parents will have the wedding planned by New Year's Eve.
A mutual friend playfully suggests they trade boyfriends for the holidays. The women share a laugh, but after copious amounts of wine, decide The Boyfriend Swap could be the perfect solution. This way, Robyn can show off her stable attorney boyfriend and Sidney's high-society family will take no interest in her flaky actor beau.
It's a brilliant plan--in theory. In practice--not so much. When Will turns out to be the boy-next-door Robyn crushed on hard throughout her teenage years, and Sidney's family fawns all over Perry like he's an Oscar-winner rather than a D-list wannabe, one thing is certain: The Boyfriend Swap might just change their lives forever.

"Friends swap shoes, purses and gossip. Why not boyfriend's? Warm, witty and winning, The Boyfriend Swap is wonderful entertainment you'll want to share with your best friend." - Karin Gillespie, Author of Divinely Yours

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Robyn and Sidney end up at a happy hour/party of sorts and after a few adult beverages they are complaining about the upcoming holidays and how their families will react to their current boyfriends when they realize that they are dating what they think their families will see as their ideal, so why not swap for the holidays!
Fun and enjoyable book.
Every book by Meredith Schorr has turned into a must-read for me. When she offered The Boyfriend Swap I knew that I wouldn’t be able to turn it down. Now that I am done with the book it is on my must-read list too. When the plan was for hatched for the boyfriend swap I could see that there would be hiccups, fun, and hopefully some romance. I enjoyed seeing the traditions of Robyn and Sidney’s families. Their celebration of Christmas was a family experience and it was fun to see how different their families were. Robyn’s family seemed more my style, with the sing a longs, presents, and meals. I felt that I could relate to her more than Sidney’s high style, fancy, expensive celebrations. Yet, both families were fun and interesting. As the story went on I found myself laughing, smiling, and thoroughly enjoying every page. The Boyfriend Swap is a book I’d definitely recommend picking up. Thank you Meredith Schorr and NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Are you a "relationship of convenience" junkie? Then do yourself a favor and get a copy of The Boyfriend Swap by Meredith Schorr. This entertaining story takes place during the holiday season, and there are two couples in the staring role. Robyn is an elementary school music teacher who is still in love with Will, her high school crush. Unbeknown to Robyn, Will just happens to be dating Robyn's roommate's boss. Robyn needs a date for the holiday festivities at her parent's house, and only a non-creative type will do. So bringing her present boyfriend, a very good-looking actor, is not an option. Sydney is an attorney with her father's firm, and she has no desire to talk shop while decking the halls. So bringing her attorney boyfriend to the family Christmas gathering will only add fuel to the fire. Luckily her assistant has a solution, trade boyfriends in order to enjoy the holidays. Feelings blossom between both of the new couples, which makes for an engaging story. This is primarily a clean read, with nicely developed characters and sexual tension. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
Meredith Schorr has put together a story that would merit being a Hallmark Christmas Special. Sidney is a lawyer only interested in billable hours. Robyn shares her love of music and theater with her students. Both of these women have boyfriends that share the same interests as they enjoy. SO... WHY do they not want to take them home for their family Christmas?? Will is a lawyer and Perry is an actor. Family pressure to find the perfect love interest forces these women to pursue a swap in guys to make Mom and Dad happy and eliminate their constant nagging. Opposites attract and the sparks ignite in this enjoyable holiday story. Quick read that is perfect to curl up with.
