Reviewed by Paul F. Murray for Readers' Favorite The Boyfriend Whisperer by Linda Budzinski is a delightful new take on the teen romance novel. Instead of simple boy-meets-girl, we have a situation where high school basketball star Lexi Malloy is secretly helping every girl out there, except herself, to find the boyfriend of her dreams. Lexi, the Boyfriend Whisperer, provides advice to other girls on how to appeal to the boy of her dreams through identifying with his interests in movies, music, or sports. The scheme works well until one of the high school cheerleaders, Lindsay, requests that the Boyfriend Whisperer fix her up with the one boy, Chris, a fellow high school basketball standout, that Lexi wants for herself. Reluctantly, after Lindsay pays Lexi’s assistant and best friend, Abi, $125 for the Boyfriend Whisperer’s services, Lexi goes ahead and sets Lindsay up with Chris. How will all of this play out? Will Lexi somehow move cheerleader Lindsay out of the way and get Chris in the end, or will handsome Jerod take Chris’s place in Lexi’s life? What will happen if Lexi’s classmates — not all of whom have had good experiences with the Boyfriend Whisperer — find out that Lexi is the BW? Will Lexi be able to keep her secret? Meanwhile, Lexi tries to sort out her own life — does she want to keep playing basketball in college, or go a different route in life? I thoroughly enjoyed The Boyfriend Whisperer by Linda Budzinski. It is extremely well-written, and there is a creative breath of fresh air take on the usual teen romance plot, with a great deal of suspense, not only revolving around Lexi-Lindsay-Chris-Jerod, but also around Lexi’s ability, or not, to help other girls in her high school get their desired boyfriends. Readers of teen romance novels will have trouble putting this book down.
