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.

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.

The Boyfriend Experience The fake boyfriend/girlfriend/fiancé/whatever lol has always been a favorite of mine because … laughter, always laughter! This book intrigued me not just because of the trope, but because of the unique app concept in the story-line. And it delivered! The story of Evie and Eric was fun, flirty, heartwarming and sexy! The secondary characters enhanced the story-line and will make you want to look for their stories in the future. It’s a rather quick read with a kinda predictable conflict but the #win of it all lies in Evie and Eric just being complimentary to each other from the very beginning.

The boyfriend experience was a really fun way to spend my evening. Eric and Evie burned up the pages and had me laughing from time to time with their humor. Eric's friends trick him into being involved in an online dating app then dare him to go through with it and what guy can turn that down, but when he meets Evie all bets and his good intentions go out the window. Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde are a couple of my favorite authors and together they bring this story to life with interesting characters and an all around fun story.

Eric gets snookered into playing a fake boyfriend role by one of his best pals. The app his friend created is still in progress and he might as well go along with it. Then he meets her and it all changes. Evie is impressed with Eric before she even meets him in person. Once they see one another eye-to-eye, it is immediate attraction on both sides. Can she keep her heart intact when yet another male has a secret that was kept from her? The heat sears and steps it up right from the beginning in this latest collab by some of the best authors in the industry! Heart pumping and sexy to read, this story has sparks a flyin, while humor is laced throughout. Great start to what is looking to soon be another excellent series. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

I love Evie and Eric. They are both such sweet people in this story. Evie is a sweet, heart of gold, part salon owner/hairdresser that spends 1 day each month making over women from domestic abuse shelters called the Beautiful You Program. She is also going to be the holder of a Humanitarian Award for such program. Unfortunately, Evie is also a woman of a recent breakup. Eric, her now ex-boyfriend was a cheating horrible boyfriend that along with Evie as his girlfriend, also had a fiancé. Evie has a family reunion coming up and wished that she didn’t have to face everyone with another breakup under her belt. Falling her friends suggestion she decided to use the new Boyfriend Experience app. With the app she can hire someone to play her boyfriend so she doesn’t have to face her family alone. Eric, no relation to the ex-boyfriend Eric, is a sexy single man as well as a twin brother to his late sister. Trisha, Eric’s twin passed away when she was only 16 years old and since then Eric has sworn off relationships as to not to hurt a woman if he passes away as well. Eric’s friend Dylan who made the Boyfriend Experience app decided to mess with Eric and downloaded his app on Eric’s phone without his knowledge. While sitting with his friends Eric’s phone dings with a notification from the Boyfriend Experience app letting him know that someone was interested in hiring him. Dylan takes it upon himself to answer the notification for Eric and set up a meeting with the woman, who happens to be Evie. Eric decided to go through with meeting Evie with every intention of not excepting the job, but once Eric see’s Evie for the first time, all bets are off. You gotta read to get the whole story and all the naked truths. This was a fantastic read. I really enjoyed it. Sad to see it end but looking forward to more.

This was so fun, and sweet, and sexy. I really loved it. 4.5 Stars. Evie Bennett, was cheated on, and broke up with her boyfriend. Again. Why does this keep happening to her? How can she have the worst taste in men ever?? And now, to avoid going to a family reunion single, yet again, she might be making another mistake, by hiring a fake boyfriend from a new app called the Boyfriend Experience. Evie is a hairdresser, and co-owner of her own salon. One of her clients offered up the idea to use the app, and she decided, why not? No feelings involved and she'll get everything she needs out of the interaction. Sign her up. Eric Miller has no interest in a serious relationship, given his family history. He sometimes pursues women when the mood strikes him, but they all know the score ahead of time. He's not ever going to settle down. It wouldn't be fair, and no one can convince him otherwise. When his good friend, and creator of the app the Boyfriend Experience, signs him up for the beta testing against his wishes, and sets up a meeting for him with a potential client, he can't stomach the idea of cancelling on the woman. But, he never expects meeting Evie, or the changes she'll bring about in his life. Evie and Eric had magical chemistry from the start, and watching their sexy banter was super fun. I loved their witty and fun back-and-forth, and the way they settled into each other's thoughts, and lives, so easily. A chance meeting, through an app that hasn't even fully launched yet, and insane chemistry in real life? What are the chances that ever happens again? They had to take it for everything they could. Even if it hurt in the end. Evie's family was an absolute, crazy delight. Her brother and his boyfriend were hysterical, and her sex positive parents were embarrassingly hilarious too. I loved getting to know them. And boy was her cousin a piece of work! What a terrible, selfish person! Eric's friends were fun, and entertaining as well. Eric's mom on the other hand was so somber, and I really hurt for her situation, while simultaneously blaming her for everything that was going wrong in Eric's life, and the way she had retreated from him. His story was truly heartbreaking, and it brought me to tears more than once. I loved how Evie and Eric truly fit into each other's lives so perfectly. They really came to understand each other and love the other person deeply. They loved each others' flaws and imperfections as much as they did they great things about each other, and it was magical watching them explore that fragile, new connection. Pretty much my only complaint was that I really wanted to know how they handled telling her awesome parents the truth after everything. I think this should've been touched on later, and I would've loved to see it. But, this book made me laugh, and cry, and sigh, and swoon, and I loved it. I highly recommend it.

This story features Eric and Evie. I can’t imagine what Eric has been through. It’s so tragic. I understand his logic in the way he’s living his life but at the same time, it’s not completely his choice to make. Eric is an AMAZING boyfriend! He’s attentive in ALL ways, chivalrous, loves PDAs and is free with honest compliments. Oh, and he’s pretty amazing in bed too. Very close to perfection! Evie is pretty great too. I think I had her pegged as quiet and shy but she’s neither of those things. She was a little guarded because of her past experiences. These two bring out the best in each other. Evie’s parents are pretty hilarious and fabulous! I can’t imagine how it would have been growing up with parents like hers. I would have liked more interaction with her grandfather, which she is extremely close to. Last but definitely not least, Graham and Raquel are getting EVERYTHING they deserve. This is another fabulous read from the dynamic duo of writing teams. I can’t wait for the next one!

ARC for honest review with no compensation The Boyfriend Experience by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde is a standalone but we get to meet up with the Stone brothers from the Tall, Dark and Sexy series. Another amazing read by these two authors!! What happens when you need a “fake boyfriend” to take home for a sign up for the “Boyfriend Experience “ app as a beta tester and search the profiles for your match. Only once you meet have chemistry, butterflies and swooning but you know it can only be for the immediate future. He on the other hand had no intention of being apart of this but once he meets her...he needs to know more about her. Can this become more than a “fake boyfriend weekend” only time will tell.....

In The Boyfriend Experience we meet Eric Miller which is a successful, sexy, smooth talking, non-commitment type of guy. He’s never let himself get too close to any woman other than an occasional hookup. Evie Bennett is a hardworking woman that has had her share of bad relationships and she’s not looking for any long term commitments. When Eric’s friend signs him up to be a beta tester for his new Boyfriend Experience app he doesn’t realize what he’s gotten himself into by agreeing to be a fake boyfriend to Evie for a family reunion. Evie needs a boyfriend for a weekend with her family after she’s been dumped so there are no questions of why she’s no longer in a relationship. A friend talks her into being a beta tester for The Boyfriend Experience app so she will have a date for a crazy weekend with her non conventional family. When Eric and Evie are brought together there are immediate sparks flying! There are so many emotions that will tug on your heart throughout the entire journey. Carly Phillips and Ericka Wilde do a great job writing together to create a sexy heartfelt romance that will suck you in!

All the butterfly feels in this beautiful romance! Without Eric's permission, his friend uses him as a beta tester for his new Boyfriend Experience app, despite the fact that Eric has absolutely no experience as a Boyfriend. He's kept all his encounters relationship-free because of his history. But when he meets Evie, his plans to let her down easy fly out the window and he's compelled to see it through. Evie doesn't want to deal with the drama of her recent breakup when she sees her family for their annual reunion, so the boyfriend for hire seems like a perfect solution. She knows there'll be nothing continuing afterwards, and that works just fine for her. The story really gets right to the emotional heart of things, and does so beautifully. The symbolism of the butterflies was exquisite, adding so much depth with just a few images. I really enjoyed this love story, and the HEA was nicely wrapped up. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Great experience Eric’s friend has been working on a new app the boyfriend experience which is for women to find a boyfriend if they need someone at a function. He wanted nothing to do with this app and he wants nothing to do with a long term commitment. Evil just broke up with her ex and has to go to a family reunion and doesn’t all the questions and whispering about her relationship. Her friend told her about the boyfriend experience app and to try it. These two are great and I love the reason behind them meeting. It feels so real. Erika Wilde and Carly Phillips always bring their A games and this read did not disappoint. I. Could not put this read down. I highly recommend.

I loved this book that was cute, fun, sweet and steamy. I thought Evie and Eric ere perfect together. These two generated so many sparks. Evie was a character that was easy to connect with. Spunky and sweet, she seemed like a close friend, or the friend you always wanted to have. Eric was a charming, commitment shy and had some heavy baggage. It did not take long for me to be 100% in this couple's corner. A swoon worthy romance that will make you just feel happy. I thought it was fantastic!

What happens when you go out drinking with friends and one happens to be an app designer? Well, that designer might sign you up for his dating app without you knowing it. Evie on the other hand is in desperate need of a date for her family reunion...and one who will not look like a deeb or treat her like a jerk that her recent ex was. Evie meet Eric (Who's profile was on the Boyfriend Experience App via his best friend). Evie is one of the test subjects for the app and Eric is well let's just say he had planned on not going through with it but once he saw her in person that flew out the coffee shop door. I totally enjoyed this book. There were times I laughed and other times oh lets say our authors know how to romance a girl. Oh Yes this book definitely gives you the Boyfriend Experience!
