    Last summer, I read a book by this author, and thought it a well thought out, non-sappy chick-lit type novel, so when this one fell into my hands with a batch of books I was given to BookCross, I thought I'd read it, too. Despite the fact that the title made me a little uncomfortable to read in public, it was a perfect poolside read.

Again Geraci has created some likeable characters, and put them in realistic situations, laced with humor. While I could immediately see the flaws in the idea of a boyfriend of the month club, modeled on a book club, (some of which Geraci developed into plot arcs) it was amusing to see the follow through. Sometimes, when I start a book such as this, I'll write down at the beginning who I think will end up with whom. My score for this one was 100%, even for the duo introduced late in the book, but it was fun to see how the author brought everyone together.

    Slightly dull, the pacing is slow, and some of the characters sure come off as dumb - especially the main character. Grace had a bad date - the blurb touted it as the worst date she had ever had, but my reaction to it was huh? really? that's it? - so she came up with the idea to change her bookclub into a club that would review boyfriends. Now if this sounds like a good idea to you, to air out your dirty laundry like that in front of others, perhaps you will like this book.

Now if this sounds like a good idea to you, to air out your dirty laundry like that in front of others, perhaps you will like this book. As for me, I didn't care for the protagonist and her petty, vindictive ways. Basically, I couldn't really identify with her, since she uses an excuse of being possessed by an evil genie ("Mal Genio") or something every time she f-s up. Really. Learn to take some responsibility for your actions, girl, and think before you act. I did like some of the secondary characters, like Grace's family, and the way the book was set up (with every chapter being like a mini short story) was interesting in the beginning. This one wasn't a complete dud, but it wasn't that good either. It was mostly a meh.

    There are lots of books out there about single women trying to find the perfect man, so I wasn't sure what to expect with Maria Geraci's latest, THE BOYFRIEND OF THE MONTH CLUB. What I found inside the pages was a highly readable and funny tale of a Daytona Beach woman, Gracie O'Bryan, who's juggling her crazy friends and relatives, her rotten love life, and her job managing the family-owned Florida Charlie's, a big tourist stop off a major highway.

What I found inside the pages was a highly readable and funny tale of a Daytona Beach woman, Gracie O'Bryan, who's juggling her crazy friends and relatives, her rotten love life, and her job managing the family-owned Florida Charlie's, a big tourist stop off a major highway. Gracie's wary of love after a long-term relationship ends badly. When a date with a rugby-playing rich boy blows up in her face (or, rather, ends up with a pitcher of beer in the guy's lap), Gracie decides that what she and her friends need more than a book club is a boyfriend club, where they can name and rate the guys they've gone out with so they can steer clear of the losers. Unfortunately for Gracie, things get out of control very quickly: with the club, the men in her life, and the family business. Armed with Moose Tracks ice cream and a bounce-back attitude, Gracie navigates every crazy crisis with humor and pluck. A very enjoyable read that I'd highly recommend to any chick lit lover!

    I really enjoyed this book. It kept me reading until way past my bed time. Grace was such a great character and so easy to relate to, although I think if I'd had friends like hers, I wouldn't have been quite so nice and forgiving LOL The idea of a boyfriend of the month club is very appealing and I loved the idea of relating each man to a literary figure, particularly the Jane Austen ones.

    so far - i'm disappointed. I'm about 1/2 way through. My biggest problem is that the author thinks she's WAY more clever than she actually is, so the writing is very boring to read. too bad - it has so much potential. I'm debating whether or not to finish it or start working on something else in my list... Just finished. Glad to say the book didn't get any WORSE but sad to say it still only gets 2 stars. There were a few parts that moved really quickly - hence the finished book. I felt like it wa so far - i'm disappointed. I'm about 1/2 way through.

    I won this book on a giveaway!! Super excited to read it!! Thanks Goodreads! I thought this book started out funny and real, you meet Grace, a 30 year old who is dating. Throughout the book you get to know her more as she dates other guys and there's two from the past trying to get her back, and one she just met trying to get to know her too. I thought it ended well and was well wrote, but the middle of the book I got bored. I ended up finding the main character kinda annoying. I won this book on a giveaway!! Super excited to read it!!

    I found most of the characters uninteresting (not even unlikeable, just uninteresting), the frequent invocations of Jane Austen and the Brontes wishful thinking at best, and the only actually enjoyable part of the book was the (very very) side plot of Charlie and Sarah (I had to walk across the bookstore in the middle of that sentence to make sure I had remembered their names correctly). Given the opportunity, I would have liked to have a chat with Grace about her self-esteem. But whatever.

    Do you know how sometimes when you are reading a book and the characters are doing something so obviously stupid and you know it's going to blow up in their face and you just want to reach into the pages and shake them so that they stop?? Just me? Anyways - I felt like that about 50% of the time while reading this. That said, it wasn't an entirely bad book. The characters are likeable enough and it's a really quick read.

    This is cute enough, but it just dragged on too much. It felt like it would repeat information over again all the time. I was crazy about the author's book A Girl Like You, and this had a bit of her sass, but it just wasn't as good. I didn't like the supporting characters as much and the third person wasn't as successful as first person. This is cute enough, but it just dragged on too much.

    At first I thought this book was really cute. The story moved along well and the characters were funny. In the middle of the book, the story started to drag. The plot was very weak and didn't move the story forward the way it had done in the earlier chapters. By the time the end of the book came I was ready to be done with it.

    Frivolous romance novel where women start a “boyfriend club” to review men instead of books and compare them to literary heroes and rakes. It’s fine for what it is but it’s very much “empty calories” of reading. I got it free which is good!

    I enjoyed this book for the most part. Grace and three of her friends are members of a book club, but one night after a date gone wrong, she comes up with the idea of changing it to a Boyfriend of the Month Club. The idea is to create a file on different men and their faults. I found it frustrating to read because you just knew something was going to go wrong. Despite that though, I liked the rest of the book.

After a failed attempt at having a hot date with Daytona Beach' most eligible bachelor, she shows up at the book club meeting, and wants to critique her date, and past boyfriends. That way, other women will hopefully avoid heartache and bad dates based on her reviews.

The characters all had their own personality and it was a fun read, especially for book lovers who can identify a Heathcliffe from Colonel Brandon.

    So good!! This book was so different than any of the typical romance novels that I read. I really didn’t know which way things were going to go, right up until the end. But I absolutely couldn’t put it down until I found out how things all worked out. I loved al of the characters and everyone in Grace’s family. I highly recommend it!

    Link: https://holedupinabook.blogspot.com/2... For some reason, I thought that the characters were older than they actually were. I thought they were more like mid to late 30s as opposed to just 30. Mainly because the way how they acted – a little bitter, jaded and whatnot.

But then again, I live in NYC where it’s perfectly normal to be single at 30 and no one is particularly bitter about it. I don’t really see that happening until their late 30s. I guess it’s probably different down there in Daytona Beach. This was definitely a LOL type of book. There were so many times when I found myself chuckling or thinking that Grace and her friends were a weird bunch. I mean, Grace talks to a stuffed alligator. I think that by itself is quite strange and add to the mix that she’s 30, that’s super bizarre but apparently that’s part of her charm. While I thought that the plot itself was hilarious, it was also quite predictable. It was pretty obvious from the start who Grace would end up with as well as what would happen to her closest friends (i.e. Penny and Sarah). The only one I was a little surprised by was Ellen and her romantic outcome. Definitely did not see that coming so I was pleased with the little plot twist. The characters themselves weren’t that well developed which made sense since at the end of the day, this is a chicklit and they’re not exactly known for well thought out characters. However they all had their own charm and their own role to play. The one friend I was annoyed at most of the time was Ellen because for such a close friend, she was incredibly insensitive at times and she would do things that would irritate Grace. It didn’t seem as she knew what boundaries were because she continuously crossed them without any regards. So I was definitely not a fan of her. As for the romance side of things, since at the end of the day, this is a chicklit novel, it was cute. I wouldn’t say it was swoon worthy nor was it made my toes curl kind of steamy romance but it was very entertaining and adorable. The interaction between Grace and her obvious beau was endearing and the fact that she didn’t feel comfortable with him in the beginning (at least comfortable to share a lot of personal thoughts) was very relatable to me. The other romances between her friends and their respective guys were also entertaining to read. Some of them more than others. I did enjoy the boyfriend club aspect as well as the whole “character” idea just because I thought it was actually quite true to some degree. There are always those “Mr. Darcy’s” out there and it was fun to see how each of the guys matched up to a literary character. The concept was quite fun and I enjoyed the meetings thoroughly. Overall, the book was a delightful read and was perfect for a “summer is ending” kind of theme. A lighthearted novel with romance and a dash of thrill. I would recommend it to those who are looking for a cute chicklit novel.

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.

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.

Then Grace meets two adorable guys - Joe Rosenblum, her sexy dentist who sounds too perfect to be true, and Brandon Farrell, the guy whom she had the disastrous first date with. Between deciding which guy is the One and working to save her family’s failing souvenir shop, Grace also has to rein in the book club’s sudden increase in members. All of a sudden, her book club turns into a podium for disgruntled women to vent and when her club is exposed by a local radio station, names are aired, and there is a backlash against Gracie. The guys “reviewed” are hurt and humiliated, including Joe and Brandon. Can she save her relationship with Joe or is she destined for Brandon? The Boyfriend Club is an entertaining book. Even though it’s more of a chick-lit than strictly romance, the romance part is definitely romantic. Geraci keeps me in suspense as I tried to figure out which guy Grace would end up with. I enjoyed all the characters, even the perfect Mr. Joe. They were fun to read and hilarious at times. Especially Ellen, one of the book club’s founding members, and how she outwitted the radio station DJ. At times, I feel like Grace’s indecisiveness drags down the book, but thankfully, these moments are far and few in between. Overall, this book is a fun beach read.

The Boyfriend of the Month Club by Maria Geraci is humorous and an interesting read. I enjoyed Grace’s character; I could feel a connection with her and bonded with her story and her search for love. The friendships in the book were excellent- except I did find myself extremely frustrated with the Ellen character often. And I really enjoyed that I wasn’t sure what was going on with Grace’s love life. So often, readers know which guy the girl will end up with, and you just wait to see how it plays out and they come together. But with two characters both in Grace’s line of vision, it made the story that much more interesting and kept my attention. A lighthearted and fun read, I would definitely recommend The Boyfriend of the Month Club to chick lit fans.
