Publisher's Summary

The rules of love and second chances are due for a major-league shake-up in a warm, witty, and unpredictable romance by the bestselling author of The Friend Zone.

Ian “Bash” Sebastian and Ember Carlson were high school sweethearts…until their single parents got married. With one thorny twist of fate, a secret young crush went from on fire to off-limits. What could a new stepbrother do but bail? Now, after almost four years, Bash has returned to Seattle, and he’s back in Ember’s orbit at End of the Line. EOL is the go-to college for second-chance scholarships. But what about love?

Sure, the old hurts are there. So is the attraction - and it’s more magnetic than ever. Still, they’re adults now, levelheaded and just fine with the friend thing. If only to make family dinners less awkward. But when they agree to start dating other people, moving on threatens to bring them closer together than ever.

Is it time to admit their past to their parents? Even trickier, their hope for the future? Because Ember and Bash deserve a love story of their own. With all their defenses down, can they make it a happy ever after?

Cute story

I enjoyed the story, but it took me a minute to remember who Bash was, because the voice was so different from the first book. I liked the male narrator a little better than the female, she sounded a little dramatic when it didn't need to be.

Cute and sweet love story!

Just a Boyfriend was ridiculously cute and sweet story. It is a second chance romance with flirty, fun banter and all the feels. Ember and Bash fell hard for each other in high school and they were just about to announce their relationship to their friends and family, their parents announce that they ran off and eloped and now suddenly they are step siblings. As teenagers they couldn’t handle their emotions for the other and Bash leaves town to move in with his grandmother. Now Bash is back and the two are attending the same college. They try friends at first but neither got over the other and soon neither can run from what they are feeling any longer. I enjoyed these characters so much. I loved their connection, the quirks they knew about each other and their sweet love story. It is low angst and just as the first book was it is very clean romance, with little to no steam and I wished for a little more.

Joe Arden and Lauren Sweet have amazing vocal chemistry. They voiced these characters perfectly. Joe taps into the emotion of the character in such a unique way and Lauren’s sweet sound matched her character so well.

All the goodness

Bash and Ember were so sweet.

A little frustrating at times, as they just danced around each other for sooooooooo long.
But damn, the build-up was worth it.
It was nice to see glimpses of Jess and Logan throughout the story - as well as Ford FINALLY confessing his feelings for Keilani.

Joe is already one of my favourite narrators, so I loved listening to him as Bash.
Lauren did a fantastic job as well.

Cute story, female narrator distracting

This book turned out better then I thought. The premise seemed weird to me, but it turned out to be a good, cute romance. The female narrator though was off putting when she spoke for the male character. It was distracting and took me out of the story a few times. I wish the male narrator could have just narrated all of the male lines.

Cute

I thought this was a very cute story and I enjoyed listening to it. If I were to be critical in any way, it would be that the female narrator was a little too "breathy" at times.

Not enough story there

I just couldn't get into this story. There was the potential for a good story there, but it was too YA for me, and it really went on twice as long for the amount of actual story content in this story.
I got this because of the narration, which was excellent, and the reason I ended up sticking it out. But really was hard to stay focused on the repetition and flimsy excuses.
Not worth the credit.

Gooey and Delicious Romance

I certainly hope that this is not the end of the line for this particular series. With its sweet moments and actual laugh-out-loud humor, I have greatly enjoyed the tales of Romance at EOL.
Bash and Ember were fun and sweet, yet written in such a way that they are identifiable to the reader. A+
