The Boyfriend Swap

The Boyfriend Swap

byMeredith Schorr(Goodreads 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 flakey 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.

Can you imagine switching boyfriends for a Holiday weekend just to meet your parents? What do you think would happen? This is the premise for “The Boyfriend Swap” by Meredith Schorr.   The genres for “The Boyfriend Swap” are Fiction and Women’s Fiction.
I appreciate the way Meredith Schorr weaves her entertaining tale. I found this to be delightful and at times humourous.
The colorful characters can be described as complicated, complex, quirky, and dysfunctional.  Robin is a music teacher, with many talents, and Sidney is a high -powered attorney working at her father’s firm. Both dread the holidays, when they go home and bring a date or boyfriend. Both sets of parents are very different with unusual expectations set for their daughters. At a wine tasting party, and a little too much wine, Sidney and Robin agree to a “boyfriend swap” for the holiday weekend.
This is a predictable story with some twists and turns. I enjoyed this novel and found myself chuckling out load many times. I would highly recommend this novel for readers who enjoy an easy read, and want a good feel story. I received  ARC from the Great Thoughts and Readers Ninja Group for my honest opinion.
