Book Review: "The Fill-In Boyfriend" by Kasie West
So, yeah, the basic story line is predictable. I don't care. I love the way West introduces us to these characters and gives them such wonderful hearts. Where Gia took me a beat to actually like - she really is pretty shallow in the beginning - Fill-in Bradley is nearly perfect and his sister Bec is awesome. I really enjoyed the dialogue between Gia and Fill-in Bradley (we do learn his real name, but its a great little scene and I don't want to spoil it for you).
Bottom line is that this is a tried and true trope, done in an adorable way by this author - one of my favorites for cutesy YA contemporary romantic stories. I was in the mood for a feel good, happy kind of story and this delivered exactly what I needed.
