The Boyfriend Swap by Meredith Schorr
I honestly don’t know how I’ve waited so long, but this is the first novel I’ve read by Meredith Schorr. I’ve heard great things about her novels and I’m glad I’ve finally read one! This one is an interesting story about two young women that are dreading bringing their boyfriends home for the holidays and would do just about anything not to have to bring them as their date. Neither wants to go without their boyfriend and one comes up with a ridiculous idea that they both end up going through with. It didn’t go at all how either of them planned, and yet, it works out well for everyone involved.
The story’s interesting situation brought up themes of infidelity and knowing when a person is truly right for you. It also brought up the importance of being honest with yourself. Sometimes you need to change your ways when you’re practicing self-destructive behavior or pushing away from people because you’re scared or too stuck in your ways. It’s never too late to acknowledge your inner self and make changes to improve your mindset and the way you approach different situations. I enjoyed the writing style and was a bit sad when it was all over because it was over!
My Rating: 5/5 Stars

About the Book
Title: The Boyfriend Swap
Author: Meredith Schorr
Published: November 7, 2017
Book Blurb: 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.
