The Stand-In Boyfriend by Christina Benjamin book review



Sometimes the person you’re meant to be with is standing right in front of you.

Parker Reed has been in love with Beth Bennett since he was four years old. She grew up next door to him, holding his hand and now his heart. The problem is, Beth has no idea Parker is in love with her. He’s stuck in the friend zone, forced to stand by while Beth dates a parade of losers. But with their senior year of high school winding down, Parker finds himself wondering how much longer he can hide his feelings for Beth.

Beth Bennett’s life is perfect. She’s convinced she has it all—the world’s best friend and the world’s best boyfriend. Now if only she could get the two to get along. With her spring break trip to Aspen just around the corner, Beth feels the pressure to spend time with both the guys in her life. But as usual, her older sister throws a wrench into Beth’s plans by hijacking her perfect spring break with a shotgun wedding. As Beth scrambles to balance being a girlfriend, best friend and sister, her perfectly planned life spirals out of control. As always Parker is there to catch her. And when Beth’s boyfriend decides he’d rather go skiing than be her wedding date, Parker steps in to take his place. He decides the wedding is his big chance to tell Beth how he feels. What does he have to lose . . . besides the girl of his dreams? Who will Beth choose? Her boyfriend, or the boy who’s never let her down?


I’ve never really been a fan of PB&J, rather I’ve always like PB (read the book for the reference). This super cute book will make you positively swoon over Parker. Parker is so sincere and caring over Beth. Beth I love her but was so frustrated with her over her being oblivious to what was in front of her. Her so called best friend I wanted to slap as she was never really a friend, and don’t even get me started on Jared…..(asshat). I did really love this book overall, so many love/hate characters and swoon worthy moments. It was a fun, fast paced read and I could not put it down. Christina Benjamin is really amazing and talented writer and each book gets better and better. The plots are wonderful and original and the writing will keep you glued to ever page with its flawlessness. I definitely recommend her boyfriend series! 5 stars from me for this swoon worthy read.
