Blackmail Boyfriend
Release Date: 08/11/15
Entangled Teen: Crush

Summary from Goodreads:
Sometimes, blackmail is the only weapon a girl has…

Haley Patterson has had a crush on golden boy Bryce Colton for ages. But then when she hears a rumor—Bryce is telling everyone that  he hooked up with her. With Haley’s reputation taking a nosedive, she gives Bryce him a choice: be her boyfriend for a month for a month or face the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did hook up withto show other guys that she’s dateable—despite her overprotective and very intimidating brothers.—or deal with the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did hook up with.

Bryce didn’t know the other Haley even had a boyfriend. He was just trying to get his ex off his back. And now doesn't know what's more unbelievable, not only is—that he's he being blackmailed,  or that he's being blackmailed by an honor student. His little “hook up” was supposed to end his problems with girls, not create new ones. Not only that, but his new “girlfriend” has two overprotective brothers, three-legged dogs, her father mows grass at the country club, and she's…well, difficult. And different.

Besides, everyone knows that perfect boys never fall for imperfect girls…Sometimes, giving in is all a boy can do…Can something so fake turn into something real?

4 out out of 5 stars

Let me tell you, this book pulled me right in with the title. Blackmail? I mean who doesn't love a good blackmail? Haha just kidding, but this book did have a little bit of it but it was endearing and cute! I liked the whole concept of this honor student trapping a popular boy to do her bidding. I found it hilarious, and not because I was an honor student, well maybe just a little. It is fun to see the smart and sassy Haley come up with a plan to get her brothers off her back so she can finally start having a real boyfriend. Bryce was supposed to be the way in to all her other boyfriends but that might not have gone as Haley had planned. I liked that it is a slow but quick progress. They are not really keen on the idea of being together for real at first but I mean how can you not grow to love Haley when she is such a well written character.

Since the very beginning Haley had great things. She is smart and sass rolled into one! I absolutely loved this about her. Her quick answers and her personality make her a great character to love. I loved that she was able to blackmail Bryce. It gave her power. Now Bryce on the other hand, he was a bit hard to like at first. He was mean, rich, and a flirt. I liked that we could listen in to his thoughts and his point of view because this really made me start falling for him. If it weren't for his little thoughts I would of thought he didn't really like Haley. It was cute that Haley would pop into his head at some point and he would try to stop it.

It was a great book and I loved the dogs it involved. Haley and Bryce's best friends were also having a little love fest going on and I liked that it was shown. It made for a fun combination. The only thing I can complain about is the ending. I thought it ended to abruptly and there wasn't enough left to explain the remainder or advancement of their relationship. I would of liked if the book furthered things along for a little bit so I could know more about Haley and Bryce. Other than that I think Chris Cannon does an excellent job with her books. By the way, I read her other books and those are great too so check out Going Down in Flames. It is about dragons!
