The Fill In Boyfriend by Kasie West- Official Synopsis

When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she’d been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it’s not the real Bradley she’s thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn’t even know. But tracking him down doesn’t mean they’re done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend’s graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

The Fill In Boyfriend by Kasie West- RWAT Take

Lets be honest. Diving into YA romance requires one to leave all the logic and reasoning outside. Same is for this book. Only step into this book if you have been going through some heavy ready and need a light read (like me) or you simply love and adore these cheesy romances.


This is the first time that i have ever indulged into an audiobook. I somehow never had felt audiobook as a true reading experience but boy oh boy when you suddenly feel pressed for time to read all your beloved books, you tend to look at audio books for help. Interestingly i found that audio books helped me remember plots in much better fashion (could be a problem of my receding memory and increasing age)


The book is as cheesy as it comes. No scratch that. The book is actually pretty sweet. Its an easy go book with cute little romance. One of the best part is that even though the basic plot developments are quite hard to digest, the book doesn’t actually overload with too much romance. The romance is pretty subtle and has its moments to it. Nothing seems forcefully to make it ultra cute (well nothing apart from the usual antics). Although i feel that to make things end faster, the book did a quick “pretty woman” antics which was quite obvious and eye roller moment but other than that i think it was pretty awesome

The book is a good breather book. Which is my definition of light and easy reads that don’t need you to think hard, analyze or de-analyze the plots. It is a harmless, cute romance best for a brunch read or if you adore romance at its most innocent form
