Peek Inside Blackmail Boyfriend

Haley Patterson, honor student, has had a crush on popular, golden boy Bryce Colton for ages. But then she hears a rumor—Bryce is telling everyone that he hooked up with her. With Haley’s reputation taking a serious nose-dive, she gives Bryce a choice: be her boyfriend for a month, or face the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did hook up with. Now Bryce is being blackmailed by a girl who has two three-legged dogs and lives on the other side of town. Can something so fake turn into something real?

Haley Patterson has had a crush on golden boy Bryce Colton for ages. But when she hears a rumor that he hooked up with her, she gives him a choice: be her boyfriend for a month to 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, not only is he being blackmailed, he's being blackmailed by an honor student. He and his new “girlfriend” have zero in common. She’s…well, difficult. And different.

Can something so fake turn into something real?

So honestly: I expect this to be a cute & fluffy, was hoping this was well written - and I would have been happy.
But I kinda got more...

I never read anything by Cannon before. So I was pleased to discover I enjoyed her writing style. It's witty, sassy and fresh.
The plot was sweet, fun and while I e ...more

By Jacob February 27, 2019

This was a pretty good YA romance, though I don't quite buy Bryce as a romantic lead. Hayley is awesome. And Jane and Nathan were a hoot. Indeed, I'm really glad Cannon included Nathan as a contrast to Bryce because it evened out what could easily have been a classist mono-message.

I liked Hayley fro ...more

Well, I certainly did not expect this. To be honest, my expectations of this one were quite low since I wasn't the biggest fan of the author's other book Going Down in Flames. But this one surprised me. I ended up reading it in one sitting until 3am. I ...more

Adorable! That's the word I kept thinking while reading this one. From cupcakes to puppy dogs, this story was adorable. It's a light, enjoyable read that you can devour in an afternoon.

Characters are huge deal for me. If I don't like them, then I'm not gonna like the book, Sometimes I like one but n ...more

This book is funny with a capital "F."

She supposedly got busy this weekend and hooked up after a party with Bryce. The thing is Haley Patterson didn't, but another Haley did. The Haley that did give ...more

First of all, Bryce was a VERY shallow jerk.
And Hailey expected too much, especially since Bryce was so uncomfortable.

So what? It's okay. Hailey had her first boyfriend, Bryce had his first smart girlfriend not approved by his father.
They had to make their way slowly, had to fall. Had to pick each ...more

Original Review @ Naomi’s Reading Palace

The blurb of Blackmail Boyfriend grabbed my attention as soon as I read it, so I decided I had to grab it and try it for myself. I really enjoyed this Young Adult read, written by a new-to-me author, Chris Cannon. It was a fun and light read that I wa ...more

By Anjie July 29, 2015

This book was honestly so much fun to read. There wasn't much depth. It was a light and very entertaining book. I was looking for a contemporary read that was lighthearted and this book was just the what the doctor prescribed. The plot can be very predictable but there are still some things that sur ...more

I love this girl. Tough and hard. In another word "stubborn". Nice type girl for YA stories.

And the boy,

he is good, even being blackmailed (because of his own fault)

I enjoy this story so much...
