The Boy Friend by Mika Jolie













According to the law of attraction, women and men can't be friends.


Contrary to this myth, my friendship with Coriander Phillips does not rest on unrequited love or un-actualized lust. We've been inseparable since the day I pulled one of her pigtails and she punched me in the gut.


She's hilarious, fun to hang out with. Together, we're like peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and meatballs, wings and beer. A match made in heaven.


She's the bomb.


Did I mention she's smokin' hot? I've checked her out…maybe once or twice. Hey, I'm a guy.


Seriously, no awkwardness, no secret yearning for our relationship to escalate beyond the purely platonic. I'm the boy friend—the loyal shoulder she cries on, the dispenser of coffee, sympathy, hugs, advice, and affection with no expectations.


Until the invisible line between friends and lovers became blurry.

Now I want more. I want her.

All I have to do is convince her we can be more than friends.


If only it were that easy.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adding Mika Jolie to my one click list is the best decision I've ever made. Her characters are irreplaceable, her humor is irresistible and her stories are unforgettable. Reading her stories is like becoming a part of something special. She has a way of making a reader just as central to the story as the characters. Her style allowed The Boy Friend to become more than just a friends to lovers spiel. Cori and Dean became real, not just a couple of names on a page, but an investment of heart that was as alluring, heartwarming and witty as any romantic comedy. From clueless to priceless, The Boy Friend is a treasure worth discovering.
