Title: The Boyfriend Agreement
Author: Seven Steps
Series: St. Mary’s Academy #1
NEVER DATE YOUR FAKE BOYFRIEND’S BROTHER. TRUST ME.
Bella French is a high school junior with sky-high grades and a non-existent social calendar. So, when Jake Winstead, the most gorgeous, wealthy, and popular guy in school asks her to be his fake girlfriend, she makes a bold choice. She says, yes.
Now this wallflower is going from invisible to trending.
There’s just one problem. Jake’s very real twin brother, and Bella’s arch nemesis, Cole Winstead.
After two years of being at each other’s throats, Bella and Cole are paired up on a school project. Bella is determined to stay focused on completing the assignment but it’s hard when sparks are flying, and a boy she’s grown to hate starts to change his ways.
Stuck between two brothers, what will Bella do? Stay with Jake and ride the wave of popularity or give a beastly boy a second chance?
The Boyfriend Agreement is funny, emotional, and wonderfully romantic. Inspired by Beauty and the Beast, it’s a tale of one girl’s journey to help her friends and find love, all while discovering herself.

This book surprised me in more ways than one and I seriously was not expecting this!
So at first, I had a hard time deciding whether to rate this book a 3 star or a 4 star book. For a while, I was leaning more towards the 3 star rating because I really did not enjoy the way the entire school in the story was run on “popularity”.
It was constantly brought up and the entire background of the entire plot. I just found it kind of unrealistic and too exaggerated. There was also a lot of unexpected things to this plot that were quite the surprise.
When I read the title of this book, I thought it was going to be going in a completely different route than it actually did. But, towards the end of the book, it was really starting to win me over and of course the book boyfriend, Cole, made me love the story.
I don’t know how the book boyfriends do it, but they always seem to make me like the book the more they are around. The book did leave me on a bit of a cliff hanger, which was also unexpected since I thought was a stand alone, separate books in a series, but I’m really looking forward to it!

I just fell in love with Cole the further into the story I got! He is literally so sweet and all of his qualities and what he says is just perfect!
