Perhaps you have read the iconic novel Red White & Royal Blue? If you’ve been craving a gay romance of the same caliber, you need to read Boyfriend Material! Luc O’Donnell, son of two famous (and divorced) musicians, desperately needs to save his reputation in the press to keep his job. He’s badgered by a friend into dating an uptight barrister, Oliver Blackwood, a rather wholesome choice to aid in this mission. These two couldn’t be more different, but soon the lines from putting on an act to genuine affection begin to blur. The amount of times this novel made me genuinely laugh is also a massive plus. Authentically swoon-worthy and hilarious!
