THE BOYFRIEND LIST (FOREVER LOVE #5) had me on an emotional roller coaster. There are so many people being introduced in a short amount of time but it was easy to follow who was with whom and what the relationship was between them. I read this book in less than twelve hours - I just couldn't put it down. The list of traits all boyfriends should have was an integral part of the story and something many women may consider creating before taking the plunge!
Moon's THE BOYFRIEND LIST held my interest from the beginning even though this is book five in a series that I haven't read before. There are families and friends, business discussions, horses, happiness, laughter, fears, sadness, tears, hurt, anger, romance and love. There are the lifestyles of the rich and famous that are flaunted and that not all are comfortable with - especially Jenna's extended family including her parents and one of her sisters. While Jenna was successful in her own right while pursuing her art business she was not anywhere near the level of success of those we meet. We learn she gets burned and is left holding the bag by her ex-boyfriend which causes her to doubt everything she does or says from then on. Of course it doesn't help that she never felt supported by her family since she was the artsy one. It also doesn't help that she had to run back home when her life came crashing down around her. Nate is a truly nice guy who has been fighting his attraction to Jenna for almost a year when she met him as a result of her childhood best friend's engagement to one of Nate's partners, Owen. I found Owen hard to like and felt his true colors came out when he and Nate got into it about his relationship with Jenna. I loved that part of the story was set in Italy and how romantic it was. There was a happily ever after and a lot of loose ends were tied up especially with the epilogue but I felt something more was needed. I'm happy to see the FOREVER LOVE STORY SERIES will continue with BECAUSE I LOVE YOU.
Moon is a new to me author and I will be adding her other books to my always growing TBR pile. If this is her caliber of writing I will be adding her to my list of must read authors. Since this is the first book I've read by her I have five others already being added to my list because I just found out that the sixth book is due out in November!
