Boyfriend Material

Alexis Hall’s Boyfriend Material is quite possibly the best romantic comedy I’ve ever read.  Almost every page produced a smile, a grin, a snort or a full-out belly-laugh – and I honestly can’t remember the last time I read a book that produced full on giggling of the sort that made my fami ...
