“In The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise, super-smart, somewhat geeky Audrey McCarthy can’t wait to get out of high school. Her father’s death and the transformation of her one-time BFF, Blake Dawkins, into her worst nightmare have her longing for the new start college will bring.

But college takes money. So Audrey decides she has to win the competition for the best app designed by a high schooler—and the $200,000 that comes with it. She develops something she calls the Boyfriend App, and suddenly she’s the talk of the school and getting kissed by the hottest boys around. But can the Boyfriend App bring Audrey true love?”


A very interesting and very exciting story, I found myself intrigued with this plot.


The plot of the book, a girl who creates an app that can match you to the perfect guy with miles of you. The app ask you questions on what you like in a guy and them BAM, a match. I like how the idea of the app came along. A girl struggling with an idea and then she has it. Not to mention all the research that she does on the app. The author goes as far to intertwining her past to her app now. I think the connections it had to her father as well as certain bullies in her life made sense in the end.


The love interest in the book is awesome. I loved how even though she wanted an app to find the perfect boyfriend, the perfect guy was in front of her the entire time. I adored the emotions that flow in the book, settling in the reader for quite an ride. I think the fight with her feelings for the guy along with settle past wrongs to right, gives the reader the right amount of  charm .

An excellent  story the captures a past and a future, The Boyfriend App is great. The interesting idea of finding love at the touch of app is just itching at your fingers. Fantastic and witty, The Boyfriend App is wonderful!

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!



  1. This sounds much more in depth than I was imagining it to be. I Thought it was going to be a fluffy, cutesy type book. I’m glad to know that there is good emotion in it. Great review!

    This sounds really cute. I have heard mixed things about it but for a light read it could be fun and mindless.

    Been trying to decide if this one is too young for me as an adult reader of YA, but it sounds really cute. Great review!
