When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.
The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.
Have I told you Kasie West is my favorite author? She never disappoints me, I love all of her books, include The Fill In Boyfriend.
Gia is a popular girl. She manages to look organized and perfect, while it surely isn't. Like, she was dumped by her boyfriend in a parking lot a moment before she entered prom. She found a decent guy to be the fill in boyfriend because she promised her friends that her bf would show up. Ofcourse she was saved from prom, but her lie couldn't be left when the fill in boyfriend entered her life.
Her relationship with the fill in boyfriend is smoothly cute. It's also funny how she managed to save her lies. I also love how Beth, the fill in boyfriend's sister involved their relationship. They all are so funny!
This book also mentioned friendship and family problems that actually happen a lot. Gia questioned about her friendship, how she was being left from the group. I guess this issue is felt by some teenagers these days,even the adult and I love how Kasie wrapped it realistic well.
