Beauty and the Book Boyfriend by KM Galvin was released on March 28, 2017. I heard a lot about this book leading up to the release, both positive and negative. Hearing all about this book made me wonder and I had to find out for myself. The story is about Bell who is an author that is very self conscious and avoids the publicity all while not having any friends. She goes on book tour as the main character in her book along with the book boyfriend that her fans voted for. I found this book to be an ok read. I felt that the points of view kept changing so much that I could not keep up at times. The characters could use more back story to add more depth. While I understand that some readers really liked this book, I have to say I am not one of them. I am willing to read more works from this author. **I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
