Farrah Rochon – The Boyfriend Project

Really enjoyed this. Liked that the friendship between Samiah, London, and Taylor got nearly equal billing with the romance plot. I also loved the portrayal of a Black woman crushing it in tech. (Rochon really nails the vibe of late-stage startup software shop culture, if not all the code-slinging details). As romances go, I thought this did an unusually good job of building up the obstacles to the relationship, so much so that the wrap-up felt not only a bit rushed to me, but also strained my credulity a smidge. But any nits don’t detract from my wanting to spend more time with this trio of friends in future novels.
