  • The Borrow a Boyfriend Club, Page Powars
    Delacorte Press, 9780593568583, September 12, 2023 (Young Adult)

    The Borrow a Boyfriend Club is an enemy-to-lovers rom-com at its finest. Filled with plenty of humorous and laugh-out loud antics, this book is sure to sweep you off your feet. The characters are authentic and complex as they all try to fit into high school as well as figuring out who they are.”

    —Jody Hardy, Mostly Books, Tucson, AZ

    The Borrow a Boyfriend Club is a fresh, heartfelt take on the classic rom-com with characters that are relatable and laughs that keep you turning the page. I was rooting for Noah (and Asher) from the first chapter!”

    —Liz Decker, Caprichos Books, ​​Ocean Pines, MD

    “Take the classic ‘enemy to lovers’ trope but make it adorable, heart wrenching, and funny. After top surgery, Noah Byrd transfers to a new school so he can finally feel like himself. He also wants to join a sports team to show how ‘manly’ he is now.  None of the sports teams are having tryouts and the only club open is the Football and Lamborghini Italian club. Can a club sound any more macho? Noah doesn’t think so! He finds the secret lair only to discover, it’s about setting up dates for other students and the president, Asher, doesn’t think Noah has what it takes. Proving himself to Asher just might be what Noah needs to feel like he’s enough.”

    —Kathy Burnette, Brain Lair Books, South Bend, IN
