Goodreads:  Is Christmas really the most wonderful time of the year? New Yorkers Robyn Lane and Sidney Bellows aren’t so sure.

Robyn has always dated struggling creative types. For once, her parents would love her to bring someone with health insurance and a 401(k) to their Chrismukkah celebration. Her actor boyfriend doesn’t qualify. While across town, Sidney’s professional life already belongs to her parents. She’s an attorney at her father’s law firm and she works tirelessly to keep her love life private. If she brings her lawyer boyfriend to their annual Christmas extravaganza, her parents will have the wedding planned by New Year’s Eve. 

A mutual friend playfully suggests they trade boyfriends for the holidays. The women share a laugh, but after copious amounts of wine, decide The Boyfriend Swap could be the perfect solution. This way, Robyn can show off her stable attorney boyfriend and Sidney’s high-society family will take no interest in her flakey actor beau.

It’s a brilliant plan—in theory. In practice—not so much. When Will turns out to be the boy-next-door Robyn crushed on hard throughout her teenage years, and Sidney’s family fawns all over Perry like he’s an Oscar-winner rather than a D-list wannabe, one thing is certain: The Boyfriend Swap might just change their lives forever.

Kritters Thoughts:  Robyn and Sidney end up at a happy hour/party of sorts and after a few adult beverages they are complaining about the upcoming holidays and how their families will react to their current boyfriends when they realize that they are dating what they think their families will see as their ideal, so why not swap for the holidays!

I loved the concept, it was so fun and I loved the execution!  Robyn and Sidney were just entertaining and I loved their reasoning for how their families will not approve of their partners and how a quick swap could make the holidays so much better for both.  I loved the twist that Robyn ends up knowing Will (not a spoiler its in the synopsis) and that adds some extra tension which I liked.  I also loved seeing Sidney be challenged by Perry Robyn's boyfriend and learning a lot about herself through it all.  

It was just a fun ride and perfect to get the holiday season started!  With it being just under 300 pages and easy to get into and a quick read, I would completely recommend adding it to your ereader for the holiday season.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
