Description:

A “brilliant, astonishing modern love story”* and an acclaimed literary debut… A young Cuban woman passes her nights dancing in a seedy Florida strip club; a Russian orphan loses everything, then builds a new and prosperous life for himself in New York; a woman struggles to maintain her dignity and hope after a life-changing accident—these are the three members of the troika whose story is told in this dazzling literary debut.

Their lives unexpectedly intertwined, Perla, Julian, and Sophie discover a world—a way of life—that forces them to challenge their definitions of commitment, love, and trust, a world that heals old wounds and inspires them to transform tragedy into beauty. “What a great gallop through the landscape of the human heart, what a brilliant, astonishing modern love story, what a beautiful pair of heroines, what an amazing journey from the plantains of Little Havana and a Fort Lauderdale strip club to Fifth Avenue and East Hampton, what a ride to a complex and satisfying redemption, what a glorious testimony to the way damage can become a lovely destiny, what a book!”—*Susan Cheever

The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

Very good book. I’m here like I want a Bec and Nate story now I wanted to know will Hayden (love this name by the way) which I wanted to name my future son lol. Any and Gia plan would work when Nate came over. I couldn’t stand the girl Jule she was not Gia friend, and her own friends were not her friends either. Smh.

I really liked this story not sure I got the part about Bradley in the description I assume he was going to tell her friends, but it was Jules wack self I believe that was jealous of Gia. And wanted what Gia had and even though Claire and Lancy were mad at her if they were her REAL friends, they would’ve forgiven her for the lie, she was telling. Plus it’s like the female turn a blind eye towards what the Jules girl was doing and ignored everything that Gia had done smh. I was glad when she mad new friends who actually cared.

Book Description:

When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she decides to do the unthinkable…convince the cute guy waiting to pick up his sister to pretend to be her boyfriend for the night. The task is simple: two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

The problem is that days after prom, she can’t stop thinking about her fill-in boyfriend. But can Gia turn her fake boyfriend into a real one without exposing her lie and possibly destroying her friendships and her newfound relationship?

Smartly observed and wonderfully romantic, Kasie West’s talent shines in this tale of one girl’s unexpected quest to find love…and possibly herself.
