**** This post did not go up as scheduled, my apologies to the author ****

Why this book?: Reviewing this book as part of the author's Book Lovin' Bitches ebook tour!

Disclaimer: The author provided me with a copy of "Boyfriend from Hell" in exchange for a fair and honest review.

About the book: Fifteen year-old Megan Barnett and her single mom, Suze, have a special relationship—they are friends, close friends, who do almost everything together. 

“But come on, guys, she’s my mother… Can I really tell her that while we’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Spider Man Three, I’m secretly undressing James Franco with my eyes? Of course not…” 

The special bond takes a turn for the worse when Suze decides to start dating again. She hasn’t had a man in her life since Megan’s father left ten years ago. 

Enter two mysterious young men, Megan’s new classmate, sinfully attractive bad boy, Guy Matson, and the dangerously handsome art dealer, Armando. Before long Megan and Suze both wind up in steamy relationships. But neither of the handsome pair is quite what he seems. In fact, one of them is Satan, with his sights set on a new bride. Megan has precious little time to figure out how to stop him. If she doesn’t, either Megan or Suze are quite literally going to HELL. 

"Boyfriend From Hell" is the first book in the Falling Angels Saga from the author of the gruesomely hilarious, "Never Slow Dance With A Zombie."

Review: I really enjoyed "Boyfriend from Hell" by E. Van Lowe. An interesting story with an equally interesting narrator, Megan, "Boyfriend from Hell" features a fresh story line that left me groaning or chuckling at all the right parts. The lengths Megan would go to try and keep her mother from dating felt dead on, not to mention creative. Alas, all that work is for naught, and Suze ends
up in a whirlwind romance with Armando.

There was a time or two when Megan felt and acted a little too old for her teenage years, but they were easily overshadowed by the actions and plans that only a fifteen year old could pull off.  The characters in "Boyfriend from Hell" really made the novel for me, and I was really excited to see that this novel is the first in a saga. I'll definitely be checking out the rest in the series as they release, as should you! Be sure to check out E. Van Lowe's "Boyfriend from Hell!" Or maybe try to win a copy in my two copy giveaway! Go HERE for the details and entry form!

Cover Loving: I really enjoy this cover. I think it's excellent and fits the novel.

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE (3.5/5). Good story, interesting premise, definitely something to check out.

Happy Reading!
