Review: Boyfriend From Hell by E.Van Lowe

Title: Boyfriend From Hell
Author: E. Van Lowe
Date Published: 8/30/11

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

My Rating: 3.5

My Review:

I really liked the premise of this story and from the synopsis was drawn in. 

The relationship between Megan and her mother was very touching. They had such a solid base and it is the type of relationship that I want to strive to have with my own daughter.

Megan definitely began pushing the envelope and even though there were sinister forces at play I really wanted to make her step back a couple of times. 

I don't feel like Guy had enough of a presence in this book. I can understand an author trying to drag it out, but still I felt like something was really missing in that aspect of the story. 

I just wish there was a bit more to this book on several levels. I am interested enough to see what happens in the next book, I hope to see growth from the author.
