35. Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao
Chloe’s parents want her to marry the richest but also sleaziest boy in their family’s close knit Asian-American circle, so in order to stop them from forcing her to accept his proposal she tells them she has another boyfriend. Only she doesn’t, so she rents a boyfriend from a company designed to exactly for the purpose of impressing Asian parents with a fake boyfriend. This being a romance of course Drew, her fake boyfriend, and Chloe fall in love for real. This was an enjoyable read and good story based on a well worn trope. I give it a 7 out of 10.
