Summary
Luc O'Donnell is tangentially―and reluctantly―famous. His rock-star parents split when he was young, and the father he's never met spent the next twenty years cruising in and out of rehab. Now that his dad's making a comeback, Luc's back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.

To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice normal relationship...and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. He's a barrister, an ethical vegetarian, and someone who has never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words, he’s perfect boyfriend material. Unfortunately, apart from being gay, single, and really really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust settles. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.

But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that's when you get used to someone...start falling for them...don't ever want to let them go.

Absolutely hilarious, relatable and wholesome. The narrator was able to narrate the story so wonderfully I was lost in the story the entire time.

Quite a number of very funny moments where I legitimately laughed, overall enjoyable, but couldn't really get myself to really strongly like Luc. Honestly, I wouldn't even blink if the main characters had been lesbians, because some disaster lesbians they are, except gay men. The narrator did an absolutely wonderful job, gave everyone their own distinctive voice and has a good and decent pace. Very pleasant to listen to,

A fresh, enjoyable, contemporary rom-com which gives its main and supporting characters some rare depth. the narration is excellent and brings the wide cast of characters to life with authentic accents from across the UK, not something I always get to hear in audiobooks.

My second Alexis Hall romantic comedy ( after "Absolutely Fabulous"). I love the author's style and characters are drawn beautifully. I personally could do without the "F" word, but what can you do? Luc's lack of self confidence is sometimes endearing nd sometimes infuriating but he is definitely loveable. Mr. Jameson, as narrator, added even more depth to the characters with his regional accents and was convincing both in his male and female voices. A wonderful audiobook!

Fantastic. It was a really good narrator and I almost cried at point. Loved all the characters.

Stunning! With heart, and laugh-out-loud wit, I didn't want it to end. More than a rom-com, author Alexis Hall uses these characters to deliver some unexpected depth. I cared so much about the characters in "Boyfriend Material" that they even turned up in my dream! And, highest praises for the flawless Narrator. He knew the material, prepared unique voices in regional accents, and found both the humor and the tenderness in his pacing. He was the perfect reader for this delightful tale.

Though this book was humorous, I found the story adolescent and predictable. Sorry, didn’t care for it.

I liked this book so much that I read it twice! I love the characters and the fake boyfriend trope gets me every time. The narrator is also wonderful, I love the different voices he gives each character! (And i really love that the same narrator narrates the second book)

Great narrator! The story line starts too slow and ends with a Hollywood ending but all around nice.

I've listened to this one at least 3 times over the past couple years, it's hands down my favorite. Luc is such a relatable character with realistic fears, doubts, and reactions to the world around him. Oliver is the perfect picture of how the "perfect man" is an impossible mantle, but you don't need to be perfect to be loved. Their story is so fun and wholesome, I love watching them fall for each other again and again. The side characters are a fun mix too, I hope they get more life in the upcoming sequel because I loved them all (and I hope Alex is still not understanding Luc's jokes). The narrator did a fantastic job, I couldn't imagine anyone else doing the narration for these lovely boys. I highly recommend this book to everyone!

Joe Jameson is the best narrator I have ever heard. I find myself looking for my next book based on Jameson’s list of narrated books now. Wow. What a pleasure! I had already read Boyfriend Material (absolutely loved it!) before I came across the audio version, and was just curious to hear the sample. Needless to say, I bought the audiobook version as well and have listened to it several times already. And forced other people to listen to it.
