The Borrowed Boyfriend

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From New York Times Bestselling Author GINNY BAIRD, a heartfelt and hilarious tale about two lost souls finding their way to each other.

Allison Murphy spends a week in March with the same group of girlfriends each year. What started as a college spring break tradition morphed into an annual reunion, ultimately encompassing boyfriends and husbands. Only Allison hasn’t brought along a love interest in years, inspiring the others toward goodwill efforts at fixing her up. Faced with the prospect of yet another beach week mismatched with a virtual stranger, Allison’s roommate Kate suggests a shocking alternative. Allison can “borrow” Kate’s handsome and successful boyfriend for the trip. The trouble is Grady O’Brien stands for everything romantic idealist Allison is against. He’s a ruthless businessman who will stop at nothing to get ahead. What Allison doesn’t understand is just how far Grady is willing to go…

Wine industry entrepreneur Grady O’Brien knows an opportunity when he sees one. Allison Murphy runs a boutique wine label design company, while Grady heads up a firm that buys those sorts of businesses out. When Grady’s girlfriend unexpectedly must attend a conference and their vacation plans are cancelled, she encourages Grady to accompany Allison to the beach instead. Grady agrees to participate in the ruse of playing Allison’s boyfriend with a secret agenda in mind. He hopes to pave the way for acquiring Allison’s Bella Fortuna Wine Designs by winning favor with its pretty owner and her friends. The one thing Grady doesn’t count on losing in the bargain is his heart.

A Breath of Fresh Air!

This romantic comedy is a delightfully fun, yet meaningful story about Allison and Grady, who go on a vacation with three of Allison's college friends and their boyfriends to a Maine beach house, which has been a tradition amongst Allison's girlfriends since they met in college. In previous trips, her friends kept trying to match her up with a date for the week, but they were unsuccessful matches. This time, though, her roommate Kate, from where she lives in Marydale, Maryland, lends Allison her boyfriend for the trip - Kate has a business trip to San Francisco, after all. They don't really know each other, but agree to fake it. I devoured this book with warmth, smiles, and laughter. I highly recommend this heartwarming, fun book. Ginny Baird is a breath of fresh air!

Great book

The borrowed boyfriend

Allison needed a boyfriend to go with her for a week vacation with several of her friends. I really enjoyed this book, some comical parts. At first Grady was not going to do it but his current girlfriend Kate talked him and Allison into. They really have a interesting time. I really enjoyed the character of Grady, he is so sweet and caring. I received this book in exchange for a honest review.


I found this to be a very well written, sweet romance with an engaging storyline and a cast of characters that I thoroughly enjoyed spending an afternoon with. Ginny Baird's vivid description of the beautiful New England scenery, and a sumptuous waterfront dream home, transported me there standing amidst the characters and taking part in their fun anniversary week of reunion activities. I especially enjoyed the romance between Allison and Grady and the emotional connection between them which, for me, is essential to a memorable reading experience. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
