Book Review: Boyfriend From Hell by E. Van Lowe

Boyfriend from Hell 
Title:  Boyfriend From Hell
Author:  E. Van Lowe
Publisher:  White Whisker Books
Publish Date:  9/10/11

Synopsis (from 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.

My Thoughts:  I was excited to get an ARC of this book to read and I wasn't disappointed.  It was a quick and fun read! 

Megan and her mom are great friends!  They have been since Megan's father left when Megan was little.  As Megan is getting older however, she is finding it harder to talk to her mom about certain boys.  Suze however wants to talk to Megan about dating, especially since Suze is starting to date again.  Megan tries to be supportive when Suze starts dating Armand but there is soon tension between mother and daughter. 

Then Megan starts her own relationship with Guy Matson and soon discovers that one of these men is the Devil himself and he is looking for a bride.  Megan must find a way to stop him before she or her mom ends up as his bride.

Megan is really annoying at first.  Seriously, I wanted to smack her more than once but her jealous, childish behaviour works for the story.  In the end, I really liked her. 

This is the first book in a series and it has me wanting to read more.  There is no huge cliffhanger at the end but there is enough to let you know that there is more to come.  It was a fun book to read and I easily read it in a few days.
