I received this book at BEA, from Omnific Publishing, in exchange for an honest review.
After an endless string of bad dates and a generally pathetic love life, Grace park and her friends decide to boycott men for six weeks. With a fantastic pair of shoes on the line for the woman who makes it to the end without breaking any rules, the competition gets fierce. Sparks fly a few days into the bet when Grace and her friends cross paths with a sexy bartender named Michael Andris who happens to have a little bet of his own going with his friends…In this hilarious debut novel, Victoria Michaels brings us a colorful and relatable cast of characters. She sends them on a sweet and sexy escapade as they sidestop one booby trap after another, manage the best of misguided intentions, and exert a whole lot of willpower and self control as they race down the path to true love. Winning isn’t everything…or is it?

Boycotts & Barflies is such a fun read. It’s one of those books that I wish I could read for the first time again because I know that it made me laugh many times and it was overall a good book.
The story follows two groups of friends, 3 guys and 3 gals. The even number is just a bit convenient but that’s very easy to overlook because all of the characters are great…although it does take a little longer to fall for certain ones. I loved seeing them all interact and their banter is one of things I enjoyed most about the book. I also really liked seeing Grace grow and become a more confident person.
Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5
