Boyfriend Goals | Riley Hart (Book Review)


Unusual. Quirky. Different. I’ve heard it all. I’ve accepted I’m not for everyone. Maybe not anyone.

When I find out I inherited a bookstore and apartment on a small East Coast island, I jump at the chance for a new life.

Turns out, I’ve also inherited a sexy, tattooed guy who not only rents the space next to my store for his tattoo parlor but my apartment too.

Did I mention he’s really hot?

And surprisingly sweet?


I wasn’t looking for a roommate, but it’s not like I can stay at Milo’s place while he’s banished to a hotel.

Our unlikely friendship is instant. According to Milo, we’re bestie goals.

And if he doesn’t wear pants at home, who am I to complain?

Milo’s not like anyone I’ve ever known. I like laughing and flirting with him. He’s adorably honest, eager, and sexier than he realizes.

Now I just have to figure out how to convince him that maybe it’s time for an upgrade from bestie to boyfriend goals.

How was it?

Lately, I’ve been very busy, I’ve had little to no time to myself and I’ve had to prioritize other things in my life. So this book came as a nice, refreshing surprise. Set in a small island town this book is a pure delight.

I absolutely loved Milo. As awkward and mild-mannered as he can be I loved how he stood up for himself and how daring he was. He’s first presented as odd and unusual but not in a demeaning way. The author did a great job at planting the seed of Milo’s autism before it was actually confirmed. There’s a nice balance between Milo’s place in the autism spectrum and his blooming relationship with Gideon.

As for Gideon, again the author does a great job at showing his character, the kind of man he is pretty much right away. To the point that I never doubted Milo’s gut feeling about him, I knew he was in safe hands.

Boyfriend Goals is a captivating inclusive story about two men who meet in a not-so-ideal way. This book has charm and heart and will probably end up being one of these books that I reread from time to time.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
