Prove your skills as a boyfriend. Get them to see your true gender. Don’t fall in love.

When sixteen-year-old Noah starts fresh at a new school, he a plan to ensure the students see him as his true gender: join the school’s secretive The Borrow a Boyfriend Club, where members rent themselves out to their classmates for dates. The endless “accidental slip-ups” that plagued him at his last school will be a thing of the past once he joins the club; after all, it has “boy” right in the title.

But he fails the audition. Desperate, he strikes a deal with the club’s prickly president, Asher: he’ll help lead the nearly-bankrupt club to victory at the school’s fundraising dance competition, and Asher will allow Noah to prove his skills as a boyfriend in a series of tests that include romancing Asher himself.

As Noah passes test after test and his fake romance with Asher starts to feel surprisingly real, Noah is faced with a dilemma. If he fails to win the dance fundraiser the club will go bankrupt, and he’ll not only lose the new friends he’s made – the whole school will know he isn’t “boy enough.” But if Noah succeeds in securing the club their victory, he has to face the most important, unbreakable rule of the Borrow a Boyfriend Club: no real girlfriends (or boyfriends) allowed.

Could Noah’s relationship with Asher become something real? Noah must make a choice: keep the club afloat and his carefully guarded secret safe, or break the rules for a chance at love.
