Find Your Newest Book Boyfriend & Host a Well Met Book Club

Host a Well Met Book Club

It’s time for our second list of recommendations for the reading challenge. This month’s theme is very on-brand for February because we’ve rounded up our favorite book boyfriends! That’s right, this month we want you to read a romance novel. Why? Because this underrated genre has some negative connotations. Lots of people feel embarrassed about loving a good romantic storyline. We can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard that romance is a guilty pleasure or a vice. We can’t stand when people say that because it shows that they are ashamed or embarrassed about their reading choices. As firm believers in exploring all genres, we think you should be too! We recently forced our IRL book club to read Well Met, so we wanted to show you how to host a book club for Well Met or any other love story.  Read on to see how our naughty book club took shape and which book boyfriends we love the most.

Host a Well Met Book Club with all the best naughty foods. 😉

Hosting a Well Met Book Club

To introduce our book club to romance novels, we chose a love story that was cute, a little different (it takes place at a renaissance faire), and not-so steamy. Well Metir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=df4847872462e66bb4c998cfd6ea7e5f& cb=1580868148940 naturally came to mind because its a book that just makes you smile as you read it. The fact that you learn a little about renaissance faires too was an added bonus. The book club had less to do with the book and more to do with throwing a book club version of a bachelorette party!!

Galentine's Day book club decor

Hosting a Naughty Book Club

We decided to host the book club as a fun Galentine’s Day party. We added in naughty games, love notes, and fun food – all things you could do with any romance novel. So let’s dive into our naughty book club!

Galentine's day decor ideas for a Well Met Book Club

We went full Galentine’s day when it came to decor for this book club. We chose heart tablecloths, roses, heart plates and napkins, felt heart garlands (so we could reuse after the holiday), and red or pink paper decorations.

A naughty book club and the cutest drink markers ever.

For attire, we recommend wearing red or pink anything! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite book club-friendly clothing options that you won’t be afraid to wear should you meet up with that perfect real-life boyfriend of your own.

Mark your galentine's day glasses in style with these wine markers. A fizzy cocktail for your next book club.

We found hysterical naked men glass markers that we used for our cocktail station. They were easily the best purchase and they make so many different kinds!! We chose an easy, fun cocktail with only 2 ingredients – Champagne and cotton candy. Put them together and you get a colorfully fizzy drink that creates a moment of delight for everyone who takes a sip.

Other recipes we considered were: Buttery Nipple, Sex on the beach, Menage a trois, Afternoon delight, Silk panty Martini, Full Monty, and Climax.

Naughty book club food ideas - Hum"ass" and Just-the-Tips Buntini Boobies look just like little bra cakes!Licorice whips for your next 50 Shades book clubForbidden Fruit Salad - the perfect food for any naughty book club meeting.Pigs in a blanket and other naughty book club foods.

We kept the food on theme but cheap and easy too. We wanted to keep it nosh-friendly, so we chose little bites of everyone’s favorites and we added saucy names. Licorice Whips, Pigs in a Blanket, Forbidden Fruit Salad, Just the tips (veggies made to look like..ahem…male anatomy), Hum “ass” to dip the tips in, and little buntini’s with raspberries on top to make them look like boobs.

The girls in our book club had a riot laughing at the creative display even though what they ate was standard book club fare.

Love Notes, "That what she said", and other fun bachelorette party or naughty book club games.Love Notes, "That what she said", and other fun bachelorette party or naughty book club games.

Now, this is where the fun part of the naught book club really came out. We played quite a few naughty games like pin-the-junk on the hunk and some anatomy guessing games. WARNING. Those links are not for the faint of heart! Looking for a slightly less risqué game choice?

We also pulled out a game that’s similar to Cards Against Humanity called “That’s What She Said.” Our book club never got around to playing it, but we’ve played before and it always ends in giggles.

Looking for a G-rated activity? We made love notes for each member of our book club to open from a different book boyfriend. A fun little touch that can be as innocent or explicit as you want.

A naughty book club playlist? Yes, please!
Music playlist

When it came to designing a playlist for this evening, it was easy as pie! Thing really romantic love songs from John Legend, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Usher, and the like. You can listen to Spotify playlist we created here.

well met by jen delucaWell Met by Jen Delucair?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=186f5bd166a650738c54e5b0a8b2ef7a& cb=1580868301777

We just loved Simon in this story. He’s complicated in his everyday life, but when he embodies his renaissance faire character he brings the smolder.

get a life chloe brownGet a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbertir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=58256065e5aca35f5d6118e8f542be3b& cb=1580868667136

Chloe Brown is an unusual love story with a quirky and fun main character. She’s made a list of a way to “get a life” and who better to help than “red”? A handyman with tattoos, a motorcycle and a heart of gold.


Twilight by Stephanie Meyersir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=97d2fddda3e64db594b919f0a897fd91& cb=1580868368819

Edward Cullen – the vampire that started the fantasy book boyfriend trend. Knock it all you want, but Twilight gave us the best case of the butterflies we’ve felt since high school.

Beautiful DisasterBeautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuireir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=d965862d86e9851c09c3f65117e34772& cb=1580868506808

Travis is the ultimate bad-boy. Self-destructive, Tattoo-covered, but man, when he falls your heart will explode!

sea of tranquilitySea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

Nastya is a new girl at school who has a horrible past and she wants the person who took it from her to pay. Bennet is a 17-year-old boy who has lost everyone he has ever loved.  Bennet wants to be left alone but Nastya isn’t intimidated. Their love story is intense beyond their teenage years.

Bared to youCrossfire by Sylvia Dayir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=1f1f265fdd458a31af9ca7238c9dedcf& cb=1580868121053

Gideon Cross reminds me of Christian Grey. But the female lead, Eva Tramell, is no Ana Steele. Eva is just as messed up at Gideon – and it makes for a sizzling love story.

the hunger games by suzanne collinsHunger Games by Suzanne Collinsir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=172d6bb14ac99576abdaf33439031385& cb=1580867952931

Peeta or Gail. If you were Katniss, which leading man would you choose?

paper princess by erin wattPaper Princess by Erin Wattir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=3168e63176e24d00cf7cd81c96d93896& cb=1580867876278

Utterly addicting. I was in the middle of this series when we had out-of-town guests in for the weekend. I snuck it in every spare second I could. Reid is a complete ass and then a ride-or-die.

fallenFallen by Lauren Kateir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=cdb9e9f435a0dd47a942d97b03ab9fbd& cb=1580867628885

A fantasy about angels and demons on earth. I loved Luce and Daniel’s story and this complicated look at heaven and hell.

fifty shades trilogy bundle by e l james50 Shades of Grey by E.L. Jamesir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=bb845dea107ed8727d3574d9b5888594& cb=1580867539441

It’s Christian Grey. You’ve probably already read it, but I couldn’t leave Fifty out.

court of thorns and rosesCourt of Rose and Thorns by Sarah J. Maasir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=fae858174f26f30137b4bd1de7f92306& cb=1580867400498

Where my fantasy fans at? I’m usually not a huge fan of the genre BUT HOLY AMAZINGNESS BATMAN. I loved this entire series. I read almost 4,000 pages of it in a week and a half. yep. It’s that good.

fallen crest high by tijan

Fallen Crest High by Tijanir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=0ecfd498f105f13b086e508fe737ca8f& cb=1580867219692

Honestly, if I knew any of these kids in high school I would have steered clear. But isn’t reading for exploring things you wouldn’t dream of doing in real life? Maybe that’s why I love bad-boy Mason and his funny brother Logan.

outlander by diana gabaldonOutlander by Diana Gabaldonir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=cdd79c28fe4ba5ee5c04c7a56e4d4fe0& cb=1580867034835

Jamie Fraser is so heroic and so swoon-worthy, and so masculine…and so, so Scottish! His love for Claire knows no bounds. Already an Outlander Fan? Have you seen our list of books for Outlander Lovers?

Pride and Prejudice BNPride and Prejudice by Jane Austenir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=1bbab2a82462c4bc036e9b2f87eae217& cb=1580866991708

Mr. Darcy was probably the OG example of being mean to someone when you actually like them. Love this enemies-to-lovers classic.

anne of Green gablesAnne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomeryir?source=bk&t=beyondth06 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=41a6e4f090194a4d0b4478cb6395e67a& cb=1580866971452
