The Boyfriend Experiment playlists

Without further ado, here is the music that is the backdrop for the novel and its two main characters, Beth Marshall and Sam Blackwood. (If you need a refresher on the story or the MCs, click here.) There are three playlists: one for the background mood of the novel, and one representing the musical tastes of my leads. The tracks are listed in alphabetical order, and sound great that way, but they can also be listened to on shuffle and sound just as good. Enjoy!
