Previously reviewed: Losing It
Synopsis: Every girl likes a bad boy…
And Max’s current boyfriend is as bad as they come. She knows her family would freak if they saw his tattoos and piercings.
So when her parents turn up unannounced Max grabs the most wholesome guy she can to play her boyfriend.
But Cade Winston is so perfect that Max needs him to keep playing the part. And the more they have to fake their relationship, the harder it gets to just pretend.
200words (or less) review: Thank you Cora Carmack for providing the perfect solutions after a particularly stressful couple of weeks. If you need happy escapism this is the book for you.
I do not think you need to have read Losing It in order to enjoy Cade and Max’s story. There is a brief recap at the very beginning of book but it apart from explaining why Cade so readily agrees to Max’s charade it doesn’t really add much. I will say that on comparison Faking It wins, I thought both the writing and storytelling was better than the previous book.
The story is narrated in alternating chapters by Cade and Max. Both characters have a clear voice and Max makes a refreshing change from the more predicable protagonists in this genre. Cade is perfect, so much so that as much as I liked him I don’t actually believe he exists in the real world. But I don’t suppose that matters to much – I still loved reading Faking It.
If Cora Carmack continues to deliver books of this caliber I’ll be reading them for years to come.
