Charade (The Games Series #1)
by Nyrae Dawn (Goodreads Author)
Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom's dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it's what he wants too.
Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another—losing themselves in each other to forget about their pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.
Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.
First off WOW!
I will NOT be shy I friggin' LOVE Nyrae Dawn. I have loved every story that she has written and this one I think maybe my favorite. It was amazing. Second off Colt will be book Boyfriend as well because let's face it he is awesome.
For Colt and Chey their relationship starts as a farce but turns into so so so much more. It was a beautiful story about loss, family, friends, love and hope. We find family in many different forms and find love in the most unexpected places once you open up to the possibility of it. For Chey and Colt their family is not a conventional one but the ones they inherit is amazing. Family is what you make it blood is only a small detail of that equation.
Both Chey and Colt are so broken in their own ways yet together they seem to be the glue that puts them back together. Their love story is a beautiful yet painfully raw.
The part with Colt and his mom eviscerated me. After this book I have been telling anyone who will listen to me to read it but to have tissues near by. It is one of those stories that stays with you for days, weeks, months after.
It was a beautiful story and I can't wait to find out more in book 2 with Adrian
