Faking it Release Day Launch - Review


Mackenzie “Max” Miller has a problem. Her parents have arrived in town for a surprise visit, and if they see her dyed hair, tattoos, and piercings, they just might disown her. Even worse, they’re expecting to meet a nice, wholesome boyfriend, not a guy named Mace who has a neck tattoo and plays in a band. All her lies are about to come crashing down around her, but then she meets Cade.

Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and to leave his problems behind in Texas. So far though, he’s kept the problems and had very little opportunity to take the stage. When Max approaches him in a coffee shop with a crazy request to pretend to be her boyfriend, he agrees to play the part. But when Cade plays the role a little too well, they’re forced to keep the ruse going. And the more they fake the relationship, the more real it begins to feel.

Cora Carmack is a twenty-something writer who likes to write about twenty-something characters. She's done a multitude of things in her life-- boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing). She enjoys placing her characters in the most awkward situations possible, and then trying to help them get a boyfriend out of it. Awkward people need love, too. Her first book, LOSING IT, is a New York Times and USA Today bestseller.

My Review...

Now, let's start with I LOVED Losing it so I was super excited to be able to read this book. In Losing it, Cade was a victim of unrequited love.  In this book he is still mourning the loss of the possibility of Bliss well until a firecracker in the form of Max rolls in and changes his world in every way possible. 

Cade is the 'perfect' boyfriend or really the 'perfect' everything.  If he can only be perfect than maybe he won't get hurt.

Max is the complete opposite tattooed, loud, outgoing and full of life with no regrets. Or so we think.

 Cade needs to move on and Max needs to hide who she really is so what better way than pretending to be a couple.  It is the perfect plan for both well..until feelings get involved. 
Now that emotions are involved their own personal demons are keeping them apart. At least Cade gets over his shit quick enough but Max argh!!!! I wanted to slap her for being so obtuse. Grrrrr.

Finding one's self and love have a funny way of creeping up on us when we least expect it.  Both are often what we think we don't want but are what we need. 

The instant ease between Max and Cade made their bond more warm and loving and felt real even though it was a really short time that they had been together. 
I loved this book and can't wait to find out more from the others with Kelsey's book which is coming out this October. 

4 thumbs up!
