Overview

Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection.

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.

    LOVED IT!!!!

    This book is a wonderful book if you are looking for a story of friendship and love. I was kind of hesitant about how good it would be with only 134 pages, but it had me captured in every moment!!!! I loved it, and it will definitely make your heart feel for the characters! I love my purchase:)

    Amazing storyline!

    Great storyline!! A few quotation marks missing, some words misspelled, and there is a few lines that you have to reread before you realize the author wrote it that way. Also, its not very specific on who is always talking, but the storyline is fantastic. I would still reccomend this book to anyone! It is totally unexpecting.

    What a great story!

    I didn't expect so much inside such a short book. These characters were so well developed and the story so real, packed with lots of different emotions. Beautiful.

    Sad and sweet story

    I was not getting in touch with the story. It was not something new or old but it had an emotional drawing that kept me reading which at the end was glad I fnished it. I could not understand the Chey issue but the more I read the more involved I became. Worth the read! Funny, realistic emotional life issues and a love story that had a very sweet ending. Glad I read it!

    This was a great story of love, loss, and healing together. My only complaints: 1. I wish it was longer. 2. And this story desperately needed editing, although it didn't detract from its greatness.

    Another great story from this author.

    I loved this book so much.  I am a big fan of Nyrae Dawn's and I

    I loved this book so much.  I am a big fan of Nyrae Dawn's and I have to say that Charade has to be one of my most favorite books that she has written so far.  Cheyenne is a freshman in college, a college that she is attending because of her boyfriend Greg, who is really the only person she knows there... a boyfriend that she walked in on with anther girl.  She seems like she has it all together, at least that is what it looks like on the outside, but Chey has a past that has left her deeply scarred and wounded, no matter what her outward appearances portray.  Colt, and I so love Colt, he is an obvious bad boy, doesn't care what people think, has a cocky attitude, and is oh so very hot.  Despite his hard demeanor, he has a soft and fiercely loyal side, and does everything he can to take care of his dying mother, even granting her her wish that he attend college.  Colt has had a hard life to, very hard, and the way he lives and the things he does to survive and pay the bills aren't really what he wants, but he has bought into the lie that he will never amount to much.  When Cheyenne makes a proposition to Colt to pose as her boyfriend in order to make Greg jealous, even offering to pay him, he thinks she is nuts, a spoiled princess, but soon finds himself a willing participant in this charade.




    What starts out as a game, soon escalates into something so much more.  Chey and Colt both begin to slowly realize that what they are doing and feeling is anything but fake, and sometimes they don't know how to handle it, especially Colt.  Colt realizes that this princess is so much more than he thought, and Chey realizes that this bad boy has a heart of gold.  They have good times, bad times, and some really, really difficult times, each helping the other through some of the darkest moments they have ever faced, each helping the other to heal and to realize what love really is.  I so loved Chey and Colt's story.  It sucks you in and captures you from beginning to end.  Nyrae Dawn has written these characters in such as way that I felt totally connected with them, their lives, their hopes, their sadness, their joy.  I hurt when they hurt, laughed when they laughed, and cried when they cried.  The romance was wonderful, and I loved the ending of the book also.  If you are a contemporary romance fan, this new adult novel is something that stands out from the crowd and something I would definitely recommend checking out.
