Overview

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.

The hot new, New Adult title from New York Times bestselling author of Losing It, Cora Carmack.

Loved it! Your witty writing style always gets me laughing. I really enjoyed the first book and I liked this one even more. I can't wait for the next story. Those reviewers that feel the need to tell EVERY SINGLE THING about the book - knock it off. You can leave a review and share YOUR opinion, not the entire plotline of the book. That helps no one. That said - I thought it was great and I can't wait to see more from this author!

Once again two reviews and both are plot spoilers, bragging how they got the book for free for their *honest* review. Its not a review when you tell everything that happens!!!!!! Thats a book report!!!!!!! You just ruined it for everyone that might have wanted to buy the book. Take your book reports to a blog somewhere and not here. Bn, pkease ban these plot spoilers, please. They are costing you money in lost sales. Who wants to buy a book when these ppl have already told the entire story?

Ms. Carmack has again done an extraordinary job of writing genuine humor and emotion into an exceptional read. The characters are well developed- flawed and beautiful- with rich relationships. Loved the sexual tension and the love scenes were both hot AND tasteful- not an easy task. I will read anything this author writes for as long as she's willing to write it. Thanks for making the read such a pleasure.

After reading Losing It and discovering I was most definitely not the target audience, I almost didn't read Faking It.  But, in the mood for a light and fun read (which Losing It was), I picked it up with no real expectations.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Faking It was that light and fun read, but the characters were much more developed and the plot more  believable.  The ending was rushed and perhaps a bit forced, but really once our main characters found their way to each other the book needed to wrap up.  All in all, a good beach read that you don't have to be 20something to enjoy.  And, if you're considering skipping Losing It and jumping straight to Faking It, go ahead.  It stands alone just fine.

This book was SO good! I wasn't sure how I felt about Cade's story at first because I loved Garrick and Bliss and didn't like Cade interfering with their relationship, but oh my goodness this book made me a HUGE Cade fan! I loved Cade and Max's story! I was as when it ended because I wanted more! I cannot wait for the next book in the series!

I loved "losing it" and "faking it" has surpassed my expectations for a second book. This book had heart and soul, some saucy bits, and so many parts that had me laughing out loud! Way to go Cora Carmack, I wish all romance books made me feel like this!

It's definitely not right for people to give the story away. You can't be much of a lit fan doing that. It only hurts the author because there is no need to purchase the book. For those who write reviews to complain there is no reason to give a one star review either. How does that help the author? To those who want to tell the whole story write a blog or join a bookclub. For the others who give one star reviews to complain write directly to bn about it Hoping this 5 star off sets one of many one star reviews this author recieved for no valid reason.

Cant tell you how many times i've not purchased a book because the reviews ruined the whole point of reading the thing. Perhaps B&N should monitor this a little better. I am just so amazed at how many individuals do not understand the distinction between a review and a book report. Since it appears this affliction is shared by so many, perhaps instructions should be given, after all it appears these reviewers can read, it's their ability to comprehend that appears to be lacking.

Enjoyed reading this book. It kept me interested and not wanting to put it down.  Loved the characters - flaws and all.   I thought the book was very heartfelt and liked the way Ms. Carmack developed the story.  Just the right amount of humor, tragedy,  and happiness.  Would recommend this book.

Not only was this book an easy read, it also had the not so typical love story that kept me turning page after page. The author flipped from telling the story from Max's prospective and then Cade's, which as the reader made it easier to really understand both characters. I personally enjoyed the book and would recommend it to others.

I loved losing it and this is sadly nothing like it.

Cora Carmack does it again! This time with feisty gal Max and sexy guy Cade. I loved this one even MORE than Losing It, and I didn't think that was possible. Everyone needs to read this book if they want to just kick back and ENJOY something. Best. Beach read. Ever.

I dived in Faking It right when I finished Losing It, its prequel, having heard so much praise for this one I was super excited to be getting into it, but unfortunately some parts didn't worked for me while others did. This one as its predecessor is a super funny and quickly read, these books are the perfect reads for when you want some brain candy but I for me Faking It loosed a little of its fun by giving their characters a complicated past, especially Max. Max is a supposed trouble maker because of *reasons* on her past and this weighted down my enjoyment on some parts of the story, this isn't a book problem more of a me problem, since I came into this one expecting only fun sexy times and got drama on a way that is pretty common among New Adult books. Nonetheless this was still super enjoyable on its fun and sexy parts, I was super happy when I discovered this one was about Cade because he was such a good guy on Losing It and I couldn't wait to see him get his happy ending. The faking dating trope is something that always works for me, it's always fun to see the couple struggling to keep things on the fake side but you already know there is no turning back, and oh boy all the banter and hilarious scenes this leads us to. In the end of the day this was a pretty good book that I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun, quickly and sexy read but be warmed this series does tend to be pretty predictable and more on the drama side at times.
