Jason just wants a date with Harley.
Harley just wants a date with Trent.
Trent's still getting over Stephanie.

When Harley and Jason decide to fake date, they uncover a school of deceptions. Trent's got a secret, but so does Jason. And the more time Harley spends secretly kissing her fake boyfriend, the further she gets from her dreams with Trent.

Worst of all, Harley's mom is getting cozy with her hot massage therapy student, and even Harley's Reverend Dad can't fake not being bothered by it. But when the masks finally come off, can everyone handle the real truth?

    Harley didn't know what she was getting herself into when the id

    Harley didn't know what she was getting herself into when the idea came to her to fake date Jason. She figured that Trent would see her in a different light if she were to be dumped and that he would want to console her. But in just a few short days Harley's plan to get Trent starts becoming a little fuzzy the more time she spends with Jason. So when she does land that date with Trent...is he everything she ever thought he would be? Or will her feelings for Jason overcome her?




    Ok, so not going to ramble on like I sometimes do, but just state the facts. This book was too adorable and too sweet and too adorable. Oh wait I said that right? But GAH! It is adorable. I loved every bit of it. It was the perfect book for a lazy day at home and I easily read it in one day. Loved the story line even though some parts were a little easy to figure out...but still thought the author did a great job revealing those parts.




    I absolutely 100% adore Jason. I love how he never really gave up on Harley, even when it looked like he did. And Harley was a great character to follow as well. I enjoyed that she was a little awkward at first and actually allowed her friend to pretty much walk all over her in the beginning. Because as the book progressed we see her character, slowly but surely, growing more and more.




    Probably my only fault with the book…would love to have had Jason’s POV sprinkled in. And really it’s not a fault of the book…just a preference I would have liked. Oh to get into his head and see what he is really thinking. I am telling you people…this guy is perfect. Gremlin and all.
     
    So here is what I am thinking when I finished the book....umm, Moore you so need to continue on with these fabulous people. There is so much that could still be told about them. So I will be crossing my fingers hoping you will see this and decide 'hey, Mandy is so right. She is an absolute genius. There is more story to be told.' Right? I’m right aren't I?  ;)




    Ok, so I lied. I did ramble a bit, not a bunch, just a bit. But hope you got the jest of what I wanted to tell you about this book. It is a must read. And I hope you go grab yourself a copy soon!

    I think this is an excellent Mature teen book. It perfectly lays out many teenage issues. It's not graphic like many of the books for young adults, but still hits on relationship issues. It goes through the problems with rumors and listening to them...issues with coming out...how to decide who you like...peer pressure about drinking. However, the peer pressure about drinking doesn't get out of control but drinking does take place. I think this is a great book for a teen although, I have to admit, I REALLY enjoyed reading it. It was just the right amount of reality and emotion!

    He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not . . .

    He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not . . .

    It can be hard when you're a teenager with a crush. Not only do you have to compete with all those raging hormones, but it's easy to idolize someone that doesn't idolize you back. I remember those years, and man were they painful. I was so shy I had a hard time ordering a burger at McDonalds. How on earth could I talk to boys?

    In Leigh T. Moore's book, The Truth About Faking, Harley has a similar problem. She's obsessed with a boy named Trent, but is too scared to ask him out. Trent with the blue eyes and gorgeous blond hair. Trent who rescued her when she got hit in the head with a basketball. She's wanted to go out with him for an entire year, and now that he's broken up with Stephanie, this is her chance!

    Then Jason shows up and ruins everything, from her mother's car (that Jason smashes into at a red light in the first chapter) to her chance to go to the big dance with Trent. And Harley, who's a pastor's daughter, needs to find a way to forgive him. No, wait. Not just forgive him. Use him to help her get Trent!

    What happens when a beautiful, intelligent cheerleader pretends to like someone else to make another person jealous? It's a great premise, but it's only the tip of the iceberg. Because there's so much more going on in this small town than anyone would guess. There are secrets, hidden motives, and deeper issues the author delves into that made me think about how hard it is to fake who we really are. Yet, how often we do it anyway. To protect our parents. Our friends. Our community. This is a beautiful book.

    The Truth about Faking was a cute contemporary. Initially I wasn

    The Truth about Faking was a cute contemporary. Initially I wasn't the best fan of the main protagonist, Harley, especially with her mind set on Trent. Also, Jason was a bit needy and I didn't like how he wasn't playing it cool with the fake dating. Over time, Harley was more bearable but Jason just got better for me. He finally put his foot down and decided he didn't want to get played, which is when Harley finally sees the good thing in front of her. Towards the end, it definitely got more interesting plot wise.
    Plot wise, I really enjoyed how Leigh portrayed Harley's family life as a normal one with loving parents. We don't usually get that with parents from YA novels. The book mentions once or twice the way her parents look at each other and how much they love each other. These moments were the most memorable for me. Also, Harley's father is a Reverend and her mother is a therapist, so it was great to see how different people ended up together. However Harley's relationship with her mother is strained but it isn't due to childish things and it is explored in this book.
    At the beginning, this novel felt a bit cliched, however the ending was just so out there. I found it to be a bit bizarre but satisfying. Of course the people who should end up together do end up together but it is how they reached there in the end. Leigh wrote a wonderful novel, while I struggled a bit at the beginning, it was a very enjoyable novel overall. I recommend it to contemporary fans, especially fans of Jennifer Echols' The Boys Next Door.

    The Truth About Faking (TTAF as we call it on social networks) i

    The Truth About Faking (TTAF as we call it on social networks) is one of those books I'll read as an eBook and then get the paperback just to show it off on my shelf and to fellow readers. It's a fluffy and a cute book for teenage girls or girls in general. I know for sure some moms would like this.

    The book starts with Harley thrown in an accident where she meets a new addition to the town, Jason. He's cute and accurately described as 'hot' throughout the entire book. And when Harley gets home she's on the phone with her best friend, plotting how to get another guy from school, Trent, to ask her out. I found their plan to get Trent cute and funny. It made me think about what I would do to get a guy to ask me out. Anyways, things happen, Jason interferes and ruins Harley's chances with Trent and now Jason and Harley have to fake date to make Trent realize he wants her. I know, its a typical highschool move but it was so fun to read.

    Some characters were great and fun to read about, like Jason and Ricky, while the rest were just infuriating! I didn't like Shelly (Harley's best friend) much. She is so oblivious to Harley's feelings sometimes that she doesn't realize she's hurting her. Best friends are supposed to be attentive towards each other. Well, I'm just glad she stopped being infuriating towards the end. I also didn't like that woman who hates Harley's mom and constantly finds a way to ruin everything for her, just because of a job her husband didn't get. Childish much?

    I enjoyed reading about Harley, her life, her struggles, etc. Moore wrote a great character all girls can connect and relate to. I felt Harley's pain and happiness throughout the entire book and that connection just kept me reading all the way to the end.

    The best part of the book is the messages that it holds. The book had many messages, all telling you things like 'not to judge without knowing the whole story', 'somethings are really not what it seems', and my favorites would be : 'If you want something, get it. There's no point in wasting time pondering the what if's'. There are many more in the story but I'll let you guys figure them out yourselves.

    The Truth about Faking is a wonderful, fluffy, fun, and page-turning romance that'll make you squeal, laugh, smile, frown, cry and most of all, it'll make you turn those pages faster because it's just that good. Leigh Talbert Moore you are an awesome author! Don't stop writing! :)

    This is such a cute story! This is the kind of romance book I like to read! The description pretty much sums up the whole book. I can't say any more or I will give the whole thing away! The twist at the end is just the icing on the cake! You should really go pick up this book right now.



    In the opening of the book, we meet Harley. She is such a great character! We were all that age once, and its fun to reminisce of the days when we were boy crazy. You think you've found your prince only to discover our little girl minds have tricked us.



    I immediately fell in love with Jason! He is so sweet. The creek parts are my favorite!



    I think this book could easily become a series. I know I would love to get to know this little town better!

    Overall, I absolutely loved this book! And I think you will too!

    Right from the start i could ell this book was perfect for a rainy, friday night read. I love the characters. They are desribed so well!! All the romance scenes are cutsie and just make me do a mental awwwwww. Its a nice quick read (211 pages) and evoked just the right amount of emotion.

    Not bad at all

    Really good I liked how it taught the main character that karma really does exist and it does so in many differen ways I got through it in a day and it is a romance but I don't perfer them so for me this was still good and very realistic when ut came to teen life and love life

    This book was very good at hitting and relating to things that happen to everyone everyday

    This book doesn't just call to one perticular group of people so just about anyone could read this book and like it and relate to it

    Hopr every one enjoys and discovers something about theirselves while reading

    The Truth About Faking by Leigh Talbert Moore is another one of

    The Truth About Faking by Leigh Talbert Moore is another one of those books that I would have been crazy about in high school, and I still am today! Harley's innocent and fun. I love her attitude and the way she thinks. Jason came in with a bang, literally, and I was hooked. Harley's best friend drove me up a wall.. probably more than she should have for a fictional book, but there is a reason. I had a &quot;friend&quot; just like her in high school. I mean JUST like her. And like Harley, I tried to overlook it for a long time. So, those parts brought back a lot of bad memories, but my personal issues(haha!) didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of this book. There was a lot going on within the plot, and it really grabbed your attention. I love getting lost in high school love stories! This is the second book I've read by Leigh Talbert Moore and I'm definitely a fan. I'll be keeping my eye out for more of her books!

    The Truth About Faking by Leigh Talbert Moore was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
