A fun, flirty teen debut from Wattpad phenom Alex Light about a fake relationship and real love.

It’s been years since seventeen-year-old Becca Hart believed in true love. But when her former best friend teases her for not having had a boyfriend, Becca impulsively pretends she’s been secretly seeing someone.

Brett Wells has it all. As captain of the football team and one of the most popular guys in his school, he should have no problem finding someone to date, but he’s always been more focused on his future than who to bring to prom.

When he overhears Becca’s lie, Brett decides to step in and be the mystery guy. It’s the perfect solution: he gets people off his back for not having a meaningful relationship and she can keep up the ruse that she’s got a boyfriend.

Acting like the perfect couple isn’t easy, though, especially when you barely know the other person. But with Becca still picking up the pieces from when her world was blown apart years ago and Brett just barely holding his together now, they begin to realize they have more in common than they ever could have imagined.

When the line between what is pretend and what is real begins to blur, they're forced to answer the question: Is this fake romance the realest thing in either of their lives?

I had seen a few reviews that this was pure fluff and I was really excited to get into it. I liked Becca and Brett. She’s a bit stand off-ish and he’s fairly popular. They’re both smart and loyal and not nearly as different as they think they are. There’s a core group of characters and they’re all so supportive. And it was fairly refreshing to see parents so present, regardless of the thread of their story. Plot wise, it moved fast. There wasn’t any real time reference and by the end of the book, it seemed like only a couple of weeks had gone by. I did like the open communication and that the issues and conflict that came up didn’t last too long. The description on GR says it’s 416 pages and that doesn’t seem right. It was paced more like a novella and I would have loved a more fleshed out story. Overall, it was a quick and cute read. I wouldn’t say it was pure fluff, but it was a fun story. **Huge thanks to Harper Teen for providing the arc free of charge**
