Review: Faking It

Faking It
By:  Cora Cormack

Rating:  5 Cogs


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.


I'm a huge fan of Losing It, so once I finished that book, I was completely ready to hear Cade's story.  Cade is such a sweetheart in the first book, that I was desperate to read about him meeting his own special lady (other than Bliss).  I'm so impressed by Max!  She's completely perfect for Cade with her rocker attitude. 

When Max's facade of strength finally collapses, I was heartbroken by painful past, but I swooned at Cade's strength carrying her through her rough times. 

I feel that my favourite part of this book is the fact that it's a convenience relationship.  I've always enjoyed marriage of convenience stories, and although this isn't a marriage, I loved the fact that Cade and Max met so randomly with her asking him to pretend to be her boyfriend for her family.  This reminded me a lot of One Week Girlfriend, which I absolutely loved.

This book is a fantastic installment of the series, causing me to immediately buy the previous novella.  This is a definite read, and an author to keep your eye on!
