What a cute romance novel! I loved this little bit of levity in my week (which let’s be real, I’ve definitely been needing recently)! It took me no time at all to read this book and man am I glad I did! Thank you so much to NetGalley and Entangled: Amara for letting me read and review this book early!
Fake it Till You Make it 5/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads: Sloane De Carlo is going to have to move to Antarctica.
As if it wasn’t bad enough that she accidentally made her private blog very public, and all her innermost secrets and embarrassing moments are trending, now the entirety of the Internet is dying to know who her all-consuming, never-get-over-him crush “Guy” really is. She’s even got a literary agent dangling a book deal in front of her nose—but there’s a catch. She’ll have to get closure with “Guy” and give her story that pitch-perfect ending.
Too bad the real “Guy” is engaged to someone else. #Blessed
The only person in her teeny hometown of Arbor Bay who knows the truth is local bartender Brady Knox. And he’s not telling…for a price. He’ll pretend to be Sloane’s “Guy” if she’ll use her newfound Internet fame to bring more business to his struggling local bar. Brady’s always been a lone wolf, but there’s something about the pint-sized, supremely awkward, yet beautiful Sloane that charms him.
But keeping secrets in a small town like Arbor Bay isn’t easy. And Brady was never meant to be the guy for a pitch-perfect ending…
I loved, loved, loved this book! Like I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did! This book gave me very minor Hart of Dixie vibes, and I loved season 1 of that show (which was the only season I actually watched…) so that was an amazing added bonus. I really liked our main characters and all of our supporting characters- they really drove the story along and made it fun to read. I also am a sucker for the fake dating trope, so that definitely helped. I know it’s the first in the series but I don’t recognize the names of the characters for book two, so I’m definitely all for getting spin offs about some of my other favorite characters- maybe Dixon or Emma or even Carol. Fake it Till You Make it comes out on April 20th, so I’d definitely suggest grabbing a copy then!
