Two people. One fake relationship. What could go wrong?
When virgin Shannon Travers gets fed up with her friends demanding that she find a boyfriend, she enlists the help of tattooed, mohawk-rocking graphic design student Jett. He’s more than happy to play along with their Fake Relationship, including the Ten Rules of Fake Dating that control-freak Shannon comes up with. Even if he likes to violate them. Repeatedly.
But what happens when Fake Dating starts to feel… not fake anymore? Will Shannon be willing to let go and embrace the first thing in her life that’s ever felt REAL?
I don't know why, but I just love the "fake relationship" romance trope. Gets me hooked every time. This was the second book by Chelsea M. Cameron I've read and I enjoyed it just as much as the first one. She's perfected the light, fluffy romance novel that's perfect for an afternoon escape. Nothing too heavy or serious to weigh it down. I loved Shannon, I loved Jett (and his name!) - they worked perfectly together. Shannon's friends and the reasons for the fake relationship were odd - why would she be friends with such horrible people? - but I've learned not to let the question such things in romance novels linger too long and just go with it. A predictable yet still satisfying HEA finish tops of a great read.
For Real: 4/5 stars
