Faking It (Losing It #2)
by Cora Carmack
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.

This book is the second book in the series but can be read as a standalone.
I have a confession to make.I haven't read Losing It. I have it on my kindle and I started reading it but for some reason I just gave up on it. I think it had something to do with the fact that I was just too embarrassed with what had happened with Bliss or maybe it had something to do with the fact that my exams started and I just didn't have the time.
I still haven't read Losing It(Book #1) but after finishing Faking It, I'm seriously considering reading Losing It ASAP.
I've not had so much fun while reading a book for some time now! Faking it is HILARIOUS but it has it's emotional moments as well.I know there have been a string of New Adult novels coming out recently but Faking It stands out because
- the book is hilarious in parts
- the main male character is NOT a jerk/bad boy/sex crazed maniac
- the female is a bad-ass with tattoos
- it deals with issues but not in a preachy manner
Max and Cade seem like polar opposites but they make a great team. I loved the scenes in which Max's parents made an appearance because then the FUN began.
By the time they finished their cups of coffee,my parents would probably be begging to trade and have Cade as their child. ~ From E-ARC
Cade was a character I loved. I think I'm fed up of the "bad boys who treat females
Max's wit and sarcastic demeanor made me fall in love with her.There were some things I wasn't a huge fan of but they were necessary for character growth and development.
Overall, Faking it was fun and emotional at the same time. I'm definitely going to keep my eyes out for the sequel Finding It.
Note: I just got an email from US publicist stating that Faking It and Losing It ecopies are available at discount for a limited time.
