Rating 2.5 stars
Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection.
Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom’s dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it’s what he wants too.
Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another—losing themselves in each other to forget about their pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.
Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.
I was only going to rate this book 2 stars but then the ending pushed it up. I found I did not really connect with either of the characters and that the book was not quite what i was expecting based on the blurb (or for that matter the happy looking cover). the ending however was touching and I may or may not have shed a few tears. that being said I am not sure if this one is something i would read again. although may still read other books in this series because i have liked this authors other works
“Everything’s not always black and white, Princess. Sometimes we have to do shit because there’s not another choice. Maybe you should think about that before you snub your nose at me.”
“Don’t cry, Princess. You know what they say. You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince.”
“The cup is half full, sunshine and flowers and I try to act like I agree, but really I’m pissed someone dumped out half of my drink.”
“If you’re cold I’m doing something wrong.”
the next book Facade (#2) is expected to be released on the 2nd of July
