We love a HEA, and Rachel delivers, but it's in the delivery that makes the book worth the read. You won't be disappointed with this one. Set in a world that most people will never live, we are given an in depth view that focus on the characters not just the setting. Ultimately whether you are a music star or a movie star, we all need to be loved for who we are, even if we are a bit prickly and controlling. Enjoy.
I love Spangler's earlier books and was excited to get my hands on a new one. I found it a little disappointing, it was too sentimental, too preachy - not her usual style at all. Plus love scenes were not as hot as 'Does she love you' & 'Close to home'.
I really liked the characters, the story line and most importantly the dialogue. I’ve read a few of Rachel’s book and this is by far the best in my opinion. The story flowed well with the right amount of up and downs and emotional hits. I only rate books 5 stars if I would re-read them, this I will definitely be reading more than once.
Actress, Cobie needs to change her image to land her ultimate acting role and she will go to any lengths to get it. Lila has been central to all the big scandals in the tabloids and has had her fair share of torrid affairs with famous men but she needs something big to promote the next stage in her career so why not try on a new sexual identity. Together, Cobie and Lila agree to have a fake relationship (or ‘fauxmance’ as Rachel Spangler calls it) to stir up the headlines while changing Cobie’s ‘good girl’ persona to a darker image. But when the romance is no longer fake and hearts are on the line, can they throw the currently plan away for a new one?
This was hands down my favourite Rachel Spangler book to date and could be stiff competition for ‘Book of 2018’. It’s sexy, enthralling but stays true to what Rachel Spangler does best and that’s writing phenomenal love stories. I’ve read a few ‘fauxmance’ novels over the past few months and this one is definitely one of my favourites so far.
As the reader I felt like I was taking the journey with the characters and felt every heartbreak and lovely moments along with Cobie and Lila. I want this novel to be adapted into a movie with Taylor Swift and Ellen Paige playing Lila and Cobie.
Rachel Spangler also wrote her best sex scenes to date in this novel because they weren’t only sexy but showed an intimate side of the characters that really built on their chemistry (not that it needed it… wow) but also their candidness, in the aftermath of making love, about their feelings during the fauxmance process.
This novel was everything I wanted and so much more. Rachel Spangler just keeps knocking them out of the park with her books getting better each and every time. 5 stars are no longer enough for books of this calibre.
