Publisher's Summary

USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Meagan Brandy delivers a new stand-alone fake-relationship romance about finding light when your world is dark and fighting for love when all seems lost.

Fake. That's what we are. That's what we agreed to be. So why does it feel so real?

I thought it would have been harder, convincing everyone our school's star receiver was mine and mine alone, but I was wrong. We played our parts so well that the lines between us began to blur until they disappeared completely.

The thing about pretending, though, is that someone's always better at it, and by the time I realized my mistake, there was no going back.

I fell for our lie. And then everything fell apart.

It turned out he and I were never playing the same game. He didn't have to break me to win. But he did it anyway.

This is a 98,000-word enemies-to-lovers complete stand-alone romance!

Fake It 'Til You Break It

Demi and Nico are neighbors. Their back yard connects. They are also both seniors in high school. They end up being partners in Chemistry. Demi likes another guy, and Nico has had some things in the past happen with this guy. Nico proposes for Demi to fake date him, to make the other guy fall for her.

Both Demi and Nico have some family issues that they work through during the book. I love how the characters have a chance to grow through the book. They learn to work through some of their problems and work with each other. Do they continue to fake it til one of them breaks? Or do they end up as more?

This book is told from duel point of views. I really like this reading style so you know what the both characters are thinking.

I really liked this book and would recommend it.

Nico and Demi

I adore this story. Love the repartee between the characters. Love the way the story developed and subsequently unfolded. I began reading the Brayshaw series and branched out to the author’s other works. So glad I did. Found an amazingly talented author to follow. Can’t wait to read whatever is published next! Listening to the audible is a must. Narration is perfection. It brings the story to life and truly enhances the enjoyment. Thoroughly entertaining.

If Beverly Hills 90210 was a teenage romance novel

Somehow I missed that the MCs in this book are all still in high school.
While that threw me for a loop, I did finish the book and found it to be okay.

The narration was solid, as I would expect from these 2 narrators.
It is the story itself that I found difficult to fully throw myself into. For me personally, I would have found it more realistic if these had been at the very least college students - with ages in their early 20's.

Not that the kids did anything in the story that many teenagers do - the sex, drinking etc are all typical.
The endless funds at their disposal, not so much. The idea that Nico is also this amazing lover is a bit hard to swallow too....

All in all, it was okay but it will not be one I listen to again.

Loved it

Okay but... this was SOOO good! I actually switched off between listening via audible and on my kindle, that’s how I know I’m reading something good! Great story telling, everything was so believable and I easily fell in love with the characters. This is the first book where I actually loved how the author talks about the main characters girl friends and doesn’t have them referred as “my girls.” They all had such fun and REAL personalities. Highly recommend!

Nico Sykes is life

I am obsessed with Nico Sykes. From the first point we met him in the book, I knew there was something about him that was special and nothing in the chapters that followed changed that for me. Jennifer Mack did a good job getting Nico’s essence, but it wasn’t until Christian Fox took over during the first chapter from Nico’s POV that my intrigue catapulted into a full blown obsession. There is something about a man who knows what he wants and will do whatever it takes to get it (even tricking a girl into dating him) that really gets me going. I liked Demi, especially the relationship that she had with her three best friends, but Nico truly made the book for me. The emotions that were exposed at different points of the book showed his depth of character and kept me rooting for him from beginning to end.

Best Male Narrator

This book was excellent and Christian fox is the best male narrator out there!! The two leads had so much chemistry and the writing was very good in character development.

Wow! - my favourite book and audio performance

Seriously love this book. Have read and listened to the brilliant audio performance Sooo many times. In my opinion, its Meagan Brandy's best. From the fun they had to the hurt they felt, every emotion was felt completely, when reading this book.
Nothing predictable in the story either, some unusual twists, and Seriously Sexy!
This has to be my very favourite book and I've read hundreds in the past year.
Thank you Meagan, Christian and Jennifer!

College romance

This was an enjoyable story, based on what I'm guessing is what would be college in the UK. The characters were likeable (except Alex) and I enjoyed the ending.

The only thing which bugged me a little is that this really should have been a dual narration because when Jennifer Mack narrates the male parts, it makes the male character sounds like a completely different character, not just in the way they talk but also their age! When she narrates Nic, he sounds like a bratty teenager, but when Christian narrates, he sounds like the broody, masculine jock he's supposed to be. However, regardless of this, I still enjoyed it.

1st Meagan Brandy book, but not the last...

Loved this book, yes there were bits that seemed a little improbably (like Nico not knowing about Demi’s toxic relationship with her mum, despite living next door to her forever - he finds out because he overhears an argument in the garden, you’d assume that there would have been plenty of these over the years). However, I would listen to this book over and over, just for the way Christian Fox brings Nico’s internal ramblings to life, so funny!

Easy read

Light easy, reading… I enjoyed the characters. At times the plot was a little predictable but you still waited in anticipation for the confirmation as you read.

Enjoyable!

This book was entertaining, from the fake relationship to slowly evolving into more. Seeing the two main Characters Demi and Nico grow as individuals and as a couple was an enjoyable read.
