Title: Faking It

Author: Cora

Published Date: June 4th 2013 



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.

My Review:

"Crying was for moments of such drastic pain that you had to let it out, had to shed your dead skin on your soul so that you could breathe."
All I can say is that I am completely in love with Golden Boy. I aspire to find a man like him and I won't give up. (Thanks Cora for completely ruining my dating life.)

"There was a beat. Another one of those moments when the winds shifted, time turned, and life started again in a new direction."
So this book is actually a reread (4 times). If that doesn't tell you how much I love this book, I don't know what will. Honestly, it's one of the few New Adult books out there that I absolutely love.
"As long as you open your eyes and keep going."
There are many reason why I love this book. 1) Cade is Texan (see there's already a connection there. We're meant to be. HAHA.) 2) FREAKING THEATRE (If you didn't know, I'm in theatre. So yea. It Reinforces our love. :} ) and 3) I love this plotline in any book ... the pretend boyfriend/girlfriend thing and then they end up falling in love. (I mean how do you not?! I know it's cheesy but it's so darn adorable, like pizza! and I really do love pizza.)
"Life isn't ever simple. not until you're dead."
The first time reading this book, I thought "no way can any book be better than Losing it." But (golden) boy, was I proven wrong. The whole atmosphere of this book is so much more lighter, and yet it's not. What Cade is going through is heck of lot, and Max's life is no different. Despite, their troubles and major (I mean MAJOR) differences, they form a connection.
"I'll take my chances against you fickle heart if it means it's mine." 
The way Cora Carmack wrote their story was amazing. She was able to go from fluff to serious moments with one line. There's a particular scene toward the middle where Cade is happy with Max and then *SPOILERS*. But the reader FEELS these emotions coursing through, and you're not just left in awe of what happened to the character, but also what those words did to you.
"'I'm glad you fought for me,'she said.'I'm glad you let me.'"
If you haven't read Losing It, then I highly suggest you do. And then read this beauty and talk to me because I need a reason to reread this book. Once you're at that point, why not read Finding Her (Side Note: it's just as good).
"The future had much to look forward too."
