Cheyenne and Colt's relationship may start off a bit rough.... (maybe cold's a better word?) but it's not long before you're clinging to every word, sucked in by the vortex that is their crazy relationship. One that makes you laugh....swoon....and root for them to open up and make it work. This book is about so much more than their love story too. These are real characters. With issues. And a plot line that brought tears to my eyes. If you liked What A Boy Wants & What A Boy Needs then you will LOVE this book. This is sorta like the college version of their stories. And I could not get enough Chey and Colt. I want more!!
The thing I love so much about Dawn is her talent with writing from the guy's perspective. I L.O.V.E.D. reading Colt's POV. If you hate "F" bombs then you may not love him as I do because it is his favorite word ;) but I'll take that over the "p" word any day. I just feel like Dawn nailed it... nailed his thoughts and speech....made me believe he's a real person....and made me want to get to know MORE about these two!! Dawn is definitely talented, to say the least.
If this is your 1st Nyrae Dawn book, I'm sure it won't be your last. When I see she or Liz Reinhardt or Steph Cambell or Tamara Webber have a new book out I'm like a kid on Christmas morning who was just told they're going to Disney world. Time stops and reading commences. I mean I was already in the midst of another book (that was good) that I was just reading when I had free time, but when I saw Charade was out I dropped that other book and ignored my poor family so I could read this. =) Yep, I'm a geek.
Would I recommend this? Of Course!
And I'll read it again for sure!
I don't have anything to pinpoint that I didn't like about the book, it just wasn't anything special for me. I had a hard time picturing what Chayenne and Colt looked like, and for some reason that don't make me love a book. I guess when you can picture the characters well it maked you feel closer to them.
As for the story in CHARADE it is good. It starts out with Chayenne walking in on her boyfriend with another girl, he trying to beg her to stay with him, but she stays strong and leaves him. That's when she meets Colt, and try to convince him to be her pretend boyfriend so her ex will see that she can easily move on. From there everything evolves, and Chayenne and Colt get to know each other better, and they share their problems and try to solve them together.
I didn't have any favorite characters in this book, but I was intrigued by Colt's roommate Adrian. That's the only reason for why I might pick up the sequel, because he's one of the main characters in it!
What made me finally one click Charade was Netgalley. I saw that they had added Façade, so what better motivation to finally read this one then to request the sequel. I’m glad I did.
A long time ago I read What a Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn. And while I like it, I felt the writing was amateur. The story was cute, but it just wasn’t what I expected after all the rave reviews I had read. The only reason I’m bringing that book up is because between then and now, her writing has improved drastically.
Charade was a much smoother story. There were some spelling errors which don’t usually bother me much, but the fact that I even noticed them tells you there was more than one.
Cheyenne is a really likable character. I felt so bad for her, everything she went through in the past as well as present is just wicked. Colt, he’s that sweet bad boy that every girl wants. But he’s really not all that bad, which I think it why I liked him so much. He acts like a dick at times, but Cheyenne is the type to call him out on it, and I loved that.
There are some scenes that made me a little misty eyed. Both Colt and Cheyenne have a ton of rough stuff to go through and I enjoyed watching them get closer as they worked through it together.
For a New Adult book, it was a winner in my book. There was just enough sexy times without drowning the plot. I really liked this one.
Cheyenne's relationship ends suddenly when she discovers her boyfriend has been cheating on her. She's humiliated and hurt and decides she can save face by creating a fake boyfriend. When she witnesses her ex and a stranger have a confrontation at a coffee shop, she pegs her stooge (or beard? I guess it could work either way). Enter Colt, her polar opposite and the type of guy she would never date. But her ex hugely dislikes Colt and it's the perfect way to both save face and get a little petty revenge. It's all in good fun and Colt, though at first refuses, eventually gives in motivated by an unspoken need to stand with Cheyenne.
I was really taken with Colt. He's sassy and tough and sexy with a foul mouth that did NOT turn me off. Cheyenne really brings out his softy side which was adorbs.
I really loved this opposite-attracts romance with such a fun story line. The fake boyfriend plot allowed for lots of tension between the two to build. When does the pretending stop and the real relationship begin?
In the background, there are also subplots involving their pasts and some childhood issues, along with Colt's mother's sickness. All in all it was sweet, poignant and sexy. I would reread this one for sure.
