Okay, so usually I love Hollyfield’s work. I am all about some humor, love, and happy endings. However, something is off here. Maybe it is a lack of back story on the guy’s part, Lexie might need some AA meetings, and I will happily drive her to and fro. I was slugging through the book. I didn’t have the “I gotta find out what happens” moment.
The guy came off as a bouncer feel: tough walled, tough love, either you are in or out. Another thing, the insta-relationship: you got to do this for me, and never leave my house, after just meeting her. To me it came off kinda controlling.
*sits down and sighs*
Now, let’s end on the good note!
Vibrator scene, so funny… that. That would happen to me, and I am surprised it hasn’t already. Although my kiddo might have found my toy and brought it outside to me while I was retrieving the mail. *wave hi to the neighbor*
I did enjoy the letter, it was so sweet. I also think it gave more depth to the main character of what type of person he is.
I will always adore Jess, as a writer, and as a person. She knows how to make her words flow, the scenes are painted in front of you as you read her stories. I always love that, and her humor.
My biggest issue with this book was the character development. While Hunter was a hermit, avoiding social situations and people in general until Lexi forced him out of his self-imposed isolation, he was also a domineering alpha. While this definitely made for a yummy hero, I never really got a handle on Hunter’s personality and that kept me from fully connecting with him. Lexi, on the other hand, had a very distinctive personality. She came across as wild and carefree with an underlying insecurity that reared its head in her oftentimes-childish behavior. Honestly, this character just wasn’t for me. I couldn’t get myself to feel for her, even as we got to know her a little more. Her voice was too much at times and the humor felt forced. Had this character been given more depth I think it would have helped balance out her extreme personality but as the character remained relatively superficial, I just couldn’t get there with Lexi.
Admittedly, Faking It took some time for me to get into. The story moved slowly and I’d even go so far as to say that there were portions of this book that didn’t seem to move the story forward at all. The majority of the action and drama was concentrated into the end of the novel and I definitely think the story would have benefited from having that part of the timeline expanded, as it was for me, the most enjoyable part of the story. One of the highlights of the book was Chrissy. As far as best friends go, she’s the real deal. She made me grin with her good-natured teasing and warmed my heart with her unwavering support, not to mention there was that fiercely protective side that came out and made me want to high five her. Chrissy was the hidden gem of this story. J.D. Hollyfield’s writing definitely has a ton of potential. Faking It was sprinkled with moments of emotional honesty that left my heart hopeful and there was plenty of quote-worthy prose to enjoy. I look forward to seeing this author continue to grow and develop her craft in the future.
Lexi was an adorable character. If you loved Becca from Sophia Kinsella's Shopoholic series, you'll love Lexi Hall. She was funny, wild, and really made a mess of things. Her character always made me smile and at times I hurt for her when life got a little too hard.
"It's like I'm in high school again and my first crush just complimented my Trapper Keeper."
Hunter James was intense. I'm a sucker for serious, flawed, and secretive heroes and Hunter was all of these. Despite his desire to be a reclusive, brooding artist, Lexi brought him out of his world and turned it upside down.
"You just bewilder me is all. I have never in my existence been so entranced by someone's entire being."
To say these two had chemistry is an understatement.
"I don't know what you're doing to me, but I need to consume every part of you."
Whenever they were around each other they were explosive. It was a very steamy read that had me flipping the pages as quickly as I could.
"Then you must know the effect kissing you has on a man. It's like heaven and hell intertwined."
If you're looking for a story that has it all, Faking It will deliver in more ways than you can imagine. I highly recommend this steamy, hilarious book!
