Cade was a wonderful hero. He has a sense of humor, is intelligent and seems to have his head on straight. I really enjoyed reading about him. Mackenzie "Max," as the heroine, was the problem. As much as I enjoyed how unique she was as a character... the fun hair, tattoos, the musical interests... I just couldn't connect to her as the heroine. She was a very angry girl to spend time with. I don't like it when men slap women in my romances... and I don't like it when women slap men either (double standard NOT okay). What was the deal with this girl's aggression? I found it hard to believe a winner like Cade would stick around with Driving Miss Crazy. Cade didn't deserve it... just sayin'.
A follow up to Losing It, Faking It is a great take from both Max's and Cade's POV in first-person. For those who read Losing It and felt for poor Cade, well, he gets his. Max is relatable and I rooted for her all the way, even when she needed to be smacked upside the head. Eh, she's young. New Adult genre and all. Cade is a great hero and puts up with more than any other guy would. The back-stories were particularly interesting and this had a good conclusion. It was nice watching these two heal each other and fall in love.
This is one of those books where even though you figure they will end up together because it's a romance, you get SO WORRIED that they will never work things out! I was glued to the book toward the end!
I only wish this book was longer, honestly. I'm dying for a sequel, even a novella one like the other books have received.
Cade meets his complete opposite in McKenzie Miller, a.k.a. Max. She's an angry, pierced, tattooed bartender/dancer - trying to make it as a singer in her band. As Max deals with a rift between her family, she pretends to be in a relationship with Cade to help smooth the friction between her and her parents. Cade plays the perfect part and starts to steal Max's heart in the process.
Their relationship progresses into a heartfelt love story as Cade and Max learn how to cope with life's disappointments and tragedies. Although I enjoyed reading "Faking It," it did not surpass my love for the first book in this series, "Losing It." But, it still deserves a good rating of 3.5 Stars.
I admit it took me a while to sort out who Cade was since it had been so long since I read the first book, but after a few pages I remembered - the friend to Bliss who was secretly in love with her but waited too long to every voice his feelings. So now, Cade is still hiding behind his walls of his lost chance with Bliss, who is still with Garrick. We get a little bit of the two of them, but not much; after all Cade has to move on from his crush.
And then we meet Max. She is the feisty girl with tattoos, brightly dyed hair and dresses with a cool confidence. The only problem is that it's not confidence. She has baggage that has forced herself to live in fear of a future. Fear of being herself. But forced with the issue of having to see her parents she knows she can't introduce them to Mace; he is all sorts of bad-boy and loser - she sees him sitting there and a crazy idea forms in her head.
Cade is the perfect guy to meet her parents and surprisingly he goes along with it. But what turns out to be a role for few minutes turns into a few days. And now both of them are having trouble fighting their attraction. Growing closer as she distances herself from Mace.
But Cade has learned that fighting for what you want doesn't always go your way and Max knows that she is too unsure to ever commit. They push each other away and pull each other back in - both fighting to save the pieces of their heart that they still hold onto; afraid to risk it.
This was a cute & fun read that although had some predictability; the story was still well told and I was able to enjoy the characters. It's a quirky boy meets girl romance that has two characters both with their own hangups that keep them from ever chasing after what their hearts want. Both weighed down with anchors of the past, but finding a way to face the fear for a chance at something they never thought they deserved - something that scared the hell out of them.
