The Fine Art of Faking It: Blue Moon, Volume 6 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Davis Gates. Naked. Tossing her a handful of orgasms like he was on a lust-themed parade float.
Innkeeper Eden has got it all. Well, mostly. She’s cornered the hospitality market in Blue Moon offering visitors a place to stay in her hippie-dippie hometown. Business is booming, she’s close—but not too close—to family, and she’s got her dogs and her friends to keep her company.
Unfortunately, she also shares a property line with the crush who broke her teenage heart.
Davis spends his days wrestling control of the family winery from his father’s semi-retired hands. He doesn’t have time for things like dating or dealing with his grudge-holding next-door neighbor. Besides, they’re just the latest generation to participate in their families’ 50-year feud.
When the Beautification Committee resorts to an unprecedented—and disastrous—matchmaking scheme, enemies Eden and Davis join forces to take them down. These two frenemies can survive being fake lovers for a few weeks if it means teaching their neighbors all’s not fair in love and war.

What I did like about this book was that it was written in chronological order and didn't have any flashbacks to tell the story. There was a cute second epilogue that dates back fifty years so we are able to discover what really started the feud.
When you get to book six (or seven if we count the prequel) in a series, you think you know what to expect. Well, this book just goes to show that you should expect the unexpected when it comes to Lucy Score and Blue Moon. Don’t get me wrong, it is still very much the same Blue Moon with its Beautification Committee, hippies, and characters we have grown to love. However, this book is a bit more removed from the Pierce family than the rest of the series has been, and it helped me see Blue Moon from a different angle. I fell in love all over again.
Eden and Davis are fantastic characters. I love absolutely everything about them. This book begins with a look at them in high school and the missed opportunity at a relationship that created the animosity that exists between these characters today. I loved getting a look back to see not only them, but so many of our favorite Mooners when they were younger. The beginning of their story was heartbreaking as it not only shaped their relationship, but gave so much insight on why they are the people they have grown to be today.
While both characters transform throughout this story, I felt every ounce of Eden’s transformation. After making one mistake as a heartbroken teen, she works so hard to prove to everyone that she is better than that one defining moment, but really, it seems she needs to prove it to herself. I fell hard for Eden. Total girl crush. She is hardworking, sincere, loyal, and so thoughtful. She is the kind of girl I want to be besties with. Watching her transform throughout this story in order to accept and go after what she truly wants made my heart happy.
And Davis. He is such a good guy through and through. He makes some bad choices because he is such a people pleaser, but he truly strives to be what everyone needs. Not only does he try to make everyone happy, he is also the guy who volunteers to help new families adjust to life in Blue Moon. The guy who gets caught up in romance. The guy who is willing to see through what others think to who people truly are. I loved watching him transform into the man who knows what he wants and works to make it happen. I loved that Eden brought out a confidence he didn’t even know he possessed to really become that man. When they were together, it was as if nothing else mattered. Their connection went beyond everything that happened in the past, and what others expected of them to the amazing possibilities of what could be should that spark be ignited.
And in true Blue Moon fashion, this book was hilarious. It wasn’t over-the-top crazy like Holding on to Chaos and the astrological apocalypse, but the characters are just as funny as ever! It wouldn’t be Blue Moon without shenanigans. From the family feud to an epic mistake that threatens to have half the town arrested, Blue Moon is still Blue Moon. We also get a lot of insight to the Beautification Committee in this book, and I loved it! While this book isn’t Pierce Family centered, we do check in with and get updates on all of our favorite Blue Moon characters.
This story is one you don’t want to miss. It is a story of redemption. It is a story of embracing life and what you want regardless of what others think. It is a story of second chances. It will take you from laughing to longing to a truly happily-ever-after. I have been a fan of Blue Moon from the start, but this may just be my new favorite.
An adventure, steamy romance, and a nice double epilogue. Read the series in order. So many emotions!

We haven’t really met Davis Gates in the previous books and Eden has been mentioned in a a couple of the other instalments so it’s quite a nice change to have this book be about new characters.
These two lead characters are from feuding families which go back generations but we learn quickly of the reason behind Eden Moody and Davis Gates’ reason for their personal rift. A teenage misunderstanding, controlling and overbearing parents lead to a momentous broken heart that bitterly continues fifteen years later. Unfortunately they are neighbours as their businesses sit near to each other.
The trouble is, Blye Moon’s matchmaking Beautification Committee have decided that Eden and Davis are destined to be together… but when a matchmaking scheme goes horribly wrong and almost kills Davis, Eden finds herself with a very unwelcome guest in her B&B.
Now, it wouldn’t be a very good romance novel if they didn’t fall into some enemies-to-friends-to-lovers action - but when their fake relationship starts to verge on real feelings, Eden struggles to put their past behind them. She’s warring with her internal emotions and instead of listening to her heart telling her to trust Davis, she allows her head and all those memories of how much he hurt her cloud her judgment.
It’s so obvious these two belong together, but Eden can’t admit her feelings are real, even when Davis promises her that his intentions and feelings for her aren’t just part of the fake relationship they’d created to throw the B.C off their scent.
This time, it’s Davis who ends up with a broken heart when Eden pushes him away and continues to deny the love she feels for him. However, absence most definitely makes the heart grow fonder and the old ‘you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone’ adage definitely comes into play.
What Eden has to do now is accept how she feels and make Davis realise that she does actually love him.
Great book with even more loveable characters coming into it. Davis is gorgeous inside and out and he’s the kind of guy I’d fall for in a second. Eden is great although a little annoying and you do just want to shake and say ‘just let the romance happen you stubborn woman.’
Thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot recommend this series enough. Loving it!!
The beautification committee are hysterical in their pursuit of matching town singles with each other.
Whenever I feel life is getting heavy, I know that I can escape to Blue Moon and allow the story to restore my good mood.
These books truly are the definition of feel good.
This sixth book introduces us to Eden and Davis, once almost high school sweetheats, now turned adult enemies.
The heroine, Eden Moody is a genuinely kind. She tries so hard to be a good neighbour and friend that she has neglected her love life. Davis is the one who got away, due to a feud between the two families that began long before they fell for each other in high school.
Davis is totally swoony and really proves himself to be the boy Eden imagined him to be back in high school.
The two of them together are fabulous, they deserve a fitting hea full of happiness.
The story itself is typically Blue Moon, full of antics and shenanigans on the way towards the happy ending.
Long may Lucy continue to revisit Blue Moon and give us these fun filled love stories. 💜
This is Eden and Davis's story. Childhood friends (well as much as they could be with feuding families) until an event pushed them apart for 15 years, now they are neighbours. Cue a fire, shenanigans, crazy parents, the Beautification Committee and a whole bunch events, you have a funny, sweet and eventful story that will keep you entertained.
Absolutely recommended as are all of Lucy Score's books.
