Why did I pick this book: The author requested that I review her book and I happily accepted. (I received a copy of the book for review purposes.)

Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read it every free chance I had and finished it in about a day. 

The Truth About Faking kept me interested and reading until the end. I did think the story line was bit predictable. However, it still had me surprised and wondering even though I thought I kind of knew how the plot would shake out. 

Harley was a sweet girl. She was rather naive and oblivious. Jason was a great guy but kind of a bad influence on Harley. He didn’t always respect her decisions and choices. That trait of Jason’s kind of bothered me. Harley’s parents were sweet, loving, and not afraid to show their love for one another. It was nice to read a YA book where the main character’s parents were dysfunctional in some way, shape, or form. I did feel bad for Shelly, Harley’s best friend. She just seemed really lost. 

Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book, especially if you like contemporary young adult books. 

Will I read it again: I will not read this book again. 

About the book – from the author: 

Jason just wants a date with Harley.

Harley just wants a date with Trent. 
Trent’s still getting over Stephanie.

When Harley and Jason decide to fake date, they uncover a school of deceptions. Trent’s got a secret, but so does Jason. And the more time Harley spends secretly kissing her fake boyfriend, the further she gets from her dreams with Trent. 

Worst of all, Harley’s mom is getting cozy with her hot massage therapy student, and even Harley’s Reverend Dad can’t fake not being bothered by it. But when the masks finally come off, can everyone handle the real truth?

Happy reading wherever you are and whenever you get a free chance!!!
