This book was so cute.
From time to time I really enjoy high-school romances, they give me all the nostalgic vibes and feels. However, when you move HS Romance to the New Adult category it can be difficult to get it right. Very often you see characters that are larger than life, absurdly rich, controlling the whole school, etc… and while that can be fun, it can get old very quickly too.
So, I was very pleasantly surprised that this wasn’t the case with Fake It ‘Til You Break It. This was a sort of down to earth story, where you can actually see (or remember lol) teenagers behaving the way they did in the book – refreshing.
Of course, you have the fake relationship that is nothing new under the sun. Guy likes girl, there’s a sort of absurd reason for them not to be together, they start a fake relationship that evolves to something real, Yadda yadda. But, the way the story is told is honestly ADORABLE.
The overall conflict was a bit exaggerated, and their parents were over the top (bad parenting much?). But other than that the miscommunication made sense, and I can see 18-year-olds (ish) behaving and talking like they did in the book. I loved all the characters, they were such a fun gang. And the chemistry between Nico and Demi? SWOONY.
Thank you Wildfire Marketing Solutions and Meagan Brandy for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
