Fake it Till You Make It is a fake dating romantic comedy. It is set in a small town and that is almost another character in itself. The premise is not exactly original, but I did like that there was a lot of emphasis on social media and how it affects our lives.
The story is told from the perspective of both Brady and Sloane. This is something I am seeing a lot more in romance and I have to say I like it. It is nice getting “both sides” of the story. I loved both Brady and Sloan. Sloane was just a normal girl, and it was sort of refreshing. Brady, as mentioned several times in the book, is a grumpy bartender, but he really does have a heart of gold. Brady and Solane together were great! I loved how Sloane stuck up for Brady.
I liked that this book did such a good job of getting that small-town vibe. Everyone knowing everything. Being told to go talk to so and so about this or that. This book was so cute and I highly recommend it. It is for those of you who liked To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
