Goodreads synopsis:


It’s a classic story: Boy meets girl, girl breaks boy’s heart, boy pretends to be gay to get back at girl, girl outs boy to everyone on Facebook…

Okay, maybe it’s not that classic. But it’s what happened to me.

When I bump into my cheating ex and catch sight of the moon-sized rock on her finger, there’s only one option to save face: pretend to be dating my gay best friend, Declan.

And when she outs me on Facebook and everyone I know sees it, there’s still only one option: keep pretending to be dating Declan.

And when Declan and I have to kiss to keep up the ruse and it turns out there’s actually a spark between us (more like a blazing inferno, if truth be told) there’s once again only one option…

My rating: 3.75🌟

This is the story of Declan and Heath’s journey from being best friends to fake lovers to lovers.

This is a typical fake dating story where at first Heath was just trying to save face to her former girlfriend that’s why he pretended to be in a relationship with his best friend Declan. Trying to prove to everyone, friends and family, that they’re together, they did a lot of mushy things in front of their friends and family. Eventually they fell for each other.

The writing was easy to read and get into. It was a quick read and the conflict isn’t that heavy and this one ended okay for me. I’m quite interested with the stories of the other secondary characters, especially Declan’s side of the family.

It was just a bit confusing for me whenever I’m reading their POVs. This one is a dual POV kind of book. I just think that their POVs are a bit similar that’s why at times I needed to double check the chapter headers to make sure who’s POV I’m currently in.

This was an okay read and a short one. 🙂

Finally, my reading slump is gone. 🙂
