Faking It (Losing it #2) by Cora Carmack- 5/5 Stars

Faking It, Cora Carmack
Hello Sunnies 🌞
Faking it was a LOT better than Losing it. Losing it was good, I gave a 4 star rating after all, but Faking it was a perfect HEA. 

It stars off with Cade, Bliss's best friend from Losing it. I really liked him in the first book and although this is a stand alone I do believe the book was as good as it was because we already knew so much about Cade. It helped made the story more rounded.
Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and do his master's degree. But he misses Bliss, still aches for her. On top of that his acting career is not really going anywhere. 

Max is a crazy girl full of tattoos, piercings, and an angry yet bright personality. She is a struggling musician hiding her true self from her parents in Philadelphia. They have no idea of the kind of life she leaves and most certainly never got to see the art in her body, they don't even know she has them.

Max and Cade meet at a coffee shop. Her parents call and tell her they are in town and would love to meet her perfect boyfriend, not a guy called Mace with a neck tattoo that drinks too much, plays in a band, and has a terrible personality. So she asks Cade to step in and fake a relationship with her for two days. Perfect Cade wins over her parents and for a number of reasons (not gonna spoil it for you all) they keep the ruse going after those two days.

I loved that we had a 'good' guy and a 'bad' girl. It is so often the opposite in NA.  That was refreshing. The dual POV was also fun, it gives the reader a look into both their minds and hearts.
The story is also about grief and acceptance, not just a love. And in the end, I think that is what made it extra special.

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
