Fake Out Reviews

  • Mirjana **DTR - Down to Read**
    Mar 20, 2018

    I have nothing but LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for this story. On the surface, it was just your run of the mill "dude learns he's into guys and finds love" tale; however, the way that it was told turned out to be utterly entertaining and completely charming. Maddox was the consummate...

    This is a new to me author, and the blurb had me very curious. This story was pretty much the world upside down for me..... When Maddox felt like he couldn't break up with his high school girlfriend, he told her he was gay, just so he could escape her....and she wouldn't ...

    5 Stars! I am a huge fan of the fake relationship trope. Like, major. I will read just about every book I come by with if it has the fake relationship trope going on. So of course I picked this one up as soon as I saw it on my feed and I loved it. Maddox is single and known fo...

    Maddox and Damon were amazing together. While this has a trope used many times (fake relationship), this one felt different to me. The person doing the pushing away was not who I expected. I was also happy that it didn?t last too long because it was impossible for them to stay away. ...

    ??????*Not for me, I guess*?????? Maddox ?Maddy? Colin O?Shay (23) and the pretend boyfriend he bribed, Damon ?Dik? Isaac King (how old?). Damon want to say no, as he has history with straight men, but Maddox has something he needs; soon to be a spo...

    This was a nice surprise. 3 stars for the Audiobook 4 stars for the story. The Audio-book was just ok. I enjoy Alexander Cendese and Iggy Tom narration, but here it was somehow a miss. There was no distinction between the Mc's voices, i was left confused at times trying to fig...

    4.5 stars. ?Sarcasm is great. You can say anything and pretend you?re joking. People think I?m hilarious when in reality I?m just an asshole.? This book was super cute!!! GAH!!! Almost everything I look for when I'm looking for my next M/M read. And let's apprecia...

    Get it here: Amazon US * Amazon UK I don't even know how to put into words how much I enjoyed this couple. Maddox and Damon were amazing together and I loved the dynamic of the whole semi-straight-guy-wants-gay-guy but gay-guy-rejects-straight-guy thing. It was really fun to s...

    *4,5 stars* This was an unexpected delight. Unexpected because this is a new author to me and I decided on the spur of the moment to go for it! (Thanks Christelle, for drawing my attention to this!) I really liked it for ... - the snarky humour - MCs I could relate to and who...

    DNF @ 50% ?Dinner?s almost ready, Mom says. Aunt Cheri stares at Mom in silent question. ?I have a vegan option for you,? she adds. Still a nutcase. Vegetarians, I can forgive. Vegans? Are they even real humans?? Nope. Not cool. Authors, why do you find it necess...

    4.5 STARS When I started this I really had no expectations. I mean the premise is completely whacko... Maddox always felt stifled in his hometown, and he needed out in a bad way. When his girlfriend starts with wedding talks, he tells her he's gay and moves far away. However, he's f...

    Despite the crazy set up, I could not put this book down. I read this in two sittings (had to break it up for dinner). Maddox and Damon were so cute together. Damon didn?t want to be Maddox?s experiment, so he kept pushing him away. It allows them to become friends first. When t...

    The blurb initially turned me off of this one. But then my friend, Todd, said the magic word - banter. Yeah, that's all it takes. I'm glad I did. It was so much better than I thought! And the fake boyfriend trope was executed really differently here - and only took up a small po...

    **Thank you, Ky, for this gift** Cherry on the cake : I enjoyed this book a lot. As Ariana mentioned in her review that reflects my opinion so well : ?This was an unexpected delight?. When 18, Maddox stupidly lied to his girlfriend by saying he was gay to break-up with her. Like...

    So hot and sweet!! I loved this GFY/?I guess I?m bi?/fake boyfriend story. I swear that the fake boyfriend trope is one of my favorite tropes ever! This book did a great job with it. It was funny, charming and rather well written. And look at that hottie on the cover, YUM!...

    Uy, qué sorpresa. No me gusta la trope del novio falso, ni en MM, ni en MF, el 90% de las veces me parece ridículo. Y además, no conocía a la autora. Pero, lo vi reseñado en GR por casualidad, está en KU y decidí probar, tenía ganas de algo ligero y parecía lo ideal, a pesar d...

    ***4.5 Stars*** I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! Such a fun read! Just the perfect amount of humor and steam, with a sprinkle of angst. I always used to think relationships meant compromising what you want for something somebody else wants, but I never realized that when you meet that ...

    I enjoyed the first half, light silly premise but likeable characters who get called on their nonsense. It did drag a bit with the talk of labels but a positive spin of accepting self, no denial and no evil-female-ex. Wish I'd stopped reading in the middle though. For me it went dow...

    I like this book a lot. Its a feel good happy book with very low angst. But for some reason it reminded me of #Junkie by Hebert Cambria- (Not in a bad way). When I was reading this, I have a smile on my face for most of the book. The pranks where hilarious. Damon sister is a lot crazy ...

    Not in the mood for a full review so I?ll summarize. ? Too slow-paced for my liking. The first time they had sex is at 70% mark which is way too long in my book. ? Maddox is really afraid of commitment and an all-round diva. Damon is a perfect boyfriend. The more I read contemp...

    I ? Dik and Irish ? ***4.5 stars easy*** So wonderful in all the right places and IMO not overly angsty. Really enjoyed this new to me author and cannot wait to see what awaits for the rest of the characters in this series! I might even read Stacy?s book if and when it co...

    This book was fun. I really loved how light-hearted Maddox was. The storyline held so much potential for all kinds of angst, but it never went there. Yes, there was a big misunderstanding in the middle, but it was solved almost immediately, so that didn?t really bother me. Maddox ...

    What a wonderful story! I got so much more than what I expected when I started this book. I was expecting to read about a fake relationship that near the end of the book developed into a genuine one, but here I read about a fake relationship that pretty soon became a real one and th...

    4.2 Stars So, yeah, my Bestie totally had it right when it came to this book: It's adorable, funny, sexy...and written really well. (Thanks Eugenia!) I loved that these guys - as much as it hurt or confused them - made the effort to communicate, and that they really brought out the ...

    So hot and sweet!! I loved this GFY/?I guess I?m bi?/fake boyfriend story. I swear that the fake boyfriend trope is one of my favorite tropes ever! This book did a great job with it. It was funny, charming and rather well written. And look at that hottie on the cover, YUM!...

    I enjoyed the first half, light silly premise but likeable characters who get called on their nonsense. It did drag a bit with the talk of labels but a positive spin of accepting self, no denial and no evil-female-ex. Wish I'd stopped reading in the middle though. For me it went dow...

    I like this book a lot. Its a feel good happy book with very low angst. But for some reason it reminded me of #Junkie by Hebert Cambria- (Not in a bad way). When I was reading this, I have a smile on my face for most of the book. The pranks where hilarious. Damon sister is a lot crazy ...

    Not in the mood for a full review so I?ll summarize. ? Too slow-paced for my liking. The first time they had sex is at 70% mark which is way too long in my book. ? Maddox is really afraid of commitment and an all-round diva. Damon is a perfect boyfriend. The more I read contemp...

    ??????*Not for me, I guess*?????? Maddox ?Maddy? Colin O?Shay (23) and the pretend boyfriend he bribed, Damon ?Dik? Isaac King (how old?). Damon want to say no, as he has history with straight men, but Maddox has something he needs; soon to be a spo...

    This was a nice surprise. 3 stars for the Audiobook 4 stars for the story. The Audio-book was just ok. I enjoy Alexander Cendese and Iggy Tom narration, but here it was somehow a miss. There was no distinction between the Mc's voices, i was left confused at times trying to fig...

    Get it here: Amazon US * Amazon UK I don't even know how to put into words how much I enjoyed this couple. Maddox and Damon were amazing together and I loved the dynamic of the whole semi-straight-guy-wants-gay-guy but gay-guy-rejects-straight-guy thing. It was really fun to s...

    I have nothing but LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for this story. On the surface, it was just your run of the mill "dude learns he's into guys and finds love" tale; however, the way that it was told turned out to be utterly entertaining and completely charming. Maddox was the consummate...

    This is a new to me author, and the blurb had me very curious. This story was pretty much the world upside down for me..... When Maddox felt like he couldn't break up with his high school girlfriend, he told her he was gay, just so he could escape her....and she wouldn't ...

    4.5 STARS When I started this I really had no expectations. I mean the premise is completely whacko... Maddox always felt stifled in his hometown, and he needed out in a bad way. When his girlfriend starts with wedding talks, he tells her he's gay and moves far away. However, he's f...

    Despite the crazy set up, I could not put this book down. I read this in two sittings (had to break it up for dinner). Maddox and Damon were so cute together. Damon didn?t want to be Maddox?s experiment, so he kept pushing him away. It allows them to become friends first. When t...

    The blurb initially turned me off of this one. But then my friend, Todd, said the magic word - banter. Yeah, that's all it takes. I'm glad I did. It was so much better than I thought! And the fake boyfriend trope was executed really differently here - and only took up a small po...

    **Thank you, Ky, for this gift** Cherry on the cake : I enjoyed this book a lot. As Ariana mentioned in her review that reflects my opinion so well : ?This was an unexpected delight?. When 18, Maddox stupidly lied to his girlfriend by saying he was gay to break-up with her. Like...

    So hot and sweet!! I loved this GFY/?I guess I?m bi?/fake boyfriend story. I swear that the fake boyfriend trope is one of my favorite tropes ever! This book did a great job with it. It was funny, charming and rather well written. And look at that hottie on the cover, YUM!...

    Uy, qué sorpresa. No me gusta la trope del novio falso, ni en MM, ni en MF, el 90% de las veces me parece ridículo. Y además, no conocía a la autora. Pero, lo vi reseñado en GR por casualidad, está en KU y decidí probar, tenía ganas de algo ligero y parecía lo ideal, a pesar d...

    ***4.5 Stars*** I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! Such a fun read! Just the perfect amount of humor and steam, with a sprinkle of angst. I always used to think relationships meant compromising what you want for something somebody else wants, but I never realized that when you meet that ...

    I enjoyed the first half, light silly premise but likeable characters who get called on their nonsense. It did drag a bit with the talk of labels but a positive spin of accepting self, no denial and no evil-female-ex. Wish I'd stopped reading in the middle though. For me it went dow...

    I like this book a lot. Its a feel good happy book with very low angst. But for some reason it reminded me of #Junkie by Hebert Cambria- (Not in a bad way). When I was reading this, I have a smile on my face for most of the book. The pranks where hilarious. Damon sister is a lot crazy ...

    Not in the mood for a full review so I?ll summarize. ? Too slow-paced for my liking. The first time they had sex is at 70% mark which is way too long in my book. ? Maddox is really afraid of commitment and an all-round diva. Damon is a perfect boyfriend. The more I read contemp...

    I ? Dik and Irish ? ***4.5 stars easy*** So wonderful in all the right places and IMO not overly angsty. Really enjoyed this new to me author and cannot wait to see what awaits for the rest of the characters in this series! I might even read Stacy?s book if and when it co...

    This book was fun. I really loved how light-hearted Maddox was. The storyline held so much potential for all kinds of angst, but it never went there. Yes, there was a big misunderstanding in the middle, but it was solved almost immediately, so that didn?t really bother me. Maddox ...

    What a wonderful story! I got so much more than what I expected when I started this book. I was expecting to read about a fake relationship that near the end of the book developed into a genuine one, but here I read about a fake relationship that pretty soon became a real one and th...

    Delicious absurd situations pass by one by one and it's funny and refreshing. Maddox needs a fake boyfriend, he wants to be present at his ex-girlfriend's wedding. It?s complicated ... to break up the relationship with the ex, he said he was gay and flew away... Now he needs a 'bo...

    This was a nice surprise. 3 stars for the Audiobook 4 stars for the story. The Audio-book was just ok. I enjoy Alexander Cendese and Iggy Tom narration, but here it was somehow a miss. There was no distinction between the Mc's voices, i was left confused at times trying to fig...

    *4,5 stars* This was an unexpected delight. Unexpected because this is a new author to me and I decided on the spur of the moment to go for it! (Thanks Christelle, for drawing my attention to this!) I really liked it for ... - the snarky humour - MCs I could relate to and who...

    4.5 STARS When I started this I really had no expectations. I mean the premise is completely whacko... Maddox always felt stifled in his hometown, and he needed out in a bad way. When his girlfriend starts with wedding talks, he tells her he's gay and moves far away. However, he's f...

    Despite the crazy set up, I could not put this book down. I read this in two sittings (had to break it up for dinner). Maddox and Damon were so cute together. Damon didn?t want to be Maddox?s experiment, so he kept pushing him away. It allows them to become friends first. When t...

    The blurb initially turned me off of this one. But then my friend, Todd, said the magic word - banter. Yeah, that's all it takes. I'm glad I did. It was so much better than I thought! And the fake boyfriend trope was executed really differently here - and only took up a small po...

    **Thank you, Ky, for this gift** Cherry on the cake : I enjoyed this book a lot. As Ariana mentioned in her review that reflects my opinion so well : ?This was an unexpected delight?. When 18, Maddox stupidly lied to his girlfriend by saying he was gay to break-up with her. Like...

    So hot and sweet!! I loved this GFY/?I guess I?m bi?/fake boyfriend story. I swear that the fake boyfriend trope is one of my favorite tropes ever! This book did a great job with it. It was funny, charming and rather well written. And look at that hottie on the cover, YUM!...

    Uy, qué sorpresa. No me gusta la trope del novio falso, ni en MM, ni en MF, el 90% de las veces me parece ridículo. Y además, no conocía a la autora. Pero, lo vi reseñado en GR por casualidad, está en KU y decidí probar, tenía ganas de algo ligero y parecía lo ideal, a pesar d...

    ***4.5 Stars*** I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! Such a fun read! Just the perfect amount of humor and steam, with a sprinkle of angst. I always used to think relationships meant compromising what you want for something somebody else wants, but I never realized that when you meet that ...

    I enjoyed the first half, light silly premise but likeable characters who get called on their nonsense. It did drag a bit with the talk of labels but a positive spin of accepting self, no denial and no evil-female-ex. Wish I'd stopped reading in the middle though. For me it went dow...

    I like this book a lot. Its a feel good happy book with very low angst. But for some reason it reminded me of #Junkie by Hebert Cambria- (Not in a bad way). When I was reading this, I have a smile on my face for most of the book. The pranks where hilarious. Damon sister is a lot crazy ...

    Not in the mood for a full review so I?ll summarize. ? Too slow-paced for my liking. The first time they had sex is at 70% mark which is way too long in my book. ? Maddox is really afraid of commitment and an all-round diva. Damon is a perfect boyfriend. The more I read contemp...

    This book was fun. I really loved how light-hearted Maddox was. The storyline held so much potential for all kinds of angst, but it never went there. Yes, there was a big misunderstanding in the middle, but it was solved almost immediately, so that didn?t really bother me. Maddox ...

    What a wonderful story! I got so much more than what I expected when I started this book. I was expecting to read about a fake relationship that near the end of the book developed into a genuine one, but here I read about a fake relationship that pretty soon became a real one and th...

    Maddox and Damon were amazing together. While this has a trope used many times (fake relationship), this one felt different to me. The person doing the pushing away was not who I expected. I was also happy that it didn?t last too long because it was impossible for them to stay away. ...

    ??????*Not for me, I guess*?????? Maddox ?Maddy? Colin O?Shay (23) and the pretend boyfriend he bribed, Damon ?Dik? Isaac King (how old?). Damon want to say no, as he has history with straight men, but Maddox has something he needs; soon to be a spo...

    This was a nice surprise. 3 stars for the Audiobook 4 stars for the story. The Audio-book was just ok. I enjoy Alexander Cendese and Iggy Tom narration, but here it was somehow a miss. There was no distinction between the Mc's voices, i was left confused at times trying to fig...

    4.5 stars. ?Sarcasm is great. You can say anything and pretend you?re joking. People think I?m hilarious when in reality I?m just an asshole.? This book was super cute!!! GAH!!! Almost everything I look for when I'm looking for my next M/M read. And let's apprecia...

    Get it here: Amazon US * Amazon UK I don't even know how to put into words how much I enjoyed this couple. Maddox and Damon were amazing together and I loved the dynamic of the whole semi-straight-guy-wants-gay-guy but gay-guy-rejects-straight-guy thing. It was really fun to s...

    *4,5 stars* This was an unexpected delight. Unexpected because this is a new author to me and I decided on the spur of the moment to go for it! (Thanks Christelle, for drawing my attention to this!) I really liked it for ... - the snarky humour - MCs I could relate to and who...

    I have nothing but LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for this story. On the surface, it was just your run of the mill "dude learns he's into guys and finds love" tale; however, the way that it was told turned out to be utterly entertaining and completely charming. Maddox was the consummate...

    DNF @ 50% ?Dinner?s almost ready, Mom says. Aunt Cheri stares at Mom in silent question. ?I have a vegan option for you,? she adds. Still a nutcase. Vegetarians, I can forgive. Vegans? Are they even real humans?? Nope. Not cool. Authors, why do you find it necess...

    4.5 STARS When I started this I really had no expectations. I mean the premise is completely whacko... Maddox always felt stifled in his hometown, and he needed out in a bad way. When his girlfriend starts with wedding talks, he tells her he's gay and moves far away. However, he's f...

    Despite the crazy set up, I could not put this book down. I read this in two sittings (had to break it up for dinner). Maddox and Damon were so cute together. Damon didn?t want to be Maddox?s experiment, so he kept pushing him away. It allows them to become friends first. When t...

    The blurb initially turned me off of this one. But then my friend, Todd, said the magic word - banter. Yeah, that's all it takes. I'm glad I did. It was so much better than I thought! And the fake boyfriend trope was executed really differently here - and only took up a small po...

    **Thank you, Ky, for this gift** Cherry on the cake : I enjoyed this book a lot. As Ariana mentioned in her review that reflects my opinion so well : ?This was an unexpected delight?. When 18, Maddox stupidly lied to his girlfriend by saying he was gay to break-up with her. Like...

    So hot and sweet!! I loved this GFY/?I guess I?m bi?/fake boyfriend story. I swear that the fake boyfriend trope is one of my favorite tropes ever! This book did a great job with it. It was funny, charming and rather well written. And look at that hottie on the cover, YUM!...

    Uy, qué sorpresa. No me gusta la trope del novio falso, ni en MM, ni en MF, el 90% de las veces me parece ridículo. Y además, no conocía a la autora. Pero, lo vi reseñado en GR por casualidad, está en KU y decidí probar, tenía ganas de algo ligero y parecía lo ideal, a pesar d...

    ***4.5 Stars*** I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! Such a fun read! Just the perfect amount of humor and steam, with a sprinkle of angst. I always used to think relationships meant compromising what you want for something somebody else wants, but I never realized that when you meet that ...

    I enjoyed the first half, light silly premise but likeable characters who get called on their nonsense. It did drag a bit with the talk of labels but a positive spin of accepting self, no denial and no evil-female-ex. Wish I'd stopped reading in the middle though. For me it went dow...

    I like this book a lot. Its a feel good happy book with very low angst. But for some reason it reminded me of #Junkie by Hebert Cambria- (Not in a bad way). When I was reading this, I have a smile on my face for most of the book. The pranks where hilarious. Damon sister is a lot crazy ...

    Not in the mood for a full review so I?ll summarize. ? Too slow-paced for my liking. The first time they had sex is at 70% mark which is way too long in my book. ? Maddox is really afraid of commitment and an all-round diva. Damon is a perfect boyfriend. The more I read contemp...
