    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. ...

    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...

    ??????*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...

    *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...

    **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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    "I found it- where I'm supposed to be. It's with you." yep, maddox found where he's supposed to be and what he's supposed to be. surprise surprise: ok technically that gif isn't 100% true but i'm not going to spoil the story for you. what i will say, is that this book was fck...

    I'm both intrigued by this blurb (fake relationship + sexual exploration) and a little hesitant. I think I"m gonna have to do a little digging to decide. I've never read this author before, and that blurb sounds like this could be full of all kinds of cliched stereotypes. Off to ...

    3.5 Stars I really enjoyed Maddox and Damon as a couple. I am a sucker for the fake dating trope and this love story was a really fun twist on the that theme. There are lots of twists in this tale I don't want to give way but in the end it is a sweet and fun romance with good dep...

    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. ...

    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...

    ??????*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...

    *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...

    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 adored this book! It had one of my favorite tropes, fake/pretend relationship. Maddox and Damon had great chemistry from the start, they were hot and adorable together, and the angst was low in this. It was a fun, entertaining read. Maddox is not good with confrontation. Or commi...

    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!...
