Faking It by Cora Carmack
Published by William Morrow Paperbacks
Mackenzie “Max” Miller has a problem. Her parents have arrived in town
for a surprise visit, and if they see her dyed hair, tattoos, and piercings,
they just might disown her. Even worse, they’re expecting to meet a nice,
wholesome boyfriend, not a guy named Mace who has a neck tattoo and
plays in a band. All her lies are about to come crashing down around her, but
then she meets Cade.
Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and to leave his problems behind in
Texas. So far though, he’s kept the problems and had very little opportunity
to take the stage. When Max approaches him in a coffee shop with a crazy
request to pretend to be her boyfriend, he agrees to play the part. But when
Cade plays the role a little too well, they’re forced to keep the ruse going.
And the more they fake the relationship, the more real it begins to feel.
