My Rating: 5 Stars
You know that feeling that you get when you read a good book like Losing It, and even though you are really happy with the ending... you just feel sorry for 'the other guy'? Well that was me. I love Garrick and Bliss together, and I never had any doubts they would be together. But, I was still sad for Cade. He was such a great guy. Well now, Cade gets his own story... and man oh man what a story it is.
I absolutely adored Faking It. I had already fallen in love with Cora Carmack's writing, and this just reminded me how much I enjoyed it. I didn't know it was even possible, but somehow I managed to fall even more in love with Cade. And Max has got to be one of my favorite female characters. She is feisty, fun and strong.
Dual point of view books are my absolute favorite. It gives us the opportunity to be inside both character's heads. I loved seeing how Cade worked through his still lingering feelings for Bliss while he discovered what it really feels like to love. And Max is such a strong character, but the strength comes from all the walls around her. It was great to be able to see all of them start to crumble the closer she got to Cade.
It was so much fun how these two meet. The scenes that they 'act' in front of Max's parents are hilarious. There is a lot of banter between them, and of course it helps to throw in a fair bit of sexual tension. Which by the way, Cora Carmack delivers perfectly. There are some wonderfully steamy moments in Faking It.
So, what do we have to look forward to next in the Losing It series? We have Keeping Her, which is a Garrick and Bliss novella, that is due to be published on August 13 2013. Then after that we have Kelsey's story, Finding It. Kelsey is Bliss' best friend, who at the time of Faking it is travelling around Europe. I am really looking forward to both of these books, they are sure to be just as great.
