Every girl likes a bad boy...

And Max’s current boyfriend is as bad as they come. She knows her family would freak if they saw his tattoos and piercings.

So when her parents turn up unannounced Max grabs the most wholesome guy she can to play her boyfriend.

But Cade Winston is so perfect that Max needs him to keep playing the part. And the more they have to fake their relationship, the harder it gets to just pretend…

 I received a review copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I kind of like the Losing It series covers as they match but have different models on the front which is in keeping with each of the books as they have different main characters. I think that the guy in the cover is a good likeness of Cade but Max has more tattoos but apart from that she's not too bad liking of her.

I was so excited about reading Faking It after reading and loving the first book Losing It but in the end I felt a little let down by Faking It as I didn't love it nearly as much as the first book. Don't get me wrong it is a nice book to read with some good moments but when I read a book I want more than nice I want it to grab me and never let go and Faking It just doesn't do that. I liked that it was a good boy meeting the bad girl as a lot of books it's the other way round so it made a nice change. The chemistry between Max and Cade I could tell there was something there but I didn't like the way in which Max treated Cade especially after the huge favour he was doing for her. For me I felt the ending was a little too rushed with no real closure, I would have preferred it if it went further into the future than just a few months especially with Max's past relationships are to go by. I didn't feel like there was much of a happy ending it just felt a bit too forced.

I loved Cade but the rest I only liked, although I did love seeing more from Bliss and Garrick. Max seems to have a couple of different personalities as she comes across as this strong, independent woman who doesn't care about what people think about her unless those people are her parents. When around her parents Max was somebody completely different but I did understand why this was especially after we find out about her past. Cade was such a sweet character and I felt so sorry for him at times as he seemed to have terrible luck with who he has feelings for.

Overall, a nice enough read but it just didn't live up to the first book but I will continue with this series in hope that the rest are as good as the first book.
