Jason just wants a date with Harley.
Harley just wants a date with Trent.
Trent's still getting over Stephanie.

When Harley and Jason decide to fake date, they uncover a school of deceptions. Trent's got a secret, but so does Jason. And the more time Harley spends secretly kissing her fake boyfriend, the further she gets from her dreams with Trent.

Worst of all, Harley's mom is getting cozy with her hot massage therapy student, and even Harley's Reverend Dad can't fake not being bothered by it. But when the masks finally come off, can everyone handle the real truth?
I was really disappointed by The Truth About Faking. I was expecting a fun, sweet, romantic comedy type book, but what I got wasn't that. It tried at being it, but in my mind it completely failed. The romance happened way too fast to be believed, and their chemistry just really wasn't all that. With either boy. :/

Jason was way too annoying, and Trent was from the very beginning just not the right guy. There's a big twist involving Trent, but sadly it was very unsurprising and way before it came out it was totally obvious, know, sometimes I like a little mystery.

Harley herself wasn't all that great of a character. She was flat and uninteresting from the beginning, and she managed to fall in love with a boy that she was "fake-dating" pretty dang quickly. It was pretty close to insta-love. They didn't actually spend much time kissing (as opposed to the description, maybe once or twice when they were "in love"), and most of the time that they spent together was focused on her dating Trent, which was just strange.

All in all, The Truth About Faking was a huge disappointment for me, but if it sounds like something you'll like you should give it a shot.
