There's Gwen, the matriarch who likes to escape reality, Eve the oldest daughter who has a slight identity problem (she has two), Nadine, the granddaughter who's ready to follow in the family footsteps as soon as she can find a set t...more

A really fun start and hilarious characters. This makes me think of that vamp series… What was the name? Ah yeah! Argeneau. Now I managed to read the first one (barely). What reminds me of that is the amount of characters this book has. Now Mrs...more
Oh my goodness...where shall I start with this never gonna give this book enough credit review?!
"Faking It" started off as one of those (and I'm sure I'm not alone in this) books that I picked up a couple times and just put down because I just wasn't clicking with the characters at that point in time. Well let me say...I am so mad at myself for doing that...but so happy at the same time because it took me longer to read it!!! I started really reading this book yesterday mo...more
This book was not as funny, clever, sexy or charming as Crusie's prior novels. Matilda Goodnight is disappointing and not at all what I had in mind for Davy. Her sister with split personalities, cross-dressing ex-brother-in-law, a couple of smart ass teenagers and a hit man did make t...more
This book…was very “meh” for me. The characters never clicked for me – and I don’t think I laughed until page 214. I can’t say the book was bad…it was just ok.
The beginning was rather busy and…felt rather crowded. I wasn’t sure who was who and what was what. Tilda was great and I liked her…but I didn’t feel very much for her. To be honest, I felt a little disappointed in Davy. One of the things I’ve liked the most about Crusie’s books were the depth she g
There were two things that gave me trouble with this book; one small and one large. The small is just that there are an awful lot of characters introduced right off the bat, including a woman named Clea, two female characters who go by multiple female names, a guy called Rabbit and a dog named Steve. It was just plain hard to keep everyone straight for a while.
Be sure to read "Welcome to Tempation" before you read this book. While the story stands on it's own, you get much insight about the character Davey, who is Matilda's love interest in this story.
It's a great story about a family that has owned an art gallery for generations and has quite a few secrets to hide. There's certainly not a lack of subject matter for a great story with some great supporting characters. The most int...more
This book is the sequel to Welcome To Temptation, which was about Sophie and Phin. Davy had a smaller role in that book and now this book is about him. The plot didn't make sense to me. Someone paints pictures and signs them with a fake name in the way someone uses a "pen name" to write books. The painter in this story felt she might go to jail if anyone found out. That didn't make sense to me since the name she signed wasn't a name used by anyone else. Davy is a reformed...more
This book is not about women faking orgasms, because that's what I thought until I read the description LOL. Matilda Goodnight is the youngest daughter in her family, and yet she's the one who takes care of everyone. When her niece Nadine ac...more
I waited several months to read Faking It after finishing Welcome to Temptation, because I just wasn't sure I wanted to visit the Dempsey family again. Welcome to Temptation was hilarious, but I disliked most of the characters. Phin was a jerkwad, Sophie was a wimp, and Amy was a brat. In fact, the only...more
Davy frowned at her. "So I'm a selfish bastard for wanting to do the right thing?"
"Yes," Tilda said.
"I know that's wrong." Davy stood up. "Let me get back to you on why."
"Well, until then, keep your mouth shut," Tilda said. "You Honest people can make life hell for everybody else."
I was so confused by this book, and I'm not sure in what way completely.
This book is a sequel to Welcome to Temptation. This book is Davy Dempsey's adventure.

Enter Davy Dempsey (previously seen in Welcome to Temptation). He comes from a family with a lot of secrets, too. When he and Tilda realize they have a common goal and a need to commit a crime, they start working together - and falling f...more
Long Story short …
Davy got a problem named Clea (whom we also met in the previous book of the series): She has stolen his money. Of course he has to get it back. Thus, he decides to break in her house to get his money back. This is where he meets Matilda Goodnight, who is...more
What a roller coaster ride! I was hesitant about listening to this audiobook because I didn't like Welcome to Temptation, including Davy, who is the lead in Faking It. I finally gave it a try and while it wasn't a complete success for me, it was a great book. Faking It is different from Welcome to Temptation mainly because it was peopled with quirky characters who were also likable. Even the "bad guys" were mostly likable, or at...more
One of the great things about this book is the bad!sex our heroine has with our hero. No flowery metaphors about fireworks, just...more
Davy and Tilda are two very unusual but believable characters, well worth getting to know. Tilda is an artist in a family of slightly off-center artists. She's the sensible one, the one who keeps them grounded, and fed. She is trying really hard to shake some of the family's less endearin...more
