Faking it never felt so good in this red-hot new standalone by New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg.

Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn’t surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it.

Lord have mercy. I have to gather my thoughts on this one ☺️

Zane Phillips & Harlow Nicks, you captured me during this read!!!!

“Welcome to hell, Phillips.
Where the temptation is hot as fuck, the consequences are damning, and the sins are at your fingertips waiting to burn you.”

“This is going to be a serious problem. Huge. Stick around—you should because he’s over there taking off his shirt—and things are just beginning to get good.”

Hands down one I recommend to all you romance lovers ♥️

Just face it, Harlow . . . you can’t resist me.”
“Resist you?” I laugh. “I can barely stand you.”

That hot cover and enticing blurb don't even come close to doing this book justice. And that's saying something because that cover and blurb are EVERYTHING. But this book is also so much more than just a relationship of convenience trope. It's a swoony, humorous, perfectly paced, deliciously blended romance cake with plenty of sexual chemistry as the sprinkles on top! I loved the e

Let me start the review with this important knowledge.


Maximum romance novels these days:

Girl: The guy is a douche bag who doesn't respect girls and thinks of himself as a God's gift to women.
Girl: Falls for the said douche bag cause acts like a 2% nice guy.
Guy: Does something douche bag-ish in the end

Anyway, so here is the plot:

Harlow Nicks is a model in Los Angeles who is still looking for her big break. While following her dreams she still has to pay the rent, so she's hoping her latest interview will go well.

Faking It for the fairy-tale ending…

I know all about faking it. Not, Faking It but faking it…in the acting out my interest in social interactions when I’m really wanting to listen to my audiobook instead. I was a good girl, though, and managed to hold plenty of meaningful conversations (I think) but I was distracted knowing I had unfinished books sitting and waiting for me. See, I’m on holidays and sitting beside a beautiful river with a bunch of friends and reading/listening got put on the back

I love, love, LOVE Kristy's writing, so it comes as no surprise (to me) that I fell completely in love with Harlow and Zane. Well, first I developed a serious girl crush on Harlow because she's a kickbutt heroine. Then I fell for the alpha, sometimes-jerk, sometimes-seriously sweet Zane.

I love the unique premise for the story, the building sexual tension and the hilarious, witty banter as they're forced into each other's personal space 24 hours a day, seven days a week for months!

Nothing better than to start the new year with a book by one of my absolute favorite authors! K. Bromberg does it again for me in this enemies-to-lovers romance. Entertaining, sexy and emotional: Faking It surely did not disappoint me. I love Kristy’s characters, her writing style and how she develops her stories.

I really liked this book! Especially the audiobook. We have a wonderfully strong and confident heroine. Who is read by a genius actress. And we have a gloriously sexy hero who is perfectly performed.
Our hero is launching a dating website and our heroine is a spokesmodel. Add to that our hero also needs a girlfriend to show he has used his website.
Excellent story! Emotional romance!

Rupert Channing stole the show! This is one of my new favorites! Gah! That accent tho!! I might be in love! The audiobook is FANTASTIC!! Erin Mallon is always perfection, so this is a definite win. I absolutely loved everything about it!

Zane Phillips meets his match (literally) when he mistakenly assumes Harlow is his dog walker. He's wealthy, brash, and completely full of him. Apparently he has a right to be because he's sexy AF! Harlow isn't impressed by his antics and gives him a piece of her

Loved the narration! Sexy Aussie, hello. Cute, funny and romantic story.

The audiobook was a light and sexy love story that I enjoyed all the more because of the outstanding narration by Rupert Channing and Erin Mallon. This audiobook was just pure fun, between Zane's sexy Australian accent and his cocky attitude, to Harlow's strong personality and inner monologue. The narrators really brought this enemies-to-lovers story to life!

The first half, I am nearing to 4 stars. The story is promising. The plot is engaging. The characters develop well. The conversation and the banter is fun and flirty. Sexy. the teasing/ foreplay promising more.

But when I reach toward the end, I just disappointed. The story becomes stall and flat. The plot becomes dragging. So dragging that I fall asleep listening to the audio book. I want to see the story and the plot to develop more instead just sexual attraction between Harlow and Zane. Zane

I absolutely cannot get over this! K. Bromberg and these narrators have quite possibly created my favorite audiobook ever!

The voices of narrators are perfection! I swear the heroes Aussie accent did something to me. The dialogue and the banter is sexy and fun, the chemistry, amazing.

The journey of these two is so much fun! The fake relationship, watching it turn into something real, the grand gesture is all just freaking fabulous.

The story in and of itself is not groundbreaking
Melanie (mells_view)
Predictable but super sweet. Loved the tension between the main characters. Zane doesn’t believe in love, and Harlow has given up on it. These two together seem like complete repelling magnets, but the more time they spend together they see that isn’t quite the case.

Fake relationship. Hidden agendas. Reluctantly falling in love. Oh and there’s a road trip!

This was actually my first read from this author and I really enjoyed it!

4.5 stars - Audiobook Review

Well, this was a tasty treat—a wonderfully light palate cleanser, if you will, after reading some seriously angst-filled books.

Harlow is a winsome heroine made of equal parts spunk and heart. I like seeing entitled, arrogant jerks getting blindsided by love, so Zane was just my type. Harlow may be down on her luck and Zane oozes wealth and power, but she doesn’t hesitate to stand up him. I enjoyed the power balance in their relationship. Their bus tour offers fun anti

HOLY AUSSIE HOTNESS! Faking It proves, once again, that K. Bromberg always has the magic combo between gripping emotional, scorching hot and hilariously entertaining! This book truly had it all!

First of all, I was insta in love with Harlow. From her very first thoughts, and how she met and deal with Zane, from the very first second, omg, I was THERE with her, and like, 'Tell him, girl!'. Yep, total girl crush - and not just because she is me with her sarcasti

If you’ve missed K. Bromberg’s words like me, then you will be chomping at the bit for her latest standalone, 𝐅𝐚𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐈𝐭. Zane and Harlow’s romance was an original delight. It was fast-paced, extremely witty and entertaining, steamy, and comical. I couldn’t get enough of these two.

Had a great beginning. Great premise. The writing/dialogue is really good-especially in the beginning.
I liked both Harlow's voice (Erin Mallon) & Zane's (Rupert Channing) voices. Harlow's voice with the whisper-talk really got annoying. I had a hard time thinking 'is she saying that or thinking that?'
Why was she whispering? They traded off chapters so she even did it when Harlow was talking about Zane. Zane's voice has an Aussie accent. I liked his tone. When Rupert did Robert's voice, it was ve

Not bad.

This was a pretty cute read. It's the kind of book you go to when you are on a break from serious book, it's just like a pizza you buy when you are looking for something good but temporary, it's worth it in that moment but you soon forget about it and look for something else (ain't I the poet today).

Worth reading though.

Audiobook Review

The overall loves story was good ~4 stars. It's always fun to watch the selfish arrogant hero fall in love. The narrators were horrible though. The hero has an Aussie accent and I cringed every time he mimicked an American accent, especially the heroine's voice. Likewise, the female narrator imitating the Aussie male accent was just dreadful.

one thing you should know about me: i hate stereotypes, which is essentially what this book is about. the main characters were constantly saying how “as a woman i-” “just like every other man i-”. now, there’s nothing wrong with all the other women, men and non-binary folks out there, but everything was based on meaningless stereotypes. the man only cared about sex and women while the female character’s only worry was love:

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate but can’t help to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.
