Anybody who knows me will also know how much I rave about Cora Carmack. I loved her first novel Losing It (review here) and cannot wait to read Faking It. For you lucky people in the US, you can read it today! Go forth and buy! Thankfully we don’t have to wait much longer; it is published Thursday 6th here in the UK. I cannot wait to buy a copy and devour it. I’ve also got my fingers crossed at a chance to meet her when she visits the UK next week 🙂 Thanks to Kelly from Inkslinger PR for organizing this release day launch. Oh and Happy Birthday to Cora!
Mackenzie “Max” Miller has a problem. Her parents have arrived in town for a surprise visit, and if they see her dyed hair, tattoos, and piercings, they just might disown her. Even worse, they’re expecting to meet a nice, wholesome boyfriend, not a guy named Mace who has a neck tattoo and plays in a band. All her lies are about to come crashing down around her, but then she meets Cade.
Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and to leave his problems behind in Texas. So far though, he’s kept the problems and had very little opportunity to take the stage. When Max approaches him in a coffee shop with a crazy request to pretend to be her boyfriend, he agrees to play the part. But when Cade plays the role a little too well, they’re forced to keep the ruse going. And the more they fake the relationship, the more real it begins to feel.
Cora Carmack is a twenty-something writer who likes to write about twenty-something characters. She’s done a multitude of things in her life– boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing). She enjoys placing her characters in the most awkward situations possible, and then trying to help them get a boyfriend out of it. Awkward people need love, too. Her first book, LOSING IT, is a New York Times and USA Today bestseller.
