The Fine Art of Pretending
The Fine Art of Pretending - Rachel Harris ⭐️3.5 stars⭐️

If I don't tell her how I feel, we'll stay friends. I can handle that. Friendship is real. It lasts, and it's safe.

Well that was adorable. I wanted to throw some slaps a few times but I can't really resist friends to lovers stories so I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this book

Kill Your Darlings Yellow Game - Suspect
The Fine Art of Pretending - Rachel Harris

Stephen King has been identified as the murder in the Yellow game, so I read The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris to collect it. The book is set in the US.

The Nanny Arrangement
The Nanny Arrangement - Rachel Harris He was her hero. She was his second chance. Bonded by loneliness these childhood outsiders created a friendship that could withstand anything. Except for maybe falling in love. Deacon and Hannah are magic together. They bring out the best in each other. Ms. Harris has created one of her finest works with The Nanny Arrangement. Friendship, sentiment, humor and heart are all subjects easy to relate to and made this story a resounding success.

The Natural History of Us/Rachel Harris
The Natural History of Us - Rachel Harris

One class assignment. One second chance at love. The school player is all in. Now he needs to win back the sweet commitment girl who's forever owned his heart.
Justin Carter has a secret. He's not the total player Fairfield Academy believes him to be. Not really. In fact, he used to be a one-woman guy...and his feelings for her never went away. Too bad he broke her heart three years ago and made sure to ruin any chance she'd ever forgive him.

Peyton Williams is a liar. She pretends to be whole, counting down the days until graduation and helping her parents at the family ranch. But the truth is, she's done everything she can to get over Justin, and salvation is just around the corner. With graduation one short month away, she'll soon break free from the painful memories and start her life fresh. Of course, she has to get through working with him on one last assignment first.

For Justin, nothing ever felt as right as being with Peyton, and now that fate's given him a shot at redemption, he's determined to make the most of it. And for Peyton...well, Justin Carter has always been her kryptonite.

The second half of this book wasn't bad, but the whole thing had a very singular focus and was too predictable for me to really appreciate.


This book was told in alternating chapters from both Peyton and Justin's viewpoints and in the present, the end of their senior year, and in the past near the middle of their freshman year. This book might have been more realistic had it been set a few years later as a lot of the events that happened in their freshman year were quite adult.


I felt like the first time around, their breakup wasn't entirely realistic, and even if they soul mates, they both pined way too much in three years given that neither made any effort to reach out and talk, become friends, or at least get some closure. I think of my freshman year boyfriend as a hairy monkey in retrospect. There was nothing about their love that sold me on it being true enough for their age. Though I understand the breakup triggered another misfortune, Peyton herself admits this is something that would have happened anyway.


The baseball players in this book had their own fangirls, which was fine. The way Peyton and her friends looked down upon these girls really annoyed me; I wanted to tell them to shut up and go and live their own lives.


Justin was interesting, but too suave for me to buy. I found myself either cringing at his lines or wondering what god he was praying to that he knew what to say at certain times. Peyton was unexciting. I honestly think Lauren, Peyton's 'rival,' was the person I was most curious about in the book although I think I'm supposed to hate her.


Maybe if I were in middle school, I'd love this book. However, I'm not, and this fell into the young adult trap of feeling far too juvenile with characters performing adult behaviours.


I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Love is one dare neither of them can take...


Arabella Stone, Nashville's darling, is eager to shuck her prim-and-proper rep, and a few wild months spent checking items off her " summer bucket list" is the way to do it.


First up: kiss the man she's crushed on since she wore a training bra, the bad boy of country himself, Blue bassist Charlie Tucker. For Charlie, a beautiful woman flirting with him isn't out of the norm--but a beautiful woman bolting after the hottest kiss of his life sure is. And when he finds out his kiss-and-run Cinderella is none other than Arabella Stone, daughter of his label's CEO, he knows he's in trouble. Because not only is she a Stone, she's also his employee for the next few months at the recording studio he just bought.


Over the course of one thrilling summer, Arabella and Charlie chip away at her bucket list and fight the simmering attraction between them...knowing that once it's all over, so is their time together.  





What would Charlie think, if he came in here and saw her like this? Would he approve of the way her body looked? Her small breasts, long legs, decent collarbone, and slightly jiggly behind? Or would he be disappointed?


Would she measure up to the scores of women he’d seen this way over the years?

Arabella’s mind wandered, imagining him suddenly appearing behind her in the mirror. He wouldn’t be shocked. No, he’d be turned on, his eyes molten and hungry, devouring her. He wouldn’t be able to stand still, either; he’d step up behind her and knock her hands away, replacing them confidently with his own.  


A moan escaped. It echoed off the glass and the basin, and Ella’s head fell back, envisioning his rough, calloused palms molding her breasts, his fingers plucking the tips. Heat exploded under her skin as she imagined his golden eyes hooded and filled with sin.


“You ready, darlin’?”


Ella’s head snapped up as her heart leaped into her throat.


“Arabella? You about ready to go?”


Charlie’s heavy footsteps clomped down the hall, and in a panic, she slammed the bathroom door shut, her heart pounding in her ears. “Uh…just a minute!”


Those heavy footsteps stopped just outside the door, two seconds away from getting a shocking show, and Ella frantically spun around looking for something—anything—to cover herself with. Her gaze landed on the pink fingertip towel she’d hung near the sink, thick and lush, and far away from its matching larger friends who were stupidly waiting for her in the hallway linen closet. Way to go, Ella!


“H-how did you get in here?”


“Uh, I own the place, remember?” Normally, his low chuckle would’ve twisted her insides into goo, but now it only heightened her awareness of her supreme nakedness. “I’ve got a spare key…not that I needed it,” he added, shifting his feet, “since the front door was wide open. I did knock, though.” He paused for a second before adding, “Sorry to barge in.”


She heard what he didn’t say—that Ella had been barging her happy butt into his side of the duplex all week, assuming that as long as no women were around (which strangely enough, there never were) it wasn’t that big of a deal. And from what she could tell, it hadn’t been; Charlie hadn’t said so much as a peep. Which meant she was being a big fat hypocrite.


A very naked, slightly cold, incredibly freaked-out hypocrite.






You're Still the One (Country Blues)You're Still the One by Rachel Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Arabella AKA Ella met Charlie when she was a young teen. He was already a star. He would never see her as desirable. As a woman he would want. Or would he?

Charlie sits and talks with Ella at a music event. She realizes when she hits on him he does not recognize her. What a wonderful opportunity. If she can only go through with it. Can she lie to him to get what she wants?

Ella and Charlie start up an amazing friendship. They grow close over the summer. If the friendship is tested at the end of the summer, will it bend or break? Can Charlie stand up for what is real? Does he have what it takes in his heart?

I was literally blown away! This book has such an amazing storyline. At the end of it... an absolutely EPIC HEA! I loved the character development and the pace was just as it should be. The author, is just getting started with this series and I cannot wait to see the next story.
