FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT ANNE HARPER
Fake It Till You Make It - Anne Harper

This book was all kinds of cute and totally refreshing to read. Sloane was so darn relatable. It can be hard to express yourself sometimes, especially when the feelings are overwhelming. It was a fun and relatively lighthearted journey watching as Sloane's inadvertent thrust into the spotlight helped her really come out of her shell and connect with so many people near and far.

 

I quite enjoyed the setting too. The quirky southern small town of Arbor Bay added an extra fun dynamic to the mix. I have to say I'd love to see more of some of these characters in a future book! This was a perfect feel-good escapism romance, with some of my favorite tropes, sunshine/grumpy and fake dating. I highly recommend to fans of contemporary romance.

 

I received an arc of this book from Entangled Publishing via Netgalley and this is my honest review.

Well, that turned all wholesome and happy by the end. I think Dave morphed into another person. The real Dave would have pretended to be okay after hearing that secret and then kept his daughter at arm's length.

The most essential gift that any person can possess is the ability to laugh at themselves. Life is about the unpredictable and Harper takes delight in showing how to live with the punches it aims our way. Fake It Till You Make It packs wise words with a sense of humor. Behind the mischievous storyline and the charming characters, lies a hint of truth. In order to move pass pain and embarrassment we have to face it head on with tons of laughter and an ever present sense of self. We are not the mistakes that we make, but the lessons we learn from them guide us through this bumpy road that we call life. A sunny outlook with a relevant twist.

The mom (Jean, I think) to her kids, Molly and Michael:

 

"I tried to talk to Dave about [Heather] before you all came home, but he said I wasn't trying. He said I didn't love her enough."

 

Okay, why did Jean and Dave get married? Not only is Dave doing nothing to help his obviously troubled 7-year-old daughter ("shrinks mess up your head" or something), he's a terrible husband as well.

"'You know, though, Molly, that Dave and I count on you and Michael to take care of Heather. It's up to you to make sure she doesn't run wild in the woods all day.'"

 

OMG, I hate these parents. The mom seems to know that Heather hates everyone in the family except Dave, her dad, so she must know that all of Heather's claims about how mean Molly and Michael are to her are lies. And she still makes the bulk of the work involved in watching out for Heather Molly and Michael's responsibility. If something happens to Heather, you know they're going to blame the 12- and 10-year old they told to watch the 7-year old, instead of thinking "Hey, maybe us adults could have switched off between working on our art and actually watching out for our kids."
