Review by: Mary

Jason just wants a date with Harley.
Harley just wants a date with Trent. 
Trent's still getting over Stephanie.

When Harley and Jason decide to fake date, they uncover a school of deceptions. Trent's got a secret, but so does Jason. And the more time Harley spends secretly kissing her fake boyfriend, the further she gets from her dreams with Trent. 

Worst of all, Harley's mom is getting cozy with her hot massage therapy student, and even Harley's Reverend Dad can't fake not being bothered by it. But when the masks finally come off, can everyone handle the real truth?

Whoa. This book needs to be on your radar. No joke. I was all over it. If you liked Anna and the French Kiss or The Summer I Turned Pretty then you will like this one. I love this cover! It fits with the story line well. Plus I think the guy is hot in it. I could just stare at him all day. 

There is a creek in the neighborhood that Harley, Jason, Trent, and Shelly all end up meeting at at different times during the story. It's almost like a safe place. I found myself eager for the next time they would meet there. This is such a tangled web of a story. He likes her, she likes the other guy over there and he likes somebody else.Would they ever get with the right people?! 

Now, let me tell you about Jason. I love Jason. I want Jason. I wish I knew a guy like Jason when I was in high school. A guy not afraid to go for what he wants. Who thinks on his feet and is full of romance and fun. The witty banter between Harley and Jason had me laughing out loud. Jason is my kind of guy and I'm kind of in love with him. I found myself re-reading my favorite conversations between him and Harley when I was finished. He is a great character and I wouldn't mind more of him! {ie: that means write another story please!}

There are some serious issues present here but all handled with finesse and care. I guessed early on what was actually happening but I wasn't positive. As the story went on I was wondering if I'd be right or not. Things got a little serious and glum and I just wanted things to go back to the fun loving attitude at the start, but you can never go back from these kinds of things. Situations and circumstances change us as people and hopefully make us better. That just makes reunions all the more sweet. 

I really really loved this book. If you are in a reading rut then this book will pull you out. The Truth About Faking is a fun and easy read that's going to knock your socks off. I'm adding it to my favorites list! I know you'll love it too.
