FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!
I freaking DEVOURED this book. I’m talking start to finish in a couple hours because I could not get enough of Claire and Bauer. These two were BRILLIANT! They not only had immediate and intense chemistry but the form a deep emotional connection that made them an incredible couple.
It seemed like Claire was one of the very few who actually saw Bauer for who he really was. He was such a misunderstood man and that caused him to build some pretty intense walls around his heart. The saying “If people tell a person what they are enough they will become that person” perfectly describes Bauer. My heart HURT for him. Heck, it still hurts for him. I would have loved to have seen his parents open their eyes to what an incredible man he was despite his upbringing. Beyond all of that though was Claire and Bauer together. These two understood each other in a way that was flat out beautiful. Claire easily saw Bauer for the man he is and Bauer saw Claire for the incredible woman she was right off the bat. They were one of those couples that really just jump from the pages because of how special they are.
Faked was my happy place! Karla Sorensen has delivered a feel-good, low drama romance with with characters I loved from the very beginning! Bauer and Claire’s story was straight up romance bliss! Their relationship had insta-love vibes thanks to how effortless the connection was between them and had me eating up every single page of it. And can we just talk about Bauer? The man is Book Boyfriend Hall of Fame material! I loved watching him shed the bad boy facade that masked so much hurt (I just wanted to jump into the story and hold him) as he began to let Claire in. Despite his emotional shortcomings he went after Claire with all he had and didn’t really hold back and my little heart swooned all the swoons! I just loved them so much! If you’re looking for a feel-good romance with all the swoons and steam to get lost, then Faked is exactly that and more. 4 stars.
