Crazy, Stupid, Fauxmance (Shellee Roberts)

hearts3

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a kickass heroine, a boy so hot he’ll make you shiver, and a falling-in-love story fit for the big screen. You’ll want to settle in and have the popcorn ready. 

After Mariely Hinojosa and Cabot Wheeler both break up with their significant others at the same party, Mariely sees a way to get even with both of their exes. Everyone knows that the best way to get over a breakup is a hookup — a fake hookup, that is. Three weeks, all fun, no strings, and definitely no heartbreak at the end.  

But somewhere between the sweet hand-holding and melt-your-mind kisses, their fake relationship starts to feel less like an act and more like the real thing…but Mariely’s a free-spirited girl from the other side of the tracks, and Cabot’s the hot trust-fund guy from the Hills.

They’d never work for real…


Two months ago I read the second book of this series, How Willa Got Her Groove Back, and since I saw that the next book would be about her BFF, I was excited. So when it got to Netgalley, I requested it right away, and “convinced” Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much to request it too, so we could read it together. So yeah, yet another buddy read! Check out her blog in the next few days to read her review of this book.

Right from the start, I really liked this one. The writing was once again great, and the book followed the same formula as the other one, with Mariely’s chapters being from a 1st person POV, and the occasional chapter showing Cabot’s perspective on the 3rd person. This is not exactly alternating POVs, but somehow it really works for these books.

Now, just putting it out there, I was very glad to have one of my biggest suspicions from the other book confirmed here!!!

I really liked both characters, though Mariely was so afraid to be herself most of the time, and I wanted her to get a bit out of her own head, also, she reminded me a bit of Lola, from Lola and the Boy Next Door, sometimes.. Cabot was so sweet… oh my! I really liked how the “fake” relationship progressed to a point where they were actually friends, and then something more. I also loved how direct Cabot was about his intentions, because usually in these kinds of romances they’re always both playing coy. And I really want Cabot to pain Mariely for his Spring show…

I can’t wait to see how their story progresses to book 2 and 3. And I absolutely loved seeing Willa and Finn’s story intertwined with Cabot and Mariely’s in this book, and I’m all for a Cabot and Finn bromance, because that ups the chances of Finn and Willa finally resolving some things.

Entangled Crush doesn’t let me down 😀 !

April TBR

april_TBR

Hello 😀 . Today I’ll show you my TBR for this month. In March I managed to read 22 books by some miracle. Granted, one was a super short novella and another one was a short story, but still, it was the most I ever read in a single month, and most books were finished in the span of 24 hours. So, I hope I have a similarly awesome reading month in April, though I won’t aim that high, because that’s crazy.

I’m going for 15 books, of which 2.5 of them are already finished (yes, it’s still the 3rd day of the month…).

AprilTBR

  1. The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig – Me and Cátia are both about halfway through with this book. It’s good, but neither of us has been in the mood for it.
  2. Changing His Game (The Reynolds Brothers, #1) by Justine Elvira – I actually finished this book already (and I was so disappointed).
  3. Roommates by Erin Leigh – And I finished this one already too…
  4. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – This beauty will be a buddy read with Kat @Life and Other Disasters and Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much. After weeks of waiting, Cátia is finally getting her book on monday, and we will begin this journey. It will probably take us a bit to get through it, but we will!
  5. Once Upon a Dream (Twisted Tales #2) by Liz Braswell – I didn’t like the first one a bit, but I’ll give this one a shot.
  6. Catch You (Love Me, I’m Famous 0.5) by M.H. Soars – Warning, the next 5 book are buddy reads with Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much, because we love to request the same ARCs on Netgalley.
  7. The One That Got Away (Kingston Ale House #1) by A.J. Pine – Another ARC I’m reading with Cátia
  8. Crazy, Stupid, Fauxmance (Creative HeArts #3) by Shellee Roberts – And another one… I’m so excited for this one, because I read the second book of this series last month.
  9. Pieces of You and Me by Erin Fletcher – Another ARC I’m reading with Cátia.
  10. That Thing Between Eli and Gwen by J.J. McAvoy – And another!
  11. Tone Deaf by Olivia Rivers – The author asked me if I would like to read and review her book… hells YES! (Kat @Life and Other Disasters is also reading this one…)
  12. Anything You Want by Geoff Herbach – Me and Kat @Life and Other Disasters are finally getting to this one. And Sara @Freadom Library is joining us 😀
  13. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover – I’m going to Portugal later this month, which means I’ll finally be able to buy CoHo’s ebooks!!! (Kindle store’s prices differ from Portugal to Spain, and they’re way nicer at home).
  14. The Year We Fell Down (The Ivy Years #1) by Sarina Bowen – I bought this book this month (for free), so I’m hoping I get some time to get to it. Everybody says wonders of Sarina Bowen, and I fell in love with Him and Us.
  15. #Junkie (GearShark #1) by Cambria Hebert – I stumbled upon this book by accident, and after loving  Him and Us so much, I think I’ll enjoy this one as well.

This is what I plan to read this month of April, I might not get to all the books, but I’ll try to finish all my ARCs – the goal on Netgalley keeps beeing the 80% ratio… not far now.

I also think that some books will take a little bit of time, such as Lady Midnight. Not only is the book huge, but buddy reading implies that we have to keep a steady pace between the 3 of us 😉 .
