Fauxmance (foh-mans): Term for a romantic relationship that is fake. Real feelings, like love, are strictly prohibited. See also: Why would anyone enter a fake relationship?
Eighteen-year-old Magnolia believes in true love.
Or she did.
When her boyfriend dumps her the day before her sister's wedding, Maggie is devastated—but her broken heart is only part of the problem. Maggie is the maid of honor, and her sister insists: Every member of the bridal party must have an escort. No exceptions.
Thank goodness for Hayden Davenport.
Sarcastic, cocky, a surprisingly good listener and self-professed player, when Maggie gets stuck in an elevator with the handsome stranger, she thinks she's found the perfect wedding date. Unfortunately, Hayden hates weddings. Like really hates them.
But one soul-shattering kiss changes everything.
Maggie needs a fake boyfriend. Hayden wants to prove he's changed his playboy ways. Faking it should be easy. The hard part?
Remembering it's all pretend and not falling in love for real.
This book features two opposites with sizzling chemistry, a sweet, hopeless romantic and a cynical bad boy who'll steal your heart. Elevators, fake romance, and weddings, oh my! Get ready to swoon, laugh, and say 'I do' to this heartfelt YA romance.
Fauxmance is a young adult contemporary romance by Cookie O’Gorman. Fauxmance was wonderfully fun read. Once I picked this book, I simply could not put it down. Cookie O’ Gorman writes the cutest romances with characters that you cannot help but fall in love with and root for.
In Fauxmance we meet our main characters, Magnolia and Hayden. Magnolia is adorable. She is polite, opinionated and completely and un-apologetically true to herself. So when her jerk of a boyfriend broke up with her and blindsided her not only with the breakup but with the double whammy that he was seeing someone else, all one day before her sister’s wedding, I was heartbroken for her. So when she met the hot and totally sweet Hayden in an elevator later that same day, I instantly fell for him. I have no idea why Hayden has such a bad rep, because from the very moment he met Maggie, he was an absolute sweet heart. He is the stuff book boyfriends are made of.
Their story will put a perma-smile on your face. I was utterly charmed by both of them and I loved Fauxmance so much. It might be my very favorite Cookie O’ Gorman book yet, which is a saying a lot because I have loved so many of her other books. If you are a fan of contemporary romances of any age, you need to check out Fauxmance. You will love it.
