Mackenzie “Max” Miller is a college girl that wants her freedom. She works as a dancer and server at a bar that college kids frequent. She knows her parents won't approve of her choices, so she puts on a show every time they are around. She covers up her tattoos, and hides her deadbeat boyfriend, Mace. Max even fakes a relationship with a stranger in a coffee shop when her parents spring a surprise visit on her.
Cade is a "golden boy" that seems picture perfect. He pretends to be Max's boyfriend, helps her confront her fears, and manages to help her realize what she wants in her life at the same time. Their fake relationship builds a friendship, but I could feel the tension between the two from the start. It builds slowly, but oh boy, I couldn't wait to see what would happen when they got together. Besides the fact that he doesn't like fighting for what he wants, Cade truly is a golden boy. The characters have their flaws just like everyday people which made this story real. Faking It was a great book, and I will be purchasing the others in the series very soon.
