Fans of romance don't need to look any further than the fauxmance brewing between teen idols Charlie Tracker and Fielding Withers—known on their hit TV show as Jenna and Jonah, next-door neighbors flush with the excitement of first love. But it's their off-screen relationship that has helped cement their fame, as passionate fans follow their every PDA. They grace the covers of magazines week after week. Their fan club has chapters all over the country. The only problem is their off-screen romance is one big publicity stunt, and Charlie and Fielding can't stand to be in the same room. Still, it's a great gig, so even when the cameras stop rolling, the show must go on, and on, and on. . . .

Until the pesky paparazzi blow their cover, and Charlie and Fielding must disappear to weather the media storm. It's not until they're far off the grid of the Hollywood circuit that they realize that there's more to each of them than shiny hair and a winning smile.

Yani's Analysis:
So if you have read my other reviews by now you know I am a fan of the love/hate romantic relationships. I am a strong believer that hate and love come from the same passion, if you didn’t love you wouldn’t care enough to hate. So when I saw a review for this book on a fellow book blogger’s site, I immediately downloaded and read it in one night. I had many other books waiting in my TBR pile, but this book just spoke to me. I definitely recommend this book, it is cute and unique and right now just $3.25 on the kindle. Or I could always kindle lend it to someone =)

Jenna and Jonah completely fake, and that’s because they are the character names of Charlie and Fielding on their hit television show. While the play romantic co-parts on screen (and off-screen for the paparazzi) they can barely tolerate being around each other. When the secret is revealed they rush away from the city and hide at Fielding beach house. Unlike most stories, the romance doesn’t start right away. They get to know each other, the real them, and they both struggle to figure out what they went from the rest of their lives.

Thought not what I expected this was still a really enjoyable book and I found myself rooting for Charlie and Fielding from the beginning. They complement each other and help each other grow.

Plot: 4/5
Writing Style: 5/5
Uniqueness: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
