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.
Writing Style: 5/5
