Fake Out (Fake Boyfriend #1) Reviews
This is a new to me author, and the blurb had me very curious.
This story was pretty much the world upside down for me.....
When Maddox felt like he couldn't break up with his high school girlfriend, he told her he was gay, just so he could escape her....and she wouldn't be too broken hearted.
Things pretty much blow up in his face though, when his ex informs the whole town of his gayness, before he even gets home. This includes his parents, who are really supportive of him being gay.
Now this would ...more
This was a nice little story.
Fake boyfriend trope
I'll definitely check out Matt and Noah's book.
The blurb initially turned me off of this one. But then my friend, Todd, said the magic word - banter.
Yeah, that's all it takes.
I'm glad I did. It was so much better than I thought! And the fake boyfriend trope was executed really differently here - and only took up a small portion of the story.
The rest was just FUN!
No melodrama to be found. Just two guys who kinda pine for each other until they figure their shit out.
With an awful lot of UST mixed in. And aforementioned banter.
I'm really look ...more

***4.5 stars easy***
So wonderful in all the right places and IMO not overly angsty. Really enjoyed this new to me author and cannot wait to see what awaits for the rest of the characters in this series! I might even read Stacy’s book if and when it comes out, which is saying a lot since I haven’t read a MF book in quite some time. Regardless, I do hope that Matt’s book is next 😊. Thanks Bo for another great one and I do recommend this one 🧐
This book was fun. I really loved how light-hearted Maddox was. The storyline held so much potential for all kinds of angst, but it never went there. Yes, there was a big misunderstanding in the middle, but it was solved almost immediately, so that didn’t really bother me.
Maddox is kind of a manwhore. He is not looking for commitment and slept his way through college. The only real friend he has is the one woman who refuses to sleep with him. Stacy is his best friend and helps him out when he ne ...more
“Sarcasm is great. You can say anything and pretend you’re joking. People think I’m hilarious when in reality I’m just an asshole.”
This book was super cute!!! GAH!!! Almost everything I look for when I'm looking for my next M/M read. And let's appreciate that cover for a second, okay? *swoon*
The blurb caught my attention right off the bat and the author was also new to me. I haven't read a book about a fake relationship in a very long time so this was perfect. Add in good banter, ...more
So, yeah, my Bestie totally had it right when it came to this book: It's adorable, funny, sexy...and written really well. (Thanks Eugenia!) I loved that these guys - as much as it hurt or confused them - made the effort to communicate, and that they really brought out the best in each other, were so supportive.
I also really liked the supporting cast of characters. They felt like important parts of the story, not like they were introduced willy-nilly just to get them familiar to the read ...more
I am a huge fan of the fake relationship trope. Like, major. I will read just about every book I come by with if it has the fake relationship trope going on. So of course I picked this one up as soon as I saw it on my feed and I loved it.
Maddox is single and known for being a man-whore. He has commitment issues that run so deep that he literally ran from home leaving behind an ex and his small home town believing he was gay. Yes, you read that right. He didn't have the nerve to break up ...more
