Every action has a consequence, and Claire Ward knows it. And yet, even knowing that her decision to swap places with her identical twin sister, Lia, for a night could be disastrous, she still does it.
Because it will give her an evening with the man she’s been crushing on for years, Lia’s best friend, Finn.
Miss Straight A Student has thought through all the angles, and knows the risk is worth it. And everything would have been fine, if Finn had been the one to show up at her door.
But it wasn’t.
Bauer Davis— Finn’s half brother and his exact opposite in just about every definable category is the one waiting for her instead. A professional snowboarder, Bauer is covered in ink, full of attitude, and has a chip on his shoulder the size of Mt. Olympus. The kind of bad boy that Claire has never been attracted to before.
Now the good girl is with the wrong brother for a night, and when the consequence is that they have to pretend to be together for an event, it’s nothing she could have predicted. But maybe, just maybe, what makes Bauer so bad, is exactly what Claire needs.
It’s LIVEEEEEEE!!! You guys know how excited I was for this, right? Well, I devoured this book. It was perfect. Had some major swoon and all the feels! The story is the badboy/ good girl trope! An opposites attract thing! And gah, add in TONS of chemistry, a great build up, ALL the feels, and an addicting storyline, and you have Faked. I freaking LOVED it. MUST READ.

The moment I read the blurb for Faked I knew I NEEDED to get my hands on this book. I mean, talk about a BLURB JOLT MOMENT! I love a good twin switch! Add in the heroine ending up with the other brother, the bad-boy brother she’s never even met!
GAH! YES YES YES, just all the freaking YESES.
I was so here for that. And let me tell you, this book was all sorts of intoxicating. I was hooked right from the start. I LOVE the good girl/bad boy trope. That opposites attract thing is soooooo sexy! Add in TONS of chemistry, a great build up, ALL the feels, and a storyline that is so easy, and you have FAKED. Just AMAZING from start to finish!
Karla Sorensen is really great at creating a build, at giving her characters a good backstory, of adding tons of detail. There’s so much tension and feels, chemistry and sexy in her books! The moment Bauer shows up to pick up Claire, YOU FEEL IT. That sizzle. That “OMG, this is going to be so good” feeling. And it did not disappoint.
Bauer is the black sheep of his family. Next to his step-brother Finn, he thinks he’s second best and that makes you want to snuggle and love on him! Claire is so opposite of Bauer. Where Bauer is mouthy and reckless, Claire is quiet and reserved, thoughtful and observant. Their dynamic is pure perfection and the way they are together is just delicious.
Overall, Faked had EVERYTHING I want in a romance. Feels, swoon, sexy, a dash of angst, and ALL the banter. I ADORED every word. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a solid romance. Faked is a standalone in a series. That said, if you have time to pick up The Marriage Effect, DO IT. It’s where you’re introduced to the Ward Family. And then dive into Focused, followed by Faked. These books are just SO BEYOND good.
