I really enjoyed Fakers by Meg Collett. It had so many wonderful things: A sexy bad boy with an attitude, young hot woman who has an inner darkness, a fun, spirited artsy friend, and lots of hot moments and laugh out loud fun. It was also emotional, real, and so very compelling. It had a rich story line, strong plot, and blow your mind wide open romance.
I was enamored right away of sexy Hale Cooper. The contractor with tattoos, an attitude and a VERY lickable body. He was such a strong character. He was surprisingly misunderstood. He also had an incredible protective streak with the ones he cared about, and he had NO problems laying anyone out who messed with his brother. Kyra was a sweet bundle of awesomeness. She is strong willed, determined to make her life her own, she has some issues but she was ALWAYS doing her best to rise above them and boy, her temper was a thing of beauty. Especially when it was pointed at Hale.
I think this book was quite amazing. It had me giggling, rooting for Hale and Kyra, and had the most heartbreaking moments you could imagine. I LOVED every minute and every word in Fakers. FIVE OUT OF FIVE SHOOTING STARS is what I give to Fakers by Meg Collett. It had a bit of EVERYTHING in this romance. Basically this book had the kind of things REAL people in life go through and I found it really refreshing and realistic. I am looking forward to more books by this talented author.
“Well,” Stevie started, picking her spatula back up. “I’m going to start with the most obvious question: Is he a good kisser?”
Kyra bit her lip and nodded, making Stevie roll her eyes dramatically. “It was probably the best kiss I’ve ever had, but that really isn’t saying much since my kissing experience is pretty limited. His skin was warm from where he’d been working. He wasn’t quite sweaty yet, but I could still smell it. When I kissed him, I tasted the salt of it around his lips. I had my legs around his waist—”
“What?” Stevie screeched, throwing her hands in the air and flinging icing everywhere. “That is so not just a kiss! You pounced on the poor guy! You’re a freaking animal!”
“I did,” Kyra agreed, smiling rather dreamily. “I jumped onto him, and he caught me. I could feel the muscles in his arms go all tight to hold me. And then I kissed him, but that didn’t last long.”
“He stopped it?” Stevie asked, slightly breathless.
“No. He starting kissing me back, and it was like…”
“Like what?” Stevie yelled.
“Like he needed to taste every part of my mouth. Like maybe he had wanted to kiss me too, but I was the one that did it first. It kind of felt like he wanted every inch of me, but all he had was my mouth. So he took it. And all I could do was just hold on.” Kyra shrugged when she was finished.
Stevie was wide-eyed with her mouth parted slightly. She blinked as if she was waking up from a dream. Then she shivered. “Well, I’m good to go for another few months.” She squeezed her legs together and made another face. “Oh, yeah. That’ll do.”
