Oh boy, I cannot believe we are already in May! April flew by and it was a very busy month for me. I didn’t read as much as I hoped and definitely didn’t review as much as I wanted as my work has been crazy and I had a wedding to go to nearly every other weekend. Busy, busy.
Despite all the craziness, I managed to read 8 books again this month. That seems to be my normal number of books to read recently as I read the same amount in March.

It pains me so much that I didn’t like this book. I was greatly looking forward to it as I adored Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series and was excited for her to write another musician hero. However, this book fell flat. This book was a bit of a nebulous meh.

Let me start off by saying that Kylie Scott is the author of one of my all-time favorite books, Lead. That book is such a comfort read and one I find myself going back to over and over again. When I saw Scott was releasing a new romance centered in Hollywood with an actor instead of a band, I knew I needed to read it.
Fake centers on Patrick Walsh, one of the hottest male movie stars, who finds himself at the center of a scandal that is tarnishing his image and costing him job. To redeem his image, his publicist and him devise a scheme where he’ll fake date Norah Peers, a regular, everyday girl who works at an Italian restaurant Patrick frequents. Yes, this doesn’t seem like the most realistic plot, but it feels relatively tame and believable for a faking dating romance.
