Book Review: The Faking Game by Portia MacIntosh

Title: The Faking Game
Author: Portia MacIntosh
Genre: Romance
Publication Date: October 5, 2023
Publisher: Boldwood Books

Cara and Millsy have broken up... sort of.

After years of being everyone's favourite couple, always up for a party and having fun wherever they go, things have fizzled out.

But when they realise they have a whole calendar of events and celebrations with friends and family coming up, Cara and Millsy can't face letting them down.

So they decide to make a pact: just convince everyone they're as madly in love as ever and get through the festivities without causing suspicion, and then deal with the break up in the new year. How hard can it be...?

Swept up in the festive spirit, will Cara and Millsy fake it til they make it? Or will they realise they are meant to be after all...?

Hello Fellow Readers,

I've said it before and I will say it again, I love the fake dating trope and The Faking Game seemed like it would be such a unique spin on it. Do you know what other trope can sweep in and basically ruin a book? If you guessed the Miscommunication trope you would be absolutely right. Maybe I should have read the first book, maybe then I would have been more invested in Cara and Millsy, as I just didn't care about them that much in this book. Maybe if it was a small miscommunication and there weren't just assumptions being sprouted immediately, I would have cared but no.. You guys are ADULTS! Grow up and just talk to each other. You can get away with this trope in a YA book but not one where the main characters are adults. 

I will admit there were some good and cute parts but not enough to keep my interest. 

Overall, not for me but maybe for you.
