Review: Crazy, Stupid, Fauxmance by Shellee Roberts

After Mariely Hinojosa and Cabot Wheeler both break up with their significant others at the same party, Mariely sees a way to get even with both of their exes. Everyone knows that the best way to get over a breakup is a hookup—a fake hookup, that is. Three weeks, all fun, no strings, and definitely no heartbreak at the end. 

But somewhere between the sweet hand-holding and melt-your-mind kisses, their fake relationship starts to feel less like an act and more like the real thing...but Mariely’s a free-spirited girl from the other side of the tracks, and Cabot’s the hot trust-fund guy from the Hills. 

They’d never work for real...

My Thoughts:
I live near Austin so I LOVED that this book was based there.  Mariely was an amazing character.  I would have loved to see her sense of style on the cover.  I liked how determined she was not to let her circumstances hold her back.  Mariely & Cabot both do an excellent job of calling each other out when it comes to dealing with their personal issues.  While their past relationships seemed to hold them back, their "fauxmance" pushes them out of their comfort zones and into something much better than they ever imagined.  In the end, things fall into place and the scene is set for other characters to take center stage.  That last sentence is really clever after you've read the book.  I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the Creative HeArts series.  
Recommended for 15 & up.  Mild language & sexual content.
