Jennifer Crusie : Faking It : Book Review
And lastly, Matilda, the youngest daughter, has inherited the secret locked down fxking the basement of the Goodnight Gallery, the secret she’s willing to do almost anything to keep, even break into a house in the dead of night to steal back her past.
Meet the Dempseys, or at least meet Davy, a reformed con man who’s just been ripped off for a cool three million by his financial manager, who then gallantly turned it over to Clea Lewis, the most beautiful sociopath Davy ever slept with.
Davy wants the money back, but more than that he’ll do anything to keep Clea from winning, including break into her house in the dead of night to steal back his future. One collision in a closet later, Tilda and Davy reluctantly join forces to combat Clea, suspicious art collectors, a disgruntled heir, and an exasperated hitman, all the while coping with a jenifer dachshund, a juke box stuck fakint the sixties, questionable sex, and the growing realization that they can’t turn their backs on the people they were meant to be Paperbackpages.

Louise Although both books can be read and feel complete by themselves, I recommend you read them in order, first Welcome to Temptation then Faking it.
That’s what I did and I enjoyed them both greatly that way. See 1 question about Faking It…. Lists with This Book. Oct 08, Stephanie rated it really liked it Recommends it for: What if someone wrote a Harlequin Romance while dropping acid? I’m pretty sure this book would be the result. Jennifer Crusie, whose known for her quirky romance jennifet, outdoes herself with this tale. Who else would create a heroine who has to fake an orgasm with the hero the first time they have sex because it’s so bad?
Who else would describe their first jenniferr as “tasting of vodka and disaster”? This book is just so much fun. Jul 09, Mitticus rated it liked it Shelves: Then you make sure the consequences are so great they stay straight anyway. Lot of crooked faulty charming characters, and it made me chuckle sometimes too.
Davy Dempsey quiere sus 3 millones de vuelta. Su ex- le sustrajo su dinero con ayu 3. Su ex- le sustrajo su dinero con ayuda de otro ex-amigo. Bueno las cosas no funcionan exactamente de acuerdo al plan.
And here he was, up to his ass in skill and plans Davy es un estafador desde la cuna, y todos sus amigos parecen cortados igual. Por otra parte, Tilda tiene sus propios esqueletos en el armario con las rakingla galeria de arte que es el negocio familiar y su familia. P O sea, pinturas, y closets y Como el hecho de que el primer encuentro sexual entre los protagonistas deja mucho. Y en cuanto a Clea, la ex, con Davy: This was why men were a pain in the ass.
They only thought of themselves. You looked at me and saw what you wanted to see, a faithful hottie of a girlfriend. Well, you had me. How about a threesome? Y Tilda, con todas esas supresiones y la responsabilidad, seguro que todos le echan porras.
No quiere sujetarse a nada, porque se conoce y no puede vivir siempre haciendo lo correcto, le aburre. Bueno, es acerca de asumir quienes somos, un poco como aceptar quienes somos y jugar la mejor mano posible Pero creo que siempre he preferido donas a muffins Whereas muffins just sort of sit there all lumpy, looking alike, no chocolate icing at all.
Jun 06, Barbara rated it it was amazing Shelves: Well let me say I am so mad at myself for doing that I started really reading this book yesterday mo 5 Stars I started really reading this book yesterday morning and just devoured it in a days time.
This is a total of 3 books that I’ve read by this wonderful author There’s just something about how Crusie brings her characters to life. You actually feel like your standing in one of her crazy families and by the end of the book you feel like your part of that crazy family. And she’s also so very very funny, I love how in every book I’ve read by her she has this movie or song trivia thing going on, that’s so much fun to read.
It was also very cool to have a little update on Sophie and Phin Does anyone know which book that is?! I would for sure, no doubt about it recommend this book and “Bet Me” and “Welcome To Tempation” to all of my goodread friends! View all 3 comments. My favorite Crusie, who is my favorite contemporary romance writer, smart and witty. I am wanting a lot of analgesic fiction this week, so I am rereading a bunch of Crusie and Krentz who is my Crusie-methadone go-to.
Crusie never seems to write quite the same book twice, and so is much more limited in her output. Krentz does not seem to have that disability, so she’s much harder to run out of, but her books do rather blur together in my mind after a bit. My fave of hers is Light in Shadowif My favorite Crusie, who is my favorite contemporary romance writer, smart and witty.
My fave of hers is Light in Shadowif you’re looking for a rec. That said, I also just reread The Cinderella Dealan early Crusie, and doing the two books back-to-back did display an earlier and a later pass on some of the same ideas and tropes.
In Faking ItCrusie is definitely at the top of her form, for my tastes. Technically, Faking it is a sequel to Welcome to Temptationin that romance-series way that jumps to follow another somehow-related couple, but it works fine as a stand-alone as well.
I bought a Kindle edition, since my old paperback copy is buried in a box in my garage at present, and I didn’t want to wait in line for Overdrive from my library. Mostly pretty good in terms of transfer-typos, but it is missing an italicization of one critical line; I don’t know if this can be fixed. View all 6 comments. Faking It was the first book I ever read by Jennifer Crusie and is the reason I went to read every other book she has ever written.
This one, however, remains my favorite. The story is one part romance novel, one part action adventure and is liberally sprinkled with humor, musical references, art and movie quotes. The heroine is asthmatic which is a first for me in fiction — asthma as a charming plot ploy rather than the sad pathetic fat kid’s problem.

Faking It is the perfect beach read, vaction book or airport diversion. Charming and a little racy, I have returned to this book several times to visit with the quirky Goodnights.
This was not truly truly a 5 star read. Tilda and Davy were offbeat and bizarre and real. Rather than a book where a character has a quirk or imperfection this was a story where the characters were quirks and imp This was not truly truly a 5 star read.

I was thrilled when I discovered that Davy was finally given his own story. This book was not as funny, clever, sexy or charming as Crusie’s prior novels. Matilda Goodnight is disappointing and not at all what I had in mind for Davy.
