Review: Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance

Summary from Goodreads:

Fans of romance don't need to look any further than the fauxmance brewing between teen idols Charlie Tracker and Fielding Withers-known on their hit TV show as Jenna and Jonah, next-door neighbors flush with the excitement of first love. But it's their off-screen relationship that has helped cement their fame, as passionate fans follow their every PDA. They grace the covers of magazines week after week. Their fan club has chapters all over the country. The only problem is their off-screen romance is one big publicity stunt, and Charlie and Fielding can't stand to be in the same room. Still, it's a great gig, so even when the cameras stop rolling, the show must go on, and on, and on. . . . Until the pesky paparazzi blow their cover, and Charlie and Fielding must disappear to weather the media storm. It's not until they're far off the grid of the Hollywood circuit that they realize that there's more to each of them than shiny hair and a winning smile.

My Thoughts:

Forced to pretend to be in love on and off screen, Charlie and Fielding can’t stand to be around each other in real life.  Let the Fauxmance ensue!

This book was a lot different than I was expecting.  While this isn’t my normal reading material, I picked it up for my e-reader for only $1.49 and started reading it as research in a way for an idea I’ve had for another book (but am still quite a ways away from having time to write…).  I thought I knew where this book was going to go.  I was wrong.

This felt a lot like two books to me.  There was the first half of running and hiding from the paparazzi, of being on camera, and watching their every move so they don’t screw their careers up.  And then there comes the time when they do, and suddenly they’re being forced to be part of a Shakespearian festival?  Say what?

I almost wish I could give two ratings on this book.  While I was disappointed with the second half, feeling like it kind of drug on, I would give it a much lower rating than the first half.  I really enjoyed seeing Charlie and Fielding realize that even though they can’t stand each other sometimes, they really have always been able to count on one another.  And sometimes the one you need the most has been standing right next to you all along.

My overall rating is 3 out of 5 stars.
