Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection.
Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom’s dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it’s what he wants too.
Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another—losing themselves in each other to forget about their pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.
Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.
*****5+ STAR READ*****!!!!!
Let me start off by saying, somebody has a new book boyfriend!!!!!!!!!!! Colt is definitely a heart stopper!!!!!! I really loved this character. He brought so much emotion out of me. This book will stay with me forever. The realness I felt for these characters is beyond words. I bought this book, and it sat in my Kindle for 5 days. I knew from reading others reviews and feelings on this book that it was going to effect my daily life, so it took me a moment to commit. After a couple days of my mom calling me asking me if I had finished it yet (cause she wanted to discuss this desperately with somebody), I knew it was time to stop procrastinating and get to it. Once I start a book I don’t stop if I get to intensely into them. I think I read this book in an 8 hour time frame. I made sure the hubby was home with the kids and locked myself away in my room. I could not take a break from reading. I did not want to put this book down!!!!!! I felt so bad for these characters. The things that Cheyenne went through is something not many will ever have to go through in their life. But she gave off this strong attitude, but she was deeply broken inside and I knew that someone had the break down the walls and help her start to rebuild her heart. Colt also had his own issues believe me there were many times I wanted to jump into the book and take away his pain. As soon as they met I knew Cheyenne was going to be the one to do it, and help him realize a lot about him self. Adrian, oh Adrian many thought he was going to be the friend who told Colt what Colt wanted to hear, more passive in a way. Turns out he might be quiet and not voice everything you might to a friend but he is the best-friend I feel any guy could have. You could really feel the strong bond between Adrian and Colt. He loved his friend and knew exactly how to deal with him and let Chey in with open arms! Gregory and Red aka Maxine, what lousy people. I really wanted to stick it to Red from the beginning. Who is proud of doing what she has done to Chey? I will not say what she has done you have to read for your self to figure that one out. Gregory was as cocky as I thought Colt would have been, thank god my dear Colt was not like that. I did not get that from him at all. I cried my eyes out reading this book, I felt love reading this book, I felt too many emotions to list. But for me if you can laugh, cry, have to hold your breath while reading a book, Then for me the Author has done an amazing job bring these characters to life. I very highly recommend this book to others out there. I know you will not feel one ounce of disappointment reading this book. This will go on my All Time Favorite Reads list that I am putting together right now. Want to know something else pretty amazing? Facade, Nyrae’s next book in the series will be Adrian’s story and I know this is going to be another great one! There is no release date set in stone, but she is thinking Spring 2013. I know it is a bit away. Just think though she is obviously putting a lot of heart and love into this book, And I will be waiting patiently for it to come out. So please if you have not read this book, it is time to get off my blog and go grab a copy and start this book.
