Synopsis: What happens when your love life becomes the talk of the town?

As birthdays go, this year’s for radio producer Everly Dean hit rock-bottom.

Worse than the “tonsillectomy birthday.” Worse than the birthday her parents decided to split (the first time). But catching your boyfriend cheating on you with his assistant?

Even clichés sting.

But this is Everly’s year! She won’t let her anxiety hold her back. She’ll pitch her podcast idea to her boss.

There’s just one problem.

Her boss, Chris, is very cute. (Of course). Also, he's extremely distant (which means he hates her, right? Or is that the anxiety talking)?

And, Stacey the DJ didn’t mute the mic during Everly’s rant about Simon the Snake (syn: Cheating Ex).

That’s three problems.

Suddenly, people are lining up to date her, Bachelorette-style, fans are voting (Reminder: never leave the house again), and her interest in Chris might be a two-way street. It’s a lot for a woman who could gold medal in people-avoidance. She’s going to have to fake it ‘till she makes it to get through all of this.

Perhaps she’ll make a list: The Ten Rules for Faking It.

Because sometimes making the rules can find you happiness when you least expect it.

My Review: If anybody knows me at all they know that I'm not a big fan of contemporary romance but this one intrigued me so I requested it on NetGalley. I'm glad that I got picked to read it because I enjoyed it very much. Everly is dealing with social anxiety and her parent's neverending relationship issues, (which have skewed her views on love) along with the consequence of blurting out on the radio that her boyfriend cheated on her with his personal assistant. The overwhelming support she gets from the town prompts the radio station to start a bachelorette type contest for her.

On the other hand, we have Chris the station manager who just wants his father to uphold his part of the deal they struck. Chris also has a tendre for Everly and gets jealous when she goes on her dates. Eventually, these two get their acts together and finally start dating. 

 I enjoyed this book and I will read more books from the author in the future. However, I would like to see some love scenes as this one had a decided lack of any. 

Rating: 4 stars
