Meet Danielle Ellison!

Danielle Ellison is a nomad, a lover of make-believe, and a bit of coffee snob. Always on the lookout for an adventure and the next story, she has had more zip codes and jobs than she can count.

In addition to writing, she’s the founder of the NoVa TEEN Book Festival in Virginia and a teen librarian. When she’s not busy with books, she’s probably watching her favorite shows, drinking coffee, or fighting her nomadic urges.

She is settled in Georgia (for now) with her cat, Simon, but you can always find her on twitter @DanielleEWrites.

Meet The Sweetheart Sham!

In a small town like Culler, South Carolina, you guard your secrets like you guard your cobbler recipe: with your life. Georgia Ann Monroe knows a thing or two about secrets: she’s been guarding the truth that her best friend Will is gay for years now. But what happens when a little white lie to protect him gets her into a fake relationship…and then the boy of her dreams shows up?

Enter Beau Montgomery: Georgie’s first love, hotter than ever, and much too much of a southern gentleman to ever pursue someone else’s girl. There’s no way to come clean to Beau while still protecting Will. But bless their hearts, they live in Culler—where secrets always have a way of revealing themselves.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a hilarious “fakeship,” a scorching-hot impossible relationship, and a heartwarming best-friendship that will make you want to call your best friend right here, right now.

My Top Five Fake Romances in Movies

 

5. Drive Me Crazy

Melissa Joan Hart and the boy next door? Come on, this is a classic – and there’s that whole cheesy Britney number at the end.

 

 

4. Easy A

While not technically about one romance, this whole movie is based on pretending to be something your not – and it does involve a love-interest so it makes the list.

 

 

 

3. The Proposal

Funny, romantic, sizzling chemistry, awkward strippers, Betty White one-liners and a mostly naked Ryan Reynolds – this movie has it all. 

 

 

2. The Decoy Bride

If you haven’t seen this movie then run (don’t walk!) to Netflix and catch a glimpse of David Tennant being adorable and the voice of Merida (from Brave) acting as his stand-in decoy bride, because you know, when you’re marrying a celebrity that’s what you need so you can hide the wedding and nothing can go wrong…oh yeah, except marrying the decoy!

 

 

1. 10 Things I Hate About You

This, to me, is the ULTIMATE fakeship story. It has not one, but two fake romances, and it doesn’t always go smoothly but it does show you that family, friendship, and singing in the bleachers can go a long way to win hearts. It’s also got one of the saddest monologues in the history of teen movies, which I still cry at every single time. (RIP Heath Ledger)

Bonus: I also love Hallmark Christmas movies, and since it is the season for these lovelies, I know you can find a boatload of fake romances here…because they’re the best.
