Jason just wants a date with Harley.
Harley just wants a date with Trent.
Trent's still getting over Stephanie.

When Harley and Jason decide to fake date, they uncover a school of deceptions. Trent's got a secret, but so does Jason. And the more time Harley spends secretly kissing her fake boyfriend, the further she gets from her dreams with Trent.

Worst of all, Harley's mom is getting cozy with her hot massage therapy student, and even Harley's Reverend Dad can't fake not being bothered by it. But when the masks finally come off, can everyone handle the real truth?

Young Romance of Chances and Choices

A sweet, young romance of chance, choices, and a little stubborn tease.

First glance at the cover image (including the font choice, which I love!), and you just know sweetness is on its way.

Harley has a strong sense about her, yet a snippet of spunk that threatens to escape through each of her words. She has that typical girl sensibility about her, characteristic of a high school girl from a small town. But there's also a depth to her that, for a while, not even she can see.

Now Jason is just so ... SO! He's the guy who girls would crush on but only has eyes for one girl, and nothing will change that. At times, I wanted to reach through the pages and beyond Moore's word and give him a big hug. And he has more patience than most guys his age would. Just goes to show the male heart can be determined and faithful.

Such a classic stage: girl pretends to like boy #1, getting boy #1 to agree to help her, in hopes of making boy #2 like her. The difference in TTAF is Miss Harley believes her plan is sure-fire. She forgets that guy #1 is the new boy she recently met in a smash-up kind of way and has yet to get to know him, and that boy #2 is a childhood friend--and has always been with other girls. AND it all backfires, which I loved!

My passionate reads are usually of the paranormal or otherworldly nature. But I honestly couldn't put this story down. Harley was just awesome, finally taking a risk to get her old friend to notice her, but ended up confusing herself more than she thought possible. Mix in a surprise revelation about her crush, and I found this young adult read full of romantic charm with a triangle of trouble in the making.

Lastly, the writing is honest and pure, concise in its presentation of the story. I'd label this quick, easy, and satisfying on all counts.
