Ten Rules for Faking It
December 29, 2020
“Impossible to read without smiling―escapist romantic comedy at its heartwarming best.” – New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Layne
“I adored this book! Sophie Sullivan has written a fast-paced, sweet romance full of heart and truth. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to put it down.” - Lyssa Kay Adams, author of The Bromance Book Club
"Die-hard fans of The Bachelorette will enjoy this novelistic take on the theme." - Publishers Weekly
"A wholesome, slow-burn romance that will warm your heart and offer a glimpse into social anxiety disorder. This is a Hallmark movie in book form." - Helen Hoang, USA Today bestselling author of The Kiss Quotient and The Bride Test
As birthdays go, this year’s birthday for radio producer Everly Dean hit an all-time low.
Worse than the birthday she had a tonsillectomy. Worse than the birthday her loveably reckless parents decided to split up (the first time). But catching your boyfriend cheating on you with his assistant?
Yea, even clichés sting.
But no matter. This is Everly Dean’s year! The year she doesn’t let her anxiety hold her back. The year she stops being the hot potato in the overblown drama of her parent’s marriage. The year she pitches her podcast idea to her boss.
There’s just one problem.
Her boss, Chris, is way too cute. (WHY did he have to be cute)? He’s also supremely respectful of her, to the point of being distant (which means he hates her, right? Or is that the anxiety talking)?
Oh, and Stacey, best friend/ DJ, forgot to mute the mic as Everly ranted about Simon the Snake (syn: see Cheating Ex).
Maybe she has three problems.
Suddenly, people are lining up to date her, Bachelorette-style, fans are voting for their favorite dates (Note to self: never leave house again), and meanwhile, that spark she feels for Chris might be a two-way street. It’s a lot to handle for a woman who considers avoiding people an Olympic sport. She’s going to have to fake it ‘till she makes it to get through all of this.
Perhaps she’ll make a list of three (that’s barely a list)
Five (no one likes an odd number)
Ten rules for faking it.
Because sometimes making the rules can find you happiness when you least expect it.
