Mia and Jake have known each other their whole lives. They’ve endured summer vacations, Sunday brunches, even dentist visits together. Their mothers, who are best friends, are convinced that Mia and Jake would be the perfect couple, even though they can’t stand to be in the same room together.

After Mia’s mom turns away yet another cute boy, Mia and Jake decide they’ve have had enough. Together, they hatch a plan to get their moms off their backs. Permanently. All they have to do is pretend to date and then stage the worst breakup of all time—and then they’ll be free.

The only problem is, maybe Jake and Mia don’t hate each other as much as they once thought... (Goodreads)

The first thing that drew me to Fake It Till You Break It was the absolutely adorable cover, and once I read the summary, I knew I would have to read this book ASAP. I love a good rom-com, and this sounded right up my alley. I was also really looking forward to finally reading something by Jenn P. Nguyen, so there was that as well!

Fake It Till You Break it was a very fast-paced, fun read. One of the things that I liked most about this book was the storyline. Not only was it an enemies-to-lovers story, but it was also a neighbors/ex-friends-to-lovers story. Needless to say, I was hooked as I flew through the pages. There were a few things in the story that I wish had been a little more detailed, but otherwise I really enjoyed it!

Another thing that I liked about this book were the characters. Jake and Mia were super cute, and it was fun watching their relationship grow over the course of the book. I loved that their moms wanted them to be together so much, but they did everything they could to resist. (I am a mom and I could totally see me doing this if I were in this situation. Ha!) I do wish we had gotten to know them a little bit better, especially Jake’s love of music and Mia’s love of theater, as well as some of the secondary characters, as they all seemed like so much fun.

Overall; Fake It Till You Break It was a super quick, adorable read, and I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to read the book! I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more books by Jenn P. Nguyen, and will most definitely be checking out her previous book, The Way to Game the Walk of Shame, which I’ve had on my TBR for a while now! If you’re looking for a quick, fun rom-com, do check out Fake It Till You Break It!
