I enjoyed Welcome to Temptation so much that I got Faking It. To me this was better than WTT. The ending was the best. The closet scene was so funny I laughed until I cried tears. I loved all the characters and wish there was another so I could revisit them. Jennifer Crusie has an excellent mix of love, romance and humor in her books. I will listen to this one many times. A couple of people said they didn't like the narrator but I thought she was great.
Faking It stands on it's own you (even though it is a sequil) Some books you have to read/listen in order but this one you don't. You will fall in love with Davey and Tillda. Now, if she could just let us know how Simon & Eve and Gwen & Thomas turn out I would be happy! More please!!
The dialog is witty, funny, and charming. Davy was wonderful and so was the entire crazy family with whom he and his friends became involved. If you just want to laugh and smile the whole time you are listening to a story or if you need to be cheered up. Purchase this audio book, its histerical. There was a good twist at the end.
I LOVED Welcome To Temptation and have listened to it numerous times so had high hopes for Faking It but it disappointed me in that the narrator doesn't make any of the characters from WTT that appear in this book sound anything like they did originally so it was like they had never existed. I had very high expectations which is my own fault but it really made a big difference to me, otherwise it's JC's usual zany and kooky characters but I really wanted Davy to sound like the Davy I knew from WTT.
This book seemed entertaining but turned out to be extremely boring. I had trouble getting through it. It is far from one of those books where you just can't stop listening.
I'm not a romance fiction reader but was in the mood for something light. Listening to the brief portion of the text plus the good reviews sold me. Problem is, Jennifer Cruise is way, way too cute. Everything is cute and quirky, even the murder. What a cute murder! Romance readers obviously love this, which confirms my low opinion of them. If you're not one and thinking about giving this a shot, don't. Susan Issacs is a far better bet.
I have enjoyed some of Jennifer Crusie's books (Bet Me, Cinderella Deal) but this.....this was painful. It took me a few tries to actually get through the book. Some of the dialoge was juvenile and it was difficult keeping up with who the various characters were. The naration was ok but he writing was terrible. Only purchase if it's on sale.
