Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection. Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom's dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it's what he wants too. Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another - losing themselves in each other to forget about their pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.
Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
This book took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting to fall in love with these characters. This book was intense and it was heart wrenching to watch both characters struggle. In the end, they both find a way to help each other overcome and fall in love. Warning....I needed tissues for this book as well.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
Keeping in mind that this is a young adult romance I found it a good book. I did find some situations and reactions a bit immature but the couple is 19 and 21 year olds so I guess it was understandable. They both had some serious issues with their mothers and that was pretty emotional and sad. By the end I really liked how this couple overcame their circumstances and found a way to help each other and make their lives together much better.
The narrator was ok as well. She did read a bit slow for my taste so I found myself increasing the speed to 1.25 at times. She did add the intensity and sadness that some parts needed and that was enjoyable.
Considering the story and the narration I'd say I recommend this book if it's on sale or if you're young and still in college.
This book was amazing, The first Nyrae book I have heard read/listen too. The story was wonderful very emotional and gripping. I don't think I can handle another one. But it was well written and a great story that unraveled in a great way. She develop the characters and it flowed wonderfully. I cried. But a great book and worth the credit!!
I liked the way Colton was with his mother.. I didn't really care for how shallow Cheyenne was in the beginning.
I liked Macy's ability to do a pretty good guy voice.
If this book was made into a movie I'd watch it but not in the theaters.
Better character development, a less predictable plot line.
The characters all sounded the same.
I suppose if you were a teenager looking for a trashy novel this would be it.
The book was just too predictable. I didn't ever need to finish because it was far too predictable. I listen while working out and this book made them feel longer. I expected a fun easy read but it wasn't engaging enough.
Books are to me what exercising is to those enthusiast. My pleasure is sitting down with a good book,its like" Calgon it takes me away"
The honesty this couple shared with each other from the start.
I would rather not say it would probably be considered a spoiler.
True love and understanding.
No I haven't but I am looking forward to hearing more from her!
Yes, the death of Colt's Mom.
Thoroughly enjoyed the narration of this story! Hope she does Facade as well!
