Publisher's Summary

Faking It never felt so good in this red-hot new stand-alone by New York Times best-selling author K. Bromberg - available in audio first!

Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn't surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it. Now I find out he's a rich Australian entrepreneur, and he wants to make up for tanking my interview. 

Yes, he's impossibly hot - but he's also an arrogant jackass - so...no thanks. 

But after a little white lie I tell spirals out of control, I'm somehow offered the chance to play Zane's girlfriend to help promote his new dating website - and the best part? He can't say no because he'll get caught in his lie, too. 

Little did I know this would entail sharing a tour bus with him for the next few months. The fact that the bus has just one bed isn't the most ideal of circumstances, but this spokesperson gig might be the kick in the pants my career needs, so why not take a chance? 

Famous last words

Now I'm crisscrossing the country - and sharing that bed - with the one guy I can't stand. And even worse, my traitorous body is wondering at every turn what it's like to be down under the gorgeous Australian. But as the miles unfurl, so does our passion...and if I'm not careful, I might end up believing that fairy tales really do come true.

Editorial Review

Blame it on the psychology of love, blame it on fate—whatever it is, fake relationships pretty much 100% never work out. And by that I mean these couples fail at being fake. You laugh, but I bet if you tried it, you'd end up accidentally faking it until you made it real, too. See why K. Bromberg is so intrigued by one of our favorite romance tropes as she discusses the workings of this dynamic in her new Audible Original Faking It. —Melissa B., Audible Editor

COMPELLING, COMPULSIVE & A COMPLETE BARGAIN

Well wow.. that was eight and a half compelling and delicious hours of fun and flirts as Zane, the sexy, handsome, arrogant, opinionated, mega-rich Australian Entrepreneur gets sideswiped and out-manoeuvred by Harlow - an unemployed, down-to-earth, sassy, sweet, clever beauty who makes his blood boil.. but not in a good way! Along this couple’s addictive ‘fake’, yet very real, romance there’s lots of sizzles as their chemistry ignites and there’s lots of conversations that start and end with barbed banter. Zane doesn’t believe in love and there’s an invisible wall with vigilant security surrounding his heart.. but, over time, that wall slowly topples.. and the invisible light of true love shines brightly on a once dead heart. Their animosity towards each other only fuels their desires in this Cat and mouse - push ‘n pull - enemies to lovers dual POV romance that was expertly narrated.

Worth a credit? Yes it definitely would’ve been - it’s K. Bromberg and I love her.. BUT it’s in the Romance Package deal.. so I got this little gem for next to nothing.. how happy am I right now.

Oh man!!!

This book was great- filled with humor, amazing characters, and a world-class narration team. K Bromberg always packs a punch and did not hold back here. I loved it!

Erin Mallon is seriously my unicorn! She can do no wrong. I was so glad to see this combo and would have handed over way more than one credit for it. It's worth it.

Boring Story

The narrating was actually quite excellent! The problem with this book is the story was so boring. It was extremely predictable. I got to about the 50% point and simply didn't want to waste any more of my life on this book. You read the synopsis, and your pretty much get the entire story.....not much more to add. If the story gets really good in the second half, I will never know.

Sassy fake relationship

Refreshing, fun read with great banter and ever better chemistry. I always love a good fake romance and this one is definitely one of my top favs!

The narration was fantastic. Ruppert's accent definitely takes this book to the next level. Erin and Ruppert did a great job bringing these characters to life!

Erin and Rupert are perfection!

Faking It is K. Bromberg's newest standalone romance which releases in Audio first! I typically read the book first and then listen, but with Faking It I got to hear the story for the first time and it's a totally different experience. I had no idea what was going to happen next and Erin and Rupert kept me gasping and waiting for more. Erin is one of my favorite narrators and she killed it as Harlow. She does emotion and the male voice perfectly. Rupert tickled my ears with his sexy voice and accent. It's the story of mistaken identity that leads to apologies, little white lies and then having to pretend to be in a relationship with the world watching. Harlow and Zane have to fake it to get what they want in the end. But what happens when they can't fake it anymore? Can they let go of their pasts and find happiness? Together? I loved this story! I love listening to the raw emotions these narrators are so great at. I sighed, laughed, cried and moaned along with them. It was funny, sexy, fun, and emotional. Overall, it was fantastic and I loved every word.

Brilliant story with perfect narration! A must listen!

Another fantastic and brilliant story by K. Bromberg. Absolutely loved it. Oh Zane... Cocky, sexy and so easy to fall for. Harlow is one of my favorite heroines to read. Feisty, strong and willing to fight for what she believes in. Their chemistry is off the charts! Their banter will leave you laughing or breathless wanting more. The narration is perfection. Erin Mallon and Rupert Channing nailed the character. You will devour this story. I highly recommend this book!

sweet, light and sexy! And that accent...wow!

Such a light, sweet and sexy story that will make you laugh and swoon the whole time.If you are an audio lover or new to it, this was definitely a great listen – perfect narration by Rupert Channing and Erin Mallon and let me just tell you: you don’t want to miss that hot accent! I caught myself sighing every time I heard him say the number of the chapter and then Zane. Amazing job in reading this story and transferring all the emotions from it.

This might be the first book by K. Bromberg that didn’t make me cry, but I loved it anyway. I’m a huge fan of stories about fake relationships and this was no exception. It was a cute and funny read, full of witty banter and some really hilarious situations.

Zane was a cocky, arrogant Aussie – the typical bad boy who didn’t believe in love although he owned a dating website. He was used to always getting what he wanted and being in control. But Harlow was his equal match in sassiness, confidence, and defiance, so from here on the fun began. They were both trying to have the upper hand in this unusual predicament they found themselves in. I was laughing so hard with those two and enjoying myself immensely with the sexy banter between them and their witty come-backs.

They were trying to fight this attraction between them but apparently failed miserably. There was a lot of pent up sexual tension in the beginning and it was cute watching them develop feelings for each other while trying to fool themselves into believing it was all FAKE.

When they finally succumbed to their inner desires, it was like an explosion of passion and steamy hot scenes. Really sexy and do I need to remind you again of the hot AF voice reading some of these scenes…Phew! Still fanning myself!

I loved the little challenges they had to face. Loved how they dealt with everything as a true couple, although constantly denying the idea. Loved the little twists here and there and the whole ending part was so sweet, it left me with a huge grin on my face and warmed my heart.

Perfect combo of story and narration. Give it a try if you’re in the mood for a light, funny, sexy read. And don’t forget the accent. It’s so so good it’ll sure make you swoon.

Fake it till you make it!

The ultimate game of cat and mouse, Faking It was a refreshing listen that had me smiling from ear to ear.

Zane and Harlow had instant chemistry that came across in spades. They both knew the right buttons to push at exactly the right times. Their flow was fun, yet sexy and I looked forward to hearing just what issue they had to conquer next. The narration was great. Erin Mallon and Rupert Channing complement each other well, which made for an enjoyable listen. As with all of Kristy’s books, Faking It had a solid storyline and addictive characters. A definite must listen!

Sometimes you got to fight for your own Fairytale

I’ve just finished listening to this on audio 🎧

Zane is your typical man who shuts down his feelings whenever the slight thought of anything past 1/2 nights.
The attitude of Love is Bull isn’t going to set any woman’s world on 🔥

Harlow is one strong ass woman and she’s determined to get her life to turn around and when an opportunity arises for her to take she doesn’t quite realise what’s about to happen.

Life changes for both of them but when things do a complete 180,
but who’s about to make the first move?

Fun cheeky with a little bit of real life who isn’t down for some K Bromberg bringing us some swoon worthy characters 👌🏻

Sometimes you’ve got to fight for your own Fairytale ❤️

A firm favourite for me

Enemies to lovers to so much more. You know the story, just sex, no feelings, they’ll walk away once it’s out of their system, yada, yada, yada. Well that was Zane (super hot and arrogant) and Harlow (gorgeous, with a heart of gold), they meet, misunderstand each other, come to an agreement, lie to the world, fake a relationship and then of course deny their feelings. Fab story, wonderful writing with interesting characters. I loved it, I also loved the narration, I’m not too familiar with either Erin Mallon or Rupert Channing, I’ll most definitely be looking into getting more of their audios.

Confusing

I would have maybe enjoyed this book more if the Narrator didn't sound like she was singing the story I found that really annoying it was either being sung or trying to make in into a sung song voice the story is not to bad but that just didn't work for me.

Easy story

Easy story. I wish Rupert Channing had narrated the whole book. He was fantastic as both Zane and Harlow. Erin Mallon’s horrendous attempt at an Australian accent aside, I find her sing song way reading and extending the last word of a sentence so annoying that I began to read the Harlow chapters instead, then came back to the audible version to listen to the Zane chapters.
