Publisher's Summary

Can the truth really set you free? Genevieve Applegate is tired of her stagnant life and she's ready to make a change by going after her dream job in New Jersey. The listing seems ideal when Genevieve scans it, but a big surprise comes at her interview: Out Shore Magazine is an LGBT publication. She's willing to work around this detail with an innocent lie, one she'll keep from her longtime boyfriend as well as her new boss, Harper Davies. Out Shore has been Harper's main focus since her heart was broken years ago, but Genevieve may be the one to change that with her fresh perspective and charm. While both women enjoy what they learn about each other, Genevieve is most surprised by what she learns about herself. Pretending to be a lesbian has never felt more honest.

    Story
    "Good Car; Bad Engine"

    The author tells an excellent story and the whole concept of the novel is a good one; unfortunately the underlying concept drops the level precipitously. Genevieve Applegate is a straight woman who answers an add without really looking at it and finds herself posing as a lesbian and writing for an LGBT periodical. The premise that causes the problem for me is that the author takes the job without doing any research or preparing a cover story; thus keeps being surprised by questions and situations she would have logically come up with stories to cover. Then even when apprised of the nature of the office culture, she does only cursory research and still doesn't assemble any sort of fictional life story. Then there is the shock she feels when approached by women as if it's an unimaginable happening; every time it happens. The lead characters are well drawn and likable and the secondary players work quite well. If you can appreciate a good story despite a bad premise and can suspend disbelief in order to enjoy a good narrative, give this one a shot.

    "Excellent audio!"

    I really enjoyed Fake it till You Make it. I was a little put off by the title. But ended up buying it anyway. Interesting story of a young journalist trying to make it. Most readers/listeners are going to have problems with a lie in the work place and to fellow co workers. This is where the debates will center on. When is it acceptable ? Or never acceptable? AJ Ferraro does her usual excellent job with the narration.
