Book Review: The Big Fake by Penelope Bloom

The Big Fake by Penelope Bloom
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: December 13, 2022
Publisher: Self

From USA Today bestselling author of His Banana comes a brand new romantic comedy about a recklessly charming billionaire in need of a fake girlfriend.

What do you do when you find out your boyfriend cheated?
Throw up on a gorgeous stranger. Obviously.

Rock bottom, nice to meet you.

Dean Slater–the guy wearing my breakfast–got cheated on, too.
And we have a perfectly stupid plan to make sure it never happens again.

If everyone thinks we’re together, we can both stay off the market.
No matchmaking friends and family. No more messy breakups.

We’ll keep things long distance, never be in the same room, and it’ll be smooth sailing.

Except there’s a catch.
We’re both invited to my sister’s wedding.
Oh, don’t worry, it gets worse.

My sister’s wedding to my boss.
The wedding my whole family is invited to.
And guess who else is invited?
My new fake boyfriend everybody is thrilled to finally meet in the flesh.

To survive, we’re going to have to fake it harder than either of us planned.

Messy “fake” kisses, a shared hotel room with a see-through shower door, one painfully memorable couple’s game later, and things are way past complicated.

Real feelings collide with old promises. Our big messy lie threatens to unravel my sister’s perfect weekend. And that vow I made to never date again? If it could wear boots, it would be shaking in them.

Opposites collide in this hilarious romp of an enemies-to-lovers rom-com. Watch and swoon as the charming playboy slowly realizes his unlikely fake girlfriend may be the perfect match.

The Big Fake by Penelope Bloom was a super cute story. Fake dating in books is always a lot of fun to read. I love all the build up and denial before they finally face the facts. It's adorable! Dean was adorable! I loved his personality. Pearl? She needs some work, but hey. Don't we all? Ultimately this was pretty entertaining, and I enjoyed disappearing into their world for a little bit and getting away from all the holiday hustle.

The ARC of The Big Fake was kindly provided to me by the author through Booksprout for review. The opinions are my own.

I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author and have written nearly a dozen top 50 amazon bestsellers, including four books that have hit the top 10! Despite all that, I'm still a nervous wreck before I release every new book and I still feel like I have so much more to learn about writing and publishing than I can even wrap my head around.

I'm just beyond honored and humbled that so many readers have embraced me and found enjoyment in my words, because I can't think of any better opportunity than this.

When I'm not writing and stressing about what I'm going to write, I'm trying to wrangle my two little girls who are 2 and a half and 1 and a half. When I'm not wrangling them, I'm trying to keep my husband in line.

Writing and helping run the family aren't easy, but I'd never trade it for anything!
