Fans of romance don't need to look any further than the fauxmance brewing between teen idols Charlie Tracker and Fielding Withers—known on their hit TV show as Jenna and Jonah, next-door neighbors flush with the excitement of first love. But it's their off-screen relationship that has helped cement their fame, as passionate fans follow their every PDA. They grace the covers of magazines week after week. Their fan club has chapters all over the country. The only problem is their off-screen romance is one big publicity stunt, and Charlie and Fielding can't stand to be in the same room. Still, it's a great gig, so even when the cameras stop rolling, the show must go on, and on, and on. . . . Until the pesky paparazzi blow their cover, and Charlie and Fielding must disappear to weather the media storm. It's not until they're far off the grid of the Hollywood circuit that they realize that there's more to each of them than shiny hair and a winning smile.

My Thoughts
I was really excited reading Fauxmance. It has a unique and alluring title that no other YA book has. I really liked reading it and I finished it in a matter of hours.

Charlie (Jennah) and Aaron (Jonah) are celebrities. Charlie is like one of those bitchy typical celebrities. Most definitely then, she really cares about her image and how she's perceived by others. Aaron at first is called Fielding, his surname, quite a lot and then it changes into his first name Aaron. Quite confusing at first but then after a while I got the hang of it.

I really liked how the book was told in both Charlie's and Aaron's. Sometimes I didn't get whether it was told in Charlie's perspective or Aaron's perspective as the style of writing doesn't change much. However, it can be easily distinguished with them both just thinking so poorly of each other.

I've got to admit there is a whole lot of humour involved. It's really amusing who they think of one another and it's nice to see how their feelings of disgust change into love.
A very enjoyable and lighthearted read!
