Asking for Trouble | Liz Young
post image

Liz Young is my favorite romance author, and I wish she'd written more books! This one starts with a #fauxmance between Sophy and Josh- she needs a date to keep her mom off her back, and he's just the guy to do it. But of course, Sophy develops real feelings for him, just as a family drama starts to heat up. The popular movie The Wedding Date was based on this book, but changed some important elements of the story. #TropesInAugust

Klou I've never heard of this author. I'll have to go check out her books on Goodreads. Sounds good!! 2y

Fingersmith | Sarah Waters

This is probably my favorite Sarah Waters title and it does have a #fauxmance of sorts, but not in the typical Romance genre way...instead the fake romance is a way to cheat someone out of their rightful inheritance...

#TropesInAugust @Klou

There is so many books with this plot of having to fake a relationship or marriage it is almost a cliche.

Klou There are! Though I've never heard of either of the ones you've chosen. Great! 👏👏 2y

#tropesinaugust.#fauxmance. A fluffy and fun romance that involves two people pretending to be newlyweds, when everyone else at the wedding, including the bride and groom, get food poisoning and can‘t go themselves. So the brides sister has her and someone else go in their place. Only problem is the sister and guy can‘t stand each other.

Klou Love the sound of this one!! Great pick! 2y

Day 3 - #Fauxmance #TropesInAugust

Fake relationship for publicity

Nicole Richie & Brody Jenner briefly dated in 2006. Brody and his good friend Spencer Pratt gave an interview to Details magazine. Spencer revealed that Brody only dated Nicole for publicity. Brody claimed that he really cared about Nicole. No one really believed him though. If he really cared, he probably wouldn‘t have waited so long to speak up.
