S between Claire and Bauer are both funny and soul searching as they slowly reveal their inner selves to one another with amazing slow burning chemistry This book made me smile shed a tear or two and it made me laugh and feel Oh boy the emotions and swooniness of this book is off the charts I loved getting to know Claire as an individual not as a twin a Ward sister or The Houdini Solution: Put Creativity and Innovation to work by thinking inside the box part of the Washington Wolves extended family And Bauer is so much than he is given credit for he has become my favourite male lead character that Ms Sorensen has created thus farThe writing is smooth and deep capturing the readers attention and imagination making Faked a very addictive read that I believe is Karla Sorensen s best writing yet I m a fan of the Washington Wolves series and Focused the first in this series and Molly s story and I can not get enough of the Ward family I so look forward to reading Lia s story which releases later this year5 stars for this amazing book Thank you for the early copy I received This is an honest review and all opinions are my own I love the Ward family so it was great to read the next in the series This was well written with endearing likeable characters I felt so sorry for Bauer He is such a wonderful guy I kind of wish someone ie Claire had called out Adele and his dad on their behaviour Claire was a favourite of mine She was always a little overshadowed by Lia so it was great to see her coming into her own I liked the exploration of child behaviour on adults too this added depth to the story A great readCan t wait to read Lia s story next Really enjoyed this book This book got my emotions going I laughed and cried I would recommend it Fantastic book I ve loved so much this story maybe it s my favorite one of this series Bauer an Claire are wonderful characters the supposed bad boy sweet and careful toward her and Claire understands him in a way his family never had And naturally the Ward family is back This book was written for very young adults or teenagers This is only the second book I have read from Karla and once again I really enjoyed itClaire and Bauer love that name connection is because of a fake relationship hence the title of this book This is a trope I find myself drawn to over and over again I thought Karla s version was greatThese two had a fantastic chemistry right from the start I liked how Bauer was open to exploring this right from the start It was up to Claire to lookast other Cybercrime and Digital Forensics: An Introduction people serceptions and see Bauer for the man he truly wasAfter reading the epilogue I know I need to read Karla s next bookI voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book The story is well written and i love that there is some sychology behind the rofile of the characters Once I started I couldn t The Meaning of Difference: American Constructions of Race, Sex and Gender, Social Class, Sexual Orientation, and Disability put it down Faked is book 2 of the Ward Sisters Series by Karla SorensenI love Claire and BauerThey re so different but that makes themerfect for each otherClaire is a smart and beautiful girl And Bauer is a tattooed good looking One Small Step: An Anthology of Discoveries professional snowboarder all of this alone makes him seem hot But he is so much than his appearance and the whole Bauerackage makes him super hot And all i m thinking right now is Where can i get my own Bauer don t tell my hubby While reading Focused i thought Claire would end up with Finn But Bauer is definitely the right one for her I m glad it.

Went like thisI think they re everything the other one needs in his life They help the other one to be the best version of himself And i like that the most at their relationshipI was looking forward to the release of this book but due to my reading schedule i wasn t able to read it right away And when the time to start reading this book finally came my expectations were super high But Karla Sorensen did not disappoint I love every single thing about this bookAnd now i can t wait for Floored to release in december The little sneak eak of Lia and her mystery guy left me greedy for This was SO GOOD It s my first time reading something by Sorensen and I might just need to go a little one click crazy on her books because it was FLAWLESS from start to finish Twin swaps are a guilty leasure trope of mine because they can lay out in a variety of ways and there s a level of tension that just works for me This is the kind that s executed just right so it won t hit on any of the things that might bug some readers it s definitely not a love triangle there s no uestion that these two are Birds perfect for each other and the backstory is handled with care I was incredibly impressed by how well Sorensen structured the relationship because a story that starts out with the wrong brother and the wrong sister can go down a uestionableath uickly but that is definitely not the case here It s got so much great dialogue characters who are complex but easy to like tension that comes from the CHEMISTRY that sparks between them and a bad boy hero who will absolutely melt your heart I loved every minute of itThe story follows Claire a 21 year old who has been harboring a secret crush on her twin s best friend for years Though she was able to Tales from the Ballpark Tales from the Ballpark Tales from the Ballpark: More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told More of the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told put it behind her for a long time its recently resurfaced so Claire s willing than sherobably should be to step into her sister s shoes for an event Thinking she ll spend an evening with her crush albeit while Isocrates I (The Oratory of Classical Greece, vol. 4) pretending to be her sister Claire is shocked when her crush s brother shows up instead Nothing like his brother Bauer is tattooed and temperamental the outcast of his family Bauer s always been of a good time guy but there s no way he s turning down his chance to spend the evening with the kind of girl he s only ever dreamed of ending up with As the two navigate the complexities of the evening there s no denying that they ve got the kind of chemistry you don t see every dayI loved the opposites attract feel the deep conversations and the level of depth that s achieved over the course of such a short time These two have never met before so they re starting fresh and getting to know one another in a way they wouldn t have considered before Itlays out like it s in real time and the reader definitely feels like they re falling along with these two There s something incredibly enticing about a bad boy being so vulnerable opening himself up to something new and different Bauer is definitely that guy you will fall for him within minutes of their first meeting This stays light and reads uickly but absolutely touches on some subjects that aren t easy I devoured it at an embarrassingly uick speed and can t wait to check out from the author I was lucky enough to receive an ARC then Robot Programming: A Practical Guide to Behavior-Based Robotics purchased it for my collection and am voluntarily leaving a review of this opposites attract romance. N his shoulder the size of Mt Olympus The kind of bad boy that Claire has never been attracted to before Now the good girl is with the wrong brother for a night and when the conseuence is that they have toretend to be together for an event its nothing she could have redicted But maybe just maybe what makes Bauer so bad is exactly what Claire nee.
