“Once you start reading, you won’t be able to put it down.” - Lyssa Kay Adams, author of The Bromance Book Club
What happens when your love life becomes the talk of the town?
As birthdays go, this year’s for radio producer Everly Dean hit rock-bottom.
Worse than the “tonsillectomy birthday.” Worse than the birthday her parents decided to split (the first time). But catching your boyfriend cheating on you with his assistant?
Even clichés sting.
But this is Everly’s year! She won’t let her anxiety hold her back. She’ll pitch her podcast idea to her boss.
There’s just one problem.
Her boss, Chris, is very cute. (Of course). Also, he's extremely distant (which means he hates her, right? Or is that the anxiety talking)?
And, Stacey the DJ didn’t mute the mic during Everly’s rant about Simon the Snake (syn: Cheating Ex).
That’s three problems.
Suddenly, people are lining up to date her, Bachelorette-style, fans are voting (Reminder: never leave house again), and her interest in Chris might be a two-way street. It’s a lot for a woman who could gold medal in people-avoidance. She’s going to have to fake it ‘till she makes it to get through all of this.
Perhaps she’ll make a list: The Ten Rules for Faking It.
Because sometimes making the rules can find you happiness when you least expect it.
“A funny, sweet rom com from a fresh, sparkling new voice.” – Andie J. Christopher, USA Today Bestselling author of Not The Girl You Marry

I really appreciated the realistic depiction of anxiety in the main character. It's a topic that is often approached but usually misses the mark in my opinion. The romance was a slow burn, which is nice. No insta-love here. If the author came back with round two, focusing on a new romance for a different couple, I'd pick it up.
I sat down and read this book in one day. It was absolutely adorable! Everly represents every girl that has ever tried to find love despite all the anxiety and childhood trauma.
When Ev decides to take on a new challenge at work, the chaos and fun helps her recognize who she is and why she’s amazing.
10/10 fun romance!
