Thank you so much to the publishers and Netgalley for sending me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review!
Natalie is living her dream: topping the charts and setting records as a Brazilian pop star… until she’s dumped spectacularly on live television. Not only is it humiliating–it could end her career.
Her PR team’s desperate plan? A gorgeous yet oh-so-fake boyfriend. Nati reluctantly agrees, but William is not what she expected. She was hoping for a fierce bad boy–not a soft-hearted British indie film star. While she fights her way back to the top with a sweet and surprisingly swoon-worthy boy on her arm, she starts to fall for William–and realizes that maybe she’s the biggest fake of them all. Can she reclaim her voice and her heart?
This book left me with a very full heart and a huge smile on my face. It was the fake dating young adult book that I needed in my life. I cannot wait to see more books by Gabriela Martins in the world and I will certainly be reading them as soon as I can.
If you are a fan of fake dating, celebrity romances and general adorableness, then this is the book for you to pick up. Gabriela Martins has written a novel which is fun, captivating and bound to put a smile on your face.
Nati is such an excellent main character who I admire a lot. She is brave, we get to see her grow and learn to be true to herself throughout the book. We also get to learn about Nati and her Brazilian culture which I loved. It was explored throughout the book and the author truly shows the culture off well. Nati is such a breath of fresh air.
William, oh William you are a star! He is adorable, deep and a down-to-earth guy who I could very easily have read an entire book from the perspective of. Also, Nati’s friends and their relationships were so sweet. We get to see them and Nati and how much they care for each other. On top of seeing some wonderful friendship moments.
I have to say I would have loved the main characters to have been just a little bit older. I feel as though it would have made all that happens throughout the book just a little bit more believable and wonderful. It did not put me off enjoying the book at all though and was very easy for me to get past.
Overall, this book was sweet, heart-warming and brought a huge smile to my face. I would highly recommend this book to fans of fake dating and rom coms. I cannot wait to read more books by Gabriela Martins in the future.
