    14. Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickPlaying Pretend by Juliana Haygert is a light and quick read that left me happy and smiling This book was really easy to get into, and I breezed right through reading this one I found it really entertaining, and I liked the characters a lot I liked that there were politics and some scandal thrown in, but that it was still a fun and sweet read This was the first book I have read by Juliana Haygert, but I really liked her writing style and it de [...]

    15. I had been raised to be a perfect lady At least on the outside No one in the world knew what was going on inside.The last book I read by Juliana Haygert was Breaking the Reins, and it was such an intense read, that I was looking forward to reading something from her that was less gut wrenching and emotional I wanted to be swept up in romance and fall in love with her characters I wanted something a little bit hot And Playing Pretend didn t disappoint on any of those fronts.This book has the most [...]

    16. The synopsis has certainly pulled me in I mean, a girl protagonist who has two facades, and keeping up with all the pretending How s that going to end for her I was really curious, and that s what got me hooked up.It started on Charlotte s Spring Break, wherein she got to meet Mason and they have this carefree, spring fling romance and not really get to know each other, thinking that they will never see each other again Everything turns differently when they realize they live near each other Mas [...]

    17. GENRE New Adult ContemporaryTHEME Romance, PoliticsRECEIVED TourBLOG seeingnight REVIEW Such a cute, sweet and sexy read that was quick but overall great story with some political scandals in the mix This one reminded me of a mix between the movie First Daughter and Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols, which made it a bundle of fun to read.Playing Pretend follows Charlotte McClain who just had the best spring break ever for once in her life she could be herself without the worry of her mothers contro [...]

    18. Lies and politics where have I seen that before This is the first book I read by Juliana Haygert and I enjoyed it a lot More than I thought I would, given the age of the main female character, as I usually have problems connecting with nineteen year old characters Charlotte was a good surprise in that aspect Mason, on the other hand, is a hunk and a bartender What s there not to like, right In fact, he s got a lot in common with the male lead man in my second novel, who s also a gorgeous, sweet [...]

    23. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.What drew me into this story The cover and the blurb No doubt I m a sucker for forbidden romance and was excited to read Ms Haygert s work.The plot worked pretty well girl from an affluent family with very rigid expectations unable to be with the guy who has had to work for everything in his life The push pull of the characters was there setting up good conflict and angst But I struggled The middle of the story a lot of wash, ri [...]

    24. A light, humorous read perfect for a spring afternoon in the hammock I received this book in request for a review I will keep this as spoiler free as possible In Playing Pretend by Juliana Haygert I have read another of her books as well , the reader is artfully introduced to Charlotte the daughter of Virginia s current governor with Presidential aspirations and Mason, a hardworking bartender trying to support his education dreams and family simultaneously I say artfully because the reader is th [...]

    25. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.3.5 StarsPlaying Pretend is a lighthearted, fast paced NA romance that I read from start to finish without putting it down In some ways this is an Us vs Them kind of story with main character Charlotte caught in the middle I can t imagine what it would be like to pretend day in and day out to be someone you re not It must be so emotionally taxing Frankly, I m surprised Charlotte wasn t a gibbering idiot.Charlotte has spent her [...]

    27. Playing Pretend has not been so fun or real This was a light, sexy dive into the rich and powerful world where being someone else was the way to survive the game being played For Charlotte one carefree week of fun in the sun and in the arms of a very delicious stranger gave her a sense of who she wanted to truly be, but life has a way of taking you back down the road you don t want to go Back home and in her world Charlotte finds that being the real person was no longer acceptable and it was tim [...]

    28. Ugh I d hate to be a fucking governors daughter Peyton was cold as ice like 90% of the time, always fearing for her public image and crap I felt like screaming at Charlotte to just ditch the bitch Like, you re 19 girl, get off your ass like last year and live like the bum you secretly act like It took her most of the book to realise she could do things on her own and didn t need her mother, and while it would hurt her, she would eventually get over it Weirdly enough Charlotte, while claiming to [...]

    29. First ImpressionsThe title got my attention I am drawn to stories where people are pretending to be together This story wasn t one of those but it is what got my attention.The CharactersI really like Mason He s a sweetie From his name to his character, he s just a great guy A gorgeous bartender, he s walking sexy Not a player, not a bad boy, he s one of the few good ones Coming out of a long relationship that ended badly, he s hurting The week he spends with Charlotte heals him but then she s go [...]

    30. My Rating 4.5 out of 5 StarsMy Review The beginning was amazing The middle was even amazing, and the climax Oh my gosh I think this climax ranks in the top 10 s or most amazing climaxes I ve read Then the end was sweet, but less amazing and kind of what I expected The male character, Mason, seemed a little bit too over the top in love I couldn t decide whether I liked this or not It just doesn t seem like a guy thing It was new, that s for sure This weirdly goes along with Charlotte, too What m [...]
