MF - Faked by Karla Sorensen

Title: Faked
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: June 16, 2020

Amazon Link - Available in KU

Every action has a consequence, and Claire Ward knows it. And yet, even knowing that her decision to swap places with her identical twin sister, Lia, for a night could be disastrous, she still does it.


Because it will give her an evening with the man she’s been crushing on for years, Lia’s best friend, Finn. 

Miss Straight A Student has thought through all the angles, and knows the risk is worth it. And everything would have been fine, if Finn had been the one to show up at her door. 

But it wasn’t. 

Bauer Davis— Finn’s half brother and his exact opposite in just about every definable category is the one waiting for her instead. A professional snowboarder, Bauer is covered in ink, full of attitude, and has a chip on 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 consequence is that they have to pretend to be together for an event, it’s nothing she could have predicted. But maybe, just maybe, what makes Bauer so bad, is exactly what Claire needs.

My Rating - 4.5 Stars!

Faked is an enjoyable read by Karla Sorensen. 

With twins trading places, 
some deception and lies of omission place Claire and Bauer together. Theirs is a world of famous athletes, family issues, and an unexpected attraction. 

With an unexpected evening together, forced proximity and a snow storm, the two discover the chemistry and heat that exists between them. 

Claire and Bauer are certainly opposites, with nothing in common. There banter is fun and the natural way everything progresses for them is enjoyable.

Bauer's family issues are horrible, with his backstory fully developing him into a lovable and sympathetic character. The true natural of his personality is slowly unveiled and totally unexpected.

Told in alternating first person pov, the author excels in bringing the emotions front and center. There's a lot of empathy and intrigue throughout and it's all well written.

Faked is an enjoyable romance. Karla Sorenson combines athletes, twins, and a whole lot of family issues in this delightful new adult romance. 



Well, let’s see ... I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone's face, then I've done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.
