"Crusie has a gift for concocting nutty scenarios and witty one-liners." ( People)
"Cruise's fifth novel is an entertaining, fast-paced romp with a pleasing love story at its heart." ( Booklist)
"Aasne Vigesaa....spices up the story with a brashness that works for this novel filled with odd characters and amusing plots." ( AudioFile)

Loved it

Good to see the characters from 'welcome to Temptation " again . I'd like to meet them all in a third book but it's been so long now that probably won't happen .
Brilliant narration too!

Sometimes Audioversions really stand out.

I had to write my first review of an audiobook. I got Faking It out from the library after listening to Welcome to Temptation. I liked WtT and the narrator did an awesome job. When I tried to read Faking It I just couldn't get in to it---I think I got bored and overwhelmed. One of the few times I forced myself to read something. So I surprised myself by getting the audiobook. What a difference!!!! I don't think it was just going through the book again. Hearing it read, I understood references and picked up on rich details I had missed in the book. I felt connected to the characters and less irritated by the secondary characters like Eve and Andrew etc. And once again, the narrator is fabulous in managing the voices of so many characters. Clea's voice is memorable from WtT but I give the narrator credit for being able to bring back Davy's voice (more subtle)from his brief parts in WtT. This is one example of where the audiobook was so much better than the written page, and let me tell you I LOVE my books. I think you will like this one. The Audio version increased my rating by 2 stars.

Great Sequel

Jennifer Crusie is one of the cleverest, and funniest of the modern romance writers. This book is a sequel to her book, Welcome to Temptation, and continues the story of the Dempseys with Davey Dempsey coming heart to head with a similarly bent family, the Goodnights. He meets his match in Tilda, along with the art world, which, bar none, is filled with more con artists and tricksters than even the Dempsey clan could imagine. This is a very entertaining book, especially if you are at all familiar with the art world. Read Temptation first, but do not miss this continuation.
