Publisher's Summary

"Mom, get a life!"
Her teenage daughter's words were daunting. True, struggling single mom Julia Jones hadn't had a date in over a decade, but she could still catch a man - if she needed to! So Julia, who claimed not to want a husband, found herself entangled in a fake romance.
Ryan Shane was tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome. And he just so happened to need a no-strings date himself. Their plan was perfectly thought out. Until a conveniently staged good-night kiss turned into very inconvenient passion....
This book contains bonus material that includes several delicious recipes!

Critic Reviews

"The author's style was pure delight, fun and funky. Modern and very entertaining. I never would have thought that a fake romance could be so funny and emotional at the same time. HJ Top Pick!" (

We worth the time & money

Would you listen to Her Fake Romance again? Why?

Yes. It was a touching story much in tune with real life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ryan. Gives a you the idea as to what a real man should be like.

Have you listened to any of Christa G. Lewis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Romance with potential for all of us

The narration provided by Christa G. Lewis is near perfect, with a touch of “annoying teen squeak” when portraying Kelli, and a clear and subtle distinction in cadence and tone for all of the other characters. A character driven story, Donna Fasano has again managed to present a story that maintains a romance in a convincing way, while allowing for the chaos and discord that family, and particularly children, can bring to the table. The never ending sexual tension that starts early in the first few moments and provides a frisson of tension, and heightens the reader / listener’s experience and involvement in the outcome of the story.

Mother –daughter interactions and kerfuffles are well detailed and written, as anyone with a teenager can attest. Fasano’s stories all portray realistic situations, conversations and issues that could be faced by any one of her readers. Far from the “idealized” romance stories that are things dreams are made of, her books provide romance with potential for all of us, not just a dream unreachable.

I received an AudioBook version from the author for purpose of honest review for the Heard Word at I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
