I just finished reading Faking it by Elisa Lorello and I must say, it was not what I expected.
Initially, I started this book to pass time on a sick day, while I wait to browse the net for anything new to download.
However, I find myself waking up to start a story at 6:30 in the morning, to downloading the part 2 at 3:00 in the afternoon.
Yup! Didn't even last 24 hours. And this was with interruptions and breakfast of course, cause no good book is every completely read without a snack.
In this book, You meet Andi and Devin (Not their government names), and they couldn't be two more different poles if they tried.
This book didn't start off as your casual cheesy romance novel, which I appreciate, nor did it continue or end that way.
A professor and an escort I don't find surprising, because regardless of our job title, we are people. But it's the course these people take that was shocking to me and the literary references and such that you learn along the way.
As expected from a Literature professor, this book focused more on the Language than the world of sex (another thing to be grateful for)
These people live their lives for themselves and no one else, and I think that has a lot to do with their age and the theme of this book.
They are not love struck puppies, raving with lust high schoolers or fresh out of college and bound to make mistakes kind of people.
These are grown ups with issues and wisdom that takes them to a place we as readers don't normally go, but was refreshing to venture.
I not only learned, but understood and appreciated the format of this book, it shows that not all the time two people must end up together and even when they don't, you or at least I still felt contented in knowing that the got to experience each other.
So while I venture on to book 2 to close off these two extraordinary people stories, I must say that I wouldn't have been disappointed if this book ended after book 1 and I really hope book 2 leave me feeling the same.
So thnx (Andi would hate this) Elisa Lorello and wish me luck guys as I dive into Ordinary World and get my fill of Andrea and David (their government name) final story!
