Charade by Nyrae Dawn
Author: Nyrae Dawn
Blurb: Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection.
Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom's dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it's what he wants too.
Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another—losing themselves in each other to forget about their pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.
Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.
Charade on Goodreads
Nyrae Dawn ... I heart you very much.
Charade is another awesome book from self-pubbed author Nyrae Dawn. I've read all of her books now (I think) and I liked all but one (her paranormal one). Her contemporary stuff is just amazing, and Charade is no exception.
The dialogue is funny, the plot is fast moving, and the characters are likable and interesting and compelling. Cheyenne and Colt both have intriguing back stories and their romance is believable and cute.
This author is on my auto-buy list and her contemporary stuff hasn't let me down yet. Another great book!
4 out of 5 stars.
