Playing Pretend Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

 As the Governor’s daughter, Charlotte McClain is an expert in playing pretend. High society, the men her mother shoves in her direction and a Pre-Law major are all a part of her perfect pretense. But when she pretends to be a nobody during Spring Break, she meets someone who rocks her world.

Mason Rowell knows heartbreak and Spring Break don’t mesh well, so he allows the mysterious Charlotte to seduce him. What should have been a fling, results in something deeper. After Spring Break has long since passed, he moves to Washington to pursue his graduate degree, but what he never expected to find living among the rich and pompous, was the girl who gave him the strength to change and the desire to start anew.

When the guy Charlotte can’t forget goes from a sensual memory to temptation in the flesh, her facade is put to the test. If she surrenders to his charms, she risks ruining her mother’s perfect career and master plan. Playing pretend is what Charlotte does best, but how long can she pretend she doesn't love the man who made her proud of her true self?

Right off the bat, I'm going to say I adore the way Juliana started the book. It starts not with Charlotte and Mason meeting, but with them preparing to say goodbye. It was kinda perfect.

Charlotte has been pretending her whole life to be the woman her mother wants her to be. Nobody except her three best friends can see through the facade. Mason's family is struggling to make ends meet. When he gets accepted to a college in DC, he moves from California to Washington DC.

I love how amazon encourages Charlotte. He always seems to support her.  The end when they make up is also super sweet! The way everything turns around with her mom made me like the book, too. The only thing it wanted is I want to see more of Charlotte's friends. They're awesome!!

If you want a light, quick romance, Playing Pretend is definately for you. Check it out
