Kadence Kavanagh has spent the last two years trying to rebuild her life. When a job opportunity presents itself, she can’t say no, even if it’s with the man who’s life was ruined by her father’s indiscretion. It’s been years since she last saw Caleb Callahan, and she’s not even sure he remembers her, but she’s determined to give herself a clean slate no matter who she has to work for.
In the unlikeliest of circumstances, Caleb becomes her savior – if somewhat reluctantly - and she discovers that the man she’s read about in the gossip columns is nothing more than a smoke screen. Kadence knows that keeping her distance is for the best, no matter how difficult, but when Caleb proposes the unthinkable, she finds herself caught between what’s real, and what she wishes was real.
Caleb and Kadence lose themselves in a lie, and when reality comes knocking, they realize that all they were doing was playing pretend…
I honestly always enjoy Tamsyn's Books. Playing Pretend was no different.
I really liked Kadence's character. She knew her family was a fuck up. She admitted. She owned that shit. But she also had a vulnerable side as well. Which to me just made her more human.
And Caleb. Well he did some asshole-ish things through out the book(none as bad as Dane Winters though😉). He was quite a surprise though and well he had a cute surprise too (You will totally understand what I'm talking about when you read the book).
I really liked the book for the most part. I however did get aggravated with how Caleb would want her one minute and then the next he wouldn't. He was hot and cold thoughout a lot of the book.
I thought it was a really enjoyable book. Caleb had a few moments I didn't like and I also didn't care for his hot and cold attitude towards Kadence. But when they were actually together I thought they were cute. And would make a perfect Family.
So basically if you like Tamsyn's other books. You will like this one as well.
I'm 23 years old & the ultimate Book Brat :) Coffee & Books are my drugs of choice, neither of which will be kicked to the curb any time soon! I go through a book a day & when I'm not reading I'm working on my next novel :)I'm a sucker for New Adult Contemporary Romance with a whole lot of sexy thrown in & my number one rule is I won't read a book unless it has a happy ending! I also have the unhealthiest obsession with the South,and I don't mean my home country of South Africa - I mean cowboys, pick up trucks, sexy as sin Southern accents, cowboy boots and barefoot bluejean nights! One day, I will live in Alabama & I will have my own Indie publishing house - my philosophy is if your dreams don't scare you they're not big enough :)
