Playing Pretend by Juliana Haygert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The story starts off with a Spring Break hook-up between Charlotte and Mason who have a rule that they’re not to know anything personal of each other. These two don’t let not knowing each other’s last names stop them from having serious chemistry.
Charlotte was the Governor’s daughter, and as such was always keeping up the appearances, which meant her mother kept her on a short lease. Her mother even decided on who her friends could be, what she wears even though Charlotte was at college. Charlotte had kept friends with her 3 besties Maryann, Becca and Liana from Middle School. They met up for skating every week, and that was the only time Charlotte could be herself, and wear what she wanted. So when she had the oppunity to go on the spring break in California with her friends she jumped at the chance.
So when she met Mason in a bar, Charlotte decided go for it. A hook up for a week, no names and numbers. The one thing they didn’t count on was red hot chemistry burning up my kindle. This was the first time Charlotte had been able to be herself, and she liked who she was.
I loved Mason and Charlotte, they were so good together. This is the story of both Mason and Charlotte taking charge of their own lives. Charlotte had an uphill battle, as her mother had even decided who she was to marry. So a great story, very easy to read and I read it straight through. The only thing that didn’t ring true was Charlotte’s mother’s change of heart, but I will certainly read this author’s other books and it didn’t stop me enjoying this one. So go and buy it yourself to meet Charlotte and Mason and friends you want regret it.
