Crazy, Stupid, Fauxmance by Shellee Roberts, Book Review

Book Summary (Per NetGalley)
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a kickass heroine, a boy so hot he’ll make you shiver, and a falling-in-love story fit for the big screen. You’ll want to settle in and have the popcorn ready.
It’s all fun and games until you fall in love…
After Mariely Hinojosa and Cabot Wheeler both break up with their significant others at the same party, Mariely sees a way to get even with both of their exes. Everyone knows that the best way to get over a breakup is a hookup—a fake hookup, that is. Three weeks, all fun, no strings, and definitely no heartbreak at the end.
But somewhere between the sweet hand-holding and melt-your-mind kisses, their fake relationship starts to feel less like an act and more like the real thing…but Mariely’s a free-spirited girl from the other side of the tracks, and Cabot’s the hot trust-fund guy from the Hills.
They’d never work for real…

My Thoughts
I enjoyed this fun YA story.  From the blurb and concept of the book I felt that we all know the ending and in general terms I did, but how the author got the two main characters to the ending was quite entertaining and relate-able.   The writing style flows easily and creates opportunities for us to understand the different characters.   I think one of my favorite parts of this story was how not one of the characters was exactly what their stereotype said they should be.  I also liked how through their dialogue they covered quite a few issues that teenagers and young adults/adults deal with in their own lives and relationships.  This was a fun and enjoyable read with a well developed and realistic story line.  I look forward to reading more from SR as they become available..and I really hope to learn more about Mariely's best friend and her new sort of step-brother!!
