#ARCReview Faked by Karla Sorensen

Title: Faked

Series: Standalone

Author: Karla Sorensen

Genres: Sports Romance

Release Date: 16 June 2020


Every action has a consequence, and Claire Ward knows it. And yet, even knowing that her decision to swap places with her identical twin sister, Lia, for a night could be disastrous, she still does it.


Because it will give her an evening with the man she’s been crushing on for years, Lia’s best friend, Finn.

Miss Straight A Student has thought through all the angles, and knows the risk is worth it. And everything would have been fine, if Finn had been the one to show up at her door.

But it wasn’t.

Bauer Davis— Finn’s half brother and his exact opposite in just about every definable category is the one waiting for her instead. A professional snowboarder, Bauer is covered in ink, full of attitude, and has a chip on his shoulder the size of Mt. Olympus. The kind of bad boy that Claire has never been attracted to before.

Now the good girl is with the wrong brother for a night, and when the consequence is that they have to pretend to be together for an event, it’s nothing she could have predicted. But maybe, just maybe, what makes Bauer so bad, is exactly what Claire needs. 

Add it on Goodreads!

“Faked” is only my second book from Karla Sorensen and I’m finding out that I really like how she writes her characters! Sports romance books are some of my favorites, so it was a no-brainer that I would pick this one up!!

Claire always felt like she was invisible. Lia, her twin sister, is the most outgoing of the two. She’s also the one having a friendship with the boy she always had a crush on, Finn. When her twin asks her to change places for a charity gala, she agrees since this is her chance to spend time with Finn. However, Finn isn’t eh one picking her up but his older half-brother Bauer.

Bauer grew up being the black sheep of the family. Her stepmother only tolerated him and hasn’t missed an opportunity warning Finn against him. He’s a bad boy snowboarder, living life not caring what everyone thinks of him. After losing his sponsor, attending a charity gala instead of his brother is the tight opportunity for him. What he didn’t anticipate was his date for the night, Claire!

Claire and Bauer have some serious chemistry! I could feel the sparks flying through the pages. They are perfectly made for each other, but their relationship won’t be easy. Insecurities, demons, the past and the present will get in their way. I really enjoyed their story and I’m eagerly waiting for Lia’s book; that teaser at the end left me wanting more!!!




Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.
