Playing Pretend by Tamsyn Bester was one fan-freaking-tastic read. I have to say that this woman knows how to keep her readers on their toes. I know I am not the only one of her readers who gets so excited when she has a new release. I have been a fan of her writing ever since I read her first book and I must say every single time I realize just how well her writing has perfected, not to say that her other books weren’t good. But I can definitely see the maturity in her writing and my heart swells with pride when I see how perfect the outcome of her story. I enjoyed to hell out of Caleb and Kandence. He was such a a**wad and I loved it, also his intensity is on a different level, you can feel the tension coming off of him and all you’re doing is reading the book. I love Kadence, she gave Caleb a run for his money and it was wonderful to watch. Then we have some very well written hot as hell sex scene, they were hotter than fifty fire side. And then we have the ultimate twist in the story, I mean I knew that something major happened back then but I never thought that the reveal was such as juicy topic. I couldn’t put down this book; I started to read around eight the night before and couldn’t put it down. Tamsyn will grab your attention and you no other choice but to not out it down, you will have a book hangover.
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'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 :)
