Hello and welcome to my blog tour stop for
THE SWEETHEART SHAM by Danielle Ellison!
Today I have a guest post from the author on her favourite fake relationships plus you can win a prize pack! So make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post. But first, let's learn more about the book!
THE SWEETHEART SHAM
Author: Danielle Ellison
Series: Southern Charmed #1
Publisher: Entangled: Crush
Publication Date: December 4, 2017
In a small town like Culler, South Carolina, you guard your secrets like you guard your cobbler recipe: with your life. Georgia Ann Monroe knows a thing or two about secrets: she’s been guarding the truth that her best friend Will is gay for years now. But what happens when a little white lie to protect him gets her into a fake relationship…and then the boy of her dreams shows up?
Enter Beau Montgomery: Georgie’s first love, hotter than ever, and much too much of a southern gentleman to ever pursue someone else’s girl. There’s no way to come clean to Beau while still protecting Will. But bless their hearts, they live in Culler—where secrets always have a way of revealing themselves.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a hilarious “fakeship,” a scorching-hot impossible relationship, and a heartwarming best-friendship that will make you want to call your best friend right here, right now.
My Favorite “Fakeship” Stories
Best friends Georgie and Will are in a “fakeship” in my new book The Sweetheart Sham. These are some of my favorite stories with fake relationships…
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
I adore this whole series, especially the final one, but this opener is solid: drama, sisterhood, happy moments and romance. Lara Jean writes love letters to her crushes but instead of sending them, she locks them away safely where no one can see them. Until they do. And all you really need to know about this book is two words: Peter Kavinsky.
Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
Imagine being besties with Taylor Swift (pre-“Red”) and going on tour with her only to fall for the boy on her tour who she has to pretend to be with…and then you have to pretend that you don’t have any of those feelings for him, all while paparazzi chases y’all around for a summer. This book is a great read with heavy ties to friendship, and in true Emery Lord fashion, excellent romance.
The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel HarrisI have a special place in my heart for this book, and not because I helped come up with the title. I love Brandon and Aly in this story and the solidarity of their friendship…which obviously means when they fall for each other, it’s right. It’s funny, sweet, and all around full of romance.
Faking It by Cora Carmack
If you haven’t read Faking It but you love fakeship romances, then you’re missing out. This one has it all, and it really blew the NA map up when it hit the market.
The Proposal (movie)
Funny, romantic, sizzling chemistry, awkward strippers, Betty White one-liners and a mostly naked Ryan Reynolds – this movie has it all.
10 Things I Hate About You (movie)
This, to me, is the ULTIMATE fakeship story. It has not one, but two fake romances, and it doesn’t always go smoothly but it does show you that family, friendship, and singing in the bleachers can go a long way to win hearts. It’s also got one of the saddest monologues in the history of teen movies, which I still cry at every single time. (RIP Heath Ledger)
