Title: Fake Boobs

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 1st February 2015
Challenges: Winter COYER, 2015 New Release Challenge

At 18, Tori lacks confidence, both in her appearance and herself, but one person can see through that, her older brother's friend Grant. Grant knows that he shouldn't, but he can't help but fall for Tori, but things change and when Grant leaves, Tori takes a turn for the worse, becoming more obsessed with her looks and changing her appearance. Her new confidence works for a while, but after a while things always tend to fade...

I've now read a few books by Ryan Ringbloom, and I must say that once again she's proved that her books tell the real story. This isn't a book about a perfect romance, between perfect characters, instead its about the pressures that young people feel about their bodies and their attractiveness. Its a big deal, and not often something that is dealt with in books.

Tori has something that almost every woman will be able to relate to; body issues. And then she has the men in her life making it worse (whether that is valid blame or not it happens), and Tori then takes it to the extremes with her looks and the changes she makes. It is kind of scary in a way simply because of how many women would make some of those, even simple ones like dying their hair.

The relationship between Grant and Tori had several different stages, there was sweet, then there was the pining, then there was the matured version. The sweet version was good, it gave Tori some confidence, but it didn't feel quite as real as the later more mature version. It also led to the pining, which was an important path for both characters.

First of all I hate the title of this book. Typing Fake Boobs into Amazon to find it to review it, brought up a whole load of things I didn’t even know existed!

Tori thinks she’s ugly. Probably because she’s been hanging around with her brother and his mates listening to their tales of prowess with the bigger busted ladies. She’s tall and slim and pretty flat chested and thinks that guys won’t like her because of it. Her friend at college even gives her a makeover and some chicken fillets to put in her bra! Now ladies, that is like getting a really really nice present and then on unwrapping it, finding something a bit rubbish! Don’t do it! Make the most of what you’ve got without resorting to adding half your dinner in your bra!

Grant is the love interest in this book and he seems like a nice bloke. He knows he shouldn’t be sniffing round his mate’s little sister because we all know that is a no no.

So the premise of the story is good. The execution is less than good in my opinion. The author has chosen to do this book in two parts. The first part in Tori’s POV and the second part in Grant’s POV. This only really works if you are bringing in unknown parts of the story. If the protagonist was absent and then in their POV you find out what’s happened etc. For me, the biggest mistake a dual POV can be is when it’s simply a retelling of the story. Yes we get a different opinion on things, but I’m not interested in reading the same thing twice.

It’s a shame that this book was so rinse and repeat because it could have been very, very good. Sadly for me, it missed the mark.

I can honestly say I loved this book. I think 90% of women who read this won't have the same issues as Tori but will have faced issues similar. Confidence is such an easy thing to lose and once you do its not easy to get back.
This is told in two separate parts Tori's and Grants'. In Tori's you love her and your heartbreaks for her but you can also totally relate.You see her change both mentally and physically as the story progresses. You can't but help wanting a happy ending for her. So you will have to read the story to see of she gets one :)
In Grant's you love him for being amazing but then you slap him for being stupid I just want to hug him and hit him all at once.
As per usual Ryan totally got it right and wrote a story not only about body conference and insecurities but she did it in a way that made you laugh cry and fall in love with the characters. Excellent writing and I would highly recommend it.

You know, I think that this is a sad story. A naive girl, ignored by her parents, looks for a replacement for the love she didn’t get at home. Issues with self confidence, and friends with mean girls. Tori has issues to the point of distraction. And yet, I really found myself connecting with her as a character.

An interesting story told from two points of view. Sometimes that can be distracting or annoying, but in this case, it really worked. Mainly, I think, because Grant’s telling merely filled in the gaps, rather than being an entire re-hashing of the story.

I thought that this was a really well observed and believable narrative. And one that I read over the course of 2 evenings. It just drew me in. And I found it to be surprisingly enjoyable.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
