Stacy is a loud mouthed brash woman but deep down hides a loyal and sensitive person. And Chad?? He's tormented by his past and meeting Stacy really tests his well controlled, enclosed life.
These two make for an interesting couple and with the stubbornness they both possess its a crazy journey for them.
Best read after Pressing Adalyn as they both run on same timeline.
Once I started this book I was in a tizz because I really really wanted to read it as fast as I could as I was hooked but at the same time I wanted to savour it so it didn't end too quickly!
Stacy literally had me crying with laughter and sadness (mainly laughter though)
I already loved her in pressing Adalyn but her relationships with both Joe (platonic) and Chad (not so platonic) had me falling in love with her harder lol.
Again her smart mouth has me jealous that she has the balls to do and say what she wants.
I serioulsy fell hard for this series and will recommend it to everyone that will listen, so go for it peeps it's amazing. X

Hype's characters have a very energetic voice that pulls you in from the first page. She has created an interesting circle of friends, produced very sassy and witty dialogue, deals with some tough topics with extremely well balanced levity, and has created wonderful characters I can't wait to read more of. This is book two in the Pretending series. Although the book can be read as a stand alone, I recommend reading Pressing Adalyn first so you are well prepared for Stacy and her crazy personality:)
I received this ARC from the publisher, which in no way impacts the content of my review.
I have absolutely without a doubt found one of my newest and most favorite authors with author Jenn Hype!! She writes with such a style and flair that sucks the reader in and doesn't want to let them out...EVER! You will replay chapters from her books in your head over and over again and each time you will laugh like crazy at some of the sarcasm, antics and fun she creates in her world. She makes the characters real, flawed, and so intense that at times you wonder how she has created this alternate world and then you remember that you love being a part of it, so you don't question it at all anymore....
This book picks up where book 1 left off, but at the same time she has crafted it so that you can read it as a stand alone book. She gives just enough back story that you know what is going on, but not too much so that it is like a book 1 re-read. I loved Stacy in book and and I loved her even more in her own book. She is the person that shy people aim to be, the outspoken, brash, tell it like it is, but loyal friend that everyone wants. I love the way the author portrayed her and I want to find my very own real life Stacy!! We briefly meet Chad in book 1 as well, but we really get to know them both in this one.
Stacy is arrested by Chad outside of a club where she is determined to pick up the straight laced cop. Chad is not at all interested or amused (or so he says). It takes a lot to get these two to figure out that they are meant to be...and the author makes it an unpredictable ride for the reader. The author's writing flows smoothlessly and seamlessly throughout the book, barely giving the reader a stopping point for food, the bathroom, work or any of those pesky chores. The reader just doesn't want to take a minute to stop!! It is that good and that much fun!
This book and the characters are sure to leave you with a book hangover that only another book by this author could possible cure! I am so looking forward to book 3, 4, 5 6....so she better get writing!! Make sure you add this author and all of her books to your TBR list!! You won't want to miss these!!
Addy’s happy go lucky roommate Stacy is up this time as she battles with a new nemesis – hottie police officer Chad. Feeling he had ‘done her wrong’ from their first meeting, she was determined to get her revenge. Dragging her new friend Joe into the mix, who just happens to be Joe’s partner in blue, Stacy begins a no-holds-barred campaign. Too bad she is hampered by her growing attraction, and like, for the man. Chad, on the other hand, can’t figure out why he is equally drawn to her. She is brash, and forward and… beautiful, sexy and amusing. Even when he is the butt of her jokes. Oh, the games were going to be fun!
I loved this follow up story. It had all the laughs, the feels and the hotness I was hoping for. Stacy is simply off the wall in her vendetta but she does it in such a way that you can’t help but laugh and egg her on. Chad’s stony façade is just that and seeing him thaw in the face of Stacy’s escalating antics. Not everything is fun and games though and the emotional roller coaster ends in a finale that had me laughing and cheering at the same time. I simply love these characters and their stories just fast track right into my heart. I hope there will be many more!
So many laughs but this one, this one was groovy:
“Because my vagina, she didn’t think things through.”
And made me misty…
“I don’t want you to change. I don’t want you to be serious and cautious like me. I want you to breathe your life into me.”
**Reviewed for Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty**
Chad was amazing, too. He was so standoffish and aloof that I didn’t think I would really enjoy getting to know him, but once he opened up, the story really took off.
I did get frustrated with their on again/off again status and wanted to strangle both of them at several points in the story...but it was so well written that I just couldn’t give up and it didn’t matter that I was unhappy with them, I had to keep reading!
The story was well planned and played out in a great sequence and left me feeling good about choosing to read it. Though there were a few flashbacks to Pressing Adalyn, I felt the story was still fresh and kept me entertained. I can’t wait to read Joe & Carrie’s story. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
And when that sort of woman meets Chad - the too uptight, too highly strung, no-nonsense cop fireworks implode.
Starting their somewhat strange relationship with Stacy being tossed in the back of the squad car and spending the night in the drunk tank, Stacy can't get him out of her head and the more she tries the more frustrated she becomes causing her to act even more crazy than her normal brand.
The more Chad sees Stacy the harder it is to control, well everything. He doesn't remember the last time he felt a genuine emotion - it wasn't something he was ever going to allow after his childhood.
A book filled with colourful characters and more shenanigans than you can imagine it will have you smiling and giggling the whole way through!
