Sloane De Carlo is going to have to move to Antarctica.
As if it wasn’t bad enough that she accidentally made her private blog very public, and all her innermost secrets and embarrassing moments are trending, now the entirety of the Internet is dying to know who her all-consuming, never-get-over-him crush “Guy” really is. She’s even got a literary agent dangling a book deal in front of her nose—but there’s a catch. She’ll have to get closure with “Guy” and give her story that pitch-perfect ending.
Too bad the real “Guy” is engaged to someone else. #Blessed
The only person in her teeny hometown of Arbor Bay who knows the truth is local bartender Brady Knox. And he’s not telling...for a price. He’ll pretend to be Sloane’s “Guy” if she’ll use her newfound Internet fame to bring more business to his struggling local bar. Brady’s always been a lone wolf, but there’s something about the pint-sized, supremely awkward, yet beautiful Sloane that charms him.
But keeping secrets in a small town like Arbor Bay isn’t easy. And Brady was never meant to be the guy for a pitch-perfect ending...

I received a complimentary ARC from Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Fake It Till You Make It by Anne Harper, book one in her Accidentally Viral series, was a funny, delightful, snarky with a side of smirk, and moving story that put two people in an awkward situation together, agreeing to a fake relationship.
When Sloane’s private blog of all her innermost secrets, thoughts, and embarrassing moments “accidentally” became public her quiet life suddenly exploded; making her the tending star of the internet. She even has a literary agent offering her a book deal, but there’s a catch; she needed to get closure with her crush “Guy” to give her story an ending.
Returning home to her small town of Arbor Bay to figure things out and hide, Sloane discovers the real “Guy” is engaged to someone else. The only person who knows the identity of “Guy” is local bartender Brady. He won’t tell, but for a price. He will pretend to be Sloane’s “Guy” if she will use her newfound internet fame to bring more business to his struggling bar. But keeping secrets in a small town goes against the code of small town living.
From the start Sloane and Brady challenge, intrigue, and surprise each other. The chemistry between them could light the town and then there’s the physical attraction they share. Proving they are a couple gets funnier as they are forced by the town’s Mean Girl into activities as Mean Girl, who doesn’t know but happens to be the sister of the real “Guy”, tries to expose them, and announce it to the world; allowing her to be back into the spotlight. Despite all this, Sloane and Brady find ways to make this fake relationship look real and natural. Hmm, maybe it really is.
Ms. Harper wrote a wonderful, sexy and humorous story that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with off the chart chemistry, hysterical banter, awkward situations, and endearing characters giving Sloane and Brady a chance for a real relationship. I highly recommend Fake It Till You Make It to other readers and look forward to the next book in the series.
