The Fake; Smart Jocks #4 (Series)
by Rebecca Jenshak (Author)
This review is from: November 11, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Okay, first of all…for four books we’ve gotten to know Wes, Joel, Zeke, and Nathan. This book was bittersweet with all four now graduated and headed off into their future endeavors. Rebecca really did a fantastic job with all four novels and the ending of this Smart Jock era. (I’m so sad, but happy all at the same time.)
Now…Chloe was the perfect match for Nathan. At the moments when he felt unworthy she had the amazing ability to make him feel like a prince, yet as he always compared himself to a pauper, she was the prince who rescued him from his worst self.
Even before Nathan moved into the White House to live with the men who would be not only his best friends, but would change his life forever, he never felt like he was worth much. His father died before he came to school, his mother lost her job, and his younger brother was left home to basically fed for himself. Nathan didn’t make the best choices to help his family scrape by, but he made them nonetheless. Living his life always looking in, that was how he met Chloe.
Chloe is a transfer in to Valley U her senior year. Trying to leave a scandal behind from her prior university she’s wanting to start over, but her teammates make it difficult when they all seem to hate her. After a one night stand and Nathan wakes up in her dorm, she introduces him as her boyfriend and the snowball only gets bigger as the lie grows, but when her teammates seem to like her more because of his association she’s hesitant to correct it.
Nathan would really like to date Chloe for real, but she insists on keeping their “relationship” fake. Honestly he’ll take just about any reason to be around her, she makes him want to be a better man, but the more time they spend together the more he wants the real deal. He’s afraid she’ll leave their arrangement and he not only likes himself since knowing her, he just likes her.
I’m going to miss these guys. The comradery, sportsmanship, learning, love, friendship, basically everything that was wrapped up in the Smart Jocks novels. The good news is Rebecca did promise a new generation of jocks will be coming and I’m soooooo looking forward to more great stories!!
