    Description

    When Claire, an overachieving psychologist with OCD tendencies, hires Lana, an impulsive, out-of-work actress for a fake relationship, she figures the worst she'll have to endure are the messes Lana leaves around. It's only for a few months anyway. And it's not as if she'll enjoy all those fake kisses and loving looks. Right?  

    A lesbian romance where role-playing has never been so irresistible.

    Contains mature themes.

    Great Story!

    I really enjoyed this book. While the story was a familiar theme, the fake girlfriend relationship, the telling was well done and filled with emotion and humor. Narrator Angela Dawe is superb doing different voices and accents. Her changes in vocal tone really make you believe there are different characters, each of whom she brings to life. A good story and and great narration make this book a must read!

    Seriously, I Loved this Audiobook!

    this is the 3rd Jae audiobook I've read/heard and I really liked the first two, but, Just For Show was the best so far. I loved it! I liked the idea of fun, sexy-voiced Lana moving in and making a mess in controlling, workaholic Claire's house. they have a business deal to pretend to be engaged and they've only just met. good thing Lana is an actress... seems simple, and I love it! I really wanted to listen to this in one day but couldn't. really found it hard to stop listening. narrator did an amazing job! l loved Lana's deep voice and fun attitude. great book!

    Just for show!

    This is by far one of my favorite books/audiobooks this year. The narration was so honest and the differences between the personalities were so evident. I love the storyline and how it moved so organically. Kudos to Jae for being able to create characters that are so opposite but work so well together

    Lovely Romance

    What I love about Jae’s books is that I end up happy that the main couple get together.

    Just for Show is my favourite fauxmance story and I adore Claire and Lana because they so obviously make each other a more rounded person.

    The stakes are personal and equally understandable, the pace of the romance is also quite organic for me. By the time they finally admitted their feelings I was giddy with happiness.

    This is the second book I’ve listened to by Angela Dawe and love the smoky voice she uses for Leo from Perfect Rhythm and in this book Lana.

    If I had to nitpick I think there was a mistake st 41:48 of chapter 21 of 22. Where she says Abbie instead of Claire but otherwise I loved the emotional inflections Angela infuses her voice with during the emotional scenes and had my heart beating faster during one of the emotionally intense scenes with Lana late in the book.

    All in all, you can’t go wrong with this book and like all of Jae’s books if not a direct sequel to something you can jump straight in without worrying about getting lost.

    Perfect combination of writer and narrator!

    I listened to this the first time a year ago and was craving an Angela Dawe (narrator) fix so decided to revisit it. I'm so glad I did! Though this trope has been done quite a bit, Jae does a better job with it than most. The characters are well fleshed out and engaging and in spite of being polar opposites, they have off the charts chemistry. You can't wait for them to get together. Interestingly, I liked it even more the second time around! Perhaps that's because I've listened to so many audiobooks now that I appreciate when something is especially well done. Regardless, I ate this up with a spoon. The story is thoroughly enjoyable and Angela's talent brings it to the next level. Her Lana voice was so delicious I could listen to it on a loop. And it's not just the one character that appeals. Dawe brings the whole thing to life. When she performs, it's like watching a movie in your head. Jae is a great storyteller and if you read her books you'll find little "gifts" in many of them. She often includes main characters from previous novels as secondary characters in others. Such was the case here. I'd have to put this in the top five of Jae's releases and that's saying a lot because she's got a terrific body of work. If you haven't experienced this on audiobook, do yourself a favor and remedy that. The combination of writer and narrator make this one a must-own.

    Funny and Sweet

    I loved this book and will likely read it again soon. The humor was A+ and I enjoyed the real differences between the two main characters. I kind of wished something happened between them sooner in the book but the pacing was really good overall. One thing I noticed that should be corrected, is in Chapter 21 at one point Claire is called Abby. It is definitely a slip up that needs to be corrected ASAP. Overall though, this is now one of my favorite books, no doubt.

    Perfect!!

    I have listened to many different types of lesbian romance stories and this is one of the best. There is just enough angst to keep you going but not enough to drive you crazy. I love the way the characters fall in love! The story is believable and fun. The romantic encounters are very well written.

    Great story. Great listen.

    Thank for such a good story. I seemed to get attached to the characters and I was invested in their outcome. And Angela Dawe is fantastic, as always.

    So much emotion

    I am addicted to Jae’s writing. I know it will be a cry fest when I listen. But I cannot stop listening to the same ones 2,3 and 4 times. Addiction right.

    Just for Show?

    Die Geschichten von Jae zeichnen immer perfekt ausgearbeitete Charaktere und stimmige Geschichten aus. Wobei sie es irgendwie schafft eine wohlige Grundstimmung zu schaffen. Jedenfalls geht es mir so, wenn ich ihre Bücher lese. Diese Gefühle mit einer Stimme zu transportieren um dem Hörer das gleiche Gefühl zu vermitteln wie dem Leser ist eine wahre Herausforderung, wie ich finde. Angela Dawe ist eine Meisterin in diesem Metier und schafft es auch hier wieder famos den Personen Leben einzuhauchen und unverwechselbar zu machen. Eine wahre "Ohrenfreude"!

    That was soo cute

    👉🏻 This was such a funny and cute read! I literally laughed out loud because of the dialogues. It's basically a fauxmance (fake relationship) - so, nothing new, but it's so charmingly told that I really enjoyed it.

    💡 One of the main characters is Claire, a psychologist who specialises in couples therapy. She is a perfectionist, has some OCD tendencies and is wealthy. The other one is Lana, a desperate actress looking for new castings and working as a barista on the side. Unlike Claire, she is laid back and lives from day to day.

    Naturally, their lives cross when Claire needs a fake girlfriend to seal a book deal. Who wants to buy a book about relationship tips when the author can't keep his own relationships intact?

    The two are so contrary that there are often friction points, which are told in a really amusing way. In the end, however, both characters complement each other. And I found it lovely how they embraced each other's habits (positive as negative ones) in the end. SO CUTE!

    Of course, the whole plot is predictable, but the characters are told in such an entertaining way that you fall in love with them and want to keep on reading. Further, I want to add that I liked how the author chose to wrap up the story because often "fauxmances" end in the same way.

    ♥️ I can only recommend this book to anyone who likes fake-relationship stories and needs something to cheer them up during the pandemic.

    Cute & a positive story

    Despite of the fact that it is super predictable, the journey is very cute and nicely written. The book is well read and the different characters come across. It is such a sweet companion book for a dog walk or a chilled afternoon!

    A wonderful love story

    I really loved this from a fake-romance to a real romance story. I couldn't have enough of it, heard it through in two days.
    I'm a romantic, but lately I've somehow lost the faith into finding real love. Well this book cheered me up and recharged my "hope batteries".
    I wish for the other readears to enjoy this book as much as I did.
    Ohh.. and of course best thanks to the writer 😊.

    nice story, very good narration

    Yet another great book by Jae. This book has a nice length. The story is developed in a pleasant way. The characters are very different witch makes the interaction fun to listen to. Themes like fake relationship and opposite attract are used in this story.

    Narration: I just love the narration of Angela Dawe. I think she could read the telephone book and make that exciting to listen to. I am not not secretly trying to say this book is boring as a telephone book.

    Wunderschöne Story

    Super schön Storyline, klasse geschrieben und toll gelesen!
    Ich war zunächst skeptisch, da mein Englisch nicht das aller beste ist, aber man könnte alles super verstehen.
