    Description

    I’ve made a lot of dumb mistakes but none dumber than losing her. 

    Senior year. I should be partying and living it up with my friends before graduation, but one more mistake and I’m off the team. 

    Enter Chloe. She comes into my life at a low point, but she becomes the bright spot I reach for every day. She’s the kind of girl who makes a guy want to be a better man. And for a while, I even start to believe I’ve changed enough to deserve her.

    I’ve got my eye on the future, and I’m letting my past stay where it belongs.

    But the thing about the past...it always comes back to bite you when you least expect it.

    Nathan -- Saved The Best For Last!

    I've now read/listened to the entire Smart Jocks series and I think that Rebecca Jenshak saved the best for last!

    Nathan is a character much more intense than his buddies, and he comes with a whole lot of baggage. His dad died when he was in high school, and he's been struggling ever since to be a father figure to his little brother, and send money back home whenever possible. It lead him to making some stupid choices out of desperation for a few bucks, and his bad decisions end up coming back to bite him (and by extension, Chloe) in the ass. I knew from The Tipoff that he struggles with epic nightmares, and when the reason behind them is finally shared, my heart broke for Nathan.

    Chloe, meanwhile, has switched schools before her senior year after a it was discovered that her parents bought her way into her previous college. (Great ripped-from-the-headline use!) Even though she is a great volleyball player, her new teammates look down on her, figuring that she greased some palms to get onto the Valley team. The night that Chloe and Nathan meet at an athletic department mixer, they are both down in the dumps, but find a bit of light and cheer in each other.

    The one night stand leads to a fake relationship for the benefit of Chloe's roommates, but Nathan wants the girl from the get-go. As lines get blurred and feelings develop, Nathan truly turns his life around in order to be the man that Chloe deserves.

    I listened to the audio version of this book, and Joe Clarke has a baritone voice as smooth as butter. Ava Erickson perfectly embodies the image I created in my mind of Nathan's Surfer Princess, and she was a delight to listen to in bringing Chloe to life.

    I received a complimentary copy and voluntarily left a review.

    Great real story

    Wow...this audiobook was more than I expected. Rebecca Jenshak wrote a book that was real and right with the times.

    Chloe had it all until she didn't. She's had to leave her whole world behind because of a scandal her parents created. Chloe is just trying her best to fit in any way she can. Then she meets Nate. Nate is nice but most of all, he doesn't know her past.

    I love the man Nate is. He's trying to keep his family afloat while maintaining his collegiate career. I love how hard he fights to love Chloe, even when she feels she's not worth it. I love how great these two are together.

    I love this story in general. The narrators did an amazing job. I do feel the male narrator sounded a little older than 21, but it was good. All in all, a great story to listen too.

    A delightful and pleasant listening experience!

    Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson will knock your socks off with the brilliant and perfect performance of this audiobook. Both of them are pretty amazing at voicing each character and bringing them to life.

    The Fake is the 4th and final book in the Smart Jock series, and can be listened/read as standalone as the previous installments.

    Nathan and Chloe's story is one that will still your heart. Their chemistry and connection is palpable, and their journey believable and captivating through the voices of Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson. This two narrators had been an automatic buy since I first found them. 

    All in all, this is a well written sports romance, with a heartwarming, sexy, funny, and sweet storyline beautifully brought to life by two great narrators that will make of this, a delightful and pleasant listening experience.

    What They Had Was Real!

    I really enjoyed this book a lot. I’m giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    First, I loved being able to actually get to know Nathan! We met him in the other books, but honestly, he was off in his own world. We didn’t get to see him as much as the other guys. And we finally got to see his backstory that was talked about vaguely before. He was a very believable character to me, and while he didn’t always make the right choice, he was trying to do what he thought was best at the time. I liked him a lot, and my heart went out to him.

    As for Chloe, I wouldn’t say she was my favorite female character from this author, but she wasn’t bad. I felt like I didn’t really get to know her as deeply as I wanted to. Because of what she dealt with before coming to Valley U, she had some reservations about most things besides volleyball. There was one part in the book where I knew something was going to happen, and I was just waiting for the other shoe to drop. It could have gone a lot worse, and my heart went out to her, but at least she finally found a group of people at her new school that had her back.

    All that being said, I liked how these two weren’t a picture perfect couple, and that what they had was real. Except when it wasn’t haha. I also enjoyed that they hung out with each other’s friends/roommates, because I got to see a lot of the characters I’ve loved. Overall, I thought this was a great ending to this series, and I can’t wait to read more from this author.

    Fake relationship at it's finest!

    The Fake will have you cheering for the home team! This story is about overcoming obstacles, especially those that are out of your control. If you don't have a current book boyfriend, be prepared for Nate to steal your heart away. This was my favorite book so far in the Smart Jocks series and I highly recommend the audio version as well!

    A great ending to a great series

    This is the 4th book and final book in the Smart Jock series and it is finally Nathan’s story. Loved Nathan and Chloe. Their story and the chemistry and attraction was so good. It was a really good ending to the series. Each couple will hold a special place in my heart and I can’t wait to reread/relisten to each one again.

    Sorry to see this series come to a close :(

    I'm sad to see this series come to a close, but The Fake does provide us with a satisfying ending. Chloe situation is practically ripped from the headlines, and I love how Rebecca Jenshak gave an alternate perspective to what is portrayed in reality in this regard. I've wanted Nate's story since he was introduced, but I especially wanted to see him get a HEA after he suffered a bit of heartbreak and rejection in The Tip-Off. His backstory and the responsibility he took on made him a very sympathetic hero and I think one of my favorite aspects of the book was that when ish hit the fan, it didn't take an inordinate amount of time for the dust to settle - because I don't think I would've enjoyed reading about Nate being in any kind of emotional turmoil for any longer than necessary. I also really loved the fake relationship trope utilized here. I think I can officially say that Rebecca Jenshak is a must read author for me and I can't wait to read whatever she comes out with next! 4 out of 5 wine glasses.

    Second Chances and happily ever after's

    Alright, confession time. I have never listened to an audiobook of a book I haven’t already read. I hadn’t read The Fake before so I was a little nervous about going into an audiobook blind. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a little hard for me to follow at first but once we got into the story, I was all in.

    Nathan, oh sweet Nathan. I just adored him, there was so much more to him than meets the eye. Jason Clarke crushed it, he was such a great Nathan and at times even had me swooning. There’s just something about hearing a hunky guy profess his love to his girl that gives me goosebumps. Nathan was going through a lot when he meets Chloe, but meeting her helped clear the fog and see what he really wanted. Jason was fantastic and perfectly believable.

    Ava Erickson killed it as Chloe, she was fantastic. Chloe had a lot to prove when she showed up at Valley and a boyfriend was very low on her radar. Well, until she meets Nathan and realizes he may be able to help her gain approval of her teammates. Their little arrangement started as mutually beneficial, a transaction but the more time they spent together the harder their chemistry was to deny. Ava did a great job as Chloe and I really enjoyed her.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this story and Jason and Ava’s telling of it, it was captivating. I can’t wait to listen to more of Rebecca Jenshak’s stories through Audible. I don’t know if any of her other guys will be able to top Nathan though, he’s a romantic at heart which just makes me melt.

This is a sweet, sexy and heartwarming romance. Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed it and I highly recommend it.
