I just finished reading Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance by Emily Franklin & Brendan Halpin.
Fans of romance don't need to look any further than the fauxmance brewing between teen idols Charlie Tracker and Fielding Withers-known on their hit TV show as Jenna and Jonah, next-door neighbors flush with the excitement of first love. But it's their off-screen relationship that has helped cement their fame, as passionate fans follow their every PDA. They grace the covers of magazines week after week. Their fan club has chapters all over the country. The only problem is their off-screen romance is one big publicity stunt, and Charlie and Fielding can't stand to be in the same room. Still, it's a great gig, so even when the cameras stop rolling, the show must go on, and on, and on. . . . Until the pesky paparazzi blow their cover, and Charlie and Fielding must disappear to weather the media storm. It's not until they're far off the grid of the Hollywood circuit that they realize that there's more to each of them than shiny hair and a winning smile.
This was a cute teeny-bopper type book. For some reason I could totally see this being turned into a movie. And for some reason, although I've only ever seen one episode of the show, it kept making me think of Hannah Montana. I think maybe I enjoyed it because when I was a teen, I wanted to be an actor.
This was definitely a light book--nothing heavy about it. But I thought it was fun. Predictable, yes, but I still enjoyed it.
I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
