Blog Tour: L.H. Cosway's "Fauxmance (Showmance #2)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog is pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for L.H. Cosway's "Fauxmance (Showmance #2)."


In this era of social media, we all pretend. 

We pretend to be prettier, happier, more confident versions of ourselves, but not Ellen Grant. She takes it to a whole other level and pretends to be someone else entirely. Adopting the persona of a woman far more interesting is the only way she can break free of the socially awkward, romantically inept girl she really is.

And it’s all going swimmingly until she catches the eye of a man at her local coffee shop. Julian Fairchild has been noticing her for a while and he’s fascinated. Little does he know, the woman he thinks he’s obsessed with is a fake.

It’s not long before the jig is up, and Julian discovers Ellen’s true identity. However, he has a proposition. If she really wants to pretend, he can introduce her to a world where she can be anyone she wants. Ellen is intrigued by the prospect, and, blind to the nature of Julian’s profession as a male escort, closes her eyes and lets him lead the way.

Can Ellen keep her feelings in check while discovering a new world of thrills and excitement? And will Julian let it show that he isn’t entertaining Ellen purely out of the goodness of his heart?

Fauxmance is a standalone contemporary romance featuring characters first seen in L.H. Cosway’s Showmance.

Review: Jo 

I've always loved LH Cosway's work and this book was no exception. Brilliant characters, a slow burn romance with a ton of chemistry and an ending that left me with a big smile on my face. This was another win for a fabulous author.

"A lifetime with just one person wouldn't feel like
a life sentence if I got to spend it with you."

What I've come to learn from this author is that she always manages to create such larger than life characters. Characters with big personalities that keep your interest with every turn of the page. Julian was one of these characters. I loved getting to know this male escort with a heart of gold. He truly was a unique kind of hero to the story. Ellen was the heroine of the tale. A girl who lacked confidence and self assurance. My heart went out to Ellen and the lengths she would go to to mask her insecurities. 

"...Julian somehow managed to break past the mask. He was a chink to my armour." 

Ellen and Julian formed an unlikely friendship early on into the book, Two people who were both so different but at the same time they were the kind of people that could help one another out. Julian was the perfect guy to help Ellen with her lack of confidence and in turn, as time went on, Ellen gave Julian the opportunity to love, something that he had always thought he wasn't capable of. In Ellen and Julian's situation, opposites attract really did happen and feelings soon developed between the pair. 

"I was breaking all my rules for this woman, but I couldn't stop now even if I tried."

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel about learning to accept and love your true self. Ellen and Julian's romance was well worth the read. 

"Fauxmance" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me.
