Fake It Till You Break It by Jen P. Nguyen is a YA Contemporary Romance story of two high schoolers whose moms have been trying to make them a couple all their lives.
“Mia and Jake have known each other their whole lives. They’ve endured summer vacations, Sunday brunches, even dentist visits together. Their mothers, who are best friends, are convinced that Mia and Jake would be the perfect couple, even though they can’t stand to be in the same room together.
After Mia’s mom turns away yet another cute boy, Mia and Jake decide they’ve have had enough. Together, they hatch a plan to get their moms off their backs. Permanently. All they have to do is pretend to date and then stage the worst breakup of all time—and then they’ll be free.
The only problem is, maybe Jake and Mia don’t hate each other as much as they once thought…“
This was a pretty cute story.
We follow the two main characters who have spent their entire lives trying to dodge their mothers’ ploy to get them together.
Ever since they were kids, they have constantly been pushed together. Almost to the point where they’ve had enough and come up with a plan to stop them.
If you love contemporary romances with hints of comedy, lightheartedness, and schemes, this is the book for you!
I really enjoyed seeing their plan kind of spiral out of control. There were parts that I could see coming, but the writing made it still enjoyable to read.
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. The two moms in this story were on the brink of getting on my nerves. Constantly playing out every possible idea to get them together, but little did they know, maybe their plan worked?
It’s a story about discovery and love. If you are looking for a quick summer read to take to on a vacay to the beach, this is it!

“Jenn Nguyen fell in love with books in third grade and spent the rest of her school years reading through lunchtime and giving up recess to organize the school library. She has a degree in business administration from the University of New Orleans and still lives in the city with her husband. Jenn spends her days reading, dreaming up YA romances, and binge watching Korean dramas all in the name of ‘research’.”
