Fauxmance by L.H. Cosway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Age Group: Adult
Release Date: August 13, 2018
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.

MY GOD! This woman can write!
This book was raw, sexy, interesting, captivating, addictive, and one of my favourite read’s this year.
I knew I would like this story just from reading the synopsis, but once I started… it wasn’t too long before I was no longer just reading the story, but I felt I was apart of it.
L.H. Cosway wrote this book SO DAMN WELL that I felt as though I was at the Polka Dot Cafė watching Suze and Elodie thru Julian’s eyes. I was in Ellen’s apartment with her while she was contemplating her next move or going through the slew of emotions she was feeling about Julian or stepping out of her comfort zone.
Julian and Ellen’s characters were interesting, colourful, unique and wonderful to get to know.
Their chemistry was off the charts.
I was rooting for them from the very beginning right until the last word was written.
Julian complimented Ellen completely, and Ellen allowed Julian to see and experience the world through her innocent eyes.
I absolutely adored this book.
READ IT, I highly recommend it!
