I would say that Fake Boobs was good – not great. I think part of my problem with it is that I have a huge issue with weak female characters that get really whiny about stuff that can be fixed or isn’t a big deal. Tori, the main character, spends the first half of the book whining about being ugly so she essentially spends her first semester at college hiding out and not socializing. Tori gets made fun of ONCE by a guy and then decides to change her whole appearance (fake books, fake hair, heavy makeup, etc) and it turns out the good guy who really is in love with her doesn’t like the new appearance – SHOCKER (or not).. It’s really not a bad book but it was super predictable and even though the timeline jumped ahead quite a bit it still felt slow in parts.

2.5 out of 5 stars – if you have Kindle Unlimited and can read for free I would recommend it.


Tori Albert is eighteen, her confidence level is zero. Her life experience…also zero. She’s a girl lost in the shuffle, hiding in the shadows, craving attention. If only someone, anyone, would notice her, maybe life would improve. 

Grant Donovan can’t stop noticing Tori, but she is young, inexperienced and naïve. She is also his best friend’s younger sister. Grant knows the best thing he can do is just walk away. So why the hell isn’t he walking away?

When a late night knock lands across her bedroom door, Tori knows what stands behind it could end in disaster…but how many time does opportunity come knocking?

Just when she thinks her luck is finally changing, the assurance Tori believes she has finally found is taken away. With new assets and a new goal in sight, Tori will soon learn her new found confidence isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Unfortunately, some things you just have to learn the hard way.
