Faking It

I have a bunch of reviews for you this week, so if you are looking for some new reading, stay tuned! 

Faking It
Britt Munro faces seven days of sexual servitude at a swanky Hamptons beach house, being shared by the hottest two men she's ever met. It's either that or prison after she tries to sell millionaire art collector Garrett Harvey a fake nineteenth-century masterpiece she painted herself. Garrett's art-expert buddy Jack turns her weeklong punishment into a m nage trois-his reward for spotting the forgery. Both men are inventive, energetic lovers, but only one touches her heart. Only one makes her yearn for something...real, even after she discovers she's not the only one keeping secrets. When the week is up, she'll never see him again. Months later, Britt's past returns with a vengeance, testing both her courage and the depth of her ex-lover's feelings. 

So let me start by saying I have read other books by Pam McKenna, and I enjoyed those. I know from experience that she can write a short erotica novel and it's good. This one? Is kind of meh for me. The book is rather fast paced considering it's only 79 pages, so admittedly there isn't much of a story. It's kind of like a porn video script. 

We have Britt, who is basically a painter who hocks fake paintings and sells them as legit, original pieces of art. Unfortunately for Britt, she does this with a guy who has a friend who is an expert in the original artist and calls her out immediately. In order for them to not turn her into authorities, or her boss, she agrees to essentially be their sex slave for a week. 

Cue three way sex with two attractive men and Britt. 

Meanwhile, they are all scamming each other, mind you. 

Oh yes, and then Britt kind of falls for one, but it's not destined to last until (dun, dun, dun) she has to reach out to one of the men long after she was to have moved on. 

Cheese factor? Oh it's there. It's a ridiculously, over the top, never going to happen scenario. It really is a porn movie turned into a short book. Are there steamy scenes? Absolutely. One thing this author doesn't skimp on are steamy scenes that are very descriptive. Descriptive enough that you can turn this into a movie in your head. Overall? I can really only give it 2/5 stars. It felt too cheesy for me, especially given what I've read from Pam McKenna in the past. I know she can do better so I think that's why this fell flat for me.
