When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.
The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.
I didn't know much about this book before I started reading it. Last year I had read The Distance Between Us by Kasie West, and I really didn't like it, but for some reason the other night I decided to read this one, and I am so glad that I did.
I really loved the character development in this book. At the start Gia was such an annoying and self centred character, but by the end she was way more tolerable and I really liked seeing her grow throughout the novel. Fill in Bradley, the male character was such a great character. he was so down to earth and just a really normal realistic guy. The two of them were great together, and I loved the banter they had.
I liked how the book all wrapped up and how it wasn't necessarily what would normally be considered a happy ending. The struggle with her friendships was frustrating to me, her friends were so annoying and I just wanted her to come out with it all bit she didn't.
Overall, I really liked this story. It was a really easy to read and the characters were easy to relate to. I liked the plot and thought it was unique even though it seemed cliche. It's a very feel good type of book, and it's definitely one of my new favourite contemporaries.
