Fake Friends

Fake Friends Review


Five years ago, I ruined the best thing I had in my life and ran.

Now, I’m finally back to make things right.

I need Circus’s forgiveness, and then maybe I can finally move on.

I’ll leave Sunbury for good this time and never look back. Maybe then I can finally live life as an out gay man—without my family ever finding out.

But earning his forgiveness isn’t as simple as I hoped it would be.

He’s going to make me fight for it.

And I don’t blame him at all.


I never wanted or expected to see Rowan Harvey again.

When he shows up in Sunbury, begging for forgiveness, I’m tempted to give it to him just so he’ll disappear.

Instead, we make a deal.

I need an extra model for a swimwear shoot, and none of my friends are available or fit the brief.

I’ll forgive him, if he helps me. Then he has to leave. For good.

Because his request for anonymity during the shoot proves he’s still living in his dark closet.

I’m not going to make the same mistakes I did when I was a teenager.

I won’t let myself fall for him again.

Because after how things ended between us, he doesn’t deserve a second chance.

    Not my favourite book from this author. I really struggled to finish the story. I didn’t really warm to either MC. I just couldn't see them together as a couple. Rowan came across as weak and kind o...

    Fake Friends is a fantastic friends to lovers romance. The second book in Saxon James' Never Just Friends series, I fell into it hook, line, and sinker. These men and their story are everything I coul...

    I freaking loved this book. Once again Saxon slays me. I love the angst in this one, but the humor is what jumped off the page for me. These men felt so real!...

    This book tries to tackle two very hard subjects and fails badly at both. Plot is important, people. You cannot deal with internalized homophobia and social - media addiction on an inflatable pink fla...

    I really enjoyed Just Friends and was, therefore, looking forward to the sequel. The first book was fun and didn't take itself too seriously. This one is a bit different. I still enjoyed it, but t...
