THE RIOTOUSLY FUNNY NEW NOVEL FROM JUSTIN MYERS, MASTER OF THE MODERN-DAY ROM COM

'Everything I want from a rom com. It's warm, funny and whip smart' Laura Kay, author of THE SPLIT

'A brilliantly funny reimagining of the romcom, full of helter-skelter twists' Adam Kay, author of THIS IS GOING TO HURT

'Myers is the master of the comic metaphor' Matt Cain, author of THE SECRET LIFE OF ALBERT ENTWISTLE

TWO EXES. ONE BIG SECRET. LET THE GAMES BEGIN...

Dylan and Flo are in love. The only trouble is, they broke up months ago and everyone was delighted for them.

At first, it's exciting sneaking around, hiding from disapproving friends, climbing through bedroom windows to avoid family, and concocting hilarious disguises. It's like Romeo and Juliet. With more sex and less poison.

But soon it becomes harder to separate truth from lies. Dylan and Flo are in way over their heads, and the games have only just begun . . .

What real readers are saying about The Fake-Up

'The Fake-Up is a five-star read that will keep you guessing all the way through' FIVE STARS

'I could not put the book down, it was a rollercoaster of a journey . . . It reminded me a lot of Sophie Kinsella . . . You will really fall in love with the characters' FIVE STARS

'I love Justin Myers' writing and this book, his third, is just brilliant . . . It's enjoyable especially because the characters have flaws, they are human and their situations are not farfetched, while being fantastic. Total triumph!'

'A funny, laugh-out-loud story with believable and relatable characters. It gripped me from the very start and kept me up til late in the night wanting to read 'just one more chapter' FIVE STARS

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Fake-Up is everything I want from a rom com. It's warm, funny and whip smart. I feel like I know all the characters, they just leap off the page. I couldn't put it down -- Laura Kay, author of THE SPLIT
Justin Myers has done it again - a brilliantly funny reimagining of the romcom, full of helter-skelter twists -- Adam Kay, author of THIS IS GOING TO HURT
Fresh, funny and full of twists and turns * Daily Mail *
A mischievous romantic comedy that doubles as a satire of influencers, modern media and phonies . . . It's got heart and bite: Myers uses his razor keen eye for observation, dialogue and character to the wittiest effect * Evening Standard *
The Fake-Up is laced with the author's signature wit and wisdom, and is another absolute banger. Myers is the master of the comic metaphor, the mistress of the modern romcom - and nobody does pop culture better! -- Matt Cain, author of THE SECRET LIFE OF ALBERT ENTWISTLE
Insightful and deliciously funny * Daily Express *
In Flo and Dylan, Justin Myers has created two utterly loveable characters you'll really root for. Cheeky, fun and uplifting, The Fake-Up is just what the world needs right now! -- Laura Price, author of SINGLE BALD FEMALE
A quirky, off-beat rom-com from the master of the one-liner * Best *
Witty, original and sharply observed - The Fake-Up is an utterly modern rom-com. I loved it -- Phoebe Luckhurst, author of The Lock In
Riotously funny and ridiculously clever. Justin somehow manages to make you snort with laughter and move you to tears within a few pages - I don't know how he does it. It's a brilliant story and compelling AF. The Fake-Up absolutely cements Justin as one of my fave writers -- Lucy Vine, author of HOT MESS
Adored it. So bitingly funny, brilliantly observed and full of beautifully believable characters - everything you'd expect from Justin Myers. Just a really very good time -- Lauren Bravo, author of WHAT WOULD THE SPICE GIRLS DO?

“Not what I expected”

I was drawn to this book by the summary. The story sounded fun and romantic and I really wanted to like it, but it wasn’t meant to be. From the beginning, I had trouble liking both the story and the characters. I... More
