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 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 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.
 So, I was reading this when I was in final , not long ago. I know it seems crazy to do that but I just just need something light and enjoyable to ease the burden in my brain. Because I really need something to read , and books are kinda drug to me. I am addcited.

I knew this was originally comes from wattpad, and you know how wattpad story works. Good girl and bad boy literally just scatter everywhere, on the homepage, on picked-favourites and... just anywhere.

So, I just know what I will be going through and it was kinda expected plot. Really, you just read the synopsis and you will instantly picturing how the story flows.

All this kinda books are just the same but written by different authors, different characters, different places and different dialogues. The beginning, the climax and the ending will be no different. I am just wondering if there's other book out there that has the same idea but 'different' in terms of characters' decisions and plots. If has, do tell me. I am curious.

I think this was a great choice during  final. *cough *cough. Because, yes it was really enjoyable and you can just finish it in one sitting, especially if you just want to forget for a WHILE about what the shit happen in your life. It was easy to fly through the pages as you already know the basic idea of the story,

The first time, I gave hearts for this book, it just went with 2.5 out of 5 hearts. But, thinking of rewarding and appereciating this book as for helping me during my final, I think I am generous enough to give it a 3.
