Zee's March Pick of the Month

Faking It by Elisa Lorello

After breaking off her engagement, thirty-something writing professor Andi Cutrone abandons New England for her native Long Island to focus on her career and start over. When she meets Devin at a cocktail party, the sight of an honest-to-goodness male escort shocks her—and fascinates her more than a little. Months later, Andi impulsively calls Devin. Over cheesecake in Brooklyn, she offers him a proposition: he will teach her how to be a better lover, and in return, she will give him writing lessons. He agrees, and together they embark upon an intense partnership that proves to be as instructive as it is arousing. For in the midst of lessons in rhetorical theory and foreplay, Andi and Devin delve into deeper questions about truth, beauty, and self, gradually coming face-to-face with the issues at the core of their emotional limitations. Smart, witty, and introspective, Faking It is an engrossing novel about two people discovering their authentic selves.

My Thoughts:
Every spring promises a fresh perspective, and things like spring cleaning, whether in your life or your closet, always seems in order. With that, I thought Faking It would be a marvelous pick of the month. With promises of being introspective, authentic, and true to love and knowledge of self, I think Faking It should be on the top of every woman's TBR list. I will definitely be reading it this month.
