I am so stoked for the many fake dating books coming out this year and one that I have high on the TBR is Tashie Bhuiyan’s Counting Down with You. Fake dating is one of my favorite tropes. I don’t care if it’s predicable or how many times I read these books, they always feel like a warm cup of hot chocolate on a cold night. Also, peek at the page count on this one. I can’t remember the last time I read such a long contemporary book. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
Title: Counting Down with You
Author: Tashie Bhuiyan
Publisher: Inkwell Press
Publication Date: May 4, 2021
“A reserved Bangladeshi teenager has twenty-eight days to make the biggest decision of her life after agreeing to fake date her school’s resident bad boy.
How do you make one month last a lifetime?
Karina Ahmed has a plan. Keep her head down, get through high school without a fuss, and follow her parents’ rules—even if it means sacrificing her dreams. When her parents go abroad to Bangladesh for four weeks, Karina expects some peace and quiet. Instead, one simple lie unravels everything.
Karina is my girlfriend.
Tutoring the school’s resident bad boy was already crossing a line. Pretending to date him? Out of the question. But Ace Clyde does everything right—he brings her coffee in the mornings, impresses her friends without trying, and even promises to buy her a dozen books (a week) if she goes along with his fake-dating facade. Though Karina agrees, she can’t help but start counting down the days until her parents come back.
T-minus twenty-eight days until everything returns to normal—but what if Karina no longer wants it to?”
