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 . . .

Reviews

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
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
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
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
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
