Artificial Sweethearts

Book 2, North Pole, Minnesota

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


It’s not chemistry between Tinka Foster and Sam Anderson that made them agree to fake date. With her parents trying to set her up with an annoying pro-track golf student, and intentionally single Sam’s family pressuring him to bring a date to his brother’s wedding, they could both use a drama-free summer.

So it’s not his muscular arms and quick wit that makes Tinka suggest they tell everyone they’re both taken. Definitely not. And it’s not butterflies that makes a kiss for appearances during the lake party go on way too long—so long that Sam wishes it were real.

But Tinka keeps people at arm’s length—she’s always been second best, even to her parents. And her relationship-for-show could crush everything when she realizes she’s done with fake, pretend, and second-best.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains bikinis at the lake, a lot of making out in dark theaters, and a meet-cute you’ll read twice.

I really really enjoyed this one. Tinka and Sam were such a cute couple. I love the fake relationship trope anyway and in a YA read it was extra cute. Both these characters had family issues they are dealing and it seems a little easier dealing with everything together. This is a nice clean read with some truly great characters. I highly recommend this one.


Tinka & Sam are neighbors with a common cause. They are sick of others trying to set them up with people completely unfit for them. They mean well, but really, who can choose but you for a significant other?

Sam is interested right away. Only he has virtually no experience with which to entice Tinka to be his. So he goes along with the scheme he unwittingly started out of desperation. Along the way, they start to feel more real. If only they could both be on the same page.....

This book was seriously what we call a slow burn. I was really turned off by how shallow and petty most of the characters were. I was about to put the book down - when, would you believe, it started back the other way. I felt every feel with this story and at the end was never so happy to get my HEA.

Amazing fauxmance!

I was so excited to visit North Pole again!! While this is the second book in this series, it can definitely be read as a standalone.

Tinka has just moved to North Pole with her family. She's completely out of her element, doesn't understand what is going on with her parents, and is trying to figure out how to keep away from a guy they keep trying to set her up with. Sam is Tinka's next door neighbor, always has a smile on his face, and rolls with everything that comes his way. He's the ultimate movie geek. Tinka is the ultimate baker. When they both need a relationship to ward off their families, they enter into a mutually beneficial fauxmance. But as their friendship grows so do their feelings.

I love this series. It's heartfelt, deals with real issues, and draws you in so you have no choice but to keep reading. There are so many fantastic characters in this series and I can't wait to see what's next for the residents of North Pole!
