Review: When Fangirls Lie By Marian Tee
When Fangirls Lie
By: Marian Tee
Adult Romance 18+
Sapphire “Saffi” March used to be known as an eccentric genius, the girl who had made a laughingstock of her illustrious family. But she’s reinvented herself since then. Now a post-graduate honor student, Saffi is determined to be a dutiful daughter, with no one in her world ever supposed to know she’s also the most diehard fangirl of Sweden’s #1 Sex God.
It’s her greatest secret, and the times she watches the sex god sing and dance are the only times she could just breathe…and be herself.
Handsome like a classical statue but earthy and sexy like a pagan god, Staffan Aehrenthal is the most wildly successful rockstar that ever came on stage. He should be celebrating being on top of his world, but a woman’s betrayal had Staffan forging a path to self-destruction instead.
Life no longer meant anything – until serendipity introduced him to a beautiful and funny girl with an adorably unique fascination with fishes.
When their worlds collide on one fateful weekend, Saffi is disguised as a gum-chewing hardcore groupie while Staffan pretends he hasn’t been trailing after her all over the Internet. It’s a recipe for the most hilarious and heartbreaking of disasters because when fangirls lie, the craziest things can happen – like a rockstar falling in love.
The thing I love most about Marian's writing is that ability to make you feel such extreme emotions for her characters. This is not the first book Marian has done this to me. I have read many of Marian's stories and I should be immune to her abilities but damn she's good. If you are familiar with Marian's writings you will know that she does not do happily ever after, maybe happy for now but not ever after. Plus she is fabulous about writing such love turmoil between characters that you just want to strangle everyone. It seems that the rock start and billionaire stories are becoming more and more popular, and Marian has combined those two together for When Fangirls Lie.
Without giving too much away, Saffi is a hard core fan of rock star Staffan Aehrenthal. Determined to show that she is his number one fan/groupie, Saffi gets the opportunity to show him that she is just that. Trying to pull off that you are the most sexually experienced woman when you nothing but a virgin proves to Saffi that she just might be in over her head. The last thing Staffan wanted was to fall for another woman after the worst relationship ever with Chloe. Determined to have Saffi but keep her at a distance backfires when he does some of the most stupid things known to man. Why are men so stupid?....
