Peek Inside Act Like You Love Me

Brynn McAdams isn’t the drama geek she was in high school anymore. But when her old crush, the unattainable Sawyer Raines, shows up to direct her community play, she’s determined to pretend she isn’t the girl he rejected all those years ago. As Brynn’s lies start to snowball, she struggles to stop acting and come clean. But what if Sawyer is already falling for the fake Brynn, not the Brynn she truly is?

All’s fair in acting and amore…

Brynn McAdams isn’t the awkward drama geek she was in high school—she’s grown up and confident, or at least she likes to think so. But when her old crush, the impossibly handsome and unattainable Sawyer Raines, comes back to town to direct her community play, Brynn finds herself determined to be someone other than the girl he doesn’t even recognize. Good thing she’s an excellent actress.

After his bad breakup in NYC, the last thing Sawyer wants is to get involved with another actress. But the glamorous and beautiful Brynn draws him in, even though as her director, he knows she’s off-limits. There’s just something about the woman that feels…familiar. Like home.

As Brynn’s lies start to snowball, she struggles to stop acting and come clean. But what if Sawyer is already falling for the fake Brynn, not the Brynn she truly is?

Each book in the Accidentally in Love series is a STANDALONE:
*Falling for Her Fiancé

4.5 shining stars!!

I've been incredibly lucky with my run of great books lately, and this one was no exception. Act Like You Love Me was wonderful from beginning to end.

Brynn McAdams was a dork in high school. One of her most embarrassing moment happened during a school play when one of her co-star ...more

For as much as the first book in Cindi Madsen's Accidentally in Love series is a friends-to-lovers story, Act Like You Love Me is the opposite. Brynn McAdams may have worshipped Sawyer Raines in high school, but they're hardly friends. As a matter of fact, when Sawyer returns home from NYC to help w ...more

4 stars - Loved swooning over Sawyer!

Been a moody reader lately. I was a rebel and read this book instead of what was next on my list. I loved book one, Falling For Her Fiance, and couldn't stand to wait any longer. May just be in the summer loving mood too.

This one is quick. Read it in an evening. ...more

Tried to put this in the 'next pile' but I snuck a peek along with three others and already I can't put it down and my house is a mess as I swap from book to book falling in love at every turn.

Act Like you Love me is killing me because I want to turn one more page ONLY, and then an hour is gone.

I liked this book better than Falling For Her Fiancé - not that I have to compare. I'm an Oscar Wilde freak, so I loved The Importance of Being Earnest woven into the story. :) Another sweet, fun romance with unique characters. ...more

Reviews: 4 ½ out 5 Stars

Cindi Madsen first came to my attention when I stumbled across her Young Adult novel, All the Broken Pieces. I didn’t realise Act Like You Love Me was a part of a series but it didn’t feel like a second book to me and I don’t think I missed out on anything by not reading the ...more

By Autumn Review June 12, 2013

Once again, Madsen delivers a witty and sweet romance! I really enjoyed getting to know Brynn and Sawyer. Act Like You Love Me made me laugh and swoon. The perfect recipe for a light-hearted contemporary romance!

Unlike Dani and Wes, Brynn and Sawyer were not friends. Well...they didn't start out tha ...more

By Kelly June 10, 2013

I love it when there is a story in a story or in this case a play called “The Importance of Being Earnest”. To be honest, I haven’t seen it but I got enough from the book to know some of it. In it things are built upon some lies. But as in this story, lies always get out of control and it is hard to ...more

By Jules June 15, 2013

ACT LIKE YOU LOVE ME by Cindi Madsen is a wonderful contemporary romance, available just in time for summer!! This novel will draw you in, hook, line and sinker! Yes, that is a fishing reference, because our heroine works in her family’s bait shop, Bigfish!! Brynn McAdams was an awkward teenager gro ...more

NOTE: Thanks to Entangled for letting me read this amazing book!

The only other book I've read by Cindi Madsen is All The Broken Pieces. It was so good, that I just had to request to read this one too. To tell you the truth, I'm glad I did, because it definitely didn't disappoint.

5 Stars!

I loved this book! It got me hooked from the first minute.
Thanks to “Act like you love me” I didn’t get a lot of sleep for two nights because I just couldn’t put it down anymore.

I loved Brynn. She got really tangled up in all the lies she spun to get around ...more

By Diana June 12, 2013

Act Like You Love Me was a good example on how people can change over time. In high school Sawyer was the self-absorbed jock and Brynn was a weird theater geek. You also learn about other people (especially bullies) from their high school who have changed for the better.

One of the things I liked abo ...more

I started this book late in the evening thinking I could get some reading done while I waited in the car at the train station for my stepdad, with my mom. That way I could kill time and get ahead with some reading. But basically, I kept reading and reading all the way home and well into the night an ...more

Act Like You Love Me had me smiling the entire way through.

Brynn is adorable. She's a very real, down-to-earth character that I found very easy to relate to. My high school experiences were nothing like hers but you really felt for her and understood what she went through.

Brynn was the highlight o ...more

Act Like you Love Me is a great Book.

If you read the first book in this series, you'll totally love this one. We get to see Dani and Wes for a bit.
But most of all you get all the feelings just like you did with Falling...

I loved this book from page one. Brynn makes some bad choices but she lives u ...more

Cindi Madsen's Act Like You Love Me had me from the word go! This was an excellent read and I finished it in one night (ok, stayed up way past my bedtime reading!) Brynn and Sawyer are very well written and totally believable characters, who had a great sexual chemistry between them. Who doesn't rem ...more

By a & e May 17, 2013

This book was great. It should what the insecurities of a teenage girl would be like in high school and how those experiences could shape our view on life. Brynn's story is really sad; Sawyer's story was sad too but I felt it easier to connect to Brynn-- maybe it's because I can relate to what she w ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Cindi Madsen

Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
