Crusie quickly turns this on its head. The hero dislikes his position and dreams of walking away from his social responsibilities. The heroine dislikes the hero and is actively working to undermine his authority.
Unlike other heroes of the genre, Phin is neither aloof nor a committed bachelor. He is a single father and is portrayed as a loving man who is already comfortable in a domestic role. Welcome to Temptation is, at its core, a feminist defense of the romance genre. Through imagery, characterization, and plot points, Crusie deconstructs many of the complaints that critics frequently leveled against the genre during the s. In so doing, she also echoed her own journey to becoming a novelist, from skepticism to acceptance to an embrace of that which she was originally prepared to dislike.
By having the heroine frequently quote movie lines, Crusie initially implies that Sophie has difficulty distinguishing between reality and fantasy.
The initial movies that she quotes, Tootsie , Psycho , The Manchurian Candidate , and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas , all involve characters whose reality is twisted in some way. As the novel progresses, however, it becomes clear that Sophie is one of the only characters who is fully grounded in reality. The supporting characters have each embraced their own fantasies, causing them to misread their realities and make poor choices. Crusie even explicitly tells the reader that the Garveys do not approve of any type of fiction, yet their characters deceive themselves with fantasies. By contrast, Sophie, the character primarily associated with fiction, both in quoting it and writing it, is shown as more perceptive.
Faking It, by Jennifer Crusie
Sophie embraces fantasy when she begins her liaison with Phin. While describing the first sexual encounter between the protagonists, Crusie alludes directly to Radway's conclusions in Reading the Romance. Crusie uses Sophie's boyfriend, Brandon, as a representation of the romance critic. When Sophie confesses to him that she has engaged in sexual acts with another man, his immediate response is to insist her perceptions of the event are invalid, and, according to Moore and Selinger, reinterpret "her behavior in psycho-political terms", as Radway did in Reading the Romance when she did not accept her subjects' reasons for reading in the romance genre.
In a nod to eighteenth century British amatory fiction , ' Welcome to Temptation explores the boundaries between public and private life, using gossip and the protagonists' seemingly private sexual interactions. The original amatory novels, such as those by Delarivier Manley , contained erotic scenes of seduction, often framed in a voyeuristic way looking through a window , but also a retelling of gossip or scandal , primarily "salacious scandal about real political figures of the day".
The secret life of us
Crusie's heroine embraces this; entire scenes of the screenplay she is writing are based on, or entirely taken from, conversations or sexual interactions she has had with the hero. The protagonists' first sexual encounter occurs outdoors, with the possibility of discovery.
Sophie "willingly exposes herself on screen" by including the event in her film. When the more erotic version of the movie is stolen and shown on local television, the characters must confront the knowledge that their most private moments are now essentially public property.
Both Manley and Crusie's novels use gossip to demonstrate the fluidity between private actions and public perceptions. After other characters paint Sophie in a negative light, she uses the perceptions revealed in their gossip to reinvent herself.

In exchange for keeping her private acts the murder from becoming public, the villain agrees to change her stance on the censorship ordinance; her no vote keeps private opinions private. In the late s, romance novel heroines were usually the "good girls"; while the hero may have a fling with a woman who is highly sexually active, he generally married a less sexual, more sedate woman. This reflected the general socio-cultural norms against a woman's blatant display of sexuality, which were also displayed in other mainstream media.
Flashbacks reveal that Sophie experienced this societal backlash in high school; she was humiliated by a classmate ridiculed her for having sex. In the early part of the book, Sophie agrees to a purely physical affair with Phin, who resembles the boy to whom she lost her virginity.
He seduces Sophie by offering to pleasure her with no expectation of reciprocity, inviting her to explore her sexuality without fear of societal punishment. As Sophie begins to explore her sexuality, she compares their affair to a sexual school and casts Phin in the role of teacher. Critic Kyra Kramer points out that because Phin is also the object of her sexual exploration, he becomes an ally instead of a master. This is a stereotypical scene of female submission to male fantasy, yet the scene ends with Sophie pushing Phin down and straddling him.
She now has the position of power. This signals that their relationship is reaching a state of equality.
Crusie has allowed the bad girl to get the hero. Radway had posited that romances end with marriage because society insists that female sexual desire is only appropriate within its confines.
