Title: For Real

From the Publisher: Two people. One fake relationship. What could go wrong?

When virgin Shannon Travers gets fed up with her friends demanding that she find a boyfriend, she enlists the help of tattooed, mohawk-rocking graphic design student Jett. He’s more than happy to play along with their Fake Relationship, including the Ten Rules of Fake Dating that control-freak Shannon comes up with. Even if he likes to violate them. Repeatedly.

But what happens when Fake Dating starts to feel… not fake anymore? Will Shannon be willing to let go and embrace the first thing in her life that’s ever felt REAL?
4 Stars

For Real completely blew my expectations out of the water. I knew that I had absolutely LOVED My Favorite Mistake but I just didn’t expect to get that level of quality out of another romance. Yes, I’m a snob.

And, yes I was wrong.

Shannon is a virgin. And she’s tired of her friends giving her crap about it. One night they push her too far and she snaps. (Seriously, they go way too far – how she managed to stay friends with those guys is beyond me). She meets Jett (well, re-meets – they’d briefly met once before) and goes home with him. Not to actually have sex with him – just so it looks like she did. But then Shannon and Jett take it one step further – they plan an entire fake relationship to get her friends off her back.

Fake Girlfriend? Meet Fake Boyfriend.

It’s adorable.

They make up rules and everything (Rule #3 is no incidental contact unless they’re in public where they’re expected to be all over each other).

But it turns out… a fake relationship feels an awful lot like a real one. Especially when two people get along as well as Jett and Shannon do.

As the date of doom (the date they planned to “break up”) approaches… things get intense.

And it’s just fabulous.

And honestly – it’s not just Jett and Shannon that made me love this book! Javi and Hazel (the roommates, respectively) were interesting characters in their own right. Enough so that something tells me the next book might just be about those two.

For Real was honestly the best kind of book. It wasn’t insta-love – we got to experience them fall in love as they did. It was sweet. It was beautiful. And it made me remember why I love to read about love.
