* learn to knit
* finish writing my novel
* learn japanese
* stop drinking coffee
* learn american sign language
* re-read all of my favorite series
* take up bike riding
and I'm sure the list will grow and grow! I can't wait :0)

Emma is tired of being good. Always the dutiful daughter to an overprotective father, she is the antithesis of her mother—whose name her dad won’t even say out loud. That’s why meeting Siobhan is the best thing that ever happened to her…and the most dangerous. Because Siobhan is fun and alluring and experienced and lives on the edge. In other words, she’s everything Emma isn’t.
And it may be more than Emma can handle.
Because as intoxicating as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own decisions, Siobhan starts to unravel. It’s more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spinning out of control. Elaborate lies become second nature. Loyalties and boundaries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infamous Afterparty, a bash where debauchery rages and an intense, inescapable confrontation ends in a plummet from the rooftop...

Chelsea Cameron's For Real features one of my absolute favorite tropes in fiction, the fake relationship, and I loved every minute of it. I mostly hated her friends, they were basically the worst kind of friends a girl could have, but Jett, and even Javier, totally made up for them. Shannon was a bit of a pushover, and definitely let the way her friends treated her go on way too long, but if she hadn't let them treat her the way she did, she probably never would have ended up in her situation with Jett. I guess that means I can't hate her friends completely, because I love Jett. He was such a sweet guy and totally hot with his tattoos and mohawk.
The evolution of Shannon and Jett's "fake" relationship was absolutely adorable and there was all kinds of delicious tension between the two of them. There was a somewhat predictable, but still cute, twist toward the end, but it's predictability didn't take away from the story for me. I really enjoyed this couple and definitely recommend reading their story. I don't know if Chelsea is planning on writing another book in this world, but I wouldn't mind reading Javier's story. He turned out to be quite the awesome dude.
