Real by Chelsea M. Cameron
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
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?
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.
