Book Tour: For Real by Chelsea M. Cameron

For Real (Rules of Love #1)
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?
Kat's Review
I like this author, because I find her books fun to read and a great way to spend a few hours on a lazy afternoon. I have to admit, I was a bit unsure of the premise of this book because it seemed a little cliché. Maany New Adult authors are writing variations on the "let's get the virgin laid" theme, and I personally think it's a bit tacky. However, this book went in a very different direction than I was expecting, and didn't end up being a book about that at all.

I loved that the love interest was an Asian guy, because there are so few non-white guys in YA and NA that it was refreshing. Also, there is a bit of a twist at the end that I don't want to give away (although you'll probably figure out while reading), that I also thought was a nice touch.
The story here really is about two people getting to know each other and learning to open up and trust someone of the opposite sex. Both protagonists are nice people, and it's not a case of the good girl taming the bad boy or anything similar. It's just a sweet story of two people who are unsure of relationships figuring things out as they go.
Rating: Worth a Look
I never turn down the chance to read one of this author's books because as I said earlier, they're fun escapes. Chelsea Cameron writes as though she's speaking directly to the reader, and her characters are funny and personable, and they always make me smile.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this title in return for my participation in this book tour. The opinions in the review are mine alone.
