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 thats ever felt REAL?

 Review by Janeane - ARC received for honest review

For real is a sweet romance based around the premise of "virgin-pushed-to-lose-her-v card- by-bossy-friends" 

Shannon is a college junior and shock of shock, she is a virgin.  This does not sit well with her friends who drag her out to hook up with a random guy to "do it".

I like Shannon.  Yes, she is a bit of a doormat when it comes to her friends, but she is smart and witty.

A chance meeting with Jett sets her on a course she never expected.

After her friends piss her off when they are out one night, she runs into Jett and a plan to get her friends off her back comes to fruition - she spends the night with him, and even though nothing happens, they tell the friends they had sex.

Jett has had the same kind of pressure from his best friend and room mate Javier, so this plan is perfect for both of them.

From the start I could tell where the story was going to go with Shannon and Jett, but watching it all unfold was a joy

I really didn't take to Shannon's friends, especially Hazel.  In fact I found her to be a bit of a bitch, and I wanted to slap her at times, and then shake Shannon to tell her to wake up to herself.  Though I did get the pom poms out when she finally stood up to them and gave them the big 
 Jett's roommate and best friend was also not what I expected.  After his first lot of antics, I was all
but as the story continued my opinion of him did a complete 180, and he was a better friend to Shannon than her own were.

This was a quick read, and I very much liked Ms Cameron's writing style.  The thing was though, just as it was getting right in and juicy, the story ended.  It was all travelling along then BAM  the end!

If you have a couple of hours to till and want it filled with sweetness, give For Real a go
