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?


I loved the sound of the novel, from the synopsis it appears cute, sexy and totally romantic - which it completely is.

Shannon Travers is twenty-one and still a virgin, a fact that doesn't really bother her much but that her friends obsess over - Shannon has just never met a guy she really seemed to click with.

One night her friends push her too far, and to finally get them off of her back about it, she makes a deal with Jett, a guy covered in tattoos who doesn't conform to the rules - especially the ones Shannon sets out for their fake relationship. 
Both are happy playing at their fake relationship which they agree will end after a month, but what happens if things start to feel real, for the first time ever, as their fake relationship's deadline draws nearer...?

Shannon does seem a little cold and quite the control freak at the beginning of For Real, however this sense soon dissipates as we get to see more of her character and learn the way she think and see how she handles situations. Her character is cautious, but still open to new things, she's smart, a little snarky and very determined.

Jett, at first, seems like he might be a nicer version of the typical tattooed bad boy with a mow-hawk to complete the look, however he is an amazing example of how looks can be deceiving - he's sweet, chivalrous and unique. Some  of the ways Jett behaves and the things he does are so completely adorable.

I actually LOVED how Shannon and Jett fell into their fake relationship and accepted each other so much, the rules and some of the things they do to make their relationship appear authentic are absolutely hilarious.

Shannon's friends really didn't look out for her and the way they treated her was deplorable at times, I really liked how Chelsea got her characters to confront this, showing readers that this kind of behaviour is not acceptable and should not be put up with.
Javi was one of my favourite characters, he knew what was right and wrong, he listened to people and did what he could to help.

For Real explores different family and friendship situations - some incredibly unconventional, but all intriguing and adding to the story, explaining and, at least somewhat, justifying why some characters behave the way they do.

I recommend this novel for anyone who likes a light, easy and gorgeously romantic read - it embodies all of this, while also keeping original and dealing with different hurdles in a way that isn't too over the top dramatic.

Such a cute and adorable read, totally swoony and sweet read, For Real left a smile on my face and I am so looking forward to book two in this series.

I rate For Real Four and a Half out of Five!!!
