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?

Kristina’s Review:
First impression? Shannon needs new friends, because these chicks suck major boo-Tay!
How do you find yourself in a situation where your friends are refusing to take you home or give you your phone/keys/life unless you take a random, and lose your virginity to them ASAP?
If this happened to me, I would go out swinging, and fortunately for me Shannon totally gives me what I wanted. She pulls on her big girl panties, and grabs the first guy she recognizes, who also happens to be Jett. A fine specimen, who asked her to watch his computer, and crafted her a paper crane.

What started as a mutually beneficial, and albeit hilarious arrangement between the two, turned into a blur of crossed lines, and kinship.

Chelsea M Cameron crafted amazing secondary characters as well. I’ll admit, Javi creeped me out at first. Hazel made me want to punch her repeatedly in the face for literally half the book. I was so confused over my thoughts for both of these characters, and then I realized that Chelsea did this to me on purpose. She wanted me to be mad along with Shannon at her friends. She also wanted to create a soft spot in my heart for Javier, because he truly is a great character with a strong loyalty to his best friend, Jett.

I’d like to take a step back to admire Jett for a moment.
Mohawk.
Tattoos.
Crane making hands.
*Le Sighhhh*

Okay, back to you regularly scheduled program.

Jett was an all star for me in this story. Where Shannon was a tad neurotic, and kind of immature in a cute way; Jett was the strong calm. A yin to her yang if you will. There was also an underlying story with him I was not expecting at all. It added to the rich personality that Cameron created for Jett. Hell, I wanted to buy him a chair for my dining nook too!

Overall this was a solid 4 in my eyes. It was the type of fun-loving read I needed after reading a dark, deeply emotional novel, as I had prior. I devoured this in one sitting; never coming up for air. Chelsea M. Cameron kept every detail of “For Real” realistic, and reliable. She didn’t exaggerate emotion, or inflate the infamous “first time,” like some authors do. I adored this story, and I’m sure you will too.
