The Real Thing by Cassie Mae


In this electrifying novel from New Adult sensation Cassie Mae, two close friends surprise themselves by shifting from platonic love to sexual attraction.

Eric Matua has one friend—his best friend and childhood sweetheart, who needs a place to stay for the summer. Mia Johnson has thousands of friends—who live in her computer. Along with her email chats and Facebook notifications, Mia also devours romance novels, spending countless hours with fictional characters, dreaming of her own Romeo to sweep her off her feet. When she starts receiving supersweet messages from a stranger who thinks she’s someone else, Mia begins to believe that real love is possible outside her virtual world. 
When the two friends become roommates, Mia finds herself falling harder than she ever thought she could. But Eric keeps his desires locked away, unsure of himself and his ability to give his best friend what she deserves in a boyfriend. As her advances are continually spurned, Mia splits her time between Eric and her computer. But she soon realizes she’s about to lose the only real thing she’s ever had.

My Review

To start out I will say that I love this author and most of her books. Now....although this had a great storyline in it, I just wasn't feeling it. Mia just pissed me off with how stupid she was being. Does she really think it's ok to have a relationship with someone while secretly having conversations with another? Now if she hadn't of been so secret about it I may feel differently.  But look at what happened....I'm sorry but if someone was continuously emailing me thinking I was  someone else and after repeatedly telling them I wasnt that person then I would block them so fast heads would spin. I loved the relationship between Mia and Eric,  I realize he isn't quite your normal guy and the things he is dealing with are hard on him, but I just love him. I had a friend who was a bigger guy that reminded me of a giant teddy bear and I loved him to death.  I too had a crush for the longest time but eventually it became the love for a brother. There were times I wished he would tell her how he was feeling so maybe he wouldn't have gotten so worked up.   Overall I did enjoy the book I just wish things were a little different.  


About the Author

Cassie Mae (who dawns the name Becca Ann on occasion) is the author of a few hundred… okay, maybe not that many… books. Some of which became popular for their quirky titles, characters, and stories. She likes writing about nerds, geeks, the awkward, the fluffy, the short, the shy, the loud, the fun. 

Since publishing her bestselling debut, Reasons I Fell for the Funny Fat Friend, she has published and sold books to Random House, Swoon Romance, and Spencer Hill Press. She has a favorite of all her babies, but no, she won’t tell you what it is. (Mainly because it changes depending on the day.) 

Along with writing, Cassie likes to binge watch Teen Wolf and The Big Bang Theory. She can quote Harry Potter lines quick as a whip. And she likes kissing her hubby, but only if his facial hair is trimmed. She also likes cheesecake to a very obsessive degree.
