the real thingTHE REAL THING

by Cassie Mae

Release Date: August 19, 2014

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.

Praise for Cassie Mae

“Cassie Mae’s writing is fresh and original!”—Rachel Morgan, author of the Creepy Hollow series
“A fabulous author who tugs on your heart strings as if she owns them.”—Jade Hart, author of Coffee and Cockpits
“Cassie Mae has a knack for developing characters who have you wanting to climb into the pages and become part of their world.”—Theresa Paolo, author of (Never) Again

“Cassie Mae’s books have become my latest guilty pleasure. Pleasure, because who doesn’t love to read a romantic comedy? And I say guilty because when I lay my hands on one, I tend to read them in one sitting and let all my other responsibilities go to the wayside. What dishes?”—Pauline Creeden, author of Sanctuary

“Mae is very good at getting me to chuckle throughout an entire book, because her heroines are quirky and unique.”Book Nerd


Why am I waiting?

Because it’s a friends-to-lovers story and I love reading about those. Technically, I have an eARC of this one and I can’t wait to start reading this soon.

What are you “waiting on” this Wednesday? I would love to hear all about them.

  1. I’ve yet to read a New Adult novel so I don’t really know what to expect. But this sounds good and romantic so I’d definitely add this to my TBR. Thanks stopping for by! 🙂

    PS. So will you be on Stephanie Perkins’ signing? If yes, then see you there! 😀


  2. Oh this one sounds good, I haven’t read anything by this author before or heard much for that matter but I’m willing to give it a chance 🙂
