New Release Book Review: The Real by Kate Stewart

About the Book

They say it happens when you least expect it.

It did for me.

It started the moment I saw the simple message pop up on my computer screen:

Cameron’s Mac: Hi.

And when I met the eyes of the gorgeous man messaging me from across the coffee shop, I never thought my reply would lead to the most intense, sexual, and passionate relationship of my life.

We both agreed to check our bags at the door and put our future hopes and aspirations on the table.

It worked.

I fell in love with his no holds barred attitude, sexy smirk, and undeniably good heart . . . and for a while we forgot about our baggage. We happily tripped over it to get to the other, neither of us willing to show the contents of our pasts in the off chance it could ruin us.

We built our love on a foundation of gray.

It was life in black and white that threatened to tear us apart.

My Thoughts

This book is about so many things; love, trust, passion, fear, happiness, escapism, fun, acceptance, paranoia, maltreatment, addiction, neglect, anger, strength, support, humour, possessiveness, attraction, intimacy and I’ll add love again, because there is plenty of that. And it all blends into a remarkable book that I could not put down.

Cameron King and Abbie Gorman are instantly attracted to each other but Abbie’s wariness leads them into one of the most charming courtships I have read.

Their journey, however, is not straightforward; there are emotional walls to be breached and secrets to be exposed. There were some definite “I did not see that coming” moments for me that held me enthralled. Ever better, the fallout is written sympathetically and with heart. I never felt like playing the blame game with these characters. I wanted to help them with their struggles and help Cameron and Abbie find their way to each other.

Finally, I have to mention Abbie’s best friend, Bree. She was such a fun character. Her madcap ways and her views on life – which she is prone to announce loudly and often in public – are priceless. My wish is for everyone to have a Bree in their life.
