When It’s Real

When It’s Real

Wealth, fame and a real-life romance she never expected—seventeen-year-old Vaughn Bennett lands it all when she agrees to become a pop star’s fake girlfriend in this smart, utterly addictive novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author duo Erin Watt Book Review | When It;s Real

Under ordinary circumstances, Oakley Ford and Vaughn Bennett would never even cross paths.

There’s nothing ordinary about Oakley. This bad-boy pop star’s got Grammy Awards, millions of fangirls and a reputation as a restless, too-charming troublemaker. But with his home life disintegrating, his music well suddenly running dry and the tabloids having a field day over his outrageous exploits, Oakley needs to show the world he’s settling down—and who better to help him than Vaughn, a part-time waitress trying to help her family get by? The very definition of ordinary.

Posing as his girlfriend, Vaughn will overhaul Oakley

‘s image from troublemaker to serious artist. In return for enough money to put her brothers through college, she can endure outlandish Hollywood parties and carefully orchestrated Twitter exchanges. She’ll fool the paparazzi and the groupies. She might even start fooling herself a little.

Because when ordinary rules no longer apply, there’s no telling what your heart will do…

I love the Hallmark channel.

It’s weird because when they get mushy my internal response is “gag me” but I still watch them.

Sometimes I enjoy a cute, short, totally unrealistic and mostly predictable story. 

Yes, I know this scenario is probably a Disney channel movie scenario but I still enjoyed it! As long as there is a happy ending I can ignore the unrealistic part. Most of the books I read are unrealistic so why not the romance ones?

So often in real life, there isn’t a happy ending. That is my defense. It should happen somewhere!

I read this in 2 days around working a full-time job so if you want a quick read this could be done in a day. It hooked me quickly because Vaughn isn’t falling all over Oakley. She is snarky and sometimes rude and I loved every minute!

About the author(s):

Erin Watt is the brainchild of two bestselling authors linked together through their love of great books and an addiction to writing. (I only recently found this out!) They share one creative imagination. Their greatest love (after their families and pets, of course)? Coming up with fun–and sometimes crazy–ideas. Their greatest fear? Breaking up. (Would that mean no more books?)


Although I enjoyed this book as well as other Erin Watt books I would not hand them over to my daughter (If I had one) or and nieces under 18 and that may be me being overprotective but there is my warning just the same.
