eARC BOOK REVIEW- The Reality of You by Jean Haus

Title:  The Reality of You  
Author:  Jean Haus
Publication Date:  June 27th 2014

Plot:  Naomi Porter was once witty, fun, and outgoing, but she has scratched outgoing off the list, along with men. She has a mediocre tech job in fabulous New York, a large smut book collection, and awesome friends, both tangible and in an online gaming community. She just doesn’t date. A future filled with cats and housedresses beats having her heart broken again. 

But Naomi still likes men, even kind of stalks—mostly fantasizes about—a gorgeous one at work during lunch.

Her best friend, Kara, is determined that Naomi will be outgoing again. When Kara finds out who, as in a notorious playboy, Naomi is stalking at lunch, she plans to break Naomi of her lunchtime habit and bring her back into the real world. It’s just going to take a bit of deception.

Between all the deceiving, fangirling, and bumbling, Naomi might not be able to resist the temptation of turning her seven-month fantasy into reality. And really, so what if he’s a playboy or a demanding jerk? Her fantasies don’t include love or even like, just a bed or a couch or the back seat of a limo…

Reality might be just what she needs. 

*A sexy romantic comedy intended for audiences 18+

 My Review 

☆I was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!☆

The Reality of You is a light, refreshing, and humorous read that centralizes on issues that every one faces.

Main protagonist, Naomi, is a character that many of us women can personify with even if most of us try to cover up our inner dork. Her hysterical antics with how she stalks and even fangirls hotshot, ladies man executive, Reese (Yum!), was just flat out comical and made me think of myself and how I am with my men in books (a.k.a book boyfriends!).

I’m not saying that this story is purely a romance. There is much more to the plot than that. The Reality of You is about love, self-identity, taking risks, getting ahead, and going for what you want with real life arguments and events at the center of all of it.

#Jean Haus does a great job in giving us readers something new to the table and a stand out new tone in direction from what I’ve been reading lately. Great job hun! This was a fun and steamy read! 

My Rating:
-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 8.5
