I don't think I have met a character like Shannon, ever. She has nothing against the male species and she has flirted with guys before. It's just that when she becomes intimate with guys, the "disgusting" stuff about being with them becomes magnified. Like having another tongue exploring your mouth? Imagine the germs! Yuck. Hairy man-legs? Double yuck. I found her odd at first but she gradually grew on me as the story progressed and I can see now how this really happens in real life. She is a fun character who's a control freak and one that is relatable at times. I enjoyed her relationship with Jett very much. He is very supportive of her and he can "sexify" everything Shannon thought disgusting about being intimate with guys.
Even though For Real is under the New Adult category and the themes are more mature than I'm used to, I'm glad that this doesn't have steamy scenes in every page. It has just the right amount of sexual tension and I love that Jett's hotness is not always the topic of Shannon's POV. For Real is not without flaws, though. It contains a few plot devices that the book can do without and I found some scenes theatrical. I also think the characters had it way too easy, but still, I truly had fun reading this.
If you're looking for heavy drama, this is not the book for you.Read more ›
When I got to the part where Hazel took her keys (phone? whatever) I wanted to throw my Kindle. At every college in America they preach safety to female students. Don't walk alone, don't get into a situation where you could be at risk, etc. And what does Hazel do? She puts her roommate, and supposed best friend, into a situation that could put her at risk. They were in a bar, she'd been drinking, and Hazel took her keys away from her in order to get her to go home with some random guy. Just so she could lose her virginity. 1) why is it any of Hazel's business. 2) why was Hazel so concerned about that? 3) Hazel almost killed this story for me.
I didn't like Shannon either. She was a huge doormat to her friends. She let it go for WEEKS without saying anything to them. She should have packed her stuff and moved out of the apartment. But, instead, she goes and gets a fake boyfriend so her friends will get off her back. Just stand up for yourself. And after she storms off after finally standing up for herself, her friends get sick with worry? Oh, please. They weren't concerned when they took her keys. Why not just slip her a roofie at the same time?
The only redeeming thing about this book was Jett. And even he seemed to be a bit immature at times. But, he was such a good guy, I could over look it. However, if there are more books in this series, I don't see me continuing with them.
Shannon and Jett are both very sweet characters and from early on you can tell that the feelings they have for each other are genuine. I enjoyed their playful relationship very much, but I was also very frustrated – I didn’t quite get it why they had to fake it when it was so painfully obvious that they both wanted to be together-together more than anything. Why not just be, why fight against it? Why fight against love and happiness?
The relationship Chelsea has cultivated between Shannon and Jett really makes this story. It’s naïve and fragile and tentative. Everything a first real love between two young and inexperienced individuals should be. Their hesitancy and vulnerability comes through every page until you can’t help but find yourself swallowed by the emotions of finally falling. Their conversations are effortless and amusing, unafraid to tease each other and flirt. Things between them feel easy and right. Their connection will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. Chelsea expertly conveys their excitement along with their insecurities.
I adored the emotions this story provoked. While Shannon and Jett are certainly caught up in their changing feelings, there are plenty of challenges to keep their story from becoming stale. Lying to their friends and themselves has consequences and these two find themselves in various uncomfortable situations that force them to confront the heat building between them. I loved Shannon’s best friend Hazel and Jett’s roommate Javier. These two are seemingly the total opposite of Shannon and Jett and the juxtaposition of their personalities was incredibly amusing. I hope we will see more of these two in the future. For Real is a heartwarming and unmistakably sweet story of self-discovery and love.
