When It's Real by Erin Watt is LIVE!

From #1 New York Times bestselling author duo Erin Watt comes the addictive contemporary tale of a teen rock star in need of an image makeover and the teen girl hired to be his fake girlfriend. 

Meet Oakley Ford-teen celebrity, renowned pop star, child of famous movie stars, hottie with millions of fangirls… and restless troublemaker. On the surface he has it all, but with his home life disintegrating, his music well suddenly running dry, and the tabloids having a field day over his outrageous exploits, Oakley's team decides it's time for an intervention. The result: an image overhaul, complete with a fake girlfriend meant to show the world he's settled down.

Enter seventeen-year-old Vaughn Bennett-devoted sister, part-time waitress, the definition of "normal." Under ordinary circumstances she'd never have taken this gig, but with her family strapped for cash, she doesn't have much of a choice. And for the money Oakley's team is paying her, she figures she can put up with outlandish Hollywood parties and a team of publicists watching her every move. So what if she thinks Oakley's a shallow, self-centered jerk? It's not like they're going to fall for each other in real life…right?


I'm in love, absolutely in love with Erin Watt.

This amazing duo has managed to give us a fantastic story about a young, famous music star and a normal girl who catches his heart.

Honestly, I haven't read a YA book in a long time, so I was a little worried when I started reading this book. But I shouldn't have been, because I absolutely love it!

The banter between Oakley and Vaughn is like fireworks, especially at the beginning when they can't stand each other. I wish I had been in the same room to be a witness of their dialogues! 
I had a great time reading about the PR stunts they had to pull up, some of them where really out of the world! And I almost died laughing about the "why" paragraph (if you read the book, you will understand!).

I liked that this book saw a character growth for both Oakley and Vaughn. Oakley was for sure the character who changed the most: at the beginning of the book he appeared like a lost boy, cynic, without a guide in a world full of opportunists and gold-diggers. Thanks to Vaughn, he starts to find his way and his voice, and finds again a purpose in his life.
Vaughn's change is more subtle, but she learns to let go of her past, take control of her life and do not let fears drive her actions.

So yes, it was a great great read, and I strongly recommend everyone to read this book!
