Publisher's Summary

Wealth, fame, and a real-life romance she never expected - 17-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 number-one New York Times best-selling author Erin Watt.

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....

    "Innocence rules ok !!"

    A five star story from Erin who never fails to write "page turners". Entertaining and not relying on sex to sell the story this book was funny and also eye opening to the world of show business. I lovely intro of angst into the back of the story kept my interest and the little twist made things real instead of a " fairy tale" . Highly recommended like allher books I've read.

    "Enjoy the story but not the voices"

    I thought the story was sweet and I enjoyed it. Not my all-time favorite book but enjoyable nonetheless easy to listen to and not a lot of angst.

    What I did not like was the voice choices I thought they made Vaughn sound whiny and overly dramatic and Oakley's voice and accent did not match at all what I think it should've been. He had some sort of Midwestern Twang which I thought odd for somebody who supposed to be a 20-year-old southern California boy

    Story
    "Heartwarming & Real"
    Where does When It's Real rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really love the narrator's. They really made the book come alive. I loved the voice of both of the characters in the book.


    What other book might you compare When It's Real to and why?

    I would compare this book to any sweet YA/NA book where there is a HEA and a tad bit of drama.


    What about Caitlin Kelly and Teddy Hamilton ’s performance did you like?

    OMG, I love Caitlin Kelly!! She is such a good narrator. Love her voices. Her girls sound like girls and her guys have a very nice raspy timber to them to make it sound like a young man speaking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Its a feel good book. It did not make me cry, but laugh in a few places. It's a guilty pleasure to give you the 'feels'.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Erin Watts. She doesn't have a ton of books out there yet, but I have a gut feeling she will go very far. Loved the Royals books and I cannot wait to see the next chapter on Easton's story. I would love to read more books similar to this theme and the Royals from Ms. Watts. Read'em you won't be disappointed.

    "Loved it!"

    This one is not as messed up as the Paper Princess series, but it's just as powerful. I totally enjoyed this stand alone live story.
