Synopsis (Goodreads)
Hannah Cho and Nick Cooper have been best friends since 8th grade. They talk for hours on the phone, regularly shower each other with presents, and know everything there is to know about one another.

There’s just one problem: Hannah and Nick have never actually met.

Hannah has spent her entire life doing what she’s supposed to, but when her senior-year spring-break plans are ruined by a rule breaker, she decides to break a rule or two herself. She impulsively decides to road trip to Vegas, her older sister and BFF in tow, to surprise Nick and finally declare her more-than-friendship feelings for him.

Hannah’s romantic gesture backfires when she gets to Vegas and finds out that Nick has been keeping some major secrets. Hannah knows the real Nick can’t be that different from the online Nick she knows and loves, but now she only has one night in Sin City to figure out what her feelings for Nick really are, all while discovering how life can change when you break the rules every now and then.

When I first heard about this novel, I just knew that I was going to have to get my hands on a copy of it for myself. It took me a week or so after release day to get it {none of the bookstores near me had it in stock, so I had to order in online} and then, I just so happened to hit a reading slump, so I didn’t pick it up until the end of March.

When I finally did start reading In Real Life I flew through the pages and, before I knew it, I was almost at the end. I loved how close Hannah and Nick were, even though they had never met each other face-to-face, but I also knew that when they finally did meet, it wasn’t going to be as plain sailing as everyone hoped it would be.

Love’s writing is so easy to read, and the words just seem to flow over the pages and form images in your head. I cannot wait to see what else this author has in store for us in the future.
