Final cover
The Real Thing 
By Cassie Mae
Publication: August 19, 2014 by Random House Flirt
What it’s all about: 

Eric Matua has one friend—his best friend and childhood sweetheart, who needs a place to stay for the summer. Mia Johnson has thousands of friends—who live in her computer. Along with her email chats and Facebook notifications, Mia also devours romance novels, spending countless hours with fictional characters, dreaming of her own Romeo to sweep her off her feet. When she starts receiving supersweet messages from a stranger who thinks she’s someone else, Mia begins to believe that real love is possible outside her virtual world.

When the two friends become roommates, Mia finds herself falling harder than she ever thought she could. But Eric keeps his desires locked away, unsure of himself and his ability to give his best friend what she deserves in a boyfriend. As her advances are continually spurned, Mia splits her time between Eric and her computer. But she soon realizes she’s about to lose the only real thing she’s ever had.

Cassie Mae is a nerd to the core from Utah, who likes to write about other nerds who find love. She’s the author of the Amazon Bestsellers REASONS I FELL FOR THE FUNNY FAT FRIEND and HOW TO DATE A NERD, and is the debut author for the Random House FLIRT line with her New Adult novels FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI and SWITCHED. She spends time with her angel children and perfect husband who fan her and feed her grapes while she clacks away on the keyboard. Then she wakes up from that dream world and manages to get a few words on the computer while the house explodes around her. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with the youth in her community as a volleyball and basketball coach, or searching the house desperately for chocolate.

So, this book… it’s about this girl.

And she loves her online time.
Her phone is her buddy.
And her favorite app is her Kindle, because she also LOVES to read.
Read a lot.
Then there’s this boy.
He’s best friends with this bookworm girl.
He sort of has a thing for her.
But, he’s also got major anxiety.
And isn’t sure how to make a move.
So when they end up rooming together for the summer, this guy tries to get this girl to put the screen away long enough for him to win her over.
But of course, it’s not easy to unplug. Especially for an internet junkie.
Hmm… that girl sounds pretty familiar 😉
And here’s the hawt cover for it! 


  1. Fun way to do a book blurb! I love it.

    But, why is she reading the book backwards? Maybe she’s dyslexic? Hmmm.

    Very cute, Coleen and Cassie Mae. Best of luck with sales.
