In Real Life by Jessica Love Review!

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 get ruined by a rule-breaker, she decides to break a rule or two herself. She impulsively decides to road trip to Las Vegas, her older sister and BFF in tow, to surprise Nick and finally declare her more-than-friend feelings for him.



Hannah's surprise 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 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.





Review:
Thanks so much to Raincoast books for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

This book was one of my most highly anticipate reads of the year. I was super excited for it and when I got to reading it, I finished it incredibly quickly. It was a short read, which for the most part, I enjoyed.


Although I enjoyed the novel, I am unable to give it a full 5 stars. One of my problems was with Nick. I was not a fan of his reasons for lying, especially considering their relationship was virtual. Why he felt the need to hide things, felt incredibly pointless to me.

Generally, I enjoyed Hannah. I wish she would have told Nick her true feelings sooner instead of constantly  hiding it from not only him, but also herself.

Overall, I enjoyed this novel and I think many others will as well. My only problem was with the way some situations were handled, which could have been omitted, if the book were slightly longer.

3.5/5 Stars!
