In this electrifying novel from Cassie Mae, two close friends surprise themselves by shifting from platonic love to sexual attraction.
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.

First off I would like to thank NetGalley and Random House for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Wow this book, I don't know how to gush over it any more than I am about to. Talk about a story that I completely connected with. At times I thought that I could be Em and Eric my husband. So many of the things that Em is addicted to like, reading, Facebook and her computer are things that I can't seem to get away from as well. The times that she caught herself emerged into her phone or computer I realized that I too had checked my phone a number of times while reading the book. And Eric's feelings and emotions were so close to those that my husband has made known about my addiction were at times uncanny.
I found this book pulling at so many of my emotions. I cried right along with Em, laughed with her and Eric and fell in love right along with them as their relationship grew.
This is a story that will have you lost in characters and a world you could easily find yourself in.
Happy Reading... Adri
