Wealth, fame and a real-life romance she never expected—seventeen-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 #1 New York Times bestselling author duo 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…

REVIEWED BY JILL
4 stars for - When It's Real - by the incredible author pairing of Erin Watt. This is a complete stand-alone, totally separate from the Royals series. While the book is classified as part of the young adult genre I think it would be best enjoyed by those who are at least in their late teens as it deals with more adult issues.
Vaughn Bennett is not your average seventeen-year-old girl. She graduated high school a year early so she could stay home and help her older sister raise her twin twelve-year-old brothers after their parents died in a car accident. The life insurance their parents left them with barely covered the cost of the house they live in so it's up to Vaughn and her sister to ensure their brothers' futures. So when the opportunity arises to work for one year as Oakley Ford's girlfriend there is no way she can turn down that kind of money.
Oakley Ford is a hot mess and has been for quite some time. At nineteen he has seen and done things that people twice his age only dream of doing. With both of his parents being famous actors - Oakley had been in the spotlight long before his career in music began. Nobody seemed to mind until he started getting into a bit of trouble for his hard partying ways. With his manager deciding that his image needs a overhaul a sweet and wholesome "girlfriend" is hired to clean up his image. Oakley never expected to fall for the fake girlfriend though and now that it's real he has no idea what to do...
This was sweetness, drama, angst and love all rolled into one like only Erin Watt can do. Not only did I fall in love with Vaughn and Oakley, but all the other characters have me wanting to know more about them too. I really hope for more in the future :)
