The Real Thing Cover Reveal!!

The amazing Cassie Mae has another truly awesome book coming out. (Seriously, truly awesome.)
But I'll let her tell you about it in her own words.

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! 

And here's the actual blurb, and not my picture version :)
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.

About Cassie Mae :)

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.


  1. That was such a fun way to read about your books-- sounds great! (And like something a lot can relate to!)

  2. I am so going to steal this picture blurb thing, because it is utterly awesome! And I really want to read the book now :)

  3. Love the sound of these characters, and the fun way Cassie introduced them to us! The Real Thing seems like a great book. :)

  4. I'm definitely the girl nodding off at the computer. LOL
    Love the cover. :)

  5. Not looking away from the screen long enough to notice the real world is becomoing a fairly common situation, I think.

  6. Ha, love the pic breakdown! Congrats to Cassie on what sounds like another great title.

  7. The way Cassie sets it up is perfect! I can't stop laughing at the man nipples ta da! :)

  8. That dude in the pic where it says "Pay attention to me, I'm bored!" looks like he's jerking off! LOL! It cracks me up! hahaha!
    I love this tho! So stoked for this book!

  9. I especially like the picture where the girl and guy are reading together; that, to me, would be a great date. And I think that a lot of people, particularly readers from the current generation, could relate to this story, seeing as how they're online a majority of the time.

  10. I love it! Super cute way to introduce the concept, Cassie, and what a fun story. (You have such a great voice!)

  11. Wow! What an introduction to the book! Sounds awesome too! Congratulations!
