THE REAL: Is a full length romance novel from author Kate Stewart. 
In this we meet Cameron and Abbie. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.'

Thirty year old Abbie Gorman is a quirky character that had many an issue from imaginary things that didn’t go bump in the night working by day as a corporate financial consultant. 

Thirty four year old Cameron Bledsoe owned a few small chain sporting good stores and coached high school kids part time. Dubbed The King of Woo with his dirty mouth and one liners that had me swooning with the rest of the readers, 

Abbie’s favourite place to just leave her inhibitions at the door and pretend that she was part of a functioning society where her many unfounded issues didn’t exist was a little cafe shop called ‘Sunny Side’ with it’s wobbly table and coffee that she couldn’t get enough of in Chicago a place not far from her three-flat place in Wicker Park. 

They say it happens when you least expect it. 

It all started when Cameron Bledsoe simply sent Abbie an air drop message from his mac, from across the coffee shop.. one simple word. Hi 

We have front row seats as they drink from mugs with funny quotes as we read their exchanges, as they make small talk getting to know each other slowly behind their keyboards by mixing the old school of dating with new with rules set in concrete as they both enter through those doors of ‘Sunny Side’ they leave their baggage at the door, no heavy talk about past exe’s whatsoever, no personal history. No baggage...No Past...Only the here and now... 

The feels hit when they aren't so jaded and take that step into the real world and share their first kiss right outside on the pavement of ‘Sunny Side’ His kiss gave me life and death. The end of everything as I knew it and the beginning of a need, a craving for only him. things from that point onwards run smoothly but in the background that cynic in me reared its ugly head and yelled it’s runnin too smoothly when out of nowhere we’re hit with a wtf moment, a game changer, my jaw dropped, my heart stopped, I couldn’t believe what I’d read, but just like real life lessons and bumps in the road we learn by reading what these two went through to find their common ground again. 

I'm giving this book 5 stars because I felt everything that I could personally feel whilst reading this. The feels just came out of nowhere and bulldozered me down. The swooning #KingofWoo, The angst, The giggles (galore), the journey these two characters took me on was so unique I dare you to compare it to anything you've read before. A riveting page-turner of unputdownable proportions, once picked up it was hard to put down. Highly addictive. Highly seductive. Highly recommended. A slow moving... A slow burn... A slow ignite to all the feels..

I loved this to the moon and back!!
They say it happens when you least expect it.

It did for me. 

It started the moment I saw the simple message pop up on my computer screen: 

Cameron’s Mac: Hi. 

And when I met the eyes of the gorgeous man messaging me from across the coffee shop, I never thought my reply would lead to the most intense, sexual, and passionate relationship of my life. 

We both agreed to check our bags at the door and put our future hopes and aspirations on the table. 

It worked. 

I fell in love with his no holds barred attitude, sexy smirk, and undeniably good heart . . . and for a while we forgot about our baggage. We happily tripped over it to get to the other, neither of us willing to show the contents of our pasts in the off chance it could ruin us. 

We built our love on a foundation of gray. 

It was life in black and white that threatened to tear us apart.

Kate Stewart lives in Charleston, S.C. with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. A native of Dallas, Kate moved to Charleston three weeks after her first visit, dropping her career of 8 years, and declaring it her creative muse. Kate pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it's what she loves as a reader. A lover of all things '80s and '90s, especially John Hughes films and rap, she dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity only and does a horrible job of playing the ukulele. Aside from running a mile without collapsing, traveling is the only other must on her bucket list. On occasion, she does very well at vodka.
