Emerson

Everyone
thinks they know who I am. I’m that reality TV star that fell in love with
co-star Wesley Rich. But reality wasn’t my life. It was the life I lived in
front of the cameras.
A life
designed to entertain millions of watchers each Monday night.

It only
took one night to relive my past, and one night to forget my future. With
someone who had been there all along.

Logan

Soccer is
my life—it’s in my blood.
I train
hard, I play hard, and I win.  Nothing
will break my focus.

I should
have been able to avoid it, resist the temptation. But it’s there, playing
every Monday night, an obsession I can’t seem to shake.

And I don’t
know what was harder: hiding it from my best friend, or watching the woman I
want live a life with someone else.

OUR REVIEW:

“Remembering who you are, 4 stars”


Emmerson is one half of a Hollywood power couple and shes pretty happy with life. Until she sits down and starts evaluating life and what she wants. A quick trip home should ease her fears but it turns out to be a trip with a domino effect. Will she keep up being the woman on Wes’s arm or will she find that she craves more out of life?

Logan has always been a part of Emmy’s life, that’s what happens when your best friend is her twin and the three of you used to do everything together. Yeah, they’ve all came along ways since then, but he hasn’t forgotten where he came from and when he sees Emmy struggling with that he wants to help. Then one phone call changes everything. After one kiss there is no going back. Their lives have an ocean of water between them, so is there a chance of this working?

I really did enjoy Kicking Reality. Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes out there. But for me the only thing I didn’t really care for were the games. Depending on your definition of cheating this may fall into that category. Then there was the fact that Emmerson let almost everyone in her professional life walk all over her and I hated it.

Did I want these two together? Yes, but there were parts of the story that kind of sucked with where my moral compass sits. Don’t even get me started on the disaster that is the third leg of Emmy and Logan’s tripod. -insert eye roll- As far as I am tracking this is my first story by Masen and I do plan on trying more of her stuff.

So, if you’re in the mood for a book that isn’t so black and white then Kicking Reality maybe it for you.

Excerpt



“You honestly believe all that rubbish? Falling in love? They knew from the start? C’mon. It’s impossible,” I ramble to myself as Logan quietly stands at the edge. “You can spend a whole lifetime knowing someone and still feel unsure if the love is there. Two minutes in a bar and that person is your soulmate? Ludicrous.”



Logan turns his neck, body following until we’re facing each other. His presence radiates with superiority, just like when we were kids. I wasn’t afraid back then and I am not afraid now. His tough-guy persona doesn’t frighten me one bit.



“Hypocritical coming from someone engaged to a man that swore he fell in love with you the moment he saw you?” he questions, sarcasm lacing every word that left his mouth.



The shock of his words cripples my ability to respond with a witty comeback. We weren’t having a good ol’ laugh throwing worms in the bottom of Ash’s school bag anymore. And my initial reaction to his cruel words does nothing to calm the sea of emotions ravaging inside me. Logan Carrington was one of them. They all came from the same seed. The seed of men that felt entitled. Screw women, move on, fuck feelings and repeat.



“Knock, knock . . . anyone home?”



“You’re a jerk,” I mutter.
