Long Distance Love | In Real Life by Jessica Love

inreallifeGoodreads Blurb: Hannah Cho and Nick Cooper have been best friends since 8th grade. They talk for hours on the phone, regularly shower each other with presents, and know everything there is to know about one another.

There’s just one problem: Hannah and Nick have never actually met.

Hannah has spent her entire life doing what she’s supposed to, but when her senior year spring break plans get ruined by a rule-breaker, she decides to break a rule or two herself. She impulsively decides to road trip to Las Vegas, her older sister and BFF in tow, to surprise Nick and finally declare her more-than-friend feelings for him.

Hannah’s surprise romantic gesture backfires when she gets to Vegas and finds out that Nick has been keeping some major secrets. Hannah knows the real Nick can’t be that different from the online Nick she knows and loves, but now she only has night in Sin City to figure out what her feelings for Nick really are, all while discovering how life can change when you break the rules every now and then.

My Musings:

*Frantically hits the next page button on her kindle* What that’s it? It’s over? Nooooo, that ending! I need more, more I tell you! I loved this book so much. Anyone that’s had an online friendship or romance will enjoy this book. It’s so on point about what its like to have a connection with someone online and how that impacts your life. And of course everyone always harbors that fantasy of going on a road trip to surprise your online friend after months or years of communication.

Hannah’s situation is pretty relatable and I liked her character a lot although her constant procrastination got Super frustrating near the end. I’m talking smack my kindle on my lap, look to the heavens and exclaim “oh come on!” frustrating. I think Hannah’s indecisiveness could be a turn off for some people, and admittedly the novel could stand to be a bit shorter on that front. For me however, I was willing to forgive this annoyance for the simple pleasure of living out an old fantasy through the characters in the book. Light, fluffy(ish) read that I had a lot of fun reading. 4/5

Buy, Borrow or Bin Verdict: Buy (If you don’t mind indecisive characters.)

Note: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
