A romantic who believes in love…
Walking love disaster, Mia Donovan, is a reality television production assistant by day, secret dating blogger, Lonely Girl, by night. All she has to do to get the job of a lifetime is face her fears and step in front of the camera. Unfortunately that also means dating her nemesis, Single Guy, for the entire world to see.
A cynic giving love advice…
Reluctant, dating columnists, Ryan Matthews, otherwise known as Single Guy, thinks reality-dating shows are soul-sucking endeavors that have more to do with selling unrealistic expectations than love. But for a shot at writing serious stories, he’s willing to go undercover on Love Reality to do an exposé on the dating competition. What he doesn’t count on, is falling in love.

Excerpt from Love Reality
The fluttering low in her belly told her she was in trouble. But it was her brain perking up that told her she was a goner. She slid into the booth next to him. "You're right. I made an assumption. And we all know when you make an assumption, you make an ass out of you—"
He didn't even let her finish, as they excitedly chanted in unison "—and umption."
He laughed. "What? You thought you were going to get me with a Samuel L. quote? Long Kiss Goodnight is a classic movie. Okay, now that I pass muster on movies and music. Time to get personal. Text or talk."
She didn't even need to think about it. “For flirting, text. For emotional connection, talk. I know how guys are with the phone, but I prefer it. Besides, phone sex is so much hotter than sexting. A picture might speak a thousand words, but it’s all about the tease. It’s hotter.”
“Will you marry me?“
Mia laughed. “You’ll have to work a lot harder than that. It’s like sending an email to say thank you. Sure, it’s convenient, but a letter is so much more personal. When I’m pitching a show, I always send a personal letter.”
“How can you talk about phone sex and be so old fashioned?”
It was too easy to talk to him, to flirt. Mia felt like someone else. “I’m a woman. It’s all part of the mystery.”
And they went back and forth like that for an hour. There, in the dim light of the secluded bar, she chatted with a stranger about what she liked to read and her favorite food and favorite indulgences as if she'd known him forever. Maybe this was one of those epic nights that movies were based on. He was fun and relaxed. He didn't seem to take himself too seriously. She could use some of that in her life.
But it wasn't until he asked her for her favorite drink that things got interesting. "It's a toss-up between a Caiprihna and a mojito. All depends on who's making it."
His eyes lit up. "Come with me." He stood.
"What? Where are we going?"
He laughed. "It's called going on an adventure. Surely you've been on one before?"
"Yes. Just not with total strangers."
"Relax. We'll catch a cab. And, I'm taking you somewhere very public. It just happens to be one of my favorite places in the city. Are you game?"
That was the real question. She usually played it safe. But the tiny voice in her head kept telling her to live a little. Have some fun. For one night, she could let go, right? "Okay, but I warn you, if you plan on trying to chop me up into little pieces, I'm going to make it very difficult for you."
He chuckled. "Noted. Now are you up for an adventure, or aren't you?"
Mia watched him warily when he held out a fist to her.
“Will you hold this for a second?”
She automatically reached her hand out, and he opened his hand to take hers. “Now we’re dating and I’m not a stranger.”
Despite herself, Mia laughed but clasped his hand tightly. "Lead the way."
