 A romance about confronting fears, making music, and learning to be true.
Rielle Mainline is a rock star with a hardcore image, a troubled heart and a twenty-five city tour to front with her band, Ice Queen. She should be ecstatic. But the tour includes Sydney and Rielle has spent years trying to deal with the tragedy that happened there. 
Roadie, Jake Reed knows Rielle’s reputation as a prize bitch will make being Ice Queen’s tour manager a challenge. Jake’s comfortable he can handle her, until he meets her, and then he’s thrown off-balance, unsure if he wants kiss her or throttle her.
Sparks fly, tempers flare and boundaries are crossed. It’s rock star verses roadie, alpha girl verses the boy-next-door and neither of them will survive unchanged.

Crystal's Quick Thoughts:

Getting Real was an okay read from new-to-me author, Ainslie Paton. 

At the beginning I found it hard to get into the story, and it wasn't until the last half that I started to feel anything for the characters. The heroine more then lived up to her name as the 'Ice Queen' throughout the book. However, the hero Jake was an easy character to like and so was Rielle's brother Rand. I really enjoyed his romantic journey as a side story. 

The ending was wrapped up too quickly for my taste and the pacing was very slow but if you like new adult, lovable heroes, feisty heroines with hard exteriors and music themed stories, you may want to give this one a try. 

Rating: 2.5 Wine Glasses
