3_4 Love Reality CoverA 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.

Enjoy an excerpt:

When all was said and done, there was the usual assortment of good-looking surfer boy CEOs and investment banker types, business men, pilots, a couple in the military. Not a single one of them would be considered average in the looks department, but then, this was television. And the producers had even provided a smattering of color with Tyrell, Marcus, Miguel, who was Hispanic, and finally Channing, who appeared to be Asian.

She shifted uncomfortably. The damn shoes pinched. Note to self. Last time she gave Jamie Lee final say on her wardrobe.

The last limo rolled up, and by now Mia was relaxed enough to smile genuinely. This part hadn’t been nearly as scary as she’d thought it would be. Even if the guys were surprised to see her, they mostly recovered quickly.

The hairs on her arms stood at attention when the limousine door opened. From her position, she couldn’t clearly see the guy’s face, but he was one of the tallest. The smooth way he exited the limo told her he moved like an athlete. It wasn’t until she turned around fully that her stomach lurched. Oh, God. No no no.

He stopped in his tracks the moment he caught sight of her. Before he continued forward up the stairs, he dragged in deep breath. In his hands, he held an orchid.

His gaze met hers, and Mia completely forgot about the cameras. All she could do was stare. He brushed a kiss on her cheek, near her ear.

“It seems I am at a complete loss for words, you’re so beautiful.” Carefully, he fixed the flower to her hair and stood back. “It’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is Ryan.”

Mia blinked. Then again. He had no right to smell so good and look so good. This was not according to plan. Not at all. As her body struggled for equilibrium, her brain remained rock steady. He was here.

But he wouldn’t be staying. Mia would make sure of it.
