      Second chance with a bit of a spin!I liked the whole reality show plot point of the story. It was intriguing to me, because even if it’s not a “new” trope per say, it can be approached so many different ways and I think it was done well as a second chance romance in Kissed by Reality!I took stars away only because some of the angst in this story didn’t really work for me. Plus even though it was real for the hero to have feelings for other women in the scenario they were in it still felt [...]

      ‘Four months ago I dreamed about coming here with Finn. Two weeks ago I’d never imagined I’d be here in this lifetime with him.But here I was, three Irish car bombs in, surrounded by 10 other Mr. Right contestants and the man I loved, but who I wasn’t certain even liked me.’Carrie Aarons is a new to me author and if all her books are as good as this one than I am sure I will be reading through them all very soon. Typically books about “famous” people are not for me especially books [...]

      Started to skim when the hero repeatedly says he is very attracted to two of the other women on the show, but he continues to fuck the heroine even after he tells her he has feelings for the others. That's horribly unfair to the other women on the show, and it makes the hero a douche-bag and the heroine a doormat.The big drama that broke them up was that she kissed another guy on a reality tv show that they were both a part of. After they watch the episode with the kiss in front of his family, h [...]

I’ve read a lot of reality TV shows book, in fact, and it’s hard to not actually compare. This book, however, had just come [...]

      I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I don't watch reality dating shows. They make me cringe and the second hand embarrassment is too much for me to handle. But I do watch the Lifetime show Unreal, which is a scripted show about the behind the scenes drama on a reality dating show. So when I read the synopsis for this book, I immediately thought, "Yeah. I'm going to have to read this one." Leighton and Finn have a history, a slightly complicated, messy histo [...]

      I love it when a book starts off with some drama! From the beginning you could feel the tension between Leighton and Finn. You just know this is gonna be goooood!!! So here's a quick summary of the story. Leighton Aldridge wasn't looking for love or a soulmate when she signed up to be on the reality tv show Mr. Right. But, eventually she crossed paths with Finn Wyatt and that's exactly what happened. The very show that brought them together, would also be their undoing. She broke his heart month [...]

      Leighton Aldridge loves the spotlight and attention of the cameras. Being on reality t,v, suits her, even though the shows were about romance. For Leighton, she wasn't looking for love, but she could play the part and yet true love still found her in the form of Finn Wyatt. What they had was real, but it crashed and burned in the public limelight, leaving Finn crushed and heartbroken. Now, Finn's the main character is being vied for by 25 eligible females, including Leighton, on the new season o [...]

      Thank you so much Give Me Books Promotions for sending me an ARC of this book!! I'm very honored and grateful!! :)5 Reality has never been more complicated Stars!!I've only ever watched a few episodes of the Bachelor and i was sort of familiar with that whole TV world but this book made me want to binge watch some seasons. It was heartbreaking, shocking, and quite beautiful. It was a different take on how one falls in love but i greatly admire that and it felt refreshing to read. Ms.Aarons takes [...]

      I love the idea of this novel. Falling in love on reality TV and all the antics that go with it plus I really love the cover of the story so I dove right in.Leighton was a great lead. She went after what she wanted and didn't let people's judgments get to her. Resilience is always a great quality to have and a character. She played it cool because she was scared (IMO). Everyone makes mistakes, and I loved seeing her try to rectify hers. Finn was just perfect. The perfect mix or jerk and sweet. I [...]

      4 STARSI’ll start by saying that I’m not a fan of reality TV. I’m not preaching or looking down on those that do, I just don’t get the allure. I find it’s so far from reality that I just can’t be bothered. So, having this book based on a reality TV show à la the Bachelor/Bachelorette, I wasn't sure if it would work for me. But I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed Carrie’s debut novel Red Card and her follow up novel, didn’t disappoint.Leighton Aldridge and Finn Wyatt fir [...]

      If I had to describe this book in a couple of words, it'd be angsty and hot. It's such a wonderful story. This second chance romance had me hooked and I loved it!I wasn't expecting this book to have significant emotional depth, but I was pleasantly surprised when it did. There were moments where I could feel my chest ache as I read. I will even admit to crying while I was reading this book. I couldn't help myself and I don't think you will be able to stop yourself either. Leighton stole the show [...]

      Just okayI have read and really enjoyed some of Carrie Aaron's other books, but just didn't like this one as much. The writing was fine, but the male lead was kinda a jerk and I couldn't figure out why the female lead wanted him back. It didn't seem like they much chemistry, either. Don't get me wrong, it was still okay, just not her best.

      ***4.5 Hearts Kissed by Reality is the first book I have read by Carrie and I know it won't be my last. As soon as I read the synopsis along with the beautiful cover, I knew I had to read it! I love reality shows. I know it's full of drama, and yes, can be scripted but it's one of my guilty pleasures. Actually, I don't feel guilty about it. I have even gone to DASH boutique.

      4.5 Poison Apples I have to admitI don't see the appeal of reality tv shows, especially of the dating variety. The idea that a couple can find lasting love in a situation that is scripted, fueled by ratings, and high on drama and attention whore antics is preposterous. Add in the fact that the producers want the show to go in a certain way, staging perhaps even a certain outcome and the feasibility of anyone being truly honest and genuine seems farfetched. But Carrie Aarons makes me want to beli [...]

      A Solid Four StarsOnce bitten twice shy or so the saying goes, but is this the adage that Finn is going to adhere to or will he look past their past and give Leighton the opportunity to prove how much she regrets the mistake she made.Leighton had her shot with Finn when they fell in love following their appearance on Mr Right, the reality dating show which is just all shades of wrong in my opinion, but I digress. Their relationship really looked like the real deal and they eventually moved to a [...]

      This is my confession: I've never watched The Bachelor/Bachelorette or any other "pick a husband/wife" shows on tv. The concept alway sounded ludicrous to me 1) how can two people fall in love with the whole world watching and judging and 2) My jealous heart couldn't take watching someone date 20 women at a time while falling in love with one of them and but having to continue "dating" the rest the whole time. I'm a enough of a celebrity news follower to know that there have been a couple of suc [...]

I love seeing what goes on the background, and getting an insight into what really happens once the cameras stop rolling and the film crew goes home for the night.Leighton and Finn have history, having previously met on a season of Mr Right, and agreeing to spend the rest of their lives tog [...]

      Leighton Aldridge has signed on the do the show Mr. Right for one reason and that is to win back the man she is madly in love with, Finn Wyatt. Only problem is he can't stand to be in the same room as her. Not after he got his heart broken and was humiliated by Leighton on TV for the world to see. When Leighton first got into the world of reality TV she wasn't looking for love, she was looking for fame and a good time. But when she met and feel in love with Finn, on national TV, her wants went f [...]

      Reality dating shows were some of my favorite guilty pleasures back in the day when I had time to watch TV. I grabbed this book based on that premise alone—I mean, if I loved actual reality dating shows, I was bound to love a book about them too, right?RIGHT.Only, I don’t really think this counts as a guilty pleasure. In fact, I think the only thing it has in common with its subject is that it’s completely, totally, deliciously addictive. Beyond that, it’s heartfelt and emotional. It’s [...]

      Completely Addicting!I know so many people who are completely addicted to reality tv, especially the dating shows. While I've never been a fan, I cannot get enough of reality dating shows in books! This one is especially exciting! There's so much drama and angst!Ok so in Kissed by Reality the big dating show is called Mr. Right or Mrs. Right, basically what you would compare to The Bachelor/Bachelorette. So you have two previous contestants who weren't picked during their seasons, Leighton and F [...]
