Falling in love is hard. Falling in love on national television is impossible. Right?

Leighton Aldridge did not sign up to meet her soulmate. She signed up for the lights, camera and action. So when the Hollywood-native ends up with the wounded war veteran and a ring on her finger, it’s a surprise to everyone. What isn’t a surprise is the way she breaks Finn Wyatt’s heart, or the massively public breakup that follows. But a year later she’s back, ready for another round on the reality TV show that brought them together. She knows he was the real thing, and she’s ready to fight for him.

Finn is the new Mr. Right. The country’s favorite single guy, and the object of 25 women’s affections. But when his ex-fiance steps onto set and back into the limelight, he wishes he never agreed to another season. Leighton shattered his heart for the world to see, and he’s not ready to face that reality. Can Leighton convince him, and America, that she’s the one? Or will her future with Finn only consist of 15 more minutes of fame?

My Review
Disclosure: I received a copy from the author/publisher, in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my review in any shape or form.
I have had the privilege of reading every single book by Carrie Aarons and I have to say it is amazing to see her have grown as a writer. Kissed by reality is some of her best work to date.

I am a huge reality TV shows junkie though I do not watch dating shows, I do enjoy reality TV so the premise of the book was definitely intriguing. I have never read a book where the characters fall in love on reality TV so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect.

Kissed By Reality is kind of a behind the scenes to a reality TV dating show and second chance romance. You saw the good and the bad side to reality TV show. I really loved the dual point of view and how both Leighton and Finn told their story it helped understand both their views of the story.

Leighton was the girl chasing the spotlight and Finn was the veteran who wears the scars of his battles. Neither one thought they would actually fall in love on reality TV. I was hooked from page one and I couldn’t stop reading because Leighton and Finn’s story was so captivating and I needed to know what was going to happen. Even when I had to put the book down to handle mommy duties, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

I really felt like I was behind the scenes of the show. The amount of research Carrie must’ve put in to make the story so believable. Overall, I think this is my favorite book Carrie and I look forward to seeing more from her in the future.
