-- The title of Jessica Lavé’s new book, Realistically Yours, asks you to take it at face value: what you see is what you get. What really distinguishes this story from other romance novels is its resonance with modern society. Reflections of the economic situation, the constant pervasive force of technology, and the use of prescription medication as a “cure-all”
are just a few of the factors that impact the main character’s journey.
Readers who have outgrown the fairy tale romance can expect something different from Realistically Yours: the protagonist, Christina Rycard, is not the damsel in distress, and the men in her life are not all white knights. Christina’s story is one of grief, survival, and maturity: knowing when to say yes when the right opportunity comes along, whether in life, love, or a career is one of the most difficult things to learn. It is only when she learns to overcome the pain and fear of her past that she can finally allow herself to choose the right guy when he does in fact come along.
Realistically Yours is the author’s first published novel, and is available now through CreateSpace and Amazon, priced at $9.27. Order your copy of Realistically Yours from the author’s e-store at www.CreateSpace.com/
