Return to a world of secrets, scandal, and temptation. Read the second novel in the sizzling Reckless and Real series from NYT bestselling author Lexi Ryan...

**Something Real is book 2 of the Reckless and Real series and intended to be read after book 1, Something Reckless. This book concludes Liz and Sam’s story.**

After everything blew up on Christmas, Liz walked away from me, and I let her. She said she needed space and a chance to pursue her dreams. But we both knew she was running from the mess she made. 

Now the political campaign she used as an excuse to leave is bringing us back together and I’m proving to her what she really needs—not just the hot nights, greedy hands, and undeniable physical chemistry. What she really needs is something real. 

What she really needs…is me.

The Reckless and Real Series Includes:
SOMETHING RECKLESS (includes the prequel novella SOMETHING WILD)
SOMETHING REAL (Liz and Sam’s story concludes)


  • Massive Trainwreck of a couple

    By Natalieemm
    If there’s anything to say about this series of works it’s that it’s like a car wreck... you want to look away but you just can’t. These characters are an absolute trainwreck and have done irreparable damage to my frayed nerves. But I mean that in the best way possible. I loved this story and I love this author.
  • Sam & Liz

    I never write reviews but I couldn't resist after finishing this. I was very sad that this series has come to an end. Lexi does an amazing job at gravitating her audience with this series. I spent my days at work thinking about what would happen next. Using all my few free time to catch up on chapters. I just couldn't stop reading! Throughout the series you wonder if Sam and Liz can survive every obstacle that's thrown at them. But in the end love wins. It just gives me hope that love will always win. I would have loved another book introducing Lilly into the equation. She was such a big part of the secrets that I wish I could know more on that side of things. Still an amazing book and series nonetheless.❤️❤️❤️

    This will have your head spinning in a good way! So many twists and turns you'll never see it coming! Great story and wonderful conclusion to Sam and Liz's love story. This book will keep you on your toes and you'll be cheering Sam and Liz on while cursing them at the same time. Amazing! Can't wait to read about other characters in this series!
  • Something Real and so much more….

    I just finished reading Something Real by Lexi Ryan and my first impression of the book was WOW, how does she do it? When I finished Something Reckless I was so bummed because I just didn’t think I could wait until March to read the rest of Sam and Liz’s story. Let me tell you it was well worth the wait. Lexi Ryan’s books snatch you up on the first page and don’t let go until you finish the book. Then all you can do is wait for the next one to come out. She captures your interest and the next thing you know you are living the story she is telling. Sam and Liz love each other but have more struggles than a normal couple could possibly handle and the way Miss Ryan tells their story is so compelling that it makes you read through meals, not take phone calls or even socialize because you can’t stop reading the story and need to find out what happens to them. On a scale of 1 to10 this book is a 100!
  • Secrets are being leaked left and right. Will they ever be able to be together? - 5++++ stars

    By janice1231
    This is the final book in the story of Liz and Sam. It has been five months since Liz found out the truth about River and Sam pushed her away. Liz has left New Hope to work on Governor Guy's campaign. Both Liz and Sam are miserable apart, but it doesn't look like they can make things work. Connor shows up at Sam's house to let him know that trouble has hit the fan. Someone has released a sex tape of Sam and a red haired woman. Sam knows that it is not a recent tap, but it has been made to look like it. How did this get leaked and what are they hoping to gain from it? Liz gets thrown back into Sam's life and they just can't seem to stay away from each other. However, Liz still does NOT want to be "the other woman" for anyone. They keep going back to what they know. They were made to be together, but there are forces that are trying to keep them apart. I had a feeling that I knew who released the sex tape, but learning the truth about who released it and why was painful in a way. How certain things can look one way to one person and something totally different to someone else. You don't want to miss this final book in Sam and Liz's story, but Lexi has more stories to tell about the people in New Hope. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**

    Ooh lalalalala! These people of New Hope have intertwined themselves in me. It's such a great series! This time it was Sam and Liz that nudged themselves in from the beginning with Something Wild! Something Real was the ending of Sam and Liz and I don't think my heart could have taken too much more! I just could not stop reading. I had to get to the end to find out if the two of them ever got their head on straight and figure it out!! I love these books and Lexi Ryan's writing is the best!
