Release Blitz! Kicking Reality By Kat T. Masen


Everyone thinks they know who I am. I’m that reality TV star that fell in love with co-star Wesley Rich. But reality wasn’t my life. It was the life I lived in front of the cameras.
A life designed to entertain millions of watchers each Monday night.

It only took one night to relive my past, and one night to forget my future. With someone who had been there all along.


Soccer is my life—it’s in my blood.
I train hard, I play hard, and I win.  Nothing will break my focus.

I should have been able to avoid it, resist the temptation. But it’s there, playing every Monday night, an obsession I can’t seem to shake.

And I don’t know what was harder: hiding it from my best friend, or watching the woman I want live a life with someone else.

I have to be completely honest, more than once I started to put this one aside only to say well let me give it one more chapter and I am glad I keep doing the one more chapter thing because I hit a point where I didn’t want to put it down and ended up really liking it a lot.  This is a book that once it grips you, you want to know what happens.

 I liked the premise of the book.  A reality T.V. star whose life and relationship is on T.V. for all to see but they don’t see that it is that it isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.  Secrets, lies, betrayals and cheating are just a few of the things that aren’t shown.  What else isn’t shown is an enemies yet friends relationship become more and tested in more ways than one.  There were things that I liked and things that I didn’t but overall it worked.  I will say this if cheating is not something you can handle in your books you might want to skip this one.  Personally I don’t mind either way.  I think the one thing I wanted the most but didn’t get is for a couple of characters to actually be shown for the horrible people that they are.  I won’t say who but once you read it, you will know and hopefully agree.

Kicking Reality was a change from your typical sports romance or best friend’s sister romance, it at times was hard to get into but once it gets going it is one that I think most will enjoy.  Kicking Reality reminds us that what we see on the screen in some of our favorite reality T.V. shows is in fact not the real reality going on. 


“You honestly believe all that rubbish? Falling in love? They knew from the start? C’mon. It’s impossible,” I ramble to myself as Logan quietly stands at the edge. “You can spend a whole lifetime knowing someone and still feel unsure if the love is there. Two minutes in a bar and that person is your soulmate? Ludicrous.”

Logan turns his neck, body following until we’re facing each other. His presence radiates with superiority, just like when we were kids. I wasn’t afraid back then and I am not afraid now. His tough-guy persona doesn’t frighten me one bit.

“Hypocritical coming from someone engaged to a man that swore he fell in love with you the moment he saw you?” he questions, sarcasm lacing every word that left his mouth.

The shock of his words cripples my ability to respond with a witty comeback. We weren’t having a good ol’ laugh throwing worms in the bottom of Ash’s school bag anymore. And my initial reaction to his cruel words does nothing to calm the sea of emotions ravaging inside me. Logan Carrington was one of them. They all came from the same seed. The seed of men that felt entitled. Screw women, move on, fuck feelings and repeat.

“Knock, knock . . . anyone home?”

“You’re a jerk,” I mutter.
