    Very well written and edited stand alone story with no cliffhanger.This is a light, humorous story about two stubborn, independent, damaged people who are trying their hardest to tell themselves they want to lead solitary lives, while quietly weaving each other into the fabric of their lives The female lead is smart and fiercely self sufficient, her neighbor a protective alpha male.I wish the story had been longer, but what s here is very well done.Recommended for fans of hunky alpha males, dog rescue, and HEA.

    I ve been binge reading Abbie Zanders books, yes, she s that good The Realist is a contemporary romance about two people that want to live away from everyone else How funny that they end up living close enough to share a driveway This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time After an accident put Clarissa in the hospital and having a boyfriend that never had anything positive to say about her, she decided to claim her inheritance and move into her late uncle s house Travis didn t want to be friends with his new neighbor, but he couldn t stop doing things for her, especially when the payback we homemade goodies left on his porch Travis and Clarissa s story is packed with humor, drama and sizzle Kudos to Ms Zanders on the humor in this book, I confess to laughing out loud This is a complete book, not a cliff hanger.

    Liked the H and h characters but HATED the ow I HATED that the h could feel the sexual tension between the H and ow Not cool Also HATEd that the H went to the ow even after he wanted the h He didn t go through with it but still wrong wrong wrong I also HATED that He never officially broke it off with the other woman He just stopped going to her So in her mind they could have picked up at any time I m taking a break from this author

    It s been a very long time since I ve read The Realist but it dawned on me that I ve read it so many times that it was deserving of my time and review The Realist has some of the best of Abbie Zanders preferred themes We have the heroine, Clarissa An island unto herself, Clarissa exemplifies a strong, independent woman, who can hold her own Indeed, Clarissa lives out in the country, reliant upon herself and nature, when Travis comes into the picture.Travis is a well crafted hero and the quintessential archetype for Abbie Zanders love interest all Man Competent, sparse with words and with a healthy libido, we are beyond thrilled to read and reread the banter between the two of them, spoken or implied He s got an appealing cocktail of being antisocial, good natured and slightly snarky, endearing him to the readers throughout.This is an easy, enjoyable read, with very few nits that distracted from the story My least favorite parts were their macabre date, her oddball family history and ex lover, none of which really added to the story much and were unnecessary from my standpoint My favorite parts were the rest of it It all worked really well and was well written.Among my favorite of Abbie Zanders books.

    Great quick, fun read The dual POV worked especially well in this novel Each character tells their own side of the story as if they were speaking directly to the reader It s much a storytelling than internal dialogue and works very well The Realist is a very funny book without every being too cutesy or trying too hard to be funny, as found in some novels I have waay highlighted passages and bookmarks in this 100 page novel than in big deal books three times its length I mean, who can resist a line like this one I didn t just fall off of the abstinence wagon I jumped off wearing a sequin studded thong and waving sparklers in the air Honestly, who could resist I recommend The Realist highly and am confident that I ll enjoy rereading it anytime I need a quick pick me up of a book.

    Loved itI really enjoyed this story Clarissa was so different compared with so many of the main characters I have read before She was standoffish not only to Travis but to everyone who tried to make contact with her it was just that Travis in his own standoffish way understood her as she did him Oddly enough it was through their one worded encounters with one another and their secret lust for each other a relationship started to reluctantly bud between them It was a stray dog that finally got them together With so many hurts and scares in both their past it is a wonder they were able to muddle through it all but it was glorious reading how they tried.

    Clarissa Sullivan, The Realist and Travis Maxwell both came to their mountain homes to escape a previous bad relationship and the blows life has dealt to them They help each other with very little communication until Ripper a stray dog is hit by a car.Rissa and Travis start talking and soon romance develops and the two find a happy ending up on their mountain together It is a nice love story with a happy ending with a hot alpha guy and a girl that learns to appreciate him.I want to thank Abbie Zanders, author and Goodreads First Reads Books for the copy of The Realist that my mom won and shared with me.

    Another wonderful read from author Abbie Zanders Loved the characters of Travis and Clarissa Watching them throughout the story gain each others trust over time and warm up to one another and eventually lean on and count on one another Both came to this place broken and wounded But in the end, found each others soul mate I even fell in love with Clarissa s stray , Ripper, who she took in Even the dog helped repair the hearts of both Clarissa and Travis In the end they became a family and the path to get there warms your heart and gives you faith that everyone can be saved and loved.

    I received this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.Clarissa and Travis each have their own reasons for living in seclusion up on the mountain, but events gradually force them closer I really enjoyed the storyline, the characters, and the somewhat short length of the book However, there were a couple plot gapsparts of the characters histories that were mentioned earlier in the book and never mentioned later on Small spoilerTravis never shares with Rissa where his relationship issues stem from.
