First-time novelist Eric E. Pete leads you on a wild ride through the fast-paced lives of fascinating singles in his novel Real for Me.

The story is told alternately through the eyes of Glover (a beautiful, charming, and confident woman) and Maxwell (a recent arrival to the coast searching for something better), and feautres an ensemble cast of witty and memorable characters.

Glover has everything going for her-looks, brains, friends, and a successful fiance' who comes from "old money"-but is grappling with her increasingly serious relationship with him. Meanwhile, Maxwell is struggling to get out of a personal and professional rut. Glover and Max's lives are on separate courses until fate intervenes in the form of an employment application and the roller coaster ride begins!

In a contemporary and realistic style familiar to most, the story Real for Me takes place in Los Angeles and its environs and paints an intriguing and often humorous tale of friendship, honor, loyalty, and love from the African-American perspective.

  • Uncannily predictable at times, but I will rate this book higher because it was the author's first effort. Real for Me took about two weeks for me to finish, but I'm glad I did for I'd have missed out on a treat. You've got to hand it to Glover for making poor decisions from the start in her unsure state of mind...but I knew from the beginning that Lionel wasn't all he seemed. I didn't trust Mona either. It was like you could read between the lines with Pete's characters. One thing I will say is it was refreshing to read about "Everyday Joes" like Max and Smitty. Too often authors create their characters over-confident, desirable, rich and successful. I could easily relate to Max and Smitty. We saw the struggles they went through and the work they put in to get what they wanted and that was real.

  • Single, attractive, and living in Los Angeles are the three elements that make up Eric Pete's first novel "Real for Me." Maxwell Guillory, also known as Max, has moved to Los Angeles from Lake Charles, Louisiana as is working at Denny's until he finds a "real" job. He and his running buddy Wallace "Smitty" Lewis use their days off from their respective jobs to find new jobs that will take them further. It is during this job search that Max meets Glover McDaniel.
    Glover is a beautiful, independent, newly engaged woman who works at the California Employment Development Office. She is engaged to Lionel Dunning, the son of a prominent attorney. Although Glover should be overjoyed, she is very apprehensive about her upcoming wedding and shares her joy and her pain with her two best friends, Mona and Charmaine. Mona and Glover went to college together and they both met Charmaine when they began working together.
    Glover and Maxwell's paths may have never crossed if he had not come into the employment office, but from the moment they meet they are completely enraptured with one another.
    Real for Me is a great book, it takes you through the trials and tribulations of the relationship of Glover and Maxwell and the people around them. There is tragedy, comedy, and pain all wrapped up in this debut novel. On the RAW scale this book is a 4.

  • Glover should be on cloud nine. She's beautiful, intelligent, has great friends, and is engaged to a sexy, successful brother that tends to her needs but she feels empty, and wonders if her relationship is just following logical steps...and not the steps that her heart feels need to be made. When she meets Maxwell, a brother new to California, who is looking for something better in his life, Glover finds herself confused all the more as she is forced to look into herself to see what she truly wants, what will make her happy.
    Real for Me is a great debut novel by Eric Pete. I read the book in one sitting, and found myself totally engaged with the characters and wrapped up in the plotline. The dialogue was real and sharp, and Pete did a great job in fleshing out the main characters and giving them individual voices and quirks. I really enjoyed this novel and especially the characters (Glover's best friends are a treat), and would definitely recommend this novel.....

  • This was a good story !! One where the sistah this time was playing the yo yo love game . She was torn between her heart's love and a committed relationship with her long time boy friend .
    After years of dating Lionel, he proposes. Then one day Max walks in on her job and it was a blur. Was it the wealth and money that was holding Glover to Lionel. Clearly her heart belonged to someelse . What do you think she did ? I could hardly wait to see what was going to happen ! I will say this ,there was a big secret revealed during the end that changed things . This as I stated was a good read and I look forward to Eric's next book !

  • Real for Me is a delightful novel the promises twist and turns until the end. Eric E. Pete offers some insight on divine intervention. The characters are very realistic. I could see people in my life in everyone. The reader is able to get into the minds of all the scenes as though you were there. I found myself screaming as though they would hear me! I recommend this to those people that love a good soap opera drama.

  • Contrary to the editorial reviews of this novel. I ejoyed this novel quite a bit. I definitely found myself wondering what was going to happen in the end. It did have a few twist to it that made it all the more fun to read. Definitely give it a try. I also recommend his second novel someone's in the kitchen also very enjoyable.

  • If you are looking for a good read that takes you into a REAL world of people, then this is IT! While reading this book, I felt like I was watching a story of a group of people that I knew. All the characters had REAL hearts, REAL souls, and were REAL. Is that why it is titled, "Real for Me"? I felt like I was the fly on the wall and you know what that's like? It's like getting into someones head without their permission. You truly understood each character and where they were coming from. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to get a laugh, a cry, and a WHAT!!!!!???????... It had some twists and turns which made it totally unpredictable. It's a thumbs up in my book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  • In the realm of contemporary fiction, "Real For Me" is 'As Good As It Gets'. Eric Pete tells a story that transcends race, gender and economic status and speaks to what we all desire: To love and be loved. The author's writing style transports you from your living room to Los Angelos where you become involved in the lives of Glover and Max. The main characters, as well as the ensemble of supporting characters are so well written that you visualize them and begin to anticipate what they will do next! This book has everything: love, friendship, loyalty and a "jaw-dropping" surprise ending!
