Received paperback for an honest review
She fell in love with him in the books - now she has the chance to star opposite him in the film . . .
Paige doesn't think she's particularly special, but after getting the starring role in a massive film adaptation of the bestselling Locked trilogy, the rest of the world would disagree. Now she's thrown into the spotlight, and into a world of gossip, rumour and deceit. The only people who know what she's going through are her two male co-stars, and they can't stand the sight of each other. Paige knows it's a mistake to fall in love on the set of a movie, but days of on-screen romance and intensity start to change her mind. The question is, can she keep what happens behind the scenes a secret when the world is watching her every move?
Famous in love is about a girl named Paige who stars in a movie and all the stuff that comes with it. Going from a normal girl to this girl thus into the spotlight. I think Rebecca Serle really showed the betrayal of what its really like to be in the spotlight. She showed what we don't see, she showed us the faces and feelings behind the stars.
There was romance in Famous in love but it wasn't a straight forward boy meets girl, girl falls in love. It wasn't even your typical love triangle. I think this is what I struggled with though out Famous In Love as I love a romance and always want it to be as uncomplicated as possible.
I did also feel that I at times struggled with the female protagonists voice and it really made me struggle to get though parts of the story.
Overall even with the issues I had with the book I still ended up enjoying it. I don't think the book will be for everyone and I definitely have mixed feelings about the book but I will be picking up the next book in the series which go to show I had to like it enough to pick the next one up!
