My review of Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle

About the book:

"A must-read for anyone curious about life and love behind the scenes."--Bella Thorne, actor and author of Autumn Falls

When Paige Townsen gets plucked from high school obscurity to star in the movie adaptation of a blockbuster book series, her life changes practically overnight. Within a month, Paige has traded the quiet streets of her hometown for a bustling film set on the shores of Maui, and she is spending quality time with her costar Rainer Devon, one of People's Sexiest Men Alive. But when troubled star Jordan Wilder lands the role of the other point in the movie's famous love triangle, Paige's crazy new life begins to resemble her character's.

In this exciting tale of romance and drama, both on-and off screen, Paige must adjust to a crazy new life without the daily support of her friends and family, while figuring out who she is--and who she wants--as the whole world watches.
My review:

I enjoyed this book. I only knew about it because I discovered the television show first. While the story is well told and fairly captivating, it doesn't match the show in several pretty significant ways.  I will leave that to the reader to discover should they choose to contrast and compare. Overall, I found myself pretty enthralled. The main character drew me in. I enjoyed experiencing newfound fame along with Paige.

At first I didn't know whether I would stick with the story since I discovered that the setting and other key points didn't match the show, but I hung in there. I am glad I did. Underlying the obvious love triangle is an element of human compassion that you feel as the story develops. I liked that there was something in this book that I could think about and ponder a bit. While entertaining, it also made me consider things in my life that I hadn't wanted to mull over. I can't wait to find out how this all ends.

Famous in Love was published by Poppy and release in March 2017. To get your own copy just click on the title and it will take you to Amazon. Enjoy!
