Famous in Love – Rebecca Serle

Synopsis

The romantic story of a girl who gets plucked from obscurity to star in the next major feature film franchise based on a book and the ensuing love triangles she gets entangled in on—-and off screen.

Meet Paige Townsen, Rainer Devon, and Jordan Wilder…

When Paige Townsen, a young unknown, gets cast 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 crowded movie set on the shores of Maui, and is spending quality time with her co-star 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 gets even crazier.

In this coming-of-age romance inspired by the kind of celeb hookups that get clever nicknames and a million page views, Paige must figure out who she is – and who she wants – while the whole world watches.

Review

I flew through this one in one sitting. This book was almost tragic. It may look like a sweet, vanilla-fluffy story about fame, but don’t be fooled. I just wanted the people who were so in love—so passionate—to be happy. The sad part is that they WERE happy with their decisions. I am always annoyed when people give up on love because it’s “for the best.” You can’t make others happy and leave yourself miserable!

The opening was confusing at first, but it all made sense at the end. I’m curious to see the ramifications of Paige’s choice. This story was largely centred around three people. There were a couple details about the others, but it was very “star-focused.” I guess for them, that’s what life has become. I still want to know more about the others though, like Cassandra and Jake! Or Wyatt!
