star lacks chemistry She s spending time with him to get to know him better to improve their chemistry situation Beginning of each chapter there will be a scene from the movie Lacey s in.Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss is very well written and fun to read I like that this book has the slow burning romance where the characters move on from disliking each other to liking each other I like the comparison between overprotective dad and dad who never showed up I like the romance in this story because it stays on the surface and not go far beyond kisses I like Lacey s quick come back to argument with her dad about being happy on the job everyday This book is not one to help me fall back to sleep when I wake up in the middle of the night, which is a good thing A good book is worth sacrificing sleep over I highly recommend everyone to read this book Pro fast paced, page turner, living on set, humor, romance, easy to read, dad issuesCon noneI rate it 5 stars Disclaimer Many

her previous novels, you know what to expect fun plot, likeable characters and a cute, swoon worthy romance Lacey s personality really appealed to me She was funny and charming, yet a little bit strange Donovan aka the love interest , on the other hand, was serious and collected As we know, opposites attract The plot went down the road of predictability towards the end, but I wasn t bothered by it It didn t ruin my reading experience Most people like to be surprised by the resolution of a mystery I dont need an ending to be very shocking, as long as the events prior to it are

actress, as she stars in a zombie film opposite a renowned actor, named Grant Since signing onto this film, she s had a rift with her father, who wants her to focus on school and not get caught up in show business Her father ends up hiring a tutor from the local school, who happens to be an entertainment a.k.a film reviewer for his school paper The book follows Lacey navigating her first time on a relatively large movie set while negative things begin to surface about her online.My main issue with this book was that nothing really happens Despite taking place on a movie set which should be exciting in itself nothing of substance happens at the beginning of the book I understand that this is a contemporary novel and there isn t much room for action, but we can t stay inside the main character s head the entire time After finishing this, I could probably summarise everything that happened in 5 minutes since nothing of note occurred The main complication of the entire novel revolved around negative press that Lacey was beginning to get online something that is the norm for young actresses with a social media presence anyway.I ve said this before, but I think I m too old for West s books Sometimes I wish she wouldn t add certain conflicts to her books without making it extremely obvious I know these aren t intended for someone my age in the first place, but it seems so blatant that I m sure a 12 year old could figure it out Not that a contemporary book needs to be shocking, but it s frustrating when something is right in front of your eyes and the main character doesn t acknowledge it When the reveal of who was sabotaging Lacey occurred, it left questions than answers It s obvious the author tried to transfer the suspicion to other characters, but these were never properly answered and left plot holes than solutions Also, a lot of her dilemmas could easily be fixed if she just changed the passcode to her phone.The romance was also lacking, which is surprising for a West novel I wasn t entirely convinced on Lacey s chemistry with Donavan and there weren t any sparks when they finally got together In fact, it felt rushed since it didn t happen until towards the ending, and then the question of what s in store for them isn t answered properly even in the epilogue Donavan also didn t have any qualities that stood out as different from any male character in the Young Adult genre He s got dark, brown hair, he s broody, he has daddy issues, and he has a specific type of girl he likes to date I know most of the female main characters in West s books have distinct interests and personalities, but I d like to see her branch out from the same old love story that she recycles in every novel.Overall, I m going to surmise that West books aren t written for my demographic any I like reading her novels for a quick, short reprieve between some other books that require a lot of thought, so I ll probably still pick up her books, I just won t be expecting anything of substance I d recommend this if you re a fan of her previous books because it definitely has that atmosphere, but I wouldn t expect anything outstandingly different to other contemporary novels on the market flag 10 likesLike see review View 2 comments Nov 30, 2018 Mlpmom Book Reviewer added it Shelves arc book read, kindle books Such a cute story Full review to come

Love, Life, and the List to enjoy this book I actually have read Love, Life, and the List, but had no idea while reading this book that it was the same Abby.The narrator of this book is 17 year old actress Lacey Barnes 1st person POV She is starring in her first movie But she is still a senior in high school So she has to juggle both things at the same time.This book was a quick read It was charming and I really enjoyed it.The story is about a girl who is living her dream of becoming an actress She gets a big break by being cast in a zombie movie Her leading man is already a big star.Lacey s overbearing father is a major part of this book As is the high school component of the story Both parts were very interesting.There is also a mystery in the book I thought that this added a lot to the overall story However, I was disappointed with the guilty party It made some sense, yet I really wish that the author had chosen someone different to be the bad guy.I really liked everything to do with the movie I wish that we had gotten to see even behind the scenes stuff I also really enjoyed her two co stars They added so much to the story And I loved her tutor.Is this book sort of predictable Yes But if you are looking for a cute, light read then this book is perfect.Thanks to edelweiss and HarperTeen for allowing me to read this book flag 9 likesLike see review Jun 26,

near the end was unnecessary It kinda felt like the author ran out of plot and couldn t come up with something better to fill the pages with I liked that the book was set, for the most part, on a movie set That was interesting I also liked that the main character was an actress and that she went for a regular guy instead of the movie star I do feel like the movie setting could have been
