Famous in Love
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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?

I really liked ‘When You Were Mine’ by this author, but every book I have read since has been a huge disappointment. Including this one.

Paige was a little dull. All she cared about was movies and acting, and she bored me. Then, she finally gets cast in a major film production, doesn’t turn up to work on time, and is surprised when the press start taking her picture and spreading rumours. Surely she should have been expecting that?

The storyline in this bored me, and it got worse the further into the book we got. I didn’t really care about what was going on on the film set, and I just got bored!
The romance was in the form of a love triangle, square… triangle, er square? This girl had 3 guys who she was trying to juggle, and she got all upset when one of them started dating someone else. I mean, how many guys do you want at once? Surely one of them can get with someone else considering he’s not exclusively your boyfriend? I mean, ugh. Just make up your mind! Or at least be honest that you’re snogging more than one person at a time?

The ending to this didn’t feel like much of an ending, but I was just glad that it was over. I am tempted to read ‘Locked’ just to see what all the fuss is about, but if it’s anything like this, I’m just going to be bored. I don’t think I want to read the next book in this series.
Overall; dull,
6 out of 10.
