After several years as a blogger, I'm returning to writing fiction, but with a twist: my first indie book is called "Fame, Love and other Lessons" and it's in the New Adult genre. Which is basically contemporary romance, except with younger heroines.
on Feb. 28, 2013 :
Fame, Love and other Lessons is the story of a simple girl whose life changes from night to morning when her boyfriend is picked to play in the NBA and she is discovered as a model. Immerse in a world of luxury, parties, paparazzies and appearances, Jamie is trying to become and adult woman and dealing with love.
The love story moves way to fast, it's believable at some points but there's so much happening between lines and paragraph. There is a lot that is not being told and it gives you a sense that something is missing.
Despite being sweet and fun, Jamie is not a very likeable character, at least for me. She has this tendency to do the first thing that comes to her mind but she's not ready to deal with the consequences of her actions. She seems so bold but is very volatile.
Chase is this big guy, hot and with a bad reputation. But when Jamie comes into picture he decides to change. Let's be honest, he didn't resist much; he goes after her and with his mind set about what he wants. He is very sweet, honest, and lovely but is also a man so he has a hard time leaving his pride aside.
The world of fame is well portrayed, it's easy to imagine the craziness they live in, with everyone talking about what they do and say. Is easy to feel the doubt and insecurity she has because all the women throwing themselves to her boyfriend and saying he is cheating on her.
The second guy, Sean, is supposed to be this hot, sexy, Irish, band member, but he is a terrible person. He is so self-confident that is annoying. However, he is a good for the story and adds the conflict it needs.
Overall, this book is a nice love story with a lot of hot scenes (well written and entertaining) fast to read and with simple language.
