Series: Not Like The Movies (Book 1)
"I look into his blue eyes and there's so much understanding there. He's clarity in the chaos of my world. And for the first time in a long time, I feel like confiding how I feel. What's really going on inside my head. "I just feel ... lost. Like I've always been Madison, Mike's girlfriend. Or Madison, who's working her way up the rungs on the fashion magazine ladder. Now, I'm Madison, no fixed address. I'm...lost."
Madison, the main character, I found almost whiny. I know it sucks when life throws us curve balls and things don't happen the way we expect. I guess I just didn't like how she dealt with it. I mean, she wasn't all that happy to begin with. She was content and felt safe but not happy. There is a difference.
Tate, is and isn't your typical movie star. He has secrets, a craptastic past and is trying to make things better for his pregnant sister. I liked him. I was proud of him for wanting to give his future nephew a good life. I didn't really agree with his methods but I understood why he was doing things the way he was.
All in all, the story was good. I just couldn't relate to these characters for some reason. I usually love Lauren K. McKellar's work, this one just didn't do it for me.
I recommend giving Fame, a try. Just because I didn't love it, doesn't mean you won't. It can also be read as a standalone. No cliffhangers.
