    just "ok"

    Scotty and Charley find romance in the Highlands when a couple of cute guys in kilts look their way. How will Seth and Jeremy react when they realize the ladies who were interested in them have captured the hearts of a young bagpiper and a Scottish actor? Meanwhile, as Scotty and her dad look for answers to their questions about faith, they also look for Scotty's mom. The search takes them deep into mob territory, where someone will go to any length to keep the past a secret.Will Scotty lose everything that's become important to her? from Goodreads.

    As much as I hate to say it, this book was only ok. I feel like Scotty's changed a lot, and I really dislike her relationship with Seth. It's not her place to tell him what to do, and she seemed overly harsh with him.

    Her relationship with Angus was a little bit weird as well. It moved way to fast for me. Even though she kept saying that she still had feeling for Seth, her relationship with Angus didn't reflect that. I love that her family is settling down more and becoming a true family.

    Fingers crossed that they'll find her mother in the next book!

    Note: I received this book free of charge from NavPress Publishers. I was not required to write a favorable review, only an honest one.

    Romancing Hollywood Nobody

    Scotty's Journey through life is pretty amazing. She finally realizes what life is and what it is about. This third installment of the Hollywood Nobody is my favorite one. I'm in the process of reading the fourth book and I'm hoping it's as good as the third one. I like how I can relate to some of the stuff that Scotty is going through. The series allows you to grow with Scotty as she's in her teens and turns into a young adult. When I was reading the book it was hard for me to put down. I was always wanting to know what was going to happen next.

    I thought this book was a great book and I would recommend it to everybody. The Hollywood Nobody series is really great. Even if you don't like reading I think you should read this book. I'm not a big fan of reading but I loved this book.

    Another great installment in an incredible series!

    About the book: <BR/><BR/>Life is gradually coming into focus for 16-year-old Scotty Dawn. Now that they've been reunited with her father, who was presumed killed by the mob, she and her grandmother can stop running. But the trio continues their nomad lifestyle, setting out in search of answers about faith, possible romance . . . and Scotty's mother. <BR/><BR/>My review: <BR/><BR/>This is an amazing third installment in an awesome series. I am so hooked on Scotty it's not even funny. I love her personality and the things she is learning. She's one of the best YA characters I've gotten to know because she is quirky and there is so much personality to her. Her innocence is pretty sweet, too. I've particularly enjoyed Romancing Hollywood Nobody because there this (duh) romance in the air for several key characters in the series. I don't want to spoil the fun, so I'm not saying any more. But this entire book was very enjoyable. I also loved the whole tension subplot with Scotty and "the Karissa", especially the part where Scotty deals with wanting to protect her friend Seth "Hottie" Haas. She learns a lot about letting go and allowing people to make their own choices and learn from their mistakes. It's a real growing book for Scotty and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    To blog or not to blog...

    Recently reunited with her dad, Scotty Dawn¿s life has changed for the better. Scotty, Charley, and Dad take the RV to Asheville, Texas where Charley is working for an impossible director. Star of the film, Scottish actor, Anthony Harris, makes the horrible job worthwhile when he rescues Charley from the director¿s wrath. Not only is Anthony a hero, he and Charley have been spending a lot of time together.<BR/><BR/>Charley isn¿t the only one finding romance. Scotty meets Angus, a young bagpiper whose family runs the campground the RV is parked at. Seth and Karissa are also back together, much to Scotty¿s chagrin. She blogs about Seth¿s bad choices on her blog, but a comment from a reader reminds her of the plank in her own eye.<BR/><BR/>When he hears about Charley¿s budding romance, Jeremy comes running with intentions of his own. Charley is forced to choose. Scotty¿s choice is made for her. Angus¿ family is falling apart, leaving little time for romance. Scotty spends her free time with her dad, brainstorming ways to find her missing mother. She can¿t seem to write on her blog. The reader was right. Making fun of Hollywood celebrities doesn¿t feel right anymore, especially when Seth¿s behavior is beyond reproach.<BR/><BR/>Lisa Samson has created a marvelous character in Scotty Dawn. She¿s funny, smart, and is turning into an amazing young woman who¿s delightful to spend time with. I can¿t wait for the fourth book.<BR/><BR/>Highly Recommended.

    Cute and Fabulous

    *sigh* i Romancing Hollywood Nobody /i definitely does live up to par with the other Hollywood Nobodies, and in a way it's better. You could read it alone, but I strongly suggest starting with [book: Hollywood Nobody] and then reading [book: Finding Hollywood Nobody] before [book: Romancing Hollywood Nobody]. In the previous books, [author: Lisa Samson] has told some pretty good lessons in between some fabulous teenage humor. Starting with Scotty as a barely teen and now having her at seventeen is fun to grow with her. This book does have some 'Ugh, what an idiot!' moments, but the best part to me, was about half way through, when I was like, 'Oh, Wow. That makes sense.' Really, it made me think of the times when you are sitting in church and all of the sudden what you are hearing in the sermon just clicks. That is what Lisa did with this story and it was so entertaining to boot! I got the book in my hands at 3:00pm and took a break when the hubby came home at 6:30, but otherwise read almost straight through until I finished a little before 9:00pm. I think that is what you would call a 'page turner' and one that I could just 'not put down.' I definitely recommend Hollywood Nobody. Even boys will enjoy and benefit from the story. There is no age limit on Hollywood Nobody, it's for all who need a comfy faintly romantic read.
