Alejandro was a rapper in Cuba, but now lived in Miami. He was on his way to a meeting in NYC, but his limo driver hit an Amish woman named Amanda. This book was very well written. it kept you interested from the first page to the last. Alejandro and Amanda came from two separate worlds but managed a closeness anyways. It was so great to read as they overcame all the twists and turns of the plot. The characters were excellent, as was the story and overall plot. I highly recommend it. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**
Plain Fame by Sarah Price is the first book in the Plain Fame series. Amanda Beiler (she is twenty) is returning home to Lititz, Pennsylvania from Ohio and decided to explore New York City a little bit. She is crossing the street to purchase some sunglasses (jaywalking) when she is hit by Alejandro Diaz’ limousine. Alejandro is a famous singer (from Cuba), has a bad boy image, and is known as Viper. He knows that he cannot just wait in the limo (bad for image). He gets out and checks on the young lady. Alejandro stays with her until she is transported to the hospital. He finds out that she is Amish (he looks up their culture). He visits her in the hospital and spends time getting to know her. There is an instant connection between the two of them. When Amanda is ready to go home, Alejandro personally escorts her home. He then spends some time on the farm until he is spotted by fans while shopping in a local town. Alejandro knows that it is time to leave before the media descends (though he dislikes leaving Amanda). Unfortunately, the media has taken a shine to Amanda (she has become a celebrity). They camp out at her family farm and the local town. This affects the whole community and makes it difficult for the whole Amish community. The Bishop states that Amanda has to go away. Amanda decides to take her future into her own hands. I enjoyed reading Plain Fame. It is nicely written and easy to read (has a good flow). I liked the characters in the book, though, I did find Amanda to be extremely naïve. Can someone who is twenty years old and Amish really be as naïve as a regular (English) six year old? There are some different settings in the book. It takes us from New York to Pennsylvania to Los Angeles. I give Plain Fame 4 out 5 stars. The book leaves us wondering what will happen to Amanda and we have to wait to find out until the next book. I received a complimentary copy of Plain Fame from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed this first book so much. The developing relationship between Amanda and Alejandro keeps you reading right along, I really didn't want the book to end! She is so innocent and true, and he is from the entertainment world which is nothing like normal life. It is interesting to see how Alejandro shows bits and pieces of his life to Amanda, and to also watch their love grow! Can't wait for the next book !
