Overview

How Sweet it is?

Jane Roberts was the average girl next door until she and her best friend, Scarlett Harp, landed their own reality show, L.A. Candy. Now the girls have an all-access pass to Hollywood's hottest everything. But there's more to life on camera than just parties and shopping. . . .

When racy photos of Jane are leaked to the press, she finds herself at the center of a tabloid scandal. She turns to her co-star Madison Parker for help, unaware that Madison is scheming behind the scenes. She might be Jane's shoulder to cry on, but does Madison really have Jane's back?

Scarlett's working on a scandal of her own. She's fallen for someone who's strictly off-limits�which means Scarlett has a big secret to keep . . . from the L.A. Candy cameras, the paparazzi staking out her apartment, even from her best friend.

Of course, nothing stays secret for long for the stars of the newest hit TV series, and all this drama couldn't be better for ratings. But can Jane survive another season in the spotlight?

In television star Lauren Conrad's dishy, entertaining novel about young Hollywood, the lies are only as sweet as the people tell-ing them.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jane Van Wiemokly
Jane Roberts continues her reality television show adventures in this second of three planned books in the L.A. Candy series. This story concentrates on Jane's relationships—with friends, nonfriends, and boyfriends. She can't figure out how the local gossip magazine is supplied with rumors about her. She stays in an unhealthy relationship with bad boy Jesse, who drinks and is abusive. She's too naive, or unaware, that new "friend" Madison is the source of the rumors about her. In the end, Jane learns who her true best friend is, but she is still ambivalent about her dating judgment . . . as well she should be. She is portrayed as shallow, trusts a new friend over one she's known for most of her life, and can't see what's right in front of her. She and most of the characters project superficial values, such as hooking up after meeting someone once and underage drinking. Most of the characters are not sympathetic—they throw over friends as if they were flapjacks yet can't understand why they're not liked. Suspicion of others, whether about their professional or personal life, seems to be an overriding factor. Trite characters in trite plots, no matter how up to date they are with their texting and OMGs, are still unoriginal and not worth our caring. All this could be overlooked if the book were better written. Despite this, it will be sure to be popular with similar reality show watchers, fans of ex-Hills star Conrad, and readers who extol celebrity even if undeserved. Reviewer: Jane Van Wiemokly
