I will always read a Kasie book. I don’t even read the synopsis. I liked Lacey and Donovan. They’re both driven and maybe a little stubborn. Their banter was playful and fun. The on set characters were interesting and I especially enjoyed seeing Abby and Cooper again. Plot wise, it was okay. It was slow and quick moving at the same time. Because Lacey’s day is nearly the same every day, it felt a bit repetitive at parts. The sabotage thread didn’t really work for me. I did like the idea of it and was second guessing everyone’s intentions, but the reveal and reasoning fell flat. Overall, it was another cute and fluffy book. I would have liked a little more from the epilogue, but I might be greedy. **Huge thanks to Harper Teen for providing the arc free of charge**

Fame, Fate and the First Kiss by Kasie West is a fast-paced, lighthearted Young Adult book that delivers everything from laughter, young love, and a bit of mischief thrown in to keep you guessing. Although this book in the second in the series they can be read as a standalone book. This is my first read by Kasie West, and now I am asking myself why I haven't read any of her books before this since I do have a bunch on my to-read shelf. This book was well written, with very engaging characters. Ms. West does a great job capturing the essence of what it's like to be a teenager in an adult world. Lacey is a seventeen-year-old actor, who has landed her dream movie role, and her leading man just happens to be Grant James, who is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood. But, things are not all that easy. Lacey has a lot to deal with, the demanding work schedule of the movie, passing her senior year, and an overprotective dad that is not thrilled with his daughters choice of professions. Her dad hires an uptight, inflexible tutor to help Lacey focus and keep up with her school work. Meet Donavan, a cute if a somewhat geeky high school senior who writes for the local high school newspaper. I liked that there was some push and pull between Lacey and Donavan, no instant-love for these two. The story had a bit of mystery to it which I liked, but don't want to say too much and give it away. Ms. West does an excellent job of keeping the language and romance within the YA boundaries. I would feel comfortable recommending this book to kids sixteen and older. Overall, I enjoyed this book very much. If you are looking for an upbeat super sweet book with a tad of angst, that will have you smiling throughout, look no further, you have found your next book. ***I kindly received a DRC of this book by way of Edelweiss/publisher/author.
