In this romantic sequel to Famous in Love, new Hollywood "It Girl" Paige must navigate love with her co-stars, both on and off screen and all in the public eye. Lights, camera, love! After being plucked from obscurity, Hollywood's newest starlet, Paige Townsen, has a hit film to her name and Rainer Devon on her arm. But being half of the world's most famous couple comes with a price, and soon Paige finds herself dodging photographers; hiding her feelings for her other costar, Jordan Wilder; and navigating tabloid scandals that threaten to tear her and Rainer apart-and end her career as quickly as it began. Rebecca Serle's sequel to Famous in Love is filled with the kind of celebrity drama and swoon-worthy romance fit for the silver screen.
Famous In Love was a fun read that I very much enjoy, but Truly, Madly, Deeply doesn't really match enjoyment level of book one. I really enjoyed Famous In Love one of my issues when I read it was the ending and the fact that I thought it was a standalone. So I was so excited for this sequel, but alas it didn't match my expectations.
It felt like a filler book and when I think back not much really happened. We had a lot of melodrama and angst, but in terms of plot development and moving forward there was none of that. If you don't like love triangles this book is definitely not for you, but obviously you would know that from the first book. I like love triangles and even this one was getting on my nerves at times.
Paige, our main character was just so whiny and annoying and stupid. I liked her in the first book, but she was just kind of shallow and vain. I did enjoy her determination at times.
I do love the behind the scenes of hollywood plot and I will probably read the third book because I am invested in the characters and the story at this point. I just don't think this was as good as the first. I liked that we got some new characters introduced into the series. I didn't hate this book though. It was an okay book.
I do really like Rebecca Serle's writing style it is fun and really relatable for teens.
I will probably tune into the TV show that is in the works but I have a feeling that this book was written because of the TV shows development.
I was hooked just the same as I was with the first and pretty much devoured it in one sitting. It is soap opera drama and I was addicted. If you are looking for a light fun read to distract and entertain you then this is the series for you. It would make for a good beach read or airplane read.
Have you read Famous In Love? Are you planning on reading Truly, Madly, Famously?
