Summary

The romantic story of a girl who gets plucked from obscurity to star in the next major feature film franchise based on a book and the ensuing love triangles she gets entangled in on—-and off screen.

Meet Paige Townsen, Rainer Devon, and Jordan Wilder…

When Paige Townsen, a young unknown, gets cast in the movie adaptation of a blockbuster book series, her life changes practically overnight. Within a month, Paige has traded the quiet streets of her hometown for a crowded movie set on the shores of Maui, and is spending quality time with her co-star Rainer Devon, one of People’s Sexiest Men Alive. But when troubled star Jordan Wilder lands the role of the other point in the movie’s famous love triangle, Paige’s crazy new life gets even crazier.

In this coming-of-age romance inspired by the kind of celeb hookups that get clever nicknames and a million page views, Paige must figure out who she is – and who she wants – while the whole world watches.

Awesome fact! LOCKED which is the story/movie script the characters are cast for inside FAMOUS IN LOVE is a real book! Written by Rebecca Serle writing as Parker Witter, who is also the reclusive author character in her Famous in Love series! Read the article in Publishers Weekly HERE!
  


Excerpt
PROLOGUE

Listen.

I’ll tell you what it’s like to be with him. How he kisses me. How he touches my cheek. I’ll tell you what he whispers to me before we go out and meet those screaming crowds. How he holds my pinkie, just slightly, so the cameras won’t catch us touching. I’ll tell you our signals. How blinking once means it’s okay; I’m here, and how blinking twice means don’t answer that. I’ll tell you everything, but you have to promise never to write it down or repeat it. You have to promise it will be our secret.

Sometimes, during an interview, I’m caught with this intense desire to tell the truth. We’ll be right there in the middle of talking about my favorite brand of jeans or something, and I’ll want to slip out of my chair onto the floor, sit cross-legged, and just spill. It’s my nature. I’ve always been someone who’s quick to trust. I told Holly Anderson freshman year that my sister was pregnant, and by lunchtime the entire class knew. I don’t know why I expected her to keep that secret for me, since we weren’t even friends, but something inside me was compelled to let her in. I like to let people in. Which is why it’s so ridiculous that it’s the one thing I absolutely, positively cannot do anymore. These questions have already been answered. The publicist stands by with a clipboard, toeing the carpet and checking her watch manically, like the minute hand is a slow toddler she’s trying to hurry up.

“Seven,” I say, nodding, because we’re working on an endorsement deal with them. I haven’t been allowed to wear a single other brand of jeans for the last six months.

“I like them, too,” the interviewer says. She winks at me, like we’re in on something together, and I suddenly realize I’ve forgotten her name. I’m not sure I’ve ever learned it, actually. The only name that matters is mine.

We leave and I round the corner, and then he’s there, walking toward me. He’s flanked on either side by people— Wyatt and Sandy and two girls I don’t recognize— but he sees me, and our eyes lock for a moment. I can’t touch him. The only thing I want to do is run to him and have him put his arms around me, to take me someplace that isn’t here. Someplace it’s just the two of us and none of this matters. But I can’t do that because no one knows. Not Wyatt and not Sandy, not even Cassandra. They think we’re just friends— that I belong to someone else. They don’t know that I’ve made a huge mistake. They don’t know that, like August, I chose wrong.

  1. I loved her Scorpio Races and the first book in the Raven Cycle was really good. Lot's of language, but definitely worth the read. I'll be over late...

    I like that Charlie accepts Katie's flaws and insecurities. When someone can accept you at the worst of times it'll be even greater when you get to spend the good times together.

  21. I know you don't tend to read inspirational fiction, but Jenny's books are rather light there and the characters and voice are fabulous. I'd definitely recommend There You'll Find Me by her and this series, of course. :)
