  • Cute, sweet YA book

    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. I was not contacted, asked or required to leave a review. I received no compensation, financial or otherwise. I have voluntarily read this book, and this review is my honest opinion .***

  • Good read

    Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss is a companion novel to Love, Life, and the List, but can easily be read as a standalone. Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss is a cute little YA Contemporary Romance story which Kasie West seems to do so well. It is just a nice, light read. The perfect book to read when you are in the mood for something easy to get right into and just soar right through. The story is obviously a romance, but it has a bit of mystery mixed in. Someone is messing with Lacey on set and we don’t find out who until the end of the book. There are many suspects and they are weeded out until the final one is discovered. This was an interesting aspect to add, as it just added a little something more to the cute little story. It makes you question EVERYONE. I was able to fully invest myself in Lacey and Donavan’s romantic relationship. I thought they were super cute together! The characters were quite immature, but I mean they are teenagers. What I mean is sometimes you get YA books with more mature characters, which I prefer. That’s just a tiny complaint, though. I’m sure it won’t bother most people! Just some of the things they did really reminded me that I was reading about kids. This book is another nice little read from Kasie West. I’m looking forward to reading more!
