    Lovely heartwarming romance

    I was drawn to this story by the pairing of these two characters and it absolutely lived up to my hopes and then some. Emmy is a talented young woman who has paid the price of fame willingly but realizes she is burning out and escapes her gilded cage. The small rural area of Iowa is a peaceful, quiet community, far different from L.A. and just what she needs to restore her faith in herself and her music. I particularly loved these small town scenes, the farmer’s market, the center where Evan teaches art to teens, the wonderful and humorous exchanges involving Evan’s elderly neighbor who is trying her hand at internet dating. There’s also a side trip to the Minnesota State Fair which, if you’ve ever been to a state fair, will definitely resonate. Emmy expresses her thanks to Evan for taking her in by assisting him in little ways, seamlessly integrating herself into his daily life until he begins to realize how much he’ll miss her when she’s gone. Emmy had promised herself that this would be the summer of no men after some disastrous very public breakups caught with glee by the paparazzi. She’s an open, friendly woman who always believes the good in everyone, a definite flaw when in jaded Hollywood society. But she trusts Evan, and though they both believe pursuing their attraction would be a mistake, they come to the point where they throw caution to the winds and do it anyway. Because of their emotional connection, the steamy scenes are not just about sex but show another bond of trust between them. Evan is doubly challenged by Emmy’s sudden appearance. It’s not just his fear that she will be discovered. It’s also his sudden desire to paint again, after years of self-denial. She’s his muse, and he finds himself secretly sneaking up to his attic and capturing her, and other subjects of interest on canvas. Evan comes across as a really nice man, quiet and funny and protective of Emmy once he understands more of her circumstances. Plus, he’s not shy in the bedroom once he and Emmy agree to explore what’s between them. Eventually, these warring conflicts burst their happy bubble of isolation and they have to face up to the reality of what’s waiting for them out in public. The resolution of these conflicts with the choices they make leads to a very satisfying happy ending. Famous is a lovely, heartwarming and sexy romance and an excellent addition to any contemporary romance bookshelf.
