Truly Madly Famously by Rebecca Serle
Rating: 4 stars
This sequel to Famous in Love takes place immediately following the first book. Paige and Rainer are together, but Paige is having serious doubts. Rainer is struggling with holding his image together after the scandal with his father. In a drunken moment of stupidity, Paige calls Jordan for help and they’re photographed in a compromising position. All of their reputations are immediately ruined as fans either turn against them for destroying their perfect on and off camera romance or are rooting for the love triangle to really play out.
Much like the first book, Paige has a pretty good idea of what she really wants, but she believes that true love is all about sacrificing what she desires the most. She is ruled so strongly by her public image and her passionate desire to keep all of her fans happy. She continues to struggle with wanting both Rainer and Jordan in her life, even though she realizes the difference in roles she wishes they would play. She’s constantly musing and introspective and honestly a little bit full of herself and just how important she really is.
Overall, I enjoyed this sequel. I was frustrated with Paige and how badly she wanted Jordan and seemed to think that it automatically meant she wasn’t supposed to have him. They had some heated moments which definitely steamed things up. I didn’t feel any chemistry with Rainer in this book and wish their rollercoaster emotions didn’t rule so much of the story. But if you’re in the mood for some quick and fun YA books, this is a good series to try. But do yourself a favor and do NOT watch the tv show at the same time. You’ll find yourself constantly wondering WHYYYYYY they changed so many things! I was more about the tv show’s story at first, but now I really wish it had gone the route of the book. Except I don’t like the tv’s Jordan. Or Rainer. So maybe I should just stop watching. 🙂 Read the books, though!
