Book Review | Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad
Title: Sweet Little Lies: An L.A. Candy Novel
Author: Lauren Conrad
About the Book:
How Sweet it is?
Jane Roberts was the average girl next door until she and her best friend, Scarlett Harp, landed their own reality show, L.A. Candy. Now the girls have an all-access pass to Hollywood’s hottest everything. But there’s more to life on camera than just parties and shopping. . . .
When racy photos of Jane are leaked to the press, she finds herself at the center of a tabloid scandal. She turns to her co-star Madison Parker for help, unaware that Madison is scheming behind the scenes. She might be Jane’s shoulder to cry on, but does Madison really have Jane’s back?
Scarlett’s working on a scandal of her own. She’s fallen for someone who’s strictly off-limits which means Scarlett has a big secret to keep . . . from the L.A. Candycameras, the paparazzi staking out her apartment, even from her best friend.
Of course, nothing stays secret for long for the stars of the newest hit TV series, and all this drama couldn’t be better for ratings. But can Jane survive another season in the spotlight?
In television star Lauren Conrad’s dishy, entertaining novel about young Hollywood, the lies are only as sweet as the people tell-ing them.
This is the second installment in the L.A. Candy series. I reviewed the first book and loved it and was waiting into anticipation for this one to be released. I literally devoured this book in one day!
The book starts off where the first one ended with Jane taking off to Mexico after the scandalous photographs hit the newsstands. I felt for Jane and got a sense of just how naive this poor girl is. She really is way too trusting and can’t see the reality of the situation. Madison is the girl we love to hate and she has her own dark secrets too that weren’t revealed in this book. I bet there will be more to the Madison storyline in the next book in the series. I think I can figure out what the secret is, but I won’t say just in case you haven’t read the books.
I enjoyed reading about the lifestyle of the rich and famous because it is the complete opposite of my own. It was nice to live vicariously through the characters in the book as they dine at fancy restaurants, go to the best clubs in town and wear designer clothes. However, I don’t think I could handle the paparazzi. That would drive me insane being followed and photographed everywhere I went. Still its a quick fun read that I thoroughly enjoyed and I am on the edge of my seat waiting for Lauren Conrad’s next book!
