Being a big star has its perks, but Caden Carlisle is in love with his costar, Brooklyn Halloway, and the movie studio demands that they keep it under wraps to ensure big box office success.
Cade always disliked the spotlight, preferring to focus on the work, but coupled with the ruthless stalking of rabid paparazzi, the secrecy forced upon his new and fragile relationship, and the vindictive games of others, celebrity status turns into a curse.
Can the roller coaster of emotions bring them closer still, or will jealousy and distance rip them apart forever?
Kahlen Aymes turns up the heat and cranks up the angst in FAMOUS Novel Two; the continuation of Cade and Brook’s incredible love story… Because there’s more to fame than meets the eye.
3.5 KINKS Review
Love-sickness. Frustration. Passion. Jealousy. Angst. More than Famous has it all.
The FAMOUS novels give you a great insight into the life behind the big screen. Next time I see another Hollywood celebrity couple in the news breaking up or getting together, I will forever say to myself ~ the studio created that story.
More than Famous is the continuation of Brook and Caden epic love affair. They fell in love in Book 1 while filming the movie The Future of Our Past based on the book written by Kahlen Aymes. That is the reason why I was drawn to this story. It’s an original idea I had never come across while reading. The author creates a love story around the making of a movie based on her previous works: BLOODY BRILLIANT I SAY!
Caden declares his love to Brook. “I love you, Brook. More than anything” This is what makes books swoon worthy. Our hero, Caden, declares his love to Brook every chance he gets. He wants to shout it to the world. But he can’t. There lies the rub!
Brook and Cade are living a lie. A lie orchestrated by the movie production company, Pinnacle. The studio execs want to keep the relationship under wraps out of fear it will have a negative impact on box office receipts. And to make matter worse, their contracts stipulates no relationships are allowed with co-stars.
Caden hates Brook’s relationship with her ex-boyfriend. The studio execs have created this fake relationship. Brook’s frenemy, Wendy, is jealous of Caden’s desire for Brook. She pulls a Bitch 101 move that creates a major separation between Brook and Caden which leads to many moments of angst.
- Frustration Part Deux
Brook decides to punish Caden. The heartbreak that ensues is so painful, I was beginning to wish Caden did commit the ultimate betrayal. However, I remember that she is only 18 years old. So she gets a pass.
Brook and Caden are so in love, they are determine to live openly and still maintain a degree of discretion by the studios standards. With 2 other movies set to produce, Caden decides to throw the hammer down and make an ultimatum to the studios.
“Either you help us be together quietly or we’ll be together loudly”
That was my redeeming moment for him. His tears were beginning to make me a little uncomfortable.
I was gifted this book by the author for an honest review. I love a celebrity/Hollywood romance. Each time an author writes drama that makes you want to pull hair out; throw your Kindle away, you are in for an intelligent read. Hair pulling will happen!
If you like a mushy, tearjerker, sappy, saccharine romantic romp story, this is the book for you. There are many moments of “I love you” “I want you” “You are the world to me” throughout the book. There is never a moment whereas Brook and Caden do not profess their love to each other. What more can pull them apart? To be determine in Beyond Famous #3.
