This was a quick read about a women who is used to being behind a camera but suddenly gets thrown out in front of it. She quickly learns that with fame comes the hard task of figuring out who to trust. I’ve had this book on my kindle for a long time and I’m glad I finally got to it ...more
Danica Bennett has a secret. A big one. One that could either hurt her fledgling photography career or help it soar. She takes pictures of the stars. And not just the official pictures. She's a member of the paparazzi and her pictures have hurt quite a few of the stars. Only her agent knows her true identity as all of her work is signed with a lip print and her nickname in the press is the "Mamarazzi." When Danica is mistaken for an extra on the set of the upcoming new comedy "Cousins", she ...more

Review for Chick Lit Central (

Danica Bennett knows exactly what it’s like to live a double life. At first glance, you might not notice her. She projects herself as nondescript, simple. She blends into the background and never makes a scene, which is why she’s so successful at her job. She’s "The Mamarazzi," a photographer famous for taking pictures of the rich and (in)famous. No one knows of her true identity, other than her somewhat loyal agent, a loyalty based upon

I really enjoyed reading Mamarazzi. This is a great, sweet, clean romance anyone can enjoy.
I fell in love with Danica instantly; completely understanding why she took the photos she did. Her desire was to take photos of the stars on personal shoots-glamour shots-beautiful spreads, not the paparazzi shots. But, she had to do what she did to pay her bills and those of her mother’s nursing home care. She still aspired to be THE photographer to the stars, hence the need for her pseudonym,

This book was different from what I have read. I do not think I have ever read a book on paparazzi. Here we have Danica Bennett as Mamarazzi. She is very good at her job, but her conscience has been getting to her. She has to continue because of her bills and she has her mother's bills, too. When Danica sneaks onto a tv show, they think she is the extra they are missing. One of the stars, Eliot Lane can not keep his eyes off of her and their chemistry is seen by everyone in this scene. What ...more

A photographer forced to make her living as a member of the paparazzi unexpectedly finds herself on the other side of the camera lens and facing the sort of exposure that could ruin her career and her new relationship with a famous actor.

Danica Bennett has had a rough life. She gets her love of photography from her mom, who raised her alone and now suffers early-onset Alzheimer's. Paying for her mother's care is one of the main reasons Danica continues working in a profession that undermines her

What are the chances that Danica Bennett could go from being the notorious "Mamarazzi" with a hidden identity to being Hollywood's next darling on the other side of the camera? The impossible trip she's in for engagingly unfolds in Mamarazzi by author Brooke Williams.

This is the second book I've read by this author. There are some major and minor story similarities between this one and Williams's Accept This Dandelion, and a scene or two between Danica and her leading man, Eliot Lane, reminded

From beginning to end, Mamarazzi is just plain fun! I found it very easy to identify with Danica, a woman who got into the paparazzi business to pay the bills but dreams of becoming a "legitimate" photographer. Her struggles—the moral dilemma of whether to submit a particular photograph, the guilt she felt due to leaving her Alzheimer's afflicted mother in a nursing home in Nebraska while she chased her dreams in Hollywood, and the question of when to reveal her identity to Lane—felt realistic ...more

I love how author Brooke Williams puts her characters into impossible situations, and she hasn't lost her touch with Mamarrazi.

Danica Bennett has always wanted to be a photographer.

A real professional shutterbug. But unlike her mom who specialized in landscapes, she wants to take photographs of people. Unfortunately in her desperate need to care for her ailing mother and pay the rent, she has to work undercover as one of the despised Hollywood paparazzi. She slips in and out of scenes and leaves

Danica Bennett move to Hollywood to be a photographer. She needed to make enough to live and take care of her mother in a nursing home. She has dreamed about being a photographer to the stars. It is hard to get her foot in the door and she has to resort to taking those pictures the stars don't want anyone to see. Being mistaken for an extra at the studio where she was sneaking around. She figured it was a good chance to get some great unseen photos and maybe make a little extra money. She never ...more

This is the second book I have read by Brooke Williams. I absolutely love her writing style. Mamarazzi has a great unique storyline. You should definitely one click this one.

Danica is a photographer. She want to make her mom proud. She’s in Hollywood trying to become a great photographer. She ends up as a Hollywood paparazzi. She is really good at what she does. She stays out of the limelight. No one knows her true identity and they call her Mamarazzi. She falls into an acting part when she is

Mamarazzi had me hooked from the first line. This author has a real talent for creating layered and interesting characters that you want to root for and Danica Bennett was one of them.

Danica’s uses a fake identity, the Mamarazzi to take photos of celebrities in secret and sell them to make a living. However, she dreams of becoming a professional photographer someday. When she stumbles upon an acting gig and finds herself falling for one of her co-stars, Danica struggles even harder to keep her

Mamarazzi took me on a fun ride from a different point of view. I love books that feature down to earth Hollywood types, but this one takes that premise a bit further by including the paparazzi. It's somewhat hard for me to reconcile Danica with the stigma of the paparazzi throughout the story, because she's described as so sweet and nice. I loved that she had morals and ethics even in a profession that is looked at as unfavorable. I also loved her driving force, family is everything.

Lane is so

Can a person be a villain and a hero? Brooke Williams shows it's possible in Mamarazzi as she pens a story which captures the imagination...and steals your heart.

Danica Bennett's a brilliant photographer, but nobody knows it except her...and her agent. She'd happily toss her disguises in the trash for a "real" job except for the bills on her counter and her grumbling belly. When her search for the next great "shot" lands her as an extra in the next great sitcom, her life takes an unexpected

Danica Bennett is doing a job she hates to pay the bills and keep her mother comfortable in the Alzheimer’s home. Danica is better than any other paparazzi in Hollywood, but her name is a secret since she soiled the reputations of many famous people.

Quite by accident, while she’s on the studio lot trying to get some scoop pictures, she’s mistaken for an extra and whisked on to the set of the new sitcom Cousins. There she meets Gage Malone and Eliot Lane, the co-stars. Lane can’t take his eyes

Super story! What happens when you are paid to try and get pictures exposing secrets of the rich and famous, but you have your own secret that you are trying to hide? Danica has a dream but dreams won't pay her bills or her mom's bills, so she has to become someone she does not like. Thinking she is hidden as she sneaks on a closed set in order to get some pictures the tables are turned when the crew thinks she is the extra they have been waiting on. She goes with that and things snowball from ...more

I enjoyed this light and easy romance. The main character is a paparazzi, so it was fun to see things from the other side of the camera. She unwittingly gets a job as an extra on an up-and-coming sitcom, and begins to see things from a reversed role. This book is a fast read/listen (I listened to the Audible audio version of the book), but the pacing is good, characters are well-developed, and the story line is clean and sweet. The narrator, Leonor A. Woodworth, does a good job and sounds as I ...more

Hollywood is full of secrets and lies. how does one handle it when her lie is exposing others secrets to the world.
Mamarazzi is an enjoyable story following Danica through her accidental part on a new comedy series. the tale is full of laughter, love, nail biting moments and even a few tears. with an expected plot played out in an unexpected way.
I rooted for Danica throughout the book, loved lane and am hoping to see more of Noelle-maybe in her own story. I hated Have at first but learned to

Excellent Story
I absolutely loved the story. Getting a job snapping shots of celebs sounds like a dream job, and not a bad way to pay the bills. Then a mistake ends Brooke up on a new tv show and the excitement begins. This was a great read full of laughter and love. A definite must read that I would recommend to anyone!

I've enjoyed everything I've read by Brooke Williams, and this story didn't disappoint. Danica has a taste of life that most of us can only dream about. But now that she's there, she's in a real predicament, and we have to keep turning the pages to find out how she finds her way out. This is a fun read!

I love Brooke Williams' storytelling. I can always trust her books to be well-written/edited and thought provoking. I think this is the first book I've read from the POV of a paparazzi. Some are probably dirt bags, but not Danica, and that made her a great heroine for me.

If you love great storytelling and sweet romances, definitely give this book a shot. You won't regret it.
