Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss follows Lacey, a new, seventeen-year-old actress, as she stars in a zombie film opposite a renowned actor, named Grant. Since signing onto this film, she’s had a rift with her father, who wants her to focus on school and not get caught up in show business. Her father ends up hiring a tutor from the local school, who happens to be an entertainment (a.k.a. film) ...more
Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss is a Young Adult contemporary romance. It is the second book in a set of three standalone books with crossover characters. The first book was Abby's story in Love, Life, and the List.
This book can 100% be read as a standalone. Abby has a small part in this book. But you don't need to know anything about Love, Life, and the List to enjoy this book. I actually have read Love, Life, and the List, but had no idea while read ...more
What bothered me the most with this book is that it is n ...more
I love Kasie's books because they are just so much fun and I can get fully lost in them. They're the pinacle of having a good time. Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss was no different. We follow Lacey Barnes as she's set to start alongside a major Hollywood heartthrob in her breakout role. There's an adorable romance, onset drama, and tentative friendships that develop organically. I do think I liked Love, Life, and the List a bit more, but this was still a ...more
This was just average all around for me. The characters were okay, but I don’t feel like I truly connected with any of them. I related to a couple characteristics, but for the most part they were each pretty bland. One exciting thing would surface about one of them, but it never was fully developed.
The plot was decent. I liked the aspect of the career sabotage, but I felt like the person behind it all was a bit obvious from the beginning. It was nice to read about an actress and behind th ...more
OH LOOK I WAS RIGHT OH MY GOD I'M GOOD.
I'm also digging the cover and the short synopsis we have.
3/15/18 (Before Reading)
I had to recheck my review before jumping to conclusions, but I am 100% sure this is Lacey's book. Knowing that she's an actress and the word "fame" is in the title, I'm all the more ready.
West better come and slay again.
This book is cute, but the plot and characters are superficial. I'm so disappointed. It was my first Kasie West!!??
This book would be great if you're looking for the lightest read ever. (Look, ma! I'm positive af!) c:
Am I a bit shook since I already got approved for another arc yesterday? Maybe
But let me tell you, two arcs in 2 days, I could get used to that kind of life.
I've never started a book and finished it in under a day. We can all agree that this might be one of my top three Kasie West books. This was an all-around fantastic read. I can't wait for everyone to fall in love with Lacey and Donovan.
Being an actress is hard. You have to be the role you have and not let anything stop you from living th ...more
This book follows the typical Kasie West formula: girl with a passion (In this case acting) + cute boy that's slightly misunderstood = love. Is it predictable? Yes, incredibly. However, it is predictable in the same way that those rom-coms on Netflix are predictable. It's a tried and true formula that works well, and Kasie's writing is solid enough to carry it. Kasie's books are comfort food, like ice cr ...more

I cannot tell ya'll how excited I was to be approved for this ARC. Kasie West is my favorite YA contemporary author. When your in the mood for a fun fluffy fast read, Kasie West will never disappoint. I like my books cheesy and cute and fluffy sometimes and this was just the perfect one.I fell in love with this book, Lucky in Love remains my favorite Kasie West book but this one is a close second.
Fame, Fate and First Ki ...more
