There was a lot I did to get to this point, to get 42 million followers. Some of it I was proud of, most of it I wasn't.

There was a group of us, all internet celebrities, and everyone wanted in, which is how six of us ended up living in this mansion, a camera always on, the public always watching. Two months and nine carefully scripted TV episodes that would get us more o

What a unique read! Alessandra Torre is known for writing some steamy reads, and yet here she has crafted a juicy, drama filled read with absolutely no sex in it. Also, this one was so much more than a book about reality tv and instagram influencers, and I truly had an incredible adventure with Cash and Emma. There's obviously romance, but it's sprinkled with a dash of emotion, suspense, and diversity. If you're looking for a compulsive read, please do yourself a favor and give The F List a read ...more
4 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I liked this story quite a lot.
It wasn't that unusual of a premise but the execution made it feel fresh and it was a totally fun read.
Great depiction of present times with all the celebrity endorsements, fan followings and carefully scripted reality TV.

This is my second book by Ms. Torres.....the first being "The Ghostwriter" and honestly I think that I am fast becoming a fan of her interesting stories and great writing .....her heroines I especially relate to as they are flawed bu

Alessandra Torre wrote a book that has accomplished multiple perspectives and goals. At first look, you have a love story that definitely has a happily ever after. It will sometimes be funny, insightful of influencers, and have a story of two people who finally learn how to be truthful with each other. There were really strong moments of heart and layers of reasons why our characters do what they do.

I loved this!

I love nothing more than Rock-Star-Romances. And even though nobody is a rock star here, we still kinda have that vibe. At least we have a Hollywood vibe. Chase is the son of a Hollywood star and he could just as well be a rock star for how much we love him and how famous he is!
Emma is ... well, she used to be nothing much. She was working a boring job at an airport hotel, when one day her luck changed. And now she's an influencer with 40 million followers. But nobody really likes h

Alessandra Torre is one of those authors that is able to work around so many different types of romance novels and troupes. She can give you dark romance, steamy romance, romantic suspense, romantic comedy and so many more. And she will not fail at it. The F List was just another example of that for me. Completely different from what I have read from Torre before but still with the unique style that all her reader

Alessandra Torre is a chameleon. She can write hot and sexy, mystery and suspense, and light and fluffy. The F List is a fast paced, lighthearted sweet story that has moments of tenderness, humor, anger and eventually love. Two social media influencers who share a moment and then become enemies. In today’s world, the story’s relatable qualities made me ponder and smile and be happy that sometimes reading sweet romance is wonderful and enough.

The F List is about Emma and her dream is to be rich and famous. This is a dream of a lot of young girls and this social media era has really brought this to a whole another level. This books gives us a look into the background of what these people would do to get more followers. Emma is the unlikable one and she is okay with that. I have to say that I really didn't like her, so she played her role really well. Cash who is the golden boy, the son

DNF at 37%

➤ super unlikeable, shallow and noisy heroine
➤ first 37% is about her way to fame, I was bored out of my mind tbh and everything felt too superficial for me
➤ h and H, to this point, had 3 maybe 4 interactions, so not enough
➤ didn't like the narration style, too much "inner-monologue-telling"(? what's the word I'm looking for?) and not enough dialogue for me. I don't know if it improves or changes when the book gets to the reality TV part but I'm honestly not invested enough to find out

“I didn’t deserve this. I’d stolen a dead man’s phone. I owed Amy twelve dollars from takeout three days ago. I’d faked a doctor’s note to get an extra paid sick day at work. I hadn’t done anything in my life which warranted this sort of blessing, and I cried because the hope it gave me was terrifying.”


I read this book in one day and it had not happened to me in months!

Shelves: chaste, romance
This was a very strange romance that ended up working for me. It has the trappings of a wish-fulfillment fantasy in that the main characters have fame and fortune and they make no bones about the fakery and image-maintenance involved. But it's all very shallow and the story doesn't flinch from the cost of their attention-seeking or the behind-the-scenes maneuvering to get there. So it has enough grubby detail to undermine the wish-fulfillment part—enough so that I don't think it actually qualifi ...more

Well, I just spent my day reading this awesome contemporary romance novel by Alessandra Torre. The F List dives into the world of online celebrity. This phenomenon has been growing ever since social media and the Kardashians obtained notoriety. The F List dives into the world of two influencers, how they starred in a reality-show, and how they began a storyline for ratings. This cute romance is reminiscent of Christina Lauren novels, so I highly suggest picking up this book if you've rea ...more

Im going to be completely honest here - this isn’t a particularly special book. There’s nothing spectacular about the pacing or setting or characters. It wasn’t bad by any means... just not amazing.

The F List is told in a sort of journal or biography style. It was very much telling me rather than showing me the events which is usually a big no no but worked really well for this story.

Where the F List really shines is in its discussion of social media fame and self esteem. The female main charact

I love this book. From the hilarity to the hashtags, Alessandra Torre tells one fun story.

Emma wants to be famous. That's it. Fame and the fortune that comes with it. She wants to escape her self-involved parents and find some sort of limelight. If it can't be through talented means, and because she isn't related to someone famous, she has to get into Instagram influencing. (I liked the scenes where we learn how Emma built her following base.) Fame, though, turns out to be somewhat unsatisfacto

I needed this one! I have a pretty cheerful temperament, but this quarantine is just hard! I needed the drama, the laughs and the HEA of this very well written contemporary novel!

Loved the Cinderella/Ugly Duckling to a Swan tropes. I loved the relationship between Emma and Chase's brother Wesley, who has Downs Syndrome. One minor caveat: I am NOT a fan of Jerry Springer antics: physical violence is not the answer, folks! This book has a few of these episodes, but there was enough emotional angst

I’ve been having a huge funk with reading lately. This Corona depression is real and it has affected me greatly. But.. this book took all that away. It bought me back to earth and made me realize why I love reading. The depression I have felt, lifted. I actually woke up this morning feeling great and couldn’t wait to finish reading The F List.

Ok, so I went into this book expecting a vapid, "celebrity" romance with characters you love you hate - a bit like car crash tv, where you judge yourself for how much you want to keep watching. However, what I got was a book that I adored, with characters that I genuinely loved!

I was surprised by how much of the story was the backstory of Emma and Cash, but it really worked, giving you a more in depth look at characters that actually had fairly ordinary insecurities and just made mistakes. The e

What a surprising little treat from Alessandra Torre. It’s totally different from the other books I’ve read by her. There’s no suspense, no big twists, no dark subject matter, and *gasp* no sex. It’s just a light, super quick read.

I’ve always been puzzled by celebrities who are rich and famous due to their social media influence rather than their talent or accomplishments. This story explores the artificial and superficial world of celebrity through Emma’s fame-hungry eyes.

My favorite book quotes:
“I knew, early on, that Cash liked Emma. I mean that he really liked her, not just what you saw on the show. His eyes would move to her, wherever she was. And if she wasn’t in the room, then he was looking for her. It was really sweet, but I was the only one who caught on to it. Everyone else… maybe even them… thought that they hated each other.”

Am I missing something here? Where was the chemistry or romance or connection? These characters spent so much time apart how could you possibly believe that they were in love? I reallllly did not get it and feel like I’m totally missing something.

And I get that the author kept it PG for a reason which I’m totally on board with but where is the love between these two. There wasn’t any PG romance at all and to top it off these two were just so unlikeable. Complete fail as a book.

This book tells the story of Cash and Emma who are both in Showbiz industry. Emma has always been insecure about her looks and called ugly. This story tells how life can change in an instant and Emma's transformation is nothing short of incredible. Cash is her frenemy and their love story is not just run-of-the-mill. There were a lot of unexpected things in this book and I absolutely loved how it all came together at the end. I wish we could have a sequel for this book. ...more

The F List, was an easy and lighthearted story, perfect for a few hours of entertainment during these trying times.

I had no issue reading this novel in one sitting. Fast paced, the writing was engaging, and the characters interesting. And I really enjoyed the social media aspect of it all.

All in all, the book delivered exactly what I hoped for, a story that hooked me.

What a unique change of storytelling,  and I really liked it! 

It's a quick read once you get had me flipping the pages to see what would happen next. 
You see, some of the story is laid out through social media and it was done really well!
Emma had a crappy childhood and wasn't the prettiest girl at school and maybe that's why she went the direction she did.  But there was one moment in her miserable younger days when someone did take notice of her, Cash, the popular good looking guy
I liked it at the start, different and interesting. I lost interest when the hero and heroine started forming as a couple, it was too easy and a little lackluster.

The F List is a new standalone contemporary romance.

Alessandra Torre writes all different types of books. This one is quite different from the other AT books that I have read, but it was enjoyable. This one is a romance, but with no sex.

The F List stands for the three F's: fame, fortune and followers. The chapter titles have cute funny hashtags, which I liked very much.

This book has two narrators: Emma (24) and Cash (27). They are both 1st person POVs.

With countless young people around the world broadcasting their personal lives each day in hopes of acquiring internet fame, and countless others pursuing fame as a profession, this story couldn’t be more relevant or rousing.
