I thought this was a really cute book, almost like a novel version of a chick flick, and I mean that in a good way. It involves LA, fame, and riches, but it has a lot of heart. Is some of that heart served with extra cheese? Yes, at times, but I was looking for a light, enjoyable read when I read this, and that’s exactly what I got.

There are a few moments that felt a bit stiff, but nothing absolutely horrible. Things between Dani and Nathan should have progressed more slowly and been flushed out a bit more, because even though they had some cute moments it seemed like they went from talking a couple of times to kissing. Likewise, Dani was a pretty cool chick throughout the book, so her acting like a brat at the end seemed a bit out of character, but I guess it was necessary plot-wise.

Everything gets wrapped up at the end of this one, which is nice. The ending seemed abrupt, in that I just didn’t expect the last scene to be the last scene. Generally, though, this was a really enjoyable and cute book, which is why I’m giving it such a good rating. It celebrates family and friends, features lots of good moments, and has tons of mentions of parties and fun in the sun. And really, who can resist that?
