How Sweet it is?
Jane Roberts was the average girl next door until she and her best friend, Scarlett Harp, landed their own reality show, L.A. Candy. Now the girls have an all-access pass to Hollywood's hottest everything. But there's more to life on camera than just parties and shopping. . . .
When racy photos of Jane are leaked to the press, she finds herself at the center of a tabloid scandal. She turns to her co-star Madison Parker for help, unaware that Madison is scheming behind the scenes. She might be Jane's shoulder to cry on, but does Madison really have Jane's back?
Scarlett's working on a scandal of her own. She's fallen for someone who's strictly off-limits—which means Scarlett has a big secret to keep . . . from the L.A. Candy cameras, the paparazzi staking out her apartment, even from her best friend.
Of course, nothing stays secret for long for the stars of the newest hit TV series, and all this drama couldn't be better for ratings. But can Jane survive another season in the spotlight?
Nothing has changed since the start of L.A. Candy, the reality show. Everything is the same, except rumors, scandal, and bitchy-ness is swirling in the L.A. life of Jane, Scarlett, and Madison.
KISS: Keep It Simple Stupid, that would describe the writing in this book. While I was reading, I could imagine how better it could be. With out a doubt, I could top Lauren's writing. There's reasons why it has made no hype in the literary world. Unprofessional writing, book with not much to tell, un-developed characters = NOTHING.
From the beginning, I wasn't hooked I only kept reading because I was intrigued. Other than insights some insights to the celeb-world, Sweet Little Lies has nothing to offer. It's perfectly like watching a reality TV. At first its good you love the drama then at the end gives you a sour taste, like you wasted your time. Clearly the overuse of (parenthesis) will turn you off from reading a book. It's like Lauren had obvious difficultly expressing herself!
The only highlights are it can be a guilty pleasure to watch or read reality TV, so there are some people that were smitten with this book. On the other hand, I wasn't, along with 75% of the other people who have read it. I want to say that this negative review isn't because I don't like Lauren. I do like her style, as a celeb. But, she has shown little to almost none potential as a literary author.
To conclude, I liked little about the book it was too fluffy. Although, we did spend an entertaining, and interesting time for a short period of time. Still, if you like reality TV you might find some enjoyment in it. = >
