She fell in love with him in the books - now she has the chance to star opposite him in the film . . .

Paige doesn't think she's particularly special, but after getting the starring role in a massive film adaptation of the bestselling Locked trilogy, the rest of the world would disagree. Now she's thrown into the spotlight, and into a world of gossip, rumour and deceit. The only people who know what she's going through are her two male co-stars, and they can't stand the sight of each other. Paige knows it's a mistake to fall in love on the set of a movie, but days of on-screen romance and intensity start to change her mind. The question is, can she keep what happens behind the scenes a secret when the world is watching her every move?
Addictive and fun, this is a light and quick-paced novel of first love and becoming famous. I love the cover, it is beautiful and stands out easily!

Paige is just your normal girl with a dream of being a famous actress with the support from her two best friends. When Paige stumbles across auditions for the bestselling Locked trilogy, Paige auditions for the role of her dreams that will dramatically change her life. But being in the spotlight is anything but simple, Paige must watch all her actions as one false move will have rumours splashed across magazines, with most being false. Not only must Paige adapt to a new life, but she must control her feelings for her new co-stars, but what happens when she falls in love with one?

Paige is a very adorable, sweet and innocent protagonist, she is unaware of her talent and does not demand attention. However, I did find her to be a little selfish on rare occasions when talking to others about her siblings and friends, though at other times she was quite the opposite.

The love interest was a love triangle! Oh my days! I got a little annoyed. She knew who she wanted and then, instead of avoiding the risk she went and dives straight into it! She should have chosen the one she really wanted, and now it's complicated things meaning I have a pretty certain idea of the romance-side to the sequel; the love interests were also very clique, we had the good boy and the bad boy.

Though not very unique, Famous in Love was certainly well written. It continuously engaged you within the novel, and felt a lot more realistic than other novels in its genre (becoming famous). The plot was quick-paced and dramatic, just sadly not original enough. Though I did enjoy the setting of the novel, as Serle included scenes where they explore Hawii instead of being solely about being on set.

Overall this is an addictive novel and you won't stop until the end, it just did not feel original enough for me.
