This is NOT your typical Hollywood romance. There are NO virgins falling for actors. There are NO celebrities falling for the girl next door. What there IS, is a damaged girl who is rescued by the sexy Drew Forrester. Can they get past her secret? Or his?
Sydney Allen is trying to be your average 24 year old New Yorker. It’s hard to be average though when your mother is Evangeline Allen, an Oscar winning actress known as “America’s Sweetheart” to moviegoers across the globe. It’s even harder to be average when your dad is Reid Tannen, Hollywood Bad Boy and one of the highest paid actors in the world.
Their divorce when Sydney was 12 years old was set off by a series of haunting incidents that left Sydney scarred mentally and physically. Hollywood destroyed her parents’ marriage and almost destroyed her. She hasn't owned a TV, read magazines or watched movies since the divorce, refusing to take part in an industry that brought her so much pain.
Now 12 years after her mother took her from LA and hid her in New York to keep her safe, no one but her best friend Leah knows who Sydney is or that her parents are famous movie stars and she’s determined to keep it that way. She guards her identity fanatically, not letting anyone get close enough to her to find out who she is.
When Sydney meets the gorgeous but mysterious Drew Forrester at a run down gym in Hell's Kitchen, her life changes. It’s time for her to decide if he’s worth sharing her secret with, or if she’s better off being alone forever. Or maybe she’ll find out that she’s not the only one hiding something. Dating Drew, Sydney is forced to confront all of her fears at once; celebrity, fame, tabloids, stalkers. Can she survive another high profile exposure to the world?
This was one of those times when the blurb caught my attention without my knowing anything about the book or the author. The book’s description just lept off the computer screen at me, and I took a chance and one-clicked. I’m so glad I did because Relatively Famous was so much more than I expected.
“He’s my everything.”
Sydney and Drew, the main characters, had some smokin’ hot chemistry that had me fanning myself. Their attraction was pretty explosive.
“That was without a doubt, the most intense orgasm of my entire life. You own me, Sydney.”
The main element that I enjoyed the most was the bit of mystery surrounding Drew. Trying to figure out exactly who he was kept me flipping the pages. I had my suspicions all along, but all different kinds of scenarios kept popping up in my head. I enjoyed the plot twist at the end and reading Sydney’s reactions when she finally figures everything out about Drew and his secrets. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the Famous series.
