Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer...everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun.
When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a "reality version of Sex and the City," they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please!
Soon Jane is TV's hottest star. Fame brings more than she ever imagined possible for a girl from Santa Barbara-free designer clothes, the choicest tables at the most exclusive clubs, invites to Hollywood premieres-and she's lapping up the VIP treatment with her eclectic entourage of new pals. But those same friends who are always up for a wild night are also out for a piece of Jane's spotlight.
In a city filled with people chasing after their dreams, it's not long before Jane wakes up to the reality that everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be.
I'm sure nearly everyone recognizes the name Lauren Conrad - reality tv star, fashion designer, tween built celebrity. Star/Co-Star of shows like Laguna Beach and The Hills.
She's done many things that are quite impressive with her career and I admire her for her pursuit in adding writing books to the list of things she does; however a writer she is not.
LA Candy is flat, its long winded and its characters despite being well dressed (going by the in-depth detail of every outfit and item) don't have much personality or heart.
I wanted more from its characters, I wanted more of the journey, I wanted a reason to say "yeah, go for that" I wanted to see where Jane's journey took her and how it affected her or changed her.
Unfortunately I had a hard time focusing on anything and maintaining my interest.
LA Candy could have been a good book but its missing the life that would have made it a fairly good read.
