I've been famous since I can remember. Singing, acting, dancing--I've done it all. The tabloids cover my every move, but I don't want that anymore. I want to be normal, whatever that is.
When I leave Hollywood for college in Vermont, I'm on my own for the first time in my life. This is my chance to figure out who I am and what I want in life.
But it's a lot harder than I expected. I can't escape my image. Classes are difficult, and I'm struggling. And then there's Caleb Fox.
Sexy, intriguing Caleb Fox.
Caleb is the one man who doesn't want to use me. He breaks down my walls. He challenges me. He wants me. And I just don't know if I can give him the same--or if he'll stick around when he finds out my shameful secret that the tabloids haven't managed to uncover.
Dating him is risky enough, but loving him could break me.

This book disappointed me, and I feel bad saying that, because I wanted to love it. But that's what disappointment is, so I'll get over it. Let me explain.
Hailey is eighteen, a freshman in college, and a superstar. As she explains it, she started as a Gerber baby, then, "I was on the soap until I was five. Then I played Annie in yet another Broadway revival of the show before playing Cosette. And then TV sitcoms and films. And my singing continued as I acted. The tours, the songwriting... It goes on and on." Also, "I had won a few Grammys and Emmy awards by the time I was fourteen."
But Hailey hated every single minute of her life. Except for maybe that one time she got to ride a camel. Her mom made her wear slutty clothes and date rock stars, she hasn't had pancakes or dessert since she was a pre-teen, and she doesn't even want to be famous. So she leaves her LA life behind and heads to Green College in Burlington,...
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Elyssa Patrick and Netgalley.) 18-year-old Hailey is a famous singer/actress, but she's taking a break for a while and going to college, where she meets Caleb. Slowly they fall in love, but will Caleb still love her when he finds out about all the things she has done in the past? Can he look past her mistakes and still love her for who she really is inside? And will he stay with her?
This was an okay NA contemporary romance, but I just couldn't get into it.
I don't know what it was about this one, but right from the beginning it just wasn't doing it for me, I didn't connect with the characters, I didn't really care what happened to them, and certain things just annoyed me.
The first thing to annoy me was a scene where Hailey was carrying a drink and some shopping bags, she bumps into Caleb, spilling her drink all down herself, and he offers to take...
This was just ok.
I mean it had a lot more of storytelling to it, which I was surprised at, but overall it was just another New Adult fiction book.
The twist was with her having a Hollywood career that she left behind to pursue college and find herself.
I was getting really annoyed with her self doubt and self consciousness. It's like, you were famous for a reason, you have talent and yet you're insecure about your art paintings? C'mon. A little unrealistic.
And Caleb was uber sweet. Almost too sweet. He had no flaws.
Bottom line: Cute little story line, however I will not be picking up the next in the series. I liked the way it ended (happy ending, no cliffhanger) and don't care much for the other characters to keep reading.
