I have to convince audiences everywhere that a zombie loves a zombie hunter

I was happy to start reading Fame, Fate and the First Kiss, but I wasn’t as great as her usual novels.

Book Review: Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West


Title & Author: Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Release date: February 5 2019
Series: Standalone
Publisher: HarperCollins


Lacey Barnes has dreamt of being in a movie for as long as she can remember. However, while her dream did include working alongside the hottest actor in Hollywood, it didn’t involve having to finish up her senior year of high school at the same time she was getting her big break. Although that is nothing compared to Donavan, the straight-laced student her father hires to tutor her, who is a full-on nightmare.

As Lacey struggles to juggle her burgeoning career, some on-set sabotage, and an off-screen romance with the unlikeliest of leading men, she quickly learns that sometimes the best stories happen when you go off script.

I give Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West three out of five hearts because it was very cute read, but thin in comparison to my favourites.

Lacey has a broken relationship with her parents. Her mom lets her take every role she can get and her father is against the whole thing and blocks her at every possible turn. She is so focused on her career she doesn’t let anyone distract her, not even a boyfriend.

I wish there were more emphasis on how she fixed her relationship with her parents instead of forcing her into a romance and having so much time spend on homework. There are also some passages taken from the script and I didn’t feel they were necessary and were distracting.

Overall I think Kasie West tried to hook into a few trends in the literary world, but it didn’t work for me.
