Release Day Mini Review: Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West

Title: Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss
Author: Kasie West
Series: Stand Alone
Genre: YA Contemporary
Published By: HarperTeen (Feb. 5, 2019)
Source: ARC Provided by the Publisher (in exchange for an honest review)
My Rating: 4 Stars!



Book Description:
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.










Is there anything better than an adorable read in front of the fire place on a cool winter-y afternoon?

Nope, I believe not.

Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss, like most West books, was just so much fun. So cute and sweet and just the right thing to escape for a couple of hours and be left, by the very last page, with a smile on my face and a warm feeling in my heart. 

Classic West with all the feels, friendships, and storyline that we've all come to know, count on, and love.

    1. I have at least one I haven't read yet as well. It's so hard to pick and choose sometimes what to read so I completely get it.

  12. I've never tried this book. I do agree that reading cuddled under blankets by a fire is the best (with a puppy curled up with you). :-)

  13. I've enjoyed some of Kasie West's books in the past, but others have only been so-so reads for me. I've had my eye on this one, because the premise sounds fun and interesting, but I've been hesitant about committing! Your review is very positive, so you've nudged me towards a yes...
