Product Description

She’s supposed to cover the stories.
Not be one.

Madison Winters has life in the bag. Gorgeous fiancé? Check. Promotion to become editor of the country’s hottest fashion magazine? Check. Limited edition pair of Manolo Blahniks? Checkity-check.
Catching her fiancé with his pants down isn’t something she expects. In the space of twenty-four hours, Madison loses it all—not even her shoes will be saved.
Swapping sass + bide for sweatpants and Dior for the downward dog is going to be hell. The last thing Madison’s broken heart needs is a run-in with America’s newest playboy. Can she ever recover from this?

Tate Masters has it all—Hollywood’s latest golden boy has washboard abs, a killer smile, and a leading role in the next A-list movie.
Until a secret from his past is splashed all over the headlines, and that ‘good boy’ image fast-tracks to the gutter.
Now the media hunt is on, and they’re baying for Tate’s blood. One night of wild behaviour sees him wake up next to a gorgeous Aussie brunette—and she’s everything Tate’s afraid of.
Keeping secrets has never been this hard.

This is my first Lauren McKellar book and it definitely won’t be my last. Not knowing what to expect I went into this book blind and came out feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. With a big smile, a happy heart and a sense of completion, FAME was the perfect combination of smart, sexy and sassy. Taking me on a journey of self-discovery and self worth, Lauren McKellar evokes empathy and compassion from the reader. Ensuring that the characters fulfill their need to infuse familiarity and understanding, FAME will have you hooked till the very end.

When Madison Winters wakes up on her 23rd Birthday, her list of accomplishments is at an all time high and with the intention to add more accolades to her ever-expanding repertoire, Madison Winters life seems perfect. Until it's not.

Madison doesn’t get the promotion she was expecting and her fiancé… well his definition of commitment and forever is surprisingly unreliable. Broken and lost, Lauren McKellar brings to life a vulnerable young woman trying to figure out what happens next. Sent to a yoga retreat Madison is determined to some soul searching. Battling with the new her and the old her, she struggles to find out what it is she really wants out of life… And then comes along Tate Masters – Hollywood heartthrob. With his own goals and his own agenda, Tate Masters is determined to be Hollywood’s IT boy. Keep his image clean and his girlfriend happy.

As their paths cross Madison and Tate are fighting their attraction from the get go and with a laundry list of reasons as to why they should stay away from each other, their chemistry and passion over powers any semblance of rational thinking.

Imagine it's your birthday and instead of being the amazing day you've been waiting all year for, it sucks big time...that promotion you were expecting at work, forget about that! Your amazing fiancé, well let's just say he's not the guy you thought he was! This is exactly the situation 23 year old Madison Winters finds herself in. Instead of the promotion she was expecting at a fashion magazine she finds herself demoted and working at its "hippy" sister magazine.

The only good to come out of the demotion is a trip to a secluded island of Bali to take part in a Yoga retreat, although she's more excited about Bali, than the yoga...

"Still, it's yoga. I'll probably get bored. Or fall asleep. Or fall asleep because I'm so bored."

Tate Masters is the newest Hollywood 'it' guy and seemingly has the world at his feet - adoring fans, beautiful girlfriend and enough money to buy his sister the kind of house they always dreamed of. Tate's acting abilities transcend the screen and he manages to make his less than perfect life appear to be one we'd all be willing to swap our souls for.

The writing was beautiful, and McKellar definitely painted a picture of an idyllic Balinese island that I know I would love to visit.
My issue with the book was that it was "nice", it had nothing that really stood out and wowed me. The story kind of just coasted along from one event to the next, and the events which were meant to spark either intense emotions of happiness or sadness for me, fell short. That's not to say that I didn't connect with the characters, because I did, to a degree. I just didn't feel their sadness, happiness or frustration as much as I wanted to.

Lauren McKellar you have written a lovely tale without an ugly cry session this time around.
This story is about two strangers whom usually wouldn't meet but happen to when life is thrown in to the mix.
Madison winters is the picture of what it's supposed to look like with your life put together. Attractive fiancé, lovely apartment, and rewarding job.
Except on one of the most important days things aren't looking up for Madison winters.
After not receieving the promotion and is demoted from her dream job she comes home to find her fiancé with he's pants down literally.
Last thing she needs is to be sent on an assignment where she runs into playboy Tate Masters.

Now as for Tate masters he's life is turning to s*** as we speak, he's past catches up with he's future in a very public way. All he's trying to be is two different people, the faithful boyfriend and good brother with a bad image in the scene of Hollywood.
Can he keep everything under wraps or will everything be exposed when these two messes meet!
In my opinion this standalone is a lovely tale just the right amount of interest to keep you on your toes but also what you wouldn't expect ms Lauren McKellar to write about if you have read her other novels you know what I mean.
I'll let you be the judge of it.
