Review: RELATIVELY FAMOUS by Heather Leigh

An accidental fall is how Sydney meets Drew and the attraction begins. According to Syd, Drew is the most gorgeous, perfect specimen, which, of course, she obsesses over.

Syd is the daughter of an America’s Sweetheart actress and Bad Boy model—she was basically born under the Hollywood lights. This is why she has learned to be wary of everyone because they use you to get what they want. Her “famous” status has scarred Sydney, traumatizing her from ever getting close to anyone. Her coping method: escape from life and hide from the media.

All in the POV of Sydney, this is the love story of Sydney and Drew. It had a bit of a slow start (in fact, Drew doesn’t appear again until like chapter 5 or 6.)

I thought Sydney was being too melodramatic about the media frenzy and people discovering who she is. For godsakes, you can’t hide your head in the sand forever. She lets the tabloids dictate her life, which is not good. Also, she’s too horny for Drew. All she thinks about is ripping off his clothes the second she sees him. The whole thing was pretty much a sappy montage of romance and hot sex.

The romance and the writing were decent, but the overall story didn’t quite compel me enough.

My rating : 3 stars
