Review :

“Flirting with Fame” is a sweet romance by Samantha Joyce. Basically this story has everything a book needs to take the reader away.

The writing is good and the plot well developed .
I can honestly recommend the book to a reader who wants to read something light.
On the other hand if you are a reader like me you might experience a lack of emotion.
The story is intriguing enough to capture your attention and contains many situations where the reader should have felt something – but I was missing out on actual feelings during reading the book.
I can not really pinpoint the reason as the writing is really good so I am kind of embarrassed to admit that I could not connect with the characters in the way I needed to personally.
But I assume that this is only me and that most other readers will enjoy this as a light and easy romance – so go ahead and give it a try
