Review: Fame and Privilege

★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

From Goodreads:

Billionaire Jenn Cooper has run her own movie studio for the last 3 years with the utmost success. Everything in her life has been easy due to the wealth and privilege she's been afforded. Ryan Price is a young and talented manager in Hollywood who represents up-and-coming starlet Julia Belle. What will happen when Price and Cooper try to collaborate on one of Hollywood's most promising stories to date? Let's just say that things in Hollywood never follow the script.

The title says it all! Fame and Privilege tells the story of instant-love between two people and how they try to resist each other to save their reputations.

Jenn Cooper is famous for her success in the film industry. She barely makes mistakes or has any feature that could be considered as a fault. Enter Ryan Price, a handsome agent for Hollywood's rising star Julia Belle. Jenn and Ryan feel the attraction on first sight and neither of them can stay put when the tension between them rises. 

Let's be honest here: Fame and Privilege is a good book to read poolside without too many expectations for a complex plot or character development. The plot is quite predictable and the happy for now ending gives the reader the content feel they probably are looking for when they picked the book up. 

I got a little annoyed by the brainless moments in the book. Both the characters abandon everything when they see each other, there's nothing else in their minds apart from the attraction and lust for the other at the physical level. The real romance part comes into picture much later. What keeps the characters together the period of time they can't be together? I honestly can't answer that question even after reading the book. 

Like I said earlier, this book is perfect if you are looking for something to read by the pool and doesn't require a complex thought process to understand the plot. Which, sometimes, is exactly what we need.
