Book Description

Sugar and Spice . . . Not everyone's nice.

Fresh from being betrayed by one of her closest friends, new reality-television celebrity Jane Roberts has learned a few lessons. Most important: know who to trust. And inHollywood, that list is short.

Although the press is intent on creating a tabloid war between her and ex-friend/current-costar Madison Parker, Jane just wants to take control of her life. She’s started by swearing off guys and the drama that comes with them. But when her high school sweetheart Caleb and her unrequited L.A. crush Braden show up, both acting sweeter than ever, Jane has a hard timeremembering her no-boys rule. . . .

Her best friend, Scarlett, has only one guy on her mind: her new boyfriend, Liam. The girl who once thought love was a four-letter word is now head over heels. The problem is, being ona hit reality show means hanging out with other guys on-camera, and Liam isn’t too happy with pretending to play a bit part in her love life.

Just when everything feels out of control, Jane makes a shocking discovery—one that changes everyone’s definition of “reality” forever.

In her deliciously entertaining novel, television star Lauren Conrad pulls back the curtain on young Hollywood and shows that sometimes the real drama is behind the scenes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spicy, Sweet Final Chapter in Conrad's Trilogy October 8, 2010
After a surprisingly mediocre second novel in her "L.A. Candy" trilogy, Lauren Conrad has returned to form with "Sugar and Spice." She effectively pays off all the umbrella arcs set in motion in the first two novels while still bringing in fresh, fun drama that (dare I say) firmly establishes her as a fresh, interesting voice in the teenage book market.

Before I dive in, let me warn you that I will be making note of the parallels between this novel and Conrad's now defunct television show "The Hills." If you have not seen the show, then please check Wikipedia if you get confused.

"Sugar and Spice" begins with the premier party for the second season of "L.A. Candy." Jane and Scarlett (different halves of Conrad's personality) have patched up their friendship and enter the second season with mixed emotions, both wanting to be there but also wanting to embrace other ambitions. Jane's feud with Madison (Heidi) has only deepened over the hiatus thanks to Madison continuing to lie to the press about leaking explosive personal information to the press about Jane, and Jane must struggle with the fact that her side of the argument cannot be portrayed on her reality show. Oh, and Gabby has hired a publicist ready to rocket her from the D-list to the double D-list.

Conrad introduces a juicy, soapy new character in Madison's half-sister Sophie, who basically blackmails Madison onto getting a role in "L.A. Candy" after a little nipping and cutting. Conrad has wisely realized that it would have hurt Jane's character to have her sink to Madison's level in order to take her down, and her introduction of a mini-Madison brings the book a lot of life and fun.

Fun read. I wasn't expecting much from these books but got hooked after the first one. If you liked the first two then you will like this one. I just wish this wasn't the last one.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're a fan of Lauren Conrad, you'll love this book November 23, 2010
Ok, I admit it, I'm a 34yr old woman and I've read all three of the novels in the L.A. Candy series by Ms. Conrad. It's hard not to enjoy these books; especially if you are a fan of the show the Hills. Ms. Conrad's writing style is simple and pleasurable. Sugar & Spice is the final installment in her 3 part book series. We finally get to read what happens to Jane, Scarlet, and the dreaded Madison. There are some fun twists along the way very reminiscent to occurences on the Hills (ie Madison's sister is suddenly on the show through an interesting turn of events). The novel is a quick, fun read from the first to the last page. I'd definitely recommend Sugar & Spice to anyone who has read the first two novels or is a fan of the tv show The Hills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Circle October 29, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sugar and Spice is an easy read in the LA Candy Series. The series though clearly fictional, is an interesting portrayal of what living "The Hills" must have been like. The authors writing skills have improved since the first book and the storyline is much more fluid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok book, but not a great ending October 15, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading the first two books (L.A. Candy & Sweet Little Lies). But I was rather disappointed for this book, because it really didn't give the reader a great ending of the series. I found while reading this book that I wasn't as interested in the main character Jane as I had in the first two books. She couldn't make up her mind about anyone from friends to guys. I actually got annoyed that she couldn't make up her mind or stand up for herself. If you have read the first two books you will probably want to read this so that you can finish the series, but don't expect to enjoy it as much as the first two.

3.0 out of 5 stars liked the book but not the ending April 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I felt like after reading all 3 the whole thing with Jane and Braden left me empty. It was disappointing. It also wrapped up too fast and suddenly. Other than that, it was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Lauren Conrad definitely found another calling beyond reality...
A look into the"reality" of reality tv. I wouldn't be amazed if some of this were really true.
Great summer read.
Definitely makes me miss "The Hills"!

I guess that I shouldn't have expected her writing to be any more "deep" than her TV series. This book is essentially a written version of her "Hills" reality show. Read more
