The chemistry -- and, let's be honest, the raw lust -- between Madison and Tate sizzles off the page from the first time they meet. And the sex scenes (is that a spoiler?) are scorching. *fans self*
At first I wasn't sure about Tate. He comes across as a cheat at the start of the book, and no amount of megawatt smiles and ripped muscles made up for that in my mind. Still, it's not too long before we discover more about Tate -- his reasons for doing the things he does -- and soon I was swooning and wishing for a Tate in my life too.
It turns out McKellar does sex scenes as well as she does romance. The latter is her bread and butter. It's not usually my favourite genre, but the relationship here, as embryonic as it is, is well executed. Tate and Madison discover in each other someone who will let them be real, not pushing them to do anything they don't want to or judging them.
The other thing that's worth mentioning is that the book is just downright funny. Madison attracts the worst kinds of random luck, but at the same time her approach to handling things is kind of hilarious. While she naturally grieves for her failed relationship with Mike and the consequent struggle with who she is, she's generally quite resilient and doesn't take BS from anyone. Her disdain for the trappings of "wellness" (a word I rather dislike myself ... mostly because it's just ugly, tbh) had me giggling on more than one occasion.Read more ›
Fame is full of wonderful characters, an engaging plotline, and plenty of humorous one liners.
In the beginning, we meet Madison, a 23 year old Australian girl working in the fashion magazine industry who has the worst things happen to her on her birthday. Her employer then sends her to a yoga retreat on an island off Bali to write a review and there she meets the swoon worthy Tate, an American up and coming movie star who is shooting a new film there. From here on, sparks fly, there is chemistry, and there is lots of sexy fun, but as the story moves along, both Madison and Tate transform as they figure out what it is exactly that they each want in life. Throw in some great supporting characters, some naughty sexual encounters, secrets kept, a bit of blackmail, the paparazzi, and a taste of Outback Australia, and you have a very enjoyable and fascinating story.
The leading female protagonist is Madison, and I really liked her. She was real and believable, and it was nice to see her develop as a stronger woman throughout the story and discover things about herself. The leading male character is Tate, and he was likeable too. I enjoyed the banter between him and his older sister who was also his PR person. The minor characters were very entertaining – from Madison’s best friend, to Tate’s sister, to the girls Madison befriends at the yoga retreat. And Madison’s parents made for some comical scenes, especially towards the end.
As much as I loved the characters and enjoyed the story in Fame, I just felt something was missing which prevented me from actually investing in the main characters.Read more ›
When Madison Winters walks into work one morning she is prepared for her life to change, she certainly wasn't mistaken, the cushy promotion she expected...gone...her loving fiancé...gone...catching him in a compromising position with another woman will tend to do that... in the blink of an eye everything changes, when she's sent to an exotic island for a yoga retreat she figures this might be the break from her new reality she desperately needs, I mean how much else can actually happen to her right?
"The first rule of one-night stands is that you don't stick around, not unless you're hoping for something more.Read more ›
