At 560 pages it looked an average size book and the cover had a rather slender and glamorous woman posing on a sun lounger, it looked like just my kind of book. Thankfully as soon as you start reading you are drawn into the fabulous world of the stars in the book. Sabrina Leon is the first character we meet and she is sassy, strong and has a very big mouth. Of course I instantly liked her!
We also meet the rather handsome but slightly brooding Viorel who is also an actor looking for his next big part. Dorian Razmirez is the glue that bonds them all together. With his rival Director Harry Greene snapping at his ankles, Dorian is determined to get his new film off the ground with the stars he thinks will make or break his movie.
Tish Crewe is a woman that runs her own orphanage in Romania and is called back home to England to try and salvage the family home that her brother now owns. With her brother off gallivanting Tish decides to take her son Abel and stay the summer back at Loxley Hall and try to repair and salvage what is left of the beautiful stately home that has been in her family for many years.
As the movie Dorian is making coincides with Tish's life, the fireworks really begin. I literally couldn't put this book down. You could almost feel the tension, tantrums and inevitable upheaval between the characters coming. The characters were all written so well that I liked each of them for various reasons and although none of them were perfect they all had redeeming qualities.Read more ›
Sabrina- was picked for fame a very young age, fame getting a better of her, which the leads her astray and a video shocker brings its all crashing down with a bump. Until Dorian gives her a chance of playing lead role in Wuthering Heights but the catch is she will not get paid. Will this give her fame another boost.
Dorian gets his A listed lead man to play Heathcliffe - Viorel, but of a cost of 5 millon pounds.
All Dorian needs to find his perfect English country house. But with the perfect english country house could there be trouble with the locals especially with the lady of the house.
Fame centered around the movie industry and the players in Hollywood from directors competing for the Academy Awards for best director and best picture, to the young, beautiful, talented and troubled actors, to the jealous and insecure spouses, to the ins and outs of creating and funding a movie. There was romance, intrigue, steamy sex, cat fights and back stabbing. There were also twists and turns and heart warming character development. I loved how unpredictable it was and that even though I knew how I wanted things to end up, I was never quite sure I was on track with the author. I'm happy to say that as far as the romantic elements were concerned, the author did not disappoint me at all.
Fame reminded me of the books I used to read in the late 1980s and early 1990s from Jackie Collins (Lucky), Judith Krantz (I'll Take Manhattan) and Sidney Sheldon (Master of the Game). I didn't think authors wrote those types of books anymore but I am so glad to find I was wrong. And I might have to re-read the above books now. Very happy to have discovered Ms. Bagshawe and cannot wait to read more from this extremely talented author.

Hollywood trials and tribulations are always interesting. This book had some characters you wouldn't have minded if you had gotten to know.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
This book has more twists and turns than a movie. Just when you think you have all the relationships figured out, Bagshawe throws another curve. Very satisfying story.Published 2 months ago by Nancy J. Houck
