Uh-oh. I think I may add India Lee to my list of favorite authors. I liked this so much I feel it worthy of five stars!

If you've ever lost yourself for hours on ONTD (I know I sure did), you will love this. See, Amanda is one of us. And even though her story is unbelievable beyond the pages of a book or a rom-com movie, it's really engaging and wonderful, with a Cinderella-but-not-quite feel. Because Amanda, in fact, hates her prince charming with burning passion. But after being jilted and cheated on by her best friend and boyfriend, shunned by the small town she lives in, she resorts to having to overcome that dislike in order to prove everyone wrong.

Liam stole my heart from that first HDU appearance. I don't know why - usually I'd go all Amanda on a story like that, he IS a womanizing douchelord (btw, brilliant!). But it's because of this that you just know that you're in for a good read, and it turned out to be exactly that.

Amanda is witty and funny and loyal and sweet despite trying to pass herself off as something else. I loved her. After all that happened with Megan and Brandtwhatshisname, I really thought she deserved a break.
And Liam is just as wonderful once you get to know him better.

I could go on, and on, and on about how much I liked the dynamic between Amanda and Liam from that very first e-mail, trying to outplay each other. To the easy relationship that they fell into. To the very last scene because it was so appropriate.

And with a cast of interesting supporting characters, you are never bored. I must admit, I was intrigued by Casey and if she turns out to prove wrong on accusations. And I loved Ian because he gave off that "friend material" vibe.

HDU by India Lee was such an entertaining read and took a unique turn on the whole "dating a celebrity" novels that have been written lately.

HDU is about 23 year-old Amanda, who is back home living with her parents after her childhood best friend and roommate stole her boyfriend. After feeling like a complete failure in her small Missouri town, not letting others know the truth about the town's "perfect girl" who is really a backstabbing friend. Amanda is left with nothing but the celebrity blog she helps moderate (I totally think this sounded like the famous OhNoTheyDidn't blog on livejournal's site).

Amanda receives a message from the famous heartthrob Liam (I pictured Zac Efron as Liam, whose with me on this?), who needs a favor. Amanda is intrigued and thinks this "favor" could be the ticket to NYC and away from it all. Liam needs to find a normal girl to date for publicity purposes and Amanda is his girl. The two take on New York and the paparazzi and become Liamanda (totally cute). As their "relationship" starts to turn into more, of course drama must be around the corner and everything crumbles apart. The story ends on a high but definitely leaves a lot of questions unanswered with the need to know more. I am so glad Ms. Lee will be writing HDU #2, I think I might go nuts a bit not knowing where Liamanda go next in their relationship.

I loved the original story line, yes a book about a normal girl falling in love with a hot celebrity guy isn't original but how the plot came about and the characters made it special. I really liked Amanda and was rooting for her the entire time.

This story is about Amanda, a small town girl, who spends her days and nights moderating a celebrity gossip site. She's all about feeding the gossip sites and mocking celebrities (especially one Liam Brody)until one day Liam contacts her as a moderator on the HDU site and asks her to give him a break, because he's working on getting a role in a serious movie that means a lot to him.
He surprises Amanda with his video charm and she offers a solution - stop dating trampy looking models and date a regular girl, and it will do wonders for you image.

A deal is struck and a contract signed and Amanda becomes that girl.

I really loved the playful banter between Liam and Amanda, and the fact that their relationship stayed completely platonic for so long. Amanda never tried to throw herself at him and in fact never forced herself on him at all. (not to say other girls didn't... sheesh). At first it's all rainbows and unicorns when they debut their relationship, but now Amanda is on the receiving end of the celebrity gossip and it's not as nice as being on the giving end. I liked that the book showed both sides of the gossip mongering, and you got to see how people are adversely affected by it, and what people do to be famous.

My one problem with the book is the random skipping ahead. e.g. a chapter will end with someone saying something at dinner or something to that extent and the next chapter starts with Amanda waking up in bed (maybe even 4 days later) - but what happened in between!? and what happened right after Liam says something so bold or flirty!? It could be just me - but I'm all about the details and curious about the 'in between' parts that I feel I've missed.

I loved the ending.
