Amanda Beiler is a 20-year-old Amish woman who is on her way back home to Lititz, Pennsylvania from another Amish community in Ohio. She makes a stop in New York City where she is hit by a car while crossing the street. The car belongs to none other than Alejandro Diaz, a rap music sensation who is famous everywhere he goes. Alejandro's stage name is Viper and he leads a life of concerts, touring, and women. Lately, though, Alejandro has been feeling tired of always being in the spotlight. He feels horrible that his car hit Amanda and makes sure she receives the best care at the hospital and even accompanies her back to her family's farm. The thing is, Amanda and Alejandro belong to two completely different worlds but what happens when these two worlds collide?
Plain Fame is a quick, sweet, clean romance that drew me in right from the start. I tore through it and am already planning on starting the second book right away. I normally hold off a bit so I can savor a series but that will not be happening with this series! As I mentioned, this is a clean romance so if you prefer to read romances without a lot of graphic details and profanity, this would be an excellent choice. I am also very happy to see that Sarah Price has a number of Amish novels which I will be looking at purchasing in the near future as well. I definitely recommend this novel to anyone wanting a good, tame romance!
I have been wanting to read this series seemingly forever, and I finally finished the first delectable book last night! With palatable romantic tension between a young Amish woman and a handsome Cuban superstar -- who by the way made my heart do strange flip floppy things -- this non-typical Amish story is guaranteed to keep the reader glued to its pages! I'm terribly anxious to see how things work out with Amanda and Alejandro in the next four books in this continuing saga. Sarah Price is a masterful storyteller who writes out of the box Amish fiction filled with realism and excitement!
Amanda (an Amish girl) is crossing the street in New York City and an accident occurs that causes her and Alejandro( an famous Cuban Hip Hop singer) to met. This meeting changes both of their lives. Alejandro decides to take Amanda back home to Pennsylvania himself not thinking of the damage it can do to the small Amish community. At the end of this book Amanda must make a choice! I won't tell you want the choice is because I want you to read this book and find out yourself and if you do, maybe you can tell me if you think she made the right choice! Now on to the book!

It started off promising and to me didn't start going wrong until Alejandro and Amanda got back to Pennsylvania. The main issue I had was that a lot of things were repeated about the characters pasts and the area and Amish life style, and I don't mean once or twice. If I'm told something in a book I don't need to be told three or four times. I get the Amish are plain, and I get that Alejandro is Cuban, I didn't need to know multiple times.
The other thing that upset me was the same problem I come across when I do come across a problem in a religious book; the double standards. I can't say what without spoiling it. But I thought religion was about community, sticking together and helping each other. NOT about abandoning one of your own because other people get upset and annoyed. I'm sorry but that disgusted me.
What I can say is I loved the romance. I loved the chemistry between Amanda and Alejandro and her ability to understand and not judge him for his past. I loved Amanda's open-mindedness and I will conclude with this: If the rest of the world were as open-minded as Amanda the world would be a much brighter place.
I'm pretty conflicted after this book. But I don't think I'll be reading the rest of the series
