My Review of Mamarazzi

 
Having already read two other books by this author, I was excited when she asked me if I’d like to read and review Mamarazzi. It did not disappoint. In fact, this book had me hooked from the opening line. Brooke has a real talent for creating layered and interesting characters that you want to root for and Danica Bennett was one of them.

 
Danica’s uses a fake identity, the Mamarazzi  to take photos of celebrities in secret and sell them to make a living. However, she dreams of becoming a professional photographer someday. When she stumbles upon an acting gig and finds herself falling for one of her co-stars, Danica struggles even harder to keep her fake identity as the Mamarazzi a secret. If it comes out, it could ruin her career and tear her from the man she loves.

 
I’ve never read a book quite like Mamarazzi and enjoyed that it took the viewpoint of one of the paparazzi. This angle made the storyline interesting and original. I loved the two main characters because they were both much more than they seemed and came from opposite sides of “the camera” you might say. The romance was sweet and clean, with just enough suspense to keep me flipping through chapters. This one’s a five star read for me!
 

 Summary

Danica Bennett isn't sure what she hates more...her job or the fact that she's good at it.  As one of the many Hollywood paparazzi, she lives her life incognito and sneaks around trying to get the best shot of the latest star.  When she is mistaken for an extra on a new, up and coming TV show, her own star rises and she becomes the one being photographed.  Add that to the fact that she's falling for her co-star, Eliot Lane, and Danica is in a whole heap of trouble.

Note from the Author on the book's inspiration:
 
I've always been fascinated by the Hollywood life and the idea that "they" are different from "us." The idea for Mamarazzi has been with me for a long time. I'm not even exactly sure when I came up with it, but in college, I had a screenwriting class and I had to write a portion of a screenplay. I wrote "Paparazzi," which was the same general idea only with a male lead character. When I began writing romantic comedy, the idea came back to me and I decided to chance the main character to a female and call it "Mamarazzi." I even had a naming contest so that facebook fans and blog readers could name the characters in the book. Every character in the novel is reader named and approved! Overall, I wanted to examine what happens when you take someone from one side of the fence and plop them on the other side. In the end, famous or not, we're all just people. And in this book, they all have secrets...
