Synopsis from Goodreads
On the heels of Mary James leaked sex tape – totally a fake one to make her boyfriend jealous she might add- she needs some PR help if she ever wants her acting career to end up in a fiery hell like her love life.
Chris Garcia has been working his way up from mailroom clerk to junior associate at Tate & Cane and now to get to the next rung of the corporate ladder he has to take on the firm’s toughest client: Mary James.
With a little help from a nosey Aunt Rosita and Mama Garcia, the two decide the best way to move forward is simple: a fake relationship.
But what happens when something fake gets to be too real and FAME gets involved?
Famed is pretty much what you would expect from a fake relationship turned real plot-line. However, the characters are cute, sweet and endearing giving the novella charming edge to it you can’t help but fall in love with.
Mary has got herself into a deep hole when a fake sex tape gets hacked from her email. Her publicity people aren’t right for her believing the worst about her without actually supporting Mary in the most embarrassing time of her life. Determined to work with people she can trust forces Mary to steam through PR over the next six months leaving her no other option but to work with Chris.
I really liked the tenuous link to Kendall Ryan’s Hitched by way of the PR company Chris works for.
Chris is a model-wannabe that has altered his dreams of fame in front of the camera to embrace his gift at social media. While he does have a player vibe at he beginning this is soon dispelled by his sweet side where his family is concerned.
When pheromones and emotions get involved, Chris and Mary have to work together to make something fake into something real. Mary is understandably pessimistic about relationships especially where show business and fame is concerned. Can Chris convince her that what they have is worth being Famed for!!!!
