Release Blitz + Review: The F List by Alessandra Torre

A romance about two celebrities who can't stand - or stay away from - each other.There was a lot I did to get to this point, to get 42 million followers. Some of it I was proud of, most of it I wasn't.

There was a group of us, all internet celebrities, and everyone wanted in, which is how six of us ended up living in this mansion, a camera always on, the public always watching. Two months and nine carefully scripted TV episodes that would get us more of the three F’s we were desperately chasing.

Fame. Fortune. Followers.

I knew my role. I was Emma, the unlikeable one. The dark villain with the devious smile. The package of dynamite that would blow up any chance of peaceful living and harmony.

Cash knew his role. He was the good guy. The lovable one. The one that everyone, even the darkest cast member of them all, would fall in love with.

They were supposed to just be roles.
None of it was supposed to be real.

My heart didn't get that memo.

The F List is about Emma and her dream is to be rich and famous. This is a dream of a lot of young girls and this social media era has really brought this to a whole another level. This books gives us a look into the background of what these people would do to get more followers. Emma is the unlikable one and she is okay with that. I have to say that I really didn't like her, so she played her role really well. Cash who is the golden boy, the son of a Hollywood star, and has been in the limelight since the moment he was born. Emma loves the attention while Cash rather has less of it. I personally didn't really enjoy the first half the book, I just couldn't connect with Emma on any level, so that lessened my enjoyment of the story. The moment the filming for the reality show started, the story picked up. Also I started seeing a different side to Emma, and I began to warm up to her. There was also one side-character that completely stole my heart, and I loved his interactions with Emma. You'll know who I am talking about when you meet him.

I just didn't have enough time to fully connect to the main characters Emma and Cash. The moment these two started getting together, we were already at the last quarter of the book. I wanted to spend more time with them and see them grow more as a couple and as individuals. I didn't fully believe in their love/romance because it was rushed at the end. This is the reason I am giving this a three star rating, because for the rest it was a solid light romance, with funny moments. Also the ending felt a bit unrealistic, and no way that they can keep living like that for the rest of their lives, especially in this era. The story was unique and not something I had read before, and I wouldn't mind reading more books in a reality tv show setting. The story was well-written, which was to be expected because Alessandra Torre is a great author. I look forward to her writing more of these light and fun romances.
