Spun - Catherine McKenzie

4.5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Life has been rough for starlet Amber since leaving rehab. She’s been two years sober, but no one seems to believe her -- not the gossip media, not casting agents, and most certainly not her spotlight-loving parents. With her friendships ruined by betrayal and her career at a standstill, Amber’s just trying to get her life back on track. It doesn’t help that her former love, movie star Connor Parks, keeps trying to draw Amber back in, not just to their relationship but to his hard-partying ways. One fateful night, Amber breaks down and agrees to join him on board his private jet as it readies for take-off -- a decision that will change her life forever and expose her to a whole new level of scrutiny and heartbreak.

MY REVIEW -
Oh this is just the kind of book I like - full of snark and sarcasm! This is a short Novella sequel to "Spin". I did not get a chance to read that one- BUT NOW I HAVE TO! I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. It was very chick-lit-ish, which I love. It didn't take me long to devour this little gem.

This story very much reminded me of the "LA Candy series" by Lauren Conrad - and I loved that series! I love reading about rich girls that act like brats, LOL. So unlike my own life.

This story is fun fun fun, but it is also kind of sad and does make you feel sorry for Amber as she struggles with her recovery from drugs and alcohol. She seemed very real to me. I love the way she takes control of her own life and really does want to get her act together. And I love how she stayed strong through the whole story - Oh heck I just loved Amber, period!
Excellent character development!

Great job Catherine for another book well done!
