Release Date: September 11, 2015 from Prism Book Group
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.
Who is The Mamarazzi?
Who is the one behind the disguise?
Danica is doing what she can, taking pictures of celebrities, to make a living. Her first love is photography and she has big plans and dreams, but must support her sick mother. How can she come out from behind her disguise and be the daughter any mother would be proud of?
Eliot is the big star and he has his eyes on Danica, from the first moment she works as an extra on set of his new hit show.
Heat, sparks, and water. She is nervous to be around him and is pleased to find out he is a complete catch, unlike his co-star.
The two of them are powerless to fight their mutual attraction, as Eliot shows her the acting ropes, but her secret threatens to blow it all apart.
She must get the perfect shot. What is she willing to risk for that?
She discovers someone else’s secret and there is someone out to destroy any chance she might have for happiness with Eliot.
I read this story, in nearly one sitting. It is a sweet read and William’s writing style makes you route for Danica and Eliot, from that first connection on set.
Hollywood chews and spits out many, and it’s due to William’s writing and her love story, given to two deserving characters, that makes Mamarazzi stand out.
It’s a fabulous reveal of the hidden world of Hollywood paparazzi and with the twists and turns of a love story, put to the test.
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…
