Seven books about fame

Sarah Skilton the author of two young adult novels, Bruised and High & Dry, and the adult novels, Club Deception and the newly released Fame Adjacent.

At the B&N Reads blog she tagged seven new, recent, and upcoming books "in which a main character is either immersed in showbiz or otherwise famous." One title on the list:
Meet Cute, by Helena Hunting

How perfect is that cover? The book inside is equally enthralling. Back in law school, the normally cool and collected Kailyn Flowers was shocked to bump into former actor Daxton Hughes—aka, her teenage crush from the TV series It’s My Life—and fangirled all over him. When the dust and embarrassment settled, the two became classroom buddies, until Daxton ruined everything (or so Kailyn thinks). Now it’s several years later, and Kailyn finds herself helping Daxton’s family during a crisis, and all their old feelings return to the surface. But just because they once had a meet cute of epic proportions doesn’t mean a real romance could ever follow, does it? This heartfelt, beautiful story about the ways we lean on other people after tragedy made me swoon, laugh, and cry.
