How do you choose what book you’re reading next?

Well, I’m into romance books, like The Fault In Our Stars and Anna And the French Kiss, so I guess just by reading the summary.

Who is the boy or girl character that makes you swoon the most?


How much does cover art influence you?

A little bit, but the cover doesn’t really matter to me because it’s about the story under it.

Which Famous in Love character would you want to have ice cream with and why?

Rainer because of the triple S standard: sweet, sexy, and smart.

The romantic story of a girl who gets plucked from obscurity to star in the next major feature film franchise based on a book and the ensuing love triangles she gets entangled in on—-and off screen.

Meet Paige Townsen, Rainer Devon, and Jordan Wilder…

When Paige Townsen, a young unknown, gets cast in the movie adaptation of a blockbuster book series, her life changes practically overnight. Within a month, Paige has traded the quiet streets of her hometown for a crowded movie set on the shores of Maui, and is spending quality time with her co-star Rainer Devon, one of People’s Sexiest Men Alive. But when troubled star Jordan Wilder lands the role of the other point in the movie’s famous love triangle, Paige’s crazy new life gets even crazier.

In this coming-of-age romance inspired by the kind of celeb hookups that get clever nicknames and a million page views, Paige must figure out who she is – and who she wants – while the whole world watches.
