More Than Famous
(The Famous Novels #2)
by Kahlen Aymes
Cover created by Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations
Fame is a bitch… And a half.
Being a big star has its perks, but Caden Carlisle is in love with his costar, Brooklyn Halloway, and the movie studio demands that they keep it under wraps to ensure big box office success.
Cade always disliked the spotlight, preferring to focus on the work, but coupled with the ruthless stalking of rabid paparazzi, the secrecy forced upon his new and fragile relationship, and the vindictive games of others, celebrity status turns into a curse.
Can the roller coaster of emotions bring them closer still, or will jealousy and distance rip them apart forever?
Kahlen Aymes turns up the heat and cranks up the angst in FAMOUS Novel Two; the continuation of Cade and Brook’s incredible love story… Because there’s more to fame than meets the eye.

If you’re looking for that really sweet and romantic love story between two actors who will do just about anything to overcome the obstacles and hurdles that come their way just to be together, then this is the book for you!!
More Than Famous is the second book in Kahlen Aymes Famous Series. This book was filled with a lot of love and romance, but also a lot of drama and angst (Almost too much in my opinion)
This story takes off right where the first book ended. This is the love story of two actors , Cade and Brooklyn, who are actually filming together in the Remembrance Trilogy movies. To say that Cade and Brook’s road to happiness is a tough one is an understatement. These two face a lot of challenges along the way, mostly by people who are trying to separate them.
As with the first book (Famous), Kahlen does a great job drawing you into Cade and Brooklyn’s world. There is a reason why I will read anything Kahlen Aymes writes. To me her books are what fiction and fantasy are truly about. She creates a story and a Hero that we would all love to live and meet 😉 She knows how to draw out every emotion a reader has. You will laugh, cry, yell and fall in love while reading this book. I thought this was a good middle book in the series.
I only have a couple things that I wish were different. One is I thought that this book could’ve been a little bit shorter. The real drama began around the 40% mark of the book and never really let up. Only the players in the drama switched up. I thought that once things got cleared up in the Wendy scandal that things would get a little better, but really they didn’t and David was then the instigator for the drama for the rest of the book. I truly felt that all this drama could’ve been shortened and something else could’ve been the focus of the story. I have never been a huge fan of drawn out drama and angst. Plus during this time, I really didn’t like Brook much. I felt her age really showed through during all the drama, (She is 18 in this story). My only other complaint was that I felt the storyline mimicked the third book in the Remembrance Trilogy a little too much, I didn’t feel this storyline was much different or unique. I would’ve liked to see something else cause the drama besides a scorned person.
Now even though it seems like I may have not liked this book, I really did!!! I always get sucked into Kahlen’s writing world when I read her books. I had a hard time putting this one down and when I wasn’t reading I was constantly thinking about Cade and Brook and the turmoil they were going through.
As with the first book, More Than Famous ends with Brook and Cade in a good place but with a too be continued ending. There is definitely more of their story to come. I just hope that book three (Beyond Famous) isn’t full of all the extra drama this one was. I really hope Wendy and David are out of the picture too!!!
So if you are a fan of Kahlen Aymes’s, then you don’t want to miss this new series!!! Or if you are a fan of those over the top mushy, lovey, dovey, fairytale romances, that have a lot of drama and angst, then this is the book to read!!!
