{Blog Tour Review and GIVEAWAY}: From Fame to Shame by Veronica Blade


From Fame to Shame by Veronica Blade
Pages: 125
Publisher: Crush Publishing
Genre: YA Contemp Romance

When good-girl Maddie switches places with her famous bad-girl twin Jackie, she has some pretty high stilettos to fill.
Despite the danger of tabloid drama if their identity swap is discovered, Maddie has to save her sister's butt. When Jackie’s ex-boyfriend shows up with a rekindled spark for “Jackie,” his deep gray eyes and sweet kisses make Maddie's heart thumpety thump. But dating the guy who dumped her sister is a no-no. Too bad Dallas isn’t used to girls saying no. What will happen when he discovers Maddie’s deception?
Guys, it's no secret that I'm Veronica Blade's #1 fan. Like, no one loves her books more than I do. That is a true fact, and I will fight anyone who tries to step up in here and say otherwise.

Since I read all of Veronica's books at lightning speed, they only last me a few hours at the most, which makes me sad when she's my favorite author. Luckily for me, Veronica is literally a writing machine, and is churning out books almost as fast as I can read them! When From Fame to Shame finally got released, it  was like the book fairy had come and granted my wishes. Or like Santa Clause decided to stop by and left a present on my Kindle.

I absolutely loved From Fame to Shame. It's actually my favorite book from Veronica for the moment (I say that because the next book I read from Veronica will undoubtedly become my favorite). I'm not usually a fan of contemporary, but FFTS was written so well and with such awesome characters that I couldn't help but love it! How cool would it be to switch places with your famous twin sister? I know I would love it, but the funny thing is that Maddie didn't. Well, at first she didn't. She didn't really like all the glamour and attention that comes with life in the public eye, and I liked that about her because it made her down to earth. Of course, it's difficult not to love the spotlight when there's a certain hottie that wants to share it with you. *dreamy sigh*

DALLAS!


Dallas is a famous actor who just so happens to be the ex-boyfriend of Maddie's sister, Jackie. Dallas and Jackie didn't really have chemistry, so they mutually broke it off. But once Maddie fills in for her sister, Dallas is definitely feeling the spark that wasn't there before! I'm amazed Maddie was able to say no to him for so long! Honestly, if I had him trying to date me, I'd just rip his clothes off and jump his bones! He's so.... sweet, charming, charismatic, and thoughtful. But then other times, he literally exudes raw male sexuality. There was this one scene where Maddie plays photographer and takes some pictures of Dallas for his cover shot or resume or whatever (you'd think I would know this being and actress, but I digress) and he's in white pants and a white shirt--UNBUTTONED!--and he's on his bed, and it was just amazing.


Honestly guys, please don't make me beg. Buy From Fame to Shame, read it, and enjoy it, because I know you will. I'll get down on my knees and grovel if I have to, but I don't think I will. I think the promise of Dallas is enough. ;) Seriously though, it's like $0.99 for Kindle, so just buy it! And it's a really quick read, being a novella, so it's like 125 pages.

From Fame to Shame gets 5 out of 5 stars!
