Book Review: Under the Lights

Title Under the Lights

Series Daylight Falls, book 2

Author Dahlia Adler

Release Date June 30, 2015

Josh Chester loves being a Hollywood bad boy, coasting on his good looks, his parties, his parents' wealth, and the occasional modeling gig. But his laid-back lifestyle is about to change. To help out his best friend, Liam, he joins his hit teen TV show, Daylight Falls...opposite Vanessa Park, the one actor immune to his charms. (Not that he's trying to charm her, of course.) Meanwhile, his drama-queen mother blackmails him into a new family reality TV show, with Josh in the starring role. Now that he's in the spotlight—on everyone's terms but his own—Josh has to decide whether a life as a superstar is the one he really wants.

Vanessa Park has always been certain about her path as an actor, despite her parents' disapproval. But with all her relationships currently in upheaval, she's painfully uncertain about everything else. When she meets her new career handler, Brianna, Van is relieved to have found someone she can rely on, now that her BFF, Ally, is at college across the country. But as feelings unexpectedly evolve beyond friendship, Van's life reaches a whole new level of confusing. And she'll have to choose between the one thing she's always loved...and the person she never imagined she could.

I liked Behind the Scenes, but Under the Lights was so much better!

This book is rather unique in the sense that we're getting two points of view, but Josh isn't Vanessa's love interest. It might seem strange when you think about it, but it's not. It actually works well. Josh and Vanessa's stories intertwine and make total sense together.

Josh and Vanessa are really awesome. It was cool seeing them in Behind the Scenes, but sooo much better when the story focuses on them. They are such interesting characters (more so than Ally, honestly). Josh was great! I love his attitude and his witty dialogue is full of so much win. And Vanessa is pretty amazing, too. I loved her F/F romance. It was incredibly swoon-worthy!

Overall, definitely a great book!


5 out of 5 stars
