L.A. Candy is a deliciously entertaining novel about what it's like to come of age in Hollywood while starring in a reality TV show, written by a young woman who has experienced it all firsthand: Lauren Conrad.

Fashion designer and TV personality Lauren Conrad brings her insider knowledge of the highs and lows of life in the spotlight to this juicy New York Times bestselling series.

Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer...everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun.

When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a "reality version of Sex and the City," they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please!

Soon Jane is TV's hottest star. Fame brings more than she ever imagined possible for a girl from Santa Barbara--free designer clothes, the choicest tables at the most exclusive clubs, invites to Hollywood premieres--and she's lapping up the VIP treatment with her eclectic entourage of new pals. But those same friends who are always up for a wild night are also out for a piece of Jane's spotlight.

In a city filled with people chasing after their dreams, it's not long before Jane wakes up to the reality that everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be.

I was hoping for juicy drama like her show, "The Hills"... boy was this a let down !!! This book contained maybe 2% drama. SO BORING. Major disappointment.

The L.A. Candy series is AMAZING! I recommend this book\series to anyone who likes to read about teenage love and drama because these books are filled with it! :D Don't forget to read the serires after L.A. Candy "The Fame Game" which is all about Madison and her side of the story since you already heard Jane's. This book\series made me fall in love with reading, and to be honest i never really like reading until a read Lauren Conrad's unique and fascinating books:) so overall i loved reading these books and i hope you do too! ;)

As much as I love LC from the Hills, this was not very good. The writing itself was pretty terrible. And as much as I love the show "The Hills", I was expecting more than just that in this book. Somehow Lauren managed to give her costars new names, write up the first few episodes of "The Hills", and made it a bestseller. Bravo, LC...

Pretty good. I liked the plot and loved how fast it moves; before I knew it I was on the last page.

Just let me say it was possibly one of my most favourite books from my intire life! It was interesting and always full of drama. I agree that the Point Of Views were switching around a whole heck lot, but it was easy to underdstand and a whole heck of fun!
