In the new series by television star and fashion designer Lauren Conrad, fame can be found behind any door. You just have to know where to look for it.

Nineteen-year-old Madison Parker made a name for herself as best frenemy of girl-next-door Jane Roberts on the hot reality show L.A. Candy. Now Madison's ready for her turn in the spotlight and she'll stop at nothing to get it. Sure, she's the star of a new show, but with backstabbing friends and suspicious family members trying to bring her down, Madison has her work cut out for her. Plus, there's a new nice girl in "reality" town—aspiring actress Carmen Curtis, the daughter of Hollywood royalty—and she's a lot more experienced at playing the fame game. . . . When the cameras start rolling, whose star will shine brighter?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to put down The first book to the L.A. Candy spin-off trilogy. I loved all of Lauren Conrad's novels well written and hard to put down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok. I loved the LA Candy series so I thought it would be a good idea to check this one out. Madison is the star of this book. Madison seems more vulnerable compared to the LA Candy series and based on the last few pages she really does care about her family. Gaby is consistent in being the ditzy character. I really like Kate, the struggling musician, and I think her character will develop nicely throughout the series. I like Carmen as well. Even though her parents are Hollywood royalty she manages to remain down to earth. I would have liked to have a few chapters in Gaby's point of view to understand why she's so obsessed with being extremely thin to the point where it seems like she has a problem. I read this in 2012. I don't remember why I wasn't compelled to read the rest of the series. I think it's because Madison, my least favorite character became the main one. I would pick the LA Candy series over this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good I enjoyed this but since Madison wasn't one of my favourite characters from the previous novels I didn't love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay.. The Fame Game starts off with Madison Parker, a character also in Lauren Conrad?s other books L.A. Candy. She gets offered a spot on a new reality show called The Fame Game about four girls trying to make it big in Hollywood. Her fellow castmates include Gaby, Kate and Carmen. Carmen is the daughter of celebrity A-listers, and Madison just can?t handle the fact that she is up against a star whose star burns brighter than her own. So I haven?t read L. A. Candy and I don?t plan to. I?m not one to read books that are full of Gucci one liners and so-called friends stab each other in the back trying to get ahead. I?ve watched The Hills, and yes it was entertaining but the tv show was a lot better than reading a book about people?s exploits. I couldn?t help but cringe as I read. There was very little plot. I only wished Madison was as bitchy as she sounded, and schemes herself into being the spotlight. Sure her father who abandoned her and her sister who messed with her life came back into her life was entertaining but it wasn?t enough. Every character except sweetheart Kate were into designer clothes, cars and trips and had no ounce of kindness. Although Carmen is kinder than most she still did something shady enough to not gain my trust. I?d like to say I?m gunning for Kate Meyers to be the star and still be true self while not letting fame and fortune faze her. The writing is decent to say the least. We get into each of their heads including producer Trevor who wants nothing more than a hit reality show and money in the bank. I?m disappointed at the lack of back stabbing and scheming just because the blurb at the back hinted there would be. Lauren Conrad is definitely immersed in how reality shows are made and you can tell her own experience had shadowed what her characters go through.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lauren Conrad - The Fame Game It was a good book. I was still able to understand the plot without having to read the second and third books of the L.A. Candy series!
