In the final book of the hit series L.A. Candy, Jane Roberts is a bona fide celebrity—she’s got the VIP treatment, couture clothes, and starlet looks. She also has the tabloid scandals, fake friends, and relentless paparazzi. Having learned a few things from her first season on the air, Jane is trying to surround herself with the people who she knows love her for her…and take a break from boys—since they’ve been nothing but trouble. But when her high school sweetheart Caleb and her unrequited L.A. crush Braden show up, both looking cuter and acting sweeter than ever, Jane has a hard time remembering her no-boys rule….

Just when everything feels out of control, Jane makes a shocking discovery. And what she finds changes everyone’s definition of “reality” forever.

In her deliciously entertaining novel, television star Lauren Conrad pulls the curtain back on young Hollywood and shows that sometimes the real drama is behind the scenes.

The last book in the LA Candy series felt a little rushed. I feel like there were a lot of missed opportunities and of the three books this is the one I remember the least (which is terrible since it is the one I would have read most recently). You do get to see a different kind of drama in this book, boy drama! It was a nice change in comparison to the she said/she said in the first two novels.
I do remember being very disappointed at the ending. I really wished the series continued with the girls setting off into their careers. I feel like the stories would have gotten better with real plot lines rather than drama and for me would be more relatable as an adult.
There isn’t a lot to say about this book, again, sad. You get a good feel in this novel who is who (from The Hills show) and if you want a little more there is another series she wrote that has the same themes and feel following one of the side characters (I believe Maddison).
If you want a simple, mindless read give this series a try. Otherwise, I wouldn’t really waste your time. It was almost like a super sweet treat, something you enjoy while you are doing it but regret it later when you feel sick.
