Review: On Location by Jen Calonita

Series: Secrets of My Hollywood Life #2
Author: Jen Calonita
Release Date: May 1, 2007

It seems like the summer of dreams come true for Hollywood princess Kaitlin Burke: the media loves her (again), super-cute and funny Austin Meyers is finally her boyfriend, and she's starring in a movie by her all-time favorite director Hutch Adams. What could be sweeter? But life on set is not as perfect as the makeup and costumes. And with an old love and a scheming new publicist on the scene, it's about to get a whole lot messier.
Review: I love the first book in this series, Secrets of My Hollywood Life and I couldn’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series! On Location, book two, was just as fun, cute and a quick read!

Kaitlin is back in this second installment and her life is going great. She’s got a great boyfriend, the media loves her and she’s about to being working on a movie by her favorite director; life couldn’t be better. But this is Kaitlin, a big star and she’s in Hollywood. There is always something going on in Hollywood. And soon, the plot thickens when a slimy ex comes into the picture and everything goes downhill from there. The plot did seem repetitive but I can understand that the same things can happen over and over again.

Kaitlin was a great protagonist once again and there was a lot more character building in this book than there was in the first book. I really did feel for her though, since she seemed to always get the bad end of the stick and everyone was after her. But then again, if everything wasn’t against her and she didn’t prevail, we wouldn’t have such a good story!

While the writing wasn’t absolutely exceptional, it was very entertaining and I highly enjoyed reading about Kaitlin’s new adventure. I’m currently read book three and I’m liking it too!

Overall: 4/5
Cover Comments: 5/5—I love how these are such simple diary covers!
