So Jennifer had it all thought through. She had a job, a boyfriend and a lot of depth. Well, that last one she tried not to think of a lot, but she did her best to deal with the payments. All that until she finds out that her boyfriend is a cheater. Not only that, but she gets fired, and she also has to evacuate her apartment in a few months. Her whole world comes to ashes in a couple of days. Thankfully, she gets chosen for a reality show with a $250,000 prize to run through the summer. At least she has something to do until she gets it all sorted out.
In the show she gets to know many people that vary from good and intelligent to stupid and mean. Pretty much what people can find in most reality shows. She doesn’t give up as she has a target: to pay her bills and restore her life. What she didn’t expect was to find love, or what it looked like love.
The author gives a glimpse of life in the real life and life in a reality show, pretty much as we can see every day. The characters she created are not far from real life characters and are those or some of those we would expect to find in a reality show. She has done a great job on that part.
The content of the show is pretty nice too. It could be a real show, no argue on that. The descriptions and narrative create vivid images, that put the reader into the viewer’s position, as if the show was on TV instead of a book!
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I don’t watch TV now, give me a good book, but even when I did “reality” TV wasn’t my thing. Its so scripted, the title Reality is a real misnomer....Still, it makes for some great stories, I’ve read some real crackers – and some huge fails too :-)
So where does this one fit? Well, to begin I thought it was going to be great. I loved Jen, love the way the build-up brought her to the point of the show.
Some great characters in the mix of the 12 people selected, a real cross section with – hurrah – someone to dislike intensely. Those characters always add such interest. the games were good too, and we got to see just how some people can manipulate things to get their way.
I did get a bit irritated at the relationship drama, the does he/doesn’t he, did they /didn’t they stuff. It seemed very high school/teen thing, not the 21-25 age group, but I guess when you’re stuck in that intense, focussed, hot house environment with people no doubt chosen to provide friction and good TV, then it’s kind of inevitable.
As a fun read it was great, as a romance not so for me, it was more speculation than actual happening most of the while, so the ending felt a bit strange. I couldn’t see it working like that.
In fact I felt the ending was very rushed, at about 85% we still seemed to be only halfway through the show, still very much into the games and the voting, then suddenly it was all ended.
Very abrupt and unexpected. I had flipped to the end at the 85% mark just to see if maybe there was a second book, it seemed so far off being completed, so for me that part spoiled it. I wanted the drama, the tensions etc to play out more, but its was like wow, x happens, y happens and suddenly its z and we’re finished.
Stars: Three, a fun one off read for me.

Title: America's Next Reality Star (Reality Star #1)
Author: Laura Heffernan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
This for me started a little slow it took me a while to settle into it but that was mostly down to the fact that heroine was dating someone other than the hero however we soon find out why they shouldn't have been together and this is where it picked up.
A twisty storyline with even more twisted characters made this an entertaining an enjoyable read. Very well written I honestly felt like I was getting a candidly open behind-the-scenes look at was truly goes on in the world of reality television.
This was my first read by Laura Heffernan but it certainly won't be the last, I'm very much looking forward to the sequel of this one.
