After hitting the #1 spot on the New York Times list with her first novel, L.A. Candy, TV star Lauren Conrad continues the deliciously entertaining series about an ordinary girl leading an extraordinary life.

Full of dishy details about young Hollywood that only an insider can reveal, this entertaining novel shows that lies are only as sweet as the people telling them.

Jane Roberts was the average girl next door until she and her best friend, Scarlett Harp, landed their own reality show, L.A. Candy. Now the girls have an all-access pass to Hollywood's hottest everything. But there's more to life on camera than just parties and shopping....

When racy photos of Jane are leaked to the press, she finds herself at the center of a tabloid scandal. She turns to her co-star Madison Parker for help, unaware that Madison is scheming behind the scenes. She might be Jane's shoulder to cry on, but does Madison really have Jane's back?

Scarlett's working on a scandal of her own. She's fallen for someone who's strictly off-limits--which means Scarlett has a big secret to keep...from the L.A. Candy cameras, the paparazzi staking out her apartment, even from her best friend.

Of course, nothing stays secret for long for the stars of the newest hit TV series, and all this drama couldn't be better for ratings. But can Jane survive another season in the spotlight?

Jane Roberts has escaped from Hollywood, and has gone into hiding with her friend Madison. The press is all over Jane, after pictures where Jane is with another guy who is not her boyfriend, have been leaked to them. Little does Jane know that Madison is behind the whole thing. And with Jane missing, Scarlett is now the star of the TV - show. But one cannot hide forever, and soon Jane must go back and confront the unfortunate events and the press. And she must do so in full view of the TV - cameras. Unbeknowst to Jane, Madison is doing her best to destroy her image, but will she succeed? Jane Roberts is 19 years old were excited when she got her own reality show, but she is soon to find out what the drawbacks of success are. Sometimes I think she is a bit naive, and I also thought she rubbed Scarlett of way to fast when Scarlett tried to tell her who was behind leaking the photos to the press. I would have listened to my best friend in a case like that, and not trusted a girl I had just started hanging with. But I liked that Jane had the couraged to confront Jesse about what she had done, and tell him that she was sorry. But I actually liked Scarlett way better than Jane. She was much more sensitive and likeable. I must confess that I was a bit biased towards this book, before I started reading it. I have never watched "The Hills" and I am not a typical girly girl. But I was in for a surprise. This book consumed me. Once I started reading, I could not put it down. And it amazed me just how addictive the book was. A bit like chocolate really, sweet, easy to consume and you can't seem to stop once you have started eating. "Sweet Little Lies" is not a craftly written book, but the writing flows easily and there is always something happening that makes you turn page after page. I was eager to learn more about Jane, and how the problems in her life was going to be solved. I cheered for Scarlett, and cursed Madison ( what a *****). "Sweet Little Lies" is a light read, perfect for the beach or for snuggling up in the sofa when you just want to relax. This is not nobel prize - material, and the book is not something that you will be thinking about a long time after you have read it. In a sense the book is like a reality show: very enganging once your are in it, and easily forgotten when you are through. But we need books of that kind too, and I am actually looking forward to reading "Sugar & Spice".show more

This second novel in the L.A. CANDY series starts off where the first one left off. Jane Roberts, star of the hit reality TV show L.A. Candy, finds herself in the middle of a national scandal after a tabloid prints some photos of her in a rather compromising position. Not knowing what to do or where to turn, Jane takes the advice of her castmate, Madison, and takes off to Cabo for some much needed peace and quiet with Madison by her side to comfort and console her. Jane can't run forever though, and she can't keep ignoring the persistent phone calls of her concerned friends, family, and crew members, either. Facing reality, Jane heads back to L.A. to make things right. After leaving without as much as a word to let anyone know where she went, everyone is pretty upset with Jane. Her roommate, Scarlett, can't believe that Jane took off with that two-faced master manipulator, Madison. Scarlett tries to explain to Jane that Madison is the one who leaked the photos...but Jane won't listen and this causes a rift in their long-time friendship. At this point, Jane doesn't know who she can trust anymore. To further complicate things, Jane's heartthrob boyfriend, Jesse, is willing to take her back after she publicly humiliated him by cheating on him with his best friend, Braden. Though Jane loves Jesse (or at least she thinks she does), she really can't deny her feelings for Braden. As Jane and Jesse's relationship becomes more and more turbulent - and abusive - Jane has to decide what she really wants. Does she really want the cameras altering her life to fit what works for the show? Or does she want her old life back, where she wasn't America's Sweetheart and she didn't have to do things just because the producer wanted her to? Showing that Hollywood life isn't always so glamorous, this novel really brings the series to another level. Though Jane is extremely naive about everything, it's still a suspenseful and intriguing page-turner. The only question is : Will Jane see the truth before it's too late? You'll have to read on to find out.show more
