Between You and Me by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus
Between You and Me by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus follows Logan Wade and her somewhat normal existence … that is until she gets a call from her famous cousin Kelsey saying that she needs a new assistant. Usually, business between family members if a bad idea, but what happens when your family member happens to be a world renowned pop sensation and Fortune Magazine’s most powerful celebrity? Logan dives in when Kelsey makes her an offer that she can’t refuse, but their relationship is quickly put to the limits when tensions rise on tour and Logan becomes the middle man between Kelsey and her parents. Anxious for something normal, Kelsey tries to break away from it all but ends up making mistake after mistake. Kelsey continues to unravel in the public eye and it is only a matter of time until Logan must make a choice between saving herself, and saving her cousin.
When I was first contacted about reviewing Between You and Me, I instantly said yes. I’ve been a big fan of both authors for quite sometime now and was anxious to see their latest joint venture in paper back, and I was thoroughly impressed with this book. If you are a fan of Britney Spears (who isn’t right?!?), then you will really enjoy this book because it closesly mimics her life during the last couple of years as she fell from pop princess to absolute train wreck. The authors wrote Kelsey in a perfect comparison to Miss Britney and she plays the role perfectly. She is unpredictable and dying for attention, even though she vows that she wants nothing more than to be out of the spotlight. The book is fast paced, entertaining, and a perfect piece of fictional pop culture. I could definitely see Kelsey plastered on the front pages of our gossip magazines or Perez Hilton with some of the stunts that she pulls in the book. Overall, a perfect summer time read – a true escape and a wild ride.
