Walk on By written by Stacey SolomonI received a review copy


Ever since Charlotte Taylor was a little girl she’s wanted fame and fortune. She sings with the voice of an angel and is soon plucked out of obscurity and launched into the limelight as the overnight sensation “Lola”

Charlotte attends wild celebrity parties and moves in circles with the rich and famous, but the people living the life of celebrity aren’t all she imagined them to be and neither is her life. Struggling to find the real Charlotte again she battles against the crazy life she’s thrust into, desperately trying to swim to the surface

Blake Hudson is a self-made man. Successful in his own right, he’s busy making his own mark on the world. Self-assured, strong and determined, he’s not looking for a permanent relationship. But when he meets the sweet and charming Charlotte, he’s captivated. But the world of celebrity and business collide and commitments, half-truths and unintentional deception don’t make for smooth sailing

Hilarious consequences ensue through this romantic comedy, but can Lola and Blake overcome the challenges that life and fame throw their way to find their own happy-ever-after, or will Lola just have to Walk on By?


Stacey Solomon writes about a singer that is new to fame; Charlotte Taylor, whose stage name is Lola.  I love Charlotte’s best friend Rupert; she calls him, Roo-Roo and he calls her, Petal (which I thought was an adorable nickname).  Their relationship was my favorite part of this entire story.  They will make you laugh out loud.

Being new to stardom, Charlotte is not very hip on how to be at parties, interacting with other celebrities.  You can only imagine the hysteria that ensues as she tries to “fit in”.  She is a very funny character that I really enjoyed reading about.  It seems like Charlotte is having a tough time being “Lola”.

When Charlotte leaves England to go to New York to take a break from “celebrity”, she meets Blake Hudson, her Apartment’s Manager.  Their meeting was truly kismet.  Or, was it?  Was he Mr. Right?  It made me feel badly for the celebrities that are all over the internet and gossip magazines.

But, I definitely felt that something was missing within the story, and I was not fond of the writing style.
