#BookReview: Blind Item by Kevin Dickson & Jack Ketsoyan

blind itemAbout the Book

No one knows her name, but now everyone wants to.

As an assistant publicist in Hollywood, Nicola spends her days (and nights) sweeping up the scandals of singers, movie stars, and TV actors. Fresh from Ohio, she’s rapidly discovering the real Hollywood is rotten under its glittering skin. Everyone is a hustler with a hard bottom line and a soap opera sob story.

When she breaks her own rules and starts dating a movie star, the Los Angeles scene starts to spill into her own life. As the paparazzi begin the hunt for sexy star Seamus O’Riordan’s new mystery girl, Nicola’s best friend Billy has her back while he prowls parties for the latest scoop to sell to the tabloids. Her roommate Kara keeps tabs on things too—in between befriending a former child star and transforming herself from stylist to reality TV sensation.

As the scandals pile up behind them, their pasts will be exposed… And every secret can be sold.

Written by two Hollywood insiders, Kevin Dickson and Jack Ketsoyan, Blind Item‘s jaw-dropping scandals are real, but the names are not. And they’ll never tell.

My Review

I’m a huge fan of celebrity-lit, so when I was asking to review Blind Item, I jumped at the chance. I loved the sparkly cover, the synopsis, and the fact that the book was written by “two Hollywood insiders” – who better to tell this story? Wow is there a lot happening between the pages. What I always find so intriguing about celebrity inspired books, especially when they are coming from celebrities or Hollywood insiders, is that you know everything involves the truth in some way. So even though some situations or scenes seemed so unreal to me, I had to remember that in the world of celebrity, anything goes. Fascinating. This is a very racy read so keep that in mind if that isn’t your style. The pacing actually was a little slow to me so at times it was challenging to hold my interest, even with all that was packed into the story, but I still thought overall it was fun and very interesting to read. If you like Hollywood or celebrity-lit, I would say give it a read.
