Hello, reader friends! The Truth About Fame by Toni Shiloh is a wonderfully genuine and heartfelt novel and I loved getting lost within its pages! 

about the book

The Truth About Fame by Toni Shiloh (Faith & Fortune book 2)

The Truth About Fame by Toni Shiloh

Release Date: July 7, 2020
Genre: Christian Chick Lit

My life has always been in the spotlight. Born to two famous parents and then quickly rising to “super” status in the modeling world ensured that I, Astoria “Tori” Bell, would always have my image plastered across newsstands. Unfortunately, adoring fans weren’t always magnanimous and now I have a stalker on my hands.

Oddly enough, the tall, dark, and all-too handsome bodyguard hired to protect me seems more harmful than the threatening notes from the stalker. As well as his plan to flush out the danger by proposing a fake engagement.

The lines between pretend and reality blur and I have to shore up my resolves. Baggage from my past means I can’t let myself be vulnerable. But the way Marcel Fox treats me has me thinking otherwise.

With a new rock on my finger and the man who put it there by my side, happily ever after seems like a possibility or is that as fake as my public persona?

The Truth About Fame is the second book in the Christian Chick Lit series: Faith & Fortune.

my thoughts

The Truth About Fame is as delightful as Mr. Marcel Fox himself. Teasing is always good-natured and never excessive. Big emotions and life-long commitment are gently hinted at until the timing is just right. Relationships are always built on love, faith, and everyday life.

Tori is wound a little tight at times and that’s the characteristic I most identified with. From my experience, I knew she needed a steady, patient man in her life. Marcel is a perfect blend of fierce protector and down-to-earth family man. I loved watching the sparks fly between these two and seeing them navigate one another’s personal and professional lives.

Shiloh delivers what could have easily been a painfully cliche storyline and injects it with faith and an incredible level of relatability. I assure you that chicks of faith from every walk of life will appreciate these characters and their pursuit of happily ever after! This series is highly recommended and lovingly placed on my favorites shelf!

I purchased print copies of this entire series and also received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I was under no obligation to post a review. As a co-owner of JustRead Publicity Tours, I received compensation from the publisher and/or author to coordinate a promotional tour for this title. The opinions expressed are my own.
