Holly Hearts Headlines (Holly Hearts Hollywood #2)
Author: Kenley Conrad
Genre: YA Contemporary
Release Date: October 27, 2015
Publisher: Swoon Romance


Holly Hart has it all: designer clothes, affluent friends, a recording contract, and she’s dating the biggest pop star in America.

It's too bad he can't be seen with her in public. It's even worse that he seems so very cozy with Lacey, the girl who seems to enjoy stealing Holly’s dream and taking all the credit for their platinum-selling album.

And Lacey? Well she couldn't carry a tune in a bucket, but that hasn't stopped her from basking in the glow of the fame and fortune that comes with pretending to be Holly.

Yet, Holly signed a contract vowing to never reveal her true identity as the girl behind the hit songs. Her record label doesn't want anyone to know their teen dream is really a chubby, insecure girl from Iowa.

Holly needs to focus on finals. She can't let herself be distracted by the extremely hot and talented Grayson Frost or his prevailing attachment to Lacey. This is the deal Holly made, and she has to honor it no matter how much she hates it.

As if that’s not enough pressure, her grandparents have come to stay, her mom is dating a guy who makes his own deodorant, Shell Shocked Records want Holly to distance herself from Grayson, and she’ll probably end up failing Driver’s Ed.
In a town full of gossip and secrets, Holly wonders just how much longer she can continue to live a double life.

When the media gets a little too close for comfort, both Holly and Lacey are at risk. Soon Holly realizes her dream isn't only about her and if she is to ever be truly happy, she'll need to find a way past her insecurities.

Filled with laugh out loud and hold your breath moments, Holly Hearts Headlines is the follow-up to Holly Hearts Hollywood by Kenley Conrad.


Just once, I should like to be able to go to a party and have no negative experiences. I mean really, is that too much to ask? Every party ends up being some kind of dramatic, game-changing event. All I want to do is drink Diet Coke and dance all night. But no, once again, I am hiding in the bathroom and wishing I were dead.

Serena’s party is in a beautiful and trendy new nightclub called Vamp that is surprisingly fancy for a place that is trying for a “goth” look. I guess the definition of Hollywood goth means that all the décor is black and the bartenders wear black lipstick.

Everything started out great, I mean it usually does. Serena and I were dancing and guzzling virgin piña coladas when it happened. Now, Serena and I like to dance like lunatics. We are always trying to outdo one another with new and crazy dance moves. So, I was trying out a new hybrid of twerking that I’ve been practicing when I suddenly felt my huge butt collide with someone and knock them to the floor. I whirled around to apologize, just to see that it was Lacey sprawled across the floor. 
Kenley is a twenty-something cat lady who lives in Phoenix, Arizona. When she’s not working her office day job or writing books, you can find her either singing and dancing or binge-watching TV shows on Netflix.
