The F List by Alessandra Torre
Release Date: May 1, 2020
A romance about two celebrities who can’t stand – or stay away from – each other.
There was a lot I did to get to this point, to get 42 million followers. Some of it I was proud of, most of it I wasn’t.
There was a group of us, all internet celebrities, and everyone wanted in, which is how six of us ended up living in this mansion, a camera always on, the public always watching. Two months and nine carefully scripted TV episodes that would get us more of the three F’s we were desperately chasing.
Fame. Fortune. Followers.
I knew my role. I was Emma, the unlikeable one. The dark villain with the devious smile. The package of dynamite that would blow up any chance of peaceful living and harmony.
Cash knew his role. He was the good guy. The lovable one. The one that everyone, even the darkest cast member of them all, would fall in love with.
They were supposed to just be roles.
None of it was supposed to be real.
My heart didn’t get that memo.

4 ‘Fame or love’ Stars!
ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Alessandra Torre is one of those authors that is able to work around so many different types of romance novels and troupes. She can give you dark romance, steamy romance, romantic suspense, romantic comedy and so many more. And she will not fail at it. The F List was just another example of that for me. Completely different from what I have read from Torre before but still with the unique style that all her readers adore.
The F List is Alessandra’s newest standalone novel and it’s a contemporary romance between two social media influencers who can’t stand each other. Or can they? Emma was just an ordinary girl when she met Cash Mitchell for the first time. The only man who made her feel beautiful. But one night her life turns upside down. She becomes Emma Blanton, a woman now focused on becoming famous. And that is what will happen through this book, the development of Emma’s career and her interactions with Cash that will make her realize that, maybe, fame, fortune and followers is not what she needed in the end.
Emma was different. I meant what I said to her at my party—she was beautiful. Raw. Wild. Untamed. You don’t see a woman like that and forget her.
Wow! So completely different from her usual style, Alessandra Torre delivers a sweet romance with lots of ups and downs between two celebrities. I loved how Torre arranged this book, the whole thing is about hashtags, quotes and the actual story between Emma and Cash. I loved these characters, their layers, their strengths and vulnerabilities. It was a beautiful love story, sweet and focused on the couple’s evolution and not the actual sex. As I said, different from what I normally expect from Alessandra but still so good. The connection between Emma and Cash was amazing and I loved all the storyline and the characters around them (especially Wesley!).
“I don’t care if the cameras know that I want you.”
Therefore, I am rating The F List with 4 STARS because I surely enjoyed this new type of romance from Alessandra Torre. Unexpected, original but still with Torre’s unique writing style. I mean, I do wish the sexy chemistry between Emma and Cash to be a little bit more developed since AT is amazing at that but I understand why she kept this on the sweet side. I loved this couple and I loved their story and its happy ending. If you want to read an out of the ordinary romance from Torre, be sure to check this one out!
