Take a Picture & Chain Reaction by Lena Goldfinch

About the Book
TAKE A PICTURE (A Novelette)
A young (temp) paparazzi photographer falls for a teen pop star...
This lighthearted contemporary romance for teens and young adults points its lens at Troy Alexander (19), an aspiring singer turned temp paparazzi photographer, and teen pop diva, Ashlyn Sunshine (19 going on 25).
Troy Alexander is detoured on his road to fame as a lead singer, so he takes a job as a temp paparazzi to earn enough money to get home from his gap year in New York City. His assignment lands him in the path of Ashlyn Sunshine, pop music diva and former child actress. They end up spending one memorable summer afternoon together...
+Bonus Short Story:
CHAIN REACTION (a Prequel to HAUNTING JOY)
When a "reveal your secret crush" chain letter goes awry, Joy gets caught in the middle.

My Thoughts
Take a Picture was a cute short story! I liked how Ashlyn was really normal and nice despite being famous and Troy was a good character too though his reactions to things annoyed me occasionally. The premise of the story was rather cool and it was pretty well executed! If you are looking for a sweet and quick read I would recommend this!
Chain Reaction was a fun little prequel to Haunting Joy! It was cool to see Joy notice Nick for the first time and their few interactions were sweet knowing what happens in Haunting Joy! I also really liked how Dave wasn't the normal arrogant high-school boy and was actually sweet to Joy!
