Amen, L.A. by Cherie Bennett and Jeff Gottesfeld

Natalie Shelton is in for the ride of her life. She lives in a tiny Minnesota town where her mom is the pastor at their local church. Then out of the blue her mom landed a fantastic job as the new pastor in the Church of Beverly Hills. Natalie is dragged along to California leaving her boyfriend, Sean, behind. Soon Natalie forgets all about her old town and old boyfriend. She's living in a huge mansion, making friends with celebrities, and going to real L.A. parties. But is Natalie adjusting to the Hollywood life too fast? Do her morals even exist anymore?

I thought Amen L.A. was a pretty cute story. I requested it because I just needed a light, fun, book and that's exactly what I got. The characters were very interesting and easy to relate to, especially Natalie. Coming from a small town and being in a long distance relationship myself, her story was very appealing. The plot also kept getting better as new characters kept being introduced. The ending wrapped itself up pretty well, but the authors left plenty of room for a sequel. I really enjoyed reading this book and I am definitely going to recommend it to some of my friends.
