In this 3rd A-List episode, Anna Percy has finally achieved her goal - only two weeks after coming to LA, she's 'wild and free' and has done the deed, after resolving a series of misunderstandings, with her perfect match, Ben Birnbaum. She also has a job interning on hit TV show 'Hermosa Beach', working for her nemesis Cammie's dad Clark Sheppard. Life should be perfect.

But it's never that simple. Anna feels awful about telling Adam Flood that she only wants to 'stay friends'. Ben's continual attentions begin to smother her. And she finds herself interested in other hotties, like the mysterious Django, who lives in her father's guesthouse, and co-exec producer/writer Danny Bluestone. Anna is confused.

Bad girl Cammie's discontent is rising. Her friend Dee has reformed, and Sam has befriended Anna, who Cammie sees as 'the kiss of death' to her own desires. If that were not enough, a young stepsister, Mia, has moved into Cammie's home and borrows her clothes. Then Cammie's restless eye falls on Adam Flood and what starts as a game turns into something sincere and serious. Can it last?

In Blonde Ambition, Zoey Dean gives us an enticing tale of musical relationships in Celebrity City amongst young people with too much money and too much ego. But beneath the surface, it's also a story that celebrates the possibilities of youth, ambition and love. Great fun for older teens.
