Loosely based on her own life, "L.A. Candy" follows 19-year-old Jane, who moves to Hollywood to start an internship and winds up becoming one of the town's hottest reality stars.
"If someone said to me five years ago when this all started that I would one day make the New York Times Best Seller list I wouldn't have believed it," Lauren told People. "I am so honored that it is now a reality."
"L.A. Candy," which was released on June 16, is the first in a three-book deal for the reality starlet.
"I've always loved books that I could lose myself in, ones that would transport me to another place, but had characters I could relate to," she posted on her personal MySpace blog in March. "So, I'm excited to have this opportunity to write books like that for other readers."
