Author: Adele Parks
Fern is glaring thirty in the face and can’t ignore the love lies any longer. Life with Adam was amazing once – although these days swinging from the chandeliers means D.I.Y not S.E.X. She believes a romantic wedding should be the next step but Adam just won’t go down on one knee. Then a chance meeting with Scottie Taylor- the UK’s sexiest pop star – lights fireworks in Fern that won’t stop exploding. It’s mind-expanding love at first sight for them both so when he proposes in front of a sell-out crowd at Wembley Stadium, there’s only one answer. Yes, yes, yes! Before you know it, Fern is living the celebrity dream in LA and a wedding planner is arranging designer shoe fittings. But isn’t it all happening a little too fast? Why is this modern day Cinderella homesick for a rented two-bedroom flat in Clapham? How do you know whether love is telling the truth? Fern must choose which version of this fairy tale is hers…
This was the second book by this author that i read, the first one is “Tell me something” and i have to say even though it was thoroughly interesting it just didnt keep me attached to it. None the less the book is intriguing, a modern day fairy tale( since all women now days dream about marrying that celebrity that they have been pinning for for so long instead of Knights in shinning armors). And then when she meets her dream man and leaves the boring one she has been with for years, she realizes it is not a fairy tale at all. The character development is really good, you can see each one coming into their own, it really shows the flaws of each of them as you get to know them more. I am not a huge fan of the way Adele Parks writes her novels, but then again that’s just a preference i have.
If you want a good chic lit read, this is the book for you( I believe this is what this author is amazing at). It is funny,emotional, and i know a lot of women will connect with the story line.
