I enjoyed reading about Stella s family, especially her father s work in architecture, but I didn t care much for Jay, I felt he was a very flat character without much personality. Really love Alderson s writing style She has a very easy but vivid story telling technique, in a way that makes you feel very much a part of the plot It s a bit girly girly romance in places, and a bit sexy in places good descriptions of nice, manly bodies and the like Really liked Stella Fain as a character and with her very extended, messed up family, there was a wealth of characters to get to know and like A nice fairytale ending, but not in a traditional sense I could see it coming, b Really love Alderson s writing style She has a very easy but vivid story telling technique, in a way that

need to have a boyfriend what s this, a chicklit with a strong, independent woman that actually takes a stand against the trope of needing the perfect boyfriend I felt frustrated when she reconnected with Jay and went off on her month s long holiday with him, but I was empowered when he, like a complete jerk, demanded that she would not be able to work if she married him, and she got up and left There was much to love about this book, but I would have loved the ending without the rushed reunion at the end I would have loved Stella to learn that you perhaps don t need a career or a man to find satisfaction with your life, but she fake married him before he even told her that he d given up his inheritance and she said she d keep working There s also the matter of privilege here Not so much Jay s, but Stella s She too is privileged and so when she leaves her job, there s no rush to find a new one The temptation to stay with Jay when he makes is ultimatum has nothing to do with his money, no, but that s because she doesn t need it I would have loved to have seen the conflict for a woman who perhaps wasn t wealthy herself when being made this offer I would have loved to have seen her have to take any job for a while because she had to I wanted to see her become a foreign correspondent This wasn t my usual type of book to read, but I was recommended to it by a friend I do like a bit of chic lit now and again and was hoping this would be a snuggle on the sofa read But for me I was disappointed Stella was described as a high end brand journalist who didn t really care for the labels and would rather have been working onserious journalism yet throughout the story she was described as owning many high end labels herself I liked the structure of the family and how it flow

disappointed Stella was described as a high end brand journalist who didn t really care for the labels and would rather have been working onserious journalism yet throughout the story she was described as owning many high end labels herself I liked the structure of the family and how it flowed through the story When I saw the organigram at the beginning of the book I thought I d be struggling to remember who was who but they were each brought into the story well Loved how they all gathered in a central place for lots of family time and you got to know them.But the overall story was a let down for me When I got to the end it was just with a bit of a sigh I felt that there was too much emphasis on packing in the brands and labels and not enough on the actual story being told I won t say too much so as not to give the story away Not sure on the title, didn t seem to really gel with the content.I did enjoy the ending though, shame it couldn t have been packed withof that
