I enjoyed this book immensely and if you liked riders or Jackie Collins grab a copy now!

Lola Fitzgerald has everything, pin up boyfriend, tabloid celebrity lifestyle and a pin-up boyfriend, that is until her trust fund is frozen and the locks have been changed, her boyfriend is in the papers for all the wrong reasons and the people she once thought of as friends are busy stabbing her in the back and making money out of her misfortune. Lola has to learn to stand on her own two feet and find out some real lessons about life.

Evie on the other hand, the other lead female is street wise and used to having to do unspeakable things to squeak by, that was until she met a sugar Daddy who met her every desire, sadly he is now ill and she too is out on the street. Whilst she is well explored she seems to become a more minor character in the end but expect to see her burlesque act on tour in a follow up.

The characters are spot on, the dialogue well observed and the action relentless. Towards the end I found I was greedily devouring the book to see how it would all turn out as the characters find themselves in ever more disastrous scenarios. A perfect read for holidays or for some wonderful escapism, a solid debut.

Well as her debut novel I had set my sights low (sad as that may seem). Unfortunately there is so much competition in this field it seems like there is more and more of the same tired types of chick lit out there. Having said that, the main reason I read this type of genre is the sheer escapism element. The whole point of reading this type of book is to lose yourself in the unrealistic and hope for a happy outcome.

As soon as you start reading this it becomes clear very soon that the characters are most definitely rich and spoilt. Lola is the spoilt `princess' daughter who is given everything and does not a thing all day every day apart from spend her fathers money. You have Evie who is the mistress, put up in the smartest flat with lots of credit cards in tap, and finally the wife Carin, who is all about the money and wants anybody connected to money she could have, out of the picture.

The characters are fantastic because they are all so catty and hell bent on getting their own way. Although Lola and Evie are both greedy in their own way as well as being spoilt as the book progresses you begin to like them more and more as they realise the pitfalls of their own situations. Carin the wife was an absolute bi*ch and a character that you will love to hate. She truly is an awful woman. In addition to the women there are a whole host of male characters that appear in the book and their roles dramatically change over the course of the story.

The story itself was well thought out and most definitely further over the line for the unrealistic nature than I would normally go for, but somehow it worked incredibly well. There were quite a lot of twists and plot surprises along the way which made for an interesting read too.

I could not put this book down especially in the middle, one night i came home from work.. started to read a few pages and by the time I had put it down it was 3am! Such a page turner. Its quite sad really but i ended up reading the whole book in four days!! that's how hard it was to put down.The ending was very predictable but after all the twists and turns through the book I enjoyed the simple ending. This is a great read.

I really enjoyed this book, being a huge fan of the bonkbuster genre. The plot flows along well and you find yourself dying to know what's happening next. Both lead characters, Lola and Evie, are likeable although Lola is slightly more developed in my opinion. A really good novel with fun characters, glamourous settings and an interesting plot! Will definitely look out for this author in future!

As most people know, I absolutely LOVE Rebecca and her books. I’ve previously read Killer Queens so when I saw Divas in my local WHSmiths (which has sadly closed down!), I knew I’d be a fool if I didn’t purchase it. I’m slowly making my way through her collection so stay tuned for more – ESPECIALLY, her new one, Bad Brides.

The opening prologue is very dramatic and once you read it, you won’t believe that the narrative becomes even more dramatic. It’s just jam packed with drama! The prologue introduces readers to the ice-queen bitch who is more formally known as Carin. She’s bossy, demanding and quite frankly, she needs a punch in the face. I love it when Rebecca includes a character which everyone can fight – it’s a lot of fun!

In the first chapter, we meet Lola – a very spoilt twenty-nine year old socialite whose every move is funded by her very wealthy Father. I hoped and prayed that Lola would have a wake-up call because she was starting to annoy me and resemble Carin a little bit too much! However, at the end of chapter one, readers are left with a BIG shock. I almost choked on my cup of tea whilst reading – thanks Rebecca! The characters are constantly having curve balls thrown at them. Then we meet Evie, the mistress to Lola’s wealthy Father. She works out with her instructor Lawrence and doesn’t boast about the expensive gifts which she receives. I liked Evie but I found myself liking Lola a lot more despite the big difference between them both.

With themes of money, friendship, family, love, drugs and class – this narrative is full to the very top! You won’t have a second to breathe. I was, however, unsure about the build up to the ending. On one hand, I liked it and found it to be very powerful, but on the other, I don’t think it suited the narrative as much as it should have. It is, the most unexpected roller coaster narrative I’ve yet to read and my Mum is begging to let me allow to read it…
