Format: Paperback
The first thing I would like to point out is when buying this book please note that is is a young-adult fiction book. I bought this thinking it was a book for adults as it was displayed in the bookstore on the general 'fiction' shelf and it was also reccomended on here alongside authours such as Tasmina Perry, Louise Bagshawe etc. so I was a little suprised when I realised it was a YA book.

Really this book is a similar format to those written by Perry, Bagshawe etc. but aimed at a younger audience. There is no actual sex in this book, only a few references too it, and a bit of swearing but nothing too innapropriate so I would say this book would be ok for teenage girls aged from about 13 and upwards. Also just because this is a YA book this doesnt mean older people wouldnt enjoy it, I am in my early 20's and I still quite liked this book.

Overall I think this book is quite a fun, escapist read; the characters are perhaps a bit wooden though - Madison and Simonetta are a bit TOO stereotypically spoilt and bitchy, and Sapphire is a bit TOO sweet and nice. The male love-interests are also quite stereotypical, one being an 'Edward Cullen' type (he is actually described as this in the book) and the other guy is described as having 'abs like Taylor Lautener', but I guess this will probably appeal to teenage girls at the moment.

Fortune is something of a first in the world of YA. Described by publisher HarperCollins as a 'snogbuster', it's a teenage take on the glossy and glamorous romances of popular fiction.

The basic premise of Fortune is deceptively simple: three very different girls receive out-of-the-blue invitations to the 50th birthday party of music mogul Brad Masters. They each fly out to his mansion, only to find out that the man himself isn't even there yet. Forced to hang out by themselves, it's pretty clear that these three have nothing in common... except maybe a mutual dislike. But when Brad Masters does show up, he springs the biggest surprise of all - the secret truth about their link to him, and each other. Hint: it's a real humdinger.

What ensues is a fabulously soapy tale as the three girls compete - to varying degrees - for a slice of Brad's vast fortune. Our heroine is Sapphire Stevens, a good-hearted Londoner who dreams of making it as a singer-songwriter one day. She's joined by scheming American princess Madison and ice-queen Italian model Simonetta. While the characters aren't anything out of the ordinary, they're all well-drawn and colourful. It's impossible not to empathise with Sapphire as she finds herself the target of the other girls' backstabbing, and two-faced Madison in particular is the type of character who's bound to make readers' blood boil. Then there's the love interests: Sapphire has two, and they're both of the tall, dark and handsome variety. We're left guessing which one's for real, as poor Sapphire crashes from one disaster to the next at the hands of her scheming adversaries. And while it's not exactly hard to figure out where the storyline is going or who to trust, it's all wicked good fun.

What Fortune does best is escapism.

I was slightly worried when i bought this book 'cause I realised it was 'Young Adult' I thought it would've been childish and boring. I'm glad to say I was very wrong. Fortune is brilliant, I read it in one night and couldn't put it down. Yes, there are typical stereotypes and it's obvious from the start Sapphire is the good one but it was a delight to read.

Overall, I think this book is summer reading perfection. It's glamourous, sassy and bitchy! I really hope there's another one!

Format: Paperback
Fortune is one of the least-taxing books I've ever read; it's not going to win any major literary awards, but for what it is - a beach read - it's hugely enjoyable. It seems somewhat familiar - as if I've read it somewhere before, but I couldn't for the life of me tell you where I've read it before. It's about three teenage girls - Simonetta, a model who lives in Rome; Sapphire, an aspiring London musician and Madison, a spoilt New York brat. When they're all summoned to Brad Masterson's fiftieth birthday party they all presume it's for reasons to further their careers but that couldn't be further from the truth and much fun ensues as the girls vie for a slice of Brad Masterson's pie.

I knew pretty quickly exactly why Brad Masterson had invited them to his birthday party. I don't necessarily believe it was a secret, nor was it a surprise. What I enjoyed about the book was the battle between the three girls. They're all vastly different. Sapphire's the consummate good girl whereas Madison - and to an extent - Simonetta are total cows. I did find the characters to be hugely stereo-typical but for a teen beach read, I'm not necessarily surprised and there was comfort in the fact I was rooting hugely for Sapphire and that I wanted Madison and Simonetta to be found out for the spiteful people they were. I'd have liked Simonetta to have been a bit more forthright, as despite seemingly being a feisty Italian, she kind of faded into the background the more the book went on. I desperately wanted to stab/punch/scratch out the eyes of Madison. She gave me murderous thoughts. I loved Sapphire though, and I ended up getting hugely frustrated how no one believed her when Madison and Simonetta were trying to get her into trouble.

I hugely enjoyed Fortune.
