Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Tasmina Perry writes Chick Lit books and has so far written three other Novels. She has produced:-

Daddy's Girls 2006
Gold Digger's 2007
Guilty Pleasures 2008

In her fourth book we delve into the present and past of the Asgill family. They own an International cosmetics company and Meredith Asgill the mother is determined to keep her children's profiles as squeaky clean as possible. She meets Tess and Jemma who are publicists based in London who are ready to run a sensational story on the Asgill's. Instead of running the story Meredith offers Tess the opportunity of a lifetime which is how Tess ends up working alongside this wealthy and powerful family. Life changes dramatically as Tess becomes embroiled into the Asgill's lives.

Brooke Asgill is due to marry David Billington, an equally powerful and rich man. Liz Asgill is the elder sister who is fighting her corner for control of the family company. She believes that she has what it takes to make the brand successful once again with her at the helm. Her brother William is also fighting for control but mostly on behalf of his power crazy, social climbing wife. Lastly there is Sean Asgill who is the Playboy of the family. He never takes anything seriously and is mostly featured on the front of magazines with various women draped on his arm. When they all meet Tess everybody's lives change dramatically. Who will take over the company, will Brooke marry David, and will any of their past secrets be kept at bay by Tess, or come out and potentially destroy the family's reputation?

This story is full of twists and turns and I thoroughly enjoyed every chapter.

Format: Paperback
Like other reviewers, I've read Tamsina Perry's previous novels, and enjoyed them all. I enjoyed this one very much too - it's fast paced with characters who you feel you get to know well. Some of the plot twists and turns were - to my mind - a bit far fetched, but it's a perfect chick-lit novel which keeps you reading and feeling intrigued.

Two reasons for my three stars.

One, other reviewers have commented on the sex scenes being well-written, but to be honest I found them a bit cliched - too much illiteration ("suck her secret slit" and the like) and as if the author was trying hard to be "dirty" and just couldn't pull it off that well.

Two, parts of this book were so badly edited it made me cross. Product names suddenly changed with no explanation, characters were sometimes called by the wrong name, and there were numerous typos.

Both of these things - the latter more, because I'm a total pedant - detracted from my enjoyment of the book a bit. But overall it was a great read and I'd recommend it for a holiday or a bit of escapism.

Having read all of Tasmina Perry's books, I was very excited about this novel and started reading it as soon as it arrived through my letterbox. Tasmina Perry has once again succeeded in bringing us a superb book that really draws you in and makes you feel part of the story.

The book is mainly focused around three women, Tess, Brooke and Liz. Tess is an English girl who, after working for a newspaper for several years, has a job offer to become the publicist for the Asgill family - a family company and a major player in the cosmetics industry. Tess is to be hired on the condition that she will protect the Asgill family from any scandalous news stories and secrets and to make sure that nothing ruins the wedding of Brooke and her fiancé. Brooke and Liz are two sisters who were fortunate enough to be born into the Asgill family, but that doesn't come without it's downfalls. Brooke is about to marry into one of the most influential families in America, but is she really 'wife' material? And Liz wants to take over the Asgill family company and be as ruthless as possible in the process. With secrets, lies and affairs all thrown in, this truly was a brilliant book!

What this book does is really draw you in and you really get to know the characters. That's one thing I love about Tasmina Perry's books, I always have the perfect image of what her characters look like, and I always feel like I know enough about them.

Unfortunately, I don't think this book was as good as her first few, but that doesn't stop me from rating it 5 stars as this one really kept me on edge and I just loved the twists, turns and scandals that get revealed.

I cannot wait for Tasmina Perry to write another book! She really is Queen of Chick-lit!

This is my third Tasmina Perry novel; I have enjoyed all of them so far and although chick lit, they are that little bit different. They explore a world which many of us can only dream about and this one, like all those before has many twists and turns which make you not want to put it down.

Fast paced, chick lit and fantasy plots, but hey that's Tasmina Perry. This is blockbuster glamour about the Askill family, its about America, its about powerful families, and their dark secrets.

It is exactly what it says on the tin!
