Book Description

29 May 2008

Meet the WAGS: Louise, Tara, Jodie and Pattii and get ready to find out what really happens in extra time when...


you gatecrash the players' Christmas party, only to find that the 'no women allowed' rule doesn't extend to every modelling and call girl agency in town


your best friend's nanny does a kiss 'n' tell, exposing a string of lies and affairs that you have suspected all along anyway


your close friend wakes the kids up at 2am to go looking for Daddy - only to find him in the middle of a nightclub getting down and dirty with a prostitute


you confide your most earth-shattering secret to your new best friend - only to find it front page news the following day

Welcome to the world of wives and girlfriends, as 'Fabulous' * takes you behind the scenes and details the rucks, romances and rules of the mega-glamorous minefield that is the world of football. As we quickly discover, there's a lot more to being a WAG than holidays, heels, hair extensions and handbags. In the cut-throat world of Premiership football, it's not just a game of two halves - it's survival of the fittest.

And some will go to any lengths to stay at the top...

* 'Fabulous' is the pseudonym of an ex-WAG.

We're just not telling you which one...

4.0 out of 5 stars Hugely enjoyable 29 May 2008
What an enjoyable read, pure escapism. Fun to read and even more fun to speculate who they all may be! I was hooked and only wish it had been longer with more gossip filled pages.

By C. Rucroft VINE VOICE
Ok, in theory I should have hated this book. Terribly written with little or no description of events. Very cheesy and full of name dropping (picked up her 'chloe' bag or looked at her diamond encrusted 'Rolex' watch). To top it off, the contstant use of "babe" should have been enough to drive anyone mad.
But, I loved it! I couldn't put it down and I really enjoyed being a 'fly on the wall' in the life of the WAG's. Read it in two days. For a light hearted, summer read, this is perfect x

Enjoyed reading all about Louise and her friends.
What a lifestyle to lead never knowing whats going to happen from one day to the next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 6 Jun 2008
With two small children to run around after books have become a little bit something of my past.... until this one caught my eye, and I haven't put it down since. I can multi task, even when one thing is reading a book. This book is superbly written, it is really an enjoyable read. Take it on holiday, but I bet you've finished it before you get off the flight.
