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
Format:Paperback
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
Format:Paperback
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

I did enjoy this book, it was so easy to read, and it did keep you intrigued, it just goes to show you being a WAG is not all it is cut out to be, but then again us sensible girls know that!! dont we.
This is a great summer beach read, easy to pick up and really enjoyable, a little bit of escapism.
