Plenty of very descriptive sex!
3 girls, all attending a boarding school (The Midnight Girls) share a dark secret from their schooldays which taints their lives and relationships from that point onwards and drives them apart for a while but then there are much nastier people in the world who pull them all back together by the end - its a tried and trusted and not very original plot but its glitzy escapism if you are on a hot beach in a hot country sipping a cold daiquiri and like reading about designer shoes and handbags , Its not going to get any prizes for originality but if you read the whole "round robin" series of these books , you might enjoy them. Its life , but not as even an average rich bitch knows it .
My favourite of the three characters was certainly Imogen. I felt she was the most believable of the three, and I could relate to her in a way, trying her best to succeed in a world that wasn't necessarily for her. I liked her as she went on throughout the book as well, from a young schoolgirl to a headstrong young woman, and I enjoyed seeing these characters as they grew up. I also liked Romily, she was a bit of decadence from the book, and always makes you jealous of her lifestyle! Despite her naivety, she's a likeable character and I especially liked the main plot around her. Allegra is my least favourite, I just wanted to give her a good slap to be honest but it's good that Taylor inspires it in her readers to dislike a character like that!
This is definitely escapist reading. It's set in a world most of us will never get to experience - that of vast money, titles and decadent lifestyles, but this makes it fun to read because you can transport yourself to another place when you're reading which I love. As I mentioned, it's very much in the bonkbuster line - there's quite a bit of sex in the book and while it's not graphic, Taylor doesn't hold back too much with her descriptions so do be aware of that if you don't like that sort of thing in books. I didn't feel like the sex was out of place, so it did fit in with the feel of the book. I enjoyed also how the book spanned the lives of these girls, it lets you get to know them and we see how these secrets and lies change them as the book moves on.
Overall, this is a very good read from Lulu Taylor, and it definitely makes me look forward to any more books that she'll be bringing out in the future. It's well written, the characters are very well developed and likeable, and there's always a lot going on in the book to keep your interest which is very important when it's over 600 pages long! The book really picks up pace in the latter half, and I was really hooked by then, I couldn't wait to see how it was all going to end up for Romily, Allegra and Imogen. I'd definitely recommend this, especially as a great beach read for the summer, it's well worth a go, I really enjoyed it!
