Even though Natalie is pampered and spoilt, especially at the start of the story, there is something irresistible about her. I just couldn't help liking her and really hope that the author plans to bring her back in the future. A highly recommended read. Many thanks to the publisher for sending me an ARC in return for an honest review.
The book is about Natalie, heiress to a big store which is currently under the water and if something doesn't change, the shop is going down and bankrupt. Not that Natalie is taking care about the situation, oh no, she's enjoying life and buying, buying, buying stuff, such as chandelier for 11,000 pounds.
But it's going to an end. Natalie's grandfather is employing Rhys Gordon, young and dynamic man who should help to rescue the business. Rhys is hard as a stone, doesn't show any emotions and has only one goal: do not allow for the store to sink down.
But it's not so easy with Natalie and her above mentioned expenses. After one purchase too many her grandfather decides that she's going to work for Rhys and finally start to earn money. But he doesn't know one thing: that Natalie is being blackmailed and is going to do everything only to rescue the name of her family.
I must say that actually I "have been there, have seen this". The idea of this book, while light, is neither too new nor original. The heiress spending too much money and having too much time. The store that must be rescued and which needs some opening to new and refreshing. The "it" girls. The fashion - designer abusing other people and being racist. I have really seen this with my eyes, read about this in tabloids and am not sure if we need a book about this.
Natalie, well, I am sure you know whom I have seen reading about her. Just couldn't help it. She was naive, she was silly, she was not behaving according to her age, she was spoiled and was honestly not my favourite character ever.Read more ›
Our heroine Natalie Dashwood is a tad spoilt and self-absorbed at the start of the novel but it’s clear that she has a good heart from the way in which she treats her ex, rock-star Dominic, and her friends and family. She is an adorably innocent character and even when it was obvious that she was in the wrong, I was still routing for her.
Rhys Gordon our hero is clever, charismatic, hot and, at times, a ruthless businessman. He may have been brought up on a council estate but he knows his way around money and makes plenty of it. He is the perfect match for Natalie but theirs is a rocky road…will they or won’t they?
Along with the burgeoning romance, the novel has a few exciting sub-plots involving fashion designers and disgruntled employees of Dashwood and James department store, and these add to the fun. Katie Oliver brings all of the story strands expertly together at the end and if, like me, you love a happy ending, you won’t be disappointed.
I loved this novel.
However Dashwood and James are possibly going under, so her grandfather, Sir Richard, hires Rhys Gordon to try and turn the stores fortunes around.
That is the most basic explanation of the main storyline, and although it may sound similar to many other books, you soon discover just how talented Katy Oliver is, in her writing. There are twists and turns galore, various points of view, and a villain too!
Pretty much anything you could want from a chick lit story is present in this book and more. Very entertaining read that I thoroughly enjoyed..so much that I've already started the next book in the Dating Mr Darcy trilogy.

I enjoyed this book. I think it's aimed at girls who are quite young but I still enjoyed it. (I'm 32)Published 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
A very formulaic book. It's interesting while you're reading it, but almost immediately forgettable.Published 8 months ago by ABC123
