This is the first Katie Price book I have read and although I finished it I did feel somewhat cheated. The story is OK, but the writing shows no flair or feel, it's like someone has read "How to write romantic fiction 101" and then decided they are an author. I know that Katie has a ghost writer, which makes it even more disappointing. The writing just feels childish, the sort of thing you would expect from a teenager. It just doesn't flow along, just feels very "bitty". I felt no empathy at all with the characters. They all irritated me.
The story just doesn't gel for me. The author spends a long time setting the scene in 1999 and then leaps forward in time ignoring the fact that it would have been really interesting to explore how Liberty and Zac got on together when they first arrived in Hollywood and why they had so many marriage problems years later. Back in the UK the story did get a little better, but was so full of cliches it was laughable ... the fat best friend, the gay best friend, the best friend she wishes was a boyfriend, the wicked ex-girlfriend ... the sex scenes ... predictable ending seen a mile off ... This was a story which could easily have been so much better and because of that I was really disappointed.
I won't be buying any more of Katie's books.
