Title: Love Lies
Author: Adele Parks
Reading Level: Adult
Fern is glaring thirty in the face and can’t ignore the love lies any longer. Life with Adam was amazing once – although these days swinging from the chandeliers means D.I.Y not S.E.X. She believes a romantic wedding should be the next step but Adam just won’t go down on one knee. Then a chance meeting with Scottie Taylor – the UK’s sexiest pop star – lights fireworks in Fern that won’t stop exploding. It’s mind-expanding love at first sight for them both so when he proposes in front of a sell-out crowd at Wembley Stadium, there’s only one answer. Yes, yes, yes! Before you know it, Fern is living the celebrity dream in LA and a wedding planner is arranging designer shoe fittings. But isn’t it all happening a little too fast? Why is this modern day Cinderella homesick for a rented two-bedroom flat in Clapham? How do you know whether love is telling the truth? Fern must choose which version of this fairy tale is hers…
I got right into this book with no problem. It's easy to read, and easy to get started. It's not what I'd pictured this book to be. Nor what I'd consider a GREAT piece of chic-lit. I don't like stories where the girl leaves the guy for someone else, then tries to go back to the guy she left in the first place. Maybe it's just me being old fashioned or just upset that a girl could do that!! It was an easy read though. Not bad, but not good either...just OK. It is a VERY British book. If I read this 2 years ago then I wouldn't have understood it....there is a bunch of British slang.
