I have read a number of Jane Green books, and although she is one of my preferred chick-lit authors, this isnt one of my favorites by her. It was a bit too predictable, and at times I didnt care for Libby, the main character.
Libby Mason is a fairly successful publicist, living the singleton life in London. She falls hard for her no strings attached friend Nick, who is gorgeous but poor. After the inevitable parting of the ways, she is wooed by exactly the catch she has always dreamed of one if the wealthiest men in England. There are a few problems though; hes rather stodgy and not very handsome. But Libby is so blinded by how much he adores her and his luxurious lifestyle that she turns a blind eye to many of the troubles in the relationship. Soon she is planning a wedding while wondering if she is doing the right thing.
My major complaint with this book is the shallowness of Libby. It seems as if the only thing she was concerned with was money and social status. I also didnt like how she was a chameleon girlfriend, changing her personality to please the current boyfriend. There were some interesting secondary characters, but the entire book was all about Libby and her search for love with the proper billionaire, and I found it tiring at times. The ending of the book is obvious from page one, so that also took away some of the pleasure of the book. Read Jemima J or Bookends by this author. Those books were much better and had some more serious undertones than this one, which was pure fluff.
Love, Love, LOVED this book. I'm a fan of Jane Green and this book just makes me an even bigger one.
This book is wonderful if you are into chick lit.
This book was a very easy read. I would say that it was pretty typical. You could tell what was going to happen - but it's a good one for the Subway or for the beach. I didn't really like the main character but I liked a lot of the other characters.
