I love nothing more than curling up with a good book. Or more often these days, an e-book. It’s all terribly 21st century now isn’t it? Whilst I was browsing the Kindle store a while ago, looking for some suitably escapist holiday reading, I saw Prada & Prejudice being given away. Literally. It was free. It still is. (Go, go, go!) So I downloaded it – I’m not one for looking a gift horse in the mouth. I needed something to read whilst doing some lengthy travelling and this was perfect. I couldn’t put this down, and devoured the whole book in a couple of days.
The story is about socialite Natalie Dashwood, failing department store heiress with a spending habit and a troublesome rock star boyfriend. Her world is about to be turned upside down when high-flying executive Rhys Gordon is drafted in to help save the family business and demands she shops on a budget and has to get a job. There’s drama and laughs all around as the readers are served juicy chapters from the main characters, leaving the reader turning the page until the very end.
Prada & Prejudice contains everything I like in a book – humour, lust, romance and a healthy dose of intrigue with a fun, fast pace. I liked it so much I’m going to download the rest of the trilogy. Rumour has it a fourth book is due out around Christmas.
You can download a sample, or the full version, of Prada & Prejudice from Amazon, the Kindle app & the iBooks app – currently for free, and the other books in the trilogy are all under £2.00.
Have you read this or the rest of the trilogy? Do you have any recommendations?
