First of all, I didn't actually buy this; someone left it in the staffroom at work and my curiosity was piqued. I was intrigued to know what a book ostensibly written by 'glamour' model and British über-celebrity Katie Price, aka Jordan, would be like. I've always found myself angered by the concept of celebrities having their names attached to novels actually penned by ghostwriters; this wouldn't be acceptable for a work of art or a piece of music, so why a book? However, having read Angel, I w ...more

I picked up this book in school as it was sitting in the library and I thought awk why not my friends are all talking about it I am sure it can't be that bad.

I really enjoyed this book, I was quite surprised, seeing who the Author is, I didn't know if it would be any good, but it really was. I have now re-read it about 4 or 5 times.
A Definite Must Read!!

****Warning may contain spoilers****. This book was the first Katie price books I read and honestly I liked it. The book was surprising well structured though the punctuation and basic sentences might need a recheck.

The trouble that Angel gets herself into is shocking and really made her insecure but knowing that at the end Cal ( who was the most pathetic character) was going to be there was so stupid even though. Cal's girlfriends were really annoying and possessive mainly because he was such a

This book hasn't got a great plot. The main character, Angel, seriously annoyed me with the shit decisions she kept on making. At times she seemed to be a bit of a slut (no offense to her or anything). The writing didn't seem to be very developed.

And yet, I absolutely loved it. Angel was a really interesting character and we got to see her develop throughout the story -true, some of the developing she done was not good but I found her really intriguing. Truth be told, I didn't think much of glam

This is the second time I've read this book and I'm moving it down a couple of stars because it just didn't grab me like it did the first time, a good book should get you every time. I think I was seeing more of Angels flaws in this time round. She is likable but she is very selfish. Considering most of this book is set in the run up to her bestfriend and her brothers wedding, Angel always finds a way to make it all about her. Her boyfriend Mickey is an absolute waster and I don't know why Angel ...more

I was so surprised at the way Katie can write. To be honest its not the BEST book i have read. But however it is a good/easy read.

If you love the idea of a budding model wanting to find the perfect guy, this book would be perfect for you. Yes i know what you're thinking - this book is the typical thing that Jordan would write about - however the book does get more endearing as you read along.

I have got 3 of Katie's books and all have been an OK read. However in saying this i do sort of contradi

Shelves: done, erotic
This is totally wasn’t I had expected. I thought this book was similar to Fifty Shades, erotic and all that crap, but this wasn’t! Okay so maybe it was for a bit, but the erotic part was quite minimal. It was one of the most unusual love stories I have ever encountered. And I didn’t even know why I bought this book in the first place.

Minus the good looks and obvious sex appeal, Angel and I actually have a lot in common. She’s lost, I’m lost; she’struggling, I’m struggling. We’re both just lost

Katie price is an amazing author, i was a little hesitant when i came across this book in a book store a few years ago and i loved it. Upto date i have read several of her autobiographys and all of her fiction books. I love how she entwines the characters into all of her books, she integrates them so well that you just have to read all of them to gain more insight into the characters you discovered in previous books. I found several errors in the print but overall an amazing light read and i wou ...more

I was a bit unsure as to what this book would be like, seeing as it is written by a glamor model.

As it turned out I did actually enjoy the book and it wasn't badly written. I have read better and I have read worse books.

I got the feeling that parts of it were actually linked to Katie's life as a model and this is where she got her ideas for the story, not that doing that is a bad thing. The story let you get a good feel of what the characters were like and it gave good descriptive writing of sce

If you know Katie Price, then I think it's pretty obvious what her books are going to be like. I have to admit, chick-lit is a slight guilty pleasure of mine - I read some fairly heavy books, so sometimes I want to read a bit of trash. I think with Katie's books you have to bear that in mind and know what to expect!

With regards to the book - OK, it's not Shakespeare. But nobody's expecting it to be! Katie introduces us to the world of celebrity, the glam and the not so glam. The characters are e

I bland hatade jag den här boken, ibland älskade jag den, ibland längtade jag efter den, ibland ville jag bara sluta läsa den, ibland var den långtråkig och ibland sög man bara in boken..

JAA där har ni mina tankar som jag förkortat ner! OCH JAAA det kommer bli en sjuhelvetes krånglig recension att skriva. Vet som sagt inte vad jag tycker.. måste klura på det. Resten av serien finns bara på engelska (ständigt detta problem) så kommer nog inte fortsätta på serien. Känner mig förövrigt inte så mana

This was recommended to me by a friend at school, I don't usually like this sort of book but told her I would read it.

The characters were all incredibly shallow and self involved, which are traits I don't particularly rate in people and designer brands were mentioned time and time again and I am a person that does not care at all what logo you have on your bag or shoes.

However, it was very easy to read and held my attention so that's why it got two stars.

Aww! Ten koniec bol tak sladký. Som z toho úplne dojatá!
Táto kniha naozaj nebola až tak zlá ako som očakávala. Samozrejme nemôžem okomentovať spisovateľkyne písanie čo je škoda kedže túto knihu napísala samotná modelka a preto som tomuto vôbec nedávala šance. Nakoniec z toho vyšiel veľmi pekný príbeh s happy endom. A hoc som po celý čas mala pocit že to neskončí tak ako by som si priala, sen sa stal skutočnosťou :D
Pohodové čítanie na niekoľko hodín :)

Cely pribeh mi prisiel ako na horskej drahe. Niektore casti boli podarene, ine menej. Knizka je celkovo asi taky priemer, ktory neurazi, ale ani nenadchne, ale kedze je to trilogia, lepsie hodnotenie si necham mozno na zvysne casti. Co ale musim knihe vytknut je, ze celkom dolezite momenty, o ktorych by som sa rada docitala viac, nam autorka neprezdradila, len to rychlo opisala v par flasbackoch. Mozno sa viac dozviem v dalsom diely. ;o)

This book is definitely a good one to take on holiday!!! I took it away with me for a week and i literally could NOT put this book down. This has got to be one of the best books I've read despite me doubting the quality of this book in the first place due to the author being Katie Price. The story is so gripping and you never want it to end!! So well done Katie!! It's a real good book for the girlies and I would 100% defo recommend.

I was a bit dubious about reading a book by Katie Price as I'm most certainly no fan, however I was pleasantly surprised. The storyline is quite predictable but I found this a nice easy read, what I like to call an 'in between' book, something simple after the books that require concentration ! I've gone on to read her entire collection of novels, definitely recommend as a light read.

Absolutely love this book, definitely a guilty pleasure. I must have read this book 3 times now and each time I'm fixated. Plenty of drama and never a dull moment. Some may find it poorly written but ideal for teenagers or light reading. Great storyline and love the relationship between Angel and Cal so much so I read Angel uncovered and paradise, also amazing books

This was well written easy to read trash chick lit. It is basically an embellished version of her autobiography. If you don't know Katie's story you'll like it for a quick romp through the glamour world, if you do know it doesn't completely detract from the story, but you can't imagine the characters as anyone other than who they are based on.

Born as Katie Infield in Brighton, East Sussex, England on May 22 1978, I changed my last name to Price when my mother Amy remarried. I have an older brother, Daniel, and a younger sister, Sophie.

Although I had many interests when I was younger, a friend suggested that I should pursue a modeling career. So I sent a few shots to an agency and was taken on. I attended loads of castings, had my fair
