Loved this book. I have also had the complete privilege of meeting Martel herself.

I loved the way this book spoke me to me as a young media student, I enjoyed laughing, feeling and going through the motions with the other characters. I fell in love with Hartley, I want to party with Max and I want to have wine with Lucy. These are the kind of characters that you can relate to.

Review - I did really like this book, but I felt that Maxwell didn't really look into the relationship side, but focused more on the break-up and the mooching around phase.

I think that the book could have benefitted more from an exploration of Lucy and Hartley's relationship once they got back together, as well as looking at the difficulties of getting into the relationship.

Read it on a plane, thought it was vapid and superficial. The first chapter (in fact most of it) seemed to be a detailed description of what brands the title character was wearing... And maybe that's how some people get a good read of new folk, but not me... The clothes do not make the man. Any how this book contains the most feeble put down in the history of chic lit. This book made me wish I had a penis... Just so I wouldn't be associated with it.

A pretty good piece of chick lit as it had a lot of authentic touches which many other books in this genre sadly lack (won't name and shame them here). I'll look out for another book by Maxwell especially as a beach read.

The predictability of this book can be measured by typing the title 'Scandalous' into the good reads search engine and finding hundreds of 'this type' with the same name. It's an okay read if you want something light and easy that doesn't test your brain in the slightest.
