Blurb:

Kelk Tess Brookes was the girl with a plan.

 

Now she's the girl with a choice. Should she stay in London and start her own advertising agency with her best friend and potential boyfriend Charlie? Or should she head to exciting Milan to pursue both a new career as a photographer and a new man, the enigmatic and elusive (and highly irritating) Nick?

 

For the first time, Tess has to choose between the life she always dreamed of and a future she never imagined possible. With her heart and her head pulling her in different directions, Tess has to make a life-changing decision about What a Girl Wants.

Review:

Being late and stupid as usual I read What a Girl Wants straight after About a Girl. If I'm being totally honest with you I'm a bit gutted I did. The excitement I felt after book one needed to be digested and have me waiting to fully appreciate the fabulousness of What a Girl Wants. 

 

Yet again we are with the delightful Tess Brooke's as she tries to come to a decision about her love life and her career. Always one to sit on the fence, Tess is finding this extremely hard. On one hand she has Charlie, her best friend and 10 year old crush, who's smart, reliable, tall, dark, handsome and just told her he loves her. On top of all that he's just offered to set up shop with her so she can continue her career as a creative advertising manager, on the other hand though is Nick. A man who has her furious with his egotistical and argumentative ways, but who has her constantly thinking with her ovaries and not her head when it comes to him. A man so beautiful it hurts, with him comes a photography assignment in Milan.

 

Of course this is another cracker! It is truly a fantastic read, yet again you start dropped right into the middle of drama. The said drama continues right until the very last page. It is hopelessly romantic, extremely sexy and has the most hysterical one liner's in a book ever. I honestly absolutely loved it. I was expecting fast-paced action like About a Girl, but what I got was a lighter, more subtle read. It balanced the series out really well that way and I thoroughly enjoyed them.

 

Kelk has a new fan in me. 

 

Dramatic, fun, couture dresses, one foul mouthed friend and Milan. 

 

5/5
