Uber-busy Annie Valentine - mum to two demanding children and personal shopper in a swanky London fashion store - is now intent on setting up a shoe and handbag empire of her own, and she’ll do anything to get there. But what about her adorable new man? As someone who wants nothing more than a quiet life, Ed is shocked to discover Annie staking their home on her success, and now their relationship is on the line. Is Annie's surprise remedy - an extravagant friends and family holiday to Italy - really what they all need? Especially when a dashing Italian businessman promises to fulfill Annie’s every dream.
The bio and brief audio intro suggested that this title would be a fun comedic story akin to the ‘Shopaholic’ series, unfortunately this was not the case.
I found myself fast forwarding because the story was boring and I had no empathy with the characters and didn’t feel the ‘business’ idea was really that feasible additionally wondered why the story diverted to the situation with the children in Italy as it just really was unnecessary.
Addtionally I found parts quite ‘graphic’ which I was not expecting and did not really want to listen to.
If I want to listen ‘Erotica’ I will choose title from that section.
*Note to author: Less is more.
I would ideally like to give this book zero stars.
this was a fun book! you cant help but love annie valentine, if you can listen/read the book leading up to this you will love it
