Suddenly she catching the attention of two very different suitors, TV producer Rob and Hollywood bad boy rising star Liam. How will Amber keep her head? And what the hell will everyone wear? The Stylist is a fast-paced, fun-packed rummage through the ultimate dressing up box.
Thank you to Cara and Mira Books for sending me a copy of The Stylist to read and review. I’d also like to thank them both for the opportunity to be involved with the blog tour.
Amber Green (Yes, named after the traffic light) works in a fashion boutique in London, but one day is snapped up by celebrity stylist Mona Armstrong to join her in LA. Amber is apprehensive and wonders if the fast paced lifestyle is for her? The opportunity to join Mona wasn’t something she really wanted.
The Stylist has an air of the Devil wears Prada – the wallflower assistant and angry boss. I definitely wouldn’t compare the the two novels as each has its own qualities. Rosie does a great job of transforming the world of fashion into a reality which makes you feel a little jealous – you want all the clothes. I wanted to join Mona and Amber on the ride, no day was boring for them!
Mona Armstrong was a complete and utter cow! I can’t believe Amber never hit the woman, she was so rude. I know she had the experience and ‘knowledge’, but why would you want to be involved with such a woman? Unfortunately, I’m sure we’ve all experienced this type of character before and hated every minute of it. Down with Mona!
The celebrities that Mona and Amber work with are brilliant characters and each has their own personality laced with demands. Beau was my favourite and of course her micro pig too. Although she seemed like a diva, she definitely had a soft spot for Amber. They would have become dear friends if it wasn’t for Beau’s behaviour, but I won’t spoil that for you – read The Stylist and find out!
For a debut novel, Rosie did a fantastic job and I would recommend the world of fashion and drama to anyone! (Don’t be fooled by the word drama, as it is not over the top just incredibly humourus!).
