LoveReading View on Unsticky

A delightful read in the vein of that feel-good film Pretty Woman, only here the girl is not a hooker, just desperate as she is so badly in debt.  Both main characters have loads of baggage and each needs to sort the mess of their lives out before they can move on.  How they achieve this and find happiness is so addictively written you’ll love every minute of it.

Comparison: Lisa Jewell, Milly Johnson, Maria Beaumont.

Unsticky Synopsis

High fashion, high art, high expectations -- this is Pretty Woman for the twenty-first century Money makes the world go round -- that's what twenty-something Grace Reeves is learning. Stuck in a grind where everyone's ahead apart from her, she's partied out, disillusioned, and massively in debt. If she's dumped by another rock-band wannabe, squashed by anyone else at her cut-throat fashion job, or chased by any more bailiffs, Grace suspects she'll fall apart...So when older, sexy and above all, wealthy art-dealer Vaughn appears, she's intrigued against her will.

Could she handle being a sugar daddy's arm candy? Soon Grace is thrown into a world of money and privilege, at Vaughn's beck and call in return for thousands of pounds in luxurious gifts, priceless clothes -- and cash. She's out of her depth. Where's the line between acting the trophy girlfriend, and selling yourself for money? And, more importantly: whatever happened to love?
