Flirty, razor sharp wit blended with lots of passion and inter-flatmate rivalry make a delicious cocktail of a read. Ugly duckling Alex decides to not let herself be the bottom of the heap and beat her three flatmates in the games they play with men.

Synopsis

Venus Envy by Louise Bagshawe

At twenty-seven, Alex Wilde feels like her life is going nowhere. She's stuck in a dead-end job and her relationship history is a tale of woe. What's more, she's put on a few pounds lately...Sharing a house with three gorgeous girls doesn't help. Her sister Gail got more than her fair share of the good genes, Keisha is an ice-cool man-magnet and Bronwen is so hip it hurts. With competition like this, is it any wonder Alex feels so inadequate? Alex has two choices: she can retreat to the safety of her duvet and stuff herself with chocolate or she can smarten up her act and face the world head on. Never one to choose the easy option, Alex realises she needs to up her game if she wants to stay in it...

I love the honest opinions, recommendations for every genre and every reader, wish lists and Like for Like.

Amrita Dasgupta

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
