Books Read: Ilana Fox - All That Glitters

Ella Aldridge seems to have it all. Married to Danny Riding, one of the Premiership's leading goal-scorers, she lives the dream - the mansion, the car, the freebie designer clothes. But Ella and Danny have a secret. Their marriage is not what is seems. Between them, it takes a lot of hard work to fool the press and the nation that they really are Love's Young Dream, when deep down Danny's desires lie elsewhere.

With Ella's star in the ascendant, the world is at her feet - a TV show, a fashion column. But then she meets Johnny Cooper, the bad boy of British television. He's ruthlessly charming and sexy, and he can see through Ella's sham of a marriage in a heartbeat. Drawn into a risky, high-octane affair, Ella suddenly realises how much she has to lose and how quickly it can be taken from her...

When Ella Aldridge goes on holiday to Thailand to get over the break up of her relationship to boyfriend Finn, little does she know that she'll come back with a new man, high-profile footballer Danny Riding.

And soon she's plunged into the WAG-style glitz and glamour lifestyle and planning her wedding.  Although it's not quite the wedding she would have planned herself, with celebrity bridesmaids instead of her cousin Stacey, but she goes along with Danny's agent Aaron's plans to make a brand out of their relationship.  But things are not quite what they seem between Ella and Danny, so can they live happily ever after?...

Their relationship is soon put to the test when she meets TV presenter Johnny Cooper with whom she'll be working alongside.  Despite an instant attraction to him Ella knows that nothing can come of it but that doesn't stop Johnny pursuing her and he won't take no for an answer despite the fact that Ella is married.  Will she be able to resist him or will she give in to temptation?

As the title, All That Glitters, would suggest there's plenty of glitz and glamour but there's so much more going on than first meets the eye, we're soon introduced into the seedier side of the celebrity lifestyle...

I loved this book from the start and read it in just a couple of days so am already looking forward to the next book from Ilana Fox. I'd like to thank Orion Books for sending me a copy of this book to review.
