Celebrity Bride - Alison Kervin

Celebrity Bride by Alison Kervin

"Its the celebrity wedding of the season .... The news that Hollywood bad boy Rufus George is finally settling down has caused a media storm. Especially since his bride is a civilian - a nobody.

Kelly Monsoon is just an average English girl. She never expected to meet a mega-star like Rufus let alone have him fall in love with her. Its like a fairytale come true.

Only this Prince Charming comes with a 12-person entourage, a bevy of beautiful ex-girlfriends and the world's press camped on his doorstep. And now the small, intimate wedding Kelly always dreamed off is taking on Hollywood epic proportions ... Will this new celebrity bride ever make it up the aisle?"

The above is the blurb from the back of the book ... unfortunately they have put 'dreamed off' when shouldn't it be 'dreamed of'? Amazon has put 'of' in their write-up. Please comment below if I am wrong :)

Celebrity Bride is an interesting book - it has a splash of Pretty Woman, a drop of Bridget Jones sprinkled with a dash of paparazzi spice ... you can easily imagine how the characters look in your mind and how Kelly feels throughout her 'ordeal'.

My Rufus is a bit like George Clooney (as I like George) and Kelly is Cheryl Cole, that's how I saw them act out the storyline in my mind - their faces filling each frame as the storyline progressed.

Its not all about weddings, in fact 'the wedding' gets little mention so don't let the front cover and title fool you. The story focus's on Kelly's life and the changes she has to deal with, it covers most of the deadly sins (eg.. Extravagance, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Envy, Pride and Vanity) but the main focus is on Friendship and Love.

OK I'll admit it - I cried at the end ... but I won't tell you why! You'll have to read it yourself to find out.
