Idol (2011)

Jenna Jonsson has a glittery pop career and when she meets rock band Phoenix and they suggest a collaboration Jenna jumps at the chance of working with her idols. But will Jenna be able to work whilst keeping her hands off ladies man Nick Taylor, and earn the respect of fellow band mates serious Zac and family man Ryan? Sadie Laine, on the other hand, had her big break stolen from her, yet her fortune starts to change when she arrives in Las Vegas. The two girls battle to get to the top of their game professionally and in love, and tensions rise as the childhood competitors cross paths once again. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover. The cover for Idol is hot pink, with the title spelt out in sparkly flashbulb lights; you instantly know it is going to be a glitzy chick lit read, full of glamorous characters. It's raunchy and cheesy, and I really enjoyed it. The perfect read if you're looking for a real easy-to-read, lighthearted bonkbuster at the end of a long day.(AB)
