Publisher's Summary

Twentysomething Poppy became a cliché when an accidental pregnancy presented her with a 49-year-old husband. But Luke Norton isn’t any old husband – he’s the anchorman for television’s SevenThirty News and his ruggedly handsome face is beloved by the nation.
Life isn’t coming up roses thanks to the first Mrs Norton’s popular column, “Diary of a Divorce” about her ex, “the Cad”, and his new wife, “the Bimbo”. Luke’s having a midlife crisis and spending more time with a plastic surgeon than his daughter, former lovers are circling like sharks, and Poppy’s left holding the baby, her former modelling career a distant memory. It’s time for “the Bimbo” to fight back and show the world exactly what she’s made of.

Do not waste your credit

I usually enjoy Julia Llewellyn's books however I struggled with this story.
It just rambled and I had to fast forward it to finish it

Not as expected...

The bio sounded interesting. The bio is misleading. The storyline had good potential which was not exploited. This title may be better if read in paperback but I found the narrated version dreary & disappointing far from the fictional ‘tongue in cheek’ comedy take on ‘celeb’ word wars I'd hoped for…

That husband, ugh!

It's not often you get a character in a book that bugs you so much, you want to stop listening to the book! The husband in this was so selfish and up himself, that I just kept getting cross and not really caring how the story went.

A nearly-past his prime newsreader leaves his wife for his girlfriend when she becomes pregnant. The first wife uses her journalistic status to snipe at him, long after he has married the girlfriend; but he deserves it, as he continues to play the field, while the second wife questions her abilities as a wife and mother.
