=== Overall opinion ===
I loved this story. There was lots going on, the characters were strong, I really felt like I was getting to know lots about Natalie. I could feel myself running through the emotions with her, sympathy, love, happiness, nervousness. There was definitely a lot going on here, throughout the story.
I felt like I was learning a little something when reading this story. Natalie is a news broadcaster and she does the big stories, for the most part, however, there were times when she would be doing things that might generally be outside of her usual role and this made for lots of fun insights in to the world of cameras and co stars.
At times I felt like the story could be a little exaggerated, over the top almost, however, this just added to the story for me and I felt like I could really lose myself in this story and the dramatics of it all definitely helped. Some of the more serious issues that are touched on here include those of sexism and ageism, the typical older anchor being replaced with a younger, prettier model, something that unfortunately happens all over the world in numerous industries and in real life in general. This added another dimension to the story and just helped me immerse myself deeper.
Overall I loved this story, it was fun, the characters were good, I could really empathise with things that were happening throughout the story and at times I found myself feeling a little angry that the main character, Natalie, was being treated the way that she was, even if at times she didn't know it much. This is a real chick lit book, with some very obvious parts at the end, however, I thoroughly enjoyed this and would happily have paid 83p to read this had I have sampled it first. I am now going to look at some other stories by Diana Dempsey so it is fair to say that the free book has definitely drawn me in to potentially spending money on her other stories.
