      Jordans back with more of Angels Antics...

      This is the third book in the 'Angel' series. I would strongly recommend reading the other book in the series first, as otherwise, you would be completly lost with this book.

      This picks up directly from where Angel Uncovered (the prequel) left off.

      Angel Summers is now living in Sunny LA, having ditched her English Premieship football player CAl BAiley, for her American Baseball League player Ethan Hawk.

      Everything seems to be going well, until Angel's dad Frank falls ill, and Angel returns home to England. She runs into her ex-husband Cal, and her old feelings are quickly re-ignited. Angel tries to ignore her feelings, but soon finds herself trying to convince herself she isn't in love with him still.

      She returns back to LA to Ethan, but when the divorce papers come, through, she finds her self struggling to put pen to paper.

      After living a lie with Ethan for a while, she returns to England for a visit, and shares a moment with Cal, making her realise what she really wants in life, is to be a family with Cal and their daughter Honey, but the nagging worry in the back of Angel's mind won't go away. What if Cal cheats on her again?

      So she finds herself having to make the choice Cal or Ethan, once and for all, but as secrets start crawling out of the woodwork back in LA. Angel finds that choice being made for her. Can Angel ever have her happily ever after, without it being jeprodised.

      A great read, but I feel the story should be left here, there really is no room for a continuation, without draggin it out. It is a great easy to read book, and you will find it to be a page turner, and is very reasonably priced.

      Although this book is once again geared towards a teen audience, can be enjoyed by all, from teenage upwards, as it is a little sexually descriptive for a pre-teen or younger.

      It also follows the same easy read narrative, as the prequels, and makes an excellent light read, with the prefect combination of moving swiftly through, without dragging through the minor details, that aren't neccessary.

      It was recomended to me by a friend, and I would definetly recommend it to others aswell. If you love the celebrity life style, and wanting to know what goes on behind the scenes, then I can assure you, this book is perfect for you...

        A disappointing read

        When I saw that Katie Price had released another fictional book to follow on from Angel and Angel Uncovered I felt I had to read it simply as I had read the other two books. I wish I hadn't bothered.

        Katie Price does not actually write her own books and it was recently revealed that the person that does write the books is Rebecca Farnworth who has penned Valentine and A funny thing about love, both books I am yet to read.

        I purchased the book from amazon for the price of £6.49 and after reading listed it bak on ebay to get my money back.

        When I first started to get back into reading I found the Katie Price books easy to read and took them away with me on honeymoon knowing they would be easy to pick up and put down, but since then I have got into more renowned authors such as Sophie Kinsella and Adele Parks and now after reading the above authors going back to Katie Price was a real step back for me and I found myself cringeing as I read this book through.

        The book is based on Angel a model from Brighton (sound familiar) who has recently split with her husband Cal after discovering that he had an affair. Angel felt she could not trust Cal and decided to end her marriage and moves to LA to be with her new boyfriend a famous American Baseball Player with her daughter Honey.

        The book I feel is just a story based on Katie's own experiences and desires, she meets someone new just as she is going through a split and throws herself into a new relationship with him even though she is not fully convinced he is the right man for her, we find her hiding her true feelings from her friends and family and sometimes from herself as she tries to convince herself that she has made the right decision.

        In the book angel has a lingerie and perfume range, which is so similar to Katie's lifestyle, Angel has given up modelling as has Katie Price, she loves riding as does Katie Price.

        The similarities in the book are really laughable and some of the phrases that are used in the book in my opinion would not be suitable for a young teenager to read and I found some of it a bit too vulgar.

        The only thing I feel I gained from these books is the truth about how she feels about Peter as the character is so similar to Katie it kind of confirms how she wishes she was still with him and how he really was the right person for her, even though she loves her new partner he is not the right one.

        A disappointing read that I wish I had not even bothered, I won't be reading anymore of her books.

          don't miss this

          Now , those of you who have read my reviews from the beginning will know that I started off loving Katie Price and a lot of my reviews were 'all for' Katie , but since her split from Peter Andre , I have seen what she is really like 'a person who will do anything to get money out of the public (in her interview on GMTV , she even had the cheek to say that she doesn't pose for photos when she's not working ( I can understand her wanting privacy) , but her reason was because she doesn't like people making money out of her ; she soon wants these peoples' money when she's got a new product out though doesn't she. So that is one of my main reasons for now not liking her , along with the fact that she is very 'gobby'. Although , I will admit , that I love her fictional books (even if she doesn't write them herself).

          Her latest fictional book is called Paradise and was released in the United Kingdom in July 2010 and is available to buy from Amazon for a price of £7.

          This book carries on from the book 'Angel; Uncovered' (which was the sequel to the book 'Angel', and is about a glamour model called Angel. The book picks up from where it left off ' Angel had chosen a famous American baseball player over her footballer husband Cal. She is loving life in L.A , but soon problems start. How will Angel cope ? And what will she do when her father falls ill and Angel heads back to England , and bumps into Cal. Is it too late to change her mind ? Read Paradise to find out!

          I love these book so much ; they're right up my street! I love the whole 'glamour' and 'celebrity' thing about them , as you will know I am a massive celebrity fan , so it's interesting to see what kind of things go on behind the scenes , even if it is a fictional book. I love the plot of this book , as it's very 'mad' and real 'juicy-gossip-like'. I loved this book so much that I read all three hundred and twenty pages within a couple of hours ; it's really addictive and once you have started reading it , it's hard to put the book down. It's a perfect Summer book , and is great for reading while relaxing on the beach or by the pool.

          I like how this book follows on from Angel; Uncovered , as I really enjoyed that book and when I had finished reading it , I was really sad , as I had liked the book so much that I had wanted it to go on and on so that I could find out about what happened to the characters , and so it was good that this book continued from the last page of the previous one. You will love this book I am sure , and you shouldn't have no problem understanding this book as it does gives a good introduction , which is also good for readers who read the previous book as it reminds you of what happened , without going over everything too much which is good.

          One thing which I find about 'Katie Price's books' is the fact that the characters seem to be based on Katie's own life ; 'Angel/Katie is from Brighton' , 'Angel/Katie is a Glamour Model' , 'Angel/Katie has kids now so doesn't want to do glamour modelling anymore so turns to other things ' , 'Angel/Katie splits with her husband' , ' Angel/Katie goes to L.A' , 'Angel/Katie has a new boyfriend'. It's like she doesn't have any imagination and so just uses her own experiences.

          These books are written very well , but not by Katie Price. An author called Rebecca Farnworth actually writes these books and I love how they are written ; so easy to read , and they move really quickly so that the reader doesn't get bored , but not so fast that you can't keep up. What I don't understand though , is the fact that these books are great , and so I don't know why the ghost writer doesn't release them herself under her own name as I am sure they would sell just as much. It annoys me that Katie Price is named as the 'author' on these books , when she probably hasn't had a single thing to do with the book! She's such a money-grabber! If she genuinely wrote them , then fair enough , but the fact that she doesn't even write them , and lets someone else do it and yet puts her name on the book is a real con. How can she say that she 'enjoys writing these books' when she doesn't ?Doesn't make any sense!

          I have really enjoyed reading the 'Angel' books ; they really are great! I think that after three books based on the character ' Angel' , they shouldn't continue with 'Angel' but should let the 'series?' end on a high , and move on the to the next character 'Crystal' - who is a pop star! I can't wait for the next novel! Don't miss this one!

          Thanks for reading!
