The Stylist by Rosie Nixon

When Amber Green, a shop assistant in an exclusive London boutique is plucked from obscurity and mistakenly offered a job working with Mona Armstrong, the infamous, jet-setting 'stylist to the stars', she hits the ground running, helping to style some of Hollywood's hottest (and craziest) starlets. As awards season spins into action Mona is in hot demand and Amber's life turned upside down. Suddenly she catching the attention of two very different suitors, TV producer Rob and Hollywood bad boy rising star Liam. How will Amber keep her head? And what the hell will everyone wear?

I wasn’t too sure if The Stylist was going to be my kind of read as I am not the world’s best when it comes to fashion and red carpet events but I was intrigued to see how Rosie Nixon has used her past experiences to help her write this eventful book and I am so glad I did as this was such a fabulous read.

Amber Green never dreamed when she turned up for work in Smith’s Boutique that she would have her life turned upside down by none other than stylist to the stars Mona Armstrong when she snaps up Amber to be her assistant after her previous assistant quit. Amber is thrown in the deep end of glitz and glam getting the celebrities ready for the awards of the season. Amber soon finds out that working for Mona isn’t the job of her dreams she had envisioned!

This book had such and energetic buzz about it and I haven’t felt like this since reading the early books in the Shopaholic series. The storyline is fast paced and eventful leaving no safe page to take a break.

Amber was such an engaging character who really was hard working and dedicated to the job at hand, nothing seemed to faze her where I would have crumbled in certain situations she was constantly looking for a solution and I take my hat off to her as she done a fabulous job. There were a vast amount of characters in this book and I loved each and every one of them as they all added to the glamorous and dramatic feel to the book.

You could see the authors knowledge of the behind the scenes of the awards events shine through and the talent the stylists have and attention to detail for each and every celebrity who is to walk down the iconic red carpet.

If you are one who loves a modern, glamorous and upbeat read that has celebrities draped in the finest of fashion with a pinch of romance and a sprinkling of humour then make this your next read you won’t be disappointed. If you are a fan or Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk then Rosie Nixon could be a great new author to try.
