Mini Reviews: Young, Loaded & Fabulous (Book 1&2) by Kate Kingsley

I admit that I don't have much to say about these two books. They are for quick read, you know, just to relax your mind for a while and I don't think readers take them very seriously either. If you love to read about rich (and spoilt) kids who are involved in fighting, backstabbing, bitching each other and of course falling in love then you may like Young, Loaded and Fabulous.

London socialites Alice Rochester and Natalya Abbot are glamorous, sexy, spoilt and only sixteen. When they're not at their prestigious private school, St. Cecilias, just outside London (where they rub shoulders with the children of Europe's elite), they can be found partying in London's private members clubs or jetting off to the most sophisticated European cities. Alice and Tally have ruled, undisputed, at the top of St. Cecilias' social hierarchy since their arrival at the school three years ago. But now trouble is brewing; friendships with boys are getting complicated and sparking jealousies between the girls, and, to make matters worse, a thoroughly unwelcome American girl has just arrived.

Book 1 is pretty much about how Tristan comes back and builds his relationship with Alice and then suddenly everything goes downhill. There aren't many happenings in this book and I find the characters quite weird. Alice can be nice and goofy one moment, then the next she's so annoying and mean. And Tristan, I don't really know how he really feels for his best friend either. The character I can tolerate with is Dylan. She seems okay and doesn't want to hurt anyone at all. I feel quite bad for her at some point because Alice is trying too hard to make her life miserable.

The thing I remember most about this book is how lonely and not cared for these kids are by their own parents. Guess it happens to rich children all the time.

Love is in the air at St Cecilia's: Alice Rochester has a new man in her life, much to her ex Tristan's dismay, Tally Abbott and hot new teacher Mr Logan's secret tutorials are getting cosier and new girl Dylan Taylor is being well and truly romanced by Jasper. But when the crew all head over to Rome for Alice's cousin's lavish engagement party hosted by Italian Vogue tensions are high. Will it all end happily ever after?

Book 2 is a little more interesting than book 1. Now Tristan wants Alice back but she's hanging out with her new boyfriend. For Tally, she seems to be head over heals with her teacher. I see more connections between the characters in this book and it's more eventful too. It's fun seeing Alice and Tristan playing their game of love and get together (sort of) at at the end. There's less meanness towards Dylan to so I guess it's a good thing.

Rating: 2.5/5
