Prada And Prejudice by Katie Oliver

He’s a man in possession of a large fortune….but is he in want of a wife?!

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Natalie Dashwood loves to shop. After all, as the heiress to the renowned London department store Dashwood & James she’s been wearing designer shoes since she could walk! But a socialite’s life isn’t as perfect as you might imagine… Natalie’s spending is spiraling slightly out of control, her rock star boyfriend is engaged to someone else, and it seems the family business is in financial crisis. New high-flying business exec Rhys Gordon has been brought in to save the company from ruin, but what are his motives? And infuriatingly even a shoe-shopping spree can’t take her mind off his distracting and oh-so-charming smile… Couture and confetti mix with scandal and intrigue in this wonderful tale of retail, romance and redemption.


Nathalie Dashwood doesn't really work. She's the future heiress of a large department store and she has a company credit card, so she can buy what she likes. She loves to shop and has a fabulous sense of style. Dashwood & James aren't doing as well as she thinks they are doing and her spending has to stop. When her boyfriend dumps her by getting engaged to someone else at a party in front of everyone they know Nathalie has to start thinking about the future. Rhys Gordon has been hired to save the company and Nathalie is forced to work with him. He's arrogant and isn't afraid to hinder her with his measurements, but he's also kind and very good looking. Will they be able to make things work on both the personal and the business front? 
Nathalie has a flaw, she loves to shop. She also knows fashion and she can help to give the company a new impulse. There are three men who want her attention and that can be pretty exhausting. She loves her family and wants to protect them, but how far is she able to go to do that? Rhys is dependable and headstrong and he's determined to make something of his new project. The question is if he's taken the job because got ulterior motives. I liked that this book had a bit of intrigue in it as well. The plot is unexpected and has a great twist. I loved every page of this book. It was great to read about style, parties, business moves and great romance. I can't wait to read the second book in the series. Katie Oliver has made the department store come to life very well and I loved the description of the clothes. It made me want to shop at Dashwood & James very badly. Prada and Prejudice is a perfect holiday read and I liked it very much.
