An Offer You Can't Refuse by Jill Mansell

An Offer You Can't Refuse

Nothing could tear Lola and Dougie apart, except his mother…

Seventeen-year-old Lola has no intention of accepting when her boyfriend's snobbish mother offers her a huge bribe to break up with him. Then Lola discovers a secret that makes her think again, and the only way she can help one of the people she loves most in the world is to take the money and break Dougie's heart.
Ten years later, when Lola meets Dougie again, her feelings for him are as strong as ever. She'll do almost anything to get him back, but she can never tell him the truth. Can she overcome his bitterness and win his heart? She's attractive, persuasive, and endlessly optimistic, but even Lola's got her work cut out for her this time.

 This is the first and only book I have read written by Jill Mansell and I found the book to be easy to read and was instantly hooked. I instantly loved the main character, Lola, who was in the worst possible situation at the beginning of the story - keep your boyfriend or have £10,000... Lolca decides to take the money and run, something which I had a bit of a shout about when I was reading that part of the book.... I definitely formed a lot of opinions throughout reading this! Would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good debate..!

I have dropped this one by two points as the morals of this story did make me very angry  grrrrr!
