Summary (from Things aren’t pretty for Emerson Watts.

Em was sure there couldn’t be anything worse than being a brainiac the body of a teenaged supermodel.

But it turned out she was wrong. Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who’s gone mysteriously missing, a brother who’s shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, a former best friend who’s intent on destroying Stark Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love, and a British heartthrob who’s written a song about her that’s topping the charts.

How can Em balance all that with school, runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. Johns — especially when she’s got ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op; a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships; a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side…

Not to mention trying to convince the love of her life that models aren’t really airheads after all…especially one model in particular.

But then, nobody said it was going to be easy being Nikki.

Review: This is the second book in the Airhead series. I really enjoy reading a series because you really get to know the characters – which is one of my favorite parts of this book.

The more I read about them, the more I like them. Lulu is really growing on me. I’m even liking Steven, Nikki Howard’s brother, who when he first appeared I immediately disliked. But he’s not such a bad guy anymore. But I’m not liking all the characters more. I’m disliking Brandon more and more. He’s more like his father than I thought.

I really really hope that Nikki and Christopher end up together. They both obviously like each other. I think they’re meant for each other too. Hopefully Brandon doesn’t get in the way and mess things up beyond repair.

I’m really intrigued to see what will happen in the last book. Being Nikki leaves off in an interesting spot (that makes me want to read the next book immediately), and I have no idea how Nikki is going to figure things out, although I’m sure she can do it, afterall, if she can handle being a model she can probably do just about anything.


Disclosure: I got this book from the library.

  1. Great review! This series is actually one of my favorite ones by Cabot. Also, I adore Lulu! I thought she was kind of annoying in the first book but after awhile I started to think she was really funny.
