Book Summary of Altar Ego

A wickedly funny novel from the bestselling author of The Boy Who Fell to Earth.

Query: would it be a serious breach of etiquette to run out on my own wedding?

This is the question Becky Steele finds herself asking, on the morning of her very own wedding. Having finally managed to fit into her meringue dress after weeks of drinking only skimmed water, she is suddenly uncertain about what exactly she wants.

Yes, she loves Julian, but is she quite ready to become a proper grown-up, and give up on the joys of the single life? Julian might be the right man, but has she had enough wrong ones?

Things get more complicated still whentemptation arrives in the form of gorgeous rockstar toy boy Zack. And it looks like Julian might be making a few contingency plans of his own...
