Wives v. Girlfriends
There's no such thing as a level playing field when it comes to love. Take Jasmine. Just about to marry her footballer fiancee, her dream wedding should be the chance she's been waiting for to bury the secrets in her past. Lila gave up everything for her marriage. In return she got a megastar husband, two beautiful children...and a broken heart. All Maxine wants is a ring on her finger. Three-times divorced, she's still in love with the idea of being a wife. But is she chasing the wrong dream? And Grace? What she can't tell you about being the mistress isn't worth knowing...Four women, all with a story to tell. And over one explosive summer, where glamour girls rub shoulders with Russian money-men and crime godfathers meet Hollywood royalty, the truth will out. Bold, brazen and with a heart of gold, Wives v. Girlfriends is a story of husbands and lovers, friends and enemies. It's about working out what it takes to be happy, and how far you'll go to get it.
