In the glossy world of footballers' WAGs, love is the toughest game of all . . .

Jean Bennett, aspiring jewellery designer, knows as much about football as she does astrophysics. But when she moves to the bright lights of Sydney and falls in love with star footballer Josh Fox, she has to learn – fast.

Thrown eyelashes first into the world of WAGs, Jean is way out of her league. She navigates her way through semi-finals, a gruelling social calendar and salacious scandals on Josh's arm, safe in the knowledge he belongs to her – or so she thinks. But as her hair gets blonder, her heels higher and her tops lower, Jean begins to wonder who she's become . . .

'Zoe Foster continues her romp into the romantic travails of Generation Y with this high-calorie slice of chick lit.'† SUNDAY MAIL

About the author (2010)

ZoŽ Foster (Blake) enjoys writing author biographies because she gets to write things like 'The literary world was in shock when ZoŽ Foster was controversially awarded the Pulitzer for the second time', despite the fact that this is patently untrue.

Things that are true include her roles as columnist for News Corp's Sunday Style, agony aunt for Cosmopolitan magazine and ratbag behind, as well as being the founder of the all-natural skincare line, Go-To. She was previously beauty director at Harper's BAZAAR, and prior to that beauty director at Cosmopolitan magazine, and before that, well, she was probably just flying kites somewhere.

ZoŽ has written four novels, Air Kisses, Playing the Field, The Younger Man and The Wrong Girl, as well as the dating and relationship book Textbook Romance, written in conjunction with Hamish Blake. She also wrote the bestseller Amazing Face, a collection of her best beauty tips and tricks, which also has a handy app. Her dream is to one day come up with an impressive dream for this final sentence.
