As a teen, I devoured everything Louise Bagshawe (in her pre-Tory MP incarnation) produced. Career Girls, Tall Poppies, The Movie, Venus Envy... I read and re-read and thoroughly loved the trashy lot of them. So this, my first Tilly Bagshawe, had a lot to live up to in terms of familial expectations! To an extent, she didn't disappoint. She's perhaps even raunchier than Louise was in her hey-day, and that's saying something. Both Sasha and Theresa fit the Bagshawe mould of strong, intelligent women on a vengeful mission, and you really can't help but root for either of them. The settings are textbook glamourous affairs, but it's in hero creation and development that Tilly perhaps doesn't hit the heights attained by her sis. Or maybe I've just got older (a decade may do that to a girl) and find less of a no-holds-barred alpha male more attractive than the breathtakingly arrogant types trotted out in books like Scandalous.

Still, for an indulgent candyfloss beach read, I can't really fault this too much. It ticks all the titillating boxes and will keep you turning the pages waiting for the next explosive incident. All I'd say is: maybe check out Louise Bagshawe's backlist first, it's pretty identical fare, but somehow quite a bit juicier!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Sasha Miller is a young Cambridge physics student. She sets off for Cambridge with aspirations to become a scientist. What she doesn't realise is that she will pay the ultimate price for her ambitions. Her tutor, Theo Dexter, looks like a movie star. He has it all, the looks, the charm and the intelligence. He is also a married man. Sasha finds herself on the wrong end of Theo's self centred ways and leaves the UK for good with her heart broken. She is determined to make a life for herself so heads to the US and finds herself taking her career on a whole other path. Meanwhile, Theo's wife Theresa is also suffering. When Theo casts her aside for a younger and more attractive woman she too tries to move on with her life. What she doesn't realise is that in years to come not only will she meet up with Sasha Miller once again, but she will be asked to seek revenge against Theo.

Oh...my...GOD! Where have I been? This book has been in my ever growing pile of books to read for a little while and to be frank, would have stayed towards the bottom were it not for the rave reviews for it on certain websites. I am so glad that I made the time to read this because it was a corker of a book.

Although I tend to read a lot of crime and thriller type books I love a good Chick Lit book. I find that most of the more mainstream authors I have read or at least tried one of their books. Tilly Bagshawe however failed to reach my radar. I am also a huge fan of the Jackie Collins type smutty `bonkbusters' (I can almost hear people sighing with disdain). Tilly Bagshawe managed to create a perfect combination between the `bonkbuster' and the traditional `chick lit'.

"Scandalous" isn't rocket science, it doesn't tax the brain but what it does do is give the reader a good read. For that, think holiday reads or on the plane. Tilly Bagshawe writes in a way that pulls the reader in and doesn't let go until the end. A very enjoyable way of passing the time even if I could see the ending pretty much from a third into the book!

A young girl, bright, brilliant and naïve; her university professor, handsome, seductive and treacherous; and his wife, sweet, supportive and blind to his faults. It's during Sasha Miller's second undergraduate year that the scandal breaks. But while Sasha is left reeling by Theo Dexter's betrayal, his career is on the up. For his wife Theresa, though, success is the last thing she looked for.

Sticking by Theo through everything, even putting up with his philandering by believing his lies, she hates their new glamorous life and pines for the old days of academia. Not that she has much to worry about, since she no longer fits Theo's high-profile, and he's ready for the next stage of fame. Theo's star is rising, his success is assured, yet there's one small thing he's forgotten. Pride comes before a fall, and Sasha Miller is determined to make it a big one.

Ah, just what every holiday read needs - lost innocence, betrayal, shattered lives, driven women, dastardly men, and vengeance, lots and lots of vengeance. From his first appearance, Theo is loathsome, Tilly Bagshawe doesn't give him a single redeeming feature. And that's the beauty of this book. There is no sympathy, no remorse for Theo, he stars off repellent and gets worse. It's safe to hate him as much as you want, in the full knowledge that justice was coming. It's a steady build, as intricately woven as a thriller, with a lovely emotional pay out at the end.

Theo was so well-crafted, however, that I did feel a lack elsewhere. Sasha is obsessively driven, even before Theo. What he does to her is awful, and how it impacts on her life does create sympathy, but she isn't likeable. Unlike Theresa who is scatty, loyal and sweet - a bit like a spaniel.
