Book Description

1 Jun 2012
WELCOME TO PARADISE Only the rich are invited. . . only the strongest survive Fame. Money. Success.

Lori wants them, Aurora is being destroyed by them and Stevie’s got them at her best friend’s expense. These three women are drawn unwittingly to the shores of Temptation Island, all looking for their own truth.

But they discover a secret so shocking, there’s no turning back. It’s wicked, it’s sensational. Are you ready to be told? But the glittering waters drown dark secrets. The island promises the one thing money can’t buy – and the price is devastating…

More About the Author

Hi! Come see me at victoriafox.net - and if you'd like to be updated when I have a new book out, sign up at victoriafox.net/sign-up. I'm also on Facebook.com/victoriafoxwrites, and spend too much time mucking about on Twitter @VFoxWrites. I'd love us to be in touch.

By day I live in London. By night I relax in my fantasy LA mansion, sipping Krug in a Jacuzzi and watching a bare-chested man clean out my pool. I was born in 1983, went to boarding school in my teens and studied English at university, where I wrote my first (unpublished) bonkbuster: The Hardest Part. It was truly dreadful.

After working in publishing for a few years, I decided to quit and follow my dream...and I haven't looked back since. My best moment as a writer so far was when my idol Jackie Collins said 'Victoria Fox is always a fun read!' That's good enough for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect beach read 13 Jun 2012
By Sharon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Having read and loved Hollywood Sinners last year, and seen the synopsis for this book, I had high expectations for this book and overall I wasn't disappointed.

The book follows three central characters who are all completely different with nothing in common; Aurora, a spoilt rich kid who is going off the rails, Lori, from the wrong side of town but wishing to escape from the drudgery of working in the salon with her step-family, and Stevie, who has moved to the U.S to try and make it as an actor.

At first glance there doesn't appear to be any connection between these 3 women but we soon find out through the twists and turns in the plot that the link is the enigmatic and mysterious JB Moreau and the island getaway of Cacatra.

The story is jam-packed full of sex, secrets and scandals which are the classic backbone of any bonkbuster novel and there is certainly an interesting mix of characters, some that you'll love and others that you definitely won't!

If I had to say anything negative I guess it would have to be that the title of the book is a little misleading as it seems to suggest that the story takes place on the 'temptation island' but that's not the case. The majority of the storyline takes place in Los Angeles and not on the island of Cacatra itself but this is just a minor point and didn't put me off the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars perfect antidote to the winter blues 12 Jan 2013
By joesmum
Format:Paperback
I have just finished this book and am missing it already.
I received it as a Birthday present, after reading Sinners by the same author.
Very reminisent of Jackie Collins. But good to know there are new authors out there who can write a good "old fashioned" bonkbuster.
The plot is fast paced and the 3 main characters likeable.
Forget the rain & snow, the post Christmas O/D and the "new year, new you" diet. Snuggle up on the sofa and banish those winter blues with a trip to Temptation Island.....I can almost feel the sun on my skin!

By JK TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Have to say I didn't expect this book to be so long - approx. 600 pages - almost double the usual fiction which is quite impressive. To give Victoria Fox her fair share of credit she's done a good job overall. So many people have reviewed the plot already that I'm only going to give a brief outline. Three different women, with different hopes and dreams, are drawn onto an island through their relationships with the shadowy J B Moreau. The book follows each woman; it's basically three different stories which blend into one, as they either realise their dreams or crash and burn. There's no real Prince Charming, no hero on a white horse, the girls have to learn to sink or swim on their own but; I'm not going to spoil it for you and tell you whether they do or not. Not difficult to follow, the plot's never over complicated and there's quite a bit of trashy/raunchy behaviour to keep you interested. As far as romance goes Temptation Island is a decent read, easy to dip in and out of, very easy to follow and Victoria Fox keeps the pace up which is quite amazing for a novel of this length.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so tempting 6 Aug 2014
By L
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read the reviews and was tempted but not as enjoyable for me as anticipated. Found it jumped from one character to another abruptly. The first half of the book was very bitty. Has lots of twists and turns and sexual exploits tying the characters into a web at the finish. Did get to grips with it but felt the ending was rushed. Got on daily deal wouldn't pay full price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, Loved it, Loved it! 24 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my second Victoria Fox novel and I couldn't put it down! It's so full of intrigue I felt totally transported to a life far removed from my own. Each page is filled with such vivid detail that I could almost imagine being in the book with the characters, feeling their pain or their joy and wanting good things to happen to those who deserved it. I really enjoyed reading it.

For the first 50% of the book I was undecided - they never got to the Island until over 50% the way through. The story is setting the characters up in the first half. By 75% the way through I could not put it down as the stories of the three leading ladies in the book started to intertwine. It is worth a read around the pool on holiday. A scandalous Hollywood story in the Jackie Collins genre. Victoria Fox is not yet as good as Jackie Collins but she is not far off!
