Product Description

Review

'I adored Goddess of Vengeance last year, but I enjoyed The Power Trip even more - so much so that I finished it at 4am after one long sitting ... As usual, Collins' heroines are strong, ballsy and above all intelligent women who come out on top ... I savoured every line. Reading this is the most fun you can have with your clothes on' - Sara Lawrence, Daily Mail
'Lucky's back and she's as fabulous and fiery as ever... I raced through it and was gripped from start to finish. Without doubt, my best book of the year so far' - Daily Mail
'Sex, power and intrigue - no one does it better than Jackie' ***** - heat Magazine
'A tantalising novel packed with power struggles, greed and sex. This is Collins at her finest' - Closer
'"My girls would eat Christian Grey for breakfast"' - Interview, The Sun 5/10
'She is the undisputed Queen of Steam and her first bonkbuster was published before EL James could read a book, let alone write one. Jackie Collins, 75, has just released her 29th novel and sold a staggering 500 million copies since staring out in the 60s… "Sex should be fun and equal and erotic," says Jackie. "It's not about getting tied up and spanked. My women are not submissive. They're strong."… "My ambition was to write. I said, 'Screw it, I'm going to follow my dream'." And she did… Her first book, The World is Filled with Married Men, was published in 1968… Novels that followed caused an uproar with their explicit content. Her latest, The Power Trip, is no exception. It opens with a sex scene before telling the story of a Russian billionaire and his supermodel girlfriend who invite five couples on a yacht trip that goes horribly wrong… All Jackie really wants to do is carry on writing. "I'm a workaholic. I love what I do and I'll never stop"'
'Forty years on, her star shows no sign of waning - it is Collins' ability as a storyteller that goes some way towards explaining her long reign as "Queen of the Bonkbuster"'. - Irish Independent --Antonia Hoyle, Daily Mirror 11/10

Product Description

A Russian billionaire and his state of the art yacht. His beautiful and sexy supermodel girlfriend. And five dynamic, powerful and famous couples invited on the yacht's maiden voyage.

A senator and his lovely but unhappy wife. A very attractive movie star and his needy ex-waitress girlfriend. A famous black footballer and his interior designer wife. A male Latin singing sensation and his older English boyfriend. And a maverick writer with his Asian journalist female friend.

Could this be the trip of a lifetime? Or could this be the trip from hell?

Whatever happens on the high seas doesn't necessarily stay there.

The Power Trip - take it if you dare.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE POWER TRIP 2 Oct 2012
By Amanda TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Billionaire Aleksandr Kasianenko wishes to celebrate his girlfriend Bianca's birthday in style. Along with five other well known diverse couples they embark on a luxury trip aboard a yacht. However this holiday of a lifetime which starts out like a dream, turns out to be somewhat of a nightmare.
What I love about all the novels Jackie Collins has written is that you know you are in for a few hours of pure escapism, this one being no exception.
An interesting storyline reeling you in from the first page, a thoroughly entertaining read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Collins Satisfies Her Fans 4 Oct 2012
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Another best-seller in the making. Sheer adventure. The ingredients are Jackie's signatures of success whether a fan or not? Russian billionaire and influential Aleksandr Kasianenko takes his yacht on her maiden voyage with girlfriend, Bianca, a successful beauty in the world of modelling for a birthday treat. His other companions on the trip are famous and provide the author with the ideal mix for mystery, mayhem, mischief and melodrama. Five powerful couples, a senator, footballer, writer, movie star, and singer and their partners. The inevitable happens. Fame, fortune and stardom sink in an intrigue of their true selves as the yacht carries their secrets forward. No spoilers but they all need to look over their shoulders. The dominant partners develop with the plot but being Jackie Collins, keep an eye on the beguiling and street-wise females. If you admire Jackie Collins, this is right in your channel. The author has produced another excellent novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 10 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my holiday and if you like Jackie Collins you won't be disappointed. It has all the usual components of her style of writing. You can't wait to read on so you can find out how the cliffhanger chapters conclude. It's an easy read to pick up and put down whilst sunbathing and swimming. I would recommend to any Jackie Collins fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars power trip 31 Oct 2012
By webbo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is what you would expect - don't really know why I purchased it - probably good marketing! It feels like it is written to a formula and is very artificial with no sense of humour.
