Product Description

Review

'A racy read following three powerful Las Vegas women living in the glitzy adult playground and playing the dangerous game of sharing the same bloke... For some sexy escapism it earns its place next to your factor 15.'
--Heat

`That he understands women so well is also possibly a surprise. But, best of all, he doesn't just know his luxury goods, he can really write... The Strip follows on from last year's gloriously sexy and well-observed Tan Lines... Aside from some seriously sexy set pieces, JJ Salem has weaved together a plot more than a few thriller writers would be proud of. Top stuff.' --Daily Mirror

Format: Paperback
The Strip centers on three women: Kristin, Jennifer and Billie. From what I can tell, Billie was in J.J.'s first novel Tan Lines but we get sufficiently caught up on her story for it to not be a major issue. In fact, I wouldn't have known except for the fact that I read the Tan Lines synopsis. Anyway, these three women are all paying a male gigolo for his services, the beautiful Cam who had the potential to be a big NFL star until injury curbed that for him. Each woman has their reasons for seeing Cam, mainly because their husbands are failing them greatly, not only in the bedroom but in their lives in general. To make the story even more interesting, all of the girl's know each other. Jennifer is both Kristin and Billie's therapist and Billie works as a singer/dancer at the hotel Kristin's husband owns so they're friends.

The Strip is a world away from what I usually read, blockbuster novels not really being my cup of tea, but from time to time I do like a good trashy read and The Strip was that. The book isn't full of bedroom antics, despite seemingly being so, nor is it explicit in any way, but the whole glitz and glamour is still there in abundance. Which is surprising really because the book is far from a glitzy novel, it's more gritty, particularly as Cam ends up dead in the opening chapter before spooling back in time, leading up to Cam's untimely death as we try to figure out who was behind it. The book encompasses a lot of themes, infidelity a high one obviously, but also abusive relationships, what it is to be in a loveless marriage, among other things. Obviously with such an escapist read, all of the issues are put together into the melting pot and are left to see where it will all pan out in the end.

The characters in the novel are definitely larger than life.

The Strip is a fast paced, exciting thrill ride through the lives of three powerful Vegas women: Kristen, Jennifer and Billie. They're all connected by one man - Cam - who is super hot, I completely fell in love with him! There's a great thriller element added to the bonkbuster staples and this set it apart from lots of other books in this genre. I also loved how the author described Las Vegas, I really felt like I was there. Recommended!

I was a little wary of this book as its not my usual type. But i liked the back cover and thaught i would give it a try.

I couldnt put the book down, although it is a little slow & tedious as times, but its a good read full of twists, turns and shockers. Its a quick read too.
