So I bet you are all wondering what I thought then?!... Well I must admit I was nervous because after reading the Butlers and the characters becoming part of my life I really didn't know what to expect. BUT I am happy to report that Kimberly has pulled out all the punches and totally nailed it!
The story starts off with one very intriguing prologue told from Jason’s point of view introducing himself. I was left thinking OMG how different is this. We then follow his story of Life of Crime told from third person perspective.Where we meet some very different characters. Some that you will like and of course some that you wont like. It wouldn't be a Kimberly Chambers book if it didn't have some bad guys in it.
I am not going to bore you with the plot because the blurb says it all….Plus you really need to read this for yourself because it’s freaking amazing….Which ticked all the boxes for me.
It is a story about Relationships, secrets, lies betrayal and plenty of grit. Which I highly recommend giving it 5 massive stars.
Ive read all kims books and when the vinnie saga finished i was so sad to know i would not hear from that family again..but now kim brings me these characters and i love her for it! I miss kim in between books that right now i hope shes penning another one as i genuinely cant stand the wait! Best author in this genre..dont change kim..keep doing what u do..u go girlfriend!
Nevertheless, she is a skilful writer and her characters and the incidents in their lives are extremely well depicted. She tells of love and despair, sex, greed, violence, compassion, but above all, abject poverty and ruthless ambition.
Jason is a wide-boy, making a dishonest living in any way that offers. But he has what it takes to attract women like bees to a honeypot. Melissa, the daughter of a business tycoon, has never known hardship. Her rich father makes her just the sort of girl Jason is seeking, to lift him from the life he hates, and set him on the ladder to wealth and comfort. Well-written, but too long. I had to give up before quite reaching the end.
It was funny, sad, hilarious and I can honestly say, I am so engrossed in these books by Kimberley, I feel as if I’ve climbed right in and I’m there, with the characters in the room! Such is the reality and characters of the book, it comes to life and you can’t help feeling you’re there. I sympathised with Jason, loved him, loved his cheek and patter but then most ladies love a wide boy. Melissa came into her own as the book develops and I won’t spoil it but Kimberley has done it again!
It’s a 10 from me. Keep it up girl, cos I am sure as the day is long going to have withdrawals if you suddenly stop writing!
I loved every other book and so did my daughter.
But she even said it was dull and boring right from the start and I got to the middle and couldn't carry on.
I don't know what the other reviewers were reading to say they couldn't put it down.
That's all I kept doing was putting it down because it was so dead. And just dragged on.
I want my £7.99 back load of rubbish.
Please write quicker one book a year isn't enough.
This book is as good as her previous ones, I didnt want it to end. I am not going to go into detail about it as I dont want to spoil it for you.
If you've never read any of her books before just google "Kimberley Chambers books in order" and read from the beginning. There are some standalone and some in small series. You will not be disappointed I promise you.
If you were (or are) a fan of Martina Cole you will love Kimberley Chambers books.
