'Forget slushy romance, this steamy bonkbuster packed with scandal and deception is a festive 50 Shades-esque thriller!' Closer --Closer
'This gloriously over the top and lavish story is packed with Hollywood-style drama from hired hitmen to fallen actresses, to dazzling diamonds and red-hot bedroom scenes. In fact, it all gets quite Fifty Shades racy at times (though the sex is better written and less cringey than Ana and Christian s, thank goodness!).

Rebecca Chance effortlessly writes a book that has the reader gripped from the first few pages. I was completely hooked to the story, nobody could drag me away from it! I even took to carrying the book everywhere with me in case I had a few moments to fit in a few pages of reading, and I was staying up late at night in bed glued to the words! Wow.
The characters are brilliantly written. Rebecca Chance writes each character with so much depth and personality that they all spring to life. The amount of detail given to every character was perfect as I could clearly see them all in my mind, and it made the story so much more enjoyable as I could picture every single scene and got lost in the story. I don't want to say too much about the characters or storyline as I don't want to give anything away, but the writing is fantastic, the story is fast-paced and at the end I felt like I had been on the most thrilling ride of my life.
Bad Angels has everything you could want in a bonkbuster. There's a lot of sex, and I mean loads! Drop your 50 Shades of Grey and pick up this book immediately, because the sex scenes in this book are a whole lot sexier and steamier, trust me! In Bad Angels we are also given lots of glamour, celebrities, a gripping storyline and scandal - Perfect for readers who want to sit down and escape into their books for many glorious hours! As for me, I'm now off to purchase Rebecca's other books! This book is fun, it is saucy, it is dangerous and it is steamy - a must-read.
But Bad Angels isn't your typical fun festive read as Dasha Khalovsky goes on the rampage, plotting revenge and murder. I spent most of the book switches allegiances with Dasha. To begin with I thought she was a wonderful pantomime villainous bitch - witty, vengeful and used to getting what she wants but it soon transpired she was ruthless and more than a little unhinged. As mad as Dasha is, she creates some brilliant action packed chapters towards the end of the book.
One of my favourite characters was the concierge, Andy. He is introduced quite gently to begin with as he helps Khalovsky transform Limehouse Reach for Christmas but I was pleased when he featured more and more and ended up with his own storyline. Alongside the elaborately rich and famous, Andy is normal and down to earth and, most important of all, secure in who he is. The one-sided rivalry between Andy and Khalovsky's PA, Sergei, was very amusing.
I also really enjoyed Jon and Aniela's storyline and their blossoming relationship is rather sweet once you get past the rampant bedroom antics! Although Andy, Jon and Aniela's stories were my favourite, I didn't find any of the storylines or characters weak and enjoyed them all.
