This is without doubt the grittiest of all the Jackie Collins books I have read so far. Although it still has all the elements of her other books, sex, fame, murder etc. the characters and plot are so much deeper and darker than any of her other creations and it works fantastically well. When I bought it I was expecting something much more light hearted, but I am so glad that I was wrong! I found myself getting truly emotionally connected to certain characters, and at one point found myself close to tears, which is rare for me when reading. I think it worked that the focus was mainly on the two main characters, rather than flitting between a variety of them as in her other books, so she was able to delve fully into their back stories giving them depth and developing them to the extent that you feel you know them personally. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
Another great book from Jackie Collins, some of the reviews before I read it made me think twice about buying it. I didn't regret it one bit. I was hooked from the beg and finished it within 3 days. Another book that let's you escape into a different World. I would recommend it to anyone.
All the usual Hollywood rags to riches involving a very poor boy and girl who get separated and then climb to stardom before they meet again. Well worth reading even though predictable with a charming conclusion better than I expected.
I enjoyed this book. 5* definetly well deserved. I like Jackie Collins but this book was very indepth and more romantic than her usual books. Lots of sex yes! As you'd expect with Jackie Collins books, but more of a romance novel. I loved it!!!! Worth a buy and a read.I won't spoil it for you but give it a read.
