Brief intro: SHE’S A HOT-BLOODED BEAUTY IN LOVE WITH POWER, HUNGRY FOR PLEASURE… WILD, NOTORIOUS, TROUBLE… SHE’S… LUCKY. THE FABULOUS HEROINE OF CHANCES RETURNS.
With the sensual grace of a panther, Lucky Santangelo prowled her Las Vegas casino, restless, ready, eager for action. That night began a dazzling odyssey, filled with dangerous passion and sun-drenched sex, sadistic vengeance and breathless suspense. From the decadent luxury of California, to Paris, New York and a private Greek island, Lucky fought for her father’s honor, for ruthless triumph, for the wild card of a fabulous love. Her rivals; an ice-cold Hollywood wife…a much-married heiress strung out on cocaine…a jaded magnate hooked on power…a crazed hoodlum lusting for murder. But Lucky was a gambIer and a lover, a woman who ruled her empire and pursued her man with the potent Santangelo strength … her way, on her terms, whatever the odds. Jackie Collins tops the sensational success of Hollywood Wives and Chances with Lucky, “so hot it will have to be printed on asbestos.”
Review: Here's something that every reader knows :
There are books for every mood.
I sometimes find myself in the mood for some scandal and drama situations in the books I read.
However, the writes of these days can't write a scandal worth sh*t.
It's all about horniness at first sight, hate but horny you, me horny you not me hate, and all those silly stuff they call stepbrother romances *sigh*.
So I went and read accidentally a book writen in the 80's .
And I discovered a mess, skipped some POV-s (Sorry Stephen and Eden) , got a headache coming, and met my heroine crush.
Her name is Lucky, she's bold, beautiful, smart, business savy, and takes sh*t from no one.
When Lucky gets crossed, she shows people who's the boss. She does everything she wants to , and sex for her is always for herself.
She's nobody's victim and I did not see her whine neither in her thoughts.
Jackie Collins is a writer that does scandal very well, but she also writes tough b*tches who can remain tough without loosing their femininity , and who live their lives for their own.
What I liked about Lucky is that if a man wants to join the ride, he better get his own car
