Three high-powered Hollywood couples, two hot affairs, one underage Russian ex-hooker, a passionate murder—and the players' lives are changed forever in bestselling Jackie Collins's Married Lovers
Cameron Paradise, a stunningly beautiful twenty-four-year-old personal trainer, flees Hawaii and her champion-surfer husband, Gregg, in the middle of one of his abusive tirades and makes her way to L.A. Tall, blond, with a body to die for, it doesn't take Cameron long to find a job at an exclusive private fitness club where she encounters LA's most important players. She has plans to open her own studio one day, and while every man she meets comes on to her, she is more focused on saving money and working hard than getting caught up in the L.A. scene of wild parties and recreational drugs.
Until she meets Ryan Lambert, an extremely successful independent movie producer. Ryan is married to overly privileged Mandy Lambert, the daughter of Hamilton J. Heckerling, a Hollywood power-player son-of-a-bitch mogul. Ryan has never cheated on his demanding Hollywood Princess wife, but when he meets Cameron, all bets are off, especially since she's seeing his best friend Don Verona, the devastatingly attractive talk-show host and legendary player.
In her sizzling blockbuster, internationally bestselling author Jackie Collins explores what happens when lust and desire collide with marriage and power—and the results lead to murder.
The prolific Collins's latest book details the lives of three Southern California couples and throws all of their dirty laundry into the street. Filled with the traditional Collins clich s, the story is far from original; however, the narration provided by Ilyana Kadushin, Jen Cohn, Greg Abbey and Collins herself, is actually quite strong. While Collins is clearly the odd one out here as her voice tends to carry a lofty, over the top, soap opera-esque tone, the rest of the cast deliver strong performances that bring a slight sense of realism to the story. Abbey in particular reads with a firm and confident voice in his understated performance, which helps to carry the story along. A St. Martin's hardcover.
As usual Jackie doesn't let her readers down, but she definitely makes them begging for more!! I've been her fan for years and will continue <3
