“Collins’ novels are an over-the top, steamy delight. Clearly she had as much fun writing them as we do reading them.” - The Guardian
Fontaine Khaled, former jet-setting supermodel with an insatiable sexual appetite, returns in the much-anticipated follow-up to the international bestseller, The Stud. Divorced from her financier husband following a string of salacious scandals in London surrounding her nightclub, Hobo, Fontaine’s now single and ready for adventure, but young men and anonymous amore are all this ballsy British beauty bargains for. Then Greek playboy Nico Constantine enters the picture. . .
This devastatingly handsome charmer is still reeling from the tragic loss that propelled him into a lifestyle of heavy spending, wanton womanizing, and a dangerous dalliance with gambling that has essentially cost him everything. While hatching a plan to pay back his debt, he encounters the incomparable Fontaine, and he can’t deny his immediate and intense passion for her when he makes her steamy acquaintance on a flight from New York to London.
While Nico needs to use Fontaine to stay alive on the streets, in her bed is where he truly comes alive. But can Fontaine, with her deep distrust for men in general, see beyond his scheming and into his heart?
The bitch is back, baby. . . But she’s met her match in Nico.
As this wild tour de force rollercoasters from Greece to Los Angeles, from Las Vegas to New York to London, will love prevail? Or will temptation get the best of them?

Love the way the story unfolded. The plot rolls along smoothly and keeps you wanting to find out. V
what is going to happen next. When Fontaine with her style and sense of entitlement meets Nico who is suave and has class, it is inevitable ble that they should be attracted to each other. They are a mirror image of each other. It is just a shame that they find out later they are both broke. Nico lost all his money gambling in Vegas, and borrowed even more from the house. He lost it as well and travels to England, to try to find some money to pay his debt. The story keeps you on your toes, but the ending seems too abrupt. It leaves you wanting some answers to the strands in the story that are left hanging. For example, does Nico ever pay back the money he owes the casino? Does Bernie get a hold of Nico finally, and what happens? Nico is faithful when he truly loves a woman, but will the flighty Fontaine stick with him?
