Hollywood Wives by Jackie Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was my first Jackie Collins novel that I’ve ever read, and all I have to say is…GOOD LORD THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING. I enjoyed every single moment of it-like watching a TV-Reality show about Hollywood Wives living it up in LA with their husbands, along with the sex, scandal and did someone say kidnapping? I think YES, yes someone did.
So I decided to break it down by character, starting with….
Lissa Roman: She’s a mega movie and singer star who’s working on a show in Vegas, and her fourth husband, Gregg, had cheated on her. And to make it worse, once she left him and filed for divorce, he started going nuts, doing the Michael Lohan and run his mouth to the press, saying all these horrible things about her, even sleeping with one of the press! Crazy, isn’t it? Then he got arested in Saks because one of his old flings assumed he raped her in the dressing room. Sucks, huh?
Lissa’s daughter, Nicci Stone, is nineteen and wild, but she’s getting married soon to Evan Richter, but she’s having second thoughts about him when she’s thinking about Brian, Evan’s brother. Thanks to Brian, Nicci finds out that Evan was once engaged and never told her about it (hrm, sounds like another character from the UK…..) and then after spending time with Brian, she gets kidapped by a man named Eric Vernon, who puts her in a dirty room and tells Lissa how much he wants so he can leave the country as someone else. But sadly he didn’t go out of the country-instead he went to jail. So sad…
Taylor Singer is married to Lawrence J. Singer, a producer. She wants to star in her own movie, but she couldn’t get it off the ground. So she finds one in Oliver Rock, and they have an affair. Taylor really wants to go back into the acting business so bad that she decided to take the role in a lesbian-themed cable movie, in which she actually enjoyed. In the end, Larry asked for a divorce, and Taylor became another Hollywood Wife.
Michael Scorsinni, the former NYC cop, runs a private detective agency with a friend, in which Lissa Roman needed his assistance to uncover Gregg’s affair and at the same time, fall in love with her. Though he had a girlfriend, Carol, he wasn’t in love with her and he wanted to break up with her, but then she tells him she’s pregnant-which, at the end turned out to be a pregnancy scare. But Michael did help catch Eric Vernon and put him in jail.
In conclusion, this book was amazing and I loved it a whole lot-and I wanna read more from Jackie Collins one day.
