Internationally best-selling author Jackie Collins marks her 25th novel, one not to be missed. And it's all about her most popular heroine, the wildly beautiful Lucky Santangelo, still every bit as strong, sexy, and seductive as ever. But Lucky is older and wiser, and hot to reclaim her power position in Las Vegas. However, a deadly enemy from her past has resurfaced, a person determined to take everything from her, including the family she holds so dear: two sons and an out-of-control teenage daughter who is just as outrageous as Lucky herself. Like mother, like daughter. And if that old saying holds true, it's going to be one wild ride.

I loved the book; sex, celebrities, money and intrigues. Drop Dead Beautiful is great listing that allows you to relax and just enjoy. The narrator was excellent and really made the story perfect.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
I purchased due to reader Jonathan Davis as he read Sandra Browns Mean Streak, Fab!
Must use new 1.25x speed to update this novel.
I am not a fan of this author, but Mr. Davis narrates, so I gave it a try. This series, or at least this book reads like a long soap opera. We done for that type of story.
I am a fan of Mr. Davis, who unfortunately doesn't do much romance/suspense. His reviews for Sandra Brown were so high. He does Sci Fi and some suspense.
Author sensationalized bad behavior in a keystone cops storyline. Very light reading, but can entertain you if you love soaps.
And Buffalo George
One of the many Lucky Santangelo books, but the first I've read. It was long (15 hours plus) but was on sale and I had put it on haitus for awhile. Now, it's back. I could recognize the serialness of the book because it referred to previous events in Lucky's life. It seemed that every few minutes someone was jumping in the sack with someone else. Is that sexy? The book is also about the movie business, something I'm not particularly enamored with. So, maybe that's why it didn't click very well. The book seemed slow at first, but then, after all the characters were introduced and had sex at least once, it moved on. The epilogue tied it all up after an exciting conclusion (aren't they all?) Doubt if I'll read any more Collins--not my style.
