Publisher's Summary

Jackie Collins’ fierce and wildly beautiful heroine Lucky Santangelo is back with a vengeance—in a novel full of power, passion, revenge, and the raging family dynamics of the Santangelo clan. And as always, Lucky comes out on top.

Lucky runs a high-profile casino and hotel complex, The Keys, in Vegas. Lennie, her movie-star husband, is still writing and directing successful independent films, while Max, her stubborn and gorgeous teenage daughter is about to celebrate her 18th birthday, and her son, Bobby, owns a string of hot clubs. Lucky has everything. Family. Love. Life. And everything is exactly what billionaire businessman Armand Jordan is determined to take from her, one way or another.

Born a Prince in the small but affluent Middle Eastern country of Akramshar, Armand comes to America with his American mother at an early age and rises to become a real-estate business titan. Armand regards women as nothing more than breeding mares or sexual playthings, so when his people inform him that the one property he covets more than anything, The Keys, is not for sale, he is shocked. That a mere woman would dare to turn down his offer to buy The Keys is unthinkable, and Armand vows to force Lucky’s hand, whatever it takes. And so the battle for power begins.

Meanwhile Bobby is dealing with shady Russian investors, while his girlfriend—smart and independent Denver Jones—is becoming a Deputy D.A. in the L.A. drug unit. And Max is busy embarking on a forbidden affair with a sexy young movie star—an affair they have to keep on the down-low lest Lucky finds out.

The word is that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”, and what happens in Goddess of Vengeance will blow your mind!

    "Fun listen but the male narrator is awful."
    If you could sum up Goddess of Vengeance in three words, what would they be?

    Classic Jackie.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The male narrator who begins the book needs to remember that this is not a dime store dectective novel. I hate how he delivers the lines! Say the words normally, not like your Sam Spade waiting for the mysterious blond to walk through your dimly lit office in a haze of smoke and mist. I mean come on. The rest of the narrators did a good job and kept the focus on telling the story not trying to make themselves into the star of the book. Not sure if it was Christian Baskous or David C. Wells but one of them needs to check his ego at the door and just read the darn book. Thank goodness he wasn't the only narrator or I'd have to delete the book and not listen to the rest of it.


    Any additional comments?

    As always Jackie's books keep me engaged and entertained. After listening to an extremely lengthy and some what emotionally difficult book, listening to a Jackie Collins novel is just what I needed.

    "Oh Jackie Stop"
    Would you try another book from Jackie Collins and/or the narrators?

    Not if Jackie Collins is one of the narrators.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Goddess of Vengeance?

    Don't know it was very hard to listen to.


    How could the performance have been better?

    By not letting MS Collins narrate


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Don't know could not finish.


    Any additional comments?

    Jackie Collins should stick to writing. I have read her books in the pasted and really liked them, but for some reason listening to this book was very hard. My first audio book of a Jackie Collins novel.

    "Another home run for Jackie"

    This is a typical Jackie Collins novel. And if you love Jackie's books and more to the point, Lucky Santangelo, you will enjoy this book. My only complaint is that Jackie decided to do the voice of Lucky herself...big mistake. Lucky is supposed to be Italian. Jackie's English accent doesn't fit the character at all.

    "Entertaining but quite ridiculous"

    This is like a modern Dallas soap opera on serious steroids, based in Vegas, packed with F-bombs left and right. Everyone is either one or all: richest in vegas, most gorgeous in hollywood, #1 box office star, most sexy, owns the most successful (hotel, club, investment firm, you name it), takes drugs, is royalty, etc.
    .
    This is my first Lucky Santangelo novel and first Jackie Collins as well. I do find it entertaining but also ridiculously over the top. Language doesn't usually throw me but many of the characters use the F-bomb in the same way and so often it seems gratuitous rather than adding to the characters, well character! AND, my biggest gripe of all is that Jackie Collins narrates Lucky, the main character; a sixty+ voice narrating a 40+ leading character who is also supposed to be this most sexy, beautiful successful woman, mother, wife just doesn't fit. I picture Jackie Collins whenever she reads because her voice is so distinctive and does sound much older than the Lucky character. Too bad. All the other narrators are excellent which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 1 in the performance category. I listen while I commute so sometimes I miss something and since one narrator narrates several characters I don't know which character is talking because the voice isn't changed up enough.
    ...
    Unfortunately I wish I had used my credit towards a more worthy book...

    "A More Mellow Santangelo Novel"
    Would you listen to Goddess of Vengeance again? Why?

    Perhaps at a later date yes. I would like to read all the Santangelo novels in order.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lucky has always been my favorite. She is what every woman dreams of being.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    The cast was fine except for the voice of Lucky. I was very disappointed. I didnt expect the accent or the age in her voice. It was actually a let down.


    Any additional comments?

    The Santangelo novels hits us like fireworks. I guess it is to be expected that as the characters age, the story mellows. In the last two novels though I kept expecting more edge of your seat reading. I still enjoyed the book though.

    "Good as always...."

    If you've read/listened to Jackie Collins -then this book will fall in line with the rest... no suprises - ends as they all do, but that's why I keep picking up her books... because I like the story of how they get to the happy ending.

    This book has MANY different narrators and voices. The begining of the book was almost difficult to follow the women's conversation with the male narrator interjecting every couple of words. I'd say that the narration is distracting at times - I found myself almost annoyed by their voices rather than captivated.

    If you are a Jackie Collins fan - you will enjoy this book.
