Publisher's Summary

He started with nothing, and built an empire. She was born to bad times - and lived through much worse. Orphans and outlaws alike, Gino Santangelo and Carrie Jones were survivors in a harsh, loveless world....a passionate young Italian and an exotic dark beauty whose chance meeting yields a secret that can't be spoken for years to come.

From the luxury of Park Avenue to the early days of Las Vegas, the raw heat of jazz-era Harlem to the brutality of gangland Chicago, the Santangelo saga begins to unfold - a tale of secrets, betrayal, and unbridled lust that sets the stage for one of the most unforgettable heroines that Jackie Collins ever created: the incomparable Lucky Santangelo!

Abridged version doesn't do series justice

I love this whole series starting with Chances, Lucky, and Lady Boss, but the abridged is all that is offered and it SO doesn't do the books justice. Otherwise I would have rated it far higher. Please Please offer the unabridged!!!!

NOT THE WHOLE BOOK!!

I’ve read this book a few times. Very disappointed that the audible cut out quite a bit. It’s read by Jackie Collins but there are portions of it that are in there at all. I don’t know if it was edited for a time or they thought it was inappropriate etc. Extremely disappointed.

Dank and dreary, drags too

I'm glad it wasn't any longer; I couldn't have taken any more! Depression, depression, depression one horrible thing after another to the protagonists; I hated this book!! Okay and then the narration; there must be good authors out there who are good narrators but this isn't one of them. I would prefer to give this no stars but that's not a choice. You might like it who knows? If you don't it's only a couple of hours wasted, but that was still too many for me!

Glorifies Rape Culture within first paragraph

I just can't. I just can't listen to a book that starts out glorifying rape culture the way it does. If you want to know everything that's wrong with the previous generation and how they view each other's bodies listen to the first paragraph of this book. It's a tragedy and it needs to end with our generation.

Uabridge

I’d love to hear the unabridged versions of both books. Lucky and Chances. Both are favorites.
