I love Tilly Bagshawe's novels and Scandalous is no exception. What happens when Sasha - a shy but promising undergraduate - falls for her handsome, sophisticated, married and ultimately self-serving professor? Well, they don't ride off into the sunset, that's for sure. In typical Bagshawe style, however, the female characters rarely let the men in their lives keep the upper hand for too long. And, after all, Sasha is not the only wronged one in this scenario: there's also his kindhearted but do ...more

I was drawn to this book by the promise of a woman scorned and getting revenge on a man.

I am actually on the line between a two and three... The book is entertaining and I did manage to read the entire thing and I was dying to know what happened next, but it has left a bad taste in my mouth, so to speak.

I can say with all honesty, I don't like it.

Quick recap: young girl Sasha is naive and susceptible to a handsome professor's charms. He whoos her and steals her great scientific breakthrough, usi

Yes, just okay. From the opening I thought I wouldn't be able to go on the name-dropping was so embarrassing (I was embarrassed on the author's behalf it was so gratuitous PLUS I was embarrassed on my behalf because I recognized all those vapid status symbols, shallow me), but I persevered. Kinda wish I hadn't ... kinda glad I did.

I did like how intricate and detailed the story was, so many characters with so much going on, except they were all vacuous losers for whom I cared not a whit. The one

have to be honest I did not expect so much from this book but I was pleasantly surprised..
I liked the characters especially Sasha and Theresa and their backgrounds as well as the way they developed throughout the book. If you want a fast, fun read with a lot of emotions,revenge.. this is the book for you.
I finnaly finished this book. I didn't expect anything amazing, just an average book which should help me to escape from everyday life, for a short time. Like in most chick lits, lifes of rich people are the main focus.
Usually, I read chick lit just because of humor. This book does not have humorous scenes, but something just made me to be stubborn and read the whole book.
The plot is a typical soap opera, with naive females and male bastards as main characters. I didn't like Sasha, she's just to

I feel bad giving this book two stars when I read it with such gusto, but I felt that the story was a bit predictable and I thought that the ending was terrible terrible. I felt like the book was less about Sasha's (eventually revealed to be less than) intriguing plot for revenge and more about the sexploits of the villainous men. I also, at times, felt like I was reading a fashion catalog, as everyone was wearing name brand clothes, down to their undies. Other times, it felt like I was reading ...more

It was extremely predictable. And very clichéd. Horrible vulgar writing style and a bit over the top. Wronged, vulnerable heroine who turns hard as nails due to a corrupt older man abusing her trust blah blah

The hero is a clichéd tall dark handsome successful man, while the antagonist is a rich blond unscrupulous older man. The heroine's rival is a beautiful but undeserving female and so on... Most of her books sort of read this way. The “baddies” are manifested in the extreme. i.e. vain, concei

I don't usually read chick lit but I wanted to read something lighthearted and not have to engage much. Well I got what I wanted.
I must admit I did like most of the characters a d the plot was entertaining to say the least.
The ending I have no love for. Not realistic ( I KNOW it's not supposed to be but the author does know that women reading her books have lives and brains, right?)

I enjoyed this mainly because it does what it says on the cover. Revenge-Chick-lit. And I can definitely identify with the main character (Sasha Miller) more than I ought to I think. In comparision with Louise Bagshawe's books I like Tilly because they are a bit more modern and the characters are more nuanced i.e. no one is good or bad rather a more human combination of the two, which makes for more interesting reading. It's not got 5 stars because there are a few gaping plot holes:

I think that I picked up this book based on a review on SBTB, when I was looking for some interesting fiction that wasn't terribly involved or just fluff. This book fit the bill perfectly, and I ended up loving it and reading with every chance that I got. The book covers the life of Sasha Miller, who was seduced and then had her ideas stolen from her professor during her first year at college, as she goes through the heartbreak and anguish of loss and betrayal through the building of her new lif ...more

Oh…my…GOD! Where have I been? This book has been in my ever growing pile of booksto read for a little while and to be frank, would have stayed towards the bottom were it notfor somebody else's review. She too had read the book and her review certainly made me decide that the book needed to move up on that pile. I am so glad that I made the time to read this because it was a corker of a book.

While this book developed three interesting plot lines, the ending was disappointingly predictable and unrealistic. The ending really cheapened the entire book.

I actually loved this book! All the twining relationships, and the conclusions of such relationships were both surprising, fulfilling, and a joy to read. Definitely a re-read if I find myself in a mood to read something that makes me feel surprisingly uplifted knowing in life there are all kinds of situations and people that in the end they get what they deserve. Sometimes you just need one of those inspirational novels that doesn't hide the fact that bad things happen, sometimes good, and that ...more

It's easy to read, escapist stuff and I wasn't expecting high brow literature. The characters and plot were more developed than I had expected and for that I'd give the book a decent 3.5 stars. The synopsis for the book is exactly what it delivers and I found the central character Sasha interesting and appealing for about half of the book. Then the story started to drag a little and I started to find all the characters a bit of a turn off.

I lost my empathy with Sasha's character and started to f

This is the first Tilly Bagshawe work I read. I wasn’t expecting much from it. But I was hooked with the summary and decided to give it a try. Betrayal and revenge. Wow! These weren’t the usual combination I always read in my chick lit. I’m excited!

The beginning of the Scandalous by Tilly Bagshawe was a bit slow. It began with young Sasha Miller coming to Cambridge with her passion on physics. Later, she fell for her Director of Studies, Theo Dexter lies and become entangled with him. But Theo

When I know I have a heavy workload coming up, I tend to read ‘lighter’ books (in terms of content, not weight). The only thing is, I still want them to be interesting, not boring. This book certainly fits the bill – the plot and characters are easy to follow, but still interesting. I’d describe this as chick lit with a bit of meat/grunt to it.

The book centres on Sasha, who adores physics with a passion. Her aim is to get into Cambridge and continue learning, which she does. However, she becomes

Tilly Bagshawe is simply AMAZING!!!!! She gets you involved in her storyline as if you right there with all the characters. Tilly is a creative, imaginative, and gifted writer. I have never been disappointed with any of her books. I truly cannot put her books down. I am thankful that she still has some books I haven't read yet :)

Everybody likes a good revenge story, most especially when it includes the moneysexpower ingredient. Scandalous is no exception.

This book made my chic-lit list because it seemed to include an almost Waiting to Exhale dose of "go girl" background support. Enjoyable and forgettable--disappointed the author felt the need to consistently associate happiness with that of male companionship...

I listened to this book. This book was a bit tough to follow along with listening to it because there is so many moving parts (different characters) but I loved the story and probably would have enjoyed it more. I commute to work sometimes up to 2 hours one way and listen to books on tape to help with the boredom.

This was a book club pick for May 2014…
It is outside of what I would normally read… so keep that in mind when you read my review please.
I do not enjoy books that paint women as needing a man to be a complete person. I can understand wanting love and family and friendship. But pinning all of ones hopes and dreams in one person, and then that person does not live up to the dream you are ruined for life. How you react to such rejection/betrayal is what makes you the winner or the looser in that si

I love Tilly Bagshawe in fact I prefer her over her sister Louise nowadays.

I loved Sasha, she was a great character and you really felt for her. Theresa most of the way through the book I was yelling at her to get a backbone as she was so annoying at times. Sasha was definately the stronger of the two. Theo was total slime but whats a book like this without the sleasy d**k of a guy. The last part of the book kind of ruined it for me, I really liked Jackson but wanted him to just grow a pair and

I didn't notice that the book was ending until I was on the last page of it. It has a perfect combination of romance and suspense that the series of events will lead you grasping for more. I loved how everybody got their happy ending. :)

My friend got me this book after she'd read it herself and thought I'd like it too because she knows I like books (partially) set in eccentric small university towns. I did. The story is quite predictable at times, but I was really falling in love with some characters and feeling quite angry with others - at one point even wanting to smash the book against a wall because Theo and Ed (end of first part) were such massive asshats. The writing was pretty decent, though it did irritate me at some po ...more

Set in the world of uni first it was a wrong relationship between a student and Professor that started things, with the main character Sasha's studies getting stolen and this starting a years and years vendetta against the dodgy Professor.

Loved it!
Has a little bit if everything.. Drama, love, betrayal, suspense.

It ends exactly like how I wished it would when I was halfway through the book. Was difficult to put down!
great story

This was a great story and I never lost interest even though it seemed to take forever for Sasha to exact her revenge. I got a little impatient at times.

I'm finally finished! That's how I feel about this book. It's not that I didn't like it, it's just that it was so drawn out. Then, at the end I felt like o...k... all that for this.? But, the book was certainly entertaining and certainly Scandalous. Happy reading.

ps. Theo is one of the worst charactered characters I've ever read. He was a terrible person. Absolutely villainous.
