Victoria Fox is easily my new favourite author. The fabulous cover of this book is what urged me to pick it up and what lies within its pages is just as tantalising. I’d be interested to know if any of the characters were based on real people…I have my suspicions hehe.
The story follows four couples, each powerful, each with their own vices and all trying to keep up appearances in the ...more

The story itself follows four couples, whose lives turn out to be more intertwined than one would first imagine. Yeah, I know, it’s been done in loads of chick lit books before this one, but it didn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it. Whilst some of th ...more
I really enjoyed being led through the story by Victoria Fox, a surprisingly skilled storyteller for a first time novelist. It's very, very tempting to go into the storyline, but ...more
This is a typical book for this genre. We have a lot of characters, we have trash, sex, drugs, many secrets and also glamour and views into celebrities lives. Like I said, we have many characters here, but it was not confusing and after few chapters I already knew who is who and who is t ...more
Not everyone lives happily ever after and in one case a marriage of convenience becomes repetitive since one party has a personal secret that becomes known only after the ink is dry on the "marriage license" so to speak.
A fast past novel.
It's been a long time since I read anything as good as those books, but this week, I have found someone that is up there with them.
This book is more modern than those books mentioned above with a bit more monogamy and less of the sleeping around, but the female characters are just as strong.
I did see Elizabeth's shock coming long before she did, though :)
I'm looking forward to reading mor ...more
However Elisabeth's story is way beyond screwy. Somehow I knew exactly what was going to happen there but it really didn't make reading it any easier.
Fairly standard bonkbuster, destined for the summer holiday market. Four interlinked plotlines culminating in predictable dramatic conclusion. Felt I had read it all before as similar to 80's novels by Jackie collins, Judith Krantz, Shirley Conran et al. Best suited to 20-somethings looking for a light read on the beach!
Great big, massive story, like Jackie Collins' books. I enjoyed every page, it's one of those wonderful guilty pleasure reads. In the last part of the book the pace gets pretty crazy and one thing after another happens. Leaves you breathless and turning pages faster and faster.
A very satisfying read!
Well I love a trashy get swept up in the action book... But I don't think this is the best one. It took me half way thru the book until I was really caught up in the action. I prefer her other one- temptation island as it offered more of a storyline. I didnt know where the story was going for most of this book.
I really love celebrity stories
The characters were beautifully written
Really (over 600 pages) long
Too many storylines
This book honestly could've been four different books in a series because while it was well written, it really was too long. Overall, good story though.
