Still the very best book I have ever read. The book that makes me feel like women can be powerful creatures. Read this a very long time ago but I still love this book.
Lady Boss, for me, was kind of a risky investment of time. Chances and Lucky make for good companions in that they comprise one long story arc. Lady Boss, while carrying over several characters, introduces a new story arc and a cast of, ah, interesting people. The Santangelo bunch naturally are more three-dimensional and familiar, and only a few of the Hollywood folks endear themselves to you.

What's interesting is how timely this story remains. Lucky vows to clean up a studio mired in sexism an
It didn't grab me like Chances and Lucky did. I was tired of hearing about the actors, and nothing seemed to be really happening as I grew tired of waiting for Lucky to come out her disguise (thanks Abe Panther for this ridiculous demand). I'm weary going into the fourth, but I have to finish the series since I started. Getting tired of Lucky and Lennie's "make up and break up" status. What happened to some of the characters in Lucky? Where's Costa, Jess, and Matt? Hell, even crazy Alice. I thin ...more

In Lady Boss, Book Three of Jackie Collins' Lucky Santangelo series, Lucky decides to buy the movie studio that her husband Lennie Golden is under contract with. Lennie hasn't been happy with Panther Studio for ages, and he can't wait to get out. Lucky decides to help him by buying the studio from Abe Panther, an aging businessman who is sick of hearing his family squabble about who gets the studio upon his death. Lucky convinces him to sell to her by promising that she will make Panther Studios ...more
While I still love Lucky and Lennie and some others...this book just lacked a lot of everything. Too many characters, not enough development of them??

Abe and his whole studio charade, I get why he did it but it was extreme. I am with Gino, Lucky really shouldn't have went after it without Lennie knowing about it.

This book was decent. It didn't light my fire but it was still a good read. I am on a quest to finish this series. These are my first Jackie Collins books. I am beginning to realize that I don't really love Hollywood trash books but they are, at the same time, kind of fun!!

Jackie Collins does it again… delivers an action packed, bold, unputdownable book. This novel mainly focuses on Lucky and her journey to take over Panther studio’s, where she goes undercover. She wants to suprise her actor husband Lennie. It also follows the lives of several other intriguing characters. Jackie’s characters are as strong as ever, and her plots unpredictable and timeless. You never know what you’re getting with Jackie’s novels – her characters have a way of suprising you. I’m a hu ...more

In LADY BOSS, Lucky has finally found the love of her life in comedian/actor Lennie Golden. Not only are the two different as night and day, but they are both as headstrong as ever causing them to sometimes bump heads, but the love that they have for each other surpasses all of that.

Who would've thought that Lucky would find love again after her beloved Marco? Three marriages later, and she has finally got it right this time around. So like any loving wife, Lucky tries to make her husband happy.

This is a great beach read. It is another book I just couldn't put down. This one is about Lucky Santangelo going undercover to find out the workings of Panther Studio's for 6 weeks before she acquires the movie studio. I still try to imagine just who she is writing about in real life. I don't believe I read this when it first came out, so it's been fun reading these Lucky Santangelo books all in a row now.

This book is not as engaging as the first of the "Lucky" series. However, it is still a pleasure to read and draws you in to the various scandals and situations going on in the lives of the rich and famous. I know that the "Gino" is much older in this novel; however, I really think he is an interesting "individual" and I would have liked to have more of his character developed in this novel. All and all, Jackie Collins is still an incredible writer. She is vividly honest and you can't put her bo ...more

Raunchy and wonderful!

Jackie Collins does it again. Fast paced and crammed with interesting characters. You won't want to put this one down. After reading this book about Hollywood stars and sundry other interesting people, I am so glad to be living an ordinary life as a housewife. If you like this author you will love this one.

Loved it!

Okay, so now I'm on the next book in the series, but this book was awesome. There are parts of this book that had me laughing so hard. Lucky is hands down my favorite female character in any book I've ever read. She's strong willed and is not about to let anyone take advantage of her. Awesome read

'lady boss' is one of my favourite Jackie Collins books. I love the behind the scenes look at the studio business. It also introduces my favourite character from the Lucky Santangelo world: Venus Maria.
Its a book that i keep and re-read every so often.

Enjoyed and loved everything about this book!

Lucky Santangelo is the type of women we all want to be like, she is rich, beautiful, gets what she wants, without letting anyone stand in her way..

Lady Boss is an exciting dramatic and some way romantic book, like all the other books in the Lucky Sanangelo series.
The characters in this books, are so entertaining, Jackie Collins, has a great way, making you fall in love with these people in a special way.

Good not great

I enjoyed books 1&2 immensely but this one wasn't great. There were lots of new characters and very little about the original characters. The disguise/undercover thing was a little silly.

Great book to take your mind off of your current world and immerse into Hollywood! Much like a book-version of National Enquirer and over 600 pages long, so there is a lot of it.

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers, it just did not grab me like previous books did. Non the less, I will continue reading
Jackie's books, as they are very entertaining.

I hadn't read any of Jackie's books before and decided I should since she just passed away. I wasn't that impressed, actually. Not sure if I'll bother reading anymore.

Not the best of the series, but still a pretty good story. The ending wasn't who I expected but it wasn't too shocking. I thought after all the hype of Martin and Venus Maria together, it was kind of a waste. I liked the epilogue a lot, except the emphasis of Lucky and Lennie's. Of course they get the "happily ever after" finish, but I know it's not without more trials and tribulations of the Santangelo/Golden family. It gives the reader more to look forward to in upcoming book(s).

for me, the beginning was a little slow. picked up at the end. I ended up only caring about what happened to lennie and lucky. 2.5 stars

Not bad and not so good! As compared to "The Power Trip" little disappointed. Ending 2 chapters are thriller.

Very compelling reading--hated to put it down!! Fun characters and plot..can't wait to pick up another book by Jackie Collins
Another good book in the Lucky Santangelo series
May 24, 2013 Agustina rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
I wasn't too thrilled at the beginning of this book. It was slower to develop than the previous two and there were too many characters. I had trouble remembering who was who and how they were connected. It was sad that as I approached the last few 20 pages of the book, they story was still developing slowly. However, in true Jackie Collins' style, the book ends with a bang and you're mind is blown.

I loved the ending, how everything came together and fell apart at the same time, but all the juici

“Once he had put the phone down Lennie felt restless. His wife was the most exciting woman in the world, but – damn it – she pissed him off. Why couldn’t she say – Lennie, if things are tough, I’ll be right there? Why couldn’t she forget everything else and be with him? Lucky Santangelo. Drop-dead gorgeous. Strong. Determined. Enormously rich. And too independent. Lucky Santangelo. His wife.” 0 likes
