Billy Ikehorn: Meet again the magnificent owner of Scruples. Billy is imperious and stubborn, a creature of rampant sexuality, too rich, too vulnerable and far, far too impulsive. The story begins on the day after Scruples ended, the day on which Billy's husband, producer Vito Orsini, won the Oscar for Best Picture.

Spider Elliot, who reigns like a pasha at Scruples, is a m

This sequel is dull and blech in comparison to the original.
Kind of a rehash of the first book, but with differnt characters. same crap, different people.

save yourself the troubel and stick the the original Scruples.

Gift from a friend. I have obviously read Scruples I, as the characters were familiar, however, no clue when! I don't often give a book five stars, this is one.

Judith Krantz, a brilliant writer, takes the reader into the world of showbiz and the cut throat garment business. From New York to Hollywood to Paris, Billy Ikehorn Orsini travels. Rich beyond belief, she spends money like running water, but always her heart gets broken. From the lying cheating movie husband Orsini, to a artist, Billy ch

A weak and unnecessary follow up to a trashy 80s classic. Reading this I remembered why I've only read it once before (where I can practically recite the original).
Dec 25, 2014 Gwen rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition has been some 30 years since I read Scruples, my outlook on life has changed quite a bit, (she said with a big grin on her face). I did enjoy the characters and the fantasy plot as an escape of the reality of what is presently going on in our world. The "steamy" sex scenes were almost laughable and actually quite unnecessary. Ms. Krantz is no doubt aging at the same rate I am and the last printed page of the book says "To be continued". I wonder if there is a sequel if similar sex esc ...more

I loved Scruples, and I loved this sequel written 14 years later. It continues the life of Billy Ikehorn, a fabulously rich and famous woman, known for her exclusive store Scruples.

It gives us the same sexual tension, the wonderfully described view into the life of the rich and famous, and the same 'what will happen next' intrigue.

Judith Krantz's final words are: "To Be Continued" I surely hope she is true to these words.

After I started this and got about half way thru, I figured out I already read this about 20 years ago but I kept on reading because I couldn't remember how it ended. I guess it wasn't that memorable of a book...
Nov 12, 2012 Macjest rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
The first Scruples was an acceptable mix of smush and all out fantasy in the fashion world and the world of the very rich. This, however, was a cheap knock off. Beloved characters were killed off, marriages were split, and unrealistic characters were paired together. The whole charm of the first book was completely lost.

This was not a bad book, but it certainly lacked something. The only reason I finished it was because I read Lovers and i just wanted to know the other characters better. I loved Zach and Gigi and Sasha. But it was not my type of romantic books!

It's like a really romantic and dramatic soap opera, which pulls you directly into the story itself, making it seem like you are there with Billie, Gigi, Vito, Spyder, Cora, and all that are intertwined in this novel.

Not quite as enthralling as the first Scruples (what could be) but ended quite strong and still enjoyable.
Jan 20, 2008 Alena rated it liked it
What can I say? It's sex and shopping and 80's excess! Judith Krantz is my favorite guilty pleasure author (which says a lot, considering most of my reads are guilty pleasures.)

I am realllllly embarrased to have a book like this on my list, but god damn, I love it. Indulgent, bawdy, BAD, but oh-so-good. Still haven't read the original 'Scruples'.

Decisamente un passo indietro rispetto all'ottimo primo capitolo, anche se il coinvolgimento e la passione comunque non mancano.

nice read... my first book from this author.
down side: there too many characters introduced and we seem to loose some in the way.

This sequel dragged a bit more than the first book but I still enjoyed the characters.

Not as good as the first one, but still comparable on the fun meter!
