Goddess of Vengeance (Lucky Santangelo #8)
Jackie Collins’ fierce and wildly beautiful heroine Lucky Santangelo is back with a vengeance—in a novel full of power, passion, revenge, and the raging family dynamics of the Santangelo clan—and, as always, Lucky comes out on top.
Lucky runs a high profile casino and hotel complex, The Keys in Vegas.
Lennie, her movie star husband, is still writing and directing successf

But it's not even about Lucky except repetitive phrases of fantastic her life is, how perfect her family is, and how gorgeous she remains. This one is about her daughter, Max. And let's all be honest, Max is no Lucky--in any...more

"No," Lucky answered after a thoughtful pause,"I'm a woman who took chances every inch of the way. I had to fight for my independence. Believe me, It wasn't easy."
"Right," Venus said. "And that's exactly why you and I understand each other so well. We both know that being a strong, successful woman in this town ca...more

Goddess of Vengeance is as raunchy as I expected, plus so much more. I had forgotten how wild Jackie Collins novels can be, it had been a long time since I had read one. However, this was quite different as I got to listen to it instead. My first audiobook experience with Jackie Collins was quite surprising, as this was also my first time in actually hearing her voice. Although, I did find Jackie's voice to sound e...more
Goddess of Vengeance is the seventh book in the Lucky Santangelo series. Now before I carry on I want to say two things; the first that even though this novel is part of a series you do not need to have read the other novels in order to enjoy this one. And second, the list of novels in the series is listed at the bottom of this review in the order of newest to oldest. Now I have those two pieces of information out of the way, I was really excited when I heard th...more
This was the case with this one.
i didn't knew lucky santangelo's timeline, and I started reading it with not much expectations, it sounded ok.
Even though most of the time it's like you're reading through rose coloured glasses, - i mean, lucky's described as perfect in every single way in every single opportunity! - you get hooked by the plot.
some of the characters seemed quite... flat. but other than tht it was a pleasant reading.
In Goddess of Vengeance, we find Lucky and Lennie still married and crazy about each other. Lucky hasn’t slowed down and is still the successful business woman. She’s trying to find a balance between work and family as her daughter’s Max’s 18th birthday is fast approaching. Max has...more

The only thing that I was stomped about when it came to this book, was it didnt seem to fulfill's up it's Title. It's called Goddess Of Vengeance, but Lucky never does anything to show her vengeful side. The only thing she really does is...more
This book is part of a series, but it is very easy to pick up the story line if you read them out of order. So, if you are looking for a book that will let you escape for a while, this is a good choice! The cast of characters keeps the book...more
Lennie, her movie star husband, is still writing and directing successful independent movies, while Max, her stubborn and gorgeous teenage daughter is about to celebrate her 18th birthday, and her son, Bobby, owns a string of hot clubs. Lucky has everything. Family. Love. Life.
And everything is exactly what billionaire businessman Armand Jordan is determined to take from her one way or the other.

Anyone looking for classic Jackie should avoid this book as I'd say it's for diehard fans of JC and Lucky only. I enjoyed it mostly for Lucky who is such a fantastic character (though the Lucky/Lennie soul mates thing seems too good to be true most of the time). There was just too many characters I couldn't care less about though. And I like Max and Bobby but they can't compare or compete with Gino and Lucky as characters and as for Denver, YUK.
Has Jackie mentioned any...more
Its a story about family ties, love , power , affluence and determination. For all I know I am really mesmerized by Lucky the kind of woman she is and what she stands for and the other highlight were of course Bobby and Denver.
oh and it might have quite alot of sexual material so for those who can't stand it shouldn't read it.
I love all Jackie Collins books.................cant wait to read the next one..... :)
There have been many imitators, but only Jackie Collins can tell you what really goes on in the fastest lane of all. From Beverly Hills bedrooms to a raunchy prowl along the streets of Hollywood; from glittering rock parties and concerts to stretch limos and the mansions of power brokers-Jackie Collins chronicles the real truth from the inside looking out.
Jackie Collins has been called a "raunchy...more
