Absolute rubbish from start to finish but I couldn't put it down. The perfect poolside vacation book, and you can toss it in the bin with pride when you're done with it.

Recommends it for: romance novel lovers
well i finished it finally today.

I must say i loved it. I am so into these kind of books. I know i know... what can i say- im not ashamed :)

I recommend this book if you are into family drama, couple problems, Hollywood sex drama, and Russian prostitution. I must say i cant wait to read my next romance novel... Rogue? maybe...

I loved all the characters - Mandy, ANya, Cameron, Don... especially him- Ryan- poor guy- good guys dont end up loosing :)

There were a few things that bugged me quite a bit in this book... the stereotypes that were borderline prejudice.. the "out of work actor-type valet", the "unemployed model/actor waiter", the Hispanic trainer lines with "mucho bucks", "mucho hot" was pesky.
For a mindless reading/listening it was ok, the story itself was not bad, just the execution that lacked something more.

TYPICAL JACKIE COLLINS BOOK. EASY READ, TRASHY, LOTS OF SEX AND CHEATING. GREAT SUMMER READ, LOVED IT.
Lexxie (un)Conventional Bookviews
Married Lovers is in the same vein as other Collins novels, with intricate characters, lots of Hollywood intrigue and some quite enticing characters.

This and all my other reviews are originally posted on my blog (un)Conventional Bookviews

Jackie Collins books are a guilty pleasure. Sometimes you just need a trashy novel. Married Lovers is an easy read with lots of smut, romance, but also a pretty sad story when it comes to one of the characters. Definitely worth a read if you fancy a bit of chick lit.

I picked this because Jackie Collins stated one of the characters was based upon Craig Ferguson. How much fun would that be!

Perfect for a summer read - light, fast and mindless.

Trash at its best...enjoyed every minute of it. As always with Jackie Collins.

Married Lovers by Jackie Collins is, for the lack of better words, a typical Jackie-Collins read! For those who aren’t familiar with this author, a lion’s share of her publications is known for her straightforward portrayal of life in Hollywood inclusive of both its charisma and angst in its highest glory. Married Lovers encompasses multiple characters, and it would be erroneous to identify any one single individual as a protagonist considering their balanced influence in the narrative.

Het boek leest redelijk vlot en is luchtig geschreven, ondanks dat er ook wat serieuze onderwerpen aan bod komen. Het boek speelt zich deels af in de wereld van de tv- en filmindustrie. Ook bijkomende zaken zoals fitness en media-aandacht komen aan bod. Een ander onderwerp dat in het verhaal voorkomt is (seksueel) misbruik van vrouwen. Verder speelt de liefde, of juist de afwezigheid daarvan een rol. Aan het einde zitten er ook wat thrillerachtige elementen in het boek. Daardoor is het een zeer ...more

I hadn't read a Jackie book in a while before picking this one up, so it took a bit of time to get used to her writing style (and themes) again but once I was I was immersed.

The story was typical Jackie, if you've read any of her US based stories they are all sort of in the same universe. I enjoyed this book, the only thing I was disappointed in was the ending, it all ended too quickly for my liking and the epilogue was a bit short.

I love Jackie Collins, but this is by far the worst book by her that I've read. She relies way too much on already-used tropes and characterizations, and even the Hollywood stuff that is ordinarily so entertaining in her books is boring here. I couldn't even finish it.

Everything's common and predictable when it comes to Hollywood but at least with all the sex and politics, there is still room for betrayal. And boy, that was one big betrayal because that dog could still hunt and it ended up in an unfortunate murder.

Shelves: romance, gave-away
Definitely not what I expected. It was superficial and crass, read like a teenager's first novel not an experienced author's. It was fast paced but I didn't its pushy attempt to be modern, or the language and context.

Glamour en glitter in de filmindustrie van Hollywood, oppervlakkig, maar toch leest het als een trein.

Not a bad read, enjoyed it for sure but it’s nothing in comparison to the Santangelo series which I have read multiple times. This one though, one time read

Read a Jackie Collins novel after a long time. I had forgotten how good her books are and how much I enjoy them. Married lovers was no different. Lots of fancy characters displaying the hep Hollywood lifestyle amidst a gripping and fast paced story line.

Quick read. No surprises. Typical Jackie Collins story involving high powered Hollywood couples, love, lust, hookers and a murder thrown in for good measure.

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.
