When Jack and I started to work on Guilty Pleasure, we talked to a lot of people who'd read and enjoyed Blind Item. We wanted the sequel to take advantage of people's affection for the characters in Blind Item, and really expand on that affection by plunging Nicola's entire world into a darker, more manipulative and unstable place, but still emphasizing love, friendship and integrity as the most important assets in that world.
We felt that we needed to try to capture the state of entertainment r

First and foremost, this book is a sequel (which is something that I did not realize until after I requested the book and it came in the mail). The first book in the series is Blind Item and I sadly did not have the time to get a copy and read it before it was time to read Guilty Pleasure.

I’m going to admit I didn’t read this. I ordered it by mistake on Amazon, and when I realized that I’d read and hated the first book in the series, I sent it back immediately.

Blind Item & Guilty Pleasure center on a fictional relationship of a big Hollywood Star and a Publici

So much fun! Sequel to last year's delicious Blind Item. Irresistible gossip, movie stars, and Hollywood shenanigans!
Ack. I’ve got to check my own past reviews. I tried to read this because I paid for it’s all chatter one dimensional dialogue and no depth.

Jackie Collins fans will enjoy this book. Very similar writing. Make sure that you read the first book in the series (Blind Item) before reading this book.

Not even close to the first book. Felt too whiny and basically annoying..what upsets me is the first book in this series had a lot of heart even if it could make you blush
