Apparently I jumped the gun on this thread! Sorry about that, guys. Has anyone else started reading this yet? What do we think?


message 3: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments yes i started it! i skipped thru much of the italics exposition stuff since it was still fresh in my mind. i’m interested in how all the new characters will play out! also can’t wait to see olympia and lucky again, and how they’ll be toward each other.

I feel like Lucky has grown past Olympia but I’m sure there will be some odd connection. I have to say, I feel like Olympia is a bit entitled and I hope Lucky bitchslaps her. Haha!


message 5: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments yes she def outgrew her even when they were in France. i have a feeling Lucky is gonna bail her out of a mess in this book.

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
Very likely. It’s also likely mob related.

Okay, this Susan Martino is a freaking bitch!


Emmie.Reads.Books | 95 comments I still haven't been able to track down a copy, but I can't wait to start it! Chances was 5/5 stars for me!

Its JUST as good so far.


message 12: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments it sure is! i hope all 10 books are like this haha

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
OMG! That fricken Susan!


message 14: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments There are way less sex scenes in this book, for anyone put off by that.


message 15: by Mel (new)

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
I’m kind of grateful for it. I feel like the gratuitous sex scenes in Chances were for illustration. These characters are maturing so there’s mentions of sex but not a play by play.


message 16: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments I actually chuckled at alot of the descriptive (non rapey) scenes in Chances. Lucky still has the same pace, without all those extra moments.


message 17: by Mel (new)

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
They were for sure amusing but they were a little distracting.

Hmm, I might possibly give it a go then. But I have too many other books I'd rather read at the moment so probably not going to read it now. Looks just as chunky as Chances.

It is as long but it’s a pretty fast read.


message 20: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments Yea I'm blasting through it. Mostly I'm curious to see these characters converge.

Hahahaha. As soon as she got to NY and got those messages. And Ill bet I know how Lucky & Olympia are linked again. So much for Lucky bailing out Olympia. BAHAHAHAHA

Omg. I cannot put this down! I’m addicted and I have to go to work for an hour today. Omgggg


message 25: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments yea it’s getting really good! i’m just about ready to start book 3.


message 26: by Mel (new)

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
I think we are the only two who like it. Haha!


Emmie.Reads.Books | 95 comments I still haven't gotten a chance to start it! lol Is it just as good as Chances was?


message 28: by Mel (new)

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
It’s better, I think.

Also, I think the Steven / Carrie storyline is kind of drab. I think I know what’s going to happen but it still feels blah. I just don’t care about either of them this book.


message 29: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments yea i think it’s better than chances too. way less traumatic stuff and weird sex scenes so you can focus on the real dramas. the steven/carrie stuff was annoying but i think now that carrie is doing her own things there will be some interesting stuff happening with their storyline.


message 30: by Mel (new)

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
I just feel like Carries stuff and has come and gone but given her most current project maybe not. Jackie Collins is really good at throwing a monkey wrench!

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
I’m gonna finish this today!


message 32: by Mel (new)

Mel (gingergonzoreads) | 652 comments Mod
Okay. I just finished. Sooooooooooo good.


message 33: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (52gatos) | 73 comments I finally finished. Wow. The ending was intense!


message 34: by Mel (new)
