So I have never read a Jackie Collins book before as I am more of a Chick-Lit kind of a gal however when I fancied reading something a bit racier, without going into 50 Shades of Grey territory I thought a Jackie Collins books would tick all the boxes.
After reading several book reviews and umming and ahhing over which book to go for I went for a fairly recent release ‘Poor Little Bitch Girl’.
What I really enjoyed about this book is that each chapter is based around a different character so you get to know them all individually as their stories intertwine. You have Annabelle Maestro, the daughter of two movie stars who lives in New York and runs her own escorting business with her drug addict boyfriend Frankie. Annabelle’s life is thrown upside down when her mother is murdered. The one person she can turn to for help in her time of need is her best friends Carolyn, however she has her own problems as she is having an affair with a married Senator. Enter Denver, Denver used to be close friends with Annabelle at high school but they drifted apart and now she is a top attorney. When she is drawn in to help with the murder case she enters into a world she hated as a youngster but could things be looking up for her?
Throughout the book you have affairs, murders, money and a little bit of celebrity just for good measure. As I said I was looking for something a bit racier and this book had me gripped! At some points I just didn’t want to put it down to find out what was going to happen next.
This is a fabulous read and it definitely won’t be the last I read from Jackie Collins. It’s the kind of book I think you would enjoy if you like TV programmes like ‘Gossip Girl’, in that it can be quite dark but with glamour thrown in as well.
Have you read anything from Jackie Collins?
