Book Rating: 10/10
Wickedly entertaining, outrageously sexy, and positively captivating!
This novel takes you into the lives of the, Velvet Hotels, Rivers’ family. They are rich. They are famous. And they have everything you would expect, designer clothes, fast cars, and private jets. But like most families with power, privilege, and money everything is not as it seems, and behind closed doors you find adultery, debauchery, lies, secrets, scandals, and murder.
It is extremely well written. The plot has an abundance of action, drama, and sex. And the characterization is bold and complex. There are characters you will love and characters you will love to hate.
To me, I couldn’t give any greater praise than to say it’s like a cross between a really good Jackie Collins and Jilly Cooper novel.
I am embarrassed to say this was the first Nigel May book I have ever read, but I think I may have just found my new guilty pleasure!
Thank you to NetGalley, especially Bookouture, for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
