The Santangelos





Legendary mega-seller Jackie Collins chronicles passion and power in one of America's most glamorous families.

A vicious hit. A vengeful enemy. A drug addled Colombian club owner. A sex crazed Italian family. And the ever powerful Lucky Santangelo has to deal with them all, while Max-her teenage daughter is becoming The "It" girl in Europe's modeling world. And her Kennedyesque son, Bobby, is being set up for a murder he didn't commit. But Lucky can deal. Always strong and unpredictable with her husband, Lennie, by her side she lives up to the family motto-Never cross a Santangelo.
Lucky rules. The Santangelos always come out on top. An epic family saga filled with love, lust, revenge and passion.




My Review

I have read several books about the Santangelos family. Although the books read like a rich, soap, mob opera I could not stop reading the books. Call them an indulgence. So when the lastest Santangelos book came out I had to check it out. There was something missing in this book. I did not feel the love with this book as I did with the prior novels. While I still like the Santangelos, I was not invested in their lives or relationships.

Lucky even seemed to be docile in this book. Not as strong a female presence as she usually is. There was too much talking with not a lot happening. I was struggling to read this book. Even at half way there was not a lot happening. This book could have been shortened by like 100 pages and more action inserted into the plot.
