Sasha Miller comes to Cambridge with a dream and leaves on a mission  . I love Tilly Bagshawe's novels and Scandalous is no exception. What happens when Sasha - a shy but promising undergraduate - falls for her handsome, sophisticated, married and ultimately self-serving professor? Well, they don't ride off into the sunset, that's for sure. In typical Bagshawe style, however, the female characters rarely let the men in their lives keep the upper hand for too long.

Sasha Miller arrives at Cambridge University with a single goal: to earn a place among the great scientists of her time. But that dream comes crashing down when the naïve student is seduced by her womanizing professor, Theo Dexter. She trusted him with her heart—and with the brilliant original theory that would jump-start her career. Now Theo is claiming her work as his own, and a devastated Sasha vows revenge.

Eight years later, the newly rich and famous Theo Dexter is the darling of the American media and every woman’s fantasy. Every woman except one. Now head of a successful business empire, Sasha has spent years laying the groundwork for the payback Theo so richly deserves. But if she’s going to do this thing right, she can’t do it alone. She’ll need the help of the only other woman who knows the ugly truth hidden behind Theo’s handsome façade: his spurned ex-wife Theresa. Together, the pair will concoct a plan for revenge so spectacular it will make every man think twice.

How did I not know about Tilly Bagshawe? One of my most favorite authors is Sydney Sheldon - I have searched and searched for books that were similiar to Mr. Sheldon, and not once has Tilly Bagshawe ever come up in my search, until recently. I have found no one that can tell a story like Sydney Sheldon, until Tilly Bagshawe. Scandalous is my first Tilly Bagshawe book and I must say her writing is very similar to Sydney Sheldon, she tells a great story and held my attention to the end of the book. I have already ordered another Tilly Bagshawe book and I can't wait to read it. Thank you Tilly for your fantastic skill of writing a good story, with good character development and having the ability to keep my attention all the way through the book!
Good news for those who miss Sidney Sheldon and Olivia Goldsmith and their entertaining head-hopping sweeping tomes! Here's the new drug for you.

This book is a great example of what it is: a LONG and convoluted and multi-viewpoint soap opera-ish intrigue similar to the ones Sidney Sheldon (did you know he also created "I Dream of Jeannie," to compete with "Bewitched"?) and Olivia Goldsmith ("First Wives Club" and other entertaining bricks--but that had to be a pseudonym, don't you think--playing on Oliver Goldsmith, Restoration author of "The Vicar of Wakefield" and "She Stoops to Conquer"?) If you love this sort of book, you will adore this one.

There weren't a bunch of typos, howlers, or errors, which thrilled me after all the poorly copyedited Kindle books I've seen recently. The Briticisms and British voice were lots of fun. (You won't need a dictionary, though.) The intrigue and the pace never fail, although I admit I did skim a bit when the backstory got knee-deep. I got to vicariously experience moral outrage and sneaky screwings-over and all sorts of "court drama" (as I call the private intrigues of an in-group). Lots of telling, but then you can't dramatize (show) EVERY little incident, and if you'll look at Stephen King and John Updike, you'll see that they do the same sort of infodumps whenever they introduce a character. No, really, go look. ("Jane yawned and turned over in bed. She would be late for her shift at Walgreens. Since her lover had deserted her, she'd gained six pounds and gotten a wart on the end of her nose. It had all gone wrong since she was a Rhodes scholar. . . .")

That said, the previous reviewers who carped on various things are absolutely CORRECT. Yes, yes, everyone in the book is WAY into sex. The answer to EVERY dilemma is humpy, humpy, humpy. And I winced when the author kept showing characters in fistfights or catfights or yelling matches (great anger, we get it) who suddenly started kissing and making out and Going At It. Violence is truly NOT an aphrodisiac for the sane. However, most of the neurotic and sociopathic characters here seemed to love being slapped and then quickie-d. If that's going to upset or offend you, then don't read this one. If you get off on lots of explicit sex, download/order it NOW so you'll have it in time for the weekend.

The reviewer who said that everyone in the story is a sex addict and that the heroine (supposedly SO SMART that she can come up with a Theory of Everything that turns science on its ear and rocks the world of physics) is actually a dimwit who loves men who use women and treat them like sex objects: absolutely spot-on. That was kind of a silly aspect of the novel, but of course I read on just to see the trainwreck. Couldn't look away.

Even MORE pertinent were the comments of the reviewer who said the author was uninformed about important issues such as the way that a scientific theory is generally presented and vetted (it would be peer-reviewed and posted to a physics website or published in a refereed journal to be scrutinized) and the low likelihood that a person who leaves the field (either to do high-finance real estate wheeling and dealing or to be a TV celebrity) could go back to doing serious academic work in physics--or would want to. You'd lose your skills (and your math brain is best when you're younger, anyway) and you'd be useless for teaching and whatnot until you went back to learn what you had missed in those intervening fifteen years. And you wouldn't want to leave the money and glamour behind. Trust me on that one. So these premises do FAIL, big-time. However, if this is not going to bother you and you can just play like it's all realistic, it won't be a big problem as you read. Things happen fast (like in a movie), so you don't have time to analyze them unless you're a drudge/nerd like me.

My biggest laugh, though, was the theory itself. Oh, it's glossed over so as not to confuse readers (don't worry your pretty little heads about it, it's a Sheldon Cooper sort of deal), but it's absurd that when the theory is supposedly published and making a splash, it then kind of just evaporates. When someone comes up with a new and exciting theory, there is lots of peer review and stuff like experimenting in the lab and other scientists trying to replicate experimental results. Well, this guy just dropped it and never did anything WITH it. What if it really WAS a unified field theory? No one ever mentioned it again or showed how it had made possible antigravity hovercars (frex) or whatever. If there'd been something like that for real, it would have made lots of news like the Higgs boson deal. (It gives everything mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic. Bazinga!) It would have become a new topic that every scientist would work on. And the original person would never leave it to do something else. So you kind of have to ignore that and not think too deeply about it.

That's the key here. If you want a fast, fun read with a lot of emotion instead of thinking, and revenge plotting instead of serious stuff, and lots of humpy-hump, this is the book for you. If you are going to overthink stuff, you'll just get mad, so don't read it. Buy it for one of your airheaded friends instead as a beach read. (LOL)

All this said, the writing was pretty good. The narrative pulled me along through all the implausibility and shallowness (of the characters) and so forth. You'll probably breeze through it, though you won't keep it to re-read, most likely--it's a do-once, unlike meatier novels.

If instead you want a story that is an amusing romp but has lots of deep philosophical questions (and a protagonist who doesn't do dumb stuff while claiming to be so, so, SO good and smart at everything), read LITTLE RITUALS by Denise Weeks (if you like a chick lit voice and an exploration of luck) or CAT'S CRADLE by Kurt Vonnegut (if you are into SF and whimsy.) Otherwise, you could at least try a sample of this one. You might like it!

Recommended, with the above caveats and reservations.
I'm not going to bore anyone with character names, plots or any other nonsense because you can simply read the info for that. This is just a rundown of what I did or did not like, dislike, whatever..

I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting but I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. It has layers and textures that blend well and a story line that is actually, sadly, believable.
I say sadly because there is a lot of back stabbing & revenge; not to mention love & betrayal. But just because there is a definite - or many definite - lines crossed, it's not campy or redundant.
There are characters I loved & others I loved to hate; strangely, they sometimes flipped back & forth. Often I found myself rooting for the wrong team then cheering when they got knocked down.
One thing that I especially enjoyed was the intelligence of the characters. This wasn't the usual love, sex, heart break book. Each person had something to offer - even the sexpot actress was smarter than I would have imagined.
Overall, did I like it? Yes. Would I read it again? I've read it twice & will probably reach for it again when my budget doesn't allow for a kindle spree.
*****Spoiler Alert***** This book started kind of slow. It didn't pick up until 3 or 4 chapters in, but when the story got going, it was entertaining. Theo was a dirt-bag and I couldn't wait for Sasha to get her revenge. I liked Sasha and how she was this strong woman that knew what she wanted. I liked Jackson, because he was this spoiled brat that didn't really care what people thought. Here are a few things that I didn't like. I didn't like how Theresa was portrayed as this educated dumb woman that couldn't see through her husbands crap, but I guess love is blind. I didn't really like the Lottie storyline. Lottie was a good addition, but I didn't see the point of going that far with Jackson. Maybe Jackson needed Lottie to see that he was in love with Sasha. I didn't like how the book ended with Jackson and Sasha just getting together. I would have liked to see them interact as a couple. This book could have used an epilogue. Overall, this book was a good read.
Another inexpensive winner. If you go by the cover, you'll probably think "I don't want to read this" but give it a try. Poor but very smart student falls for a very untrustworthy professor during her first semester at university. While still in the glow of after love, she tells/shows him a very sophisticated scientifc theory she's developed. The professor steals her theory claiming it's his and goes on to become a world wide success and very rich while our poor love sick student is expelled from school, shamed and heart broken. But she gets the last laugh as the years go on and she becomes a very successful business woman in her own right and her secret plan to take the professor down no matter what. You won't be dissappointed!
This is my least favorite TB book. So much so, I skipped to the end about halfway through. I'm not a physics fan, so that part was kind of boring.

And Theo is such a sleaze! It says a lot about TV's writing that I could imagine this character and I just wanted to reach into the book and belt him!
