In Hollywood the last words a woman should believe are spoken when she's between black satin sheets and in her lover's arms...
I normally don't do book reviews, but I had to weigh in on this one. Notice the HUGE 'do on the woman on the book cover? That's coz it's from the late 80's/early 90's. I don't think the description mentions this, but it was first published 20+ years ago. I remember this book with the same cover art very distinctly.

I read it while on vacation in Florida in my late teens during the aforementioned big-hair period. This was my introduction to Brenda Joyce. Years later when I saw that she was writing historicals, I was amused. As others mentioned, it is very Jackie-Collins-ish and over the top, but I think that's half the appeal. It seemed like a contemporary version of Skye O'Malley by Bertrice Small. Both are over the top and have characters who have...rather rambunctious love lives. Very rambunctious. You-won't-be-able-to-sit-down-for-a-week-type of rambunctious. All of the characters in this book, including very minor ones are like that. It's full of good ol' fashioned crazysauce. Enjoy!
Brenda Joyce's first non-historical novel takes us into the Jackie Collins world of Hollywood where a rich but independent heroine has the hots for a bad boy turned actor with a past. True to the form, the path to hooking up is one bumpy ride, but Joyce's account toward this destination is a juicy, glossy, sexually-charged roman à clef that lifts from its first page and stays above water. The author evidently has fun with her subjects. (SPOILER AHEAD) Their hot and cold attitude towards one another satisfyingly builds up to a grand sparks-fly union destined to become happily ever after. Joyce's world of caviar and champagne may not always be original but the passion and dedication with which she writes make for a fun and exciting experience.-----Martin Boucher
I have read several historical romance novels by Brenda Joyce and loved them. I didn't care for this contemporary book. I felt like all the characters were over-sexualized and the main character had more lust than love.
really good
