Hollywood Sinners by Victoria Fox

Book Review:

If it were June, this title would hit the top of my “beach reads” list: not too challenging with characters that are outrageous, glamorous and a bit sex-crazed, with plenty of “out of the norm” events and activities to engage and entertain.  Newly released with bookouture publishing, Victoria Fox’s chick-lit ‘bonkfest’ has the fun feel of your next must-have escapist read.

Billed as the ‘next’ Jackie Collins, I found that similarity worked only in the amount of intermingled story lines and the setting, and the pure unadulterated fun in reading.  A hefty volume at 600 pages, the story reads reasonably quickly, the few moments that felt padded or overwrought were still entertaining and not distracting. 

Characters are outrageously over the top, with flaws and insecurities that serve to make them more human and relatable.  Although I don’t believe any of us will be walking a red carpet in the next moments, that glitz and glamour is the reason we watch the award shows, and are often glued to the gossip rags.  There are no Kim K’s here however, even the characters that aren’t at the front of the line for your next best friend, they all have solid reasons for the spotlight they are in: even if as only the husband or next conquest of the ‘star’.

What is most memorable however, is the sheer delight that comes through in the author’s writing. You can see where she smiles or chuckles with evil glee as her characters are put through several wringers, with everyone getting some sort of comeuppance as befitting their misdeeds.  Yes, Ms. Fox is a writer to watch, for pure unadulterated sexy fun that will transport, entertain and engage you for the hours it takes to finish.  Curl up in a cozy chair, crack open this book and disappear within the pages for a few hours.  You won’t be disappointed.

About Victoria Fox

By day I live in London. By night I relax in my fantasy LA mansion, sipping Krug in a Jacuzzi and watching a bare-chested man clean out my pool.

I was born in 1983, went to boarding school in my teens and studied English at university. While there, I wrote my first (unpublished) bonkbuster: The Hardest Part. It had lots of sex in it and not a great
deal else. Suffice to say that after a rambunctious beginning it was over disappointingly quickly.

Despite this, the genre never lost its sheen. I want to write books with swagger; rude, racy and irreverent reads that reignite the glory days
of Collins and Cooper. Plenty of sex, bags of scandal and a host of outrageous players who keep us up long after lights-out.

A long-time admirer of Jackie Collins, I often wondered what life would be like as an author. After working in publishing for a few years, I decided to quit and find out – and I haven’t looked back since!
