Addicted by Nigel May
Thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley, I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review........
Four women….one death, one killer….Getting clean is a dirty business
Meet Martha Eclair the wine heiress with a sex addiction that could destroy her father's wine business empire, Nancy Arlow the faded entertainer who also has a major gambling addiction, Portia Safari the operatic diva who is adored by millions but has a drinking problem that could cost her everything and Lauren Everett the politician's wife, who pretty much has no life since she married her politician husband and she is about to rediscover life she left behind and discover a coke addiction - four women who can’t say no….....
All of these women should be happy with what life has given them. Success, beauty, money and fame. But never judge a book by it's cover, because on the outside they may all seem to be completely in control of their lives, but under their fashionable appearance, deep within their souls, they are all battling their own demons…......they are all addicted. Addicted to things that could ruin their very existence. In fact, one will snuff it out for good but who will it be?
I didn't like this book, I LOVED it, the book is divided into two parts and couldn't wait to get through to the end of it to see what way it would progress and pan out. The characters were well written and with great depth too. There was lots of glitz and glamour throughout this book with some of the characters which I loved, I could imagine myself there at times during the book in Las Vegas. I would state that due to mature content, I would recommend this for readers aged 18+. There are alot of scenes of sex and this might not be to everyone's cup of tea but I thought that it was tastefully written.
As I've never read any books by the likes of Jackie Collins or Victoria Fox, I can't really compare or judge the book based on that, I'll probably cause a bit of a stir by saying this but I can tell you that in my opinion I think Nigel May can certainly write better than E.L. James. I'm looking forward to reading more from Nigel too. So, if you are looking for an escapist read; grab this book, a glass or two of wine and some chocolate. Switch off, relax and enjoy!
Addicted is available on Kindle and in all good bookstores and is currently £1.99 at the time of publication of this review.
