Book Review: Addicted: A sexy, riotous summer bonkbuster by Nigel May

“Fame, fortune and five-star luxury. Meet four fabulous women – all of them hold a dark secret… one of them won’t live to tell the tale.

Nancy Arlow – the fading entertainer determined to gamble and charm her way out of a mountain of debt.

Laura Everett– behind the façade of the perfect politician’s wife lies a woman with an outrageous past and a spiraling drug habit.

Portia Safari– the world famous opera diva, adored by millions, has it all, but could her secret drinking problem cost her everything?

Martha Éclair– The millionaire wine heiress whose appetite for kinky sex could bring down her father’s business empire.

Each woman must face their own addiction before they pay the ultimate price…

Switch off your phone, grab a glass of bubbly and escape into an outrageous word of thrills, glamour and passion. You’ll be addicted… “
Addicted is the title of this glamorous Bonk-Buster, and I have to admit, I found myself addicted to reading about the lives of these four outwardly fabulous women.

Although the book was an exciting and racy read I didn’t particularly care for the main characters. The four women, with the exception perhaps of Martha, were quite obnoxious. Nancy, the has-been singer, is all bitter and twisted; Portia, the Diva, is self-obsessed and lonely Lauren seems pretty brainless and weak. Martha comes out as the strongest character, with, despite her particular addiction, more morals than any of them put together.

The male characters didn’t endear themselves to me either. Saul, the politician, is weak and easily led; Dale is a narcissistic opportunist and Lewin is a grumpy old man!

Having said all that, perhaps these are character we love to hate. Rich, handsome, entitled… with fabulous locations and all sorts of mischief. It’s a fun read!
