The World is Full of Married Men by Jackie Collins

The World is Full of Married Men by Jackie Collins
1997, HarperTorch

Synopsis: Succulent starlets ready to make it, rich moguls hungry for hotter pleasures -- on the casting couch, at lavish parties, in plush hotel suites. A Hollywood tale about the burning ambitions, vicious power-plays, and sexual double-dealings of the entertainment world, where wives wait for husbands who never come home, and luscious models pay more than their duties...where talent and drive take you just so far, but sex can take you all the way.

The Good: Jackie Collins never fails to bring sexy, scandalous, and utterly addictive into every novel she writes. The World is Full of Married Men brings everything you would expect. Witty, engaging, ritzy and devious, this is the inside look into the lives of the Hollywood elite that we can't help wanting to know.

The Bad: The World Full of Married Men is one of Jackie Collins' earliest books and it does show. The writing isn't nearly as clear and well crafted as her subsequent books. The characters aren't fully fleshed out and the the sexy is toned down a lot from what we've come to know.
