    Beth, Lara, and Rio are all women out to get revenge for Margaret’s murder. A murder committed by the renown Bassalino crime family. Their revenge is by sex, therefore destroying each of the sons of this infamous family.I did not think this book was quite a Jackie Collin’s style as others I have read, and she is one of my favorite authors. There is sex, although not quite as much as usual or quite as hot, murder, and crime in the story as Collins is known for. Do not get me wrong , I liked the novel, I could not put it down.As each of the Bassalino heirs met up with the woman assigned to cause their destruction, I wondered where the sex would lead and how it would cause their demise. I have to say that the story between Beth and Frank was my favorite. Beth’s innocence was amazing, and how she overcame that innocence to do her job kept me riveted Rio’s outrageous behavior, which I believe is her normal behavior, mad me laugh, shudder, and shake my head. She definitely showed Angelo a different life then he was use to. Lara and Nick (sigh), oh my, who could dream you would fall in love with part of the family that caused the murder of your sister.Love Killers is an easy book to read and very entertaining. I enjoy it very much and recommend it to all my fellow Jackie Collins fans.

    Beth, Lara and Rio - three beautiful women with vengeance in their hearts. After the shooting death of their hero & sister & friend, Margaret, each woman is determined to bring down Enzio, the man that ordered the shooting. How do they ruin such a high powered man? They set their sights on his three sons. Okay, don't want to give too much away, so let's move on. This was just as fabulous the second time around - I love this book - it's so fast paced. The relationship between Lara and Nick I enjoyed, but I found the downfall of Frank to be the most intriguing. Not that I was sad to see him go, not in the least. He deserved it after what he did to his pregnant wife & unborn baby. The ending was still as sad as I remember. I liked Rio, but that's the irony. I'd definitely recommend this to my fellow Jackie Collins fans, or anyone who likes a hot read.

    For some reason this was not a book I remember ever seeing and I have only read it because it was lent to me. Sometimes a girl just has to have a Jackie Collins, others try to steal her crown but she remains steadfast and true.This has been a departure from books of hers I have read in the past but I enjoyed it nevertheless even though I did find it a little far-fetched in places. That does not detract at all from her writing and quality of her storytelling which I've always loved.This seemed shorter than the books of hers I have read before,with shorter more punchy chapters, nevertheless if you want a decent read which won't take you long I recommend it.

    Not bad for a 'light' reading session. Collins did not disappoint, but the ending's rather incomplete..too many questions unanswered, too many issues unresolved...unless a sequel is in order...

    My ratings: 3.5/5Atunci când lupți pentru o cauză nobilă și dai tot ce e mai bun din tine, fără nici o urmă de egoism, nu mai ții cont de răul care bate la ușă, ca și urmare a dedicării tale active pentru ceva benefic societății în care trăiești. Margaret Brown începe promițător în susținerea drepturilor femeilor care, din cauza unor împrejurimi nefericite, ajung să se prostitueze pentru a-și duce traiul în această lume nedreaptă. Astfel că, atrăgând un număr impresionant de adepte în această luptă aprigă, spre enervarea mafioților italieni, își găsește sfârșitul chiar în mijlocul mulțimii feminine ce asista plină de speranță la motivațiile acestei femei puternice, care nu cunoștea frica și ideea de a renunța, atunci când își propunea ceva în minte.Prietenele și surorile sale, devastate după o asemenea veste, își pun în cap să se răzbune pe Enzio Bassalino, iar cel mai bun mod prin care pot să facă asta, este prin intermediul celor trei fii ai săi. Erau în stare de orice pentru ca moartea lui Margaret să nu fi fost una în zadar. Sperau ca planul să reușească și totul să revină cât de cât la normal. Pentru șeful mafiot, băieții reprezentau mândria sa și tot ce fusese el în tinerețe. Singurul care părea că o să-i ia pe urme tatălui în toate era Frank, cel mai mare dintre frați. Nick și Angelo, mezinul, nu împărtășeau această moștenire de gene, preferând să stea departe de pericol. La un moment dat, chiar mărturisesc amândoi că și-ar fi dorit să fie orfani, dar nu ar fi recunoscut niciodată în fața tatălui acest lucru. Angelo și-amintește că, în adolescență, și-a exprimat dorința de a alege calea artistică, însă Enzio îl bătuse de-i sunase apa în cap și-l închisese în camera sa, pentru așa-zisele prostii care-i treceau prin minte. Nu că acum s-ar fi schimbat, era la fel de pierde-vară. Încă avea timp să se maturizeze, spunea mereu Enzio.Planul fetelor ia amploare și fiecare își alege victima, în funcție de fratele cui i s-ar potrivi mai bine. Lara pune ochii pe Nick, amândoi având în comun o frumusețe naturală, care nu trece cu vederea nimănui. "Logodit" pe moment cu o stea de cinema care, cu ceva ani în plus, ar putea să-i fie chiar mamă, Nick are impresia că și-a găsit femeia vieții lui. Asta până când Lara apare în viața sa și atracția puternică ce o simt unul pentru celălalt îi acaparează zdravăn pe amândoi.Rio se ocupă de Angelo, ajungând să-l joace pe degete cum știe mai bine, iar el, în loc să stea cât mai departe de ea, rămâne fermecat de tipă, ceea ce, pentru el, chiar este o noutate. Obișnuit ca femeile să-i cadă în plasă și să se țină scai de el, Rio îl incită ca nimeni alta și e decis să-i arate de ce este în stare masculul din el.Lui Beth, cea mai tânără dintre fete, îi este încredințat Frank, acesta având o pasiune pentru tinerele inocente, cu un aer de virgină, așa cum era și soția sa atunci când s-au căsătorit. Deși, la prima vedere, tânăra nu părea că avea să reușească să-și joace rolul până la final, pentru Margaret era în stare să facă tot ce-i stătea în putință. Îl prinde în mrejele sale pe mafiot și aranjează lucrurile, astfel încât soția însărcinată a acestuia să îi prindă în flagrant.Însă, deși situația pare a fi în favoarea fetelor, consecințele nu întârzie să apară și unele dintre ele se trezesc că toată chestia asta cu răzbunarea a fost o prostie. Nu le-o va aduce pe Margaret înapoi și nici nu simt că au făcut ce trebuia. Sora lor mai mare nu ar fi fost niciodată de acord cu așa ceva. Iar lucrurile se precipită și mai tare atunci când iubitul lui Margaret dorește să se răzbune într-un alt fel, mult mai rău decât planul fetelor. Folosește aceleași arme ca și cei care i-au ucis femeia. Și se lasă cu explozii, atât pasionale, cât și de-a dreptul mortale, înlăturând pe oricine și orice i-ar sta în cale. Cine va câștiga acest joc al puterii, un joc țesut de intrigi, manipulări în masă, control absolut și pericol la tot pasul? Odată ce ai te-ai aruncat în el, nu mai e cale de întoarcere.Recenzia aici: https://bookysme.wordpress.com/2017/0...

    This Review contains spoilersMy general thoughts:While it’s still fresh in my mind, let me just get it out.THIS BOOK IS A BEAUTIFUL TRAINWRECK.Jackie Collins is a good writer. A good simple writer.Reading everything, I never felt that she overwhelmed me with any information or even that I was lacking anything. And that’s sort of beautiful. She is a good writer but I did not feel emotion where I should have, I think.Places are described but I have no idea how. Still, I can just picture them even now, thinking about them so she must be some sort of magician writer.So what do I mean by a beautiful trainwreck?Just that.There is so much going on. So many unexpected things. So many coincidences. So many things! Really at some point it was just ALL THE THINGS.The plot:The book starts with a literal bang and I’ll be damned if that wasn’t a powerful start. I LOVED IT.Loved. It.Margaret Brown is a woman who is stepping on some toes. She is trying to save the prostitutes in the city and is slowly having them leave the brothels, the corners and their pimps.Of course the mafia-type gangs get mad that this was happening. When she started it, no one really paid her any mind but then they realized she’s actually doing it right. Giving them alternatives, money where they need it, the strength to change and be better, help with getting over abuse and drugs. Margaret is like some sort of hippie prostitute messiah.And she gets shot on like, page 3? It was a powerful start (not a spoiler, getting revenge is what the book is about).There is a meeting of VENGEANCE *cue lightning and thunder* where the sisters (Beth and Lara), Margaret’s friend, Rio, her manager (and friend), Cass and her lover, whatshisname (Dicky? Dukey? Must be Dukey) team up and decide to get revenge on the man who killed Margaret. They discover a hit was put on her and so, go for the man who ordered the hit, Enzio Bassalino, deciding to get their revenge through his sons cause “death isn’t good enough for him”. Dukey just wants the Basalinos all dead but the girls have it in their heads that they can get this vengeance using their vaginas because surely, there must be a reason vagina and vengeance share like four whole letters.Yes. This is a good plan.Anyway, so it begins. No one knows that Beth, Margaret and Lara are sisters. Lara is a British hottie who has very high dating standards (I kid you not). As quoted: “She had been through most of the available princes and counts, a few movie stars, and a lord or two.”This girl must be beautiful as all hell but where does she find princes just lying around waiting for her to tick them off her to-do list? Do they stand in line? Is there an app? Do they get notifications when it’s just their turn?Their plan of vengeance was stupid. I’m talking really stupid. You will break these men with sex? With sex and mind games? When the only one of you three with any sort of experience in manipulation is Rio? Pathetic. The girls were idiots.That they honestly believed this was a solid plan and no one but Dukey called them out on it made me raise my eyebrows a bit. Sex and then what? If you’re not giving these men so much of the Clap that it becomes the Applause then I have no idea what your plan is. If sex with you is not going to absolutely break his penis so he can never father children and those children he did father, are not somehow pulled into the black hole that is your vagina and unbirthed, then I don’t see how sex with you is some sort of getter-done plan.If sex with you will not completely destroy the man as a human being and render him incapable of even waking up in the morning and peeing, then maybe, just maybe, you should find better ways of revenge.Like good old murder.When did we, as a people, become too good for murder as a form of revenge?I’m just saying.The characters:Leroy! I loved the hitman. He seemed fun. Like a guy I’d be drooling over right before he breaks my heart. And assassinates someone. Really, he didn’t deserve what happened to him.I loved Lara until I didn’t. Lara was a beauty but that was it. She wasn’t manipulative or smart and she fell in love OUT OF NOWHERE! Like… what? Were some pages just cut off because I did not buy that for a moment… it made me roll my eyes so hard that they hurt and I think I was blind for a few minutes.I liked Beth until I didn’t. Beth was a sweet innocent kid who’d been through some trauma. I understood her a little. She was a good person, kind even. I should have liked her more but Leroy stole all the love I had for the characters in this book.Rio was too much for me but her confidence in herself was everything I dream I could be… without the overspill of arrogance and uncalled-for bitchery. But, if you’re going to be a bitch and need some classes, there’s your girl.Nick was an asshole. Of the highest order. Enzio was trash but Nick was what happened when Enzo’s asshole thought to itself that he wasn’t a crappy enough person, detached itself from his bum and proceeded to somehow be born as a separate entity. I hated Nick. At first I respected him and his uppity loyalty to his old movie star girlfriend. That ended pretty quick after he decided a secret affair was not beneath him and I was done with him. It wasn’t even the secret affair I was mad at. I didn’t care about that. That was fine. It was how he was such a dick about it.Frank was a small-dicked menace and Beth ruined his life. I felt a little bad for him by the end. I mean… it was all his fault but still.The third brother who Rio toyed with was just… a lot. He was a lazy spoiled brat and Rio messing with him amused me quite a bit. She was the reason for his comeuppance so I guess she achieved her goal (kinda).Really, they all sort of achieved what they set out to do. Except for Lara who got possessed by Nick’s loins and fell in love with him OUT OF NOWHERE! (I repeat for emphasis).Seriously.One minute she’s trying to catch his eye and the next they have sex and BAM! SHE LOVES HIM!Everything was so over the top I’m starting to wonder if maybe that was the point.In conclusionTHE LOVE KILLERS is a good book.For all the flaws I found (and typos, surprisingly. I sometimes got the impression she loved it so much she published it as soon as she could. Hell, I certainly would have), I only put it down to do necessary things like eat and finish my thesis.Everyone is a jetsetter and rich and able to fly everywhere at a moment’s notice. Must be nice.The book does play on the women using sex thing. All the women (except Cass who was boring as hell), were some sort of crazy (you had to be to be on board with such a dumb plan). Prostitutes, low and high class, women who used sex to get what they wanted… everyone lost out (with one exception, I guess). Maybe there was a deep message in there. Maybe it was just highly entertaining.Either way, I did enjoy reading it and shall give it 3.5 stars (and round down so I don’t deceive the masses).

    Another Jackie Collins book that didn't disappoint. I don't think I have ever read one that did. This book was a very fast paced book that I got right into from the very first chapter making it a really quick read for me. I wanted to keep reading it until the finish. I was a little disappointed with the ending in the respect that a character, that was only mentioned a few times throughout the book by other characters, was introduced in the last chapter. Jackie Collins has a way with doing a recap on her characters in her books in the final chapters and by bringing this character in in the last chapter felt like a loose end to me. But then again maybe he had more to do with the whole book then the reader realizes. I can't say anymore as I don't want to spoil it for anyone!! Well worth the read!!

    Trei femei puternice ,spirituale si foare razbunatoare.Toate trei cu un singur tel si anume sa razbune moarte surorii lor Margaret. Crima este comandata de catre capul familiei Bassalino,si drept urmare cei trei fii ai acestuia trebuie sa plateasca pentru moartea ei. Trei povesti paralele. Una intre Frank ,barbatul insurat si Beth o tanare inocenta, a doua poveste intre Angelo mezinul iresponsabil si frumoasa Rio, si a treia poveste(cu un final fericit-in ciuda tuturo asteptarilor) intre Nick barbatul indragostit si frumoasa Lara. Ma asteptam la ceva cu totul si cu totul mai palpitant, credeam ca vor fi mai multe intrigi.Da de unde!!!!Barbatii astia parca erau niste cateluisi trasi in lesa ,si nici decum niste mari mafioti. Pacat pentru ca poveste are potential , si poate daca ar fi fost scrisa intr-o maniere nu asa de sucinta ,alta mi-ar fi fost parerea.

    I haven't read a Jackie Collins novel in a few years. It is always a joy to find her research on characters. This novel is about 2 sister that come together to figure out how their oldest sister was killed by the head of a crime family. The oldest sister help prostitutes get out of that life and gives them reasons to find a new life and feel better about themselves. The head mobster does not want this to happen. His sons, also share his life in different part of the father business. The sister develop a plan to destroy and pay back this crime family.A good read.

    This book doesn't "pack the same punch" as Jackie Collins' later novels. The story is somewhat slow-moving and predictable. However, there is still some intrigue and suspense involved to keep the reader interested. I'm much more impressed with Jackie's "Lucky" series and the books that followed afterwards.

    Was a good read and surprised by how it ended. Not sure if would read it again though. However, I was glad that out of all the brother's, Nick survived. I had the most hope for him to turn out as a decent guy but the rest were too annoying so I didn't care that they died. Sorry, is that too harsh? They were mean though!

    What a book! Jackie Collins at her best. This book had everything sex, drugs, and murder. l finshed this book in three days could not put it down, it was a real page turner. The characters all had a big impact in the book, big surprise who mudered Enzio, and how all the Bassalinos died, expect one, which l am did not. A very exciting read.

    Third book by Collins and I must say, she isn't that bad but I found this one tad boring as compared to the ones I have already read. This book had me at excerpt. Margaret an activist shot dead and her 2 sisters were out to avenge a murder. Excerpt was way too interesting.Three beautiful women set out to prove that when it comes to revenge, the female is far, far deadlier than the male.

    This book was a lot shorter than the ones I'm used to reading from Jackie and the story wasn't as interesting. I also found the ending was incomplete but maybe there was a sequel? All in all still a good read because you know with Jackie there is going to be some good stuff!

    3.5Este foi um bom livro, muito curtinho e ideal para relaxar.Quando peguei nele não estava mesmo nada à espera deste tipo de historia, tenho de admitir que foi excelente! As personagens foram super bem construídas, e tudo tinha uma ligação. Recomendo a quem quer uma leitura intrigante e pequena.

    In my quest to read only women authors in 2016, I'm reading books by old favorites. Some hold up quite well, but unfortunately this was not one. Poorly developed characters, silly plot and not even the steamy Collins I remember.

    Another action packed from Jackie Collins. Has sex in, but not as much as she usually does.
