Book Review: The Power Trip

It's been a while since I did a book review probably because I haven't read anything super riveting lately and also just because I have sort of forgotten but this book that I'm fixing to give you is unforgettable.

Like most great book finds mine usually start with finishing a book and needing another.  I always turn to Amazon to find books since I love and adore my Kindle.  I go about it different ways...I cruise the New York Bestseller list and other lists, then venture off on my own just browsing at times.  A couple weeks ago I happened upon The Power Trip and grabbed it right up.

Buy it for your Kindle or other versions from Amazon...HERE!

Synopsis from Amazon:
A luxurious yacht in the Sea of Cortez, a birthday cruise for one of the world’s most beautiful women and an invitation no one can refuse. The Power Trip—take it if you dare. From Hollywood icon and mega-seller Jackie Collins comes a thrilling new novel, The Power Trip, set on a state of the art luxury yacht off the coast of Cabo San Lucas. A tropical getaway with a cast of global power-hungry elites turns sour when they find out maybe they don't control as much of the world as they thought . . .

In The Power Trip you will meet Aleksandr Kasianenko, a billionaire Russian oligarch, as he sets sail on The Bianca. You’ll meet his sexy supermodel girlfriend, whom The Bianca is named after, and five dynamic, powerful, and famous couples invited on the yacht’s maiden voyage: Hammond Patterson, a driven Senator, and his lovely but unhappy wife, Sierra; Cliff Baxter, a charming, never-married movie star, and his ex-waitress girlfriend, Lori; Taye Sherwin, a famous black UK footballer and his interior designer wife, Ashley; Luca Perez, a male Latin singing sensation with his older decadent English boyfriend, Jeromy; and Flynn, a maverick journalist with his Asian renegade female friend, Xuan.

You will also meet Russian mobster, Sergei Zukov, a man with a grudge against Aleksandr. And Sergei’s Mexican beauty queen girlfriend, Ina, whose brother, Cruz, is a master pirate with orders to hold The Bianca and its illustrious rota of guests for ransom.

The Power Trip explorers the decadent playgrounds of the super-rich . . . and leaves you hungry for more.

I couldn't get enough of this book.  I was sucked into each couple's story and drama from the very beginning.  I had my favorites and hopes for what I wanted to happen for each couple.  I wanted to read and read but it's one of those books that you can't get enough reading but you almost don't want to read it because you know has to end.  I was so impressed with Jackie Collins story lines and style of writing I'm definitely going to get more of her books. 

If you haven't read this book then I HIGHLY recommend it.  The Power Trip is the perfect book to take to along on your upcoming summer vacays!  I loved it loved it loved it!!!!
