Synopsis: Secrets. Scandal. Betrayal.
In Paradise, pleasure comes at a dangerously high price…
Three couples each receive an exclusive invitation to the fantasy holiday destination of a lifetime… The host: Martin McKenzie, global billionaire and media mogul. Charismatic, powerful and always gets what he wants. The location: A breathtakingly beautiful undiscovered island, nestled in the Aegean Sea. Private, secluded and not quite as it seems. The details: Seven days of pure hedonism, five-star luxury tailored to every desire, also includes… secrets, lies, and infidelity.
As the guests begin to enjoy everything the luxury island has to offer, cracks begin to surface between the three couples. But that is not all. Someone is watching them. When they discover the truth – it will be explosive in more ways than they can ever imagine.
Let’s judge a book by it’s cover: To be honest, I was drawn to this book because of the cover. So it has that going for it. I think it’s pretty much a perfect cover for a fun little beach read – colourful, sexy, and features a setting that I think any of us would love to be whisked away to.
My thoughts: This is not the kind of book I reach for usually, so it was a bit of a mystery for me as to what it would be like. I actually ended up loving this book, I thought it was so much fun. There is a whole cast of colourful characters (most of whom I loved to hate), an amazing tropical setting (which had me wishing I was reading this poolside in Bali), and an intriguing storyline that hooked me in from the start. It was funny, dramatic, sexy, thrilling, and at times a little bit romantic.
Would be a good read for: Someone looking for a poolside read that they won’t want to put down long enough to go into the water. Also, the book contains some graphic sex scenes – so obviously people who are old enough to be reading about that sort of frisky business.
