I just finished reading this one over the last two weeks. I must admit that it has been awhile since I read one of her novels. To date, I've read all of Ms. Collins books except for the last few beginning with this one. Now, I'm catching up and I see that her writing style has changed. This one starts out very slowly and I found myself wondering exactly when the story was going to begin. Based on title and synopsis above, this book is not the story I expected. I expected a bit more action from the outset. For awhile there, for the first hundred pages or so I thought I was reading a novel by Danielle Steel. The characters are well drawn out, though they have some very silly, ridiculous and unbelievable sir names, as if she was grasping for straws. Once the story finally gets going around page 135 or so, it becomes the usual page turner. As with all her books, this one is entertaining and pure escapism, though after the first twenty five pages or so I knew where the story was leading to and guessed the ending accurately. As for the ending, it was weak and a cop out and disappointing. She does know how to weave a story though; her writing is strictly street talk.

Overall, for me it wasn't one of her best stories, though it was still entertaining and if you're a fan of her work, there is no reason why you shouldn't like this one. Question: why was the book entitled Married Lovers? It had nothing to do with Married Lovers. I was also waiting to see "what happens when lust and desire collide with marriage and power--and the results lead to murder." Didn't see any of this.

Though she throws in a few cameos of characters from previous books, Jackie Collins pulls us into a new sphere with new characters in this novel. Cameron Paradise is a personal trainer with dreams. After escaping her abusive husband in Hawaii, Cameron is working at an exclusive club in LA with an ever-increasing stable of satisfied clients. The newest is talk show sensation Don Verona, a handsome Lothario who immediately becomes intrigued with Cameron when she deflects his advances. Don's best friends are successful screenwriter Phil Specter, a philanderer with a retired movie star wife who wants to restart her career, and Ryan Lambert, an unhappily married indie movie producer whose wife is the daughter of megabucks blockbuster producer Hamilton Heckerling. Ryan started his marriage enthusiastically enough, but over the past few years, Mandy has become more and more unbearable with her Hollywood snobbery and refusal to accept his family. Ryan starts thinking about divorce, but every time he tries to bring it up, circumstances put a stop to his plans.

Cameron is enjoying her early morning sessions with the charming Don Verona, and even though she keeps turning him down, she finds herself intrigued. That she and Ryan Lambert fall instantly in love when they meet complicates things, but since Ryan is married and off limits anyway, Cameron allows herself to be charmed by Don while she and her friend Cole quit their jobs to start their own fitness center. Cameron is so distracted by her unexpected and unwanted feelings for Ryan, it slips her mind to tell Don about her not-quite ex-husband Gregg, but Gregg has not forgotten about her.

It's business as usual in Tinseltown. The one exception is the dark and tragic Anya, who was orphaned at a young age and watched her fate slide from bad to worse at the hands of depraved men and women who would steal her humanity. She's quite a contrast to the other, smoothly glittering characters, but her story in particular really drives the book and gives it depth.

Jackie Collins may not be synonymous with classics, but her books always make me keep turning the pages to find out what will happen next. She also writes with a well-honed sense of irony that always makes me chuckle. Her books are always good, but this one was exceptional, the best she's written in years.

I will read this book again. Her books are always great. I really thought the ending was appropriate. A must read.

I am a HUGE fan of Jackie Collins have all her books specially the 80s Stud. B*tch,etc..in the original piccy covers...As I am noticing in Jackie latest novel, which as always keeps you entertained. I find that she has some of the same type of characters, just different names.. In this book she bring Cole back with a more prominent story lines than before. Natalie his sister also has a few lines, which she jumped from strggling news reporter to as it seem ET anchor. The character Don Verona talk show host, no nonsense all about me, is also similar to another character from previous book with the name Falcone.
Though the book starts off nice, goes back-forth past/present with the character Anya who I didn't understand why so much depth was put into that character, when her story lines is just on the edge of the whole book w/a later prominence towards the end. which Im sorry to say had an almost similarity from another book I think Thrill...Jackie always writes such colourful verbage that has you absorbing every yummy word..cheers to that!!..but sometimes the characters are lately predictable and have that feeling of didn't I read something like that in another book..Im missing that bite she usually puts in her book..entertaining at least

Have to admit that I read this book fast and found it hard to put down but it couldn't compare to her earlier works...I hate to say this but was not thrilled with her last two books and believe me I am a big fan of hers, but it just seems so formula lately and was so disappointed by the ending...As another reviewer said it was so rushed and I actually got the feeling that she was tired of writing....also hated that Cameron ended up with Ryan....He was so weak he couldn't even control his Hollywood Wife...Felt sorry for poor Don...He was my hero and I wished there had been someone in the end for him.....Also noted the errors mentioned above and can't believe that a big publishing company would put out books with such blatant errors....Who are their proofreaders.......
