Deadly Embrace by Jackie Collins

What can I say... I am on a kick for Ms. Collins' books. Deadly Embrace was a prequel (though written after) to Lethal Seduction. I got this one from the library and read it real fast. Another great read and I rank it an A-.

Nothing has prepared Madison Castelli for learning the truth about her father- revelations about murderous crimes that have thrown the beautiful, street-smart journalist into a tailspin. Michael Castelli, on the run in Las Vegas, vows to exact revenge on his enemies. Meanwhile, Madison steps into a deadly trap in L.A., where one mistake may cost her her life. She can try to run from danger, but playing with fire runs in her family.

This book focuses more on Michael, Madison's father and how he has ended up in his situation. The book goes all the way back to before he was born and cleverly interwinds several different characters to come to an explosive conclusion. There is still some of the same sex and murder and revenge that were shown in Lethal Seduction that kept me turning the pages. Secrets are exposed and really give the reader an understanding for all of the characters motivations, especially since I had so recently read Lethal Seduction. I think I enjoyed Lethal Seduction a little bit more because there were other characters that didn't have much to do with Madison that I really enjoyed as well. I know of at least one more book that features Madison in it and I do plan on checking it out from the library. I just don't think I can gush enough about her books, they have all been great reads!!!

Happy reading!

Thanks for checking it out! I love the fashion blog and am almost obsessing with checking it. I think you have awakened my shopping bug. All I can ask for is more posts! Maybe updates on what you buy?
