Hollywood Wives: The New Generation
Power! Sex! Money! Fame!
The new Hollywood wives are back with a vengeance. Whatever they don't have, they want -- and whatever these women want, they get.
Unlike their counterparts in the '80s, who were happy to give charity dinners and exclusive parties to further their husbands' careers, today's Hollywood wives are hungry to create their own identities. These ladies are into achieving everything their famous husbands have and more, and will stop at nothing for a chance in the spotlight.
Ambitious, young, smart, and lethal, the new Hollywood wives are into yoga, fasting, spinning, Pilates, their own production companies, and making things happen.
In "Hollywood Wives -- The New Generation," you will meet...
Lissa Roman, mega movie and singing star -- a forty-year-old platinum blonde with attitude. Lissa is at the top of her game, until she begins to suspect that Gregg, her decade-younger fourth husband, is cheating.
Nicci Stone, Lissa's wild, nineteen-year-old daughter. Nicci is engaged to hot filmmaker Evan Richter, but Nicci has a dilemma: Does she love Evan, or is Evan's bad boy brother and partner, Brian, really the man she wants?
Taylor Singer, a sometime actress and would-be producer. She's married to Lawrence J. Singer, a fifty-year-old Oscar-winning genius.
Taylor, a sexy, thirty-six-year-old beauty, craves the power and respect given her famous husband, but how can she get it? Certainly not by sleeping with Oliver Rock -- a twenty-two-year-old perpetually stoned screenwriter. So against her husband's wishes, Taylor accepts a role in a lesbian-themed cable movie.
Stella Rossiter, a smart-mouthed blonde and producing partner with hersuccessful husband, Seth -- who just happens to be thirty years older than she. Together they make hit movies, while a surrogate mother -- recipient of "her" eggs and "his" sperm -- waits to give birth to their twins.
Michael Scorsinni, handsome with a dangerous edge. He's a former New York City cop (last seen in "Hollywood Kids)" who now runs a private detective agency in Los Angeles. A man who has his own demons from which to escape.
Intruding on the privileged lives of this select group is...
Eric Vernon, a psychopath from out of town -- a man with kidnapping on his mind.
And his intended victim is not just anybody.
"Hollywood Wives -- The New Generation" explores the secrets of the women in today's Hollywood: their loves, their passions, their affairs, and most of all, their ruthless ambitions.
As always, Jackie Collins views Hollywood and its inhabitants with an insider's eye. And like the original "Hollywood Wives" -- a number-one "New York Times" bestseller and highly rated ABC miniseries, starring Anthony Hopkins and Candice Bergen -- the new breed will shock and surprise, amuse and startle, and take the reader on a trip not soon forgotten.
"Hollywood Wives -- The New Generation" promises marital mayhem for the new millennium.

This is a trash novel. The plot is as thin as some actresses; the characters are cardboard cutouts. But it's the kind of trash novel that I take guilty pleasure in devouring at the beach. Read full review

Good trashy fun. Struck the right balance between light fun and a serious story. The wrap up was a bit quick and anyone who survived to the end seemed to have a happy ending, but overall a good story. Read full review
