“If you keep dangerous secrets you’ll pay the ultimate price…
In the South of France, playground of the rich and famous, world renowned chef Dexter Franklin is organising a night to remember. As he opens the doors to his exclusive restaurant for the first time, he’s handpicked a list of guests, as hot and dazzling as the St Tropez sun itself:
Mew Stanton: Fashionable, beautiful and a notorious TV chef, Dexter’s ex-girlfriend has all the ingredients for success. As her books fly off the shelves, a secret from her past is about to surface with explosive consequences.
Holly Lydon: Ex girlband star who has fallen on hard times. Forced to make ends meet she’s having to sleep her way to the top. Now she’s making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Rosita Velázquez: Brazilian actress extraordinaire and girlfriend of Dexter’s brother, Leland. When she’s in town everybody needs to know about it, but this is one show-stopping entrance she’ll live to regret.
Three women have a past with Dexter and a grudge to bear against him. As fireworks ignite in the jet set capital of Europe, there’s murder on the menu. Who will be served their just desserts?
The sun is setting in the South of France. Pour yourself a glass of champagne and sit back for a read of revenge, regrets and shocking revelations that will have you hooked to the very last page.”
Nigel May is described as the “New Jackie Collins” and let me tell you, he is every bit worthy of this title. His books are one of my guilty pleasures. 80s books without the bad hair and shoulder pads, so when I was offered the chance to take part in the Blog Tour for his latest offering, Revenge, I jumped at the chance.
The glitz and glamour is in full swing as a group of handpicked guests make their way to St Tropez for the grand opening of celebrity chef, Dexter Franklin’s swanky new restaurant Trésor. An eclectic mix of current celebrities and has beens with larger than life personalities are all on the exclusive guest list. Some even have shared pasts with each other having crossed swords on more than one occasion. When all these people are finally put in a room together the explosive fireworks start. Someone has a plan for murderous revenge as scandalous secrets and lies are uncovered.
The setting could not be any more picturesque, sun drenched and packed with the rich and famous living the life some can only dream of. The writing flows effortlessly as the author explores themes of power, sex, jealousy, rivalry and revenge.
The characterisation is superb, Nigel has a talent for creating colourful, tenacious and outrageous characters you just love to hate. When you are not shaking your head in faux outrage you are holding your breath, eager to find out which skeletons are next to come out the closet.
There are a lot of sex scenes through the book, but this is not some 50 Shades shady offering, it’s a Bonkbuster with an enthralling story line you cannot tear yourself away from. It’s a fun and flirty read, and whilst the blurb advises that you should pour yourself a glass of champagne, I would say you would be better buying yourself a bottle as when you sit down to this indulgent tale you won’t want to stop till it’s finished.
Treat yourself, I PROMISE you will not be disappointed.
Thanks to Nigel May and Kim Nash at Bookouture for the copy of Revenge and chance to take part in this amazing blog tour.
About the Author
Nigel May has been described as “the UK’s male Jackie Collins” and “the readers’ Viagra” and is an author and TV host. His six page-turning fiction novels have all been published by Bookouture.
His first glam fiction novel was TRINITY, an action-packed blockbuster (or bonkbuster) about the lives of the rich and famous and three young women at the heart of it. Glamour, beauty, fame and celebrity mix with murder, intrigue and danger to create an explosive novel which gained incredible reviews and fans across the globe.
The glitz-meets-grit whodunit ADDICTED was another huge success and once again dived into the diamond-dipped world of the mega-rich as four women face their demons. But all of the money and celebrity fame in the world do not guarantee a happy ending. Especially for one of them…
SCANDALOUS LIES is steeped in secrets, sin, sex and scandal and takes readers around the world as a mysterious celebrity disappearance is investigated. Will weathergirl Georgia be able to find out what is behind her best friend’s inexplicable vanishing before it’s too late?
Spicy crime on overload for DEADLY OBSESSION, a gritty and glamorous psychological tale set in gangland Manchester that is dynamic and thrilling in all areas to the very last page. When Amy sees her husband gunned down at their nightclub, The Kitty Kat Club, she faces life as a young widow. But then six months later, a letter arrives from beyond the grave…
LOVERS AND LIARS is a truly tropical burst of storytelling where money and sex go hand in hand with murder. When Millionaire playboy Sheridan Rivers is found dead at his luxurious hotel on the paradise island of Barbados, there are several suspects in the frame. But who delivered the fatal blow?
Completing his sexy six-pack, REVENGE is a total page-turner. In the South of France, playground of the rich and famous, world renowned chef Dexter Franklin is organising a night to remember. As he opens the doors to his exclusive restaurant for the first time, he’s handpicked a list of guests, as hot and dazzling as the St Tropez sun itself. Three women have a past with Dexter and a grudge to bear against him. As fireworks ignite in the jet set capital of Europe, there’s murder on the menu. Who will be served their just desserts?
