Synopsis of Lovers & Players

Amy Scott-Simon, a beguilingly pretty young New York heiress, is engaged to marry Max Diamond, an older powerful real estate tycoon. At her bachelorette party she runs into Jett, Max’s younger half-brother — fresh back from Italy, where he is a successful male model. A one-time drug addict, now in the Program — Jett has no idea who Amy is. She also doesn’t realize who he is. A one night fling leads to complications and regrets.

Meanwhile, Chris Diamond, a hot L.A. entertainment lawyer, flies into town to meet with his two brothers and Red Diamond, the boys’ billionaire dysfunctional father, and abusive bully.

Working as Reds’ housekeeper is Diahann, a beautiful black ex-singer. Her stunning bi-racial nineteen-year-old daughter Liberty, a waitress who is a would-be singer herself — does not approve of her mother working as a housekeeper. Liberty has dreams of her own, and while she pursues them, Damon P. Donnell, married hip-hop mogul supreme — pursues her.

And then there is Mariska, Max’s Russian socialite ex-wife, a woman with more secrets than anyone, secrets that ultimately lead to her brutal and mysterious murder.

As the lives of these characters intertwine over a seven day period in New York, power, love, sex, money and fame are the ties that bind — emotionally and otherwise — in this highly charged love story about family relationships, deadly choices and dangerous sex.

    Ahhh the book that started it all for me! I was never into reading until one day I was walking around a barnes and noble with my ex…well needless to say I had some time to kill and decided that the cover of the book was pretty. Wow, pretty…I know. But hey that pretty cover introduced me to the world of JACKIE COLLINS! Now I am HOOKED! I blew through this book and could not wait to sink my teeth into everything and anything written by Jackie! It is crazy how addicted to a style of writting you can get….with that said I have finished the Chances Series and watched both mini series that where made (found them both on Amazon…a bit of a challenge, but well worth it! I even had to go out and purchase a VCR to watch them on haha!) Now I am reading Lovers and Gamblers, which I am due to finish any day now =) I am so excited about Poor Little Bitch Girl…Feb 9th can not get here fast enough!!! Thank you so much Jackie for actually getting me into reading and having so many wonderful books for me to get hooked on! AND also for making so many mini series follow your books…it is such a treat to get to watch them after I read the books! =) I am a faithful fan for life!

    I love this book,which I´m currently reading.It is my re-introduction to all-thing Jackie Collins and I love it.My favorite character in the book is Jett,he is not only drop dead gorgeous but interesting and fun also.I love the build up of the brothers relationship with their abusive father,good stuff, but the story of Jett lusting after Amy is even jucier.I re-read Chances this summer and I plan on re-reading Lucky,and the sequels,American Star,Hollywood Wives and Hollywood Husbands and so on.I grew up with your books and they are highly entertaining and well written.What I like about them is the mix of good characterisation,money,power,sex and so on.It´s a good mix.

    Books I recommend?Hmm All of them:)
    No seriously.First off,the Santangelo saga,it´s epic and higly addictive.Hollywood wives and Hollywood husbands,Rock Star,if you love Mick Jagger/Rod Stewart/ Stax/Motown kid of music this is the novel for you.But the Diamonds give them a good run for their money.

About Jackie

Jackie CollinsThere have been many imitators, but only Jackie Collins can tell you what really goes on in the fastest lane of all.

From Beverly Hills bedrooms to a raunchy prowl along the streets of Hollywood; from glittering rock parties and concerts to stretch limos and the mansions of the power brokers — Jackie Collins chronicles the real truth from the inside looking out.

Jackie Collins has been called a “raunchy moralist” by the late director Louis Malle and “Hollywood’s own Marcel Proust” by Vanity Fair magazine. With over 500 million copies of her books sold in more than 40 countries, and with some thirty New York Times bestsellers to her credit, Jackie Collins is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. She is known for giving her readers an unrivaled insiders knowledge of Hollywood and the glamorous lives and loves of the rich, famous, and infamous! “I write about real people in disguise,” she says. “If anything, my characters are toned down — the truth is much more bizarre.”
