I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Lucky Santangelo. A fifteen-year-old wild child ready to discover life, love and independence. Daughter of the notorious Gino, Lucky discovers her mother’s murdered body floating in the family swimming pool at the tender age of four. Since then Gino has kept her protected from life closeted in their Bel Air mansion. But in Jackie Collins’Confessions of a Wild Child, Lucky finally breaks free, and running away from boarding school the adventures begin. Boys, sex, drugs and rock n’ roll – Lucky explores it all in preparation for the strong, kick-ass woman she eventually becomes. Delve into the world that Lucky rules!


I’ve been reading Jackie Collins for years, and am very familiar with Lucky Santangelo. Even though this was a flashback book and not one to move her story forward, I was still interested in reading about her childhood and how she came to be who she was today. I enjoyed this book and reading about Lucky’s wild years, yet I kept getting a niggling feeling that I had already read the majority of the book. A lot of the story wasn’t new to a reader who has been following the series, so it was more like brushing up on my knowledge. Not everything was that way though and I still learned a few new details about her childhood, and I loved the way it ended with her wedding day – at sixteen! The Santangelo story is a fascinating one, and I hope you can read the books!
