From Goodreads:
Lucky runs a high profile casino and hotel complex, The Keys in Vegas.
Lennie, her movie star husband, is still writing and directing successful independent movies, while Max, her stubborn and gorgeous teenage daughter is about to celebrate her 18th birthday, and her son, Bobby, owns a string of hot clubs. Lucky has everything. Family. Love. Life.
And everything is exactly what billionaire businessman Armand Jordan is determined to take from her one way or the other.
Meanwhile Bobby is dealing with shady Russian investors, while his girlfriend—smart and independent Denver Jones—is becoming a Deputy D.A. in the L.A. drug unit.
And Max, Bobby’s seventeen year old sister, is busy embarking on a forbidden affair with a sexy young movie star. An affair they have to keep on the down-low lest Lucky finds out.
The word is that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” and what happens in Goddess of Vengeance will blow your mind!

My Rating:
Quick Thoughts:  Soap Opera meets reality TV anyone?
This is my first Jackie Collins novel and my only introduction to the Lucky series so I didn't really know what to expect.  There was so much drama and craziness, I just couldn't look away.  There are TONS of characters to keep up with but their distinct situations make it easy to  stay connected with everyone.  I expected  the main character to be Lucky of sorts but her daughter, Max, really takes that role.  I didn't love Max and her teenage angst meets hollywood attitude but I loved everyone together.  Oooh and how about that horrible, vile, villain?  This crazy, hollywood, fast-paced, soap-opera has something for everyone.  I would have finished it sooner but my dad and I were sharing this read.  This is the last time I have a book sent to my parents' home : / (My dad does not know how to share).  You like reality TV or hate to admit you like reality TV, go grab this book.
