Publisher's Summary

Dangerous sex, family secrets, irresistible power, mega money, and two murders equal one reckless week in New York. Lovers and Players takes you on a high-powered trip from Park Avenue to Brooklyn. Jackie Collins is back in her most deliciously scandalous novel yet. And she's giving her readers a revealing look into the private realms of her fabulously rich and sexy cast of characters. In Lovers and Players, the Diamond family's power extends from coast to coast. Max, a real estate tycoon; Chris, a Hollywood lawyer; and Jett, a young, handsome ex-druggie, now a successful model in Italy, must finally come face to face with their tyrannical father, Red, who has been controlling their world for as long as they can remember. Working as Red's housekeeper is Diahann, a beautiful black ex-singer. Her stunning bi-racial 19-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. Amy Scott-Simon, a beguilingly pretty young New York heiress, is engaged to marry Max Diamond. At her bachelorette party she runs into Jett, Max's younger brother. Jet has no idea who Amy is. She also doesn't realize who he is. A one-night fling leads to major complications. As the lives of these characters intertwine, power, money, fame and love are the ties that bind, emotionally and otherwise, in this highly charged love story about family relationships and deadly choices.

Lovers and Players

Jackie Collins has an amazing ability to write a hot steaming action packed novel. She was able to tell each charter's story in abundance. Never once did I feel lost. However, I feel that Ms. Collins has a skewed interpretation of how African Americans speak….I was offended to say the least with her stereotypical views of African Americans.. I would imagine that with Ms. Collins being both an actress/author, she’d have more than enough interaction with African Americans to know better.

Red Diamond's Dysfunctional Family

I haven't read many Jackie Collins' books but I may have to go back and listen to a few more as I found this one to be pure entertainment. There are lots of characters to keep track of and somehow they all manage to intertwine in the end. Steamy sex scenes, tabloid scandals, murders, fashion models, business tycoons, Russian mobsters, coffee house waitresses, rap stars, and music business executives are some of the characters who mix it up to create a great time for the listener. I thought this was a good, easy fun listen. Very enjoyable.
