This was the first Jackie Collins novel I've read / listened to outside of the Lucky Santangelo stories. I must say she had some very sterotypical characters: the overly dramatic gay interior designer; the beautiful model who thinks the world revolves around her (and according to her wealthy, married boyfriend, it does); and the pervert politician who treats his wife poorly (but refuses to allow her the divorce she wants as she is the perfect "future First Lady") and sleeps with whomever he desires. The mixing of 6 couples on a luxury yacht, some with interesting connections (both current and in the past) makes for an interesting story--had to keep listening to see what happened next!! I was a bit excited initially that Jackie Collins was narrating until I learned there were multiple narrators on this story, which caused a little disconnect of the characters as the narrators portrayed some of the same characters which made it difficult to follow which character was being referred to. Definitely worth a listen . . . or read!! 8 out of 10 for me.
