Chances by Jackie Collins + Giveaway

I was asked to review this book in celebration of the re-release of Chances for ereaders.
Chances is the first book in Jackie Collins Lucky Santangelo series.  This book literally has everything you can ever want in a story.  There is family drama, mystery, murder, suspense, romance, and a lil comedy.

The story starts with Gino Santangelo as a young boy.  Continues telling his story with his wife, Maria, their 2 children, Lucky and Mario, and many of their thug like friends.

My favorite story line is of Lucky, even though she is a female, taking over Gino’s empire when he is forced of the country by the IRS.  To see Gino’s daughter grow into a very tough, hard, core woman made me envious.  She truly made it to the top of a man’s world in a time that women mostly were stayed home and behind the man.

The side story of Carrie, a young lady, who grew up as a hooker and drug addict intertwined perfectly with Gino and Lucky’s story.  It kept me curious as to how the stories were going to mesh together over and over again.  I loved how Carries son, Steven, and Lucky met and cannot wait to see where that story heads.

Usually I am a fast reader with Chances I slowed way down so that I would not reach the end too quickly.  Now that I am finished I want to read it again and again.  I definitely will read the next book in this series.
