Book Review: Scandalous by Tilly Bagshawe

Sasha Miller goes to Cambridge University with a dream, and leaves a broken woman. After losing her heart to sexy professor Theo Dexter, she departs in a scandal.
Meanwhile, as Theo becomes a television heartthrob, his long suffering wife Theresa realises that trust and fidelity are two words her husband doesn't understand. His betrayal is deeper than any cut.
Years later the two women will unite in a daring scheme to bring down the man who almost destroyed them both. It took them years to realise how one man could cause so much pain, but now they are determined he will regret the day he entered both of their lives...
This book was so good! It is a proper romp of a read, I didn't want to put it down once I had started it. I read some Jackie Collins books when I was a teenager and this reminded me of them, only it is much more up to date and scandalous. Tilly Bagshawe weaves a gripping story of glamour, lust, sex, betrayal, scandal and absolute greed.
Sasha Miller was my favourite character, we see her develop from a shy and naive undergraduate into a hugely successful businesswoman, hell bent on getting her revenge. Her target is Theo Dexter, the man she views as having ruined her life. He is a brilliant villain; handsome, charming and out for everything he can get, he doesn't care who he steps on along the way.
Scandalous takes place in the beautiful university city of Cambridge, the glamour of Hollywood and the high-powered business centre that is New York. As we travel from location to location we learn more and more about the characters and the shocking lengths they will go to in order to get what they want.
Scandalous is such an entertaining read, it would be perfect as a holiday book as you need to be prepared that once you have started you will probably want to finish it in one go. I am now definitely a Tilly Bagshawe fan, I shall be catching up with her other books.

Many thanks to the lovely people at Harper for sending me a copy to review, Scandalous is published today!

I read a lot of Jackie Collins when I was a teenager too and I loved them hehe. I've also read books by Tilly's sister, Louise Bagshawe, and they are really great beach reads. This sounds like a fab holiday read too, might pick this one up for some summer reading :)
