All the women are either oversexed wh*res or naive virginal innocents. All the men are sex starved brutes who take women by force if they don't give in willingly. Even the nice guys when pushed far enough turn into brutes.
The story is ridiculous. Anne is a politican's daughter newly divorced from her husband who wants to turn her in a Real Housewife of DC. Through an old high school friend turned actress she meets oversexed manwh*re Webb. During the course of one day Webb screws her three times (the first time by force of course) and gives her mind blowing orgasms. They fall in love, they fight, they break-up, they go their separate ways all in ONE DAY!
To forget Webb Anne moves to Europe and becomes a top fashion model. Every man Anne comes in contact with takes sexual avantage of her (or wants to). In the meantime, to forget Anne, every woman Webb comes in contact with he screws. From time to time Anne encounters Webb and whenever she does, something bad happens. She's eventually cast as the leading lady in a movie co-starring Webb filmed at a mansion on a secluded island. Much intrigue, double crossing, and subplots ensue including Anne getting raped - not once but twice - by a fellow actor. The second time actually turns into a gangbang that Webb watches but doesn't stop. However, such minor nuisances as a gangbang rape or physical violence has no effect on Anne at all because she's in love and will stop at nothing to get her man.Read more ›
Anne is drawn to Webb, a man who seems to be all wrong for her. Webb is hard and brutal and successful, so masculine he threatens to dominate Anne like the other men in her life. Frightened, she runs off with a long succession of older, seemingly kinder men, yet they turn out to be more manipulative than truly caring. As a neglected trophy wife, Anne develops a dangerous dependency on pills like Valium -- Rosemary Rogers shows clearly how a jet-set world that makes drug abuse seem chic and sophisticated can easily harm the innocent. Drifting this way and that, pursued by men and losing herself in sensation, Anne nearly loses it all -- before Webb comes to the rescue.
THE CROWD PLEASERS is scary sometimes, touching and poignant and even melancholy -- but always oh so powerful and sexy!
As some other reviewers wrote, the rape and gang rapes were disgusting and unbelievable. The supporting characters were written like stereotypical cardboard cutouts.Read more ›

I read it back in the 1970's, one of the most erotic and intimate books i'd read at that young age. 37 yrs later I discovered it still is. Read morePublished 19 months ago by jane

This book is NOT a romance novel. I thought I was reading a Jackie Collins book or Sidney Sheldon's or something- But ROMANCE? NO. More like sex, drugs and videotape. Read morePublished on March 11, 2012 by Book lover
