If you like romance,danger and intrigue with a lot of naughtiness thrown in - this is for you. Its real escapism.... From the first page I was captured and involved with all the characters. It is about high flying celebs with varied backrounds,all invited to join a billionaire couple on their yacht - its full of suspense and glamour with twists that you cannot imagine, it really is the best of Jackie Collins......I wanted to know the ending and at the same time did not want this wonderful journey with all these celebs to finish. So enjoyable.

I read the preview in either Take 5 or That's Life and decided I had to have the book. It was one of the best books I have read, couldn't put it down and kept you so engrossed all the time. Great book!

I have read all Jackie Collins novels and this is not one of her best. I actually checked to make sure it was written by Jackie and not Joan. Chances, Lucky, Lovers and Gamblers...these are 5 star novels. This book was tedious with none of the intrigue of a Jackie Collins novel. The characters were 2 dimensional and the plot line had no twists in it. I can't imagine anyone not knowing exactly what was going to happen. Big disappointment.

Format: Hardcover
Aleksandr Kasianenko has a big birthday surprise planned for his mistress, Bianca. He is going to throw a birthday bash on his huge yacht named of course, Bianca. Aleksandr invites five couples: Senator Hammond Patterson and his wife, Sierra; movie star, Cliff Baxter and his lover, Lori; celebrity footballer, Taye Sherwin and his wife, Ashley. Singer, Luca Perez and his boyfriend, Jeromy. And journalist, Flynn and his friend Xuan.

Sergei Zukov is on a vengeful mission to eliminate Aleksandr. Sergei has found out some information regarding the billionaire that has him seeing red. When Sergei finds out that Aleksandr will be taking a trip on his yacht, he sees the perfect opportunity to get his revenge.

When I pick up a Jackie Collins book I know what I am in for. It is a bunch of crazy characters, a soap opera style story line, an ending where almost all of the characters have a happy ending...all rolled up into a quick and mindless read. This is not a bad thing. I always need something that I don't have to put too much attention into what I am reading and I know that will leave me saying "Ok, Jackie has done it again".

This book kind of left me disappointed. I found myself wanting to like a few of the characters but I could not stand any of them. Their self-centered images, sexiest behavior, whininess, and plasticness quickly got to me and turned me off. The first 114 pages were spent in explaining each of the couple's relationships and why some of the couples had motive to want to kill each other. By the time that the couples boarded the yacht, I tried to stick with the book but could not. I flashed forward to when the action started with the pirates. The epilogue sums up the story line in case you missed anything. I would say that the Power Trip is kind of like a guilty pleasure.

When I read a book that is soley for the purpose of pleasure/entertainment, I don't care what the content is as long as it serves its purpose. Many books have served this purpose and many have not. This author seems to always succeed in my book (pun intended). This book was so good, I found myself staying up way past my bedtime because I did not want to wait to see what happened next! The characters were interesting, the plot was captivating, and the ending was fullfulling (it ruins the whole book if the ending sucks in my opinion). Ms. Collins is a superb writer as she pulls you into her story and does not let go until the very end! Actually, I was still there even after the book ended, wanting more!!

Have been a huge fan of Ms Collins for ages but some thing went wrong here. Feels rushed and under developed. Got through it in a day.....not up to her standard

Format: Hardcover
When Russian billionaire Aleksandr Kasianenko plans an elaborate birthday celebration for his supermodel mistress, Bianca, no detail is overlooked. A custom super-yacht on the mystifying Sea of Cortez, exquisite cuisine, personal tours of private islands, and a finitely detailed guest list of five of the world's most powerful couples will make Bianca's thirtieth birthday an historic one. Among the party are UK celebrity footballer Taye Sherwin and his interior designer wife, Ashley; Latin music superstar Luca Perez and his haughty English boyfriend, Jeromy; devious US Senator Hammond Patterson and his unhappily married wife, Sierra; world-renowned journalist Flynn Hudson and his humanitarian-minded friend, Xuan; and well-aged movie star Cliff Baxter, a perpetual bachelor and regular Sexiest Man Alive alum, with his spirited younger girlfriend, Lori. With its star-studded array of passengers and finely-crafted amenities, the yacht's stage is set as the million-dollar attendees lavish themselves amid the most extravagant glamour money can buy. But trouble finds paradise - or perhaps it never left; Ashley wants revenge from Taye, who made tabloid headlines when he cheated on her; Luca is discovering that Jeromy's sexual insatiability has led him outside their relationship; Sierra is struggling with the realization of her senator husband's sexual perversions and personal deceits; Flynn can't seem to escape the one woman he's ever loved, while Xuan finds herself in Bianca's crosshairs; and free-spirited Lori is determined to set Cliff off his path of bachelorhood and onto the road to marriage. Meanwhile for Aleksander, an old enemy is plotting his revenge for past wrongs with the help of a Mexican daredevil and his wily band of pirates.Read more ›
