This foray into the world of beautiful people takes you from London to New York, from Hollywood to Rio, and climaxes in the Amazonian jungles.
If you love Jackie Collins writing style and characters you will love Lovers and Gamblers. Dallas and Al King are truly some of Jackie Collins best characters. You will want to read this book. I only wish she would have written a sequel to this book to find out what happens to Dallas and Al King and if they get together forever.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Al King is a famous performer. He wants Miss Coast to Coast, Dallas. Dallas came from a life that she tries to hide. Prostitution, lesbianism (though forced), and attempted murder would tarnish her crown if the word got out.
Al King wants in her pants, as he wants in the pants of all pretty ladies. Dallas wants no part of that. She came from being a sex toy to being top of the world. Why go back down the hill? This book has 592 pages. Only text books should be that long. I overlooked that point. Too often reviewers will rate a book on the well known name of the author. Jackie Collins is a talented author. Is it Jackie Collins' best book? No, but it is still good.

LOVERS AND GAMBLERS
Grand Central Publishing Mass Market
ISBN: 978-0-446-35660-2 - Paperback
Reviewer: Annie Slessman
Summer is coming and nothing makes a better beach read than a Jackie Collins book. LOVERS AND GAMBLERS, originally published in the seventies, is back.
Al King, rock superstar is married and has a young son. However, this doesn't stop him from sampling the many women along his career path. Along the way he sees one woman he is unable to impress, Miss Coast to Coast, Dallas Lunde. Dallas, former prostitute, has set her sights on improving her place in this world. She sees King as just one more rock star who wants to have her.
While the first two parts of this book deal mainly with Al King's sexual prowess and Dallas as she attempts to deal with her former life and the people who can ruin her new career, it also brings into play the other characters who round out this work.
The last part of the book has more depth than the earlier sections. It deals with the survival of several survivors of an airplane crash. In the wilds of the South American jungle the metal of their wills are tested with surprising results.
Don't let this summer go by without taking a day to go the beach and enjoy not only the sun, but also LOVERS AND GAMBLERS.
