I would like to thank Francene Carroll for giving me her book for free in exchange for an honest review. Pleasure Island is a story about a has-been movie star, Jack Moore and a documentary film maker, Allie Read. They are an unlikely pair matched up to be on a two-person reality show, with a large amount of money being the prize for the winner. The womanizing Jack finally finds his match in Allie, as she is the only woman that has ever really been able to teach him something about life. One thing that I particularly enjoyed were allusions to Miss Haversham, a jilted character in Charles Dickens' Great Expectations. For a reader who has not read that book, the connection will be lost; for the reader who has read Dickens' book, it gives the reader some good laughs. I recommend this book to people who like reality TV shows and love stories with a Disney-like quality to them as well as some steamy scenes that are in good taste. I'd say that overall this book is worth read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
