What I Thought:
Lust Garden is definitely different than my usual reads. Set in Hollywood and New York among the stars this is not your sweet Hollywood story. This book shares the dirtiness, the drugs, the sex, and the language of dysfunction. There are several different characters and the book hops around a bit making you keep up with what is going on.
Lust garden shares the raunchiness of show business with the mystery of a serial killer. The characters lives are wound in and out with complicated intricacy . Each one having their own secrets, their own troubles and their own journeys . Affairs, drug use, homosexuality, and murder this book gives you twist.
Giana Salvani has it all fame, fortune, and beauty. Actress/Singer even with all of her fame and fortune the girls has some serious troubles. Her sidekick Blair has secrets that will blow her away. Her lover Vance well they have a lot of issues. Giana's new lover well we will leave that for you to read. Mom troubles you bet. Heartache, and drama over losing her father at a young age you betcha. The girl has some serious baggage. Not to mention she is in the public eye, and the paparazzi are always on the chase. Plus she's somehow grabbed the attention of a killer. Wow, this girl may have money but no amount would give her a drama free life with all that .
If you are looking for something different and don't mind the language or sex this will be a book for you. I definitely do not recommend it for young adults or those who are looking for a "clean" read.
