Bad Angels by Rebecca Chance.

Another classic Bonkbuster from sassy author Rebecca Chance.

This is a story set at Christmas time, but it's not a festive read in that sense so don't worry about leaving it until December before you take the plunge, it's a fun story you could read any time.

Set in an very posh apartment block the book has many characters all of whom either live or work in the building.  There is Melody, an actress who has just undergone plastic surgery; Jon, an ex-hitman, Andy the gay concierge; and that's just a few of the loveable, yet troubled characters you'll meet in this book.

In classic Rebecca Chance style their is A LOT of naughtiness in this book with all the characters having love interests and affairs with one and other.  It's so much fun to read and the variety of stories from the different characters mean there's never a dull moment as all the plots unfold.

I love the luxurious lifestyles lead by the characters in Limehouse Wharf, it is literally a totally different world from the one I live in and so reading about their extravagances is such wonderful escapism.  The sheer variety of characters and situations means that this is a really interesting book, packed full of fun and frolics, and ever so slightly x-rated too!

The back page blurb:
Step into Limehouse Wharf, the new, uber-luxury apartment building in Canary Wharf where celebrities who have had 'work' done can hole up until they have healed and which is about to see its most glamorous and scandalous Christmas yet. Staying there over the festive period is Melody Down, an actress whose career is in tatters after too much plastic surgery and who has fled LA to get her body and her boyfriend back. But is a 'well-meaning' friend about to sabotage all of Melody's Christmas wishes? Meanwhile, Aniela Fatyga, the nurse in residence, finds herself falling for the unlikely Jon Jordan, an assassin for hire who is also convalescing there. Will her feelings be reciprocated or will their sizzling relationship remain purely physical? And who is he on the run from? And then there's oligarch Grigor Khalofsky, the owner of Kensington football team, whose legendary Christmas party is about to get a whole lot more exciting when murder, blackmail and scandalous revelations decide to pay a visit along with Santa.
