Book Review: Double Standards by Judith McNaught

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | Double Standards by Judith McNaught

Genre: Romance
Book Name: Double Standards
Author: Judith McNaught
Pages: 310
Publication Year: 1984

It’s wonderful how time changes our perspective even though the item in question remains the same. There was a time I was gaga over Mills & Boons, Twilight etc, and Judith McNaught was one of my favorite authors then. Oh, I am talking about 10 years back. And now, gosh…

No doubt Judith is considered as one of the contemporary romantic writers, however this time I found it hard to digest romantic overtures, tempestuous sensuous sex, romance and cheating in the midst of corporate business life and filthy rich people. Oh, there will still be lot many people who still believe these stories as fairy-tales, and why not? After all, even after so many ups and downs, the girl gets her prince charming in the end. Definitely for love-fools (just kidding), for romance lovers and those who have not gone cynical like me!

Keep watching my blog for more book reviews this weekend.

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
In the exclusive, glittering world of business superstars, Nick Sinclair was a legend…

The ruggedly handsome president of Global Industries handled his business the way he handled his women — with charm, daring and ruthless self-control. A man used to the very best, Nick hired Lauren Danner, and assumed the proud beauty would soon be another easy conquest. But Lauren’s flashing wit and rare spirit dazzled him — and slowly, against his will, he was intrigued, challenged — and in love.

Yet Lauren was living a lie, a charade that became more dangerous with every passing moment. Trapped in a web of deceit, she fought her growing love for Nick. Her secret could destroy his fragile trust — and the promise of life with the most compelling man she had ever met!
