Yet she’s falling into all the old traps she cautions other women to avoid. Kellyanne: She waits tables and plays mistress to a rich developer, holding out for her big break as an actress.

I think I am in love with J.J. Salem for he truly writes a book that captivates you from start to finish. First I had ordered The Strip by the same author. I had to get this one after finishing up that book.
Sex, romance, murder. All of the it are included in this book. I look forward to more from J.J. Salem!

If the object of the game was to see which author could make a frothy cocktail using liquor named Jackie Collins, Judith Krantz, Jacqueline Suzanne and Pat Booth then surely, Tan Lines by J.J. Salem would win that prize.

Tan Lines is the trashiest book ever written. Depending on the readers definition of "trash" that could be either a good thing or unbearable one. Three girls, Liza, Kellyanne and Billie are "those" girls we often read about in books like this. As the story begins there is a shocking murder in the Hamptons. Then, we go back through a sticky sweet maze of one cliche ridden drama after another. It is impossible to put down. I am not sure if the author intended his story to illicit roars of hysterical laughter--much in the way Mommie Dearest became an unintentional comedy but I roared with laughter. I was so totally engrossed in the bitchy, dishy narrative and over the top scenario that I was flabbergasted to discover I was almost at the end thinking, "There is NO way this book can wrap it all up in such a short span of pages." But it did, and, sad to report the final act of this mad cap ride through pink cotton candy fell flat. I wanted to call up the author and demand that he rewrite the ending as it seemed as though he was simply out of time and was told "finish"

Regardless, you don't pick up a book like this expecting literary wonders. You do so for an escape and in that respect, Tan Lines is a triumph.

Okay, I am a huge chick lit fan and I have to say that I have been thrilled to read Tan Lines by J.J. Salem. This book is extremely raunchy and pushes the envelope on almost every level, but it is such a wild ride of a read that you don't care - I just got on the bandwagon and kept reading to see where it would lead me.

Right from the beginning you just KNOW that our three leading characters, Liza, Kellyanne and Billie are heading for a huge fall - but somehow I just could not wait to find out just how low they would all need to go before they figured out that the road they were on - WAS THE WRONG ONE!!!!

If the old saying is true, then you understand why these three ended up finding each other.

What I also loved about this book is the fact that the girls, although confused and extremely sexual, still managed to convey a strong sense of girl power!!! and I am all for that. Interestingly enough, the men in this storyline are definitely backstories and the main focus is on the females - kind of like Sex and the Story - which this book reminded me of (except that I did not feel the love among the three friends all that much). This story was told with humor and honesty and although I can't say that I loved any of the main characters - they were wonderfully written and I totally enjoyed living through them.

Although this book may be shocking to some, there is actually a morale to this story. I also thought this book had the absolute best opening lines...caught my attention IMMEDIATELY.

If you are looking for a great chick lit read, then run to get this one.

Liza Pike has the perfect life. She is married to sexy, firefighter Justin. Also Liza is a regular on the TV show The Roundtable where she does her best work. She takes on the biggest names in the industry business of entertainment. Liza is a feminist who is huge on women's rights. Her latest victim is movie director Harrison Beck of "Watch Her Bleed". Harrison's latest movie is a slasher movie. Some people applaud Liza's feminist ways but others aren't so pleased with her and want to shut her up for good but who could it be? There are numerous people who don't like Liza like Harrison who Liza has commented on national television about his manhood, than there is her husband Justin; they haven't had sex in years and when Liza states this fact in front of one of her co-workers, Justin is mad. When Liza starts receiving death threats she doesn't take them too seriously as she knows she has made enemies in the business and doesn't care. So are the threats just someone's way to put Liza in her place or are the threats for real?

Kellyanne Downey is young, beautiful, and blonde. She is also the mistress to rich developer, Walter Isherwood. Kellyanne wants to be a successful actress. She gets approached by Brad "Bonzi" Lucas, producer for a reality show called "Soul Mates". Kellyanne agrees to be a contestant on the show not realizes what a sleaze Brad is. Brad decides that he is going to make Kellyanne out to be the drunk slut of the show unless she sleeps with him. All Kellyanne wants is some respect and to be loved is that too hard to ask?

Billie Shelton is a famous rock star. Unfortunately Billie's star is falling fast, that is until she is given a second chance. Amy Dando, Billie's manger introduces Billie to Todd Bana of Olympic Records, who wants to work with Billie. Todd tells Billie that the
White Tiger, a songwriting group has some songs that they think would be great for Billie. The only hitch is that Billie would have to change her image from rock star to pop star. Billie experiences the high life when Todd has her try cocaine for the first time. Now between drinking and drugs, it will be a miracle if Billie completes her next album.

So these three friends decide to try and get away from their hectic lives and spend the summer in The Hamptons.

Ok so Tan Lines has been labeled as a great beach read and I say Tan Lines is a great read anytime. It has laugh a minute humor, fun, intrigue, adventure and three sexy women. Each one of the characters Liza, Kellyanne, and Billie were outstanding in their own ways. The nice part I liked about this book was that they all tried to band together to help each other out. Tan Lines is a book you can tell your girlfriends about and have them talking about it for a long time. Plus the most amazing thing is that Tan Lines was written by a man! J.J. Salem has just become a new favorite of mine. There has only been one other guy author where I have found his writing style to be so dead on with women's' personalities that it was scary. I can't wait for J.J. Salem's next novel Bikini Wax to drop. In the mean time if you haven't picked up a copy yet of Tan Lines make sure to ......run not walk to the nearest bookstore and get yourself a copy today.
