You know those moments when you’re bored and find yourself doing ridiculous searches on the internet and stumble upon something so unexpected that you just have to get it? Well, that’s how I came about reading Malibu 90265 which just happened to be co-authored by Ringo Starr’s former fiancé Nancy Lee Andrews (and Linda Lane)! It’s also my justification for reviewing it as a Beatles related book on this blog, because one has to wonder if Ritchie was the influence behind any of the male characters.
Published in 1990, Malibu 90265 is exactly what you would expect it to be by the name and book cover image…a steamy romance novel that contains all sorts of debauchery and sexual exploits that would be expected of the Hollywood/Malibu crowd! Nothing seemed to be off-limits to Lane and Andrews as the write about a circle of friends and lovers in this 310 page romance novel.
Don’t get me wrong here…I’m not a fan of romance novels. I can probably count on one hand the number of smut novels I’ve read in my lifetime. It just ain’t my bag, baby! But when I found one authored by someone that I know, I had to dive in head first to see how deep Nancy would go. And to tell you the truth…she goes pretty damn deep into the sex scenes, only proving that she’s not only sexy on the outside, but on the inside too! From the story lines, it’s obvious that Andrews and Lane are feminists too, as the female characters prove themselves in this book.
If you need a beach read this summer, or just want to see another one of Ms. Andrews’ many talents on display, you can actually pick up a used copy of this book for $0.01 on Amazon.com! Don’t be shy…you know you want to read it! Indulge your senses. And for that reason…
I rate this book, 3 out of 4 Beetles!
