The characters, especially our heroine Jade, were very well defined and interesting. The story kept my interest, and like any good Sandra Brown book, kept me reading long past bedtime!

The writing is good, with lots of descriptives. While I was impressed with the plot, and how it unravels (catching the reader off guard) I found the heroine's consistent line of "I just can't get over this" wore me out by the end of the book.

This is a somewhat interesting read. The plot is basically a revenge plot with a love story. There are some sad parts.

BREATH OF SCANDAL is my absolute favorite Sandra Brown story. I read it as a teen and have re-read it a few times over the years. Jade Sperry was an unforgettable character. I could never forget what happened to her...and how she triumphed! If you haven't read this one, grab it today!

Another winner from Sandra Brown. This novel is about Jade. As a high school girl in rural South Carolina, she is brutally raped by three of her classmates and left to die. She quickly learns that she'll never obtain justice through the legal system in small town America, since the sheriff's son is one of her attackers. Jade begins to plan her revenge instead.

The characters were very real, the situations authentic and it was difficult to anticipate what would happen next. Two of the villans in the book died before Jade was able to extract her revenge. The remaining two were partially beaten when Jade set up her sting operation.

I enjoyed the book immensely.

This is one of my favorite books by Sandra Brown. It was a very long book, but it kept me VERY entertained! It made me happy, sad, jealous (dillan yummy)lol. The writting was so discriptive it made me feel her pain. There are many sex scenes and one towards the end was so sweet, i almost cried ok i did cry (break out of shell one). Revenge is sooo sweet, when you read this you will see. The last scene (sex scene) i dont know how i feel about that one, im still questioning it. To each there own everyone deals diffrent, but i dont know how i feel about it. Too me it was almost morbed. You know the saying keep your freinds close and your enemies closer! Well reverse that with this book! Keep your enemies close and your friends closer! I dont know how many times, I wanted to slap the shit out of some of her so called friends. Anyway REALLY

Of all her books this has been my absolute favorite. Excellent story line and not too much passion which Sandra Brown is good for. I didn't want the book to end.

On a night in her senior year in high school, college bound Jade Sperry endures gang rape at the hands of the rich man's son and his cronies. Years pass while Jade gets her education, has a baby and gets her life together, but she never forgets that night and her vow to exact revenge. Returning to her hometown to open a factory for her company, she lays the groundwork and succeeds in her goals, finding the possibility of love along the way.

Understanding this is one of Sandra Brown's earlier works, whoever edited this book should be strung up. The story line is fantastic, but the dialogue sometimes drags and the subplots seem to have been added as an afterthought. Dick Hill's narration was WAY overacted, still, it was a good story. It just didn't measure up to Sandra Brown standards. If you like audio books, this story would probably work well in the abridged version.

Jade Sperry's entire professional life is dedicated to one purpose: revenge. As a pretty and intelligent high school senior she is raped by three classmates, an attack instigated by Neal Patchett, the son of the most powerful man in Palmetto, S.C. No one, not even her own mother, believes Jade's tale, and her boyfriend, led to think she cheated on him, commits suicide. Jade vows to destroy all three boys, especially Neal. She has become pregnant from the attack, but she wins a full scholarship to college and takes her baby son with her. Even after she achieves professional success, her violent past will not allow her to enjoy healthy relationships with men--until she meets Dillon Burke, whom she hires to build the construction project in Palmetto that will spell financial ruin to Neal Patchett and his father.

Not the best Sandra Brown I've read. I felt this one was lacking the "mystery" element of the plot. Other than that, a typical Brown novel.

A good book but I found myself thinking it read like a Danielle Steele novel (which isn't bad - just different).

BREATH OF SCANDAL is an intriguing and heart wrenching tale about a young girl's rape and her fight for survival. I was intrigued by the book by page one. The story kept my interest and I felt all sorts of emotions. Jade was a strong woman and I was so glad for her to meet someone like Dillon, a man who also suffered the cruelty of fate, a man seeking for a new start. It was mystery and romance all wrapped up into one story. Good book..

I just finished it, found it hard to put down.
I felt it was a little different for Sandra Brown's
writing. A lot of it was about revenge, but inspite
of that I found it interesting.
