Reviews for Power Trip

AudioFile Reviews 2013 July
A passel of characters is onboard a luxury liner for its maiden voyage: a Russian billionaire and his supermodel girlfriend; a mega-movie star and his desperate but likable partner; a famous Brit footballer and his social-climbing wife; a senator and his beautiful but unhappy other half; a Latin pop star and his wicked boyfriend; and a hunky journalist and his do-gooder date. When uninvited guests--a Mexican pirate gang hired by a Russian mobster bent on revenge--show up, Collins's sizzling, naughty romp takes off. All the narrators hit home runs, perfectly embodying their characters. And they all nail the requisite accents: posh and working-class British, sinister Russian, upscale and down-to-earth American, and sexy Latin. This is a great summer listen. A.C.P.

Publishers Weekly Reviews 2013 March #4

This latest steamy tale from Collins centers on a luxurious cruise featuring an elite group of men and women from the realms of politics, business, entertainment, and sports who must face both their own scandals and the threat of an international band of pirates. The full cast--led by Collins herself--certainly brings vocal talent to the production, offering a broad range of performance styles. As the voices and accents for characters shift with each narrator, this variety will either prove energizing or dizzying, depending on the listener's taste. In the case of one particularly despicable villain--the sexually reckless Senator Hammond Patterson--it is interesting to hear the narrators' different renderings. Collins's performance captures the titillating tone of her own brand nicely, setting the stage for the rest of the cast to apply their craft as the storyline unfolds. Porter and Graham shine as they tackle the range of emotions and larger-than-life personalities. A St. Martin's hardcover. (Feb.)
