Review of Pleasure Island by Anna-Lou Weatherley - Five *


Secrets. Scandal. Betrayal. In Paradise, pleasure comes at a dangerously high price…

Three couples each receive an exclusive invitation to the fantasy holiday destination of a lifetime… 

The host: Martin McKenzie, global billionaire and media mogul. Charismatic, powerful and always gets what he wants. 

The location: A breathtakingly beautiful undiscovered island, nestled in the Aegean Sea. Private, secluded and not quite as it seems. 

The details: Seven days of pure hedonism, five-star luxury tailored to every desire, also includes… secrets, lies, and infidelity. 

As the guests begin to enjoy everything the luxury island has to offer, cracks begin to surface between the three couples. But that is not all. Someone is watching them. When they discover the truth – it will be explosive in more ways than they can ever imagine. 

A jaw-dropping, absorbing and spectacular blockbuster of a novel. THE beach read of the summer you won’t want to be without.


I loved the cover of this book and was really pleased when Bookouture sent me an ARC via NetGalley.

Appearances can be deceptive....and that is the crux of the whole book! The plot was unexpected, the characters larger than life and I was hooked from the first page!

Yes, there are some scenes which made me think, "Hang on - that's not right" but overall it was an exciting read and as a fan of manipulation in literature, I certainly wasn't disappointed! Everything is here - sex, drugs, rock 'n roll, celebrities, reality show, hackers, media attention (wanted and unwanted). 

The mastermind - Martin McKenzie - is a really nasty piece of work, but read on, reader, he will get his comeuppance!

Really enjoyed it - thank you!
