Read Mad (Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know Trilogy #1) Online Free - In this compulsively readable debut, set between London and Sicily over one blood-drenched week in the dead of summer, an identical twin reveals the crazy lies and twists she'll go through to not only steal her sister's perfect life, but to keep on living it.
Alvie Knightly is a trainwreck: aimless, haphazard, and pretty much constantly drunk. Alvie's existence is made even more futile in contrast to that of her identical and perfect twin sister, Beth. Alvie lives on social media, eats kebabs for breakfast, and gets stopped at security when the sex toy in her carry-on starts buzzing. Beth is married to a hot, rich Italian, dotes on her beautiful baby boy, and has always been their mother's favorite. The twins' days of having anything in common besides their looks are long gone.
When Beth sends Alvie a first-class plane ticket to visit her in Italy, Alvie is reluctant to go. But when she gets fired from the job she hates and her flatmates kick her out on the streets, a luxury villa in glitzy Taormina suddenly sounds more appealing. Beth asks Alvie to swap places with her for just a few hours so she can go out unnoticed by her husband. Alvie jumps at the chance to take over her sister's life--if only temporarily. But when the night ends with Beth dead at the bottom of the pool, Alvie realizes that this is her chance to change her life.
Alvie quickly discovers that living Beth's life is harder than she thought. What was her sister hiding from her husband? And why did Beth invite her to Italy at all? As Alvie digs deeper, she uncovers Mafia connections, secret lovers, attractive hitmen, and one extremely corrupt priest, all of whom are starting to catch on to her charade. Now Alvie has to rely on all the skills that made her unemployable--a turned-to-11 sex drive, a love of guns, lying to her mother--if she wants to keep her million-dollar prize. She is uncensored, unhinged, and unforgettable.

I hated this book. The characters had no redeeming characteristics and the plot had more holes in it than a colander.

When this arrived unexpectedly I was really excited, looking at the front cover and reading the blurb I couldn't wait to get started, so I did, straight away! I read this book in 24 hours, as soon as I started I was hooked and needed to get to the next chapter.
This book is set over the period of...

This turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected it to be. Maybe there will be a review coming.

My mouth hung open throughout the reading of this book, which definitely pushed its limits.
I laughed out loud so many times while reading this and my boyfriend probably has a bruise from the amount of times I poked him in order to get his attention because I just had to share the amount of hilar...

This book was insane for all the right reasons – I banged through it, once you meet Alvie Knightly you won’t want to turn your back on her, no way!
Mad is a whole pile of fun, sexy, sassy, murderous and intensely funny at times, I sat there reading it giggling away to myself I’m fairly sure people...

I'm not by any means a prude, but this book felt like a cheap attempt at porn at times. The graphic descriptions and language not only become distracting but also make you hate the lead character - common as muck comes to mind. As an aside, some of the things described in these scenes are pretty...

I will be honest here, I don't know quite how I feel about this story. I finished it a few days ago and have had to try and form my thoughts in the time since, but I'm still not sure.
I feel that there was a lot of unnecessary stuff which, for me, wasn't vital to the story itself. The chapters det...

Alvina and Beth are estranged twins. Like chalk and cheese, their relationship has always been tumultuous. Now, reunited after years apart, it's about to become dea...
