Blurb: Revenge is sweet...

Self-made billionaire Alex Damon wants his pound of flesh from the people who ripped his family apart. When he discovers his enemies’ daughter is working at his company — and most likely spying for them — he decides to start his revenge by seducing her.

Natalie Hall is stunned at the personal interest from the CEO of her company. Vulnerable, with an already bruised heart, she wants to avoid any involvement — but she can’t deny the desire he arouses in her.


...but love is sweeter…

What should’ve been a straightforward eye-for-an-eye starts to unravel as Natalie’s unflinching loyalty and kindness begin to thaw Alex’s cold intent. But caring for her is unthinkable…since he plans to use everything in his power to ruin her family and everyone else she holds dear.

Review: “Sam,” you may be wondering. “Why does your title say Vengeful in Love but the picture you posted say The Billionaire’s Revenge?” That, my fellow book dragons, is an excellent question. This book, if you were to go to the Goodreads page linked above, has four different titles and four different covers. Vengeful in Love is how I have it written in my book journal, and that’s how I’m going to refer to it here. Now that I have that out of the way, on to the review!

Not really sure how I feel about this. It kind of felt like insta-love, but there were at least a week between some meetings? They didn’t talk during those weeks though, so I say it qualifies for insta-love. Now, I really enjoyed the slow moments, where they were just talking and getting to know each other, far more than the heated moments. I don’t know, I guess I’m just a slow burn person.

Case in point; They had spoken twice and there was a heated kiss. I didn’t like it. It seemed forced and I wish they had at least had some more tension before that.

This book was alright, it didn’t leave any lasting impression on me and I knew the villain before the reveal, it was pretty obvious and kind of clumsy?

There was enough here in the story that I wasn’t bored or had any moment that I felt like I was forcing myself to keep going. I had actually put it down for about four days and still picked it back up. Now, on that note, I wasn’t feeling the urge to get back to it. It was more of the mindset of ‘Alright, let’s finish this book and see what happens.’ I wasn’t really thinking about it when I wasn’t reading it. I think that might have something to do with already knowing the overall plot. Billionaire seduces woman to get revenge, she falls in love, he falls in love, she finds out and walks out, he wins her back. There was enough subplot in there to keep me at least interested enough to finish the book.

I am a little interested in the next book because the author gave a little tidbit at who the next couple would be and I kind of do want to see their story since I did like those characters in this first book. Kind of curious to see if another characters gets a book as well.

All-in-all, it was an alright read, would I go back? Hmm, maybe? I’m not in love with it.

Thank you for reading my review.
