Initially, I took a peek @ the last few pages & put it on hold cuz it didn't seem that appetizing but boy was I wrong. Anotha good 1. Endearing hero, silly twit of a heroine, eyebrows-raising plot based on a drug-dealing, mentally unhinged, stalkerazzi relative being locked up in Pityville. All ingredients make a riveting read. SC ain't exactly spring chicken anymore & I cherish every tasty concoction, good or bad. What stood out was that in an age where skyping, texting, emailing & ...more
This started out great, a rare revenge romance in which the heroine is the one out for blood. Tarn sets out to seduce and humiliate Caz, to avenge the foster sister he used and discarded. Of course, she winds up in love with him too... but as we see as the book begins, she carries through with her plan anyway.

It quickly becomes clear that Tarn's sister is a liar and that she is an idiot, which didn't really bother me at first, since aren't revenge plots inherently pretty stupid? And Craven wrot
I love the revenge trope… and I love Sara Craven books. This book only needed pages and I was pretty sure I would like it! Add in the fact that this is a reverse revenge plot (heroine wanting revenge against the hero) makes it even better. What a book this is.

The prologue being ‘now’ and the story then recapping what had happened is a neat little trick to really hook you in right from the start.

Sara Craven weaves a tale that is full of emotion, mystery, passion and betrayal. The POV is a little
This novel was pretty screwed up and the whole conflict was based on a girls 'facts' when they weren't facts at all, the girl has just simply lost her mind and became delusional. I couldn't believe the heroine could be so smart but such a fool. I felt horribly bad for the hero because he went through things he didn't deserve at all. The book kind of annoyed me and the ending was sickly sweet.
This book was rather dull and boring.

Tarn is an independent British girl living and working in New York. She was fostered by her aunt and uncle, originally because they thought they couldn't have children of their own. Then along came their golden daughter. Uncle continued to love and support Tarn so after his death, Tarn felt that she was responsible for her aunt and cousin. Her cousin tries to commit suicide because she alleges that her rich fiance Caz dumped her. Cousin is currently hospitali

it was OK,rather predictable.
I hate it when a book starts with the end. I managed to wade my way through the first three chapters or so and then decided to cut my losses and turn to the last chapter. Boring in the extreme. My apologies to the author, but she has done much better.

I'm not sure what to make of this book. It reads like a greek tragedy. melodrama, angst and a chorus of voices acting as the female protagonist's conscience. I will need to process the book for a bit longer before I write more.
really bad storyline. its like trying to get the readers emotional but failing miserably.
I gave up after about 50 pages. And I really struggled to get that far.
