Her Perfect Revenge
Revenge is sweet… or is it?
Christina Matteo had a humiliating prank pulled on her in high school by rich, party boy Bill Havenwood. It changed her whole life and she never forgot it—or him!
Older, wiser and tougher, she meets him again years later and decides to get even. She wants revenge and comes up with a perfect plan. But things don't go her way when she stupidly cra...more
You might wonder why, if I thought it was so bad,I actually finished the book. Well, the editing appears to have been done by an 8th grade student who is failing English, and the grammar errors were so frequent and obvious that it was fun to keep reading just to see what was going to show up next. ...more
I especially loved all the good and bad name calling they all used for each other like bastard, bozo, swine, creep, bum, rat bastard, maggot etc and the good ones used like, Darling, honey bunch, pumpkin pie, sweetie and lots more plus all the sexual tension was fun to read.
Also loved Bills jealousy and love for her, it was cute to read, especially when she had that fake boyfriend and he got all mad. funny!
I thought that the blurb for the story looked good, so much so that I downloaded it for 2.55 on to my Kindle.
That's 2.55 that I will never get back. Neither will I get back the time spent reading the damn thing.
If only I had bought the paper back copy, at least then I could have used it for something useful, such as hampster bedding.
The only nearly redeeming quality of the story was the hero's father - he was mildly, if not repetitivel ...more
I need to divide the book into two parts for my review.
THE FIRST THREE QUARTERS OF THE BOOK (I will call the "First Part"):
I was doubled over with laughter many, many times. I didn't want to stop reading. There are three people trying to deceive each other and/or keep secrets from each other. It makes for great conflict. And, what makes it great is that they each have good reasons for what they are doing. I am sympathetic to a ...more
Another thorn in my side was the fact that if the h ...more

The main character in this book was the butt of a practical joke in her teens, and, as a result, she forms a lifelong hate for the guy responsible. When she encounters the prankster around sixteen years later in life, she decides to enact a plan of revenge. She starts stalking him to find out what she can use to sink him. ...more
Revenge. Is it sweet or is it a dish best served cold? I loved the smart witty comments and humor in this book. I had a smile most of the time I was reading this book.
I totally understand the motive behind Christina and I wondered if I would do the same. She had a opportunity to humiliate Bill who humiliated her in high school. But by second chapter you began to sympathize with Bill. William is a overbearing father where as Bill is a ex-drunk who lives to spen ...more
Now, let's talk about...
What Bill did to her was sad but not enough for her to do what she did. Her actions were completely unjustified. This was for something that happened like a decade ago for Christ's sake. I disliked Christina fr ...more
I fell in love with this story from the get go.
I turned out to be a lot more than I was expecting to say the least. It was an easy, fun read that had relatable characters, a realistic plot and great, fun writing.
It did get a little clichéd at times but I thought it added to the story as a whole and sort of balanced out the times when it got a little more on the upsetting side…when things weren’t going the character’s way!

This book is a perfect example of the push and pull attraction between characters that I love so much.
Lets start with the main characters: Bill, a rich, arrogant playboy jerk who basks in his father's riches and will stop at nothing to remain there - even get married.
And Christina, a photojournalist who is hell bent on extracting her revenge on Bill, who humiliated her immensely during her freshman year which forced her i ...more
Boy and girl meet in high school when drunk boy pulls horrible prank on girl. Girl never forgets and ends up seeking revenge against boy 16 years later. Highly melodramatic hijinks ensue.
It was free on Amazon. I liked the hero, Bill and thought he was trying to sincerely change. The premise was decent and I usually enjoy fake engagement leads to real feelings stories. It had a very soapy quality to the story, which again, I have a weakness for.
The Bad and Annoying, or Annoying ...more
OK so the grammar and spelling could have been better (this is usually a huge turn off for me) BUT the story had me so gripped that, for once, I could forgive the author ...more

Got love a girl that not afraid of speak her mind and throw...stuff at men! LOL
Love Christina, the way she knows she's falling for Bill and keeps fighting it is just cute ans sweet.
There's no way not to like Bill... Hes caring and tender to Christina even when she's being so mean to him and calling him names.
Even though you're desperate for Christina to give in and for their first time together i was so not expecting the way it finally happened.
This book also spea ...more
16 years later, Christina transformed into a hot babe. Of course, as her luck would have it, she runs into her high school nightmare. Billy was still rich, handsome, and st ...more
This is not a laugh out loud romantic comedy. You actually need a laugh to get that moniker and let me tell you: I didn't laugh once.
The first thing that drove me crazy is that it just doesn't make sense. Oh sure I can buy a revenge story for the reasons outlined even I personally think it's kind of lame I do get it, but that's where it stops. Everything that follows is complete crap. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who does decide to read it, but let's just say I don't ...more
These group of characters put the FUN in Dysfunctional.
I love the banter and I love seeing things from William's point of view at times. ESPECIALLY in the beginning - the old coot! I like him and he is an amoral business greedy man. I am surprised how much I like him.
Christina I want to smack at times - how ever reading what happened to her at age 14 - I can't blame her for carrying a grudge and wanting revenge.
It has been a while since I had such an emotional attachment to a book. I laughed, cried, cheered and jeered over the characters. They made me happy and they made me angry. Anna Mara drug me through a roller coaster of emotions. The biggest negative to this book was that it ended. Once I picked up this book, I was unable to put it down. I can honestly say that I want more. Of these characters and her novels. I will be keeping her on my radar.
Don't pick it up if you aren't able ...more
