Soap opera crazy, which was what I wanted...but a little too disjointed.

This is my favourite book by Jennie.
The end scene alone was enough to make this book a classic. It's a tale of revenge gone wrong and right at the same time.
Eve was strong determined and on a mission when she fall pregnant and losses her memory.
Talos wants revenge for the secrets she has told his enemy. He finds out she is pregnant and runs to get her at his mercy and under his control. So of course he forces her to marry him.
I just love the whole thing.
Also, the fact that they want to have

WTF??? I picked this up at the library and sucked it down in a couple of hours. Really liked it. Imagine my surprise to find that I had DNF'd this one a while ago. Here is my original review:

too much betrayal and revenge.

So... what's different? I must have been in the mood for it I guess. Big shrug here.

So my review this time around is:

I liked the amnesia bit here. I am a sucker for amnesia stories in general and this one was well done. I loved how she was so changed from her previous personalit

This is full on soap opera, and Talos is very unlikeable for most of the book. You feel sorry for Eve, but then you hear about Eve didn't used to be very nice, so you don't know what to think. But it's complicated. Very complicated. I like that the roles flip flop, and I think this is an excellent example of the amnesia theme well done. Also it has the theme of the character who was not liked at all in their previous incarnation, but now they are different after their accident/amnesia.

I abandoned this but then it's probably coz I wasn't in the mood for it. So, I am re-reading it now cause all my friends loved it and because it was written by the flawless Jennie Lucas!

After re-reading this I can say this is the best Jennie Lucas book ever! The angst was delicious, both hero and heroine were three-dimensional characters with depth and complex emotions. The final chapters broke my heart. I couldn't believe Eve regained her memory and left Talos while carrying his child. And when

Wow - I love revenge stories and this is like a double helix of revenge. You rarely get such plot twists in an HP, but this one has it. It's chock full of tropes, but it felt original. There's plenty of emotion, but it's memorable for its plot. Quite a ride.

Awwww I loved loved loved this book!!

Surprising as it started out as a regular h with amnesia trope added to a grind-my-teeth-n-act-loving hero with an I-will-teach-this-bitch-a-lesson agenda. She’s pregnant and the H has reasons for revenge but he thinks he must marry her to get his child and teach her a lesson in a better way. Well it goes on in an eyeroller-been–there-read-it-umpteen-times way till past midway, and then the story has a completely stunning revelation and turn.

Great twist! Loved the Hero POV, this is a really refreshing take on old revenge/amnesia tropes. Nice to see a Hero who thinks he knows it all actually come to grips with the upending of the facts as he knows them as well as his notions of justice. Finally, a 25 year old virgin who had a specific, consuming reason to maintain her virginity. Lost a star when hero reflects on the women before and "since" heroine. Given that they have been apart for 3 months, and he was supposedly devastated by her ...more

I'm sick to death of the "you're carrying my child, you must marry me!" romance trope, but adding in amnesia and revenge definitely makes it more fun. I also enjoyed the fact that, after starting with echoes of several other books, this one took a different and (to me) unexpected turn.

This is an revenge story with second chance at love.Absolutely enjoyed each second of the book.Talos-Eve both are strong personalities and are bend on revenge on each other,Eve is plotting her revenge for 11 years and Talos for 3 months but cause of the Eve's accident which leads to amnesia and which brings out the real Eve who is warm caring loving selfless person,to the world she has presented that she is cold selfish shallow woman but Talos gets to know the real Eve and when it seems the happ ...more

This was a fun, different take on the revenge and blackmail themes. It's like JL threw together 2 people who'd obviously been born and bred in HPLandia and had been victims of vengeance and betrayal since birth and had continued the abusive HP cycle of vengeance into the next generation. It's like a public service announcement for those living in Hqns on breaking the sad cycle of revenge. Bonus: with amnesia!!

It was certainly emotionally overwrought and tropey, but enjoyable. I won't spoil all t

★★★★☆ I’m not much for “revenge” plots, and not into too much angst. However, I love a good amnesia theme. This one held my attention through-out – maybe because I was in the mood for a little angst. That, and the Hero being an ass-hat more than once, but realizing the error of his ways quite a while before the end. Plus this one has a nice little twist. Ate it up in one day.

Talos has finally run virgin villainess Eve to ground in London, and is looking forward to exacting his long-overdue revenge. Oh, that Eve, she was the epitome of evil. She and her rich friends ravaged hotel rooms and led lives that defined the worst in excess and pleasure-seeking. Eve was hard as diamond. She had the beauty of a goddess and she flaunted her beauty in the tiniest of tiny clothes. Any man who saw her was compelled to gaze upon her in helpless awe. How was such a creature a virgin ...more

Just one thing bugged me: how in the world does the title fit the story?

It starts with revenge and hatred all directed at Talos' ex-lover, Eve, because she betrayed him.
The frustration, anger and lust Talos feels for Eve Craig literally leaps off through the pages penned by Jennie Lucas.

Hmm, shades of Body Heat and mucho film noir shadiness.

Talos, the H, finds out that his mistress, Eve, she who bit of the apple and betrayed all men, (subtle reference) is suffering from amnesia much to his glee. He is ready to exact his revenge for what he sees as the h's betrayal of her selling his business secrets. Much to Talos' dismay she really does have amnesia so he has to play the long con.

Talos struggles with his desire for Eve against his need for revenge. No spoilers here, but what

It’s so hard to give a review on this book, without giving away the story. It was filled with twist and turns, romance and suspense, love, and revenge. If you read it all, you will find a beautiful love story! In the beginning I didn't care for Talos, but in the end he won me over.

Sample from chapter 5
For the rest of the day, they explored the charms of Venice, from walking beneath the medieval overhangs of the Calle del Paradiso to sharing lunch on the wide outdoor terrace of the Hotel Ciprian

One of a few (well, mebbe more than a few) harlequin presents that did not make me want to smack the hero or the heroine till kingdom come. Great hero, flawed but quickly works his way to redemption.
Cute heroine. you totally understand her motivations once you get the story of her past. cute, sappy ending.

I liked it a good deal.

The book begins well and has a very interesting story behind it. It is more complicated than I thought. Both hero and heroine wanted revenge. Talos refused to call it revenge, instead he named it justice. He had spent great months with Eve before she ran away from him without leaving any sign that she would come back. Talos couldn't sleep and eat well since then. He plans to track her down. When he finally found Eve, he wants nothing but revenge justice. But then he finds out that Eve is pregnan ...more

How I love reading this type of story. Misunderstanding, marriage for revenge and pregnant heroine! Uuuugh! I. Just. Love it!

Talos's Greek billionaire who happen to be in love with Eve. But Eve has her own plan. She left Talos for some reason and after few months, she's back. Only with no memory after minor accident. Talos determined to have his revenge after she left him out of blue but after a while, love is on its way..

I like the angst, of course. And when Eve find out about what she did, I

First I was like ,"Oh crap, here's another douche bag hero!' (ala Sensible Housekeeper, Scandalously pregnant) With every prejudice in my mind, I continued to read and I actually ended up liking it. Yes he does behave like a jerk but all the while, there's all this angst in the bg about how he'll never let her hurt him again and all that, and I was relieved because this guy WAS in love with the girl, and his angst was over the fact that he thought she had betrayed him, and not because he was a s ...more

This was my first amnesia trope and it didn't scare me off of future books with the same theme.

At times the hero was really ugly towards the heroine. Once the backstory was revealed, his attitude was completely understandable. I liked in the end that all was not as it seemed and the heroine had a reason for her actions as well.

In the end this was a lovely story about forgiveness and 2nd chances. The heroine also has backbone in this story which was a refreshing change.

Like any Harlequin book, it's predictable. You have your Hero and Heroine, you have their troubles, and then they find back to each other for a happily ever after. :D

This wasn't your run of the mill Greek Tycoon story. It was more about the characters and their story, than about his incredible wealth.

A quick read, as always, and a sweet story.

Eve finds herself with no memory and pregnant to a man dark sexy billionaire how is very vague with answers to her questions. Both out for revenge against each other until a car accident and baby bring them together. This book has every heartbreak, lost, revenge, romance, passion, marriage and future promise. Really enjoyed it.

my only problem with this book was the way in which Eve's memories come back immediately after making love, it was too unrealistic.

It was just so... papercut story. It could've been better if the writer knew how to bring out some real emotion. I was so bored in the end.

Jennie Lucas had a tragic beginning for any would-be writer: a very happy childhood. Her parents owned a bookstore, and she grew up surrounded by books, dreaming about faraway lands. Her mother read aloud to her in French when she was little; when she was ten, her father secretly paid her a dollar for every classic novel (Jane Eyre, War and Peace) that she read. As a chubby teenager, Jennie covere ...more
