The Kouros Marriage Revenge by Abby Green has all of those things.

Greek shipping billionaire Alexandros Kouros and Kallie Demarchis had been friends until the night that he believed she had betrayed him, causing his world to implode.

Idk something was off here.
The usual revenge drama with an enforced moc. Of course he only wanted revenge sex and the marriage was only for some will business. Very timely and convenient! *eyeroll*

The h was too emotionally labile and kept going off the rails too often. Not my idea of a good angst. I prefer them to either lash out some or remain stoic in the face of excessive ass-hattery.

The H was as cold and unrelenting as the tundra. I don’t like all the sex in the book to happen when the mcs/

This revenge HP didn't really do it for me. Honestly, it just wasn't crazy enough. For one thing, the hero actually had reason for being angry with the heroine. She was innocent, of course, but there was some damning evidence against her. And she, out of loyalty to her shrewish cousin, didn't tell him the full truth. That kind of took away that self-righteous sense of pleasure I get when the H finds out how wrooooong he was.

I like/want a revenge novel to be full of wtf'ery. For whatever bizarre

The Kouros Marriage Revenge will have you sitting on the edge of your seat with a box of tissues burning the midnight oil. You absolutely will not want to put this book down until you have finished this powerful and moving journey in forgiveness and love.

It’s seven years later and Alexandros Kurous and Kallie Demarchis run into each other at a party in Paris. At first, he does not recognize Kallie but is definitely attracted to her in ways no other woman has touched him. When he realizes who she

Abby Green really has a formula going, but it's a formula I happen to like -- H thinks h has done something awful, but wants her and decides to "get revenge" and have her. But H can't help feeling tenderly toward h, and also something happens to h that makes H take care of her at some point. Then all is disclosed and there's a HEA. Regardless of the formula, I like the emotion and angst, and how you can see that the H can't help but care for the h, even when he thinks badly of her.

It's been a while since the last time I've read a book from Ms. Abby Green and as usual I enjoyed it despite it's overly used plot!

I thought this was well done. Some of the plot did not seem plausible, and at times I think the heroine was a bit too much of a pushover...but all in all a fun read by Abby Green.

I didn't like any part of this story at all. At first it looked promising, but as per the title it's all about revenge. The redemption wasn't enough, Kallie has this misplaced loyalty and Alexandros took a long time before figuring everything out.

I thought somewhere along the way they would get to some kind of real truce, yes sometimes, but everything is frigid between them. Kallie's always wary of him, the author emphasized her discomfort around him and even when they're starting to feel comfor

Alexandro's grandfather stated in his will that Alexandro had to marry within six months to receive his share of Kouros Shipping. It also stated if Alexandro did not marry, the share would be giving to the competition.
7 years ago, Kallie was 17, and had a crush on Alexando. She drank for the very first time, and kissed him. he was engaged to get married, and that very kiss broke apart his engagement. He has carried around resentment towards Kallie for the past 7 years. That resentment turned in

I was so bored! This was my first time reading this author's writing which does not bode well for the future. The prose and story execution lacked excitement. Neither protagonists were that compelling either: Kallie appeared weak, and Alex was an unexciting hero. They also talked a lot about what had happened in the past or what would happen in the future. The more telling-than-showing type of dialogue. Yawn. Alex's repeated threats became comical. Sadly, even the sex scenes lacked excitement. T ...more

When shipping magnate Alexandros Kouros needs a convenient wife he has workaholic Kallie Demarchis in his sights and he refuses to take No for an answer.

Seven years ago Kallie was the sole reason he lost a very important merger and although he's buried the fury he felt at the time when she betrayed him as only a close family friend can betray him he's completely floored when he spots her across the room. She is absolutely stunning and Alexandros has no doubt he will enjoy the marriage in the tra

O My Gosh ..... Absolutely loved this book. Read it an hour and a half. Could not put it down. The hero was AWESOME !!!!!!! The heroine was so very very sweet. They made such a beautiful couple.

Alex and Kallie have known each other forever.... Kallie accidentally ruins his engagement and business merger when she is just 17 years of age. She has always had a crush on Alex, and her cousin urges her to let Alex know of her feelings for him. Unbeknown to Kallie, her cousin has a hidden agenda. Alex

The 2 run into each other 7 years later.. They are both different people.. And he is still angry when his plot for revenge sets in.. Nothing will be the same..

If you're gut tells you not to confess to a crush listen to it, sometimes your BFF can be a backstabbing bitch
Although I loved that through getting to reek now each other they realized there was still love there

Finished this in 1 sitting.. Another good story from AG.
Glad that the h isn't the usual doormat.
Always love HP stories to have the epilogue... and love the HEA.

Bastante entretenido... con una trama un poco estándar de griegos.. aún así, la temática estuvo entretenida, buenos diálogos. :)
