Quick summary
Jamie Kendrick was rescued from the hell known as Stanford Reddington's world by LCR. Dylan Savage was the operative that actually located and removed her the night of the rescue. That night, a permanent unspoken bond was created between the two of them, one he was determined to resist and one she was determined to seal.

What I enjoyed
I've looked forward to Jamie's story since she emerged in the series. Her history was both intriguing and horrific. Dylan also was appealing as I reca

Sweet Revenge was a good book but not great or as good as some of the other books by this author.

Jamie, McKenna's sister went through hell at the hand of a sadistic monster when LCR and Dylan rescued her. After months of therapy and being disappointed by the legal system Jamie is ready for payback and to bring that man and his organization down one way or another, so she gives LCR boss Noah a chance to help her.

Noah doesn't want her in danger but to placate her tells her he will get her trained,

"All intimacy is rare – that’s what makes it precious. And it involves the revelation of one’s self and the loving gaze upon another’s true self – that’s what makes it so damn hard. Intimacy requires honesty and kindness in almost equal measure, trust and trustworthiness, forgiveness and the capacity to be forgiven...It’s more than worth it – just don’t let them tell you it’s BLISS."

"Revenge is sweet and not fattening." Alfred Hitchcock

In a case of mistaken identity, Jamie Kendrick is abducted and abused by a maniac - then sold to another madman for his evil son's pleasure. Dylan Savage, an operative working for Last Chance Rescue serves as her knight-in-shining-armor when he rescues her from Stanford Reddington's grip. Because of his wealth and influential associates, Reddington remains free of all charges. Now Jamie wants revenge for what was done to her, but even more im

Quickie review:

Jamie's initial thoughts about Dylan:
How could one man be so gorgeously handsome, so wonderfully heroic, so seemingly kind, but so incredibly obnoxious, rude and, well, just generally an asshole?

That's Dylan! He has incredible moments of sweetness towards Jamie followed by that damn "hero thinking" - you know how they are - thinking he wasn't good enough for Jamie, she could do so much better than him, and deciding that staying away from her is what's best...for her. I wanted to h

Another great addition. Though I haven't been floored by any LCR books, I've got to say that at this point, I'm very impressed. Each book has stood on its own and each couple is firmly entrenched into my romantic suspense library. (The one in my head) I feel comfortable in Last Chance Rescue world, and it's been nice getting to know all of those involved in the organization.

This one's notable difference was its lack of gruesome rape/molestation. The idea was there, and I knew that the bad guy ha
The eighth book in the Last Chance Rescue series. I love Christy Reece but this one didn't quite stand up to her usual standards in my opinion. The beginning was slow and it was hard for me to keep reading at times. Thankfully, it sped up about halfway in and I was able to continue and finish it.

Spunky Badass's!

Jaime Kendrick,was one of the victims  in "Last Chance"  she was mistaken for another women when she was abducted. When the perverted SOB bastard Hughes realizes she's not the woman he's looking for, he sells Jaime to another pervert, Mr. Reddington. Reddington, gives Jaime to his sick and twisted Son, Lance as his new sex toy slave for him and his friends to enjoy. *shivers with disgust*

Last Chance Rescue goes on an op to find Jaime Kendrick. Dylan Savage is one of the operators
Look at that cover. Mmm, mmm, mmm, good! I love those colors together! HAHA I bet you thought I was going to say something else.....

I am sooo excited to start this book tonight! I hear it's the best in the series so far.....

This author can do no wrong in my eyes. It's hard for me to choose which book has been the best so far. My heart will always have Eden and Jordan in the number one spot, but this book is very close to that spot. It was the most heart wrenching book of the series as of yet. I

This was a hard one for me to get through. It was a fast read but not for good reasons, I mainly just wanted to get it over with instead of enjoying each page and development. We met Jamie in her sister's, McKenna's book, when she was mistaken for her and kidnapped and tortured then sold. I had high hopes for Jamie and Dylan's book, but alas, it was kind of a letdown. I empathize for the both of them individually, how horrible their childhoods were, but together as adults, they were frustrating ...more
