Beautiful Revenge (A Good Wife, #1)
By: Sienna Blake
5 Stars

Sienna Blake has quickly become a one click author for me! Her stories are written so well that once you pick up one of her books, you can’t stop till you are done. They flow without a hitch and have the perfect mix of a great story, twist and turns and a few what the heck moments.

Beautiful Revenge is no exception! I picked this book up and didn’t put it down till I finished devouring the entire book. What a ride this one was!

I found Sienna with Dark Romeo series and was enamoured by her acute insight of heartbreak and yearning. Very adept at painting a picture with her words, her stories leave an indelible mark on my heart.
This story is as ancient and as modern as you'd like it to be
From the Magnificinet city of st.Petersburg to fog laden moors of English countryside, the story journeys from squalor to luxury , love to revenge and promises to bitterness in a sweep .
If there was a theme song for this very ambitious
Five years I have waited. Five years I have planned.
Five years I have worked towards this moment.
Now I am treading the first steps down destiny's path. The path that she set me on all those years ago.
Revenge. A dish best served cold.

I absolutely DEVOURED this book. I lost sleep over this book. I almost nixed my morning workout to continue reading this book (which is HUGE for me). I think I even dreamt about this book. I was a madwoman possessed as this book was just that captivating.

With A Beautiful Revenge, Sienna Blake gives readers an emotional and angst-fueled story that will stay with them long after finishing. Dimitri and Alena's tale was a tumultuous and heartbreaking journey that had me completely engrossed the whole way through. Blake's flawless writing style combined with a fantastic storyline and a unique premise made this story an unforgettable one.

I liked it. This is a very intense and dark romance, a well written tale of raw love and wrong decisions that can rip two soulmates apart. The characters are likeable, specially Alena. My only issue was the repetitive: I love you...I hate you..I love you... all over the book. But it was a good read and I liked the ending a lot.

Sienna Blake delivers…again. She gives us intense, complex characters is a horrible situation who make bad choices. Dimitri and Alena are young and desperately poor but so intensely in love. When they meet again five years later they struggle back and forth with the love that lingers and all the hate and hurt from the decisions made before. Every time one of them takes a step in the right direction, the other backs up.

Blake writes it all in a way that grabs the reader and takes them along for

There is nothing like a good revenge love story all that pent up emotion and hatred bubbling under the surface.
Sometimes love isn’t pretty especially when it all falls apart. The author did a good job of telling the story of young lovers ripped apart who meet years later under difficult circumstances.
A story of intrigue betrayal love and second chances.

Who doesn't love a good revenge story..especially love done wrong!?!
Picture young innocent love slaughtered by desperate want of a better life. Who is guilty? What is wrong?

It's a very Count of Monte Cristo like story both entertaining and intriguing.

I received an ARC from the Author in exchange of an honest review.

This is my first Sienna Blake book and I absolutely loved it! And I’m extremely excited to start reading the rest of her books
Her writing is so amazingly good ; she takes you deep into the book, and you don’t come up for air before the so called “END”.
This book was so dark and full of love, if that even makes sense.
In the cold streets of Russia, Alena and Dimitri lived in a cramped studio apartment that was never warm,

“Dimi?” Javier has paused at the door. “Don’t fight so hard for revenge that you lose everything you need to be happy.”

Revenge is Beautiful, revenge is sweet, and revenge could be a cruel cruel bitch.

Beautiful Revenge is a story about love, revenge, and second or perhaps third chances. This book will touch you, deep into your soul!

This book was so near perfection, it had just the right mix of pain, angst, love, and healing. I have a love/hate relationship with epilogues and this book is the perfect example of why. I can appreciate it for what it was, but I think it belied the intense emotion of the rest of the book.

There were moments in Beautiful Revenge where the writing was pure perfection. Where the prose was so beautifully illustrative I had to step back for a minute and just let myself revel in the elegance of those

I have read quite a few of Sienna's books by now and as you may know I was lucky to review her Dark Romeo Trilogy over the summer (highly recommended BTW!); and she has a way about her writing and characters digging into deep and often dark emotions.

I knew Beautiful Revenge was going to be mind blowing and I was certainly not disappointed!

This is Dimi and Alena's story!

It's tragic!!

It was pain and heartbreak from the beginning and my heart was broken along withDimi and Alena... I know it is bad,

When someone you love has left, sometimes the only thing you have left is REVENGE.

Love and hate combine to make the most intoxicating mixture giving this story the headiness it has. This story is deliciously captivating, exhilarating and full of foolhardiness.

Living in Russia in desolate conditions has both Dimitri and Alena romanticizing of visions of a better life. Alena is wide-eyed and impetuous and Dimitri is a loving and caring partner striving to give her all that he can. Alena makes a

It's no surprise to me that Beautiful Revenge is a huge WIN!

I have been enamored with Sienna Blake's writing since the Dark Romeo Series. She literally went from Who is Sienna Blake to One-Click, no questions.

Who doesn't love a good revenge that makes you so desperate but you're not really sure for what? You want the damaged party to get their revenge, but you know what that will mean for the other person and you really don't want them to miss out on what could be a happily ever

I was totally captivated by this heartbreaking passionate story of love, revenge and redemption.
What would you do out of desperation?
Would you put a price on your love?
The emotional and gripping story begins with poverty stricken Russian teens Dimitri and Alena. When a hustle to rob a rich woman named Isabelle goes horribly bad, she makes them a proposal Alena believes she can't refuse.

This was my first book from Sienna Blake and to say that I was impressed with what I read is a huge understatement. This book pulled me in from the beginning and did not let me go...even after it ended, they stayed with me.
Alena Ivanova and Dimitri Volkov were both young and on their own in Russia struggling to just barely survive. They both had big dreams of moving to America to make their lives better. These two were two halves of one soul, so in love that nothing could ever tear them apart.

I don’t even know where to start! I absolutely loved Beautiful Revenge! I devoured this book in one sitting. From the very first page I was pulled into the story by Sienna Blake’s writing style. She set the scene perfectly and I connected to Dimitri and Alena immediately.

Sienna is truly gifted at creating a story that leaves you with the most wonderful book hangover. One that will have you coming back for more. Beautiful Revenge is an engrossing read that will take you on an emotional roller coaster, which Sienna is well known to provide with her stories. It is very well written, flows fabulously, and has great characterization.

A Beautiful Revenge ( A Good Wife, #1) by Sienna Blake is a well-written tale of revenge that will have you devouring the story in one sitting. Sienna does a wonderful job with the evolution of the romance/revenge. One can see and relate to the conflict that Alina and Dimi go through, wavering between love and hate; both emotions so strong and at times interchangeable. Will they be able to overcome that hurt or has their actions and cruel words be too much to recover from. As this was my first ...more

This was certainly a very emotional read. However I thought it kinda ended sweeter than I thought it would/ had surmised from the blurb. Which is good because I also like nice endings. It was just more of a surprise than I thought I would get. I thought Blake did a great job with characters though. There was never a moment I questioned why we would want revenge on that person.

I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.

This book is absolutely wonderful!

This book tugged at my heart strings, and made me feel strong feelings for both Dimitri and Alena. I could feel the pain and indecision between the two, not without wanting to shout at them to get their senses about them and just be together.

I loved this book so much! If I could live in it, I would, and keep Javier as my friend forever and ever.

This book was brilliant, and I cannot wait for more from Sienna

This book was beautiful!
The first 15% was a bit slow, I usually want to get into the book right away so I was thinking about quitting on it. But I continued reading anyway in the hopes that it would become better and I’m so glad I did! It turned out to be an amazing love story, I even cried once, not gonna lie. It made me feel so much!

Definitely recommend this one :)

If I could rate this book higher I would. This was a beautiful story about Dimitri and Alena who came from nothing trying to better themselves and found words kept them apart. Sienna Blake writing kept me glued to the Kindle. Her writing was very descriptive and beautiful. I could tell she loved what she was writing because I felt the love from the main characters.
