Amazing read.

Vengeful payback was hands down my favorite so far! Seth and Jane really did a 360, this is something I was really hoping for.

The story itself was thrilling, unpredictable, and enjoyable. Without giving too much away there are new charming little characters.

I enjoyed the other books in the series and the writing was well done. After reading this book I think the author really let loose, because it was just amazing. Whatever it is you are doing please cont

Brilliant book! Brilliant series!!

The unease I felt reading the first book returned the deeper I delved into this one. The twists intensified and the dread that Seth, Jane and the other characters would revert to their old, gruesome ways was real.
The ending was brilliant and I honestly didn't want to finish reading. Highly recommended!

Edie Baylis has a unique way of dragging you into this series, I've not done across many authors who show the characters at they're extreme worst, but make you love them regardless.
Seth & Jane are toxic as a couple, but the passion they have for each other overrides all the dark sides & they are unstoppable together.
Read all 3 book in succession. Glad I persevered with Book 1 as they only got better

Fantastic Read

Wow! Edie Baylis sure know how to keep her readers engrossed as she gradually pulls them into the story. And what a story! Love, sex, prostitutes, murders, revenge; mix them together---the way Edie Baylis did----and you get a fantastical dark gritty crime thriller.
I had a problem with putting this book down until I'd finished reading it.
Downside: the story coming to an end. Well worth 5 stars +

Obsession and revenge makes for a thrilling tale

This story has plenty of suspense and drama, as well as many shady people that inhabit Edie Baylis's world of drugs and crime. Life is going beautifully for both Seth and Jane, becoming more reputable citizens due to running their club but as the light shines brightly on them, dark figures from their not so distant past lurk nearby, hatching out plans to bring the couple to their knees. There's plenty of plotting and scheming as Digger and Eli

Most of your favourite (and not so favourite) characters are back. This book has a number of different parts to the story and you are hooked wondering how and when they are all going to collide. The story is well thought out and the characters have moved on without actually changing.

This book grabs you and won’t let go. You find yourself dreading something bad happening to some characters and hoping it does to others. I found myself celebrating when one character dies because I was e

“Vengeful Payback” is the third book in the series and it certainly didn’t disappoint! I love a good dark, gritty read, and this was right up my alley. Jane and Seth finally had a chance to settle down and enjoy their family life and running a business; the only thing that was missing from an idyllic life was their daughter Grace, whom they still couldn’t locate. Only, old foes are also after the child and the intrigue that they’re spinning soon wreaks true havoc in everyone’s life.

What can I say. This series has improved with each book. Again, there’s a lot of POV changes - all clearly marked and a lot of people to get around. However, having met most in previous books, it’s a lot easier to follow.
I found this to be the strongest plot. Seth and Jane have fought to get where they are and I have loved following their story. It’s still dark and holds the suspension you expect. And more people from their past wantto destroy the world they have built up. Do they get a happy e

Reading has always been one of Edie's great passions and is a self-confessed book hoarder. Music and the love of all things interesting and unique are other favou
