Mindy Lou's Book Review
So far this is the book that really had me on the edge, and that's saying something. The first two books were not a walk in the park. I'm actually really glad the author is taking her time telling Edward and Celia's story. These characters are so complex. We need to see their story fleshed out and not rushed.

Both Edward and Celia have a long journey to go from where they were when they first met to what I'm hoping to be their happily ever after. That takes time and we need to see their growth t

Book #3!

It's been a long while since book #2 and I forgot everything! LOL!
Damn #Bookalzheimers! But I re-read the last pages and my review of the 2nd book and now I'm back on track!

Book #3 starts with Celia and Edward arriving back in London after the Island. To finally move into the family home with Edward's sister and nephew as real married people! Not like the pretend revenge weirdos from book #1. LOL!

But revenge is still on their agenda - only now they'll be working together to make all the

Edward Fasbender is a wealthy, powerful man who’d built his own media empire. He was a ruthless, complicated man who thrived on control, and kept a list of who had wronged him and his family. He married a woman named Celia fueled by his need for vengeance. He tried to resist the pull between them, but no longer wanted to keep her at a distance. As they grew closer over time, he realized she was an important part of his life. He loved her sauci

An intricately woven and deliciously decadent plot! Laurelin Paige’s master storytelling skills shine in this installment of Slay. It’s a phenomenal story.

Here’s what I loved:
I was most impressed by the intricately woven plot and character development. There is so much to these two. So much underlying pain and history to discover. The author manages the feat superbly. I was hanging on the edge of my seat to see what would be uncovered next.
Edward and Celia are perfect for one another. He’s ever

I just can’t get enough of Edward and Celia. Their story is so entertaining and filled with so much heat and twists. I didn’t think Laurelin Paige could top the previous two books in the Slay series but she definitely did with Revenge. Here I got a deeper insight into Edward and Celia’s past. Especially Edward’s past was fascinating. How he became the man he is and why he behaves the way he does towards Celia. He wants to care for her. Physically and emotionally.

Oh, Edward Fasbender. You have made me not like you, you've made me curious about you, you've made me suspicious, and you've made me absolutely swoon. I have waited for this moment--for you to seek and exact your revenge. Thank you, Laurelin Paige, for delivering perfection.

Edward loves Celia, and the way he chooses to show her how much he loves her is by convincing her she needs to sanction his retaliation against her uncle and the men who wronged her. Throughout the first two books of this qu

AHHH!! Revenge: (Slay Quartet Book 3) just obliterated me!!! Similar to books 1 and 2, Rivalry and Ruin, Revenge was a psychological feast for the senses!! It was a game of cat and mouse and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I enjoyed Edward and Celia's chemistry and how addicted they were to each other! Paige did a phenomenal job highlighting the character development and emotional depth in this story! What a masterpiece!!

I'm happy i didn't start this series earlier because i would've gone mad.

So book three starts right where book two ended. Celia is back to London as Edward's wife, the wife he loves. Now is time for REVENGE.

with every book i fell more and more in love with Celia, she really is a phenomenal character.

The impossible has happened.
I've officially fallen head over heels in love with Edward Fasbender.

I truly did not think this would happen considering I absolutely loathed him in Rivalry, and then I grew to only slightly like him after reading Ruin. Devouring Revenge made me see a different side to him though - one where he completely stole my heart with his displays of affection, his devotion to those he loves, and his vulnerabilities that had me hugging my Kindle to my chest and just soaking in

Oh wow! My stomach is in knots. I’ve felt sick! I’ve felt enraged. I’ve felt disgusted but this book is so good.

Laurelin Paige has stirred so many emotions in me that I don’t know what to do with myself. I can’t make bread this time and take it out on the dough, I haven’t got any bread flour.

Book number 3 in the series is a tough read. I could not put it down though. Couldn’t look away. We’ve had a raging storm in the UK today, I feel like I’ve been tossed about by the wind. I’ve been in full hi

Lauralin Paige has written a character that I completely hated more than all villains I've read in all other books combined. Her name was Celia Werner. Notice the past tense 'was' in the previous sentence. Celia, along with her husband Edward, have become my favorite Paige power couple. And I never thought anyone would upset the #1 power couple of Hudson and Alayna.

Revenge is the third book in the Slay series. Rising will be the fourth and final book in the series and I can't wait for the next

I have terrible bookzheimer's, and it has been a while since book 2 in this series, so me being me, I had no idea what I was diving into.

However, once I started reading, things started to fall into place in my brain and I slowly remembered things.

Now, it did take me about 20% to really get into this story, however once it did, I was all in.

Celia and Edward's relationship has changed since the island, and for me I liked where things were going.

"He owned me completely, and it was hard to fathom anything I wouldn’t do for my ruthless devil."

The Slay Quartet only gets better with each new book. I am so obsessed with Edward and Celia. They are honestly becoming my favorite Laurelin Paige couple to date! Slay Revenge offered everything the title promised it would. This installment had me on the edge of my seat from the first page until the last.

Do inner wounds heal if one partakes in revenge? Will you be able to move on? Will you be able to start afresh? Or would the wound fester and cause harm? These questions rake my brain while reading Revenge by Laurelin Paige. A very complex read that plunged me into a gritty and decadent romance. Laurelin Paige takes you down into a brilliant dark romance that sweeps you away. Revenge tantalized my inner dark soul with a hard hitting and explosive literary pleasure. Absolutely trilling.

Can a book be better than its predecessors? This series has proven that and with honours.

The third in a series of four and it is a masterpiece of psychological warfare, character evolution, depth of emotion, and a love that defies labels.

Celia and Edward deserve a genre of their own.

I felt absorbed like by a black hole of irresistible attraction and intensity. Now there is passion and true commitment in their tumultuous relationship, but the struggle and the challenges are far from settled.

This is instalment three and as the storyline developed and Celia’s back story emerged, I found myself warming to her. Paige does well to turn Celia’s character around as she is remarkably unlikeable at the start. The same can also be said about Edward. We delve into his backstory and come to understand why he behaves in the way he does more in this instalment.

But, full disclosure, I had to put this book down midway through and take a break. I think my break from this book may last unti

Okay, so here’s the kicker about attempting to review this journey at this stage (book 3 of 4) … it is impossible. There is nothing that I can tell you right now that won’t be a spoiler for what has happened, what is happening and/or what might happen in the future so …… but, I can still share:
Celia is still slaying it and I love her and want to have her babies!
Edward is still weirdly fascinating.

This third installment in the Slay Quartet is everything I hoped it would be and more. We’ve learned so much about Celia in the first two books that I was literally CRAVING more from Edward. Laurelin Paige delivered immensely. Revenge is not just about planning and retribution, it’s an entire roller coaster ride of feeling that deep need to make one pay and what that can do to you as a person.

The emotional bond that was woven between Edward and Celia transcends beyond a mere marriage. As a read

Edward Fassbender is every single thing I want in a hot fractured hero digging and clawing for redemption. Celia is the broken soul he loves to torture and heal, or is she? Celia is a force. Read on, or just one click now. Revenge is RIPE and fantastic, but most of all, it's a complete book, a blend of psychological thriller and erotic romance you rarely see.

I seriously cannot with Laurelin Paige. Her sheer talent and storytelling ability are so inspiring, and Revenge proves yet again why she’s one of my favorite authors.

Revenge is the third book in the Slay Quartet, so if you haven’t read Rivalry and Ruin, make sure you read those first before diving into this one.

I was sucked into the story from the first page. I love that Celia and Edward are working together now because they’re stronger as a duo, and just like the title implies, revenge is what

Wow. Wow. Wow. Revenge was a sexy, riveting, and suspenseful third installment in the Slay Quartet, and has been my favorite of the series so far. A lot transpired in Revenge, and I was captivated from beginning to end.

I once again loved Laurelin Paige’s writing style, and that she finally gave readers more chapters from Edward’s perspective. I loved delving deeper into his character and discovering what motivated him to be the man he is today. Some of the questions I had fr

REVENGE by Laurelin Paige is book Three in the Slay Quartet Series. This continues the story of Celia Werner and Edward Fasbender, so you should read the previous book "Slay: Rivalry" and "Ruin" first before starting this one. With this book we have them solid in marriage but with the taste of revenge for the past issues to seek justice. This series is so good you just can't get enough.

I struggled with this series. I LOVED book one. Loved. Book 2 had so many spots that dragged, and then the end gripped me. Revenge is more of the same.

There are parts of this book that owned me, parts that were slow, and parts that were hard for me to read. What hasn't changed is that I still very much enjoy the writing of Laurelin Paige in terms of her style of writing.

Overall the characters are enjoyable as well. I get the motivation behind the hero's actions, and

So many emotions, so much angst with this book! Laurelin delivers a gut punch that will leave you in knots. I had so much hope for Edward after book 2 and even though he seems to really want to give his marriage a shot, he drives me a bit batty. He can be really hot and the cold with Celia and it's hard to tell his intentions at times. I love how she stands up to him and doesn't let him totally dominate her. There are still so many secrets that I am honestly not sure how their marriage will sust ...more
