The Revenge Game
By: Alice Gaines

*REVIEW* 🌟🌟🌟
The Revenge Game is really a second chance romance story. Adam and Nicole were together ten years ago. Circumstances have brought them back together. Both are coping with hurt from their shared past, but, despite this, it's still insta love/lust for these two. I'm honestly tired of reading this hello and ten minutes later we're in bed scenario. Seriously, where is the originality or the aspect of reality? This is an okay read, but I wouldn't read it a

This is the first book from this author that I have read. It was an ok read for me. This was a second chance/enemies to lovers’ romance. Adam and Nicole were in love 10 years ago but it wasn’t meant to be. He blames both Nicole and her father for not getting the girl. He plots his revenge by planning to take her father’s hotel. Once her father dies, he plans on taking the hotel from Nicole herself. The chemistry between the characters was very noticeable. Even after 10 years apart, they didn’t n ...more

This is more like a second chance romance than an enemies to lovers romance. Only one character really has anger and that is Adam. Nicole mainly feels hurt. This was just an okay story for me. I have no problem with sex being in the stories I read, but this was just way too much and way too soon. I get that this is a shorter story, but the two main characters haven't seen each other in ten years and the first time they do that have sex? And in the second chapter? It just wasn't believable for me ...more

The Revenge Game by Alice Gaines a four-star read that will turn you around. This had all the makings of a five-star read but just missed the boat a tiny bit at the steamy bits and as there were plenty this is why I have it four-stars. I liked Nicole Westmore, she was a driven young woman that would surprise you with her depth, and Adam Morrow was a driven man, he was wronged and is doing everything in his power to get it right again. That part I liked, and the boat was fun, its nice to see it t ...more

Four and a half stars

The Revenge Game is the first in Alice Gaines's Players' Pact series, about a group of men who vow to play the field rather than have their hearts broken and lives destroyed by the predatory women who stalk them ;)

Adam Morrow is the leader of the pack. A self-made wealthy man, he now owns a hotel chain and is determined to destroy the Westmore conglomerate, now headed by Nicole Westmore. His first love. The one who trampled on his heart.

The Revenge Game is billed as an enemies to lovers story but I feel it is more of a second chance romance. Adam and Nicole we boyfriend and girlfriend ten years ago. Things did not work out because Adam was deemed as not good enough by Nicole's father. Adam vowed revenge against her father. First order of business, take her father's hotel, then his empire. Things were progressing until the father dies and Nicole is left in charge. She confronts him about his under handed tactics and w

Adam wants revenge but can he follow through with it?

Nicole Westmore had fallen in love with Adam Morrow ten years before when he worked for her father for the summer while he was getting his MBA but when her father found out they had fallen in love, he was fired immediately. Adam decided to best her father at his own game and started up his own high end hotel company with a secret investor. His final planned revenge was taking over Westmore Hotels even though her father had died and she now ran

This second chance romance was okay, but not great. There was a lack of dimension in both characters and the plot, while interesting, seemed a bit too bogged down. Adam and Nicole, our main characters, could have used a bit more substance and maybe a little less time spent in the bedroom.
Yup, there’s a lot of sex in this book, while isn’t a problem in general. But I wish they’d gotten to know each other a little better after 10 years apart...and that they had more to their relationship other tha

10 years back Alex and Nicole were in love with each other, but didn’t get their HEA and Alex blames Nicole and her dad for it, and plans his revenge, taking over her dads hotels.
Present day, Nicole is incharge of the Westmore Hotels after her fathers death, and plans to confront Alex and appeal to his sense of fairness.
Their chemistry is still off the charts, and Alex’s attempt to have a one night stand with Nicole to work her out of his system backfires badly.

One of my favorite tropes, man who thinks he's been wronged and makes exacting plans to seek that revenge on whoever he paints the bullseye on, whether it's their fault or not. Well the blurb for this book of course reeled me right in.
I thought the plot was great and the backstory filled in well however I really wanted more character development between these two and honestly didn't expect them to hook up so early in the story. Having said that, they seem to fall into the same pattern of behavi

The Revenge Game is about Adam and Nicole- one a former chauffer and one the daughter of a hotel magnate. Their young love was thwarted by her father and now Adam is rich, successful and out to ruin Nicole and her company. The sparks between the two of them were very strong and had magic but the backstory was a bit of a mess. I didnt get the reason why they were pulled apart or why either of them made the decisions that they did. I think the backstory section would have worked better as a full c ...more

How I loved the reconnection between Adam and Nicole. To see the differences in their personas from ten years prior was so important to their story. Nicole grew from a meek, sheltered young lady to a stronger, independent woman ready to fight for her company. Adam is this strong, fighter alpha male who goes for what he wants, leaving personal emotions aside. But dang if the man does not have a few sexy and sweet surprises up his sleeve. Their reuniting was hot, intense, and perfect. I am glad th ...more

This is an entertaining and sexy romance that I enjoyed reading. Nicole is the "poor little rich girl" in danger of losing everything, while Adam is the boy from her past. Both were traumatized by their breakup, however, Adam was so hurt by it that he dedicated his career to destroying Nicole's company.

The characters are a bit predictable and I wish they'd had more depth. Instead of adding depth, there is lots of very hot sex.

These two had me cracking up. Adam is a self made rich man putting all his business efforts into revenge to make up for the past. Nicole is the focus of his revenge after they fell in love a decade ago and her dad's meddled. The sparks explode when you get the two in the same room making it obvious the past is not dead but can she convince him to live her instead of destroying her. A past history romance that w

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

After prologue, I was expecting hear how Nicole ripped Adam's heart out but when you actually hear what happened, you find that they both were at fault and Adam really only had reason to hate Nicole's father not her!

Not a big fan of the instant sex so was disappointed that after ten years, they jumped back into bed the first night. I also could not believe that Adam would approve Vivien's plan to buy the stock! He knew that would hurt Nicole and yet

I love second-chance romances, especially when there are miscommunications and misunderstandings on both sides. Adam and Nicole belonged together, and their second chance was so good. I was invested in them from the start, and I loved how the story played out!

This is not the type of romance that I usually like and my opinion was not changed by this book. The plot was cheesy and this fell a littler flat for me.

Revenge is a dish best served cold, they say. Ryan learns that it can also leave you out in the cold. This is a great second chance at love novel. I held my breath a couple of times.
