And for that

Jessica ❥Chatterbooks Book Blog❥
The Revenge You Seek is book 1 in the Maddison Kings University series, but don't skip out on reading the prequel, The Mistakes You Make. In my opinion, it's a piece of the puzzle you don't want to miss. I say puzzle, because that's exactly what this series feels like. It's a Kane Legend and Scarlett Hunter puzzle the author is allowing us to put together slowly but surely. 


Each book gives us a little more insight into the characters and the events that have lead them to where they are now. Th

Holy Hot damn!!!!!! If I could give this book more then 5 stars I would. This is hands down a 10/10 for me Tracy has done it yet again. The roller-coaster of emotions I fell right now is completely overwhelming. Letty is a true bad chick! She is my new favorite female! I absolutely love her relationship with Leon and Luca! Once I started this book, I instantly wanted more! To say you will not be able to put this down once you start is putting it mildly. I read t

This book was amazing and man does it suck you in from page 1. Letty (Scarlett) and Kane grew up together in the same trailer park. Letty is now at Maddison King's University looking for a fresh start and her world is flipped upside down when she sees Kane Legend. Kane hasn't had it easy he lost both of his parents and is responsible for his younger brother. The chemistry between these two is intense and they can't seem to stay away from each other.

I've been waiting for Scarlett and Kane's stories since I read the last page of Legends. Then Tracy gave us a taste of that story in the prequel and I was counting down the days to finally get my hands on The Revenge you Seek. Imagine my heart when this book arrived on my e-reader. I started reading and the world around me ceased to exist. There was only me and wonderful characters who were able to arouse all possible emotions in me. This book was much better than I thought it would be. It’s an ...more

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

I started this book and just fell into the story. We meet Scarlet as she starts fresh at a new college after something bad derailed her life at Columbia. A big part of that was Kane Legend though the details are hidden during the book being told in bits and pieces keeping us in suspense. She freaks put when she learns he is at her new college and when he starts bullying her you can understand why. It doe

I was given an advance readers copy of this book and have decided to write a voluntary honest review. I was not expecting to be so captivated by this book. There is so much drama, it's hard to keep up, but your still sitting there wanting more. I like kane I don't love him yet. Scarlett I'm up and down with her. Now this might come as surprise for some but I love Luca and Leon. I want to get to know Devin, Reid, Ellis more. I hate Victor. Can't stand him. I can't wait for tje next one. ...more

This is one HELL of an intense and gripping story that you won't want to put down! Get ready
because the Madison Kings series has started off with a bang and you're not going to want to miss a single second of it!!

Lorraine weaves a complex plot with twists and turns as she reveals Kane and Letty's story. There's a history between these two filled with so much angst, pain, secrets, and lies that will leave you utterly enthralled from beginning to end! Seriously, this is one of the most explosive

‘We're not done until she has no choice but to think of me every time she moves, every time she looks at any inch of her body. I am going to fucking own her.’

I love Tracy’s writing. There’s no other way I can put it. It’s great.
The love hate relationship between Letty and Kane is hot! The relationship between Leon, Luca and Letty is hot too!
This book is one whole lot of steam and confusion and I can not wait for book two to come so that I can finally make sense of all the pieces!

The Revenge You Seek is the first book in the Maddison Kings University series by Tracy Lorraine. The story told through dual POV focuses on Kane Legend (Kyle Legend’s older brother) and Scarlett ‘Letty’ Hunter (Zayn and Harley’s older sister), who were first introduced in the Rosewood High series.

Letty had many different sides to her, some of which we see throughout. Sure she was strong, when she wanted or needed to be. But she was also weak and vulnerable too at the same time, especial

4.5 stars!

Tracy Lorraine has done it again, with a brand-new enticing and angst filled romance series, this time a trilogy rather than interconnected standalones. Maddison King University is very loosely connected the Rosewood series, but with brand new characters and set in a neighbouring college town. This is the start of Scarlett Hunter and Kane Legend’s story, and will continue in the next two books, and it’s definitely worth reading the prequel The Mistakes You Make first to get the full pe

Tracy Lorraine plugged in high octane darkness for maximum page-turning reading in her new series, Maddison Kings University.

Kane Legend is going to go down as the ultimate dark antihero, one readers find irresistible and the one that leaves mothers clutching their pearls.

The Revenge You Seek, is the first book in the Maddison Kings University series, but if you've read any of the Rosewood High series you might have run into Kane and Letty before as Kyle Legend is his little brother and Harley a

I've been a huge fan of this author and I have read most of her books by now but I can honestly say this is one of my favorite books from her and I'm seriously loving our two main characters.

This story follows Kane Legend and Scarlett Hunter, they have known each other for years but something happened to cause Kane to hate Scarlett. When she stops back into town for a party with her sister we see this first glimpse of the hate that Kane has for her but it is only the beginning. (This part takes

Off-the-charts Heat and Revenge never tasted so “dirty!” In this intense, dark college bully romance, where Scarlett Hunter and Kane Legend came to be in the prequel—The Mistakes You Make, the love-hate relationship between Letty and Kane continues to skyrocket in the Maddison Kings University Book 1–The Revenge You Seek!

Sorry for my late review but I felt hangover after finished reading the book. Gosh, this book is so intense and so dark with electric sizzling chemistry between Letty and Kane. I have been interested in Kane since I read Hunter. At first I thought he would going to end up with Harley but I found out after that Harley would end up with someone else and Harley's book, Legend, is the last one of Rosewood High Series so I am a little bit disappointed.

This is the start of a new series, but I would recommend reading the Rosewood High books first, especially ‘Legend’. There is also a small prequel to this book available free via Tracy Lorraine’s Facebook page. Without reading the sequel, at least it could leave you quite confused about what happened eighteen months prior to Scarlett and Kane being at Madison Kings University.
When the author first told us about this new series, I didn’t expect it to be all about the two characters. I thought, li

How am I meant to wait for the next book?
Jesus... okay. Deep breaths...
My stomach is in knots and I'm struggling to find words.
That. Was. Intense.

It started off pretty quietly, which gave you time to learn who everyone was, how they were related or knew each other, as well as giving you a few hints of what Scarlett went through.

I really like that Scarlett had people in her corner, that she reconnected with some of her friends from Rosewood.

The dynamics between some of the characters got a bit

Scarlett Hunter has found herself in the clutches of a man she knows she should stay away from, but can't. He has a impenetrable hold over her that she cannot deny, one word, one touch, one look and she becomes putty in his hands... and then regrets it later. She left town trying to escape him and the memories of them together, but they followed her, and reeked havoc on her life. She had to give up her dream college because of her past with him, and now she finds herself on the same campus with ...more

Well, knock my socks off why don't you Tracy!

Flippin heck this was sensational, just as expected!

We got everything we could have possibly wanted. We got enemies, college, bully, sports, gangs, a filthy talking a-hole, secrets, darkness... GAH! Perfection!

I should start by strongly encouraging you to read the prequel first, the mistakes you make, it is crucial to this story, also it's free so there's no excuse not to.

The Revenge You Seek is the 1st Book in the Maddison Kings University Series. This book ends in a cliffhanger. The Mistakes You Make Prequel should be read to fully get a handle on Letty and Kane’s relationship. The prequel and the book will have you hooked from the get go. Kane will suck you into his vortex. And, I am here for it all!!

“Of you? Never.”

Well this surely is an explosive beginning for this brand new series .

I don’t even know where to begin .

My emotions are currently all around the place.

This book is just the start of a never-ending rollercoaster of emotions.

Kane is definitely something else. I don’t even know how to describe him. But he is definitely the bad boy your mum always warned you to stay away from. For sure.

What a jerk!
I mean that. I don't know if I mean Kane Legend or Scarlett Hunter, though. Both are kinda jerky. Jerkish? Jerksome. I don't know what the term is. They are both jackholes, if you ask me. I like Letty a little more than Kane, but not by a whole lot. I think you are supposed to feel an abundance of sympathy for her, and I do. BUT she's a McJerkyjerk.

So if you read the prequel, you know what happened the night eighteen months ago, and if you don't, they refer to a sweaty something-som
