SANDYE (sandye_c) Her Perfect Revenge

Christina Matteo had a humiliating prank pulled on her in high school by rich, party boy Bill Havenwood. It changed her whole life and she never forgot it—or him!

Older, wiser and tougher, she meets him again years later and decides to get even. She wants revenge and comes up with a perfect plan. But things don't go her way when she stupidly crashes her car into his expensive sportscar while tailing him one day.

Not recognizing her, Bill blackmails the cash-poor Christina into helping him stay in his billionaire father's good graces by pretending to be his fiancée for one month. Christina decides to go along with his ruse. After all, who knows what dirt she can find out about the jerk from the inside?

But as Christina scams Bill and Bill scams his father—his father scams the both of them. William Havenwood Sr. knows all about their phony engagement and begins to push the couple to marry for real in order to get them to crack under pressure.

And then Christina's little revenge plan begins to spiral out of control when she finds herself actually falling in love with her avowed enemy, Bill. It's enough to make a girl sick to her stomach! But can she really continue to go through with her plans to make him pay when she's so attracted to the creep? Christina is just stubborn enough to find out!

Tedious with bad editing

73 chapters. I thought it would never end. It took 4 chapters to get to a point that could've been reached in just 2. The main 3 characters did nothing but lie, and scam each other through most of the entire book. When they should've been coming clean, being a stand-up adult, they lied and scammed even more. It just wasn't what I was expecting from a romance novel, very little romance in it, unless you want to count the one night of steamy sex. If you're looking for a fast-paced heartwarming romance...this might not be a good choice.

If it had any redeeming qualities I'd tell you to go for it. Sadly though, it takes forever and a day to get to the predictable happy ending and by the time you get there, you just don't care anymore! :-)

I really don't like leaving negative reviews if I can help it. I try to be positive whenever possible, at the same time though I'm always honest!

Amy | 8846 comments Of course we prefer to love the books we read. And of course we try to be generous to our authors efforts. But you know a well written negative review or a total pan off a book just makes us chuckle!
