Revenge wasn’t supposed to be this sweet…

Sara Castillo has sworn never to get sucked into the world of the rich and famous, not after billionaire Benjamin Swayne broke her heart and left her carrying the burden of their shared secret.

Now Sara has a successful career working with her dear friend, Kyle Ashford, and her life runs like a well-oiled machine—until Kyle chooses Ben as his best man. No way will Sara let the renowned bad boy turn Kyle’s bachelor party into a front-page fiasco. She’s going to plan the party herself…even if she has to blackmail Ben into agreeing.

Ben isn’t thrilled about working with a woman who’d like to shank him and dump his body in a roadside ditch. But he’s willing to let Sara meddle, if only to teach her a lesson. And if the scent and sight of his old flame still makes his head swim…well, tough.

After Kyle’s party is wrapped up, Ben may finally be able to put Sara in the past. That is, if their time together doesn’t convince them they have a future.

short and sweetAt only a little over 100 pages I felt like this flew by! I was shocked to get to the ending so quickly even though the pacing in the storyline was very good.

From page one I knew I was going to feel a connection with these characters. It’s immediately understandable that the two lead characters do not like each other, and through rumination on each of their parts it is easy for the reader to understand why. I love that both are snarky to each other and speak their minds openly.

I’m sad that I started on book two because this feels like a story that needs to be fully read, but nevertheless, I enjoyed it immensely!

In short: Absolutely cute book with some really good sexy parts!

About Cassi Carver

Cassi Carver lives in sunny Southern California with two dogs, four kids, five chickens, and one very patient husband. She explores beautiful San Diego County for research (okay, for fun and relaxation) as often as possible. She's never saved the world, but she keeps sexy boots on hand just in case the opportunity arises.

When Cassi isn't busy plotting, writing, or exploring, she enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends, caring for pets, visiting the local animal shelters, drinking copious amounts of Diet Dr. Pepper, and watching sappy movies that deliver reliably happy endings.
