What do you do when your best friend runs off with your fiancée on your wedding day?

If you’re me, Lyon Elliot, you don’t get mad.

You get even.

Which means seducing my ex–best friend’s younger brother, Miles Halloran.

The quiet one.

The man I’ve known all my life but never paid attention to.

The one I was told to stay away from because he’s way too nice for someone like me. Maybe they’re right.

But see, this is where it gets a little more complicated.

Because the more time I spend with Miles, the more I like him.

Want him.

Now I need him and his sweet smiles in my life.

If this is still a game I’m playing…who’s fooling whom?

Felice delivers a perfect “revenge into love” romance

RevengeIsSweet-600x900Revenge is Sweet by Felice Stevens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There’s not much more I love than a reformed rake and here Felice delivers up a modern contemporary version which is an absolute delight.

Lyon and Miles have a somewhat rocky and not at all conventional start to their romance, but they’ve also known each other all their lives too.

Lyon has spent his life closing himself off to the possibility of hurt of disappointment because his parents have done a number on him with their selfish and irresponsible behaviour.

Miles has grown up in the shadow of his older brother Dan, Lyon’s best friend, who constantly reminds him of a horrible situation he ended up in while at college.

When Dan runs off with Lyon’s fiancée, their paths intersect once more and a plan is set in motion to gain revenge and give Dan a taste of his own reprehensible behaviour.

Of course, not all goes according to plan as Miles finds out there’s much more to Lyon than what he shows to the world and Lyon realises he likes the person he is when he’s with Miles.

This is a lively and well-paced narrative that also had some lovely Easter Eggs that I hadn’t been expecting which I won’t spoil but really appreciated how they connected this story to Felice’s New York universe.

The romance itself is a perfect blend between the spice and the heart-filled awakening of two people who bring out the best in each other.

Uncle Harry, Lyon’s brother Scott, Miles’ bookshop manager Gordon, and Lyon’s Bar Manager Victor (who has his own bonus short story to download at the end!) are all wonderful side characters.

Dan and Lindsey, Lyon’s ex, can both fall off the Brooklyn Bridge for me. Felice writes them both well without turning them into cartoon baddies but I wanted them to suffer horrible things!

Felice is a kinder person than me though and they do get to deal with the consequences of their actions even if it doesn’t involve falling off the bridge!

I’d love more in this new location from Felice, this book was thoroughly enjoyable.

I love this series so much!

58565535._SY475_Fluke and the Faultline Fiasco by Sam Burns

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The third entry in this fabulous urban fantasy/paranormal romance sees Sage, Gideon, Fluke and the rest of the gang having to find out what’s happening with the convergence and dealing with a threat that could see Junction literally blown off the map.

Sam navigates through the complexities of the narrative with ease, one moment focusing on Sage’s growing confidence in his own arcane magic skills, at others giving quiet moments of family life with Iris.

There’s the same humour that has been present throughout, the steam level is understandably low as this focuses more on the paranormal/mystery and suspense elements of the storytelling than the romance.

Having said that, Sage and Gideon are as solid as ever, they have a few steamy moments which confirms that they’re still utterly committed to their relationship and each other and there is one particular scene which sees a very vulnerable Gideon that had me having all the feels!

Speaking of vulnerabilities, Freddy in this book almost broke my heart! He’s such a study in contrasts and here he really does prove himself in all ways up as a top bloke who is yearning to not only be useful but also to belong. I’m intrigued by where his story arc may go next!

I said in my review of book one The Fantastic Fluke that the series gives me a Scooby Doo mystery vibe and that remains strong in this particular instalment.

The bad guys were a surprise, not who I had been expecting at all, the suspense element works well, it’s an intriguing twist on what the other two books have used but still in the same we must destroy X Magic because ballpark.

More secrets about Great Uncle Jonathan are revealed and oh boy was he an absolute arse and, speaking of family, we get to find out a bit more about Gideon’s past and his connection with the local Dominus Anson.

Cannot wait for more!
