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.

Jackie delivers a mystery romance with all the feels

Hiding Place CoverHiding Place by Jackie Keswick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is another really love read from Jackie.

She has such a clever way of drawing you into a story by slowly revealing little snippets of story, or growth in feelings, without ever bashing the reader over the head with lots of exposition.

Her use of emotions through the language and dialogue choices she makes also give you a real sense of what both Robert and Zach have been through and the traumas they’ve had to deal with

You get all the feels with this one, grief, anger, loss, pain, hope, love and the dawning of a bright new future full of healing.

Zach is a real sweetheart. From the start we get a sense of this still relatively young man who has been dealt a blow that could have levelled a lesser man.

Not only did he lose his two best friends, but the career they’d built together as successful musicians and he’s temporarily distanced (albeit because he’s dealing with too much grief) from the only family he’d known in Noel and Ricky’s parents.

Robert’s a harder win, though he will ultimately steal your heart too when you find out all his secrets. He blows hot and cold with Zach but comes through big time as the story develops and through the way he offers comfort and support.

The murder mystery element is intriguing, there’s not much given away until the very end and it felt like a believable and satisfying conclusion to me.

And, with a Northumbrian setting that feels very familiar to me as all my childhood holidays were spent in and around Alnwick, the whole book delivers.

My only reason for it not being a 5* review is that I personally prefer to have a little more heat taking place on page, although Jackie does deliver on the physical relationship between them, it’s not overly detailed and there are elements of fade to black in some places.

Overall though this book provides a beautiful relationship with two people who perfectly suit each other and who you know will grow happily grey sitting in the Pele Tower and watching the sun set over the beautiful countryside.
