Title: The Revenge You Seek (Maddison Kings University #1)
Author: Tracy Lorraine
Genre: New Adult, Dark Romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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-something in a dirty puddle often enough to get the idea. Kane and Letty hate-effed the heckfire out of each other, and nothing good came of it.
Eighteen months later, the devil is back, and Letty has seen her nightmare come to life, in that Kane is the embodiment of some heartache unknown to us readers. Cliffhanger level stuff here.
So, Tracy Lorraine is at her finest and has to throw in the guys you wish Letty would fall for in the form of two book boyfriends, the Dunn Brothers. She also sets up sexual tension everywhere because she is the devil. I love her, but her writing cave is probably a place called Hell. And I want to say that I dinged her because I found the two main characters hard to like, but I felt it was in that room-to-grow sense that I can’t at all fault an author. What a cow?! You know what I mean?
So do I recommend this book? Well, I originally wrote my review of The Mistakes You Make by saying to start here because I wished I hadn’t met Kane Legend the way I did. Now, I am glad I read it because although both characters are still jackholes, understanding that night gives a lot of context to this book. I recommend reading both! This series is crack for dark romance readers. You will be dying for the next book when you get to the word ‘black.’
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
