REVENGE IS SWEET...
Self-made billionaire Alex Damon wants his pound of flesh from the people who ripped his family apart. When he discovers his enemies' daughter is working at his company -- and most likely spying for them -- he decides to start his revenge by seducing her. Natalie Hall is stunned at the personal interest from the CEO of her company. Vulnerable, with an already bruised heart, she wants to avoid any involvement -- but she can't deny the desire he arouses in her.
...BUT LOVE IN SWEETER...
What should've been a straightforward eye-for-an-eye starts to unravel as Natalie's unflinching loyalty and kindness begin to thaw Alex's cold intent. But caring for her is unthinkable...since he plans to use everything in his power to ruin her family and everyone else she holds dear.
I wasn't really sure what to expect when I picked this book up but I liked what I found. I thought Natalie was great, although I wished she had stood up to her family sooner instead of letting her adopted mom & sister treat her as if she weren't part of the family. Besides her family issues, she is still struggling with a bad break up, and the fact that her ex moved on immediately. I definitely wanted her to find happiness because she was such a loveable character!
Alex starts out wanting to use Natalie in his revenge plot, but thankfully he changes his mind. He still has to deal with the fact that someone is giving corporate secrets to his enemy & his best friend is determined to blame Natalie for it, something that could put a damper on their relationship. Their chemistry was explosive and made for an interesting story!
