Beautiful Kaitlyn Monroe never thought that her job as a personal shopper would land her a chance to bump into a bad boy billionaire - Roy Hearst. Entirely fascinated by her wit and intelligence, he offers her a dare-devil proposal - to play the role of a social escort by his side. He just needs a date that he can string along to the socialite functions he is invited to attend. Believing in the pure innocence of the arrangement, Kaitlyn agrees to the 'scandalous' proposal for the sake of securing a better life and earning the money she needs for her college studies.
Everything seems to proceed smoothly until the day she finds herself in love with the charming yet forbidden billionaire. Love and commitment are words that never appear in the dictionary of Roy Hearst because he is one man who is able to get any woman he wants with a snap of his fingers. Will Kaitlyn stand to lose him forever with her confession of love or can she tempt the snobbish cad into falling in love with her?
Three Boundless Stars
Sweet Revenge is your typical “pretty woman” type love story. At 74 pages long, it is the quickest book I’ve ever read. I’ve written papers longer than this book, but I have to say, this book was definitely more exciting than any paper I’ve had to write in college.
Kaitlyn Monroe is working as a personal shopper when she meets her newest client, Roy Hurst, who is also a billionaire that has just acquired her place of employment, as another one of his many business investments. The two quickly hit it off as friends and Hurst is quite impressed with Kaitlyn’s professionalism and talent, so he decides to offer her another employment opportunity. This is when the “pretty woman” reference comes to mind, except without the “beck and call girl” aspect.
Without giving anything away, I’ll just say this; “If you’ve ever wondered what would have happened if Vivian was a prankster, this is the book for you!”
I enjoyed reading this book and it was an easy read, for the most part. The change in the style of the dialog threw me off a bit. It kept going from a personal to professional way of speaking throughout the entire book. Also, I didn’t feel a connection with the characters’ like I usually do so a bit of a background story for the characters would have been better for me. As a reader, I appreciate the ability to escape in a book and feel as if I can relate to the characters and see the setting of the book. I didn’t get that with this book. But again, I still enjoyed it and I look forward to reading more from Serene McCarthy to see how she grows as a writer.
I give this book 3 stars because it was a good book.
