This is my favorite book so far by Carmen Falcone! It had me intrigued from the moment I opened the book and held my interest throughout the whole story. The relationship between Satyanna and Leonardo was filled with angst and love, even though neither would admit to it. Great read!!

Satyanna Darling’s substitute father had taken her to Rio de Janeiro purportedly for a vacation. At a ball before the Brazilian Carnival, Satyanna sees this gorgeous man, talks him up, and before they know it, Brazilian lawyer Leonardo Duarte and Satyanna are in her hotel room having wild sex. But when she goes missing at the same time as Leonardo’s most precious piece of art, he sees red and he vows revenge. His efforts pay off, and a year later he finds her in a jail in Rio; he makes a bargain with her: she must help him find his sculpture and he will not prosecute. Little did they know that this was only the beginning of a very complicated story… Oh my goodness! This whole book is a spoiler! BRAZILIAN REVENGE is still our Carmen Falcone at her snarky and sexy best, but I never expected this book to be such a page-turning suspense! Talk about plot twists! Who knew Ms. Falcone could write such a gripping suspense! There’s also quite an emotional angle to the story. But worry not, the sexy bits are all there, as well as the great characters: Satyanna is a wonderful woman; she’s had a tough life, but her heart is good, and she’s honest in spite of appearances. Leonardo has a hard time coping; he would want nothing more than truly hate Satyanna, but he just can’t; the attraction is just too strong. And I so loved that Brazil was so prominently featured, and so well described. I just can’t say more, because I will not spoil anyone’s reading. So many things I did not see coming; unbelievable! I have been reading mysteries and suspense novels since I was in grade school, and never was I so taken aback, especially with the initial turn of events! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

LOVED this book! It has it all - a great story, a hot romance, and characters you feel for and care about. This is the first book I've read by this author - it's actually part of a series, however it is a stand alone novel and I didn't feel like I missed anything by jumping in in the middle. Having said that though, I'm going to read the rest of her books. She is now on my must read authors' list. If you like romantic suspense, you will love this book. This is a must read for fans of the genre.

This is the second book by this author that I've read and in my opinion this book is just okay. It was interesting enough to want to finish and see how it was all reconciled but there was a great deal missing in the actual emotional relationship. The hero in this book, Leonardo, was extremely judgemental and didn't give the heroine, Satyanna, much of a chance and they didn't come together emotionally until the last couple of pages. That is too long of a wait IMO. They did come together intimately but he would use excuses like it being a stressful time and he needed the release then the next day he would tell her he regretted ever being with her. He did this numerous times and with all that was going on in the story I would have thought he could have been there for her in a supportive and emotional role, especially after thy find out some great but stressful news. He was too cold and unfeeling for my taste. I will have to admit that as I look back on Leonardo's treatment of Satyanna throughout the book, it was cruel, cold, mean, and uncaring just as withholding emotions, feelings and love can be. Unfortunately I still didn't like him by the book's end. It's hard to give a great review when you don't like the hero and felt he did not redeem himself in the end. He should have been horsewhipped for the way he treated her. He thoughts and emotions were like operating a faucet. Hot, cold, lukewarm, other words he was all over the place, wanting her one day then not talking to her for three.

OMG author Carmen Falcone's writing just gets better and better. This story is filled with loss of family, betrayal by one thought of as father and friend in the most horrendous way. We have a weekend of passionate loving turning into a year of looking for revenge for one, and a decline of hope and utter despair for the other. Will truths be told and believed, and can trust and possibly love be found amongst murder and physical attraction. This story has it all proving that the author not only can write about sexual adventures, but suspense and thrills as well. I can't wait to see what she gives us next

"Brazilian Revenge" by Carmen Falcone is part of the series 'The Brazilians.' It's steamy, romantic, suspenseful read about a Brazilian lawyer Leonardo Duarte and sexy Satyana Darling. They hook up during the Brazilian carnival and she ends up going missing about the same time as a piece of art. Sometimes things are not all that they seem. When Leonardo finds Satyana in a prison he recruits her to help him find who is responsible for the missing art. So much more to this book and you'll love it. I couldn't put it down.

Hot And Spicy This is a good romance that is about a Human Rights Lawyer named Leonardo Duarte who is out to seek revenge on Satyanna Darling all because she stole some priceless sculpture and because she had some fantastic mind blowing sex. The way the story is written he was more upset because he felt used and felt this connection with Satyanna. Fast forward a year later in the story and Leo finds his mystery woman in prison in Brazil. Leo tells her he will get her out of jail BUT he wants his sculpture back and the person behind the heist. Satyanna has no choice so she takes the offer. Satyanna is a good person, just had a lot of bad choices and people who steered her wrong. She also has strong feelings for Leo and felt bad for the position she was placed in and never thought she would sleep with Leo but it did happen. Holy Moly , Leo is someone I would sleep with on the first date/first meeting too but I understand why she is so off kilter now. Their story is one of betrayal , loss, pain, passion, hope , action and sexual chemistry. It is good and has a lot of elements that I liked but there were some parts to the story that didn’t flow correctly. I think it would be great to know that he didn’t see her as easy right off the bat but I guess that is supposed to be part of the story. I loved the heroine-she made the story perfect but the hero needed alittle work. And the flow needed to move smoother. Overall, this is a good story, just needs alittle more work My rating:3.9 stars **** *I was given an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review***

Brazilian Revenge is another hit by Carmen Falcone!! This book has murder, mystery, and lots of passion! It is HOT HOT HOT!! Carmen Falcone has done it again and wrote an impossible to put down MUST read! Satyanna is a hot mess looking for a family to call her own and chooses Clemonte to be her father figure even though he is a law breaker. Leonardo is a successful man who wants to have the kind of love his parents had. Does he get the love he is looking for and does she get the family she longs to have? You will just have to read it to find out. Once you start reading you won't be able to put it down! There are some great twists and turns that you don't want to miss!

If you are looking for a great romance with suspense, then you need to read this book. I can’t wait until the next book is out.

Revenge is sweet, but love can be sweeter. When Lorenzo Duarte met the beautiful American Scheherazade at a costume ball the spark of passion between them lead him to throw caution to the wind. He needed a distraction from his worry and depression over his father’s death sentence by cancer and fiery and passionate Satayana Darling was exactly the ticket. It was only once the weekend was over and Satayana, her partner and his family’s prized sculpture were all long gone that he realized exactly what his weekend had cost him. Now, he’s determined to find the sculpture and have his revenge on both Satayana and Harry, her con man partner but over the past year, his efforts to locate the elusive beauty have not been fruitful … until he receives a call from a women’s prison. They have Satyana and, more surprising, she asked them to contact him. He arrives at the prison to find her dirty, beaten and much changed from the woman he knew so briefly a year before, but the spark between them still exists, and more importantly, the story she tells sets them on a journey where they will need to rely on and trust each other to get what they both want. The Brazilian Revenge is a well-crafted story, part suspense, part mystery, part romance and all drama. It takes its main characters through danger, uncertainty and a good deal of self-analysis and growth and, until the very end, you’re never quite sure how it’s all going to turn out. It was a great read, and one I found hard to put down. Carmen Falcone just keeps getting better and better and this story is perhaps her best one yet.

I must say that I think this is one of the best books I have read by Carmen Falcone yet!! What she has done in this one is awesome and kept me turning the pages until I was done with it. Satyanna is a young lady that has wooed her way into Leonardo's hotel room one weekend. With her sly performance, Leonardo never suspects anything is going on with her until she goes to his house one night with him and suddenly disappears. Along with Satyanna's disappearance is also the disappearance of one of his most valued sculptures. Leonardo looks everywhere for Satyanna and finds her a year later in a prison all alone. Leonardo bails her out and says he will not prosecute her for the theft if she will help him find the man that has the statue now. So, Leonardo and Satyanna start out on their journey to find this man, but on their way there, they get tons more. The suspense, mystery and romance that Carmen Falcone interwove in this story is what keeps us as readers intrigued. I am always amazed what these Author's come up with for their twists and turns in their stories. Do Satyanna and Leonardo find the statue along with a whole lot more? You have to read this story to find out. You will not be disappointed one bit!! I also love the way that Brazil was so fluently described and referenced in this story! Well done Carmen Falcone!!

I received this book as an advanced copy in return for an honest review... I loved this book, and the best by Carmen so far in my opinion. We have Satyanna Darling, she is an orphan who was brought up by her father figure who used her to con/scam people when she was young and didn't know any better. She meets Leonardo Duarte and has a wild weekend with, where it's not just the sex that kept him entertained... When he meets her again she is in prison and needs his help to return to the US, he finds it hard to trust her again, even though he needs her help to return his fathers priceless sculpture. There are plot twists that will come right out of the blue and you won't know what happened or even when to expect... I loved this book, and another happily ever after with a twist.

First off I just wanted to say the cover is rocking, love it! Next this book starts with a tasty, naughty bang, right at the beginning. it grabs you and pulls you in. the plot has a bit of mystery, some unexpected turns and some real juicy moments. The storyline is not predictable which makes it awesome. we see Bruno and his beautiful wife again, extra bonus, I love series of complete books :) Satyanna has her work cut out for her in this one. she just wants family. Leonardo cannot trust a word she says, but will he learn too? This was a fun engaging read to see who wins, the con man or the lawyer. I'm hoping to see Camilla's story soon ;) ;)

After reading the first chapter the book gets very intriguing. This one keeps you on your toes. with the twists. Leonardo is a tough one for me to like at the beginning, but he wins me over pretty quickly. I give Satyanna a lot of credit she doesn't back down with everything she's been through in life. She keeps her head held up high. Leonardo and Satyanna have a lot of chemistry. It gets pretty steamy when they get together. Lives are on the line unless they can find the one behind it all before it's too late. Leonardo has a lot of trusts issues and he is very suspicious when it comes to Satyanna. Will Leonardo realize too late how he feels for Satyanna? Over all a great read.

This is another wonderfully written story by Ms. Falcone. The mystery and intrigue are mixed throughout and paced perfectly to keep the reader's attention right up to the end with a few surprises along the way. The emotional growth of Leonardo is heartwarming. I loved how Leonardo's family welcomed Satyanna into their lives. This is a very enjoyable book. ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

Brazilian Revenge by Carmen Falcone is a very sexy page turning story. Carmen knows how to turn up the heat in this guessing game. You think you have it figured out and then, it takes a turn. Leonardo and Satyanna are trying so hard not to fall in love with each other, but oh boy is that going to be hard. This book has everything I look for in a great story revenge, secrets, hot, sexy scenes and full of suspense. This is one book you do not want to miss, make sure you grab a copy and fall in love with Carmen's writing style like me. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Satyanna and Leonardo started the pages of this book hot, and continued to blow me away with the twists and turns for the remainder of the book. I'm a huge Carmen fan but this one might just be her best work yet. Great storyline, smooth flow, and fun characters. a copy was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
