Overview

Adam Morrow is a self-made millionaire. But one night with her could ruin everything…

I’ve worked my ass off for what I have, and I’m damn proud of it. I started off with nothing and now I’m filthy rich. Let me tell you, there’s nothing like revenge to help you get your ass in gear. And that’s what I’m taking, with every exclusive resort I open—sweet, sweet revenge…on her.

Nicole Westmore was my first love. The poor little rich girl stole my heart with her sweet smile, hot body, and irresistible innocence. The summer I worked for her father was the best time of my life…until he drove me away. Even then, I thought Nicole would wait for me. She didn’t.

And so, I decided to get even, opening rival hotels, slowly driving them out of business. The old man is gone now, but Nicole is still running the company that’s about to collapse. All my hard work will soon pay off.

And then I catch sight of her at a wedding, and all those feelings come rushing back--for both of us. Still, she doesn’t know what I’ve done—yet—and she seems more than willing. What will one night in her bed hurt?

The sex is hotter than ever, and I can’t help wondering if I’ve made a mistake. Until I get up the next morning…and realize I’ve been kidnapped!

This is more like a second chance romance than an enemies to lovers romance. Only one character really has anger and that is Adam. Nicole mainly feels hurt. This was just an okay story for me. I have no problem with sex being in the stories I read, but this was just way too much and way too soon. I get that this is a shorter story, but the two main characters haven't seen each other in ten years and the first time they do that have sex? And in the second chapter? It just wasn't believable for me. I want some more substance in my characters and storyline first. Adam and Nicole fell in love when he was working as a chauffeur for her father. Nicole's father never liked Adam and he drove the couple apart. Now, years later, Nicole's father is dead and Adam has a revenge plan to remove Nicole from the head of her father's company and take it over. But, as usual, things don't go according to his plans. Thank you to Entangled Publishing for an arc in exchange for my honest review.

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy. After prologue, I was expecting hear how Nicole ripped Adam's heart out but when you actually hear what happened, you find that they both were at fault and Adam really only had reason to hate Nicole's father not her! Not a big fan of the instant sex so was disappointed that after ten years, they jumped back into bed the first night. I also could not believe that Adam would approve Vivien's plan to buy the stock! He knew that would hurt Nicole and yet he went along with it. The only redeeming part of the book was the end where Adam woke up and saved the day, and the wedding at the end.

How I loved the reconnection between Adam and Nicole. To see the differences in their personas from ten years prior was so important to their story. Nicole grew from a meek, sheltered young lady to a stronger, independent woman ready to fight for her company. Adam is this strong, fighter alpha male who goes for what he wants, leaving personal emotions aside. But dang if the man does not have a few sexy and sweet surprises up his sleeve. Their reuniting was hot, intense, and perfect. I am glad the drama was not as heavy as it could have been. And I totally laughed and loved Adam and his friends scenes. I want more from them. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

One of my favorite tropes, man who thinks he's been wronged and makes exacting plans to seek that revenge on whoever he paints the bullseye on, whether it's their fault or not. Well the blurb for this book of course reeled me right in. I thought the plot was great and the backstory filled in well however I really wanted more character development between these two and honestly didn't expect them to hook up so early in the story. Having said that, they seem to fall into the same pattern of behavior throughout and I felt like the story never really went anywhere, plot stall in a big way. I couldn't relate the either character and that's unusual for me also. I just needed more, but that's me. I'm sure everyone else will enjoy this read. It rates a low 3 for me. arc from NetGalley and Entangled for an honest review.

This is the first book from this author that I have read. It was an ok read for me. This was a second chance/enemies to lovers’ romance. Adam and Nicole were in love 10 years ago but it wasn’t meant to be. He blames both Nicole and her father for not getting the girl. He plots his revenge by planning to take her father’s hotel. Once her father dies, he plans on taking the hotel from Nicole herself. The chemistry between the characters was very noticeable. Even after 10 years apart, they didn’t need to take time to know each other again. They were able to pick up like nothing happened. With his plan in motion, will be able to stop it in time so he can finally get the girl or is it too late to get the HEA they both lost 10 year ago.

The Revenge Game by Alice Gaines a four-star read that will turn you around. This had all the makings of a five-star read but just missed the boat a tiny bit at the steamy bits and as there were plenty this is why I have it four-stars. I liked Nicole Westmore, she was a driven young woman that would surprise you with her depth, and Adam Morrow was a driven man, he was wronged and is doing everything in his power to get it right again. That part I liked, and the boat was fun, its nice to see it the other way around, Nicole surprised me in more ways that I can explain. I will look out for more from this author as overall it was a great story.

This is an entertaining and sexy romance that I enjoyed reading. Nicole is the "poor little rich girl" in danger of losing everything, while Adam is the boy from her past. Both were traumatized by their breakup, however, Adam was so hurt by it that he dedicated his career to destroying Nicole's company. The characters are a bit predictable and I wish they'd had more depth. Instead of adding depth, there is lots of very hot sex. This is the first novel I've read by this author and I love the premise she's based this series on. So, while I'd give this book a solid three stars, I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
