Reviewed by: Roxanne


Daniel Hartmann and Emily Anderson have every reason to hate each other. Her father destroyed the lives of his parents and he in turn sent her father to jail. Now Daniel’s a successful billionaire and artsy Emily is his newest employee. Both of them intend to make the other pay for the sins of the past, but revenge has never been so sweet.

Quick & Dirty: Revenge is a dish best served cold, but what happens when the fire spins out of control?

Opening Sentence: For the seventeenth time in the last five minutes, I looked at the clock on the upper right corner of the computer screen.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

Emily took a job at Harmann enterprises in hopes of getting revenge on Daniel for sending her father to jail. She wonders if he knows who she is especially when he asks her to lunch. The attraction is instant and it takes everything Emily has not to kiss him during the lunch. He soon asks her to dinner and she wonders what will happen between them. She begins to wonder if she can hold true to her plan for revenge.

During the dinner, the sexual tension between them escalates, but then cools off when he mentions that she is Mark Anderson’s daughter confirming his knowledge of who she is. They just barely manage to hold off falling into bed, but soon the relationship between them is hot and heavy. Emily knows that she is losing control of the relationship and her plans for revenge.  Soon she is asked to leave her job, and she decides to make a clean break with Daniel.

But he begs her to stay and to go the Hamptons with him and after the trip ends Emily and Daniel are all over the tabloids. Her father shows up angry that she is in a relationship with him, and that his name is in the press again, which has ruined his chances of getting a good job. Emily confronts Daniel and things don’t end well. But is their love really over? How will she handle the new challenge on the horizon? Can Daniel really let her go?

This was a cute, quick and steamy read. I enjoyed every minute of it, although I am pretty sure Emily was pudding in Daniel’s hands from the get-go, so it was pretty light on the revenge and I was a little disappointed in that. Overall, I liked them as a couple. I was just expecting more revenge and more twist and turns during the course of the relationship.

Notable Scene:

My words charged the air, laid out a challenge. We both understood where this was leading. There was no doubt the attraction was there. What I didn’t know was, would I gather my clothes and be driven home in the wee hours of the morning, or would there be breakfast and normal, awkward, next-morning conversation? And why was I considering sleeping with a man I didn’t like? On the first date! When only half an hour earlier I had rejected the possibility.
