Publisher's Summary

Katrina

The DeLaCoeur family destroyed my family, and ever since I was a little girl, I vowed I would have my revenge. Now the time has come, and I've waited my whole life for this. The heir to the family fortune is first on my list. Jackson. It should be easy - he's just a billionaire playboy that's used to women falling at his knees. I'll play along, I'll seduce him, and I'll humiliate him. But the second his warm lips burn into my neck, I fear that I might wind up sleeping with the enemy.

Jackson

Katrina Grammercy is after me for a crime I didn't commit. She wants to ruin my reputation - make me pay for my father's sins. But she doesn't know who she's f--king with. In this game, I make the rules. She'll be just like the rest - one taste of me, and she's done.

She wants revenge?

I'll give her revenge, by owning her sweet, tight little ass.

    Story
    "In The Middle!"

    I'm in the middle of this one. I really liked the concept of the story, a girl wronged by her childhood best friend's family, Jackson. She's hell bent on Revenge starting with Jackson and ending with his father, and she doesn't care who she hurts along the way. When she starts implementing her plans, she ends up with conflicting emotions about getting even with Jackson. While he's lead the good life due to his father's blood money, he hasn't been totally corrupted either. After the first incident, he's well aware of her plans of revenge and tries to discourage her but for the past 10 years that's all she's focused on. One thing I really liked about this story, were the plot twists, there were multiple plot twists that kept the story interesting and moving along. The one thing I didn't like was the lack of chemistry between the characters. They worked well together on some things but you really never felt the connection between them. There were several steamy moments between them (especially at the end), but the story has more drama and action than a steamy connection.

    Megan Kelly did a really good job with the narration. I like how she portrayed all the character's different emotions.

    Overall, not a bad story. It has more drama, suspense and action than romance. I received this audio in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Revenge with several twists & turns."

    I really enjoyed this story and the idea of a girl seeking revenge after her parents are murdered. Katrina is left in foster care to fend for herself. I found it difficult to understand why she would start with her childhood best friend Jackson. He was not the one responsible for it and the story develops and you find more twists and turns. I did not think her train of thought made sense when some unexpected things were revealed throughout the story.

    The narration was very good. It brought the story to life. The only problem I had with some of the narration was that sometimes the intonation did not match what was being said.

    The chemistry between Jackson & Katrina was lacking a bit. There was a lot of drama, suspense, action, and plenty twists & turns.

    Overall a good book and I enjoyed listening to it.

    "Great listening!"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook very much. The story is of a girl obsessed with getting revenge on a family she perceives as having destroyed hers when she was a child, and the man who feels that he shouldn't be responsible for his father's wrongdoings. Little does she know that he's on to her plan to seduce him and destroy him and he decides he will turn the tables on her. But they hadn't planned on the unexpected chemistry!

    Story
    "Very Good Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Revenge to be better than the print version?

    I have read several books by Lauren Landish and this was the first audible book by her that I have listened to. I initially had a hard time with the narrator when she did the voice of Jackson but that was probably me getting used to the new narrator. I really enjoyed this audio version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Revenge?

    I loved the opening scene in the limo. It was nice payback.


    Which scene was your favorite?


    I liked it when Kat and Jackson decided on the wedding jewelry.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was sad for Jackson when he thought Katrina was killed.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the characters in this book. I think it would be neat if Andrea had her own story. I did not rate this story higher as I felt parts of it were so unrealistic.(Kat and Jackson ages, Kat living off the grid like she did to mention a few). I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. This story was a very enjoyable getaway book with suspense and romance.

    Would you try another book from Lauren Landish and/or Meghan Kelly?

    I enjoyed the story and the performance, so yes, definitely.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was a little short, would have liked more.


    What does Meghan Kelly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her characters were great, very distinct. This makes it so much more than just a book.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    More warmth, everyone was tough and all about the vengeance. I liked them but didn't love them.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this audiobook for free in exchange of an honest review from the author or narrator. Thank you for the opportunity to listen and review your book.

    "One of the best audiobooks I've listened to"

    I absolutely loved everything about this book. I have listened to the audio version and it was amazing! The narrator Megan Kelly is fantastic, she manages to express each character's emotions and makes a clear distinction between them.

    Ok, now that I've made it clear where I stand let's get into my reasons. My main argument is the story (imagine that). The action is amazing, with a lot of twists that one can cannot foresee (at least I didn't). It is a (complex) revenge plan set in motion by Katrina Grammercy for all the pain the the DeLaCoeur family has caused her. She blames them for the loss of her parents and for a childhood spent from foster home to foster home until someone decides to show her another way to channel her anger

    Even from the beginning it is quite visible that Kat is as human as all of us, as her actions at misguided. She directs her revenge on the entire family, but will soon discovered she has plenty of allies and maybe not all of them are to blame. She never loses her focus, she has a clear goal which MUST be fulfilled.

    Jackson, on the other hand, has lived a life surrounded by women, with money to spend on anything and anyone he desired. When hes only true friend from childhood comes back into his life, he is determined to understand what happened to sweet Katrina that she had to become Kat - merciless, mysterious, well trained in martial arts, hacking and God knows how many other areas. And he wants his friend back.

    As I was mentioning in the beginning, there are twists in the story that you cannot even imagine, there are decisions that will surprise you all the way till the end. The writing is fabulous as well. The author offers two point of views: Katrina's and Jackson's. I loved the passing from one point of view to the other, as it did not cut directly into where the previous chapter ended. We get to understand both characters' reactions.

    Now, I did decrease one star from my rating just because I liked it so much that I was a bit disappointed in a couple of aspects. I wanted to know more about Kat's parents. I would have wanted a little more insight into how they came up to be like that. I know it's pretty vague, but I'm trying to keep this a spoiler free review. Some of the scenes right before the end were kind of forced into the book, as they seemed to me completely out of context.

    But this is still remains one of the best books I've encountered lately and definitely one of the best audiobooks I've listened till now. I loved it and I recommend it!

    3.5 stars

    There is a thin line between love and hate.

    Was the story enjoyable? Yes. Did it keep my attention? Yes. The story pulls you in from the start. Was it as good as I thought it would be? Not quite. Overall though the story was interesting, engaging and entertaining.

    Katrina has been planning her revenge on the DeLaCoeur family for years but with her first strike, aimed at her childhood best friend, she is left conflicted with feelings she thought were long buried.

    I really liked that Katrina was a strong intelligent female character. She was a survivor and a fighter. She knew what she wanted and worked hard for it. She was not about to back down from a fight or let herself be derailed from her goal.

    Jackson was an interesting character. He starts out being a complete douche and quickly turns into a great character.

    A little more time spent on developing the relationship between Katrina and Jackson would have been nice. Not their steamy encounters, the building of their actual relationship. The chemistry between them just wasn't there for most of the story. By the end though your rooting for them. Especially Jackson.

    Meghan Kelly did a really good job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Good character voices. Even her male character voices are good. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. She was able make you feel the emotions of both Katrina and Jackson. Very enjoyable

    Even though I enjoy Meghan's narration this is one of those books that would have benefited by having dual narration.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.

    If you could sum up Revenge in three words, what would they be?

    Twisted Up Revenge.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how well the characters were together and their growth as individuals.


    Have you listened to any of Meghan Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Meghan's other books, but I would very much so like to now that I have listened to this one. My first Meghan book ever!

    "Typical"

    I got this ARC via audiobook boom. This story of revenge turning into love was typical. Although the chemistry was not really there between them. The narrator was very good and I enjoy listening to her. The story was developed but it did not resonate with me. I find it hard to believe that she wanted to ruin Jackson because of something that his father did. She is so set on revenge that she does not care who she hurts in the meantime. If you are angry with someone then you should deal with that person, not others such as the son.
