Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Sky Corgan comes a new adult contemporary romance.

Caleb Ryan was the only man I ever loved. The only guy who even acknowledged my existence when we were going to high school together. But then he betrayed me....

I spent years trying to get over what he'd done to me, honing my hatred until it was knife sharp. Now I finally have a chance to exact revenge. He won't even see it coming. I plan to get rid of him no matter what it takes.

The only problem is I need him to achieve another goal. Whether I like it or not, we're going to have to work together. But I still plan to make him pay.

This is book one of the Revenge Games Duet. This is a sweet romantic comedy between a quirky girl, a ripped personal trainer, and a sexy billionaire. There is no cheating, and a happy-for-now ending is guaranteed.

Not what I was expecting

This isn't the kind of book I expect from Sky Corgan, it's possible that book 2 resolves what I didn't like about this book but I'm unlikely to read book 2.

I really didn't like Willow, the blurb described her as quirky but I thought of her as a bit deranged. Her emotions are all over the shop and so do her moods, there doesn't seem to be any middle ground with her. Her logic is also massively lacking, she can't tell that someone isn't interested in her 'perpetual optimism' comes across as delusional. Her reasons behind choosing Peter as her love interest is cold and show her as a shallow person and her decision to change herself into what he wants is short sighted and stupid.

I like Caleb, he comes across as a genuinely nice person who's just trying to help Willow out to make up for unintentionally hurting her feelings years ago. Although why he continues putting up with her escapes me, she's either mean or using him.

Peter just comes across as an oblivious arse, I do not see what Willow see's in him and the way he treats people is pretty awful.

The writing is the only redeeming part of the story, it is well written I just really didn't like the characters or plot.

The narrator did a good job, the character voices are well done and the delivery is well paced.

Interesting

Any additional comments?

This audiobook was given to me for a honest unbiased review. This was interesting. I love the whole ugly duckling turned swan, concept, however the book would have been better had she remained beautiful on the inside. She turns bitter and shallow. Trying to kill someone who hurt your feelings is childish. Hopefully book 2 will be better.

The Revenge of the Unpopular Kid

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

If you always root for the underdog, this is the story for you. It's the much loved story of the ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan, and her success in obtaining love and adulation. All that however doesn't come easy or without a price to pay. With the ever present drama in her quest for what she thinks is the unobtainable perfect man, Willow is eventually rewarded for her doggedness and gets her prize but... I think part 2 in this duet series might have a different outcome. However that is only my gut feeling as I have not listened yet to it.
The performance was good and the story line a little predictable, but sweet just the same. My favorite character however was Caleb the lost friend who came back to Willow's rescue.
Hopefully he'll find his happy ending on the next book.

Not enjoyable

I have listened to books by Ms Corgan before and thoroughly enjoyed them. This one was not enjoyable and I could not get past the first hour.

I find the messages this story sends to be very disturbing. A girl who has had a rough go of it as a child due to family and home circumstances. People look down on her and make fun of her. She gets her heart broken by a boy she thinks likes her. She overhears something that makes her rethink this. She changes her life for the better but seems to become very ugly and bitter in the inside. She becomes petty, shallow, and does something downright dangerous to the person she feels wronged her.

I just could not continue listening so I am not even sure where the story goes from there, but from other reviews it seems to be more of the same.

mixed feelings

I really wanted to like Willow but she just irritated me. She is petty, shallow and self-centred, I couldn't believe she gave Caleb those cookies knowing full well they could kill him, along with all the other stuff she does. Then Caleb goes along with her machinations, the why is not revealed and at the end Peter's about-face is quite unexpected. I feel sorry for Caleb, it almost felt like he was falling in love with Willow.
Not sure what is the message in this story.
The cover is not reflective of the story AT ALL.

My first listen from Mr. Hoyt and I enjoyed listening to his various voices which he switched easily. He modulates his voice to fit the mood and each character. Will be looking for more of his audios.

A fairly clean story was not what I was expecting.

Revenge Games is the first part of the Revenge Games Duet by Sky Corgan.

HFN, PART ONE!

♥ Story ♥

The Revenge Games Duet is different than what I have listened to thus far from Sky Corgan.

Part one, Revenge Games, is practically clean. Most naughty words were used in anger and not lust.

Willow Stroop is our heroine, and it sets up two potential heros in Caleb Ryan and Peter Burgett. I kept waiting for this to turn into a menage, or lay the ground work for it to unfold in part two. It’s still a possibility, but I don’t think it will be that kind of story at all.

This changes points of view amongst all the main players: Willow, Caleb, Peter, and Becky. It’s curious to see the story through all the different eyes. It also helps soften some of their more harsher aspects.

I have mixed emotions. I want to root for Willow and her adventures to claim a new life. One that is free from all the strife of her childhood experiences. Obtain that guy you think is just out of reach, make the mean girls eat their words, and make all the guys that didn't give you the time of day, drool as you dismiss them like that they did you. However, she makes it very hard. She is a bit of an A-hole. The fact that Peter is a bit of an A-hole too, makes them meant for each other. All of which leaves you feeling bad for Caleb.

I’m hoping for more in part 2. Perhaps a new love interest for Caleb, because the other female, Becky, is not a good choice for him either. Despite the HFN ending, I think it needs part 2 to make it whole.


♥ Author ♥

This is something different from Sky Corgan. I will stick it out till the end, but I prefer her more naughtier tales.

♥ Narrator(s) ♥

Arthur J. Hoyt performed the four points of view well. Only time he ran into issue was when the two males were conversing with one another. One seemed to come out derpy. The females were excellent, especially for a male narrator.

Shallow

The best thing about this book was the narration and, IMHO, it wasn’t enough to keep me listening until the end. The main character is very immature, shallow, lacks self esteem and, for that matter, lacks any redeeming qualities that might make her somewhat likable. If that isn’t enough, the overall message of the book is awful. As a child, the main character was pretty on the inside but overweight and not the prettiest girl in the world. She changes, loses weight, etc. and, in doing so, becomes ugly on the inside because she wants a certain guy. I couldn’t finish it. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Revenge Games

This was a very enjoyable book. The beginning of the book has some pretty funny acts. I loved hearing what was going on in her head at times. I was pleasantly surprised with the ending as I assumed I️t would go a different direction after reading so many other books that I thought were like this one. I️t gives you a happy for now ending but still leaves you wanting to see what happens next.

Challenges of dating and being a grownup...

Peter, Caleb and Willow. Bet you think it is a love triangle or a menage. Wrong on both accounts.

This is a story about a woman in her early to mid 20s who had a challenging childhood complete with a mother with mental health issues and a severe weight problem. She has stepped out from her family's influence, works hard on her education and health, and finally has her own place and space. Except she is living next door to her high school nemesis. The boy who she had a crush on and who broke her heart. The boy who initiated her downward spiral before she rebuilt herself.

The catch is that Willow missed a lot of life lessons that are usually gained in school. She is a little naive, socially awkward and struggles with a slightly warped sense of self. She actually doesn't see her own self worth. Honestly as a woman you want to tell her not to change herself to meet another's expectations and that she IS enough. But then she hasn't really had a chance to have that reinforced in her yet.

Anyway, her neighbour turns out to be a friend as he helps her cope with her feelings for her boss. This is book 1 in the series and I am looking forward to the next part. I hope Willow finds herself. This book is a little funny but it is also a little sad. It has a happy-ish ending that also acts as a beginning. It is definitely interesting and presents a lot of potential for the continuation of the story in the next part.
