Jess moves to LA for her dream job as a music intern. On her first day, she bumps into Dylan busking on a street corner.

Dylan Wolf has a gritty voice. His eyes are soulful. His incredible body is to die for, tattoos and all.

When Dylan looks at Jess, she feels emotions she’s never had before. He can be sweet, but his dark moods scare her. When he sings, the whole world falls away.

Jess and Dylan’s meeting hasn’t gone unnoticed. At her job, Jess is summoned to the mysterious ninth floor. Her new assignment is to get close to Dylan. By seducing him.

One thing is for sure: If she takes this assignment, Jess will never be the same.

I read Revenge the other night.  Yup, you read that right, I read it the other night, in one sitting.  Holy moly.  It was fantastic.

As you read in the blurb, Jess moves to LA for her dream job.  Jess lives with two girls, and their lifestyle isn’t like hers at all.  For instance, they bust in on her in the bathroom to use the shower, and have no issues getting naked in front of her.  But Jess has this amazing personality; she doesn’t like it, but she goes with it, and moves on.  She’s adaptable like that.

While she’s walking the streets of LA she sees this cute guy who’s about to start playing the guitar.  He notices her too, and starts singing a song about Jess’s blue shoes.  The song ends and Jess gets mugged and either punched or elbowed in the eye.  The guitarist runs after the mugger, returns the wallet, and ends up walking away giving Jess the bird.


Well, I can’t give anything else away.  You should read it without spoilers.  🙂

But seriously, I was so engaged in the story and was so disappointed when it ended.  My only complaint was that it was way too short!  I went on Amazon to find the next one and I guess the whole series is about the same length, around 125 pages each book.  It’s times like now that I wish I had Kindle Unlimited.

But anyways, if you’re looking for another series to suck you in, read this!  I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2!

My Review:  4 1/2 stars
