Review - Sweet Revenge (LCR #8) by Christy Reece

Description: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense

Visit Christy's web-site

Jamie Kendrick went on a trip to hell at the hands of Stanford Reddington, a monster protected by money and power. Now, asking for Last Chance Rescue’s help, Jamie makes plans for her revenge. And Dylan Savage, one of LCR’s most skilled operatives, is given an assignment he despises but can’t refuse—to train the lovely Jamie but thwart her revenge plot at all costs. With tender ruthlessness, he pries open her most intimate secrets, and the attraction they’ve both tried to deny explodes into a scorching love affair—an affair that Dylan has to end. Months after Jamie stormed away from Dylan and LCR, the two meet again—at the home of Stanford Reddington. In the grips of hurt, anger, desire, and undercover danger, Jamie and Dylan will risk more than broken hearts: they’re risking everything to stop an evil fiend from destroying more lives, including their own.

D's Review:
Jamie and Dylan are up there with Noah and Samara as my favorite LCR H/h.  Sweet Revenge is fast paced, emotional, a definite page turner with some twists and surprises thrown in.  The chemistry between Jamie and Dylan is off the charts hot and the banter between the two of them is extremely entertaining.   Jamie is such a strong woman, even after everything she has been through. She shocked Noah by standing up to him and making him give her what she wanted.  Dylan, Dylan, Dylan....is such a sweetheart under all the grumpiness and grouching...There is a part where he tells Jamie what she reminds him of that is so sweet it brought tears to my eyes.  TBH when he admits to himself he's in love with her, their first kiss and their first time are some of the sweetest scenes I've ever seen from a total Alpha male.  Jamie and Dylan are just a perfect couple, they both have horrible baggage, but find healing and comfort in each other.

It was great to see some of the other LCR H/h in Sweet Revenge...and of course it wouldn't be a LCR if Noah didn't try to play cupid at least once.

The only thing I hated about this book is after the acknowledgment there is a page that says "Turn the page for a sneak peek at Sweet Reward, the final novel."  I hate to see the series come to an end...but per my interview on 9/1/11, with Christy, Sweet Reward is the end of LCR, however she is working on something new that I have faith will be just as AWESOME...BUT I HATE TO SEE THE LAST of NOAH and the LCR family.   However......I wonder what happens to the young Raphael??????
