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.
Jamie Kendrick was kidnapped by the vicious Stanford Reddington. She narrowly survived being sold and sexually tortured when the Last Chance Rescue team saved her. Now Jamie wants a little revenge. Reddington runs a human trafficking ring and she plans on bringing him down but she needs a little training first. Jamie goes to Last Chance Rescue for help. Dylan Savage, the operative who pulled Jamie out of that hellhole, and hasn’t been able to get her out of his mind since, is assigned to train her. This assignment is twofold for Dylan. He is also supposed to find out what information Jamie is withholding and convince her to quit her quest for revenge. Easier said than done. It doesn’t take Dylan long to realize what a headstrong woman Jamie is. He may have to pull out every trick in the book to convince her to back off. Perhaps, seduction is in order.
As Dylan attempts to get close to her secrets, she gets closer to his heart but how will Jamie handle being misled? Will she dive head first into danger or run as far from Dylan Savage as she can get? Reddington must go down and Last Chance Rescue will do whatever it takes to put him out of business. Who will get to Reddington first: Jamie or Dylan?
This is my first Last Chance Rescue book, what a great series I’ve been missing! Sweet Revenge is a seductively thrilling novel. The action and emotion are piled high in this kick-ass story. I adore Jamie’s stubborn bravery. She has been through something that could totally mess up a lot of people and she handles it like a pro. Her determination to take down this horrid criminal is admirable and wraps the reader up emotionally. Dylan is the sexy stalwart hero but it was hard not to be angry with him while he’s hiding his intentions from Jamie. However, he does make up for it. Jamie and Dylan sizzle together. The scenes between them while training are rife with sexual tension. Christy Reece’s Sweet Revenge is a sweet and spicy suspense filled treat!
