Hello everyone! Today I am happy to share with you my review for Sweet Revenge: A Scandalous Proposal From The Rogue Billionaire, Book 1 in The Seduction Romance series by Serene McCarthy. I want to start off by mentioning that I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This story is about a young girl who is working as a personal shopper to earn enough money for college. One day a billionaire enlists her personal shopping services and she soon realizes that she is in for much much more.

I ended up really enjoying this story. At 88 pages this story is a very light read and went by really fast. I liked the storyline a lot but found myself always wishing that there was more detail in some scenes or that there were scenes left out that would have added to my enjoyment of the story like when Kaitlyn plays the piano at Arthur’s party. I would have loved to have seen that in the story and seen Roy’s reaction to her but that may also have been giving too much away about his true feelings for her.

I really enjoyed the little twist the story took at the end, it definitely surprised me and was a really sweet ending. I liked Kaitlyn a lot as our protagonist, I really liked how she blossomed towards the end of the story into a more confident and sassy character. I feel like she was still pretty sassy to begin with but I think being jilted gave her a bit more edge as it does in most of us as well. I wasn’t a fan of Roy at first though he definitely seemed intriguing and sexy but he grew on me and at the end I was like yes!

I thought the steamy scenes were great and I would definitely be interested in reading more stories in this series. When I finished reading this I found myself wishing it was longer so I could have spent more time with the story and more time basking in their romance. I love a good romance and am so late on getting on the billionaire romance train but I think I like it! You can purchase this story on Amazon (click the link). If you are a romance fan and specifically a fan of billionaire romances, check this one out! Happy reading!
