    1. HPs are my guilty pleasure. They're like junk food. Quick, yummy and temporarily satisfying, but not filling. My favorites are the revenge ones. This one, however, didn't do it for me. I think it's what the reader is looking for in these novels, because they are certainly very formulaic and we wouldn't continue to read if we didn't love the formula. However, this one was missing some ingredients I look for and need in the mix.(view spoiler)[I like the H to fall in love first or at least at the s [...]


    2. Wow!!! (view spoiler)[ This is one of those page turners, that you can't put down. Even though there is an incredible grovel, it didn't make up for his sins. He just wasn't worthy of her. She deserved better, but I still loved it. (hide spoiler)]


    3. Cussing alert.Die, you effing son-of-a-bitch bastard, die!Son of a bitch bastard wants to teach the h a lesson as she, SUPPOSEDLY, broke his friend's heart so he ran into a wall. Dead. Daddy made her break up or would ruin the whole family. The so called H lies, manipulates, belittles, humiliates, sneers and degrades the heroine so she falls in loooovvvvveeee. Sex, she's a virgin which gives him pause. Oop, dinner is calling. Finish later.LaterBack to the plot. The h rolls over at the end, but I [...]


    4. A revenge plot. Hero thinks heroine caused his friend to commit suicide. Heroine fights back most of the time. Extensive grovel by hero.



    5. As KatieV has pointed out in her review, hero was still contemplating revenge when heroine professed her love and moved in with him. He even lied to her and said "I love you" for revenge purposes.And to be honest I don't think ANYTHING changed until he had solid proof no matter what he claimed.His declaration of undying love came AFTER the evidence not before.I think book was believable up to the point when she gave him the boot. She wasn't even missing him. Then the hero's mother comes and says [...]



    6. I liked Sian cos she had a real temper AND she knew how to hold a grudge! She's the only HP heroine I've ever read who actually gave it to the OW- made a big ol' scene, called her a pathetic skanky hoebag for chasing a man who doesn't want her, and made her run off crying from a party. Nice! Seriously the first time a heroine's been more than a match for the OW and dispatches her all by herself, in public, without any help or the OW tripping herself up with a revealing evil speech.So the revenge [...]


    7. Rating 3.5 starsA hero hell bent on revenge for what the heroine did to his old friend. Heroine feels equally guilty about what happened but is not gonna let the hero walk over her. A moment of recklessness on her part, leads to them getting engaged. As usual inspite of the hero's actions she falls for him believing that he has come to trust her and the reader too is lulled into believing all is well. But then everything explodes and the hero has to grovel big time because this time the heroine [...]



    8. Saw this come through my feed and keywords that jumped out at me: angsty and groveling hero. So I went looking for it in the print TBR and pulled it out expecting just that angsty read with a groveling hero. Wrong. Not what I got at all. Hero was an asshat from the very beginning and then he did a complete turn around that I just knew the heroine would see through his liesd yet she didn't. She fell for them hook, line and sinker and I just wanted to shake them both until they started using their [...]


    9. although the book was goodr had a boring moment n i enjoyed the pace n the author's writing style, i could not get pass the supposed hero ! he was tremendously awful !! i despised him 4 what he planned 4 the heroine.n hw he was manipulative !! "oh i had dat picture of u he sent me n i wanted u 4 myself" haha poor heroine got sucked in his lies


    10. Tear jerker but I loved it. It was just amazing. The heroine was kick ass and oh man, her temper had me giggling. The hero was an ass who grovelled like mad, it was pretty epic.


    11. Is it me, or is this heroine dumb as dirt? She falls in love for no reason and she doesn't even give the hero the chance to redeem himself, she just forgives.uhhhh k. The story feels so unfinished. The villain dies causing no more issues. Just all around a very lack luster book.


    12. So many tropes in one book! I'd heard so many delicious things about this book and how cruel the hero was. I kept readingreading and waiting for exceptional cruelty, and almost gave up. Little did I know we wouldn't see how cruel until the end. As terrible as it was, it waited too close to end for me to enjoy it. I needed more, and expected more, angst.


    13. Really good.The trope is similar to the one used in Jessica Steele's the other brother. Man tries to dupe woman into falling in love so he can reject her, paying her back for harm she did to a relative, only man learns afterwards that he had it all wrong.The original guy didn't hurt her, but she had to hurt him for fairly understandable reasons.The Hero is her new boss, acts like a tyrant, but then they begin a relationship and he discovers two things - 1: she's new to physical love, and 2: she [...]


    14. His vengeance plot backfired.His friend committed suicide after her rejection and now he’s out to avenge his friend’s death. Like any good heroine, she is of course innocent – as a matter of fact, she’s being blackmailed herself -- and tries in vain to convince him that she’s not the spoiled rich girl that he thinks she is.At an office Valentine bash, she offers herself up to public humiliation as a way to end his pursuit of revenge. She asks him to marry her expecting him to outright [...]


    15. Deliciously angsty! Amanda Browning is one of the better Harlequin authors I've read. Her characters are pretty 'sane'(unlike some who act in a totally illogical and over-the-top manner), her stories are a bit unrealistic (but what the hell, I read them for that very reason!) and she makes sure the reader goes home extremely satisfied.The last third of the book was well done. I love a good grovel esp. when its done by the H ;-). The h's display of jealousy due to the H's pushy ex (redhead's temp [...]


    16. Love this novel a lot! One of the best. Sympathized with heroine and excused the hero simply because he couldn't but fell in love with the heroine.
