Sweet Revenge - Christy Reece

Book Blurb:
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.

In My Own Words:
After being held hostage by the savage monster, Stanford Reddington and his vile son, Jamie hatches a plan to not only bring him to justice for what he has done to her, but what he has done to countless women and children.  For her plan to work, she needs the help of the organization that helped to rescue her and reunite her with the sister she thought was dead.  Last Chance Rescue (LCR) does the impossible, they find, and rescue victims when all other avenues have been used up.  When Jamie meets with the boss, Noah McCall, and lays out her plan (most of her plan), he agrees to have one of his best operatives train her.  During the training, she thinks she is breaking through his tough barrier, and finally getting through to the man, she is irrevocably in love with.  When she finds out, he not only doesn't trust her enough to run her own mission, she believes he has been sleeping with her only to gather further intel.  She leaves, to only see him again, several months later, at Stanford's compound.  Shock turns in to pissed off, then on to camaraderie while they try to escape with their lives, and the information to help find the women who have been taken from their lives.  An unlikely accomplice helps seal the deal, but is it to late for true love?

Notable Quote:

This is the 8th LCR book, and brings us one book closer to the end of the series.  I for one will be totally bummed when this series finally comes to and end.  I loved everything about this book.  I think it is hilarious how Noah, the big, dangerous Noah McCall, who fought his HEA the entire way, is a matchmaker.  The banter between Jamie and Dylan was off the charts good.  I think my favorite parts were when Jamie surprised Dylan with what she had learned and was able to actually take care of herself and not be a liability.  The next book is going to be bitter sweet, then end of an amazing series, but the beginning of a new chapter in the author's life too.  Excited to see what Christy Reece brings us next.
