*giving him a *him a confident look she walked slowly toward him Dylan s heart pounded and his body tightened going stone hard She stopped inches from him and said softly What s gotten into me I would think that s an obvious answerEhm if there s anyone who doesn t know what THAT means I d be pleased to enlighten ou any time I truly liked the training part at the cabin That was fun to read and of course at times also annoying because of this stubborn cold and infuriating specimen of a hero They even had good chemistryI had a few issues with this book Everything stands and falls with the male hero because I m into menI didn t love the hero In fact I even had a hard time to like him at all I don t want to be mean therefore I gave him his chance to redeem himself And hefailed pitifully The ending sealed the deal for me This happened like that hero comes to the cabin is surprised by the presence of heroine SNARLS Kiu yes actually snarls at heroine grumbles something about not being good enough for heroine heads off to bed vanishes in the morning and then surprisecomes backyeah what does he bring the heroine A shiny gem How convenient And way too cheesy for my liking And for the first time in his life he says I loveou Yeah and before THAT he often treats her very very badly actually I wanted to use a stronger word I m sorry but that s just not good enough I know he did it in the name of protecting the heroine but did he really have to act like a jerk Further I wanted relationship development depth Halfway through this book I got and annoyed and almost everything went down the drain Additionally I struggled to believe that an elementary school teacher is really able to head off to this island and bring down such an evil creature That seemed a bit far fetched But hey that s fiction And there s one scene when she speaks about her ordealhe comforts her and I thought Oh he can be nice And what does he He dumps her I wanted to smack him Ehm Dylan this advice comes for free

ever live this down It s not a bad childhood that defines us It certainly influences us but we are responsible to define ourselves and we grow along the waySometimes I regret bygone times and that s THE MOMENT TO SAY THAT I WANT COLE AND ETHAN BACK I loved those two guys And I think that s the moment to say Barbara hold our horses Yeah but I gained 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 His momentum and it s good to let some steam off I ve read way better books by this author and therefore I just expect Sweet Revenge left me with a sourly taste in my mouth and I d have preferred it the other way round Another great addition Though I haven t been floored by any LCR books I ve got to say that at this point I m very impressed Each book has stood on its own and each couple is firmly entrenched into my romantic suspense library The one in my head I feel comfortable in Last Chance Rescue world and it s been nice getting to know all of those involved in the organizationThis one s notable difference was its lack of gruesome rapemolestation The idea was there and I knew that the bad guy had done some of these horrible things but for once I didn t have to have all of the scenes spelled out for me Rather I got to be uietly disgusted and still able to focus on the romance of the couple I know in LCR 7 I was so turned off by the villain that I nearly forgot about the loversOne complaint I have is that it ended with a lot of unanswered uestions about the many side characters Raphael and Giselle the evil dude s wife and ounger daughter Maybe we ll get in the last LCR book I m definitely looking forward to it This was a hard one for me to get through It was a fast read but not for good reasons I mainly just wanted to get it over with instead of enjoying each page and development We met Jamie in her sister s McKenna s book when she was mistaken for her and kidnapped and tortured then sold I had high hopes for Jamie and Dylan s book but alas it was kind of a letdown I empathize for the both of them individually how horrible their childhoods were but together as adults they were frustrating and annoying in some of their decisions making Months after her rescue Jamie returns to Paris to ask Noah to train her Her motive to get the man Stanford Reddington who bought her for his son s sick pleasures I understood her need for justice but she wasn t forthcoming with information that could ve gotten LCR to get to Reddington sooner Instead she spent months training with Dylan who ran hot and cold towards Jamie often tha Sweet Revenge was a good book but not great or as good as some of the other books by this authorJamie McKenna s sister went through hell at the hand of a sadistic monster when LCR and Dylan rescued her After months of therapy and being disappointed by the legal system Jamie is ready for payback and to bring that man and his organization down one way or another so she gives LCR boss Noah a chance to help herNoah doesn t want her in danger but to placate her tells her he will get her trained the operative who is her trainer is Dylan someone who seems to resent her and grunts at her Dylan doesn t hate her instead he is attracted to her but his shitty childhood makes him feel that he isn t what Jamie need so he is an all around jerk than 90 % of the book and even though I got his reasons didn t mean I had to like him and I didn t reallyJamie on the other hand was super strong and resilient and even when she finds out LCR tried to dissuade her does what she knows is neededThe book wasn t bad but I just couldn t connect with it that much uickie reviewJamie s initial thoughts about Dylan How could one man be so gorgeously handsome so wonderfully heroic so seemingly kind but so incredibly obnoxious rude and well just generally an assholeThat s Dylan He obnoxious rude and well just generally an assholeThat s Dylan He INCREDIBLE MOMENTS OF SWEETNESS TOWARDS JAMIE FOLLOWED BY THAT moments of sweetness towards Jamie followed by that hero thinking ou know how they are thinking he wasn t good enough for Jamie she could do so much better than him and deciding that staying away from her is what s bestfor her I wanted to hug him and slug him all at once But even with his moments I really enjoyed this story Jamie struggles with her previous capture and assault and vows to make Reddington and his son pay She puts herself out there endures tough training courtesy of Dylan and she has a plan No one and nothing is going to get in her way and she s a pretty gutsy heroine Dylan has such a horrible horrific past his parents were drunks and it goes just Dylan has such a horrible horrific past his parents were drunks and it goes just down downhill from there He made it through and it takes him a long time to open up to Jamie They re a great couple and my favorite parts of their story were the scenes when Dylan was training Jamie Their scenes are hot but I eually enjoyed the scenes with Jamie when she was able to complete the obstacle courses and prove to Dylan and herself that she was strong and toughHave to mention everyone s favorite matchmaker Noah He had a great scene with
