Caleb Ryan was the only man I ever loved. The only guy who even acknowledged my existence when we were going to high school together. But then he betrayed me....
I spent years trying to get over what he'd done to me, honing my hatred until it was knife sharp. Now I finally have a chance to exact revenge. He won't even see it coming. I plan to get rid of him no matter what it takes.
The only problem is I need him to achieve another goal. Whether I like it or not, we're going to have to work together. But I still plan to make him pay.
This is book one of the Revenge Games Duet. This is a sweet romantic comedy between a quirky girl, a ripped personal trainer, and a sexy billionaire. There is no cheating, and a happy-for-now ending is guaranteed.

Not what I was expecting
This isn't the kind of book I expect from Sky Corgan, it's possible that book 2 resolves what I didn't like about this book but I'm unlikely to read book 2.
I really didn't like Willow, the blurb described her as quirky but I thought of her as a bit deranged. Her emotions are all over the shop and so do her moods, there doesn't seem to be any middle ground with her. Her logic is also massively lacking, she can't tell that someone isn't interested in her 'perpetual optimism' comes across as delusional. Her reasons behind choosing Peter as her love interest is cold and show her as a shallow person and her decision to change herself into what he wants is short sighted and stupid.
I like Caleb, he comes across as a genuinely nice person who's just trying to help Willow out to make up for unintentionally hurting her feelings years ago. Although why he continues putting up with her escapes me, she's either mean or using him.
Peter just comes across as an oblivious arse, I do not see what Willow see's in him and the way he treats people is pretty awful.
The writing is the only redeeming part of the story, it is well written I just really didn't like the characters or plot.
The narrator did a good job, the character voices are well done and the delivery is well paced.
I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Challenges of dating and being a grownup...
Peter, Caleb and Willow. Bet you think it is a love triangle or a menage. Wrong on both accounts.
This is a story about a woman in her early to mid 20s who had a challenging childhood complete with a mother with mental health issues and a severe weight problem. She has stepped out from her family's influence, works hard on her education and health, and finally has her own place and space. Except she is living next door to her high school nemesis. The boy who she had a crush on and who broke her heart. The boy who initiated her downward spiral before she rebuilt herself.
The catch is that Willow missed a lot of life lessons that are usually gained in school. She is a little naive, socially awkward and struggles with a slightly warped sense of self. She actually doesn't see her own self worth. Honestly as a woman you want to tell her not to change herself to meet another's expectations and that she IS enough. But then she hasn't really had a chance to have that reinforced in her yet.
Anyway, her neighbour turns out to be a friend as he helps her cope with her feelings for her boss. This is book 1 in the series and I am looking forward to the next part. I hope Willow finds herself. This book is a little funny but it is also a little sad. It has a happy-ish ending that also acts as a beginning. It is definitely interesting and presents a lot of potential for the continuation of the story in the next part.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
