⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW: Tis the Season for Revenge by Morgan Elizabeth

It’s rare that a book has as much PERSONALITY as this one, something that truly makes it sparkle and shine. That’s definitely the best part about this absolutely bonkers rom com – the journey is a little offbeat, a whole lot spicy, and a ton of fun. There’s a reason why everyone has been loving it, and love it I did. It’s apparent from the first few pages that it’s going to be a wild ride, and you just have to acknowledge that up front. Our heroine makes a rash, drunken decision, and her justification for following through with that is a little shaky. She quickly realizes her error, and that is further showcased by just how fantastic this couple’s relationship is… you know, other than the (not so) tiny secret between them. I loved that the heroine finds herself again one piece at a time, and the deeper undertones of this otherwise light and SUPER spicy rom com give it some extra weight. I devoured it in one sitting and enjoyed it the whole time.

The story follows Abbie (28), a woman whose heart is shattered when her boyfriend of four years dumps her out of the blue. It isn’t until the breakup that Abbie realizes she let the relationship overtake her life, molding herself into the woman she thought her ex wanted – and losing herself along the way. Heartbroken and angry, a drunken Abbie decides to get revenge. So when she randomly matches with the boss her ex hates on a dating app, Abbie concocts the perfect plan – dating her ex’s terrible boss and making sure that she’s on his arm at the company holiday party. Damien (42) is only looking for something casual, and her ex made it clear that his boss is no prize anyways. But the more Abbie gets to know Damien, the more she realizes the error of her ways. They actually have a real connection, and Abbie may have forfeited her chance with the dream guy she’s quickly falling for.

I’ve been meaning to check out this new-to-me author’s work, and this one seemed like the perfect fit. It’s a lighthearted holiday romance with an original storyline, different enough to stand out from the crowd. I loved that Abbie is not the typical heroine; she’s definitely got Elle Woods (Legally Blonde) vibes, and it was great to see her own that. I also loved that Damien adored the parts of Abbie that she was most self-conscious of, and how he could see past the vixen facade. He was such a sweetheart, such a loving and supportive guy. And their chemistry was excellent – both in AND out of the bedroom. There’s a ton of spice, and it was not always 100% to my personal taste, but I really enjoyed the connection between them. The hidden depth was also great, which contrasted with the sexy, playful side of the story. There’s discussion of emotional and physical abuse, which was handled well. And I liked that the story went there. All in all, this ended up being an engaging read, one which is perfect for any time of the year, but even better around the holidays.

Blurb:

Abbie Keller thought that Richard Bartholemew Benson the Third would be her forever. In their four years of dating, she never doubted that she wouldn’t end up with his grandmother’s engagement ring on her finger. Sure, she had to change a few things about herself to fit that mold, like dying her hair, dressing more conservatively, and finding golf enjoyable (honestly the most difficult of the changes), but she was sure that at the end of it all, it would be worth it. 

That is, until he leaves her crying outside her apartment wearing a Halloween costume, having broken it off with her because she’s just not serious enough. She was just fun, he tells her – and now that Richard has becoming a partner at his law firm in his sights, he needs to focus on work. 

So she does what every girl does when she’s broken up with: she calls her friends, gets drunk, dyes her hair, and formulates her plan for revenge. It just so happens that the universe supports her efforts and gives her the perfect match to prove to her ex that he made a huge mistake: his boss. 

Abbie starts dating the founding partner of Richard’s law firm, Damien Martinez, with one thing in mind: convincing him to invite her to the huge annual Christmas party as his date.

But when the relationship starts to become something more than casual dating and Abbie sees that the tough New York lawyer has a soft side, will she be able to follow through with her plan of deceit?

Tis the Season for Revenge is a contemporary, grumpy sunshine, age-gap, Christmas romance. It is a full-length romance with a Happily Ever After that features sexually explicit material and profanity. This book is intended for 18+.
