When this series started out, I was really intrigued about the premise. Siblings looking to uncover who had their parents killed when they were kids and going after them now themselves. The plot has been twisting ever since! At the head of all that has always been one person. Drew Lawless. The one that saved them all from a burning house. The one who’s gone on to make a fortune in the tech industry. The mastermind behind most of their plans and orchestrates everything even when they don’t realize it.
I have a soft spot for a geeky hero and Drew certainly fit that mold. But he was also controlling in all aspects of his life because that’s how he’s had to grow up. I didn’t completely fall for him the way I was expecting, although I did find him cute most of the time. Even when he was being an overbearing and over-protective big brother. His relationship with Shelby starts out as everything else in his orderly life… with a contract and a plan that Drew will execute. He can be quite clueless most of the time!
Then we have Shelby. I’m not a huge fan of the heroines in this series but I generally liked Shelby until we get to the point where she blows up and I thought for an intelligent woman she acted a bit over the top. I did like her sense of loyalty and how she comes through for Drew in the end.
In terms of chemistry, in the bedroom these two had a ton of it 😉 but outside I thought it was more of an insta-love scenario (although it really isn’t technically). I don’t think they connected enough for me to believe their deeper feelings.
REVENGE wraps up the storyline nicely with some more twists and turns and the signature heat from Ms. Blake.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
