After I caught my boyfriend cheating, I tried to be mature about it with an amicable split. But he took his retaliation too far, and I have officially had enough. No more Miss Nice Haven.

No one is allowed to lie to me, betray, embarrass, and devastate me, fill me with self-doubt, or put my future at risk, and expect to get away with it. He is going to feel my wrath.

Enter Wick Webster, his archenemy.

Nothing would provoke my ex more than to see me moving on with the one guy he hates most, so that’s exactly what I plan to do.

The only hitch in my brilliant scheme is Wick himself. He’s just gotta be all love-not-war and peace-is-the-only-way. He’s more concerned about helping me heal than seeking my sweet revenge.

And what the hell is it about his soothing presence and yummy looks that calls to me until I forget how much pain I’m in? He’s making it awfully hard to use and abuse him for my malicious means. The damn guy is making me fall for him.

”You can’t fix me. No one can. Only I can find my way back to the light”
I glanced around the kitchen before coming back to shrug at her once more. ”Then I’ll just stay with you in the dark and keep you company until you do.” 



”THE REVENGE PLAN” is the latest installment of the ”Forbidden Men” series by Linda Kage and I’m wondering why I haven’t read all of the books yet. I absolutely loved ”Price of a Kiss” and couldn’t believe that so much time has passed that Mason and Reese have a niece old enough to be in her senior year of college. This story is a new adult, “friends-to-lovers” romance with enough angst to put your heart through emotional turmoil, but it’s completely worth it!! Wickham Webster is one hell of a swoon-worthy Hero. Once the story unfolds there is no doubt that readers are going to fall head over heels in love with him.



Haven Gamble catches her boyfriend in the act of cheating on her with her roommate. This sends her into an emotional tailspin and the one person who comes to her rescue is her boyfriend’s arch nemesis and fellow teammate on the football team. Wick and Topher have had a feud going on for years and only a handful of people know the true origin of their rivalry. I thought Haven’s reaction to Topher’s betrayal was a little extreme, but I get that it helped to develop the connection between her and Wick. The two end up being roommates and as time goes on a connection blossoms, one that seems to be so right and as if it was always meant to be.




Interspersed within the story are several chapters titled ”Hopeless Henry”. It’s an ongoing fictional story that posts weekly in the college newspaper. At first, I didn’t know what to make of these chapters, but as I got further into the plot, the puzzle pieces started to fit. I like what Linda Kage did there!!

Here are my overall ratings:

Heroes: 5++++++
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

”THE REVENGE PLAN” is currently available. It’s the perfect summer read! I am sure if you haven’t read the other books in the series, you’ll end up wanting to get to them all! I know I went and one-clicked a bunch of them!!
