{Blog Tour: Review} of Vengeful Love by Laura Carter

Vengeful Love by Laura   Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Contemporary
THEME: Romance, Mature


He's a devastatingly handsome, filthy-rich CEO. She's a high-flying London lawyer. All it takes is one boardroom pitch. One hostile takeover.
Vengeful Love is darkly suspenseful, sinfully sexy white-collar romance at its very best.

I've always walked the straight and narrow—following the rules, never straying from my chosen path.

Until Mr. Sexy Bazillionaire CEO Gregory Ryans walked into my life. It was only supposed to be business, but one brush of his wicked lips against my skin changed everything.

I can't deny what this man inspires in me. I'll do anything he asks…even help destroy the enemies from his past.

But he's hiding more than he's telling me.

When our love leads to tragedy, there's no going back. Gregory's past is trying to kill our future.

They say love can bring a person to their knees.

I've just proven that vengeful love is the strongest force of all.


The first book in the Vengeful Love series has a ton of suspenseful moments and steamy romance. I was pleasantly surprised with the major focus being on the families of both lead protagonists. Each family has its issues, both effecting the happiness of both leads and creating a challenge to move forward in their romance.

Vengeful Love follows Scarlett, a smart young lawyer who gets a big opportunity to work on a major deal with a large company. Scarlett isnt prepared to deal with the very young and very handsome CEO Gregory Ryans, who sees something in Scarlett he cant resist. But he needs something from her, he needs her help in taking over a company, but there are some secrets that he’s keeping. These secrets may effect not only their attraction to each other but also their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

Scarlett is a woman with a good head on her shoulders, she is smart, super hard working and knows how to do her job and does it well. She is assigned as the lead in a major deal, but she wasn’t expecting to fall for the CEO and be dragged into danger along with it. Scarlett is dealt with many heavy blows, she is trying to take care of her sick father, who isn’t getting any better, as well as the stress of what Gregory wants her to do, and then is targeted because of the deal she closes. I felt for her with her father, as I just lost my grandfather to Alzheimer, its hard to see someone you love forget who you are. I was glad she had Gregory to distract her but she also needed to find happiness for herself. But nothing comes easy for either Scarlett or Gregory.

Gregory is a big mystery at first, the deal he wants Scarlett to take on is not so simple and he has an ulterior motive. Even though I think what he does isnt terrible, he doesn’t really look at the risk of involving other people. In a way I felt it was selfish of him to put Scarlett in a dangerous position but I can also see that he was damaged because of this man.

Overall I enjoyed the character building and steamy romance, with the cliffhanger ending I’m not sure what damage is going to come out of what happened. I’m not a fan of cliffhangers but I liked the we got somewhat of a conclusion that I don’t feel angry over the ending. If your looking for an adrenaline driven plot and smoking hot romance, this is definitely one you should be reading.

Series: Vengeful Love #1

Release: March 21st 2016 by Carina Press

Laura is a lawyer by day, working for a global business law firm. By night, she puts pen to paper, writing about wealthy billionaires and sassy alpha females.

Laura grew up in England, UK and has spent a lot of time travelling the world. It was whilst she was living in Australia in 2009 that she began drafting her first novel (now safely in a drawer for a later date!).

In 2012, working as a lawyer in London, inspired by the blinding lights and corporate world, the writing bug bit Laura again. From a small bedroom in the city, Gregory Ryans and Scarlett Heath were born in the first book of the Vengeful Love trilogy.
