Romance Book Review: Samantha Darling's Revenge in Rio
In her debut book, Samantha Darling introduces the classic revenge plan storyline. Luca was dumped by his fiance, Daniella, for his brother years before. Now his brother is dead and he plans to get even with even with Daniella for breaking his heart. Of course it won't be as easy as he plans and he has to remind himself that she hurt him and he wants to hurt her as much as she hurt him.
Daniella hasn't had the easiest of times in the past five years since she let Luca go. His brother was not the man Luca thought he was. Now she is seven months pregnant and Luca doesn't want to let her out of his sight and she can't help but want him all over again.
Samantha Darling has a nice voice throughout the story with strong characters, even if it is a tired storyline. It will be interesting to see where her next story takes her.
Calculated revenge, unexpected passion…
Business magnate Luca Venancio is returning to Rio to pay his respects to his late brother, and to seduce his once fiancée, Daniella, back into his bed. Five years ago she left him without so much as a word, shunning him and the rich life he could offer in exchange for his younger, reckless brother. Now Luca wants revenge—seduce her and dump her, that's all he intends to do.
Blackmailed into a violent farce of a marriage, Daniella had no choice but to comply to protect Luca's life, even though it meant never being able to see him again. Years later, a twist of fate reunites them, throwing her plans of fleeing Rio out of the window and the love of her life straight back in.
Luca's flawless plan soon becomes complicated when he discovers Daniella is expecting his brother's child. It becomes even more complicated when old passions return. Can he actually go through with seducing her, bedding her, and then discarding her?
