Review-Sweet Revenge by Olivier Lafont









   

Sweet Revenge 
by 
Olivier Lafont 

FROM THE AUTHOR OF WARRIOR,  ANOTHER BOOK, ANOTHER GENRE - A ROMANCE. 






Blurb 
If revenge was a dish best served cold, then French Adonis Guy Leguerec knew exactly what to serve treacherous and desirable Eve Watson… 

Seven years after Louisiana, where Eve devastated his heart and ruthlessly wiped out his future, Guy finds her in Boston opening her first art showing. Now a wealthy and powerful shipping magnate, Guy lures Eve into his trap of seduction and opulence, intent on one thing only: getting revenge for her crimes. 

When American artist Eve Watson sees the only man she ever loved enter the art gallery, and re-enter her life, she feels helpless terror and frenzied desire. Seven years ago Guy Leguerec had seduced her heart, exploited her body, and then discarded her. Against her better judgment she accepts his invitation, and once again they spiral into a maelstrom of irresistible passion, divinely rampant sex, and the brutal politics of unknown intentions… 

Violently sundered by their volatile misconceptions, Eve flees Boston in emotional tatters, and Guy grudgingly lets her vanish, his revenge thwarted. 

But destiny has planned otherwise: Eve has taken an art job in Paris, ignorant of the fact that the company is one of many subsidiary businesses belonging to Guy. Flung together again in an even more precarious position, Eve and Guy must war with each other and themselves, and confront seven years of misapprehension and malign manipulation. Greed, family vendetta, and deception have eaten away at the intimacy they once shared — 

But is the truth enough to save their desperate, shipwrecked love?

Review :         

  Sweet Revenge – the name itself was tempting for me to read.

          The story is about Eve and Guy, who were once madly in love with each other but their relationship ends abruptly due to a small misunderstanding created by someone who didn’t wanted Guy to succeed. What I loved about Sweet revenge is the way it is written, plots intertwined and the way all the misunderstandings gets cleared in end to have a happy ending. What struck me was a fact which we usually see in our day to day life; a lie told by third person creates a whole lot of misunderstanding between 2 lovers and they drift apart only to come face-to-face after 7 years in strange circumstances.

          Simple love story, with a background of art, spiced with a dash of misunderstanding and lie, Sweet Revenge is one love story which I loved to read and couldn’t stop reading till I finished. This is 1st time is read Olivier Lafont, having always seen him on screen; I loved the way he has written Sweet Revenge and would love to read more of his writings.
