1. Not telling the truth; lying.

2. Based on lies.



At the young, naive age of twenty-three, Alex Lewis believed in the deepness of his love and the strength of his marriage to, Libby, his teenage sweetheart. Married for three years, but struggling financially to keep a roof over their heads, Alex thought his wife would stand by him till the bitter end. But she didn’t. His world crashed down around him.



Fast forward seven years, we meet Alex Lewis again. In the time since his divorce, he has matured significantly. Now the founder and domineering CEO of A L Investments, a multimillion-pound Investment and Management Company, he couldn’t be more different. The high-flying career he has managed to carve conceals a raw and vulnerable side just under the surface. The scars from his ill-fated marriage run deep, leaving him distant, cold, and alone.

So when his path with Libby crosses and an opportunity for revenge presents itself, Alex jumps at the offer. His mind is determined to make Libby feel the pain he has suffered over the last seven years… but his heart and conscience are fiercely battling against him.

The love of his life is back once again, but who can win in this mendacious game of revenge?

(18+ This book is intended for mature readers. Strong language and graphic sex scenes)

Excerpt #1

But what can I say? I’m Alex Lewis after all. The multi-millionaire with a jackhammer-sized cock. There’s not a woman alive that doesn’t want a piece of this. And that’s the fucking problem. I don’t want any of them.
All because of one girl. She ruined everything by burning her mark deep inside my chest. She was the girl I’d trusted with my life, and in return, royally fucked me over. I had decided there and then I’d never let it happen again. Every move would be calculated precisely. Each encounter would be strategised to perfection.

 

Excerpt #2

Libby.
Damn.
Libby.
Shit.
Libby.
Fuck.
I’m going to see my ex-wife after almost seven years. I have a million questions plaguing my already overwhelmed mind. What does she look like? Is she still the same? How will she react when she sees me?
The world feels like it’s about to drop out of my arse, but I’m holding onto the welcome knowledge that I’ve got the upper hand in all this. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s signed up for business suicide with this deal.
And I’m smug as fuck.
Monday is when the plan commences and Libby learns exactly who thenew Alex Lewis is, and I’m going to enjoy every fucking minute of it. I’m sure she’ll be kicking herself when she sees me, and maybe even more when she realises what I have in store for her.

REVIEW

Revenge is sweet but when you go up against your heart and an unexplained past you are holding a losing hand. With everyond in Alex and Libby life having an opinion and wanting to protect their respective friend and family member things get messy and bonds are broken. In the end the final say in between the two that has everything to lose, Alex and Libby.

Being a workaholic cost Alex the love of his life and engraved grief and hatred in the hearts of many but when he is faced the a business deal that can supply him answers and control and learns there is more. Not expecting old feeling to surface Alex learns that Libby is holding the ace but not in the form that has him trusting none and punching his best friend. This was a good read about second chances and building from a past of miscommunication. I was happy Alex followed his own agenda when it came to SB. I found myself wanting Holli to get slapped for being a jealous brat and the rat being left with nothing. A girl could dream right.

Beth delivered a nice romance built on lies of omission and intention. A lesson learned from everyone in the story that led to a wonderful ending.
