Book Review: Revenge by Lexi Blake

Revenge (Lawless #3)

Passion and danger collide in the latest contemporary romance featuring the Lawless siblings—from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake.

When Drew Lawless discovers a fatal flaw in his plan to avenge his parents’ deaths, he turns to the one woman he'd promised he wouldn't touch. He offers her a deal, one that will bring her into his investigation, his life, and his bed. 

Investigative reporter Shelby Gates never dreamed how twisted the case would become—or how fascinated she would be with Drew. Every day they spend together binds them. And every night brings her closer to realizing he might be the man for her. 

As Drew's feelings for Shelby grow, so does the danger. From the streets of Dallas to Austin’s high-tech business world, Drew and Shelby play a game begun twenty years before—a game they will win, or die trying.

This series is so much fun and after seeing Drew and Shelby bicker in book two, I could not wait to get my hands on their story in Revenge

Drew Lawless has given everything to protect his family after his parents were brutally murdered when they were young. When he discovered a secret that could destroy his siblings, he turns to the last women he should. Shelby has been digging into the Lawless murders and knows that she's close to finding something. So when Drew makes her a deal that could allow her to write a book about her findings, she knows she can't pass it up. But spending so much time with Drew has Shelby feeling things she should not be feeling for the nerdy, cold man. But Drew is also starting to feel things for the infuriating reporter and doesn't know if he can trust his heart with her and protect his family at the same time. 

This book picks up right where book two leaves off, so make sure you've read the previous two books in this series. What I love so much about this series is that while it does have a hot romance, there is also so much suspense and mystery between the murder of the Lawless siblings' parents. Who was really behind the murder? Who could they really trust? That all comes to a closure in this book and I loved watching Drew, the leader of the family, finally discover what really happened all those years ago. 

Since Shelby and Drew were hinted at in the previous book, I loved their banter and how much Shelby really challenged Drew. Drew was used to calling all the shots and never being denied, so it was fun watching Shelby put him in his place both romantically and with his life in general. Of course, they had hot, sizzling chemistry and their passion poured from the pages. I was a little bit disappointed with how things seemed to wrap up so quickly, specifically how we figured out what really happened and how the big climactic showdown went down. Other than that, though, this was such a satisfying conclusion to a suspenseful and passionate series!
