About The Seduction of Revenge:Reid Emory has never had reason to question his luck with the ladies. As the owner of a lethal set of aqua-blue eyes and a devastating grin, this Hollywood heartthrob always brings his A game…but lately his luck seems to have run out. The actor is in need of some help, and there’s only one person he can trust to take his love life—and his career—to an explosive new level.
Jordan Litwright’s newest client is trying her patience. As a publicist, she’s more than content to stay in the background and let others shine. But when a publicity stunt backfires, she suddenly finds herself thrust into the spotlight—as Reid’s new love interest. And while other men usually overlook her, Reid is focusing in with laserlike intensity. There’s no denying they have serious chemistry.
But once Reid breaks into the big time, can they turn their made-for-the-media romance into a forever love?
Oh, Reid. What Grandma did to you…
Once again, this series toed the line between ridiculous and too ridiculous so well.
Aaaaand it had Broadway, which makes everything better.
I had no idea this Phantom of the Opera fantasy was a thing, and I kind of love it. I mean, I knew Leslie Knope loved him:
But I didn’t realize it was other people, too. She also thinks Ben Wyatt has an elf butt…and likes it. So I don’t always relate to her turn-ons.
Back to the main point (which relates pretty well to Leslie Knope, actually), this book was ridiculous in the best way.
I’m using that word a lot, but it really just fits so perfectly.
Reid is traumatized, paranoid, and confused about life post-grandma.
Jordan is a hot mess, but no one knows it.
Those are two fucking interesting sounding characters.
And when it comes to her hair, I can relate.
I love Rachel Van Dyken comedies so, so hard. Maybe more than the dramatics reads now. One day soon I’ll actually pee my pants, and then I’m sure my feelings will change due to my own trauma.
My favorite things:
1. I love how much Grandma’s presence was felt in a book she didn’t even show up with. But ah, Grandma is everywhere, around Reid’s every corner.
2. Max really is the star of this series, and I love it. I’ve cast him as Adam Pally, partially because of the character name and partially because the words just feel right. But he’s so prominent in the books he’s not even the hero of. Everyone’s favorite comic relief.
3. Jordan and Reid were so cute together. Especially in scenes like filming the web series. Or the end. Or any time they had a conversation.
