VENGEANCE is an intriguing second book in the series, especially for me. Intriguing because there aren't a lot of books that follow a couple after their HEA, and rarer for me, because I don't think I've ever read one. In this, VENGEANCE was a pleasant surprise, because the intrigue plot was compelling in that I couldn't put the book down, and the romance was satisfying. This book makes you believe in true love.
Layla is a strong heroine. While I wouldn't want anyone to be in her shoes, she kicked ass even when she was kidnapped. I can't imagine how terrifying it must be, but she didn't waste her time crying. Instead, she came up with a plan to save her child, no matter the consequences. Cyrus on the other hand, was devastated when he learned what happened to his wife, yet he did what must be done to save her.
I'm not sure how accurate the details were, but Belle Ami wrote convincingly and her story was peppered with enough details to lend it accuracy. (I'm no expert; it's just a feeling reading the story gave me.) The story didn't end with Layla's rescue (was there any doubt?), but it also dealt with the aftermath, especially in light of Layla's ordeal. And in this, I have to applaud the author for the authenticity of Layla's feelings and how the couple dealt with them.
VENGEANCE is the second book in the series, but you don't have to read the first in order to enjoy this story.
Overall, VENGEANCE is a compelling, high-octane suspense/thriller, with a dollop of realistic romance.
