Have you ever done something so completely unlike yourself that in retrospect all you can say is, “What the fuck was I thinking?”
Well, multiply that by about a thousand. At least. Yep. That should tell you something about my story.
I’d like to plead temporary insanity, but I can’t. I knew exactly what I was doing. The only problem was once I started, I couldn’t stop. I never knew until then how easily a person’s mind can become addicted to whatever their drug of choice might be.
Mine happened to be a man online. I’m married, and the man online was definitely not my husband.
Yeah. I’m some idiot.
As for the story itself, it’s a story of betrayal, arrogance, innocence lost, and heartbreak. It’s a story about how we never completely know a person—especially when it comes to ourselves.
Most of all, it’s a story about what can happen when you play with fire, not expecting to get burned.
Before you know it, the whole fucking house burns down.
Karma really can be a bitch—especially when it scores a willing partner.
Themes in this book: revenge, retribution, vigilante justice, internet affair, internet addiction.
The third book in the Avengement series. And WOW REVENGE at its best.
Cassie got pulled into the internet like you wouldn’t believe through lust, but it backfired on her. Her husband was wonderful but he did anything she wanted, I think he was a little to soft. She betrayed him yet he was there for her.
Of course the red heels came into play in this story again, love how it all came together at the end. Very good story by Caddy Rowland, definitely a good read.
The drama of humanity. We live, die, love, hate, win and lose in a never-ending variety of ways. Often those ways are heart-wrenching. Other times they are not.
Why do people make the choices they do? Why do some abuse power? How do the powerless learn to survive? Why do a few dare to be different, while others conform—and why are so many disturbed by those who don’t? These are the questions that have always haunted author Caddy Rowland. Those questions keep her pounding away at her keyboard, creating novels for adults who color outside the lines.
Caddy has always been a nonconformist. She likes to push the proverbial envelope when it comes to characterization and world building. Heroes have warts; villains have soft spots. Main characters don’t always learn their lessons because all too often we don’t, either. There isn’t always a happy ending, but sometimes there is. Otherwise she’d be predictable.
She writes for readers who like to think and feel; who like their stories to be raw, graphic, unpredictable, “real” and sometimes brutal. For readers who like their boundaries challenged; to be shown how rarely life decisions are truly black and white, but instead shades of grey.
Think of a carnival midway with books instead of rides. She asks you make sure you’re the minimum height if you plan on riding alone. You must also leave prejudices and inhibitions behind the entry gate. If you can’t, Rowland’s reads might be a tad much for you. Don’t worry. There are plenty of safer reads out there. Just step out of the line and find a more appropriate book for your reading enjoyment.
No, Caddy Rowland’s novels aren’t for everyone. But then again, they just might be for you.
