Revenge by Lexi Blake….Release Day Blitz & Review



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 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.

Shelby brushed her lips against his, her whole body seeming to come to life. His lips were soft, his hands tight. He was enveloping her and she was completely defenseless against him.

She wrapped her arms around him as the kiss deepened, and suddenly she didn’t want to play it safe anymore. She’d been in her shell for so long and she wanted to come out of it, wanted to feel again. She dragged her tongue over his lower lip, and it seemed to awaken the beast in Drew.

He took over, the kiss going from sweet to carnal in an instant. His mouth opened, tongue sliding over hers and dominating with strength and a sensuality she’d never come across before. He kissed her long and hard, his hands molding to the curves of her body. Over and over again his tongue danced with hers. Never before had a kiss seemed so effortless. It was like they’d been kissing forever.

For a man who claimed he was socially awkward, he sure could kiss like a god.

It was getting out of hand, but she didn’t care. Nothing mattered except getting more of him. She could feel his cock under her, hardening, lengthening, getting ready for what it was meant to do. He could ease her back against the table, pull off her jeans and panties. It would be incendiary, like a rocket going off, an explosion she couldn’t contain. She could feel herself getting soft and wet and ready for him, as though her body had recognized its natural mate and wasn’t taking no for an answer.

“See, I told you we have chemistry.” His words rumbled along her lips.

She couldn’t argue with him. The world around them seemed hazy and unreal. There was nothing except his touch and scent and the sight of his eyes looking at her like he could eat her up. She knew she should stop him, knew it was getting out of control, but she couldn’t find the will. It had been so damn long since she wanted something she could actually have.

She wanted him.

Shelby let her fingers sink into his hair, drawing him back down. Breakfast could wait. She needed more of him.




Revenge is the third book in the Lawless series and this one surrounds Drew.  Drew is a tech genius and the very reason his family is together today.  I am probably one of the few who was quite excited for this book.  If you’ve read the previous two books, you will totally understand why I am in the minority on this.  If you haven’t – first off, don’t read this book and second, let’s just say he doesn’t have the best social skills.

As I said, Drew is a tech genius; he’s the best coder in the world.  But he’s also used his abilities and also his connections to hunt down the killer of his parents.  And because of this, Drew doesn’t know how to really socialize and talk to people in general.  He analyzes things and then comes up with plan to either fix it or remove the issues altogether.  His family is everything to him and it’s always been his duty to take care of them.

Shelby came across Drew when she started looking into his parents’ death.  Shelby is a brilliant investigative reporter.  She doesn’t stop when she hits a dead end and she has great instincts that have helped her undercover some things that not even Drew came across.  And when she started poking in places Drew did not want her to, he did was he does best – remove the problem. So when Drew comes to her with a plan and a NDA agreement, she is really pushed outside her boundaries but can’t say no for so many reasons.

Shelby and Drew were a perfect match.  She helped him stay grounded and showed him that he took needs to be looked after.  He gave her the affection, love and protection that she thought she never attain.  The chemistry is off the charts and the build up is great.  The scenes were explosive, however, there were not too many, which is worked in this case because of the anticipation and sexual tension.

Lexi does a great job of giving us more twist and surprises in this book that will keep you right there at the edge.  While I enjoyed the ending, I really wanted an epilogue – this is the end of the series.  But that didn’t take away from anything.  Another fabulous read from Lexi Blake!
