Review: Riske and Revenge by Natalie Wrye

Review: Riske and Revenge by Natalie Wrye

Love is the strongest emotion in the world…next to hate.

I knew hate. Had known it since I was seventeen. For me, it was love turned on its head, a product of hurt and fear—twisted, tied up…and placed on the sculpted shoulders of Ethan Riske.


Dayton, Tennessee.

Home to the best cow-tipping in the world, the biggest hot dogs, and the lousiest sex.

Or so I’d heard…

They were right about the first two. Ethan Riske proved them wrong about the third and at seventeen, he and I spent a summer under the stars, squeezing our way out of trouble, sweating and panting among the haystacks.

Until he left.

Nine years later, when a huge publishing house tries to buy my small press, I storm into the office of the CEO to find him.

Same cocky grin. Different name.

And suddenly all I can think about is exacting revenge on Ethan Riske for breaking his contract…and my heart.

But there’s someone who wants revenge even more than I do. As I begin to fall for the new Ethan, will the sins of the old one come back to haunt us?

My Review:
Genre: Romance – Second-Chance, Enemies-to-Lovers, Suspense
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Yes Book 1 of the Revenge Series
POV: Riske and Kat
Steam level: Warm

Riske and Revenge was an enthralling read that hooked me from the start. Part second-chance, part enemies-to-lovers with a hint of suspense that sneaks up on you. The elements of the mystery were well-done. I didn’t guess the perpetrator which, to me, is a story well-written. The underlying emotions of anger and betrayal from Riske leaving, the regret from Riske about leaving, and the fighting of feelings of love were so subtly ingrained it just seemed like part of the characters. I cannot wait to read more of Natalie Wrye (She’s new to me) and the rest of this series. If you’re looking for a second-chance, romantic suspense that is intriguing, emotional, and well-written then look no further. Pick up Riske and Revenge today.

I received a copy of this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Favorite Quotes:

  • I had forgotten how good it was to kiss him-how right. What was it about Ethan Riske that made everything else fall away.
  • I’m so sick of running from something. For the first time in my life, I wanna run towards something.
