3.5 Stars Which May Go Up As Series Progresses

TITLE~ Revenge
AUTHOR~ J.J. Knight

SYNOPSIS~ (From Goodreads)

Jess moves to LA for her dream job as a music intern. On her first day, she bumps into Dylan busking on a street corner.
Dylan Wolf has a gritty voice. His eyes are soulful. His incredible body is to die for, tattoos and all.
When Dylan looks at Jess, she feels emotions she's never had before. He can be sweet, but his dark moods scare her. When he sings, the whole world falls away.
Jess and Dylan's meeting hasn't gone unnoticed. At her job, Jess is summoned to the mysterious ninth floor. Her new assignment is to get close to Dylan. By seducing him.
Jess is shocked. She's an innocent girl.
Selling her body would be immoral. It would be wrong.
But strange things are happening at the company. No matter which decision she makes, she might be in danger.
One thing is for sure: If she takes this assignment, Jess will never be the same.


I was provided with an arc for review.
I'm torn over leaving a 3.5 rating on this book, really. I'm almost positive I will feel it deserves a much higher rating as the series continues on. I did enjoy the story and I loved the characters even if I didn't necessarily get Dylan. He surprised me towards and in the end.  However, there were way too many stones left un-turned and it left me reeling a bit trying to figure out what was going on. At the same time though, that's the appeal of reading the next book! I'm normally not a fan of reading books this short (136 pages), but I did enjoy it! It was well written in the grammatical sense and a very intriguing start to what will likely prove to be a great series!
