In this game of revenge,
She’ll meet her enemy at the altar…

Billionaire Gianni Rossi destroyed Issy Seymore’s family legacy…and it’s time for payback. Issy has a plan: she’ll get him onto a yacht headed for the Caribbean, distract him then take down his company!

Gianni has been onto Issy from the start, outmaneuvering her at every turn. But, as the heat between them rises, it’s the Italian who begins to feel out of his depth. To finally end the charade, he calls her bluff with an outrageous marriage proposal. Then Issy makes one last move—by saying yes!


Rich in strife and desire! The first book in the Billion-Dollar Revenge duo is fast paced and quick to snag a reader’s attention. I loved the characters and the back story of each and was invested in their happily ever after. I did feel like it wasn’t truly a stand-alone story though because we are left wondering about a lot having to do with her sister instead of having it play out in both books of the duet. I’m looking forward to reading the conclusion in the final book.

I was more drawn to Gianni and his success story with his cousin than I was in Issy’s revenge plot. I felt like he was successful after hardship and continued to work hard to gain the prestige he wants while she believes what she remembers from childhood without truly getting her facts straight. They complement each other with an intriguing storyline.
