Betrayal, Revenge and Sex...oh my!! This really is an excellent book!! I've read a couple other SBs and was disappointed...this definitely changes my opinion....I'm going to try some others. This is a fairly long book (549p) but I flew through it! (even neglected my other read! lol) It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time...for both stories....and the way she weaves them together...PERFECT!! I highly recommend this book!
This is my first Sandra Brown book. I am not sure why, but have not previously been drawn to her. However, that has changed after reading Envy. Super characters, suspense, great story. Enjoyed to the very end.
