REVIEW: Bittersweet Revenge by J.L.Beck


Book Title: Bittersweet Revenge

Author: J.L. Beck

(Only 99 Cents) Purchase Link: Amazon 



I’m a slut. Or at least that’s what everyone calls me. I guess that’s what you get when everyone think’s you’ve slept with the whole football team and then some.
My junior year of high school I gave my heart to Corey Winchester. He was handsome, cocky, and a pure gentlemen. Then everything changed in an instant. When I found out he was spreading malicious rumors about me, after I refused to sleep with him I was utterly surprised. To add to it, he broke up with me in front of the whole school. I essentially became the laughing stock of the town. People that I once called my friends became my enemies. Finding a way to ruin my life one day at a time. Now the shitty part is I should have known a pretty boy like him was too good to be true. After ruining my reputation and life I did everything I could to stay under the radar, but it just wasn’t enough. I slowly learned that all the torment, and hate was all for one thing. Revenge. That’s what Corey wanted, and why I didn’t know. Then Rex Winchester came along. Corey’s cousin, and someone I knew I shouldn’t be getting close with. A whole six feet of hotness, a smile that melted the panties off of every girl in a fifty mile radius, and a heart of gold. He could have anyone he wanted, so why he chose me Corey’s ex, the bullied, slutty girl was beyond me. All I knew was that I wanted him. I wanted him more than anything. The problem was, I couldn’t tell if Rex, was just like Corey or if his intentions were as innocent as he was making them out to be.
My names Jenna Haines, and this is the story of how the one thing I wanted.. turned out to be the one thing that would hurt me the most. What happens when the one thing you least expect to happen, does? When all the lies and secrets come out. Well you’re about find out.

My Review


Jenna Rae Hanes is about to embark on her final year of high-school. Usually this would be an exciting time for any teen, but not for Jenna. Her high-school career has become a living hell, filled with lies and bullying brought on my the one and only Corey Winchester, her ex. She is now known as the school slut.

Corey Winchester is the “man” at school, he is good-looking, comes from wealth, and nobody wants to get on his bad side. He is one nasty piece of work and is hellbent on making Jenna’s life hell. When his cousins come to stay with his family, one seems to find Jenna to be irresistible.

Rex Winchester is as hot as they come and sweet. You wouldn’t think he was born in the same family as Corey. He is taken by Jenna and will do whatever he can to make her happy, even if he has to go against his own family.

Secrets that have been hidden in the dark come to light and Jenna must decide who to trust while piecing everything together.

I thought this was a good quick read. The title of this series fits this book perfectly and you will find out why whenever you read it. The end was not what I expected and the epilogue sets up the next book nicely. As with many novellas, I feel that the story was a little rushed but it didn’t keep me from getting sucked right in. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
