4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Romcom about Revenge!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 22, 2022
When I saw this cover (and the title frankly) I knew I had to read it. I’m a sucker for a good, illustrated cover and this one is totally gorgeous and eye catching! Not only that, but I also love a revenge theme in a romcom so I knew this would be the perfect book for me! Would I recommend it? Absolutely! I’m actually surprised to see that the ratings here on goodreads are so low!

Right before her wedding Dani finds her fiancé with the realtor. Swearing off all men and intent on a little revenge Dani decides to build a spite house so that she can give her ex a taste of his own medicine. What she doesn’t realize is that the architect she hires to oversee the building (also her co-worker who she doesn’t care for in the beginning) may just work his way into her jaded heart…

I adored this romcom. While I wish it had a little more humor in it, I think it’s truly a great book to get lost in. It’s a gem! Why? Because not only is it a lighthearted read but it has depth as the emotional issues Dani is facing come through the pages. Readers can feel her pain and understand her need to take the issues she’s facing into her own hands. Not only that, but Wyatt is also a phenomenal male lead! I love how the author made him vulnerable through his Meniere’s disease. Authors who can make their characters realistic are ones I always come back to for more.
