Laura’s Review: Scandal In Seattle (Great Exploitations #2) – Nicole Williams

Revenge isn’t what the Eves are about. Justice is.

But when Sienna Stevens leaves Miami for her Errand in Seattle as Ally Andrews, revenge is the only thing on her mind. A woman scorned is one thing, but Ally is something else altogether. She will not rest until the man who upended her world is brought to his personal and financial knees. She won’t settle for just upending his world in return. She’s going for full-blown annihilation.

Ally’s barely in Seattle a day before complications arise. She begins making slips. She’s one error away from being pulled from the biggest Errand of her career when she comes face to face with Henry Callahan. Former lover. Current Target.

Things just went from complicated to catastrophic.

There is just something about this series that is crazy addictive and smart that I can never get enough!

Just like the first one, this book was incredibly well written, with an amazing ability to completely suck you in to the story making it feel longer than it actually was. I could feel the story and main character opening up so much more in this book than in the first one, really getting in to the coming story.

In this book we finally learn that the main character’s real name is in fact Eve (a little ironic considering her job description). Picking up where MISCHIEF IN MIAMI left off, she is on her way to catch the big fish, the 10 that will make her enough money to finally stop being an Eve. However, things don’t go exactly as planned as Eve finds out that the 10 is in fact her cheating ex-fiance Henry and she’s not the only one hired to catch him.

Life is change. Or is it, change is life?

For me it’s the latter. Change is the essence of my life. It is the origin of my present and the promise of my immediate future.

One day, that’s going to change.

As Eve starts to work on getting revenge on Henry through her work, we begin to see a different side to her. Never letting anything get to her before, working with him proves harder than she first thought as although the hatred and pain over what he did pushes her, past memories keep popping up, which made me question how this part of the story will progress and if the pair will end up back together… which would just lead to even more questions!

Henry is completely charming in this book and with that, and through flashbacks you can totally see why Eve was with him in the first place. I can’t help but think that because of this she is going to get sucked back in. She is so far off the spectrum that she can’t see that she won’t be able to pull it off, and even if she did, he knows who she is and could hold her responsible IF things actually do go as planned.

He’d always been good with words. However, that wasn’t my first rodeo with Henry Callahan, and I knew all of his tricks. Neither his words nor the way he said them would make my breath catch ever again.

I find the whole concept of this series amazing and only wish the books were longer so I didn’t have to keep waiting for the rest of the story. Nicole Williams’ writing style completely sinks you in so that before you know it, you’ve finished the book and your desperate for the next one. I cannot recommend these books enough, they are short, light reads, with a killer story that stays with you!

5 stars!
