Every man who meets 26-year-old Rosie Matchall falls for her, a fact that doesn't bother Rosie in the least. She enjoys one night stands, but relationships - well, they just aren't for her. Particularly when she has men throwing themselves at her feet.

Her 'love-em'and-leave-em' dating tactics, however, are beginning to worry her upper-class parents, who are convinced she has some sort of addiction. So when Rosie sets off to New York on a holiday with a man she barely knows, her mother is predictably unimpressed.

Worse still, when Rosie drops her date the moment she arrives in NYC, her parents decide that enough is enough, and cut her off without a penny. Stranded in New York, Rosie is at a loss for what to do, until the dashing Alex Clunes approaches her with an unusual job offer.

Acting as the bait in his 'Revenge Dating' service, Rosie is paid to bring errant men to their knees and make them suffer as they have made their partners suffer. But Rosie is soon to discover that revenge takes all forms, and when she least expects it, someone finally manages to rock her world - in the worst possible way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unrealistic and predictable 23 Feb. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot of this book was entirely predictable and as others have said, there were several typos which makes the book appear amateurish. There were several points that were simply ill thought through and entirely impossible - going to Paris for lunch from New York? How would that work then, if it was 10.30 am in New York when the idea was suggested, it is a 6 hour or so flight to Paris, plus Paris is 6 hours ahead of New York, meaning that even if the flight set off the moment the idea was suggested (unlikely), they still would not arrive in Paris until at least 10.30pm, but presumably much later having factored in time to get to the plane, time to get the plane prepared for an impromptu trans-atlantic flight, approval of the route by air traffic control etc etc etc.

Overall, the book reads as though it has been written by a teenager. I found myself losing patience with it and only finished it because it had been paid for. If it had been a free book, it would have been relegated to the "archive" long before the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story, but it needs proofreading! 20 Oct. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this book entertaining, it was funny and light-hearted. However, there are quite a lot of errors (wrong words used, incorrect spelling, words missing etc.) - possibly the best example of this is when the author refers to consciousness students rather than conscientious students. I think this book would benefit from being proofread, but I still would buy the author's next book, as I like the stories she comes up with.

4.0 out of 5 stars A short, fun read 19 Aug. 2012
By Cianta
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the idea for this short story and usually ignore the odd typo; unfortunately there were so many that what should have been an easy, comfortable read was instead stilted and irritating when not only grammatical and spelling errors popped up but even occasionally wrong entire words!

It took me about two hours to read the entire story which, although a little predictable, I found fun and un-put-down-able. Without giving too much away I'm happy that Rosie - the annoying main character - was given a dose of reality before the happy conclusion of the story.

For what I paid, I'm happy and would read another book by this author - and hopefully there wouldn't be so many typos again! At least now I've been reminded never to rely on a computer for spell-checking!

1.0 out of 5 stars Revenge Read? 25 Jan. 2012
By Mel
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the worst books I have ever read. I downloaded about 3 weeks ago and it has more typos than one would think possible - probably the transfer from paper book to ebook, but even so, it was very distracting.

Storyline implausible (no, there really is no *one* woman every man wants to shag), characters dull and one dimensional, plot predictable (even though entirely unrealistic) and no development of the story.

Only plus point is that it was so basic I managed to read it over two nights, it was more like a magazine short story than a book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Light confectionery but full of spelling mistakes 12 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I couldn't decide whether to read this or not and then it came down in price to under a pound and I thought that I would give a go. I made the wrong choice. It sounded like a fun plot line, but in practice the story was so shallow that it was infuriating. The twist was obvious early on and since there was no character development the final HEA was unfortunately completely unbelievable. The poor spelling was an added irritant (some possibly a result of spellcheck guessing the wrong version).

1.0 out of 5 stars Where is the romance and humour I was promised?? 11 Dec. 2011
By K
Format:Kindle Edition
The Revenge Date seemed to be a promising read.

Lots of opportunity for a bit of girly humour and general romantic fun. I could have even gotten over the many typos but alas, there were several elements that took the story in a completely different direction from the fun 'romantic comedy' it was supposed to be.

From the offset I got that the main character Rosie was into sex (and lots of it). I really didn't see why the author had to be so candid about Rosie's sexual exploits throughout the book. In fact I don't think I ever warmed to liked her character and her unwarranted arrogance. She was supposedly gorgeous but seriously, there are lots of gorgeous girls out there who aren't selfish sluts with no direction in life. Would it kill the author to give her some depth? Even if she started off as a horrible person, the character Rosie needed to grow through the book and from what I read, she didn't. Did she ever really find a life direction in the end btw? I don't think so!

Anyway, there were just too many little deviating, confusing story lines that ultimately sums up to be a story about finding love although I didn't get any romantic connection between her and her love interest, Alex, other than her private lust for him and a few conversations in which he doesn't seem to be interested in her sexually.

What a short, weird book with an abrupt 'The End'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, and Cute Easy-To- Read Romcom. 25 Oct. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I really liked this book because it was easy to read and the story line had me turning page after page. I enjoyed the shocks and stumbles across the story but I did feel it was a little short and was hoping for more! I also found it hard to warm to the main character as she wasnt the nicest of people. However well worth the pennies that I paid for it and would recommend to anyone wanting a short easy to read rom-com.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 22 Oct. 2011
By Kate528
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved the book, it's fast, funny and entertaining. The only down side was that it's short ~ it only took a few hours to read and there was real scope to add more. Definitely would recommend.
