I fell in love with this story from the get go.
I turned out to be a lot more than I was expecting to say the least. It was an easy, fun read that had relatable characters, a realistic plot and great, fun writing.
It did get a little clichéd at times but I thought it added to the story as a whole and sort of balanced out the times when it got a little more on the upsetting side...when things weren't going the character's way!
Her Perfect Revenge can be perfectly described as an emotional rollercoaster. It had a great mix of everything; anger, happiness, frustration. You could feel everything that the characters were supposed to feel it was portrayed that well.
Plus it was so much more than just the average love story. The protagonist (Christina) sets out to get revenge on Bill who had played a cruel prank on her in high school. But it doesn't work out that way. Even though what is going to happen in the end is pretty much determined from the start, it takes a looooong time to get there and said time is full of ups and downs that is not expected. There were more than a few surprises.
I have to mention Bill's father, William Havenwood Sr. He was an absolute blast to read. I think he made the whole story to be honest. Every time he popped up in the story I couldn't help but grin at one thing or another.
I really do recommend this book. It's a light-hearted, fun, dramatic read that has something in it for everyone.
