Revenge Love – Kata Čuić

Revenge is sweet. 
Emma Hastings has tried all her life to fit in. Throwing off her awkward high school years to become a member of a prestigious sorority at Wellbridge University, she has her sisters at her side, and the future spread out before her for the taking. Her senior year of college should be filled with parties, studying, and sweating between the sheets before she goes to medical school. 
One night at a party changes everything. Dominoes collapse as quickly as they’re erected. Suddenly, everyone has something to gain and everything to lose. 
Love is sweeter. 
Jason Gould will never fit in, so he doesn’t even try. Content to stay on the periphery of society, he works hard, plans for his future, and keeps to himself. His senior year should be filled with early morning shifts, gym sessions to keep his pent-up anger under control, and readying himself to face the rest of his life alone. 
One ray of sunshine refuses to let him fall into darkness. Emma won’t leave his side no matter what is thrown at them. 
When a woman who is dying to fit in joins forces with a man who never will, they just may find they fit together in ways neither could have ever imagined, and they’ll discover a life well loved is the sweetest revenge of all.

I’d like to thank L. Woods PR for sending me an e-arc of this, so I have never read from this author before but the description totally drew me in and I was really curious about this book. It is nothing like I have ever read before and I felt so many conflicting feelings throughout reading this book and it was very interesting.

Emma the main character for the first like half of this book I really didn’t like her. She was just so annoying. At times she was all about herself and she just wanted to be loved which I can understand. She’s very insecure which really bugged me because she had no need to be so insecure and she always felt like she wasn’t enough which got very obsessive at times. Around halfway through I actually started to like Emma whether it was because she started to get stronger and finally take control what was happening in her life and I loved that!

Jason he was also another character I hated until halfway through this book, he was so self-pitying about his face and it got annoying. But halfway through I fell in love with his character and I have no idea why which was just amusing.

I loved the banter between Jason and Emma, although at times I really did think some of what he said was hurting especially for making her feel like she’s fat. Although that being said it also felt like school child pulling pigtails in the playground. I loved the relationship that it turned into and I was completely invested in their relationship.

Rosie really was a toxic friendship, like the stuff she pulled in this book I was just like no that is a terrible friendship, although I loved how she tried to play matchmaking between Jason and Emma. But other than that she was a terrible friend to both Emma and Jason and I actually hated her character.

Kieran is a bloody joke with his jealousy, he is Emma’s ex-bed buddy, and the jealousy through this book was a joke. He’d make out he didn’t want her but the moment she showed interest in Jason he wanted her. He’d treat her like complete and utter shit. So every time he was jealous I was just like you stupid noob.

I don’t want to go into the plot of this book because I didn’t know much so you should go into it like that, but this book was amazing. I was unsure whether I liked this or not like through the book I kept changing my mind, in the end, I decided I loved it. The book had perfectly flawed characters.
