Title: Entry-Level Mistress
Author: Sabrina Darby
Available: Barnes and Noble | Kobo | The Book Depository | Powell's
From the Publisher: Daniel Hartmann and Emily Anderson have every reason to hate each other. Her father destroyed the lives of his parents and he in turn sent her father to jail. Now Daniel's a successful billionaire and artsy Emily is his newest employee. Both of them intend to make the other pay for the sins of the past, but revenge has never been so sweet.
I really enjoyed this book despite its similarities to the TV show Revenge (main characters named Emily and Daniel, and Emily wants revenge because her father was framed by Daniel). Honestly, if the characters had different names, I probably wouldn’t have noticed the similarities quite so much.
But despite those similarities, I read the book fairly quickly and got most of the things from it that I want in a good romance.
Alpha male? Check.
Strong female? Check.
Steamy passion that nearly burns your fingers when you turn the page? Check!
Daniel was your stereotypical rich playboy who doesn’t settle down – but every girl hopes she’ll be the one to change him. And this is the story about how he finds someone to settle with.
These are the best kinds of stories! These are the stories that teach us to want the fairy tale and the unattainable man. But that’s okay. Honestly, it is! Realism has its place in fiction sometimes, but not often in a good romance.
If you like ABC’s Revenge, you’ll definitely like this one. But even more so, if you like a good romance, you’ll love it!
What Others Are Saying:
- The Book Addict: So, overall, the book was okay, but not spectacular for me. I wish there’d been more drama and actual revenge-getting moments than what we got.
- Marie Reads and Reviews: I enjoyed the book, but the story behind the story – what happened with their parents to cause Emily’s curiosity and thoughts of revenge– was a little confusing. Overall, it was a good read.
- Momma Romance: It was a good read but I felt that the actual revenge was a bit lacking. I was really hoping for more angst and suspicion….more of the “will she or won’t she” moments. And the story felt a little forced because of it.
