Great Review of Heavenly Revenge

Review of Heavenly Revenge

I’d love you to check out Lisa Adam’s Blogspot, Pen the Dream. She’s written a great review of Heavenly Revenge and has explained the difference between erotica and erotic romance very well.

Here’s part of her review:

The Plot:

And here comes the unusual. Our heroine is dead. Yep, you heard me. And I’m not giving away anything here because you figure that out in the first two pages of the book. But, she wasn’t supposed to die yet. Heaven’s not ready for her. So, she has two choices. Hang around Earth haunting people, including her cheating-ex, or go live life in an alternate universe and save the world. Um… hello? Bad-ass chick check… SAVE THE WORLD!
The hero? An arrogant king, who is at war with neighbors and believes her to be a spy. Can we say punishment 🙂

The Verdict:

I’m really on the fence about this one. The ending was spectacular. An assured happily ever after and what not. But the first meeting of this pair is rather rough and hard to take. The first sexual encounter happens early in the book, but it isn’t under the best of terms. There was that moment that I almost put the book down because I thought it was too close to unwanted sex. (I’m so glad I didn’t!) In fact the heroine keeps telling him to stop & he keeps persisting until finally she gives in and he has his way with her. Now, she enjoys every bit of it & even urges him to continue. The games continue throughout the rest of the book, and it is an enthralling read, but that first scene was rough. So, I’ve thought a lot about it and I have to say this is….

Another little excerpt from Heavenly Revenge. The story started a few posts ago. Just go back there, if you’re not sure what the story is about. :)

Still cuddled within Lily’s soft arms, Rose glanced around with wonder. “I’m…really dead?”

Wilma nodded, and Lily hugged her harder.

“How do you know about me?”

Lily backed away from Rose but still clung to her hands. “We’ve always known about you, my dear. It was terrible when your parents died. You were so young.”

Wilma’s eyes softened. “We were proud of you, Rose, always. After such a dreadful start in life, to emerge so strong and talented is a credit to you.”

“When you won your scholarship to the Conservatory,” Lily said, smiling, “I thought I’d burst with pride. But then…”

Drawing her hands away from Lily’s, Rose finished her sentence. “But then I met Josh.” Sympathetic silence ensued as she remembered what she now knew were the last moments of her life.

On stage, as she’d waited for Joshua, she’d stared out at the empty seats, to be filled that night with eager, music-loving bodies. The famous orchestra, presumably minus the lead violin, tuned up behind her. But the billboards outside screamed only two names—Joshua Davis and Rosalind Harris. She and Josh had come a long way since meeting up at the Conservatory. He played the piano superbly, and she played the flute brilliantly. A match made in heaven.

Josh. God, she’d been such an easy mark for him. A sucker. Straight out of school. A virgin. She’d fallen for every one of his lies. The biggest one being that he loved her.

Hurt and that terrible agony had clutched at her again. She had stared at Josh in silent horror as she absorbed his cruel words. He had stepped into his jeans and, with difficulty, zipped them. A roll of fat spilled over the waistband. She’d never noticed that before.

“I mean,” he had continued, a sneer marring the boyish handsomeness of his face, “for God’s sake, look at you. The only time you don’t wear track pants and a T-shirt is when you’re up on stage performing. And look at your hair—always shoved underneath that stupid baseball cap.”

She’d lost the ability to breathe. Her mouth dry, she had stammered, “But…I thought…you said you loved me.”

Josh had rolled his eyes. “For God’s sake, Rose, grow up. We had sex. That’s all it was.”

She was proud of her response. It had been dignified. Aloof. “I’ll see you up on stage in a minute. You’re still not getting the introduction right, and the start of the third movement, when you come in with the orchestra, sounds terrible.”

He was lucky she hadn’t flown at him and gouged great runnels down his sneering, arrogant face.

As Rose became aware of her surroundings once more, she felt the moisture trickling from her eyes and fiercely wiped her face with the back of her hand. She hadn’t cried since she was a child. With her lips pursed, Wilma seemed to find something on the ground absorbing. But Lily, her eyes also brimming with tears, reached for Rose and enclosed her in a soft, comforting embrace.

“He was a bastard, wasn’t he?” Rose whispered, resting her head against Lily’s chubby shoulder.

Lily nodded vehemently. “Yes dear—though we don’t like to use that word here.”
