Jess moves to LA for her dream job as a music intern. On her first day, she bumps into Dylan busking on a street corner.
Dylan Wolf has a gritty voice. His eyes are soulful. His incredible body is to die for, tattoos and all.
When Dylan looks at Jess, she feels emotions she’s never had before. He can be sweet, but his dark moods scare her. When he sings, the whole world falls away.
Jess and Dylan’s meeting hasn’t gone unnoticed. At her job, Jess is summoned to the mysterious ninth floor. Her new assignment is to get close to Dylan. By seducing him.
Jess is shocked. She’s an innocent girl.
Selling her body would be immoral. It would be wrong.
But strange things are happening at the company. No matter which decision she makes, she might be in danger.
One thing is for sure: If she takes this assignment, Jess will never be the same.
Revenge is a great introduction to a 5-part series by J.J. Knight. The story starts off introducing Jess, the heroine of this story. She is a country girl, having just moved to L.A., a little naïve, just walking around and exploring her new neighborhood. When, lo and behold, she comes across a musician busking on the street. The first meeting between Jess and Dylan is electric. From the get go there is a strong chemistry that develops between Jess and Dylan, that just leaves the readers wondering were these two characters will end up in future installments.
From this starting point we are introduced to other characters that we will hopefully see again in future installments. One of my favorite characters was Nick, a disgruntled co-worker of Jess’ at an indie music label. The interaction between Nick and Jess was nice. There was some tension between them, which has possibility of going someplace. I also love the way that music was described.
“Music is the only form of magic in this world, except maybe for love.”
I hope this is a theme that will continue, because I thought it was one of Jess’ stronger traits.
When you are reading this book you have to take into consideration that it is part of a series and that you will be seeing these characters again. After you are done reading the book you are left with questions you want answered, and a craving to find out what will happen next. I know I am excited to know where this story is going to go.
