THE SEDUCTION (THE ARRANGEMENT) by Carly Phillips | New Release Review



by Carly Phillips


Revenge is a dish best not served …

Zach Anders swears to get revenge on Sean Ferro for hurting his sister. The best way to accomplish his goal? Hurt someone close to him in return.

No one can get near Ferro’s on again - off again fiancée - so Zach sets his sights on the next best thing, the woman Sean considers family, the girl who grew up next door, Chloe Reynolds. The plan seems simple -- get close, find her weak spot, exploit it and walk away.

Then Zach meets Chloe and he falls hard. And fast. How can he use her for revenge when he wants to keep her for himself?

This well written novella brings together Sean Ferro with one of his friends - Chloe. She grew up with Sean (being his neighbor), and what started as a juvenile crush has now evolved into a friendship and brotherly/sisterly love. Sean is very protective of Chloe... and let's just say, Chloe is an innocent who needs protecting.

Throughout the story, you cannot help yourself wanting to warn her not to be naive. She is sweet, openly warm and friendly. Unfortunately, her douche bag ex boyfriend betrayed her and she is living with the consequences of his actions. Having sworn off men, she is concentrating on finishing college and pursuing her dreams.

Meeting Zach changes her life and outlook on men. What appears to be her Prince Charming is more than meets the eye. Yet there is something there between them that cannot be denied.

This story dovetails with H.M. Ward's story The Arrangement as they share some of the characters. Although we readers love Sean, his appearance in this story is a simple cameo as protector of Chloe. Our main characters Chloe and Zach are the ones who must journey searching for what is love and what is real. Hope you enjoy this enticing novella.
