About the Book:

Sometimes revenge is the only choice. . .

Julia worked for weeks planning the perfect surprise birthday party for her boyfriend, Liam, but that night, she was the one who got the biggest shock. He broke up with her in front of all their friends, humiliating her in the process.

Clearly revenge was in order.

The plan is simple. Make him jealous, win him back, and then crush his heart. Fair is fair. 

However, there is one little hiccup, and he has curly brown hair and dimples.

Jesse is everything she wants. With him, she could almost forget her bruised heart. Almost. Julia has one choice: let Liam walk away after everything he did, or lose a chance at love in pursuit of payback.

My Review:

I first saw this book on Book Bub and noticed it was free on Kindle.  Looked interesting so I snatched it up.  This was a fun read!  I loved the characters, even the secondary characters, except for Liam.  He was one of those love-to-hate guys.

Each character had distinct personalities, fully developed by Tawdra Kandle.  And the romance was just spicy enough to cause some heat, but there was a sweetness about it as well.  Lots of tingles!  I loved it!

The story starts off with Julia planning a surprise birthday party for Liam, her boyfriend of ten months.  But the surprise is on Julia when Liam shows up with another girl... in front of all their friends.  Julia is heartbroken and humiliated, and plans her revenge.  But Julia's revenge is halted by her boss' son.  Will she go through with her plan?  No spoilers, but Julia finds the best way of dealing with the situation.

Best Served Cold is a quick read and a great book for summer reading!

My Rating:
