Book Review: The Revenge Plan by Linda Kage


Haven Gamble is having a bad day is really putting it mildly. She walked in on her long time boyfriend’s dick inside of her roommate on her loveseat. A loveseat that she now has to burn. First, she has to get out of there. Fast. Topher is chasing her–to talk to her. Yeah, right like that’s going to happen. She runs right into the one person Topher hates the most–Wick Webster. A series of events that alters her life unfolds including moving out of her dorm room and moving in with her noe ex’s arch-nemesis. The more time passes the more Haven wants revenge on Topher not only for cheating on her, but for all the horrible things he has done to other people too. Oh and not to mention the antics he’s currently pulling like spreading vicious rumors that could ruin her future or his cruelty to others. Topher needs to learn a lesson and she’s just the girl to do it. After all she is a future teacher. But she’s going to need some help.

Wick has been fighting/feuding with Topher since Freshmen year. Nothing has changed. Why would it now? Wick feels protective of Haven after she pushed him back into his sister’s dorm room to hide from Topher. He will do anything to protect this girl even at risk of his own health which could happen on the football field if Topher and his offensive line find out where Haven lives. The longer he’s around Haven the more he’s falling for her. Of course, Topher and his O-line will do everything possible to make Wick’s life a living hell including hitting Wick so hard during practice that lands Wick in the hospital.

Wick’s sister Izzy has a plan that she didn’t tell anyone about. Will her plan work?

I have to admit the first few chapters were a bit confusing that was due to having three POV. I kept reading. I wanted to figure out how all three connect. Please don’t stop reading because of the three POV. It will make sense at the halfway point and completely revealed towards the end.

Hint: Family takes care of their own!


After I caught my boyfriend cheating, I tried to be mature about it with an amicable split. But he took his retaliation too far, and I have officially had enough. No more Miss Nice Haven.

No one is allowed to lie to me, betray, embarrass, and devastate me, fill me with self-doubt, or put my future at risk, and expect to get away with it.  He is going to feel my wrath.

Enter Wick Webster, his archenemy.

Nothing would provoke my ex more than to see me moving on with the one guy he hates most, so that’s exactly what I plan to do.

The only hitch in my brilliant scheme is Wick himself. He’s just gotta be all love-not-war and peace-is-the-only-way. He’s more concerned about helping me heal than seeking my sweet revenge.

And what the hell is it about his soothing presence and yummy looks that calls to me until I forget how much pain I’m in? He’s making it awfully hard to use and abuse him for my malicious means. The damn guy is making me fall for him.

Excerpt #1

“You guys are totally off your rockers. I am not having sex with anyone just to get back at Topher. To me, that’d be like drinking poison and expecting him to die from it.”

Bentley gasped, affronted, and pressed a hand to her chest. “Sex isn’t poison.”

I rolled my eyes because SHE hadn’t been cheated on recently.

“Seriously,” Teagan went on. “Sex can be good for you. It’s actually the number one reliever in vaginal atrophy.”

I blinked. “In…what?”

“Inflammation, dryness, and thinning of the vaginal walls.”

“Huh?” I furrowed my brow, wondering how I’d landed myself in a sex-education class.

“You must massage the tissue down there, exercise it regularly and get the blood flowing so it remains healthy and elastic. Otherwise, it’s going to dry out like an unused rubber band and crumble apart.” She balled her hand into a fist as if wadding up something. “Just a brittle piece of hopelessness.”


Why did I suddenly want to wince and protectively cover my hoo-ha with both of my hands? Seriously, I’d just found an old rubber band last week. It had dried up and fallen to pieces as soon as I had picked it up.

Lord, I didn’t want my vagina to crumble apart like that.

But then Bella—bless her soul—rolled her eyes and muttered, “Oh, whatever. She doesn’t need a man to get the blood flowing down there. My faithful BOB has kept me more satisfied and elasticized than any human douche ever could.”

Teagan merely shrugged. “It’s more fun with a real penis though. Just saying.”

“Wow,” Lucy murmured, shaking her head. “JB must have some kind of magical cock to make you talk this way because, before him, you were all like, eww, men are so overrated. Sex is gross. Keep it away from me.”

Lifting her chin, Teagan sniffed proudly and rubbed her swollen belly. “He does. It even sparkles in the sunlight.”

“Ack,” I cried, covering my ears with my hands. “It is so impossible to think of JB that way. He’s like a cousin to me, T.”

“You know, you don’t actually have to have sex with anyone,” Bentley spoke up, making me glance at her in confusion. “You just have to make Topher believe you did.”

“Or…” Bella countered. “As much of a showboat as Topher is, the best way to get back at him would be to just move on and be happy. I have a feeling him seeing you moving on without him might drive him crazier than anything.”
