This book has everything you would expect and love about Lilian Monroe's books. It will make you laugh out loud, it has a hot alpha, a little suspense, some heat and of course a HEA.

I really wanted to like this book. The plot sounded promising : woman get revenge on her ex-fiance with a hot man and of course, they fall in love. Fake Dating, miscommunication, tempers, secrets. I just did not vibe with this book.

Alles beginnt damit dass Ellie ihren Hund zurück haben will, der von ihrem Ex-Verlobten als Geisel genommen wird. Dabei trifft sie Hugh der nur seinen Onkel besucht aber irgendwie ihr Komplize wird.

Eine süße spannende Liebesgeschichte, die mit ein paar Geheimnissen gespickt ist und wiedermal ist Verschweigen auch nur eine andere Art von Lüge.

Hat Spaß gemacht beim Lesen.

Viel Spaß beim Selberlesen!

This book was amazing and I wasn't able to put it down once I started reading it. Add this book to your TBR and you won't be disappointed.

The characters in this story are easily lovable. You get to experience the rollercoaster of emotions with them throughout.
The storyline is fun and captivating, even causing a few giggles. The author alludes to heat, but there really isn't any spice.
I was expecting a bit more because of the cover; I think this story suits more of an animated cover than the one it has.

Ellie can't seem to forget her ex-fiancée Jason even after she caught him cheating and now he's trying to steal her father's property. She plans on getting revenge when she hires a boatbuilder. Hugh shows up instead of the guy she hired and he's good looking, charming and interested in her. A fun, steamy read.

I received a copy of this book via Netgalley.

First thoughts: A short and sweet feel good romance.

The author did a great job evoking emotion within the reader at the right time. For example I felt Ellies infuriation with her ex and was right with her wanting to demand justice for the horrible things he was doing and how he treated woman in general.

I do feel that the romance between Ellie and Hugh moved a little fast for how slow the book moved in time. The author did slow it right down towards the end of the book where you felt the slow burn that made it the feel good romance it turned out to be.

This book is a humorous and fast-paced romantic comedy that follows Ellie Davis as she seeks revenge on her ex-fiancé, Jason. When her plan takes an unexpected turn and she hires Hugh Hartford through the OddJobs app, sparks fly between them, leading to a captivating romance filled with witty banter. As they navigate their feelings and seek retribution against Jason, the novel explores themes of forgiveness, second chances, and unexpected love. With a perfect balance of humor and romance, this delightful read promises to leave readers smiling.

Four Steps to the Perfect Revenge is a sort of rom-com but also sorta romantic thriller in a way, its an interesting genre that had a lot thrown at it. It was a fairly quick read but the characters are just sort of meh for me. I understood the motivations but it all felt so juvenile especially in the beginning. I did not love Ellie until closer to the end of the book but i stuck through it and was pleased with some of the ending. Not my favorite romance but also was not a DNF.

What a lovely book! Ellie is so delightfully portrayed, broken but with brittle edges. Hugh is perfect for her...except for his secrets! Hope we get to read more of this lovely family - Daphne's story perhaps!

Ruthie – ☆☆☆☆☆
I really enjoyed this book – it is pure escapism set in an island community with a lovely group of residents and one overly horrible ex-fiancé who manages to destroy most of the good things in Ellie's life.

Her meet-cute with Hugh Hartford is definitely memorable, and although all seems good between them, he is harbouring a secret, which poor chap he just cannot find a good time to reveal. It is highly entertaining watching him baulk at it time and again. Inevitably it damages their growing closeness, but the author does a great job of encouraging us to keep the faith.

There are so many fun islanders, but I think probably Ellie's parents and grandmother are my favourites. Hugh has quite a revelation of how different family life can be!

This is a cute vacation read with lots of hijinks and the enemies to lovers trope. I really enjoyed the read, but felt it ended kind of suddenly. I would have loved a longer ending.

This book was fine. Honestly it was an inoffensive romance that was something to read while commuting.

This book started out so well. I loved the meetcute and the characters were all so heartwarming and fun. The problem was the overreacting that happened in the 3rd act. I honestly couldn't believe it and it really ruined the book for me.

If you are looking for a book with action that is focused on revenge and a bit funny plus romantic then this one might be what you are searching for.

This was a funny, short and quick read that I really enjoyed.
The story was good written since it followed a red line that was easy to follow and had main characters that was easy to like.

It is a small town romance combined with revenge, action and second chances so with other words a must read.

This story was a quick and interest keeping read. The main characters have good chemistry and are likeable, as are most of the side/small town folks characters (except for evil exes obviously). This is a good amount of action that keeps the story flowing (though I do wish that there was a bit more ‘meat on the bones’ in the building and details of the story.

Four Steps to the Perfect Revenge by Lilian Monroe is a captivating and thrilling read that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. The story follows the journey of protagonist, Ava, as she seeks revenge on those who have wronged her. Monroe's writing is sharp and engaging, and her characters are well-developed and complex.

One of the things I loved about this book was the way it explored the theme of revenge. Monroe does an excellent job of showing the consequences of seeking revenge and the toll it can take on a person. The story is also full of twists and turns that kept me guessing until the very end.

Overall, I highly recommend Four Steps to the Perfect Revenge to anyone who enjoys a good thriller. It's a well-written and thought-provoking book that will keep you hooked from start to finish. I give it four stars out of five.

The story of Ellie and Hugh is fun. It is flirty. She is determined and even though she has self doubts, she is sure that her ex is in the wrong. Her meet cute with Hugh is sweet even. She loves her island life. Hugh has baggage too. Her family, dad, Daphne, mom and the people from the island are relatable characters who add to their story. The writing is strong. Thanks to Net Galley for a copy. This is my honest opinion.
