The Flaw in Raffaele's Revenge by Annie West
Reviewed by Helen

Another fabulous story by MS West this one a Beauty and The Beast story with the hero being the beauty Italian Raffaele Petri pulled himself of the streets of Italy and out of poverty with his looks and he does not speak of his past but when he becomes a model and then moves on and makes a name for himself then in business he is a quiet man but he never stops looking for someone and revenge is what he wants for a wrong that was done years before.

Lily Nolan was badly scared when she was young and keeps to herself she is a researcher and very good at what she does but when one of her clients rings her during the night and practically demands that she pack up in Australia and comes to New York to work exclusively for him she is stunned but in the end decides to do this it is hard for Lily to travel that far and be in contact with people but she is strong and when she meets Raffaele he does not shy away like most people do and there is a spark that shoots between them will this be the change that the innocent Lily needs to get on with her life?

This is one emotional moving and very sensual story one that I found very hard to put down both Raffa and Lily have a lot in their past that they need to come to terms with and Lily shows such strength when she stands up to Raffa and her first kiss will have you sighing it was so lovely. Of course their journey to a HEA is filled with ups and downs denials and realizations. This is a story that you keep you turning the pages it has everything that a romance needs to keep you smiling I loved this one and can highly recommend it, it was a joy to read pulling at my heartstrings with emotion and love thank you MS West for another must read.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story

THE FLAW IN RAFFAELE’S REVENGE by author Annie West is a July 2016 release by Harlequin Presents series.

Business tycoon Raffaele Petrie tried to entice Lily Nolan with more money and bonuses to get her to go to New York to work with him exclusively, yet when that didn’t work he blackmailed her into it. But the reason Lily was reluctant to leave her home was her scarred face as she was not confident in an office environment.
Yet she went to New York and became a team player. Raffaele found her intriguing and wanted to unearth the woman underneath her baggy figure hiding clothes. Would he be able to manage that? Then he opened up to her and told his secrets, would Lily still look at him with respect after finding about his past?

THE FLAW IN RAFFAELE’S REVENGE is a fast paced thrilling story of revenge and redemption. Raffaele was after revenge, but would he be able to do it when the time comes? The prickly dialogue Lily used to hide behind is fun to read and all our sympathies go to her, yet she is not a weak girl. She manages to bring Raffaele to his heel. Author Annie West brought this story alive on the pages where a reader would sympathize with Lily and Raffaele yet root for them too. They both have to come out from their past issues and forge ahead. And a reader would stay stuck to the pages till the end trying to guess and ultimately find out how it all ends.

Highly recommended for all readers of romance.
Review by Dottie - 5 Stars
I have to start my review by saying I have never read an Annie West book that I didn't fall in love with both the book and the hero. I immediately fell in love with Raffaele but I absolutely adore Lily. Ms. West continues to bring the best of the best in romance books and I honestly don't know how she can get any better than the awesome writer she is but she constantly goes up the next level with each story. Raffaele Petri is out for revenge, Lily Nolan is only interested in solitude. Mix the two together and you have an amazing story. Lily is excellent at her job but likes to stay in the background as she is scarred and hates the pity looks she gets. Raffaele is only interested in hurting someone who is responsible for the death of his sister when he was a child. He needs Lilly to exact his revenge so he forces her out of her comfort zone and that is the only thing I will tell you about the story as you must read this book to truly appreciate both Raffaele and Lily and to also be amazed by the talent of Annie West. Get a comfortable spot, grab the book and truly enjoy an incredible story from start to finish. A keeper
Review by Amanda

Annie West surely knows how to keep a reader hooked to her novel from start to finish. Vivid writing, well-articulated scenes, sharp banter and sizzling chemistry makes The Flaw in Raffaele’s Revenge a compelling story with a unique twist on the Beauty and the Beast story. Ms. West makes this evergreen tale her own by interweaving realistic back story and creating intense yet flawed characters whose stories keep you turning the pages!

What Raffaele Petri wants he gets and in this case he wants the reclusive Lily Nolan to work for him on site. But when Lily is adamant to say yes, turning down his lavish incentives, Raffaele is forced to use blackmail in getting her to leave her home and travel to New York. With no other choice, Lily does Raffa’s bidding and is soon greeting him at his office. But she isn’t what he expected but her quirks intrigue him and it isn’t before long that Raffaele begins to unravel the mystery surrounding the sharp-tongued Lily!

Highly Recommended
