    1. I simply loved this book.A beautiful, intense and emotional story of revenge, love, deception, treachery, secrets and how the power of love can overcome anything in your life.Siena DiPiero is seen as a spoilt and pampered daughter of a wealthy man but what no one knows is the darkness and pain that lies beneath what the world sees. Andreas Xenakis, after being spurned in a rather horrible manner by Sienna, has returned 5 years later to exact his revenge on her. He doesn't care that she’s no lo [...]

    2. This book is actually a retelling of "Great Expectations." There is Siena a cold beauty who falls from grace, there is Andreas the pure young man who falls in love with an insensitive emotionless temptress, Sienna, and there is even the benefactor who sees Andreas for the good-hearted boy he is and gives him the chance to turn his life around and become a business tycoon. Like in "Great Expectations" Siena is the hero's inspiration. His work, his success, his ambition is all about her. For Andre [...]

    3. This one reminded me a lot of Bedded And Wedded For Revenge by Melaine Milburne. Both have a billionaire hero who wants revenge on the spoiled heiress heroines who lost them their jobs when they were young. The difference is that this heroine only feels the slightest guilt about the hero's treatment in the past because she clearly sees that it was her father's doing and not hers. In the MM story, the heroine *is * guilty and knows it - and that ups the angst factor.Because the hero is operating [...]

    4. This book was fantastically written and I wanted to give more stars. But I hated how they hurt and threw insults on each other’s face in every other page. Just when I thought the issues will resolve , H/h starts exchanging rude comments again. I felt heroine was little worse. She didn’t have anything to be angry with him , still she was cruel to him sometimes. She wasn’t sweet or anything. She was very prickly and defensive. The se**ual tension and chemistry between them was off the charts [...]

    5. I had to read this once I realized there was a follow-up to The Legend of de Marco.This story centers around the youngest of Rocco's two "snobby" younger sisters who infamously stepped over him in the street after their father spat on him and knocked him to the ground - the most humiliating moment and driving factor of Rocco's life which was mentioned several times in the first book.The truth was that the sisters were terrified of displeasing their sadistic father and not cruel society ice-queen [...]

    6. Loved this book. As I started reading it, I was reminded of another Abby Green book The Kourous Marriage Revenge (TKMR) that had a very similar premise. - Both heroines (Siena and Kallie) belonged to rich families and were seventeen years when they seduced/kissed their respective Greek heroes (Andreas and Alexandros) whom they'd had a crush on. -- Because of that kiss, the heroes were abused and beaten by the h's family and banished to a life of hardship. While Alexandros' engagement --that woul [...]

    7. I am really surprised this did not score higher as it has so many tropes worthy of a Harlequin: spurned lover, rotten parent's manipulation, sisterly martyrdom, failure to communicate, virgin, lusty Greek tycoon, insta-billionaire, and a partridge in a pear tree. The two tropes that are missing that I can think of are a secret baby and a mortal illness. Ah, can't have it all apparently.The H was thrown out of Europe essentially because of a lie the h told. Five years later, yep just five measly [...]

    8. Title semantics: there’s no forgiving until the end, so it would have made more sense if it was Not Forgiven and Not Forgotten, without any question about it at all. Maybe someday the book will be retitled ‘The Greek Billionaire’s Revenge Mistress’ and I can complain about that too.Once upon a time, Rocco de Marco encountered his father on the street, and was spat on and beaten up. Siena was there. She stepped over her bastard brother’s broken down body and rode away in a limousine. Th [...]

    9. Blood is thicker than water, and revenge is sweet. Bring the two together and what do you get, two people both willing to give what ever it takes to reach their ultimate goal.In the latest read from Abby Green I was introduced to a world of past mistakes and hidden secrets overshadowing the future. The read is about Siena she has want for nothing, her father's wealth ensures she has it all, or so it seems to the outside world. One night for one heart-stopping passionate moment she lets down her [...]

    10. It's been a while since I read an Abby Green and I have several waiting on my overflowing TBR but I picked this one up when it was mentioned as having a virgin in a newspaper interview and was drawn in immediately. I love the world she creates and I love that we catch glimpses of people from her other books and in this case an upcoming book.I loved the heroine Siena who is down but not out, rebuilding her life and that of her sister after an immensely privileged but abusive childhood. Five years [...]

    11. This was a better than average Harlequin Presents. Siena and Andreas make a good couple, even though she's so wimpy and polite for most of the book it's hard to believe he can imagine she's a shallow, gold-digging slut.There was a very old-fashioned vibe to the set-up: years before she enticed him and then her father ruined him and random goons beat him up. So Andreas vowed revenge! Funny how in Presents novels any jilted male can become a millionaire just by getting really, really mad and bitte [...]

    12. Another lush, glamourous and darkly sensual story of love and revenge from the wonderful Abby Green. Greek hotel tycoon Andreas Xenakis has been hunting down the spoilt debutante who humiliated him as an impoverished young hotel manager five years before and made him lose his job. Since then he has risen to dizzying heights while the fortunes of young Italian heiress Siena DePiero have plummeted - her father exposed as an embezzler and her and her sister Serena cast out of polite society. Now tr [...]

    13. I didn't care for the hero. His attitude was what stopped me from giving this book a higher score. He was an ass and really should have done more to redeem himself to Siena. He treated her like a prostitute for most of the book (he even basically called her one when deriding her for "prostituting" herself to him for a week when she tells him why she wanted the money- it was to help her sister who has severe bi-polar disorder). Which brings me to my next point, his reaction when she tells him why [...]

    14. 4.5 AG is one talented author. She has the ability to take some well- used tropes and create something fresh and new. Thanks to a powerful and elegant writing style, to all the tension, the angst and the intense emotions and to well- developed and very likable characters with well- thought of backstories. Siena is a wonderful heroine, strong and vulnerable at the same time. Andreas is the super alpha, sometimes even ruthless, but he has a soft spot for 5 y for Siena bordering on obsession so I t [...]

    15. "You’re in my head and my heart and my soul, and you have been for five years—ever since I first saw you. First you were a fascination, then you became an obsession, and nowI love you. The thought of you being in this world but not with me is more terrifying than anything I’ve ever known."Crying because of too much feels!!!

    16. I adored this one. I found the hero at times to be intentionally cruel, too cruel but he eventually makes up for it. I love harlequins like this for their own special HEA.

    17. I don't know what to say or how to review this because I don't really have a lot to say or thoughts aside from that it was another enjoyable and solid read by Abby Green. There was plenty of passion and heat between Siena and Andreas. Plus there lots of lovely angst that I always enjoyed in a romance. It was good. I wished that Siena's abuse at the hands of her father and the effect they had on her was explored more instead of glossed over or barely touched. It was rushed. More focus was put on [...]

    18. H not as jerky as some in HP Land. h and twin sister are emotional and physical abuse survivors. Father is wealthy and disappears to avoid prosecution leaving them without resources, funds, and subject to society ridicule. h's twin suffers from bipolar disorder. Even with the heavy themes this is a Very light and easy read. 3 stars

    19. "Green's tale of deception and treachery is flawless. Her heroine is the perfect mix of sultry and sweet, and her hero is all arrogance and ego - yet both exhibit astonishing honesty, especially in their fiery love scenes." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars

    20. Loved it! I was hooked on this book from the moment I started it and I could not put it down until the end. An angsty, unconventional love story and such a roller coaster! How it's possible not to love everything Abby Green writes. I love her writing, and this book does an incredible job showing how talented of an author she is. She has the ability to take some well- used tropes and create something fresh and new. Andreas was such a very compelling hero. I actually liked that I started out not l [...]

    21. I was pulled in right from the start. I had read her previous story, The Legend of De Marco and was impressed with that one. Only to have her interlink the stories fabulously with a reminder of how harsh Rocco's father was. Learning how the children were treated, made my heart bleed for the daughters. When Abby introduced reality into this wonderful story I was pulled in more. I felt for Andreas when Siena did what did she felt she had to do, and if I was her I would have done the same. To see A [...]

    22. When Siena DePiero's father's wealth was taken away by the government for his illegal activities, she fled to England and started over in London. It was there that Andreas Xenakis found her serving as a wait staff for an evening event he was attending. At last he would have the revenge he's waited so long to get for her treatment of him five years before! Knowing that she had no recourse, he dragged her out of the hotel to his apartment and demanded nothing less than complete surrender thinking [...]

    23. very intense emotions involved. i was melancholic about the book loved it n disliked it at the same time. i felt so bad 4 sienna. my heart was torn as she was misunderstood n was very alone in the world. i wish no1 her plight. she was courageous though n did what she had 2 do. completely 5 star 4 her

    24. Predivno! Emotivna prica o snazi dugogodisnje ljubavi izmedju pripadnika razlicitih drustvenih klasa , i odlican pristup temi koja se cesto susrece u ljubavnim romanima. Najbolja knjiga od Lj&S izdanja definitivno i odlican pocetak Nove godine (bar sto se knjiga tice) . Preporuka od mene! :)

    25. I liked the characters in this book. They are so real and believable. I felt all the heroines emotions like they were my own. I won this book in a giveaway.

    26. More like a 2.5, but I am feeling generous. Major mixed feelings about this one. I really like the premise of FBNF. It's just the sort of fraught scenario that would lead to the melodramas, misunderstandings and tensions that are HP's bread and butter, while being unique and a little risky for the genre. Never thought I'd read about a heroine who willingly and falsely accusing the hero of rape. However, the hero does not make the cut. I make allowances for cruel heroes and trembling heroines in [...]
