REVIEW ➞ Vengeful Bastard by Nicole Dykes


Sean is a normal guy. Has a great job as a photographer. Drives a new car, but not overly flashy. Has his small group of friends.
Yeah he’s just your run of the mill average Joe.
Except, is anyone really all that normal?
The secrets Sean harbors run deep. Stemmed from agony deep inside and a thirst for vengeance.

Melody is perceived as the beautiful spoiled princess that fell for a beautiful, confident stranger many years ago.

Two polar opposites. One night that changed everything without either of them knowing it.

Can love conquer all? With the help from a mysterious stranger, Adele. Who you may all know from a certain Cocky character’s life. Unlucky in love herself. Anything is possible.

But this was the most beautiful gift I could have given myself. Because for tonight, fate allowed us to be one.


This is my first read from Nicole and I know it won’t be my last. I loved these characters, both the main characters and the secondary characters.

Melody had her heart broken at 16, she was promised the world and woke up with nothing. Sean is all about the games, especially when it comes to rich girls like Melody. He was drawn to her, but treated her like all those before her. Now, six years later they are forced to go on a road trip with their friends. The past is coming back and truths and all that hurt will be revealed, but will Sean and Melody be able to admit their true feelings?

I loved the chemistry between Sean and Melody from the moment the met, even though he claimed he was just playing games, you could tell there was something more and that he knew she was different. Melody sees something different in Sean. She doesn’t see the broken boy and broken man who grew up in a completely different world than her. Their relationship was definitely more of a slow burn, but I enjoyed the ride.

The secondary characters were fantastic and added a lot to this story, specifically Adele. She played a major role in Sean and Melody’s relationship. I love Blair and Rhys and I’m definitely curious about their connection.

Vengeful Bastard is a MUST READ!
