The Sweetest Revenge (Paperback)
It has been two years since Amy was publicly humiliated after her drunk attempt at revenge on her ex-boyfriend. Despite her two years away from home, Amy vows to never return from London where she now produces trailers instead of proper films. As Amy feels that she will never reach the career point she was once at, she jumps at the unexpected competition at work. While she is just beginning to build her motivation, it slowly begins to tank again when her ex-boyfriend is brought in and decides her fate. Will she be able to convince Jake, her hot new neighbor who happens to want to write professionally, to help her in her revenge?— Ayah
“I love, love, love Lizzy Dent.”—Emily Henry, author of People We Meet on Vacation and Happy Place
Bridesmaids meets Emily in Paris—in London—in this hilarious and heartfelt story of one handsome neighbor, one no-good ex, and the summer Amy Duffy makes the comeback of her life.
Her past is a mess. But her present is about to get delicious.
Amy is more than one disastrous night of drunken revenge on her boss/ex-boyfriend’s Audi—the night that tanked her rising TV producer career and led to a hasty move to London for a fresh start. She is thirty years of awesomeness. At least, that’s what Amy tells herself every morning before trekking to her mediocre job making trailers at a failing British TV channel.
Two years later, she’s finally starting to believe it. Sparks are flying between her and Jake, her handsome new downstairs neighbor, and there’s a competition at work that just might get her career back on track while bringing her and Jake even closer. But then, in a twisted turn of fate, the ex-boyfriend who wrecked her life is hired as her new boss and past and present are about to epically, hilariously collide.
