Review Tour: VILLAIN by Samantha Young

The sexy and emotional companion novella to the New York Times bestselling romance HERO.

Nadia Ray is not just a broadcast meteorologist. She’s Boston’s morning television It Girl. Successful and independent, she’s put a past she’s ashamed of behind her and is forging a future she can be proud of. However, when her new boss discovers her secret he blackmails her, intent on using Nadia’s popularity to make them the number one morning show in Massachusetts. He wants her to be part of uncovering the city’s biggest scandal - a secret billionaire Caine Carraway is hiding.

Soon Nadia is thrown into the path of Caine’s best friend: sexy, wealthy bachelor Henry Lexington. But she doesn’t encounter the dashing high society gentleman Henry is purported to be. Instead she’s faced with an insulting and defensive villain who misjudges her at every turn.

When Henry finally realizes the truth, and decides to make amends, Nadia wants nothing to do with him. But she underestimates his determination and charm and soon they find themselves embroiled in an intense, passionate affair.
An affair Nadia knows must come to an end before their feelings grow any deeper and he discovers her secrets.

After all, Henry Lexington isn’t the only one who played the part of a villain once…

"There was something deeply wrong with me that I could be attracted to a man I didn't even like."

I usually don't read a lot of novellas, because it's too short for me to really enjoy it. However Samantha Young did such a great job in telling a complete story in a limited amount of pages. I enjoyed Hero a lot, so I was pretty excited to get my hands on Villain. I think the title does great justice to the story. Because the two main characters don't start off on the right foot. I loved how everything progressed and how things developed between Nadia and Henry. I liked that Nadia has an unusual job in this book (broadcast meteorologist), and I also thought she had a great personality. 

In the beginning, I didn't really like Henry because he was very rude, but he grew on me pretty quickly. What I loved the most was their banter and how fun their interactions were. I am glad that there were some mystery to the story as well, Nadia was keeping a secret that she didn't want revealed. The sex scenes were hot and just enough to satisfy me. The writing was great, I was able to connect to the characters and everything fit perfectly together. I think Villain was a great contemporary romance, and I wouldn't have minded it being a full-length novel.
