Villain by Samantha Young ~ Amy’s Review



Samantha Young has ALWAYS been a one click author for me.


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…



Yes, yes, yes!!  Samantha has done it again!  

Samantha’s writing always captures me, how could it not, with her rich storylines, well developed characters, and just the right amount of sexual tension to make you crazy.  What I liked most about this book was the witty back and forth banter between Nadia and Henry.  It was fun, it was flirty, and it kept the story fresh from start to finish.  

I read this book in one sitting.  Not hard to do you might say, considering it’s a novella.  But even if this had been a full length novel (which I wish it was I loved these characters!) I wouldn’t have been able to put it down.  I was drawn into the story from page one and knew without a doubt I wouldn’t be stopping until The End forced me to.

Beyond the actual story this book held a message that was at times was  both subtle and in your face.  It work beautifully into the story as it pertained to not only both characters but the world we live in as a whole.   It was a message I think our society has kind of forgotten and that I hope finds it’s way back.

“Kindness cost nothing and yet it’s worth everything.”
