Revenge is the third and final book in Lexi Blake's Lawless Brothers series. I have been following this series right from the beginning so I was eager to know how it would all play out for the Lawless siblings. I have to stress that Revenge cannot be read as a stand alone. The series has a continuous plot with each brother getting a story along the way. So you have to read the series in order to understand what's going on and the history each character has. I enjoyed Revenge. 

This is the story of the oldest Lawless sibling Andrew. As the title suggests after the murder of his father, Drew has been on a quest to find the truth. He'll do anything to get his revenge. He has waited long enough to get justice for his siblings. But for his plan to work he needs the help of an investigative reporter- Shelby. Now as for Drew, he was hell bent on revenge at first. Drew's personality is unlike any of his siblings. He is cold and practical at best. He doesn't deal with emotions and all his life he's been taking care of his family. Drew was the least selfish man I've met. He never once thought about himself and was always ready to sacrifice what was needed of him.

Then we have Shelby. Where Drew was cold Shelby was warm. Shelby's brother got murdered while investigating a case. Shelby hasn't been able to get over that or the case which surrounded his death. It just so happened that it involved the Lawless siblings. Now Shelby is involved but she can't seem to stop herself from getting close to Drew, from comforting him and from taking care of him. Shelby was an extremely like able heroine.

Drew and Shelby's relationship starts off as a contract which would help them both. But Drew being the practical guy that he is plans to protect his family first then deal with Shelby. But things change soon as expected. Shelby brings out the human side of Drew, makes him look at a situation from both sides. And all along Drew was there to protect Shelby. Lexi Blake knows how to write romance and steamy scenes and there are plenty of those in this book.

Along with the romance we also find out what really happened that night twenty years ago. Secrets are revealed and there are some really psychotic characters in this series. With some action there are twists and turns. I liked seeing all the Lawless siblings together one final time. There are some new additions but the bonds of friendship and family remain strong. Revenge was a nice conclusion to the series.
