Review- 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…

I love Samantha Young's books. Her stories have heart and emotions and basically I thoroughly enjoy the way she writes chemistry between her characters. Villain is a novella set in the same universe as Hero. I had read Hero a long time back and the details were very fuzzy in my head. But I don't think it is necessary to read Hero before getting to Villain. You obviously do get to see Alexa and Caine, the leads of Hero in Villain because Henry is Caine's best friend but Villain can definitely stand alone on its own.

So let's start with Nadia. Nadia is a broadcast meteorologist. She has worked hard to get where she is but she still faces obstacles in her path. When her boss blackmails her into getting a story she inadvertently stumbles into Henry. I really liked Nadia. She owned who she was and was not afraid to speak her mind. All in all she was strong heroine who I really enjoyed.

Then we have Henry. Henry is a wealthy bachelor who always gets what he wants. He is flirtatious and charming and sometimes comes off as a spoiled brat. But underneath that exterior is a man who protects his friends and family. I enjoyed getting to know Henry. Henry and Nadia's relationship starts off on the wrong foot and I liked how willing Henry was to make amends. 

Nadia and Henry's chemistry was mind blowing. They were opposites in some way but their attraction was real. I liked how Henry was willing to work on Nadia's insecurities. Even though this was a novella Samantha Young excels at weaving in a nice plot which adds depth to the relationship and the story. Now I feel like rereading Hero. I'd definitely recommend Villain.
