Payback. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Payback by Amy Daws

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Her cheating ex deserves to see her living her best life; a one-night-stand with a hot South African soccer player would be the perfect revenge. Right? 

Wrong. Allie is so, so wrong. 


On and off the field he’s at the top of his game. Roan respects hard-work, dedication—and follow through. He’s not a one and done kind of man, and he’s far from being done with Allie Harris. 

One sexy night and two years later, Allie’s job brings her back to town. An opportunity for the perfect replay Roan has been fantasizing about since they slept together. 


Allie Harris has a secret; one she’s been keeping from Roan all this time. Video proof of their one night together—taken without his consent. 

Will Allie’s payback plan come back to bite them both? Or can she erase her past mistake and embrace a new future with Roan? 

BLURB: Payback

Good sports romance!

This was a pretty good story but there were parts that were sort of predictable. Alice flies to London for a family wedding after finding her boyfriend and her step-sister/roommate/best friend in bed together (her bed). So she is determined to have a one night stand and she wants to get back at the ex by filming the beginning striptease part between her and the guy to make the ex jealous.

However, when she tries to hit the stop recording button, it doesn’t stop and she gets the entire experience on film. Fast forward two years later and Alice moves to London and sees her One night stand, Roan again. He still plays for the professional soccer (or as the English say “football”) team that her Uncle coaches and Cousin plays for. She has kept the video on her phone and watches it often but feels guilty about it when she starts dating Roan. Especially since he has a very good reputation and something like that coming out could ruin him.

The book is good, but you can see exactly where this is going even after she deletes the video. Though like me, you have to read the book to find out more. The romance between Roan and Alice is good though a bit tame. Her family is pretty funny. I laughed out loud a few times throughout the book.
