Lace Vengeance by Eve Dangerfield


Did I stay up until 2am on a work night reading this? Yes.

Do I regret it? No.

The Snow White trilogy has honestly been such a fun surprise for me because it made me enjoy a lot of tropes I usually hate. Dangerfield's writing is snappy and consumable, like a book in saltwater taffy form. I don't know how she came up with a Snow White retelling in mafia form but it worked out pretty well as a reverse harem, especially since the "dwarves" in this book are actually a bunch of psycho men who are ride or die when it comes to the heroine.

LACE VENGEANCE was a pretty satisfying conclusion to the series. I feel like this book had more fan service than the previous two books, because huge chunks of it were just domestic scenes and lots of fucking instead of plot. I didn't mind the fanfictiony vibe, but the last act of this book and the confrontation with Zachery reminded me of how good Dangerfield is at high-octane and how much more of it I wished there was in this book.

The best part of this series was seeing January grow into her own, tbh. She went from being laughably, satirically naive to honestly pretty cutthroat. And it was satisfying to see her one-up the men who treated her like she was just a pretty painted object. Also, the group sex scene in the middle was like a four-point-something on the spicy scale. I wasn't expecting that.

Here's my tier ranking of the dudes, not that you asked. 

1. Doc and Daddy Eli, tying for first.
2. Adriano
3. Bobby (dead last, boo, #sorrynotsorry)

Doc is the only guy who's allowed to make me a "pussy juice" cocktail and not get mace sprayed in his eyes.

Thanks to the author for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!

3 out of 5 stars
