How far would you go to get revenge? When Chelsea Givens discovered that her ex-boyfriend Drew dumped her to be with her former best friend Lizzie, she'd never felt so betrayed in her life. Then her new friend Shannon tells her she can help set things right. Chelsea's willing to listen, but what Shannon wants her to believe -- that she shared a past life with Drew -- is impossible. And what she wants her to do to get him back ... well, it's downright crazy. Could Shannon be telling the truth? And if she is, what lengths will Chelsea go if it means making Lizzie pay? Find out in Vengeance, the second part of the Transcend Time Saga.

Chelsea finds out that her boyfriend is dumping her for her best friend Lizzie. All Chelsea wants to know is why? Why did this happen to her? Chelsea thinks that Lizzie was just trying to steal Drew away but this wasn’t the case. There is no convincing Chelsea at all that there was no cheating behind her back. Now Chelsea wants revenge and she is going to do everything in her power to get it. When Chelsea starts digging into Lizzie and Drew’s new found relationship she finds starts to remember that she has lived a past life before and now it is repeating. Chelsea wants to end up with Drew, she feels like this is how it should always be. How is Chelsea going to get her revenge?

I think Chelsea was a little to over dramatic for my taste. She was so focused on herself that she didn’t bother seeing those around and her truly looking at what she thought she had with Drew vs. what she really and with him. Drew was trying to be a good boyfriend but the entire time he was in love with someone else. Instead of causing Chelsea and himself more pain, he decided to end the relationship instead of continuing it. I have to say I admire him for it. I have to see how the next book places out because part didn’t think that this novella was really worth the time as far as the story goes. I thought Madow did a great job writing it, I’m just not sure how everything meshes together. We will have to see what happens.
