Revenge has never been such fun How would you feel if your best friend at work betrayed you? Was secretly having an affair with an influential colleague? Won a coveted promotion, then teamed you up with a mere junior, leaving you feeling completely demoted? What would you do? For Ivy there's no choice. The only person she has ever trusted, Orianna, has blown it big time. So there's only one way forward: revenge. Ivy's campaign is brilliant, if horribly destructive, and she's determined to get even with the woman who has dared to cross her. But is Ivy really the innocent party? Or is she hiding secrets of her own? From Sarah Rayner, the international bestselling author of One Moment, One Morning, comes Getting Even, an unputdownable story of jealousy, sex, friendship and backstabbing set in the heart of London's Soho adland.

“Getting Even” by Sarah Rayner is a very fun and fantastic read. Orianna and Ivy have been long time coworkers. Orianna is dating her superior and Ivy is having an affair with the financial director. Ivy is very jealous of Orianna, especially since Orianna got a promotion. Ivy decides to get revenge on Oriana. Ivy then recruits other people to help with her plans to get revenge. Ivy has her own skeletons that may come out so she has to be careful because she never knows who may try to get revenge on her. Orianna and Ivy are definitely fun characters to read about. I don’t think I have so much fun reading a novel.

Rayner is a great writer. I thought “Getting Even” was a lot of fun to read. She does an amazing job with developing her characters. Rayner makes everything about this book so fun and entertaining. I loved the story that she has brought to us. Many characters are fun even the minor ones. The reader never knows who is going to have the next trick up their sleeve I look forward to seeing more from Rayner because I really enjoyed “Getting Even.” It is definitely a fun stay at home read.
