In Brazilian Revenge By Carmen Falcone we follow Leonardo and Satyanna who after hot steamy weekend together Satyanna along with a priceless sculpture disappear and after searching for her he find her in a prison. It is at this point the story really takes off .I would just like to start off by saying that this story was such fun !!! I loved it !!! This book grabbed me and did not let go until the end.
Leonardo and Satyanna were such fun character . In the beginning they are pretty stand offish about each other because of past events, but when they began to slowly let each other in again it was wonderful to see . We got some back story on each of the characters and it really helped you understand why they are the way they are. They were both such strong characters I found them both very realistic and relatable . I was rooting for this couple so hard!!! it didn't matter what there personal issue were. I was like please!! work it out you two belong together forever and ever and ever . The whole cat and mouse game to find the man who was the cause of all there problems in this books takes some twist and turns I didn't expect and had me on the edge of my seat . I really just wanted to clobber the bad guy with a huge stick lol . I also loved that the setting was Brazil just from Carmen Falcone descriptions of the places we visit in this book. It makes me want to visit lol.
Brazilian Revenge by Carmen Falcone was a wonderful book it was romantic , sexy , funny , emotional and just a pleasure to read !!!

Silly small talk was harmless, right? Maybe the guy didn’t even speak English, which would bring things to a stop quickly and spare her the embarrassment. Before she thought things through, she found herself walking toward him, even though her knees weakened a bit more with each step.
What the hell? She had dated before and even had a boyfriend or two while studying at the New York City Photography Institute. This…by the time she made it to his side, she still had no fucking idea what she was going to say. He held a tumbler that was half filled with ice and some sort of alcoholic drink. Up close, he was bigger and taller, even though she stretched to her full five feet nine inches. His profile was intense, his eyes looking above even though there was nothing but a cloudless sky sprinkled with stars. The music from the dance floor faded into the background, and she inhaled. The man was completely content with being on his own, and this fascinated her, even though she couldn’t quite understand the sentiment—not after a life of being on her own for the most part.
She felt an unfamiliar throbbing sensation in her heart; it surged all the way down between her legs. “What are you supposed to be?” she asked him. He turned to look at her, and she noticed that his eyes were a gorgeous hazel—cinnamon with a hint of gold.
“Excuse me?” he asked without a smile and lifted his glass before taking a swig.
“Your costume,” she said, pointing at him. She lifted her hand to keep him from speaking. “No. Don’t say it. Let me guess. A mysterious guest. Perhaps a party crasher who stole some rich guy’s black tie.”
He chuckled, and the sound was masculine, hearty, and infectious. The planes of his face softened a bit, and she almost reached for his drink to have a shot, because she needed something to settle her nerves. “Go on,” he said, with a heavily accented voice.
“You used someone’s suite, maybe even a deluxe one. But you were afraid they’d return, which is why you didn’t have time to shave.” She pointed at his face. “Your hair is messy. You’re worried about something. Perhaps someone stood you up.”
He offered her a half smile. “Who would that person be?”
She leaned in. “A woman. A woman who likes to keep you on your toes.”
“Maybe she will meet me with our new passports before we fly off somewhere,” he said, his eyes watching her as if she would escape from him otherwise.
“In that case, I better introduce myself before she gets here. Satyanna Darling.” She offered him her hand, but in typical Brazilian style he gave her a kiss on both cheeks. The kiss was nothing more than it should have been, but, oh, it unleashed a part of her that she had no idea had been suppressed until then.
