Adam Collins, former Navy SEAL, is working on getting his life together. One morning, he is speeding out of his driveway and almost runs over Chelsea without realizing it. She goes over later with the intent to give him a tongue-lashing for his not paying attention to his driving. As Adam answers the door, they both feel an instant attraction.

When the nightmare of the murder of his fiancé and unborn child resurfaces, Adam’s anger gets worse from the guilt he’s feeling for not saving their lives. Because of his investigation of the murder, Adam puts both his and Chelsea’s lives in serious danger. Rex and Jack both know that, in order for Adam to leave the past behind, he must face the true fact of the deaths and start to work on having a future with Chelsea. The three of them, along with the police, form a plan to capture the criminal and save Chelsea’s life.

Sweet Vengeance is a very heart wrenching story of how much a person can take upon themselves from the death of those closest to them. I am truly fascinated with the behavior of the two main characters - both had a lot of baggage - and they begin to bond by trusting each other. This is the third book in the Sweet Awakenings series.

Chelsea turned out to be a little too sweet, but a very caring person who would help anyone in need. She’s making an effort to get past her abusive boyfriend and Adam certainly triggered some of those frightening moments for her. He wants to learn why she gets nervous around him when he expresses any anger. One thing about Adam that never ceases to amaze me is that he didn’t know when to stop with the anger and to accept the truth from his friends until Chelsea is in danger.

The in-depth creativity of Ms. Morgan shows here with her characters and the attitudes of a few of them had me laughing at their behavior. She kept me in suspense of the villain and I was totally shocked at learning the truth of one of the secondary characters. I enjoyed reading about true friendship, regardless of the fact they had to force each other to listen to what needed to be said in order to face the truth.
