Are you afraid?
You should be.

Dark as night, this is a brilliantly plotted, gripping short story from the e-book sensation, Jack Jordan.

Before I tell you more about A Woman Scorned, I simply HAVE to give a shoutout to my fellow blogger Inge @ The Belgian Reviewer for recommending me Jack Jordan’s works in the first place. I doubt I would ever have discovered this author and his books (all of which I have LOVED) without Inge’s brilliant reviews and gentle nudges to just go for it… #bookbloggers are the best!
Jack Jordan has successfully delivered this juicy, sinister gem of a novella to keep the fans ticking over ahead of his next full novel (Before Her Eyes) release in August!
Yes, the title isn’t subtle- you know you can expect revenge by a woman scorned in this story but maybe knowing what you get is that which pulls you in… A woman scorned is a beast indeed and I was prepared to grab my popcorn and witness the hell on earth with properly nurtured amusement! Sorry, ladies, and I generalize a stereotype here so don’t take it personally, but when we, women, are truly pissed off, we can be a special kind of mean! 😀 *ducks behind couch*
As we are dealing with a novella, Jordan doesn’t dawdle about delivering the first big revelation. Page 2 on my Kindle, in fact. Just boom- and the game was on! Here I have to confess!!! I feel like I underestimated the author because the direction the story actually went and the note it ended on was in actuality a Great Dane next to the Beagle puppy that I was imagining as I started this novella…
I won’t uber-analyze this story bit by bit… characters, plot, this and that. What matters the most here is that as a whole, A Woman Scorned is THE perfect story for anyone who wants to spend a thunderous couple of hours completely captured! Every element this story rides on, was perfect and purposeful and so darned deliciously dark!
Because I will tell you a little secret… this story is not just about a woman’s revenge! No… this baby hides so much more in between its covers! 😉
