Review: Summer Seduction by Rachel Van Dyken (Cruel Summer #2)

I wanted revenge.
And I got it in the best way possible.

Ray has always driven me insane, now that we’re older, all I want is to make her feel the pain she put me through for four years.

And then suddenly, everything shifts and I realize I just want her,
