This is the first Tilly Bagshawe work I’ve read. I have to say that I wasn’t expecting much from it. But I was hooked with the summary and decided to give it a try. Betrayal and revenge. Wow! These weren’t the usual combination I always read in my chick lit. I’m excited! 

The beginning of the Scandalous by Tilly Bagshawe was a bit slow. It began with young Sasha Miller coming to Cambridge with her passion on physics. Later, she fell for her Director of Studies, Theo Dexter lies and become entangled with him. But Theo broke her dreams and heart with his betrayal. Determine to destroy Theo for what he did, Sasha headed towards US to rebuild her life with a plan to destroy her professor for what he did.

I love the characters, mostly Sasha. It was great to see how she went through with everything after the betrayal.  The storyline was a bit predictable, but still, the book was enjoyable and I admit that I could not stop reading this book once Theo betrayed Sasha because that is where things are getting interesting.

Overall, Scandalous is a nice fun read. I would definitely recommend it.
