Cherime MacFarlane’s Red Revenge is based on the red and blue states in America. A bounty hunter kidnapped Marin Sobert while she was living in Washington. The decline in the population of women in the red states had put her at risk. On her arrival in Idaho, Marin saw her buyer, Gene Worthington III, berating his son. Tanner didn’t want to be with a woman just to impregnate her. Marin could see that his hatred was obvious and hoped she could manipulate him. When they entered the house, Dr. Thorne dashed her hopes by putting her in restraints and injecting Tanner with an enhancer. Tanner did his best not to hurt Marin. When his father insisted on seeing Marin, Tanner realized that it didn’t matter who made her pregnant. What could he do without being blamed for her kidnapping?

Cherime MacFarlane built suspense and used several controversial political topics to enhance the story. The narrative delves into global warming, Christian Nationalism, and abortion from Marin’s perspective. Tanner’s rebellion against his father had already begun before Marin arrived, and her appearance sped up and complicated his plans to break away from his father’s rule. The unpredictable plot was like riding a roller coaster. One minute, I thought Tanner would show compassion toward Marin, only for her angry remarks to put him on the defensive. Tanner’s security detail helped Marin and Tanner connect through their conversations. The vivid description of how Idaho lacked vegetation and experienced extreme temperatures led me to envision a desert. Readers who are fans of political dystopian stories will enjoy Red Revenge.
