Publisher's Summary

Anya: My father was ruthless. Cold. Calculated. Formidable. Every decision. Every step. Every thought. Every breath he controlled. I never thought anyone could despise him as much as I did. I was wrong. So wrong. 

There was one person. He wanted revenge. I was the willing pawn. He was dangerous, beautiful, broken, and most of all a way to get back at my father. But there’s one thing I didn’t count on...falling in love.

Cassius: Stephen Glassman is my sworn enemy. And so, I felt no guilt as I took his most valuable possession. His darling daughter. 

Anya’s suffering is my new favorite pastime. My promise to kill her one day? Inevitable. She’s mine now. Mine to control. Mine to seduce. Mine to own. Who knew revenge would be this sweet?

⭐️ WELL DONE LADIES.. I LOVED IT ⭐️

A new Ava Harrison release is always a ‘one click’ purchase for me.. followed by some gimme.. gimme.. gimme gleeful anticipation for what’s to come. And this talented pair of authors didn’t disappoint.. there’s a delicious anti hero, suspense, feels, friction, fireworks and a fantastic web that drew me in from its first chapter, kept me there hooked and happy and finally let me go with its sweet Epilogue.

Vengeance, revenge and death has been the driving force for Cassius since the brutal murder of his parents when he was just fifteen.. shattering his and his sister’s world. And, for fourteen years, his emotions have been switched off.. watching and waiting for the right time to strike his revenge on villain Glassman.. the arms dealer who murdered in cold blood. His eighteen year old daughter Anya and her younger brother live alone.. naive, sheltered, protected in a gilded cage where their parents sometimes come to visit.. and unaware of the tangled web of lies they’ve been innocently suspended in. And, when Cassius comes for his vengeance, it’s Anya he takes.. and that will be the best decision he’s ever made.. for both their lives.. and for both their hearts. However, it’s not without its emotional challenges.. it won’t happen without it’s hurdles and digging-up the painful past.. it’ll also take strength, patience, understanding and character growth.. and it’ll take a whole lotta love too.

Worth a credit? Yes, it’s an exciting story told in dual POV that takes you on a journey where drama, angst, twists, secrets and revelations lie in wait for the unsuspecting listener. Ava and Vanessa wrote a well-paced enemies-lovers age-gap suspenseful slow-burn love story.. and Connor and Vanessa’s excellent narration brought it to life and made it into a five star audiobook.

One of the best stories of this genre this year!

This book consumed me, it had everything from suspense, betrayal, intrigue, secrets, emotional turmoil, dark romance, and characters you definitely want to meet. Cassius is a character you need to read to understand. he went through a very dark time and situation, he grew to be ruthless and with vengeance in mind, he never thought he will meet a woman that will bring him to his knees and yet make him a better man at the same time. Anya is a character that never expected for this story and yet I loved her so much, very well developed and her situation quite unique that had me intrigued.

There is a lot of action going on, there is so much story, the world-building in this story is one I want to read more about. It hooks you from the start but then you simply can't stop reading until you hit the last page. This author duo is perfect, they both combined their strengths in their writing abilities in the best way possible. I need to read way more books co-written by them. On the top list of reads on this genre for the year.

The audiobook was fantastic, the narrators Connor Crais and Vanessa Edwin did a brilliant job portraying the characters. I could feel every situation as if I was there, after reading the book I really needed to hear the audiobook, the editing and post-production were well done so if you like audiobooks you should give this a go, it certainly was a different experience from reading.

Great suspense that will keep you guessing

Set on revenge, Cassius’ gets more than he bargained for in the daughter of his rival, Anya. Their chemistry is instant, but their affair is a slow burn. Anya is everything Cassius didn’t know he needed, with her feisty temper, naivete, and her ability to stand up to him. The suspense from the twist and turns kept me guessing to the end. Connor Crais and Vanessa Edwin did a great job narrating; I loved the emotion these two conveyed.

This was a ride!!!

Cassius and Anya. This is a paring you see taking you one way, down the mafia / revenge path & then you get this burst of sunshine & hope. And then the twist at the end just surprises you as to where it's going and who is involved. Stellar job by the collaborative writing team of Ava Harrison & Vanessa Fewings.

They topped themselves by having the dynamic duo of Connor Crais & Vanessa Edwin perform this book. Absolutely brilliant job by both of them all the characters to life & giving distinct value to each voice. Really like it when they are paired together in an audiobook - total instaclicks for me!

Good but…

Honestly with Vanessa Fewings collaborating I thought there would be more sex. There were some hot moments, but this book was more story than hotness. There was definitely a lot of substance and the story was good. You can feel the Ava Harrison influence for sure. The narrators were fantastic and did an amazing job.

AMAZING BOOK, STORYLINE and NARRATION.

Ava Harrison and Vanessa Fewings co-wrote this beauty and I feel this is all I could wish for in a darker romantic suspense novel - love, hate, heartbreak, joy, despair, steam, angst with a heart wrenching shocking twist. I don´t even know how to describe the writing to give it justice. Everything is just so eloquently described, from the feelings, moods, situations to the love making, such beautiful wording and stunning descriptions. I was wrapped up in this story from start to finish.

I was also blown away by the narration. I LOVE Vanessa Edwin and paired with Connor Crais was an exploding emotional indulgence. They were the perfect choice for ravishing our ears and take us on this journey. Connor´s tone was raw, deep and demanding, you could hear Cassius pain and anger in his voice but also the softer tones with his emotions. AND, drunk Connor, female edition, really is a treat. Vanessa just plays on our emotions with that pure innocence, longing for more and that fight Anya has in her. It´s just stunning and her voice changing into the deeper male versions is flawless. They both really captivated my heart with this performance.

A traumatic childhood experience left Cassius Calvetti broken, cold and ruthless. He has one aim in life, revenge on the man who destroyed his whole world.
Anya Glassman, the girl who seemingly has everything, grew up loveless and lonely hidden away in a home of secrets and lies, where playing happy family was just a front. The only person she really cares about is her brother and even he seems withdrawn.
Anya was supposed to be the means to an end. Taken from one monster to be kept by another but is that man really a monster?

This really is a mesmerizing age-gap, enemies to lovers story with an incredible tension-filled slow burn that is sizzling sexy. Absolutely worth all the stars and a definite recommended read and/or listen!

Alpha Hotness!

The Ravishing is the type of book you think of when needing an alpha, dominate man, but also a sensual, teddy bear type lover. I was blown away at the storyline, how the authors took the innocent teenage boy, hardened him, carved his soul from cold stone, and brought him up to be ruthless, goal oriented, and detached from all emotion. Cassius went through things no boy should ever go through, but he forged on and thrived for his sister, his one dark promise he made to the man who ruined their life giving him the will to continue on. It is clear that the authors wanted their readers to not put this book down! Secrets are in full swing throughout the storyline, keeping you on the edge of your seat, your heart racing, your pulse thrumming as the hero and heroine release their tension together. The cold, heartless Cassius begins to crack because of Anya. Anya. She is his sunshine in the hurricane of life. But Anya has baggage too, secrets she only just found out before Cassius invaded her life. Both are broken, both come together and be the person the other needs.
This book is not to be missed!
Connor and Vanessa are prefect for this book. The emotions are so real, so primal, so loving. I always enjoy hearing these two in my ears!
*I was given an ALC (advanced listener copy) by the author to give my honest review of this book.

Set on Revenge

This story was about Anya and Cassius. Cassius kidnaps Anya as revenge for her "father" killing his mother and father when he was just 15. He has no clue about how she and her brother are treated and their backstory. Things move along nicely and Cassius warms to her. He is betrayed by someone he thought he could trust and the betrayer returns Anya to her father's house. This book has lots of suspense as well as romance. Connor Crais and Vanessa Edwin did a great job although I felt that Connor sounded a but old for Cassius.

Beauty and the beast of the underworld

I couldn’t help but think of that classic tail in the initial stages of this book. Right down to a yellow dress. Coincidence? Possibly. Regardless I enjoyed this book a great deal, especially after wading through so many so-so books the past couple of months. Ava Harrison and Vanessa Fewings’ partnership on this story was on point. The narration was great and we all know that’s so critical since the wrong narration will kill an audiobook dead. The characters were well thought out and developed nicely. I found myself tired but still awake last night around 2:30am because not even the need for sleep could compel me to pause and finish in the morning. The Ravishing will not disappoint.

Didn’t see that coming…and neither will you!

Having read and written stories of this nature, I enjoy them, but often can figure out the entire storyline…I truly was taken aback by some of the twists and turns in this story. The gentleman narrator’s voice…ooo-la-la!!!
