by Vanessa Fewings & Ava Harrison
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.
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?

In Short: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! I loved this book from beginning to end. Sexy, angsty, and the best slow burn I've read all year! A must, MUST read.
The Full Review:
Being a fan of both Vanessa Fewings and Ava Harrison, I knew this read would be the one book I'd HAVE to read this year, even if I read nothing else. I was not disappointed in any way. THE RAVISHING was gripping, intriguing, exciting, and superbly written. Cassius and Anya just clicked, even when it seemed they shouldn’t.
Cassius Calvetti is the descendant of Italian aristocracy but though he might have been born into privilege and wealth, that didn’t save him or his family from the wrath of greed. After a harrowing night where he lost nearly everything, he’s set on revenge and nothing will stop him from getting his pound of flesh.
Anyone looking in on Anya’s life would think she’s the spoiled princess of a wealthy businessman. That’s certainly the view Cass had of her. But her life is shackled to a gilded cage filled with isolation and loneliness. She’s an implement of revenge and when all the secrets come pouring out, everything changes, and neither Cassius nor Anya were prepared for what was to come.
I LOVED Cass and Anya together. They were a very unlikely pair as both seemed to be on opposite sides of the page. Cass is set on taking his revenge for everything that happened to him, and Anya just wants her freedom. When Cass and Anya come together, neither were expecting the instant spark between them. Cass sure wasn’t expecting the fire and spirit Anya gave him.
I enjoyed everything about Anya. She was full of life and bravery but also wielded a kind, pure soul. I loved her bite. She was sassy and mature in all the right ways. She really finds her strength and that was enchanting to watch play out.
As soon as I finished the book, I immediately wrote to one of the authors and asked if I could marry Cass. THAT’S how much I loved him. I’m sure my hubs won’t mind. ;) Seriously though, Cass was a complicated character. He seemed tough and full of anger, but he has layers, people! LAYERS! And I loved watching each and every one of those layers get peeled back by Anya.
The Wrap Up:
Fewings and Harrison made an amazing duo. This story had lots of twists and turns, ups and downs, and a slow burn that really kept me glued to the pages needing to see what happened next. THE RAVISHING is a must-read, slow-burn romance you will devour in one sitting!
