I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice.  Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.

4 moons - "Avenge Me" by Maisey Yates

Avenge Me  - Maisey Yates

Avenge Me is the first book to the Fifth Avenue Trilogy, and Maisy Yates did an amazing job on starting off the trilogy with the first main star, Austin Treffen.

In Avenge Me, we have two characters completely opposite of each other, but they have one thing in common.  They both want to seek revenge on the man that destroyed an innocent woman.  Austin lost his best friend ten years ago to something that he could have stopped. He had no idea what was happening behind close doors with his best friend, Sarah and she tried to get him to help her.  He just brushed her off and he has regretted for ten years. Katy lost her sister that night and she never thought, she would end up hooking up with a Treffen to help seek her revenge.  The kicker of the story is Austin’s own father is the villain of the story.  Austin has to take down the man that has so much power that he may end up getting caught in the crossfire as well.  Katy and Austin team up together to help start the process of bringing down Jason Treffen, but it’s not going to be easy for them both at all.

This is the first book I ever read from Maisey Yates, but after reading Avenge Me I definitely need to check out her other books.  Avenge Me is a great start to the trilogy and what is to continue in the following books.  Austin and Katy start the process of taking down Jason Treffen, it’s Austin’s other friends that are going to do more to him.  I can’t wait to find out what they manage to do to him because he definitely deserves it.  Although in Avenge Me there is an instant attraction, which threw me off a bit.  Austin is the sexy successful alpha male and Katy is the woman who is ready to be submissive to Austin.  Avenge Me has the D/s, but don’t expect the erotic elements of a typical D/s.  It’s mild compared to what I’m used to reading as far as D/s relationships.  Katy drove me crazy at times, especially at the ending on what she did to Austin.

I give this book 4 full moons and look forward to reading the next in the trilogy.  If you are a big fan of the show Revenge like I am, you will definitely want to check out the Fifth Avenue Trilogy.  I’m so glad this trilogy was made because I am missing my show Revenge, and these books are definitely helping me on patiently waiting for my show to return this Autumn.  =)

I received a complimentary copy of the book for the blog tour (from Meryl L. Moss Media Relations, Inc) in exchange for an honest review.
