In the novel AVENGE ME written by Maisey Yates, two very
different people from different walks of life want revenge
against the same man: Jason Treffen. Jason is a rich
attorney who uses women as escorts or prostitutes, in
exchange he'll pay their debts. These are usually women who
work for his firm. The two people are his son Austin and the
other is Kat, a girl with addict parents. Both have only one
thing that's brought them to this same point. Kat's sister,
Sarah is that reason. Sarah was a friend of Austin's in
school and worked for his dad. However, the work she had to
do was not on the job description, and she jumped to her
death ten years ago because she couldn't take anymore.
Kat and Austin hold Jason responsible. They both have a
plan. Neither knows the other exists until faith brings
them together. They meet, and then their lives are never the
same again. With Kat, Austin feels power over her, and it
makes him wonder if he is just like his dad. This makes him
struggle with who he is and what he wants in life. That is
other than making sure his dad pays for the death of a
friend. Kat loves the way Austin makes her feel, how
dominant he is in bed. Since that first time he looked at
her, she knew she wanted him, and then they find out that
they have more in common then they thought.
AVENGE ME by Maisey Yates is a steamy novel that left me
wanting more. With this being the second in the Fifth
Avenue series, you will want to read Take Me in order to
get several sides of the story. I think that once you read
AVENGE ME by Maisey Yates you will be hooked on the others.
TEN YEARS AGO ONE DEVASTATING NIGHT CHANGED EVERYTHING FOR
AUSTIN, HUNTER AND ALEX. NOW THEY MUST EACH PLAY THEIR PART
IN THE REVENGE AGAINST THE ONE MAN WHO RUINED IT ALL.
Austin Treffen was born into a world of privilege, but
behind its gilded doors lies a corruption so sordid New
York's elite would never believe itâ€”especially as his
infamous philanthropic father is at its core! With
everything he believed in shattered, how can Austin take
down his fatherâ€”risking his family name and those he lovesâ€”
without any proof?
Until one earth-shattering night with Katy Michaels unlocks
not only their deepest, most passionate desires but also the
key to bringing Jason Treffen's reign to an end. But with an
intense sexual attraction that combines a heady mix of
exquisite pleasure and sublime pain, will they satiate their
thirst for revenge and each otherâ€¦or lose themselves forever
in the darkness?
ExcerptTen years ago, one devastating night changed everything
for Austin, Hunter and Alex. Now they must each play
their part in the revenge against the one man who
ruined it all. Read Maisey Yates's dazzling debut of
the Fifth Avenue trilogy:
AVENGE ME * * * KATY let out a long breath
and started walking back down the empty corridor, back to
Back toward Jason Treffen.
Talking to him had just about made her lose her mind. It had
taken everything in her not to grab his glass from his hand
and pour it over his head. Then break the glass on his
face. She considered the man as good as her sister's
murderer, so she was short on charitable feelings where he
was concerned. The door to the ballroom opened, and she froze.
Oh. Her breath left her in a rush, a current of
electricity washing over her skin.
It was him.
The man whose eyes were like an endless black hole, drawing
her in, a force she couldn't deny or control. When he had
looked at her, she'd felt as if she were grounded to the
spot. She'd felt like he had looked and seen her.
Seen everything. More than that, she'd looked back and she'd
Had seen a grief in him. An anger.
It had been, in some ways, like looking into a mirror.
"It's you," he said, his voice deep, smooth. Like really
good chocolate. "I was hoping to run into you."
"Wh-why were you hoping to run into me?" she asked.
"Because you're the most beautiful woman here. Why wouldn't
I want to see you?"
"You're a flirt."
"That's the thing, I'm not really." He put his hands in his
pockets, a wicked half smile curling that sinful mouth.
"I have to get back."
She started to walk past him and he took her arm, stopped
her progress. She looked up and met cold, dark eyes.
"To who?" he asked, his voice gentle, an opposing force to
the hold he had on her.
There was something about that grip. Commanding. It spoke
to every secret fantasy that lived in the dark shadows
inside her. The parts of herself that had looked at every
man she'd even tried to date and found them lacking.
But not him. He wouldn't be lacking. Something shivered
inside her, a whisper.
He would know what you wanted.
