    Avenge: Introduction and Chapter 1

    INTRO: <br>
    Oh, hi there! I guess I should introduce myself. I'm Francis Ferdinand, and I'm 22 years old, and I live in Chicago. This is the story of my life. Well, the most interesting part, anyway. It all began on one mid-Spring evening, when I was driving home with my feonce, Melanie... <br>
    CHAPTER 1: <br>
    With the way she had her hand on my shoulder, and the captivating look she was giving me, I was having a hard time keeping my eyes on the road, and an even harder time keeping the car between the painted lines. My breathing was labored, and whether it was from her or from all the concentrating, I had no idea. <br>
    "Melanie," I said. "You're making it hard for me to focus." I could hear the worry in my own voice. <br>
    Malanie removed her hand, huffing in fake frustration. "You're no fun, Francis." She replied. <br>
    "I'm serious. Our wedding is only a few days away. How can we be married if we're dead?" I asked. <br>
    "I was just kidding. Geez. We aren't even wed yet, and we're bickering like some old couple." She said, a smile on her face. <br>
    I didn't reply, and instead turned on the radio. A news broadcast had just come in as I turned it on. <br>
    "The famous serial killer and rap<_>ist, Tobias Campbell, has recently broken out of prison," It said. "He was last seen in southern Chicago. The local police are busy trying to hunt down this criminal before he becomes a threat. If anyone has any information, please call-" It stopped as I turned it off, not in the mood to hear it. We rode in silence the rest of the way to her house. <br>
    Before she got out, I gave her a goodnight kiss. A few moments after she disappeared into the house, her father came out and called my name. "Francis! You wouldn't mind helping me load these guns into the truck before you leave, would you?" <br>
    Oh yeah, Melanie's father, Robert, owns a firearms store. The man knows how to use those guns just as well as he knows how to sell them, and he's pretty good at selling them. <br>
    "Sure, Robert." I replied, getting out of the car. He had several large boxes of firearms sitting on the front porch, ranging from pistols to hunting rifles. It only took us ten minutes at most to get them loaded into his truck so they could be taken to the shop in the morning. <br>
    As I was driving away, looking in the rearview mirror, I thought I saw a dark figure slip into Melanie's bedroom window. I dismissed it as a trick of the light. <br>
    The last thought I had before I crashed on my bed was how happy we would be after we were married. <br>
    When I awoke in the morning, it was not my alarm clock that woke me. It was the phone. Since there was no phone in the bedroom, I had to race downstairs to get it. When I answered the phone, the police were on the other end with bad news... very bad news. <br>
    Please excuse any mispellings or grammatical errors. If I get 5 good reviews, I will continue the series.

    Yates had me hooked right from the prologue of this novel.  I found myself guessing and second guessing what would happen next.  Yates had my pulse racing throughout, both from the suspense and the heat created between the main characters.  I devoured this novel.  

    This author’s creativity and ability to charm her audience are put together in a well written package that you won’t be able to put down.  Not only is this a brilliantly crafted story, but it is also a hard hitting tale.  This novel is so much more than just your typical romance, and the romance itself also has an extra shot of adrenaline added in.  Yates uses narrative &amp; description to her advantage, painting this world before her readers’ eyes.  She also packs a very powerful message in this captivating novel.  It was a very refreshing thought.  

    The main characters’ actions spoke louder than words in this novel.  Yates has created the perfectly imperfect couple to take this story forward.  The raw realism in their characters makes them oh so human and impossible to ignore.  Even if you can’t relate to one of the characters Yates’ development makes them very easy to understand.  

    Yates combines eloquence, sass, and spice to capture your heart, mind and soul.  She has created a novel that stands out in a sea of literature.  This is definitely a must read.

    Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    I love her books. I stumbled across one of her HP books earlier

    I love her books. I stumbled across one of her HP books earlier this year (maybe late last) and fell in love. She wrings emotion out of you like no HP author I've run into before.  Avenge Me was no exception to that trend.

    I didn't know what I was going to get when I went into this book, but it was bound to be good, given Ms. Yates's talent. There was the old scandal which involved a friend of Austin's killing herself 10 years ago which caused a rift and unyielding hatred between Austin and his father, Jason - publicly Jason is a noted philanthropist and women's rights advocates, privately he is anything but (details of which come out more and more through the other books in this series). Austin wants nothing more than to see his father brought down.

    He's at a party (the annual party at which his acquaintance killed herself ten years earlier) when he spies Katy (the caterer). Sparks fly and he's distracted, ending up in bed with her in a very, VERY hot, and surprisingly dom/sub capacity. What interested me most about the relationship between Katy and Austin was Austin's absolute hatred of the &quot;dark&quot; dominant side of himself. I found it interesting that he fought so hard against it, seeing only that it was reminiscent of his father. Katy helps him heal.

    Speaking of Katy, Katy has her own axe to grind against Jason Treffen because it was her sister that killed herself all those years ago. She wants to find proof in Jason's own records to convict him of driving her sister to suicide. 

    Revenge brings these two together and as the first entry in this trilogy, it was a phenomenal thing to watch as they ground the knife into Jason. Oh, it was just the beginning (the culmination of the take-down doesn't happen in this book), but what a freaking beginning.

    I cannot say enough good things about this book. It was delicious. It was satisfying. And man, oh man, I couldn't WAIT to read the rest of the series after reading this first book!

    Check it out! Five whole-heartedly dark gargoyles for Ms. Yates and Avenge Me.
