I’m not going to stop. I’m going to drown in you, and then I’m going to do it again. And again. Until I’ve had my fill.

Zoe Brook has been sent to clean up a bad boy’s reputation. And that’s just fine - she knows all about hiding the sins of the past. But Hunter Grant, sports hero and renowned womaniser is so much...more than she ever expected.

Money, passion and power come

Argh! I don’t know why, but this author isn’t a good match for me.

While others are saying this is the best Presents book they’ve ever read, I’m thinking that there was too much in the way of internal monologue and description and nothing in the way of dialogue or action.

You’d have the hero ask a question, and then the heroine would think about her feelings for five pages before she responded. I had to keep going back and forth to remind myself what the question was!

This isn’t the first time I’ve

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date June 24, 2014


Hunter Talbot Grant III, sports figure du jour, wealthy beyond measure and disreputable by choice, has cultivated a reputation that masks the shadows of his past. When the opportunity to ensure financial destruction for Jason Treffen arises, he can't refuse. But first he must
Originally reviewed for Tea and Book.

In Scandalize Me, Caitlin Crews tells the story of Hunter Talbot Grant III, scion of society and NFL Bad Boy and Zoe Brook PR Agent extraordinaire with a secret and a need for revenge.

Zoe Brook has lived in a special sort of hell for ten years. While she has carved a place for herself as one of the best PR Agent around, she has also had to live under the thumb of Jason Treffen. At one time he literally held her life in his hands and forced her into a unique f

Zoe only saw Hunter as a means to an end. She was going to use him to get her revenge and that was it. It didn't matter that he was a gorgeous hunk of an ex-pro football player…or that he could immediately heat her up with just a look. When Zoe first came looking for him, Hunter only saw a hot babe. He thought she was just one more woman looking to get a piece of his body. So, she wants to clean up his image? He doesn't really care about his image, but he'll give Zoe a chance to show him what sh ...more

I thought the premise of this book was intriguing and original, but the story moves at the pace of a snail.
Home. Love. Books.

I think part of the reason why this series intrigued me is that it is a series by three different authors. I really like the idea of three different authors, three different voices and writing styles, existing in the same world, and creating work that fits together in order to propel a plot line forward. I really did enjoy the first book in this series, so I was looking forward to reading this book.

I have to say t
Wow. This isn't your usual Harlequin book. It far surpasses any I've read so far in theme.

This book was vividly harsh in the theme and I found myself aching with the main character. I found tears in my eyes and angry in behalf of her for everything she went through.

Hunter Grant is a man whose been through an immeasurable loss. The first person he ever loved, kills herself. He blames himself when he should blame Jason Treffen the man who was the root of it all.

Scandalize Me by Caitlin Crews (Harlequin Presents, 2014; 272 pgs)

Opening Sentence: Zoe Brook strode into the exclusive strip club, hidden away beneath a discreet sign on a side street in an otherwise upscale Manhattan neighborhood, like an avenging angel on the warpath at last.

Zoe Brook is one of the top public relations agents out there, and she's set her sights on the wealthy former NFL player Hunter Grant III. She intends to use him in order to exact her revenge on the well known and admired
Hunter Talbot Grant III is rich, beyond good looking and also sports figure du jour! But he's not your average rich boy wanting to ruffle the feathers of his disapproving family by pursuing a career in sports instead of the family business. Nope this guy has so many levels of deep, dark and dangerous it's downright scary!

Then years ago he lost someone very dear to him and it set him back on so many emotional levels that the man is beyond the repair by even the best of psychologists. So he hides

The second book in this unique trilogy story is penned by Caitlin Crews and focuses on Zoe, a PR professional and her work with Hunter. Again the characters are all connected with a common thread: Sarah, the young woman who jumped to her death ten years ago, and Zoe is convinced that Hunter was part of the reason.

For his part, Hunter has been racked with guilt over that fateful night, an on-again-off-again relationship with Sarah where in a fit of pique he ignored her calls for help, It was eas

This is a review of all 3 books in the series - I don't think there are spoilers but be forewarned...

PJV Quickie: The Fifth Avenue Trilogy is an interesting concept in storytelling: 3 books, 3 authors, 1 story arc spanning the length of the 3 books. I liked how each book had a different "feel" to it, not just a different couple as main characters.

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Interesting trilogy where each book is based around one person from the group of three friends who've grown up in the past ten years, and now circumstances are forcing them to look back on one devastating night where death roamed, and they ignored it. Now they want and need to make amends, and be certain that no-one else will get caught in that same trap.
I read Austin's story and enjoyed it but with reservations. Now having read

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Since reading the novella, I was most excited for Hunter's story, because of the depth and emotion he was clearly hiding. And I was not disappointed.

I loved this book from the beginning to the end. Zoe's character was absolutely brilliant. She's hiding a crap ton of pain underneath her hard exterior, but she's a fucking badass, plain and simple. I admire her and her confidence, even when she's putting it on just for show sometimes.

Scandalize Me is released on the 24th June 2014

This is book number 2 in the Fifth Avenue series, a trilogy of books following the lives of three men, their pasts and their loves.

Book number 1, Avenge Me from Maisey Yates kick started the story in awesome style, can book number 2 live up to it?

It does! Following Austin and Katy's tale in Avenge Me we heard a little about Hunter Grant, he was the rich jock boyfriend of Sarah Michael'

This is the second book of the Fifth Avenue Trilogy on getting revenge on Jason Treffen. The common link between Hunter, Austin, and Alex is Sarah who jumped to her death 10 years ago due to Jason. All three men feel guilty for wearing blinders and not helping Sarah, none could ever realize the true depth of pain she was in because of Jason. As we found out in book one Austin is Ja
This trilogy is getting better! I liked Avenge Me the first novel, but now, I'm sold to Hunter's capable hands! I thought I would prefer Austin's dominant behaviour, but the mix of Hunter wild side and the controlling Zoe, it was a pure blast! At least for me!

I love to read about strong, accomplished, determined woman and Zoe Brook is the perfect representation of that kind of women! Hunter is the kind of man who has everyone and everything easily, but got one of the worst star of sport fields’

In SCANDALIZE ME, you have a hot, alpha male, who is wealthy beyond measure and disreputable by choice ....

SCANDALIZE ME starts with Zoe Brook, the best PR agent in NYC, tracking down bad boy Hunter Talbot Grant, III in a strip club at ten o'clock in the morning on a weekday. Zoe sends the half-naked women at Hunter's table on their way and informs the scandalous rake that she intends on rehabilitating his image. Hunter informs the beautiful, smart-mouthed Zoe with the dark, smokey-grey eyes, th

Scandalize Me is the second installment in the "Fifth Avenue Trilogy."
What is unique about this series is the three books are written by different authors, and while there is a core group of characters, each story features a different relationship. Scandalize Me focuses on Zoe Brook-the "Olivia Pope" of Manhattan public relations, (the novel's title is a clever play on the name of the popular "Scandal" TV show), and Hunter Grant, the bad-boy former NFL player in dire need of an image makeover.

Again this is a 3 part series written by three different authors. In this one (book 2) The revenge on Jason Treffen continues. Zoe Brooks is a PR agent that can apparently works miracles and she turns her sights on Hunter and everyone knows he's a lost cause in the football world. Zoe Brooks is not all she seems though. She may really be a PR guru but she wants to use Hunter to get revenge on Jason Treffen. She was Sarah's friend and knew what was going on ten years ago. She suffered the same th ...more

SCANDALIZE ME is the second full-length book in the Fifth Avenue series, where each story takes place in a continuing timeline of how those who lost their friend Sarah Michaels to suicide ten years earlier are now working together to avenge her death by bringing down the man who caused it. You could try to read this book as a standalone, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

This is now my favorite Harlequin Presents ever and one of the very best books I've read this year. I'll review it closer to its pub date.

It's also a perfect second book in what is a riveting series.

Well done, Ms. Crews. So very very well done.
Freda Labianca
This book, for me, was not as good as the last one or the novella. For the first over 100 pages, it was this sex-cat-and-mouse-game going on that was good in the beginning but became boring after so long. I was more interested in the story and characters that connected the others I had read. Was karma going to pay the old fart a visit? I had to know and expected this book to hold some answers. Luckily at some point it did, it just took too long to get there.
I'm glad Hunter isn't an asshole for t
Scandalize Me is the second book in the Fifth Avenue trilogy. It features Hunter. He was the boyfriend of Sarah. The woman that Austin's father destroyed and the woman that Austin, Hunter, and their friend, Alex have all vowed to bring justice for against Austin's father.

I have to say that thus far, this book is my favorite. There was more substance (storyline) than just sex. Plus, I loved Zoe and her take charge attitude. She definitely showed Hunter who was boss and that is just what he neede

This is the second book in Fifth Avenue Trilogy by Caitlin Crews.
Similar to the first book in the trilogy, Avenge Me by Maisey Yates Avenge Me (Fifth Avenue Trilogy, #1) by Maisey Yates, it was a fairly quick and easy read.

Still getting over a tragic accident that occurred some 10 years ago, Hunter has fallen into a destructive path wherein his career and personal relationships are at stake. Completely self-inflicted, he has no need to want
Scandalize Me is Book #2 in the Fifth Avenue Trilogy. I found this one to start off a bit slower than the previous one. This is Hunter & Zoe's story. Hunter was the ex-boyfriend of the now deceased Sarah. Zoe was Sarah's roommate. Both Hunter and Zoe have spent the last ten years riddled with guilt over Sarah's death. Now they are ready for revenge. Once this book got going it really took off and was a real page turner. I am now really looking forward to the next book and how revenge is fina ...more

Scandalize me by Caitlin Crews
This book came in a package for reading another authors work. This is part of the 5th avenue series.
A large vendetta and Zoe Brooks wants justice for the one that is no longer. She talks to a handful and knows exactly who they have to target.
A lot of ghosts and pain suffered over the years and we realize she means business. Can she pull it off? LOTS of hot steamy sex and I felt most of the book was about that and not the plot.
Excerpt for the next in the series is in

This was a great series idea by HP. The second in the series definitely didn't disappoint. I was held riveted by Zoe's drive to get back at the monster the entire series is built around bringing down, and I liked how she used Hunter to get her closer to her goal. Hunter...ahhh, such a man. Once he understands WHY Zoe wants to get involved, he does his part. I like his pact with the other men involved in bringing Treffen down. This was a good mid-point book and I really like the build toward the ...more

Caitlin Crews discovered her first romance novel at the age of twelve, in a bargain bin at the local five and dime. It involved swashbuckling pirates, grand adventures, a heroine with rustling skirts and a mind of her own, and a seriously mouthwatering and masterful hero. The book (the title of which remains lost in the mists of time) made a serious impression. Caitlin was immediately smitten with ...more
