Book 1 in duet.
One woman. Two men.
Their romance will fuel a power that will pervade London.
From an early age, Emily lived for the violin.
Practices were a joy. Recitals were a celebration. She only felt truly alive when the meticulously crafted, finely tuned, string instrument was in her firm grasp.
You could say that Emily lived for the violin, and that it was her true love. You would have been right...

Pervade London is book one in the Pervade Duet by Vanessa Fewings. This is my very first book by Ms. Fewings. Where do I start with this? How do I describe a book to you that completely blew my mind? My emotions are all over the place. For most of this book, my heart was racing. I both cursed and proclaimed my love to the author.

Let’s start with Emily Rampling. She is a twenty three year old violinist. Music is her heart and soul. It has been since she was a small child. She has devoted her lif

Wow! I am not sure what words I can find to describe reading this story. How it made me feel, what I thought of the characters and progression - without being a spoiler - but I'll try. If you want to read the next section then stop. Don't go further:

Vanessa Fewings has once again brought light to a world and poured over romance. The story evolves from an instant connection of the heart into so much more. The characters are more than the first few glimpses. As the reader, you are not only intrigu

When I first finished this book, I had to catch my breath. It's such a rollercoaster ride from beginning to end, full of power and intrigue and mystery.

Pervade London is one of the sexiest books I've ever read. Alpha-hole James Ballad brings out the most conflicting feelings. Initially, you're drawn to that power, but as the story begins to unfold, you develop this love/hate relationship with his character. Sometimes he wields his power in such a way that makes you question his morality, but the

Emily is a gifted violinist who is relentless in pursuing the thing she wants. She dreamed of going to the London Symphony Orchestra but everything changes the moment she helped Xander.

Xander(Xavier) is the kind of man who will protect the people he cared for. His past is a mystery and as if he just wants to forget all about it.

The story gets very interesting when James comes in. He's the kind of man who gets what he wants. I totally don't like him the way he manipulates the lives of th

Simply put, PERVADE LONDON is an exquisite, masterful piece of art! It swept me away to the enchanting streets of London and lavished upon me a provocative romance between Xavier and James - two elusive men who will seduce you - and Emily, a competent heroine who will surely charm you.

I'm thrilled you've added PERVADE LONDON to your TBR list!

Writing this erotic novel (MMF) has been an exhilarating journey. I'm deeply in love with James Ballad, X. Rothschild, and Emily Rampling and can't wait for you to meet them. I hope you fall for them like I have.

Pervade London is the hottest book of 2019! Vanessa sure knows how to write them! This thrilling book about Emily, Xander/Xavier, and James will captivate you from the first chapter.

Emily is a violin protege who was encouraged by her deaf mother to take up the violin when she was 8 yo. She is attending the Academy, a prestigious school, on scholarships, and busking in the tube when she meets Xander.

What the eff did I just read is what I was thinking when I finished this book. I mean I had so many emotions going through me and I just wanted more I needed more because this story is dark and disturbing and everything in between. I mean you have love, pain, control and the most important part of this story is power. You will find that people think they have all the power and control when in reality another person is running the show. My mind was all over the place and even though I have read M ...more

Pervade London was a great 5 star read and book one in the Pervade Duet.
This was my first read from Vanessa Fewings, I was pulled right in by her writing.

It took me just a bit to get acclimated to the story but once I was, I was hooked. We meet Emily, a violinist who is attending school. Her biggest dream in life is to play in the London Symphony Orchestra. While playing her violin in the Piccadilly Circus tube station for extra money, she meets a man tha

First of all, this is my first read from this author and I'm impressed with her writing.

Clearly this is a 5 stars read, but I have mix feelings.

This is one of those books that yes grabs you from the first page to the last, blows you away with the plot and the development, but yet you still love and hate the characters and what they did.

I really liked Emily. I like her fragility and naivety, but also her fighting spirit. She doesn't give up easily, she's resilient. From the three main characters

Sadly, Not for me

Too much secrecy surrounds this book. I have enjoyed other books by this author, but this plot is just not for me.
I would have given up around 30% if not for all the 5 star ratings, i thought it must get better, and in some ways it did, but not enough for me to continue with book 2.

I’ve just finished reading this book & cannot wait for part 2!!
I was a little slow getting into it, after having been totally in love with the Enthrall series, but once I stopped trying to compare the 2 I started to really enjoy it. Emily is innocence with some inner spunk, Xavier is not the cad I initially thought he might be, & James is a complex character that you can’t help but want to learn more about. The 3 of them together... I won’t give anything away (you’ll have to read it yourself!),

I really enjoyed this book especially having not read anything by this author before. The storyline and characters were really intriguing, with suspense and romance to leave with you wanting more.

Xander and James were full of surprises and had Emily digging for more and wanting to learn as much as she could. However, the love between the three of them is real and each of them feel the same way instead of one more than the other.

The ending is a cliffhanger and I really can’t wait to rads the nex

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

I'm not quite sure how I feel about this story. It has a lot going on, which makes it interesting, but the story is told in a somewhat choppy manner. While I like that you get a different view point at times, I wish that it was a smoother transition.

Emily is strong. She is resilient and knows what she wants. I liked her right away. She has a chemistry with Xander that

The ménage between Emily, Xavier and James was so incredibly hot. Oh my’s my favorite. He is a riddle wrapped in a mystery and I crave more.

I enjoyed reading this and love the characters and storyline! This book has intrigue, suspense, romance and a lot more. The characters Xander and James are not they seem to be at first and Emily soon finds out some but wants to learn more. There is a love triangle between the three of them but do they all feel the same way about each other. I was drawn in and could not put it down till I finished reading it. The ending has a cliff hanger and I look forward to reading the next book Montego Bay !

I cried, I sighed and I envied Emily but most of all I loved this book. Vanessa Fewings has a cadence to her writing that reflects the dialogue, she is able to evoke emotions through her words that allows the reader to become one with the characters. I was sorry to see it end and am looking forward with anticipation for Montego Bay.

This book is incredible, the way Ms. Fewings weaves this story. This is the first book that I read in one sitting in years. Emily is an up and coming violinist. She meets the handsome and charming Xavier. Everything goes wrong after he mysteriously disappears. In comes James, the devil himself. He has the power to make changes that would affect many. Pervade London has me at the edge of my seat, it was hard to put down. This MMF story is intriguing and suspenseful.

This book grabbed me from the opening page. There’s a lot going on in this story. At one point my head felt like it was spinning. So many feelings going on at once I literally was out of breath by the conclusion of book one. This is so much more than just a ménage â trois story. It’s a smartly written story full of intrigue, mystery, action, education, romance and heat.

Once again, Vanessa Fewings has blown my mind.

This story gave me such a mix of emotions. Likable characters, not so likable characters, characters that you love to hate (or hate to love). Then, there's the story itself. Suspense, drama, so many feelings, and some extremely steamy scenes- don't try to sneak this one at work! This author has a way of capturing you from the first few words and taking you on a ride that makes you wonder what you just read, in the best way.
