From USA Today Bestseller Ava Harrison comes a steamy, slow-burn romance with a twist.

Eight years ago, I gave Grayson Price a piece of my heart.
To him, I was the strange girl whose mom had just abandoned her.
To me, he was a savior, an anchor, someone who stood beside me on that beach.
The next time I saw him, I was twenty, and he was thirty-six.
He didn't remember me.

5 FORBIDDEN CROWNS

I absolutely love Grayson and River. These two are more than just a lust filled forbidden nature, there is a real, authentic relationship that exemplifies everything we love in a good romance.

Grayson is the stoic and often abrasive hero. As the story progresses readers understand the motivation behind closing himself off to others. River is the younger, free spirited heroine who has her own insecurities. These two, however are kismet, and I love who they bec

She was an itch I needed to scratch, an addiction I needed to kick, but I needed a few more fixes before I gave her up.


The second I read the blurb to Entice, I knew this would be my first Ava Harrison book. I'm a sucker for a forbidden romance, and it just doesn't get more forbidden than your father's best friend.

An age-gap romance is not always an easy one to pull off, but Ava Harrison handled this effortlessly. With fifteen years between them, there's something about the con

5 BEAUTIFUL HEARTFELT STARS!! Beautiful Story that will touch your heart all over. There are so my feels in Grayson and River's story...I am not sure where to start. These two need each other through their struggles and the journey is tough, but so worth the read. Ava Harrison is one of those authors that grabs your heart and holds on until the last word. This is one book you need to 1-Click.

4.5 stars for River and Grayson 💞!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is the first book I've read by Ava Harrison and I will just say that I like it.

I love to read age-gap romance but only if that age-gap is not too big.

So, I was a little afraid that I will not like this story because this is a forbidden story between twenty-one years old girl and her father's best friend.

But, age-gap between wasn't that big how I was expected.

"Entice" is slow-burn romance in which River is the one who has a crush on her father's best f

Forbidden lovers like myself will have no choice but to gravitate toward this book because of the synopsis. It’s a well known fact that we always want something we can’t have and the allure of walking a dangerous line for something that could be the most incredible thing but have the ability to complicate lives, is what keeps us so intrigued and secretly wanting more.

At twelve years old, River Reed knew that there was something special about her father's best friend Grayson. It’s been nine years

I really wanted to love this book as the subject matter is right up my alley (fathers best friend romance). However, there were many areas in the book that disappointed me. First and foremost, I like a book that SHOWS me the love, the infatuation, and the budding of the relationship. This simply didn't happen. Rather than showing us through actions and declarations we are basically TOLD she loved Grayson from a y

3.5 stars

age gap, father’s friend, forbidden, a little enemies to lovers, push and pull, fwb, grumpy and semi reclusive H who is NOT a man ho, likeable h who has abandonment issues and cares deeply, semi slow burn in the first half, LOTS of sexual tension and cute and sweet moments...

what’s not to love?

BUT...

last half was just meh for me. they were so cute and sweet but too much fade to black scenes and time jumps for me and not a lot happening so i ended up skimming it.

- 3.5 stars -

Entice was a straight-forward, a bit taboo, contemporary romance. The main character is River, who has a crush on her father's friend Grayson, who is 15 years older than her. She first met him when she was 12, but then her father and Grayson had a falling out, so it has been years since she last saw him. When River hears that her father is meeting Grayson after all these years, she can't resist and tags along. Grayson feels a strong a

5 Star Review Entice by Ava Harrison

Entice is an extremely well written story that blew me away. It was a wonderful book to read and Ava Harrison held me captive from the first to the last page as she wove her story.

Grayson Price, just the name sends shivers up and down my spine; a man struggling to come to terms with numerous changes in his life and River Reed, the young woman who has been in love with him for years. Both Gray and River have issues that have impacted their lives and it was int

3.5 stars

River’s carefree childhood, living with her mother, is completely uprooted when she is delivered to her father’s doorstep one night, at 12 years old. Why would her mother think that living with him would be good for her? The only good thing that happened that night was meeting Grayson Price, he sat with her on the beach and gave her the chance to be alone but not feel alone.

Eight years later River is now a 20 year old woman, on the cusp of turning 21. She has grown very close to her fat

I’ve read just about all of Ava Harrison’s books and loved all of them thus far.

River and Grayson are no exception. While this book was a bit taboo, and River had some insecurities, it was enough to keep you hooked, not a lot of drama, a little bit of angst, with a whole lot of love from Grayson.

I’m anxious to know if Jaxson has a story. With that being said I’ll wait patiently for the next book.

Ava blew me away again. This book was a beautifully written, heartwarming, taboo, steamy story. What happens when you fall for your Dad's best friend? Nothing good comes of it right? Or does it?

Shelves: age-gap, dirty-talk
I read this book last night and if I'm being totally honest, I don't remember the story. like at all. Its like I didn't even read the book lol

I'm too lazy to actually write a review so I could maybe "try" to write one later of whatever I remember which is close to nothing smh

„Don’t be afraid of the unknown. Don’t look up and realize the years have passed, and you have missed it. Live life now. Love now.”


Entice is a perfect title for this story, because it’s extremely seductive and alluring. This taboo romance will melt your heart and make you swoon! I love age gap and forbidden note in romances and with such a male specimen like Grayson Price I feel like I’ve won a lottery. Older, level-headed, smart, successful and sexy as sin, he’s a walking fantasy. You won’t be

Once again, Ava has gone and knocked it out the park and delivered an emotionally, angsty, all-consuming and addicted book that I couldn’t put down. I managed to devour this bad boy in a matter of hours, and now I’m paying for it with one hell of a book hangover.
But would I have it any other way? Definitely not. Ms. Harrison words have a way of pulling me in and keeping me tied down and as you read these words I can’t help but picture it all in my head playing out... and Entice was the exact sam

River was perfect in the way she softened Gray's heart. Feeling the two of them come together was a journey worth taking ❤️❤️❤️

Grayson, aka Gray, is a man that carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He's a family man through and through, but he keeps romantic attachments at arms length. He has his reasons, but once River steps into his orbit be realizes his need to live and love. So begins his struggle to open his heart and take a risk he never thought he would.

I received an ARC of this from a Facebook giveaway

I read this in two sittings: before bed and when I woke up to the afternoon. I couldn’t start my Sunday without finishing this book down. “One more chapter” became the motto from 60-80% through the book. After that, I was near the end, so what is the point of stopping?

I enjoyed this book so much and I think it’s one of the best age gap books done to date. I loved how nothing happened for a long time and even though the interest and attraction was

I am a huge fan of both, Ava Harrison’s books and forbidden romances, so when I saw this book was coming out I couldn’t wait.

You might think this is just the story of a young girl and her father’s best friend having an affair. But it’s so much more than that. Yes this is a story of that but it’s also the story of two people who have had things happen to them in the past, and because of those things they have issues trusting and loving others. They want to be together but can they be with all the

There is always strong need to taste forbidden fruit.

Age gap romance with gleams of enemies to lover’s trope is what my romantic soul likes the best and author Ava Harrison gave me everything what I need with this book.
Captivating story kept me sleepless to the late hours of the night. I was very intrigued to discover if the relationship between two people not only divided by age difference but foremost that the hero was heroine father's best friend, had a chance to survive.

Grayson Price is handsome and a grouch! He’s also a successful business man and the head and eldest of his family. In “Entice” he is also attracted to a beautiful woman in her early twenties. I loved the journey these two went on. Ava wrote this forbidden love story with depth and wit. “Entice” as it all, romance, angst, swoon, heartbreak, and redemption. Entice had me invested in Grayson and River. They had personal obstacles to overcome which added the depth to their story. I was rooting for t ...more

The blurb to this book hooked me right in, an emotional forbidden romance between a girl and her father’s best friend… Sign me up! With just the right amount of angst and drama, this passionate and intense love story is an engaging read from start to finish and I really enjoyed it.

River is only 12 years old when she meets Grayson. She has literally just been left by her flighty mother on the doorstep of a father she doesn’t even know, and it’s Grayson who comes to h

I do love me some forbidden/age gap lovin’, so when this baby popped up I decided to give it a go and though it did drag for me in some spots, in the end I really enjoyed River and Grayson’s journey. It was fun, frustrating, sweet, smexy and swoon worthy and when everything was said and done, I found myself wanting to spend more time with them and their families.

I loved River and Grayson, I did, but the baggage these two carried around wa heavy. River is a mix of bold and mischi

Ava Harrison is the goddess of angsty, sexy, all the feels, believable reads and this book is all of those things and more. I love an age gap romance and not only is Entice an age gap, but also a dad’s best friend story. Hello! Yes, please! I loved the touch of forbidden with this one. Her words draw me in and leave me reeling. Every. Darn. Time. They’re beautiful and angsty, and real - there are always real emotions and fears in her books that keep me turning the page…or avoiding that pause but ...more
