Publisher's summary

Oran
Lina Schultze is a pawn.
A shiny piece of plastic I’ll use in my plan for revenge.

I’ll seduce her. Claim her.
Then flaunt my acquisition in front of her ex, Lawrence Wellington—
The man I plan to destroy.

Once my mission is complete, I’ll send Lina packing.

She’ll be the easiest and most … pleasurable part of my vengeance.
Charming her away from a man old enough to be her father won’t be an issue.

And if it comes down to it, I’m not above using force.

Lina
Oran Byrne has made his intentions clear—
He’ll stop at nothing to have me.

But he’s just like every other rich, entitled asshole.
He doesn't know me.
All he sees is a pretty object to be possessed and discarded.

They all underestimate me.

I’ve come back to the Olympus Club for a reason,
And I won’t let anything stop me,
Least of all a smooth-talking criminal with arsenic on his tongue.

If Oran expects me to fall into his open arms,
He’s in for a world of disappointment.

*Vicious Seduction is the fourth book in The Byrne Brothers series. Each book in the series features a different couple and can be listened to as a standalone with a happily ever after, but for maximum enjoyment, follow the recommended listening order. A dark romance with adult themes, Vicious Seduction may not be suitable for sensitive audiences as it deals with matters of past sexual assault.

A Note from the Author: Rivals to lovers has never been as deliciously seductive as Oran and Lina’s story. Bold, determined, and ruthless, these two go head-to-head, and the result is explosive in the most delectable way. Get ready for sexual tension dripping from every captivating page!

For those of you who are new to me, I write what I'd call "mafia lite." My heroes are hardened criminals with soft spots for their heroines. There may be violence and cruelty in my books, but never between the main characters. Enjoy!

❤️ LOVED THIS ENEMIES-LOVERS SLOW-BURN ❤️

Jill Ramsower is an auto buy for me because always delivers a great immersive story that I can’t stop listening to.. well her skills and the great voice acting by the chosen narrators. And Oran and Lina’s romance was one of those stories.

Oran, secretive and hell bent on revenge and destruction.. Lina, with baggage, secrets and a missing sister to find. Both heading down the same dark path to find answers.. answers they each hold close. Oh, if only they could, or would, trust each other.. but trust won’t come easy.. or soon. And Oran’s revenge takes a sidestep with a change of plans when he’s inexplicably drawn to his pawn Lina, when he becomes possessive over who touches her and will kill to protect his ‘fake’ fiancé. Lina is on a mission, she’s strong and she doesn’t trust men’s intentions - and that includes Oran. So let the moves, and battles, and fireworks, and slow-burn, and heat, and revelations commence.

Worth a credit? Yes, a very enjoyable and delicious push n pull with mystery, chemistry, verbal clashes, tingles, tension, murder, blackmail and so much more. And the stellar voice acting by Jason and Jo brought the characters and feels to life making this listen entertaining, engaging and very easy on the ears.

Trying to finish.

The female narrator is ruining this book. Shes like nails on a chalkboard cringe. Is she whining or what? What is the deal with the crybaby nasally tone? It doesn’t fit the character. Is this maybe how the author views this character? I’ve listened to other books by the author and I know she’s picked better narrators in the past….
Jason is saving book and the reason I’m not getting a refund… wasting the book because I’m just skipping her parts at this point. I have no clue what the heck is going on. The story seems like I would like it. But her voice is just not working for me. Shes narrated other books I’ve listened to and I’ve been able to tolerate her. But this is just so annoying. 20.00 + dollars for a credit. Audible should allow us to listen to a sample of both narrators. For the cost it’s become an issue.
I listen to 100s of books a year while traveling for work… a narrator can make or break a book. I’m just not sure I can handle this anymore.
3 stars because I’m half way through and If I read the book it would have been better. Jason Clarke is doing a good job on the male narration.

Oran & Linas Story

I've been so excited to hear Oran & Lina's story!

So I'll be honest, this was a completely different side of Oran than what I was expecting, but I was here for it! The man had a softer side then I imagined, and I loved seeing how protective he was over Lina. He certainly had the role down as the older, protective one of the family.

Lina is a total badass! The woman has been through it and is a true survivor. Her willingness and length she goes to battle her own demons in order to protect the ones she loves was great to see in an FMC.

I loved the story, and it was a great wrap-up to the series. The narrators were both new to me, and I felt like they did a great job. They conveyed the emotions to match the tone of the story and hooked me in.

Great Dark Mafia Romance!

This is the fourth book in The Byrne Brothers Series, a Dark Mafia Romance. This is a series of interconnected stories. Oran and Lina’s story is entertaining, passionate, and captivating. Their chemistry is sizzling hot. Oran is handsome, enigmatic, possessive, powerful, and protective. Lina is beautiful, strong, and determined. They are opposites attract, and they are perfect together. I liked the mystery, the secrets, and the twists and turns. The supporting characters are great. Jason Clarke and Jo Raylan did an excellent job bringing these characters and this story to life. I enjoyed it. I highly recommend this series. #TheNextStep

Bravo!!!!!

Bravo!!!!!
Vicious Seduction is one heck of a stellar read!!!!
It seems like I've been waiting years for Oran Byrne’s book. Lol
But let me tell you, it was so worth the wait. Oran’s story will have you swooning like a cat in heat!

Jill Ramsower just captured the essence of Oran and Lina so beautifully. The storyline rolls off the pages, and there is no way you could put it down. It's just another brilliant 5-star novel by Jill.

The audiobook is superb with the added Narrated by Jo Raylan & Jason Clarke. They just made the audiobook flow so quickly.

Rating for FN

First let me say the story I love; I read the ebook and loved it. My 3-star narrating review is not for Jason Clark because he is awesome, but the female narrator just did not do it for me. She did not match his energy for this story which pains me to say this because I absolutely love Jill's audiobooks and Jason Clarke and the story, but I was not a fan of the female narrator. I have listened to her in other books, so I am not sure if it was just this story or just her style. Oran's story was great though and Jason Clarke did a fantastic job.

Fantastic Story & Narration🎧Gripping & Intense!

Jill Ramsower pens another thrilling romantic suspense set in her amazing “Bryne Brothers’ series. This book features Oran Byrne and Lina Schultze and their paths cross while both are on a mission of their own. Oran sees Lina as an opportunity of revenge, except Lina wants nothing to do with him, but he is resourceful and gives her no choice. Oran is ruthless and determined to get what he wants regardless of what they want or need, but he met his match in Lina. Neither one trust each other, or know what the other is up to, but that does not stop them from moving forward. I despised Lina’s mother and stepfather and who they were involved with, they were evil and depraved and Lina was in way over her head. She may not have known what she was in for, but Byrne was always a step ahead of her. I loved all the layers of this story, the writing, plot and world building are fantastic, as are the character growth and development. This book captivated my attention from start to end, the story has plenty of drama, angst, twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and steamy romance. Jill Ramsower, thank you for another amazing story and the wild and exciting ride!

🎧📚🎧Jo Raylan and Jason Clarke did a fabulous job bringing these characters and story to life. Their portrayal of each character was spot-on, giving each their own voice, making it easy to follow along and tell who was who. I loved how they took each role and made it their own, sounding believable and just as I imagined the character would sound. Clarke nailed it as Oran, intense and dangerous with a side of arrogance, definitely a man who knows who he is, what he wants and gets it. Raylan was just as amazing as Lina, strong headed, determined and fierce. Both were fantastic performing the roles of the secondary characters, too. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the characters’ emotions and had you feeling them all. These entertaining storytellers are a pleasure to listen to and their narration elevates this story to another level. Thank you for another amazing listen.

Rivalry and Desire

This story has an intense storyline and complex characters. Lina Schultze and Oran Byrne's tumultuous relationship kept me on the edge of my seat, filled with rivalry and desire. Despite their initial animosity, their chemistry was undeniable. I appreciated Lina's strength and determination, refusing to be a pawn in Oran's revenge scheme. The intricate plot, filled with twists and turns, kept me guessing until the end. While the book delved into dark themes of betrayal and manipulation, it also explored the power dynamics of love and control. This book was a gripping read that satisfied my craving for romance with a hint of danger.
