The Most Scandalous Ravensdale by Melanie Milburne

Reviewed by Helen | 5 Stars

This is the fourth book in the Ravensdale series and what a beauty it is I have thoroughly enjoyed them all so far and was eagerly awaiting the last Ravensdale Kat although her journey to become a Ravensdale is far from what her brothers and sister had and Kat is feisty and so loveable as family lawyer Flynn Carlyon will find out.

Kat Winwood is an only child with a single mother and has led a very under privileged life moving around with her mother but she has always wanted to be an actress and has worked hard to get a start. Just before her mother passes away she finally tells Kat who her father is, none other than the famous actor Richard Ravensdale wow Kat is a love child and when her father sets his lawyer Flynn on the case to get Kat to attend a party to meet him and her brothers and sister and Flynn is nothing but persistent while Kat keeps refusing but with the spark between them this starts a journey for Kat that will change her life in such a great way.

Flynn Carlyon never loses and he will get Kat to this party. Flynn has been through a failed relationship that changed his life and he has issues from his childhood that add to his determination to stay single but this pull that Kat causes is troubling Flynn, and when she moves next door to house sit and there is a small accident that brings them closer together and with Cricket Flynn's dog added to the mix there is not denying the electrical spark between them.

I loved this story it is so very sensual and moving as Kat who needs a bit of confidence building and the gorgeous Flynn journey to a beautiful HEA one that will have you smiling. This book was such an awesome read with characters that are so real and alive and the internal dialogue from Kat will have you laughing and with Kat finally meeting her family and becoming a part of a proper family. I can highly recommend this one you will not be disappointed MS Milburne knows how to pull a reader in with her magical stories thank you for another fabulous story that will be on my keeper shelf.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story

What a delight is was to read Flynn and Kat's happy ever after!

Flynn has featured through out the Ravensdale series as the lawyer responsible for hunting down the Ravensdale's illegitimate daughter.  Flynn is absolutely taken with aspiring theatre actress Kat and in The Most Scandalous Ravensdale, he manages to have her house sit next door after Kat relentlessly avoiding him and even losing jobs for it.  Top of his priority list is to get her to "the party" but as he gets to know her more, getting to "know" Kat more becomes top of his priority list.  Kat has absolutely no desire to meet the man who paid to get rid of her but is quite attracted to Flynn and together the two, often very very humorously start building a friendship.

What I loved most about this book was Melanie Milburnes humor and way with words.  Absolutely delightful.   Some of my examples are:

She got out of her car and pretended she didn’t notice how out of place it looked sandwiched between his showroom-perfect BMW and the silver Mercedes. It looked like a donkey at the starting gates at Royal Ascot.

Nothing would have given her more pleasure than to smash up his pride and joy. To reverse her car at full throttle time and time again. Crash. Bang. Crash. Bang. Crash. Bang.

He gave a loose shrug of a very broad shoulder. Did he row for England? Work out? Lift bulldozers in the gym?

He ducked back out from under the crime-scene tape in his mind that blocked him from thinking of how desperate he had felt back then.

Something that made this story unique was Kat's conversations with herself.  She talked to herself to sort situations and it was really really funny and quite cute!  Loved it!

Refreshing story and a fitting wrap up to end the Ravensdales.

Kat Winwood cannot seem to get away from hotshot lawyer Flynn Carlyon. Kat does not want to be associated with the Ravensdale’s after how her father treated her mother. Kat has had nothing but a troubled upbringing thanks to her father. Her father is non-other than the Richard Ravensdale and she is the unwanted secret love child. 

She is short on cash and she house sits for a family with a cat. Now she finds out that Flynn is her neighbor. First he is at the coffee shop she works at then now at the house next door. Can she ever be rid of him? Kat after her mother passed away has made a living for herself and had paid for her mother’s funeral. That was has left her a little more short on funds than normal. 
Having read the other books in the Ravensdale Scandals series I had to read this one and it certainly did not disappoint me.

Would Kat and Flynn hook up since they were now neighbors at least for a while? Melanie Milburne books will get you hooked and you will not be able to put it down!

Writing a review for a Melanie Milburne book is not difficult because she writes nothing but fabulous books. This is the conclusion of her series and again she has written a story that you will not put down till finished so leave enough time and have no interruptions. This is about the Kat Winwood, the rightful Ravensdale heir, that doesn't want to be found and is contented in her life but that won't happen with Flynn Carlyon. Flynn never accepts defeat and he is cynical enough to use what ever means he must to get Kat to bend to his will. Kat has had nothing but heartache over the scandalous heritage so she wants no part of it. Two strong willed people one Fantastic Author and you are in for a wonderful story . Loved it and every one of them if its by Ms. Milburne its a guaranteed 5 star book. loved every one of them.

Melanie Milburne saved the best for last with this fourth and final book in the Ravensdale Scandals series! Leading up to this one, we saw the three Ravensdale children find true love and start their happily-ever-afters, and in this book, we get to meet the secret love-child of their father that we've heard so much about.

Kat Winwood wants nothing to do with her father, whose identity she only recently learned. She doesn't trust him or anyone associated with him, but unfortunately his hotshot lawyer won't take no for an answer!

Flynn Carlyon is not only the Ravensdale family's trusted lawyer, but also a dear family friend. He's determined to bring Kat into the family fold ... but he also has his own reasons for not walking away when she rejects his overtures. The sizzling attraction that has been between them since they first met burns hot! Will he be able to convince her to give in to it

THE MOST SCANDALOUS RAVENSDALE  is a highly sensual romance filled with emotions and drama. Author Melanie Milburne brought this miniseries of The Ravensdale Scandals and I’ve been on the edge of my seat to read about all the Ravensdales. It is a tale of family scandals, betrayal and redemption. This story would enthrall a reader and keep her hooked until the very last page. I finished this story in one sitting, as I was eager to discover what happened next.

Highly recommended for all readers of romance. 

Review by Amanda

I have been anticipating this story for a long time. I wanted to read all about Kat Winwood’s journey since she sashayed into the Ravensdale clan’s lives. She piqued my interest from the start and now I get to tell you my verdict on her new life. The fourth book in the Ravensdale miniseries, The Most Scandalous Ravensdale by Melanie Milburne is one heck of a story. Drama abounds between the pages and there is never a dull moment. The entertainment quota is high and the romance between Flynn Carlyon and Kat Winwood sizzles! This is one hot story you wouldn’t want to miss. Ms. Milburne writes with an easy flow as she sheds light into the lives of her characters bringing out their depth, their soul to the eyes of the reader. 

Kat Winwood never knew her father growing up, however on her mother’s death bed her mother—who’d raised her singlehandedly—reveals a life changing truth. The identity of her father… From that moment on, Kat’s life had never been the same. Then in walks her father’s lawyer, a man set in his ways. What happens between them will keep you entranced until the end as their story unfolds!

Highly Recommended
