I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.

His name is Michael Crist.

My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.

But I noticed him.

I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.

Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.

Because he’s finally noticed me.


Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.

My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.

Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.

In my city.


The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.

We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

***Corrupt is a stand-alone dark romance with no Cliffy

10 stars!

HOW am I supposed to write a review when my mind is still processing this days after finishing the book?!? WHAT.DID.I.JUST.READ?  Holy mother of all Gods.

From the moment I learned about this book I was mesmerized before even reading it. I was also scared, like genially, truly afraid of what I would read once I started.

Rika comes from a wealthy well established family with great name. She is taken under the wings or their neighbors and family friends after her father’s death and while her mother was trying to cope herself with their loss. The family had two sons Michael and Trevor. Trevor was on Rika from day one and did everything in his power so that she would finally give in and see his love for her. Michael is the older brother who can’t stand even the very sight of Rika. He on the other hand is doing all the opposite things from Trevor. He seems to despise Rika and doesn’t even give her the light of day.

Michael’s three best friends end up in jail for 3 years. Rika seems responsible for that action. They are angry, they are bitter and they crave revenge. That is what is holding their spirits up. Time will come. She will pay. They will give her hell like she deserves. That time is now. Let the games begin!

I have NEVER read a book like this, like EVER! A book that held me on the edge ALL THE TIME. A book that took over my mind and consumed me completely.

This is a pure brilliant masterpiece.

I didn’t sleep, I didn’t eat, and time stopped while reading it.  I was on autopilot and had just one mission and that was to read more, more, more of this amazing but terrifying story. I’m not kidding when I say it scared me to the core. I had to pause after some scenes and to regain myself. You could never predict what was coming next. And every new revelation knocks your socks off and leave you with a desire to keep going like crazy.

I ABSOLUTELY loved every part of this story.

Every word, every line, EVERYTHING!

The writing was out of this world and I am wondering what is going on in this authors head when she was able to pull this one off?!? The way the story was unrevealing itself and all the events that lead to the heart of this plot. I was feeling it all. The excitement, the secrets, the passion, the taste for revenge, the love. There are not that many XXX scenes in this book but those that were in there left me speechless and with a desire of wanting to be in them BADLY!

I will definitely recommend this amazing book for everyone to read. But be sure to rest well because you will NOT be sleeping until you finish this baby. Buckle up for you are going for a ride of your life!

And last but not least I would like to THANK Penelope Douglas for sharing this with us. The one of a kind story that I want more of. I don’t think I will ever be satisfied. Definitely in my KEEP file!
