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 the first installment in the Devil's night series but can be read as a STANDALONE.
It is suitable for ages 18+.
Caroline's Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
(reviewed in November 2015)
I can’t remember the last time I anticipated the release of a novel so much, and this one was definitely worth the wait!
Erika aka Rika Fane has spent all her life growing up next door and with the Crist family. Her father died when she was 13 and her mother became an alcoholic. Rika and Trevor are great friends but it’s Trevor’s older brother, Michael, who has always caught her eye, and churns up feelings, good and bad, within her. She’s been desperate all her life for him to notice her, or treat her with anything other than disdain, when he does.
Michael Crist is one of the Four Horsemen. A golden child of Thunder Bay, he and his friends are virtually untouchable. Until, one Halloween, evidence of their antics are used against them, and his three friends, Kai, Damon and Will, end up serving time.
They believe that Rika betrayed them. When they are released from prison, they’re out for revenge. They plan to isolate her, use her, ruin her. Their retribution is completely diabolical.
Told in dual POV and shifting between the present and past, this novel was edgy, dark, intense and deliciously compelling. I loved reading every single word. The author has always been big on sex scenes but this novel is the hottest one yet! Full of seething emotion and desire, cruelty and hatred and, underneath it all, a burning need on both Rika and Michael’s parts for their souls to be free and truly seen.
The book ends with a few questions and untold stories about the other key characters that I hope the author will write.
It was a brilliant read and I’m so jealous of all those readers who get to read it for the first time!
