My life was meant to change when we escaped our past.
New family. New town. New school.
I find myself living in a shinier version of hell, with a devil hell bent on crushing me.
My new stepbrother, the heir to the Knight fortune and legacy, is also my senior year English teacher. He doesn’t hold back on punishing me in class.
The three Kings that rule St. Ivy and this town have also set their sights on me.
Specifically, one who seems to have a personal vendetta against me.
His callous gaze, wrathful mouth, and vengeful ways know no bounds.
His two devious best friends are no saints, with their irresistible smirks and flirty touches, some bordering on the line of possessive.
Little do they know I made a promise to myself long ago that I would never again be a possession.
They seem to think they can break me.
But these boys don’t know who they’re dealing with. I’ve faced monsters that would make them hide under their beds and piss in their pants. Monsters who taught me to put up impenetrable shields to keep me safe inside.
The irresistible torture of these manipulative Kings has me fighting my own demons.
I manage to resist the four of them until my walls slowly crack, my truths start spilling out, and I’m drawn into their secret world of lies and violence with no escape.
*Trigger Warning. Corrupt Temptation includes scenes and story lines that may be triggering to some readers. This includes self harm, dub con, light MM.
Age gap, stepbrother, teacher-student, bullying, enemies to lovers—this book has it all and is so deliciously savage you won’t be able to put it down!
This was dark and gritty. I can’t even with this one. I was glued start to finish. I can’t wait to read more.
Ooo I am obsessed with this woman! She is such a little bad a** who can’t be messed with and won’t take things lying down. These boys may be bullies, but she is never one to bow down.
Mors tua, vita mea.
The four words scrawled on a card. The four words inviting death.
When your past collides with your present and the monsters come out to play, you’re left with wounds so deep, you’re scared you’ll never heal.
I thought I’d left it all behind. I thought we got away.
How wrong was I?
Colton, Steele, Tyler, and Hawke. The four kings of St. Ivy are part of a sadistic society that is somehow entwined with my past.
I’m determined to find the link no matter the cost.
But when I start falling for their charms, the lines of betrayal seem to blur.
Lies and secrets.
They keep us connected, but how long until they tear us apart.
The temptation of savage lies has never seemed so sweet.
Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo you and your cliffhangers you evil genius.
Holy hell! If you thought the first book was a dark and tantalizing ride—you haven’t seen anything yet
The character development in this book on one of the MCs is amazing to read. The internal battle he has with himself is gripping. This story is full of dark themes and spice and I’m all here for it.
In absentia lucis, tenebrae vincunt.
Betrayal and deceit spread like spilled blood. Slow and steady, saturating everything in its path.
Until it spreads no more.
I can feel my darkness overshadowing my light. The caress of it consuming me. Breaking me.
They say you can only handle a certain amount of pain in one life. That it eventually wraps its sharp claws around you and brings you to your knees.
The bond with Colton, Tyler, Hawke and Steele is the only thing that keeps me from spiraling into the vortex of pain that has managed to carve itself into my soul.
I don’t just dance around the edges of the Brotherhood anymore. I’m groomed to play their games.
Their sinister and dark world opens my eyes to the true evil that has been in front of me this whole time.
Mel really brings the darkness in this book as we sink to new depths with the Brotherhood experiencing more of their depraved and sinister nature.
This was a dark, so dark ride, full of angst & heartache.
OMG did this series get so much better. I just finished it and I'm still reeling from it. This series sucks you in while you are reading it and you literally can't put it down because you just have to know what happens next.
