Thank you for everyone's support on my new adventure.
I can't promise all of my readers will follow me down this rabbit hole, but I definitely love what I'm writing. This book has a "I want to read it, so I have to write it" feel just like BULLY did for me, so thank you for taking a chance and keep ...more
★★★★★! Corrupt (stand-alone, book 1 of 4). A suspenseful unfolding of a plot to revenge; greed, envy, violence, lust, deceit & in the midst of it all one of the best young alphas I have ever read!
“I only ever thought of him. Every fantasy, every orgasm…”
Books in Devil’s Night series should be read in order:
Book 1: Corrupt
Book 2: Hideaway
Book 3: Kill Switch
Book 4: Untitled
Corrupt (stand-alone) opens up to college student Erika Fane, Rika getting ready to move to a new ...more
i remember reading this, like, a thousand years ago - and bless my poor innocent ya dystopian/fantasy, hunger games/divergent reading era soul - i was appalled- DISTURBED.
i only remember a few things from this book like the fact that my hatred for betraying body syndrome originated here and the infamous steam room scene
in all seriousness tho, i was loving this book until the 65% mark where it all went downhill. the games Michael (H) and Rika (h) were playing with all that sexual t ...more
i just love everyone so much.
- another girl with no personality
- dude whose love language is violence
- the two guys with no personality
- a pedophile
the best part about this book? it's not only bad, it's also boring!!
first i struggled staying awake for 60% and then i just struggled when the plot became so bad i had five mental breakdowns!!

To say Corrupt is a dark romance is a bit of an understatement. I was not expecting this kind of book from Penelope Douglas. I was intrigued, repulsed (at times) and completely captivated while reading. The first 30% or so I struggled with the story. I didn’t know what direction it would take and I wasn’t sure if it was the book for me, but I’m so glad I carried on and finished. Once that 30% mark passed, I was unable to put it down.
Rika is in college and wants n ...more
Holy shit, Penelope Douglas, ho-leeeee SHIT.
Seriously though, all I can say:
I want to keep this spoiler free and, frankly, I'm also a little short on time. So this will be short and to the point...in theory.
Cause I honestly have no clue what I will write half the time.
It's like diarrhea of the
But anycray, I was captivated by this book from page one.
Sincerely. Completely enthralled.
I don't know what it is about Penelope Douglas, but ...more
I can understand why many loved this book, I really can. That said, it's sooo not my cuppa, that's for sure. I didn't like the way this story made me feel.

REALLY REALLY REAAAALLY LONG Rant Alert
Before we start this thing, I have to say this. I love PD. She wrote some of my all time favorite books (Taylor Marek, I’d let you be the senator of my state every day and twice on Sunday) and she is, without a doubt, an amazing writer.
Okay, now that that is out of the way, I hate this.
First of all, I re-read this just so I can rant about it be ...more
My rating is based on MY FEELINGS after reading this.
It's not an attack on the Author or people who have rated this book highly.The last time I gave a negative review on a highly rated book I got a load of abusive personal messages....this is my personal opinion.
So,I read the blurb for this and was so excited....revenge and darkness.Hell yes,I thought.
Really I should have given up quite early on.
The whole Horsemen thing was just too ...more

Three years ago, curious little Erika Fane wanted to play with the boys, so we indulged her, and she betrayed us. There was no way we'd forget.
How in the ever loving hell do I even begin reviewing this book?! Honestly. I'm completely at a loss for words. So my only way out is to be vague as shit and trust me when I tell you you'll thank me for it. You want to know absolutely nothing about this book. Even the very minute de ...more
*Warning! This review contains the description of explicit sex scene*

Okay. I need some time to come to my senses and write a few words about this... thing. Corrupt is not a dark romance, it is simply porn. I have nothing special to say about the story. Everything is so predictable and... dirty...more
Every month my friends and I go out of our comfort zones and embrace the world outside historical and contemporary romance. Thanks for accompanying me on this wild ride, sraxe!
Before I go on with the review, I will first destroy the part of my brain that understands the concepts of good writing, self respect, healthy relationships, and just plain ol' sane behaviour.

Okay. Done. Now, I'm ready to ...more
How can a book be boring and enthralling all at once?
I'll start w the characters
RIKA 'PICK ME' FANE
So I know the romance community has a lot to say abt Rika (mostly negative) but honestly, I don't mind the dumb lil twat. I actually found her quite likable 🤡 Was she ridiculously overpowered? Yes. She legit had 0 surface-level flaws (and don't tell me a 2 inch scar counts), she was 'chill', 'one of the guys', a rich innocent good girl who was secretly bad *dun dun dun*, could danc ...more
(Please note that this review contains curse words. If you don't like the F word then please don't read on).
Do not think for one minute that you will own this BOOK.
You will never own IT.
It will own YOU.
It will CORRUPT you.

Has anyone seen Penelope this evening?
Can somebody go and check the bathroom or the bar. I need her on stage.
Oh there she is!
Penelope, come on up here, love.

This story was sooo screwed up! Yet, I couldn't put it down. I loved this messed up tale of vengeance and misguided fury. I finished this book hours ago, but I'm still trying to wrap my mind around everything I read. I'm outraged and conflicted. At the same time, I'm happy for Rika and Michael.
In a nutshell, Rika was the younger neighbor that Michael lusted after. She was forbidden fruit, intended for his younger brother, his family's golden child. As much ...more
Holy crap!!! What the hell I just read? And pls somebody slap my face because Why the hell I wait so long to read this book? Arrrghh I'm so angry myself right now but oh my god, this book was freaking amazing... Loved it soooooo much!
Ps. Steam room scene was mind blowing and I might be read that scene 3 times or 5 times. I didn't count it exactly but fuck it, it was epic!!!! Whenever I think that scene, it makes me wet! :D
CORRUPT Valentine’s Day Bonus Scene!

Penelope Douglas delivers a very entertaining darkish read. As in all revenge books, I struggle with why characters never get confirmation before they put their evil plans into motion. This story is about a girl in love with one brother Michael Crist and struggling to break ties with the another brother, Trevor Crist, all the while attempting to find her own way in the world.
Erika Fane has always been drawn to Michael Crist for the majority of her life. It seems that she did something t ...more
This was exactly what I needed! I was hooked on this story immediately and I couldn't put it down because I simply found it amazing and so addictive! With this book Penelope went to a whole other level! I haven't read anything like this before. The story is compelling, dark, mysterious, hot and twisted! You will be on the edge of your seat till the end!
The plot is like nothing I have read before and it felt like I was watching a movie! F ...more
I have to take a minute to calm my shit, but I will say that that was fucking INSANE. I didn't know what I was going to get. I have read exactly one Penelope Dougl ...more
“What if I'd corrupted her? What if she'd begun to like playing games too much, and the lust to play- and to win- overpowered her need for me?”
First thing first, trigger warnings for EVERYTHING. Bullying, abduction, rape, attempted rape, grey area consent, violence, child abuse, murder, drug use, drug addiction, underage sexual content, underage drinking, animal cruelty, death of a parent.
Needless to say, this book is dark and twisted and isn't for the faint of heart. Also, I want to ...more
Wow!!! Just wow!!! This book was confusing as hell at least in the beginning, but it kept you all the time on edge...
Excitement, angst, fear, hot scenes, not so hot scenes, crazy actions...
I got caught in the middle of all those emotions and i couldn't do anything else than loved it!!!
It was intoxicating!!!
First of all, i have to say that i love "Bully" and generally all the books of the "Fall away" series... And from the blurb of ...more
3 Mindfucky 'WTF did I just read?' stars
This story messed with my head. I honestly don’t even know whether I liked it!
I admit, I didn’t really like Bully by this author – I just couldn’t get behind a romance where the hero treated the heroine so horribly. Well, this book is like Bully for grown-ups. It’s dark and disturbing with lots of mindfuckery a whole bucketload of sex – hot, hot, HOT sex! It’s sick, twisted, and all kinds of effed up, yet I was completely enthralled and read it in one sitt ...more
