“Love is savage, love is blind, love is something they may not find…”
Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived in a battered trailer, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks.
One day, she fell down The Elite Kings’ rabbit hole. Sucked into a dark vortex of lies, hate, and deceit, and spat out by money, glitz, and power.
There were things this little girl didn’t

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic MALUM: PART #1 Is the fourth full length New Adult novel in Amo Jones ‘Elite Kings Club’ series.

Boys like Nate are lethal, because you fall for their charm, their jokes, and their beautiful faces. By the time you find yourself lost in their darkness with their demons lurking around you, it's too late. They suck you in with charisma and spit you out with sin. Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I don’t even know what my emotions are doing right now??? I’ve oscillated from feeling all the feels to being dead and numb inside. I need wine, chocolate, and possibly therapy after finishing the mind f*ck of the century!

Amo Jones, what have you done to me!!!! Gah! Nate is my King!

I fell head over heels in love with him during the first 3 books. Getting to know him better in this book just reaffirmed those feelings. He’s a complete and total contradiction. A scary and menacing enemy a

Just like the previous three books in the series, Malum will keep you riveted to its pages, trying to decipher any little clue, any piece of foreshadowing, and lost in the hate and lo

What in the actual frickity frack?! Amo, you know I love you, but whoa!! You tapped into some other ish with this one. To say I loved it would be dumbing it down. It wouldn't sufficiently tell you how I truly felt about this story. If you've met any of the Elite Kings before, you know that they're a heck of a lot more than meets the eye. So far, Nate takes the cake on the whole looks can be deceiving thing because NOTHING I've learned so far prepared me for the man featured in this book. ...more

WOOAH!! my heads in a bit of a tailspin at this moment starting with that finale.
This was a head Eff of epic proportions and I can honestly say I have no real clue bar the slightest sliver of what is actually occurring here.
Up is down, left is right and what's real is so not what you ever think.
Everything is a game that somebody's forgotten to sit down and explain the rules to and if you think the first three books were abounding with manipulations and agendas well this one is also just as evil

Well this was an introduction to an effed up world. I’m still scratching my head over the fact that no one and I mean NO ONE is in therapy. How is that even possible?!! This was a new kind of crazy and even though I’m still somewhat confused, I like crazy.

Without having read the previous books in the series, I immediately went into this story with a bit of hesitation because I had no clue what this author’s writing style was like and if I was going to love it or not, and I didn’t want to fee

Gah!!! When Amo Jones drops on my kindle I know for a fact I'm in for a mindeff of epic proportions. That is exactly what she delivered with Malum. Nate and Tillie were deliciously dark, volatile and explosive romance #goals! I absolutely loved the intrigue, mystery and the mother of all bombs that was dropped. You never knew what was going to happen next which perfectly describes an Amo Jones novel to a T - she never pulls her punches and is one step ahead of the game with a knockout story.

I'm so freaking emotionally drained that I can't find the right words to describe this book... My head and heart are completely messed up...

I thought I knew what to expect from Amo Jones. Well... The author decided to prove to me that I was wrong. What is MALUM for me? One big emotional surprise. And even though I feel like I'm going to bleed out right now I have to bow down to Amo... Because in creating this story, the author has outdone herself, and the hole she left in my heart can’t be quick

Why???? Because THE ONLY WORD I WANT TO SAY is big fat F * C K !!!!

I've just read The End of "Malum. PART 1". My mind is boiled and I can do only one sure thing right now - staring on the wall.

If You expect in my review some perfect words, used in perfectly literary way... well...get lost, You won't find them here. My emotions are damn crazy.... Hell I'm not even su
Still no answers with the main plot points. Tillie and Nate turned into being exact replicas of Bishop and Madison and totally deviated from their characters from the previous books in this series.... And these are just the tip of the iceberg with the amount of issues I had with this book, which I'll get into later when I post my full review.

I finally got my hands on Nate’s story! I’ve been dying to get a glimpse inside his head to see what really goes on in there for ages.

I’m staying away from the storyline in this review because, as with any Amo Jones’ books, it’s best to go into this knowing as little as possible.

We met both Nate and Tillie in the previous Elite Kings books (if you haven’t read them, what are you waiting for?) and I’ve been impatiently waiting to get their story. Their already complicated relationship gets even

This entire review will consist of me battling between my own frustrations and my love for this story and the characters. It was a rough ride, but I am not entirely sure it could have really been told by anyone else, any other way. While I realize a 3 star review isn't indicative of my LOVE for this book, I truly did love the storyline and the characters. I loved the actual plot and the depth that

This book chewed my heart up and spit it out and I loved every second of it. I feel for Tillie, she hasn’t had a good lot in life but she faces it like the bada$$ she is and Nate...Nate is dark, cruel, violent,....Nate is protecting himself behind his anger.

I’ve read a lot of great books, that I absolutely love, but only a few have had characters that resonated with me like Nate and Tillie. You can FEEL the emotions of this book and that is the true testament to how great of an author Amo Jones

Amo fuckin Jones! What an amazingly talented author. The silver swan series is one of my favourites and one I re-read time and time again. I thought there was NO way that Amo could top it... well she has just proved me wrong MASSIVELY!!

Malum is gritty, Raw, emotional, dark, epic and a complete page turner.
You can feel the blood sweat and tears from Amo’s writing just pouring off the page when you read and let me tell you, when you can feel the damn

How do you get over the biggest book hangover of your life? Seriously guys I can’t even tell you how much this book fucked me up! The BEST kind of fucked up! THIS is why we read!

How do I start and what do I rate?

As you all know I enjoyed Madison and Bishop's story, but some parts were definitely not for me. But for the story it was good that it was added. In this one there were a few of those also.
But Amo writes so good that I got sucked in the story and I had trouble leaving the place. I'm so glad I waited until book 2 was out to start it. I hate cliffy's and this one had my feels all over the place.

What I had trouble with was Tate.. How in the hell does Tillie do that

Omg where to start with Malum....Nate is simply LIFE! I’m not even kidding when you think the other boys are bad Nate takes the that to a whole new bad boy level. Yes you do want to slap him at times but then you want to jump into bed with the **** lol he doesn’t make it easy for our Tillie when she needs his help but you will find out why pretty fast.

Why Amo? Why must you do these cruel things to me? WHY? I’m in a state right now. A bad state. A horrible, mind blowing, leave me the hell alone of everything, state. YOU ARE MEAN, and EVIL. But, I’m still reading your books. Because why? I can’t stop. I CANNOT QUIT YOU.

There are SO many loose ends tied up in this book, and I’m so grateful to have the back story on Tillie because it really helps you understand things that were going on in the first three books. Things that I desperately wanted t

“The devil furnishes his darkest souls with the prettiest smiles.”

I can’t remember the last time I’ve read a book that played my mind as much as Malum just did. I feel like it ate my soul and is still munching with pleasure. My mind keeps spinning and I have a vague idea it will only stop until I can finally start reading Malum Part 2. So let’s welcome my current heavy book hangover.

And I don't even know where to begin with this. First, you must read the books in the series. And for those like me, I was dying to get my hands on this book. We were left in limbo and I needed to know what happened with Tillie. Luckily we find out what happened, sadly it is a twisted web of sh*t she's gotten herself stuck in. Tillie started as a secondary character that I wanted to know more about and always wondered what her importance to the story would be and now we

Jesus, what the ever-loving fuck was that?!? 😱😱 Holy Shit— in true Amo fashion, Malum is a complete Mind fuckery!!!

From the start to the finish, it had me hooked! Fucking hooked, like a little Amo was having a chill in my brain unleashing her mind fuckery into my brain like glitter...

Holy hell! What a crazy read. I was hoping what was going on in my head while reading it that the author did go there and she did in every way and I loved it! Tillie is one strong, intense girl and goes through even more. Nate is one alpha jerk and damn did he make me want him even more. This book is intense, dark, edge of your seat moments that leave you with your mouth open saying WHAT! I can’t wait for the second book! 5/5 stars

Tough book

I had a really hard time getting through this book. I really enjoyed Madison and Bishop's story. Yes it was dark but Nate was always my favorite. I was excited to read his and Tilly's story but I really couldn't stand Nate in this book which really breaks my heart. The way he treated her after a big loss to both of them was utterly disgusting and irredeemable. The ending just continued it. I'm not sure I will even read part 2.

If I could give this book 5 million stars I would, but even then, it wouldn't be enough. Holly Molly, I thought the first three books were WOW, but MALUM is ten million F@@king WOW. Amo Jones successfully ruined and marked me for life...This is not your typical Romance story,  no, this is pure chaos!

MALUM is the fourth book in The Elite King's Club Series by Amo Jones and I highly recommend you read the first three books in the series before you start MALUM. You will miss way

Yep, Amo Jones did just what I thought she would do - gave me one of the biggest book hangovers of my life...and a regular hangover because of the copious amounts of alcohol that were needed to get through this book! She will blow your mind - she will take you down all the dark and dirty trails of The Elite Kings all while dangling the charming yet vengeful Nate Malum in front of you. He is every one of my fantasies come true and no matter how broken or bold he is - I still want him!

Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
