It wasn’t just the fact that it was a secret society at Hamilton University. It was also that their presence could be felt in every event, project, and donation on campus. Everything they touched reeked of wealth, power, and success.
But for me, it was the garden V planted and maintained to feed the homeless and the hungry that captured my heart and left me a supporter of

V is for voracious appetite

Wow! The story had me chomping at the bit hoping this story would last a few weeks, because it's that amazing. The mystery, and trying to figure out the plot surrounding what was going on in the V secret society. I enjoyed the writing and the tight storyline. Nate was so sweet and he and Michaela felt good as a couple. In the back of my mind, Theo would come back to claim his woman. I can't wait to see what's up next.

There’s a secret society on Hamilton University’s campus. A secret in the sense that most know about their existence through their community efforts on campus but no one knows who’s in it, what they do or how they came to be. Well, that is unless you are one of the chosen few.

In Danielle Allen’s V is for Villainous, we are introduced to the V Society and the five women who are chosen to be a part of the organization this senior year. This story focuses on Michaela Jones, she’s a hard

This was different read from Danielle Allen, but she did not disappoint. This book gave you everything you want in a suspenseful read, the author kept you on your toes and I kept trying to figure out what would happen next. This story introduces you to Michaela a.k.a.Victorious who is a very smart undergrad with dreams of attending Yale Law School. She receives an invite to join this secret society by the name of V. She accepts and soon finds herself doing things she never thought she would, but ...more

Michaela is a senior at Hamilton University, a place where the symbol V is found throughout the campus. One day she receives an invitation to become a member of this secret society. In exchange for all expense paid law school and lifelong sisterhood, she finds herself doing things that she thought she would never do.

This first book of “The Women of V” series is a different read from @authordanielleallen. What started off as a little slow, turned into a story full of suspense, intrigu

“The way he seemed to see beyond the walls I put up was unnerving. It was uncomfortable yet comfortable at the same time.”

Danielle Allen is hands down one of my most favorite authors, and with that being said, I still wasn’t ready for what I felt while reading her newest book. This is different than what she normally writes but it still had me knee deep in my feelings. Sometimes we do what what we think is best for everyone involved. We push folks away. We run away. We try to go down

I so enjoyed reading this book. I love the way it made me laugh. I love the way it sucked me in. Danielle is such a great writer.

I love Nate. Loved the way he loved Michaela. He was such a sweet boyfriend and friend. I loved that he loved the snort.

I really liked Michaela until about 2 days after Nate told her he secured a full time job. I jus don’t get her actions. I guess when she said she wasn’t in love with him, she meant it

Loved It

I so enjoyed reading this story! There was never a dull moment. I loved Michaela, she went through so much but she was so strong and did what she had to do in life for her. I loved Michaela and Nate together. Nate really cared for her and truly wanted to make Michaela happy. I didn't get to know much about Theo but he was a little whiny for me and his momma lord! Great job Danielle and I look forward to getting some more answers in the next book! Hopefully you won't make us wait t

Wow! Although this was a complete book, I'm still stumped! Hopefully the remaining books in the series answer those questions for me. Michaela had a good heart, and was always putting others before herself. I know that Nate was her mark, but I really liked him for her. Don't know how I feel about reconnection with Theo. His mom is a manipulative witch! Hope she gets hers. In to book 2, to find some answers hopefully. Enjoyed it!👍👍
I'm in love with Danielle's books as it is and then BAM!! She smacked me with this one and I'm still reeling...... This is an awesome book y'all!! She has put together this with EVERY part of a book we all look for!! Romance, excitement (in all ways), suspense, togetherness, and a bond like no other!! I really can not wait to read the others!! She is such a talented writer and this will prove it to you as always!!

Sucks you in

The one thing Danielle Allen is great at is creating a suspenseful story that sucks you into the vortex of not being able to stop reading the magnificence of the world she has created. This is another great one of secret societies, blackmail, breaking hearts to get what you want and regret. Cliffhangers aren't usually my thing but this was worth being left hanging....just hope it's not too long, I have some questions!!!

This was so much more than I was expecting. My attention was grabbed from the very beginning and continuously pulled me in. I love the concept behind there being this secret powerful society of women. I like Michaela's character and I love her determination. Even though Theo is supposed to be her great love, my heart wants her with Nate. Fingers crossed for that. And who died? There's so much more tea that needs to be spilled.

I think this was a good intro to what sounds like an intriguing series... so why the 3 star rating? I felt like Danielle did her usual best in reeling me into the story and creating a fantastic idea and story, however there were times along the way where I was left feeling confused and the ending was less than satisfying. If you are looking for a romance, this isn’t it. I look forward to book 2 to continue the mystery of V but I don’t have high expectations on the romance part of the story.

Okay, first and foremost I am not sure how I feel about this ending. I yelled “You bet not!!!” about 3 different times!
Now as far as the storyline... a refreshing change!!!!
Definitely a page turner!!! And Lordy these pages were steamy!!!!! I can NOT WAIT for the next book!
But just so there’s no confusion I’m #TeamNate

I practically finished this book in one day. It’s so sad that you get so caught up in a book that you’re vested in the characters. Pulling for them to win, crying if the falter or lose. Smh I purposely didn’t start reading this series until all books were out. I wanted to have that continuity. Let me see what’s next...

As usual, Ms. Allen did not come to play! I love the mystery turn she has taken in this book, it adds another layer to her already exciting work. I cant wait to put all the pieces together, because I have many questions. Dont miss out on this! #alwaysloyalreader

Ms. Allen this book had me hooked from page one. The layers to the story from beginning to end shows the outstanding penmanship of Ms. Allen. Thanks again for another great read.
