The man is a complete dickhead. But I want him more than anything."
“Deviant” is a standalone romance by the best selling author Dani Rene under the Black Mountain academy series. Told in dual perspectives , from the characters to the plotline , everything was perfect about this book!
God , I am so obsessed with this Back Mountain Academy series , It is not even funny!! This book was another masterpiece of this series and I absol ...more
At first I don't have any inkling how the story will take off. Multiple POV arcs, I appreciate the build-up and the reversal facet that was thrown into the story, yet, when everything comes concurrently it felt anticlimactic and lackluster, and I just didn't care for it....more
I loved this story from the first chapter to the last!
Part of A multi-author series of standalone books filled with drama, angst, love, lust, and everything in-between, The Black Mountain Academy Series
Black Mountain Academy. From the outside, it may look perfect and ideal—school uniforms, exemplary teachers, privileged students. But anyone on the inside could tell you about the debauchery, the scandals, the drama, the forbidden–taboo–romances. Because where Black Mountain Academy is concerned… never judge a book by its cover. ...more
I was a little confused at the begining, I didn't know where the story was heading. There were moments where I thought that we going to get a love triangle (I hate those) and even it were moments when I thought that the characters are ...more
(Black Mountain Academy) by
5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well... This book was what I needed. Just PERFECT for me and for my DEVIANT mind.
I love everything taboo and age gap, teacher romance, forbidden romance and that's it.
My fantasy came true, literally. I wish it came true in my real life too.
Arabella's life has been turned upside down by her family. She is forced to leave away to Black Mountain Academy to escape her darkness and start a new life, after all the bad things that she has done ...more
There is nothing I have read from Dani that I have not loved and devoured right away. Deviant is the same. I fell in love with this story from start to finish. Dani wraps us up in a story of twists and turns, a little bit of darkness, and steam of love that comes out of Elian and Arabella that both fight with every breath they make.
I will say that Arabella for everything that she has been through I did not expect her to be as fun and mouthy as she was to Elian. These two a ...more

I was so looking forward to reading this book and it turns out to be something completely different than I had in mind. I didn't even finish this book. It started off all jumbled, and the past/present was just confusing. It didn't make sense. Then you get to chapter 7ish and the hero's foster brother kisses the main girl who admits to also liking him and then he admits to doing threesomes with him? I don't get it. Not my cup of tea.
Black Mountain Academy was my only choice. It was meant to be freedom. But with those watchful eyes, it's anything but the fresh start I crave. When you're good, nobody ever remembers. But when you're bad, they can't stop reminding you. I was labelled a rebel, a party girl, a nuisance, even a...never mind, you don't need to know that. That all changed when he gave me a label. I submitted to the nickna ...more
Arabella is quite the character! Young and impressionable, yet simultaneously wise and experienced beyond her years. A fascinating dichotomy that really drew me in, wanting to know more about her, what made her tick, what captivated her. And like her, I was absolutely mesmerized by a certain teacher's icy stare.
