My name is Zayn Bronsyn,
and I think I screwed up.

I wasn’t supposed to fall,
especially not for her.
She’s in a league of her own,
and I’m just her brother’s scumbag friend.

The last time I saw her,
she was thirteen with braces.
Now, she’s back from boarding school,

Way too
◾ Immature content
◾hot and cold (characters)
◾ Wattpad-ish story

No connection with the story or the characters.
No one seemed to be doing what they actually wanna do .... instead keeps on pretending, which I for a fact CANNOT tolerate.

There's nothing wrong with this book other than it was painfully boring and felt very wattpady to me.

Amelia has had a perpetual crush on Zayn since she was little, but he has never seen her as nothing more than his best friend's little sister, even when they were only a year apart. That is until she came back from boarding school looking more beautiful than ever so much so that Zayn couldn't keep his eyes and hands to himself, but knowing that he couldn't mess with his best friend's little siste

Corrupt My Mind is the first book in the North Haven University series by Kelsey Clayton. Told in dual perspectives, this is Zayn Bronsyn and Amelia Donovan's story. This best friend's little sister, slow burn romance hooked me right from the start and never once let me go. I simply could not get enough of these two.

Zayn is enrolled at NHU along with his best friend Easton. He hasn't seen Easton's little sister since she thirteen, wearing braces and following them around everywhere. She was acce

DID ZAYN JUST RUIN ME FOR ALL MEN!?!?! IS HE MY NEW KNOX?! KELSEY! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!! Corrupt My Mind was EVERYTHING I love about Kelsey Clayton- complicated characters, scorching heat, soulful chemistry, angst, and a captivating story. But Keley has also upped her game in this spin off series as we see these adored characters shift into adulthood. The stakes are higher, the emotions more complicated, and the obstacles more dark and dangerous. I binged this in one sitting- I just could not put ...more

FIVE CORRUPT STARS for Amelia and Zayn 💜🖤💜🖤!!!


This is the first book that I've read by Kelsey Clayton and I'm looking forward to read more of her books especially future books from this series.

"Corrupt My Mind" is a college romance with brother's best friend/best friend's sister tropes.

Amelia is a female character who has been in love with her brother's best friend Zayn since she was a teenager, who of course didn't notice her until she came back from boarding school.

This protective and possessive alpha male is going to take your bad boy crush to a whole new level! Zayn is the college guy we all crushed on.

She’s loved him for as long as she can remember, but he’s always treated her like his best friend’s little sister. Now she’s at his college and she’s ready to get her guy. A friends to lovers romance between a girl who’s come into her own and the guy who is willing to do anything to make her happy and keep her safe.

"Never underestimate a good girl with a devilish grin."

Kelsey Clayton has the ability to never deliver the same story a second time... Every book has a different trope and i loved that, and even though all her books started off as a little plain and vanilla, then they go on top and you can't believe what are you really reading!
I love how she is turning things around in each book and she is splashing in them a lot of something dark, dangerous a

Kelsey Clayton is a brand new author for me and I can sincerely say she writes exactly the way I like it….easy, sweet, steamy with enough angst and drama to keep my attention from beginning to finish.

‘Corrupt My Mind’ is a delightful, love tale of two complicated characters overcoming darkness to find light, to find happiness. The forbidden love element might seem a bit cliché, but this sinfully, delicious story in which two souls, seemingly unsuitable for each other form the most perfect couple

Zayn cannot believe his eyes when he sees his friend's little sister - she's all grown up and she's GORGEOUS. Where is the little girl who used to follow them around incessantly? All he knows is that she's a knockout. And he also knows he'd never do anything about it because he's no good for her, not for the sweetheart, innocent that she is.

Amelia has long had a crush on her brother's friend. She's determined to get him to see her as not just his friend's little sister, though.

Corrupt My Mind by Kelsey Clayton is Book One in the North Haven University.

I cannot believe we are are at the spin off books already, this book, more importantly this author. She’s one of my favourite authors, she’s one of those authors where simply when you’ve been in a book funk her books sink you right right back into the book world. For me she did just that. Her books are unlike no other and I just love them.

This Book on the other hand, I loved hard. Ever since we met Zayn in the previous

Even though I was late to the game when it came to Kelsey Clayton's Haven Grace Prep series, I didn't miss a beat when she announced her spin-off series, North Haven University. I absolutely fell in LOVE with her writing and storytelling ability from the first moment I discovered her words and I have been absolutely obsessed ever since. She manages to make it impossible not to fall in love with her characters, especially when it comes to her lead

“You have the power to break me.”

Kelsey Clayton has written another star-studded and soul-slashing love story that slays! Corrupt My Mind blew me away! The smolder ... the swoon ... the tension ... the terror ... and the everlasting love that binds this book together are EVERYTHING! This heart-melting friends-to-lovers romance with delectable character chemistry, dreamy dialogue, and nail-biting danger was my sweetest addiction. Corrupt me please!

Amelia is back from boarding school about to start college and she’s ready to act on her crush, Zayn, who’s also her brothers best friend and even though she certainly has his attention now Zayn has basically made a deal to keep her brother safe and he doesn’t need more collateral damage and he’s worried for Amelia for several reasons. I loved Zayn and he was not the bad guy he thought he was, he deserved so much more then what he got

Kelsey did it again with this amazing start of the series! This story is angsty and dramatic, but also intriguing.

Zayn and Amelia's story kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I loved both Zayn and Amelia's complex characters, Kelsey did amazing on writing them. Their story makes you feel all kinds of emotions. Talk about an emotional roller coaster ride

I can't wait for more of the series!

This is the 1st book in a new series and what an awesome beginning this story is. Amelia has had a crush on tattooed bad boy Zayn for years, but he is her overprotective brothers’ best friend therefore off limits. Now Amelia is back from her private school and is starting college at the university, Zayn sees her differently from when they were growing up, and Amelia sees through the persona Zayn like to portray to the sweet and vulnerable man he is underneath, This is a beautifully written tale ...more

If you love brothers best friends romances then Corrupt My Mind is the book for you!

I read this is one sitting because Zayn stole my heart which I knew he would when we met him previously! He’s was broody, swoony and everything I love in an alpha.

Zayn and Amelia were perfect for each other but like any other Kelsey Clayton romance they have to fight and fight hard for what they want. I was turning the pages so fast because I needed to find out what happened. At certain points I was so mad and

I'm a devout lover of all things brothers best friend, and when that cover came out?! I DIED. Not only is this incredibly well written, the angst perfect, the banter on point, and the emotional connection thoroughly developed, but this is by far my favorite book Kelsey has written. And did I mention that cover? Cause my ovaries just exploded in thay corner. --------------------->>>>>>>>>>>>>

"You deserve your very own Prince Charming, and I'm nothing but a villain."

What an entertaining start to a new series from Kelsey Clayton! Zayn and Amelia are such a sweet core couple and I really enjoyed their story. This book starts off as a brother's best friend love story (which is one of my fave tropes). I love the elements of forbidden and Zayn definitely tries to resist his attraction to Amelia. The story then ends up evolving into overcoming some external obstacles as there are

SUPER angsty brothers best friend romance. I literally lived for them sneaking around-because let’s face it Zayn was hotter than hot.
I loved how the two hadn’t seen each other but were forced back into each other’s lives because of school. The heroine in this story hadn’t seen Zayn since she was full of braces and pre-puberty, so when he saw her all grown up the chemistry just zoomed right off the charts.
This was definitely hot-because it was so forbidden. If you’re searching for something with

As a fan of romances between someone's friend and their sibling, I was drawn to this story from the very first word. Though the premise if familiar it's the witty banter, crackling connection, and non-stop sexual tension between bad boy Zayn and good girl Amelia that kept me glued to the pages. Add in angst, complicated emotions, and a few twists and turns and readers will find one heckuva story that will have them inhaling the pages.
