REVIEW: Corrupt by Penelope Douglas
Corrupt - Penelope Douglas



♥ ♥ ♥ 4.25 STARS ♥ ♥ ♥




●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

“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.

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●




What. A. Book!! How do I even review a book like this one? Like seriously! This book was crazy good. I would say it was more of a thriller with an intense and twisted story line than actually dark, though. I started off reading this book not knowing what to expect and I think this the perfect way to get into this one. You should definitely just dive into this book without reading any reviews because I think you will get a better experience from it.

Rika Fane is tired of feeling trapped and controlled. She wants to get the reins back of her life, so she has decided to go away to college and live on her own. She just needs to breathe and be herself, something she has done since that one night years ago with Michael.




●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

"Such a good girl...
Say it, Rika."
"I'm a good girl," she panted, her voice shaky.
"And I'm going to fuck you up."

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


Rika has known Michael Crist and his family her whole life. Michael has always been scary yet intriguing to her. She is drawn to him even though she knows she should stay away. Still, she falls for him despite him always overlooking and pushing her away. Rika saw something in him, something mysterious that she wanted to uncover. But, that was in the past. After what happened, she wants nothing to do with Michael and his friends, Kai, Will, and Damon. She just wants to be left alone. However, unbeknownst to her, Michael has her exactly where he wants her, in his building. He will get his revenge for what she did to his friends that night. No one gets away with betraying them. They will ruin her.

My feelings were pretty much all over the place with this book. There were some parts that were a bit hard to read through. Some things made me mad, others scared the ever-loving crap out of me. It was fast paced, and the things that happened. No matter what, though, I couldn't seem to put this book down. And when I did, it was all I could think about. I enjoyed the originality of the story. I liked seeing the characters grow. Especially Rika, because when she was younger, she kind of annoyed me a bit. But as she grew, she became stronger. Although, I really wanted her the make them work for her forgiveness. It kind of happened a little too fast for me. Then there was this one scene that I was totally not expecting but really liked. It was hot and sexy, and seemed to come out of no where, but again, I'm not complaining. All it left me with is a deep craving for Kai's book. I freaking hope he gets one and soon. The last part of this book was really good and it had me on the edge of my seat. The ending was good too, and it fit the tone of the story very well.

'He was everything.
My entire life, I only felt completely alive when he was close, and while I knew nothing would ever be easy with him, I also knew nothing would ever be good without him, either.'

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


Overall, this was a book that you will love and hate. Just how I loved and hated Michael at the same time. The events in this book are twisted, kinky, and just plainly effed up which is why it definitely won't be for everyone. Still, I was unable to put it down, I was that engrossed in it. This may be different from anything that Penelope Douglas has ever written, but I think she did a great job with it. If dark and twisted romances are your thing, then I definitely recommend you give this one a read.

THIRD DEBT by Pepper Winters
Third Debt - Pepper Winters




♥ ♥ ♥ 4.5 STARS ♥ ♥ ♥




●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

“Nila had my heart. But my father had my very existence.”

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●




What. In. The. Ever. Loving. F*ck. Just. Happened!?!?! I am completely destroyed by this book. Holy hell!





If you read the previous book then you know the huge cliffhanger in which the last book ended. Nila has done what Jethro asked of her and has left without a backward glance. Jethro is utterly shattered and isn't able to cope with his emotions hitting him all at once. In this book, we finally get to learn so much about Jethro. With each book we seemed to be getting glimpses of who the real Jethro is. And that was thanks to Nila slowly breaking down his walls. Now we see him with his walls completely down and it was heart wrenching to read.

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

“We were both destroyed. And the only cure was to give in.”

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


So much happens in this book. Holy cow! Some things I didn't see coming. God, and that third debt. Kes is a character that I have loved cautiously. Because there were moments I had doubt that he could possibly be as evil as his family. But after what he did for Nila in this book, I love him a whole lot more. And Jethro, my poor Jethro. I hated seeing how much of a victim he is in all this as Nila. It was complete torture. To say my emotions were all over the place is a freaking understatement. I was hurtled around in a freaking roller coaster. I honestly don't know how Nila can remain so strong after everything that has happened. But, I hope that she remains that way after how this book ended.

"She was my salvation, my reason for existence, my queen."

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


This book was crazy intense. I could not stop turning the page to find out what would happen next. It was so frustrating seeing Jethro turn back to his old ways. I was on the verge of hating him like Nila did. But after I finally got to understand him, I was so angry with his father Cut for causing so much pain to Jethro. After everything that happened, Nila and Jethro are definitely a lot more closer in all ways possible, and that was beautiful to see. I loved seeing the open and vulnerable side to Jethro. It melted my heart to finally know how he felt. But then that ending had to happen. It was freaking painful! Ugh, I am still reeling from it. I can not wait to see what happens next. I just hope it doesn't get any worse.

NINE MINUTES by Beth Flynn

♥ ♥ ♥ 5 STARS ♥ ♥ ♥






This book...holy cow...this freaking book!!! My mind is freaking blown completely away by this story. It was raw, dark, and all kinds of disturbing! But damn was it good in a twisted way. What a unique story. The things that happened...my emotions were everywhere. I didn't know whether to like or hate some of the characters. Then the twist ending! OMG, that freaking ending!! I totally did not see that coming. I need the next book to come out soon. This is a story that I will not be forgetting for a LONG time. It may also be a book that not everyone can stomach, but I still highly recommend it.


It's been a few hours since I finished this book and I still can't seem to write a proper review for it. Full review to come... maybe... when I can think straight.




***Warning: Contains scenes of abuse, murder, and rape***

Review: Second Debt by Pepper Winters
Second Debt - Pepper Winters




♥♥♥ 4.5 STARS ♥♥♥




●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

“I feel what you feel. Whether it be a kiss or a kick or a killing blow. I wished I didn't, but you're mine, therefore, you are my affliction. So, I will feel what you feel, and I will live what you live. You won't understand what I mean. Not yet. But it's my best sacrifice. The only thing I can offer.”

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●




Second Debt is the third book of the series, and it picks up exactly where the last one ended. I had no idea what to expect in this book. I just knew that the crazy ride was going to continue, and boy did it.




●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

'I’d become enraptured by my capturer. My tormentor. My would-be murderer. I only had eyes for him. My heart only beat for him. What does that say about me?'

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


Nila Weaver, had discovered a secret Jethro was keeping from her. She realized the one she confided in the most, was the same man that was messing with her. Nila wants Jethro to feel the pain of being deceived. However, in the last book, Nila's feelings for Jethro changed. We got to see another side to him. Nila tries her hardest to not want him, especially after finding something that made things real for her on Hawk grounds. Jethro is not willing to let her shut him out completely. The attraction between them keeps getting stronger. He wants to fight it, but he can't. And it seems Nila can't either. Yet this could all end when it becomes time to extract the second debt.

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

“You will let me inside you. And you will let me own you. You will, because we don’t have a choice. You’re inside me. Don't you get it? You’re inside me and it’s only fair that I’m inside you.”

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


Holy cow! This series never seizes to hook me into the story. I liked seeing Nila working on Jethro's walls. Slowly but surely we continue to see more of who Jethro really is. Jethro has been bred by his family from a small child to be the man he has now become. He has a secret from his family, one that only his sister Jasmine knows. He is more than just a tool his family uses and manipulates, he's human. And somehow, Nila makes that human side come out, one the feels, yearns, and hopes. He wants Nila, plain and simple. While Jethro's walls go down, Nila works hard at trying to build her up. She doesn't want to accept that she is falling for the man the will ultimately kill her. Their connections is unavoidable, and consumes them both, they have no choice than to give in. And I don't blame them one bit because it was explosive.




●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

“It’s your initials that I bear. Your mark. Your brand. I may be born a Hawk, but I’ve been captured by a Weaver.”

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


With each page that I read, the more engrossed in the story I became. It was just messing up my thoughts and feelings. I thought I would never fall in love with Jethro, but I totally did. My heart hurt at seeing his vulnerability come out. I hated seeing how caged he was by his family. Then my heart would melt at watching him fall in love. It was too much for my feels. I loved how strong Nila was. I honestly don't know how anyone can endure what she did and have any smidgen of sanity left. I loved the pace of the story and I can't wait to read what happens next. Because to be honest, it could be anything. Especially after that freaking cliffhanger. If you like dark and twisted reads, that keep you intrigued, then this one is it.

Review: Debt Inheritance by Pepper Winters
Debt Inheritance (Indebted) (Volume 1) - Pepper Winters



♥♥♥ 4 STARS ♥♥♥




●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

'There was a debt to be paid. And I was the method of extraction. Plain and simple. I’m a Hawk. She’s a Weaver. That was all I needed to know.'

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●




Wow...all I can freaking say is...WOW! I took me a while to collect my thoughts about this one. It was just so twisted and dark, and it had me completely enthralled. After much consideration, I know that I did like this one. Sure, there were parts I raised my eyebrow at, but for the most part it was really good in weird way.

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●

'I inherited her.
I preyed on her.
I owned her life and had the piece of paper to prove it.
Nila Weaver.
Mine.
And my task………devour her.'

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


The book begins with Nila, a fashion designer that suffers from vertigo, showing off her first collection at a show. She is shown sharing some dirty text with Kite007. I didn't know what to make out of her. She's been sheltered, and both her Father and Brother always keep an eye on her, meaning she has no dating life. Yet, here she is texting a man that texted her by mistake one day. Those texts were definitely really interesting. Nila is ready to kind of become her own person. She loves her family but would like them to be a bit less overbearing. But it turns out that everything she had thought about her family was a big lie.





Jethro Hawk comes from a very important family. They have connections to people in high places. He is wealthy, arrogant, confident, and cold. The time has come for him to finally receive his family inheritance. But it isn't like anything you can imagine. He is inheriting a woman, that woman is Nila and she has to pay his family her family's debt.

'Turned out, I was never an individual; I was a possession to trade.
I was never unique; someone had lived my life many times before, never free, never whole.
My life was never mine.
My destiny was already written.
My story began the night he came for me.'

●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●


This story is so messed up in so many ways. I honestly don't know how that whole inheritance thing can still be legal after so many freaking years. It just does not seem possible. I really loved the twisted story even if it was all messed up. But, there were times Nila did become a tad bit annoying. I just feel like she could have made better decisions. Jethro on the other hand, scared the living crap out of me, in fact, his whole family does. There is this whole scene that made skin just craw so bad. I know this is totally wrong to say, but, I am waiting to see how evil Jethro can be, not that he wasn't pretty bad already. But, because so far he had been pretty patient with Nila despite all his warning of punishments. So, I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. Right now, I don't like Jethro, because all of the things he let happen, so, I also can't wait and see how this story develops and if he will be able to redeem himself. Overall, it was a really great start to this twisted tale.
