Review: Corrupt by Penelope Douglas


I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.

His name is Michael Crist.

My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.

But I noticed him.

I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.

Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.

Because he’s finally noticed me.


Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.

My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.

Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.

In my city.


The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.

We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

***Corrupt is a stand-alone dark romance with no Cliffy

Review by Jennifer



I’m totally speechless after reading this book!
I think I need a moment to catch my breath and stop my heart from racing.
This one was one hell of a roller coaster ride, right from the start.

It was





And all consuming.

I had no idea who to trust. No idea who I liked. No idea who to fear. I think I may need some therapy after reading this story. The only thing I am going to say about this book is BUY IT! I went into only reading the synopsis and that’s all and I am extremely happy that I did. I loved that I didn’t know what was coming or what was going to happen.

Penelope Douglas really out did herself writing this one!! This was an exceptional read. Thank you for the ride Penelope!

Review by Amanda

Omg omg wtf just happened!! This is one of the best books I read in 2015. If you like total mindfucks this is the book for you!!! I didn't know what to think or have a clue what was going to happen next! If you are going to start this book make sure to clear ur schedule because you are not going to want to put this book down (besides the odd time you want to throw it across the room) Penelope was one of my go to authors in the first place but she really outdid herself with this one. I floved it!!
