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
So I just finished reading CORRUPT and I just don't know what to do with myself.  What a crazy rollercoaster ride that was.  It was crazy good and I couldn't get enough of it.  I had heard from a few bloggers that it was really good, and I know Penelope is amazing, but nothing prepared me for this book.  I mean FREEEEEEEEEEEEAKKKK!!!  This book is hottttt!!!  I am trying really hard to keep this review PG-13, but man, it's really hard. LOL  There is nothing PG-13 about this book. LOL  I don't think I have ever read a book quite like CORRUPT and I have read A LOT of smutty books.  

I guess I loved it so much because there was an actual story that came along with all the sex.  It wasn't just the characters getting it on every chance they got.  The characters were very well developed and each had their own issues and story.  A reason for their craziness. Ahhhhhhh!  I just can't stop thinking about that one scene! LOL 

There were some pretty intense scenes and some scenes that were really pushing the boundaries for me, but luckily, things didn't get too insane for me to want to actually stop reading.  There were times I wanted to straight up throat punch some of the characters.  They really pushed my buttons.  One of the things that I am so glad for was that Rika wasn't one of those "damsel in distress" type of girls. She is not weak by any means.  She knows what she wants, but just has a weakness for this guy.  She has a mind of her own and is pretty badass!  Yeah, I love her! lol

So, my friends, the one thing that I want to tell you all is that you NEED to read Corrupt!  It is hot and sexy and oh so perfect! When you decide to read it, you can feel free to contact me on twitter to discuss it, because trust me, you will want someone that has been there and understands you! LOL
