Corrupt by Penelope Douglas

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Douglas comes a new dark romance...


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's 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 STANDALONE dark romance with no cliffhanger. It is suitable for ages 18+.

I couldn't put this book was dark, suspenseful, mysterious, hot and twisted. Penelope Douglas weaves a gripping story that keeps you trapped on the edge of you seat! The twists and turns keep you rivited. Although some of the scenes were difficult to read, the conclusion was worth it! So if you like dark, suspenseful reads with strong characters this book is for you!

It was gripping. I know people say they can't put a book down and you imagine them putting the book down for things... Eating or whatever. Nope. Imagine people with food spilled down their clothes because this lady could not put it down.

One of the better novels in it's genre I've ever read. Writing style makes it very easy to read and get lost in the story without distraction. The characters think, speak, and react realistically making them relatable. The Pinterest board, playlist and playlist take this to an entirely new level. I very, very much enjoyed this book and have read it twice since! Please keep up the good work, Penelope Douglas. In a genre saturated in mediocrity, your work is a breath of fresh air. Can't wait for Will to get his own book!

I absolutely loved this book! If you have felt constrained by life, the book's premise will call to you. I could not put it down. I will be reading any other book this author has written. It made me remember how fearless I was, and could still be.

A seriously "corrupt" view of the lives and world of this group of friends that grew up with money and priveledge. I don't necessarily like the ending but understand why it is this way.

Very dark. Unusual kink. A bit frustrating that it took so long to expose the miscommunication causing all the problems, but overall I loved Rika and Michael's story.

Literally . .I found myself carrying my nook around as I tried to walk and read I didn't want to stop this book was addicting !

Don't understand how this has so many stars. Basically a spoiled heroine who wants to "live on the edge", which equates to petty criminal acts and a hero who does the same. What does that equal?? A pair of idiots. Ugh!

Awesome I loved this book. I loved that it was really different from other romance novels. I loved how the story goes back and forth from past to future. Great read!

This book is well worth the cost. I read a lot of nook books and get tired of the same old plot lines but this book is different and unique. Well done to the author for keeping my interest and writing a nook book that I will go back and read often.
