Publisher's Summary

Erika: 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.
Michael: 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. Unprotected. The opportunity is too good to be true. 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.

love Penelope's stories!!

I have enjoyed all of the books so far . I can't wait for the next story to come along. I really enjoy the way each character has a story to unfold and the raw emotion . The relationships are passionate, sexy, hot, loving, aggressive, and complicated. The storylines are always good and interesting. This writer just has a way of pulling you in and wanting more with every chapter. I finished this one in 2 days. Loved it!!! please continue to write Penelope Douglas. I will gladly buy them all. !!

This book surprised me. In a good way. I mean, I DON'T read YA. Hardly ever. Too much contrived drama. Too much of a reminder of my kids and the college students I teach each semester, each day. I do enough eye rolling with my classes. A LOT OF EYE ROLLING. So, to read YA? No, thanks.

But this one had an interesting premise, so I decided to proceed cautiously. I was prepared to stop once I got bored. You see, this is my second book by Douglas. The first, Misconduct, was disappointing. It, too, had seemed interesting, but the plot was not engaging and the big reveal at the end fell flat. So, I wasn't sure if this one would be any better.

BUT it was! Oh yes, it was!

It had it all: interesting premise, complex characters, suspense, unpredictable plot, multi-layered themes, and solid secondary characters. It even had constant flashbacks and they weren't annoying. I was kept curious and guessing, wondering WHY.

I thought this showed expert plotting. Quite fascinating, actually. And oh, so erotic! Very. And dark. Very.

The male narrator? *sigh* Jeremy York has a yummy voice. And the female narrator? Must you ask? Tatiana Sokolov? It IS Tatiana! That goes without saying. She is second to none! NONE.

This was an overall superior experience. This is the quality of audiobook that spoils you. It wrecks you so that you can't endure audiobooks that aren't as well executed. It left me searching desperately for a similar listening experience.

So ... Kudos to Ms. Douglas!

Highly recommended!

This deeply twisted, totally enthralling tale is immaculately acted by the two narrators, Tatiana Sokolov and Jeremy York. They capture the tension perfectly and facilitate the time switches which pile up the progression of the story seemlessly. I have been captivated entirely!

More Crazy then Currupt

Where do I begin....
I read this on release and even then I thought what the hell, this is one messed up story...
Listening to the audiobook my first impression has been confirmed, Michael and his friends are bloody, crazy the whole lot of them.
As far as the audiobook goes, as much as I love both narrators I don't think either one was right for this book. They both sounded far to old and didn't suit the charators at all.
But you know what, I couldn't stop listening... maybe I'm just as f@&*% up as they all are, but YA is not what this book should be categorised under.. not at all
