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.

                                                                My opinion:
Erika was known as the good girl, she was paired with the son of her family's friends since she was a kid. But he wasn't the one she loved. She hated her life, she couldn't be who she wanted. The one time she felt alive was the night when the four horsemen took her with them to have fun. That was also the night that their life changed forever. They vouched for revenge. Three years later it was time for them to act. They isolated her, took everything and everyone she cared away and started messing with her life. Even though Michael hated her, he couldn't continue with the plan. The other three were getting restless and moved behind his back. Nothing was going like they planned. When things went too far they realised their mistake, they were after the wrong person.They were going to go after the real enemies but those two were faster and smarter. In the end Michael had to decided if he would choose his brothers or the girl he loved.

Dark and twisted story with a happy ending. The four horsemen were guys who were respected by their society and could do whatever they wanted because they were untouchable (at least that's what they thought). Michael was one of them, he was an NBA player, he wanted Erika but he couldn't have her. He was the only one who could really see that she wasn't who everyone else thought. So he decided to introduce her to the "dark side". Erika had lost her father in a car accident and the same day she lost her mother in a way too. She was appeared to be the good daughter,student and girlfriend.  But the only thing she wanted was to be free and wild. She loved him since she was very young. When they had the chance to get to know each other they realised what a perfect match they were.
