Review of Corrupt (Devil’s Night #1), by Penelope Douglas @PenDouglas

Corrupt

I received an audio of this book via a contest and I loved it. I started it on audio, but when I was not able to listen to it, I read the book. I absolutely loved the story. The story of a wealthy community where the families are wealthy, controlling, and have power that keeps their children from getting into legal trouble.

Erika Fane, a young girl who lost her father and her mother is so consumed by grief that she may as well be on her own. She is cared for by a family that was close to hers. The Crist Family lives next door to the Fane’s and Mr. Crist has control of Erika’s inheritance until she graduates college or turns 25. Erika (Rika) is the sweetheart of Thunder Bay. She is in love with the oldest Crist son, Michael, but she has just broken up with the youngest son, Trevor. She has been infatuated with Michael for years, but she believes that he does not see her.

Michael Crist, the eldest Crist son, who has just graduated college and was immediately picked up by the Meridian City Storm, an NBA team. He didn’t follow in his father’s footsteps and he never did what his father wanted. He was the black sheep of the family in his father’s eyes. He was the leader of the Four Horseman when they were in school and his group of friends, Kai Mori, Damon Torrence, and Will Grayson III, were just as tough as he was. They did what they wanted, when they wanted. They did not have to face up to their crimes as teens, until Devil’s Night four years ago, and now the Four Horsemen want their revenge. Three of them went to prison.

This is a love story and a bit of a psychological thriller. The Four Horsemen have come back together with a plan to torture Rika and make her pay for a past mistake. Their plan could actually kill someone.

I received an audio of this book via a contest and I loved it. I started it on audio, and I read the Kindle version at times. I absolutely loved the story. The story of a wealthy community where the families are wealthy, controlling, and have power that keeps their children from getting into legal trouble. I really liked this story and enjoyed the narrations in the audio version as well. The audio version really brought the story to life for me. I give this story a 4.5-star review. I look forward to more in this series.
