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 noticedhim.
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.

This was exactly what I needed! I was hooked on this story immediately and I couldn't put it down because I simply found it amazing and so addictive! With this book Penelope went to a whole other level! I haven't read anything like this before. The story is compelling, dark, mysterious, hot and twisted! You will be on the edge of your seat till the end!
The plot is like nothing I have read before and it felt like I was watching a movie! From the beginning I loved the mystery surrounding Rika and the guys. The way the story developed with past and present makes you understand better who are the horsemen and what they do! And this made me feel like I was a part of the story! I coundl't stop wondering how far these guys will take things with Rika and if Rika can continue playing their games! Michael, Kai, Damon and Will have the power.
"Three years ago, curious little Erika Fane wanted to play with the boys, so we indulged her, and she betrayed us .There was no way we'd forget."
I will not say anything else because this book is definitely one of them that you should go blind and live your imagination wondering what you will meet... But If you are looking for a dark, twisted and hot book this is exactly what you need!
I'm so lucky I have the opportunity to read both her new books sooner and they are so unique and refreshing!! I really don't know what more to expect anymore from Penelope...This woman surprises me every time!
••• Corrupt ~ Excerpt •••
I fell back to my feet and crept through my apartment as I listened to the pounding that had now become a steady attack. My feet followed the sound, stepping absently closer to it, and I finally pressed my ear against the wall leading to my hallway, my heart racing as the vibrations touched my skin.
Resting my cheek against the surface, I swallowed the tight lump in my throat as the thumping against the wall grew faster and faster.
There was someoneover there. In the empty apartment.
Holding up my phone, I dialed the office downstairs but got no answer. I knew there was a night manager named Simon Something-Or-Other, but I didn’t think many people were on duty at night. He must be away from his desk.
I continued listening, wondering if I could ignore it and just wait until morning to ask the manager about it, but the further down the hall I travelled, the louder it got until I was standing next to the rear entrance.
Opening up the door, I peeked my head into the hallway, holding the heavy steel exit open just enough to inspect.
Glancing to my right, I saw a door just like mine. And then I heard a woman’s high-pitched cry ring out around me, and I started breathing harder.
She dresses forautumn year round, loves anything lemon flavored, and believes there is too much blood in her Coca Cola stream. Or too much Coca Cola in her blood stream. Or...
You know what? It doesn’t matter. She loves Coke. Now you know.
She lives in Las Vegas with her husband and daughter.
