One illicit affair that will span a lifetime.
When something is forbidden, it becomes maddeningly tempting.
Judas Barron, for example. Wicked blue blood and heir to a severely twisted cutthroat society.
Everyone knew who he was and what crew he ran with, a clandestine group of filthy rich kids surrounded by ominous secrets. Secrets that were rumored to be dark, dirty, and stained with blood.
It was never my intention to get tangled up with them, but Judas and I had a secret too, one he was determined to make sure I took with me to my grave, which meant keeping me by his side.
Now forced to be part of a savage coterie, I start to see his world through a new pair of eyes. It isn’t long before temptation becomes something dangerous and wild, breeding the sickest kind of infatuation.
And those secrets that Juda’s keeps? They’re about to tear my life apart.

With a penchant for (writing) villainous immoral men, and a tendency to deviate away from traditional happily ever afters, Natalie Bennett is an international bestselling author of twisted and unconventional love stories.
When she’s not slaying words she’s somewhere in the sunshine state, happily taking life one curve-ball at a time.
Tense, broody & brutal! That prologue was the perfect setup for a bloody romance in a world of teen killers and one unsuspecting girl. Lots of secrets and malevolent acts when Rhiannon catches the eye of the king of the pack, Judas Barron. This was a quick read with the start of love/hate romance and the intro to the mafia families that run the world. The school setting and Judas’ bullying of Rhiannon was OTT crazy but hot. She stood up for herself but she’s just as full of darkness as he is. A perfect pair! The mystery of who Rhia really is was left open but it seems she is not who she’s been told and her parents are bad folks. But everyone seems to be in this story. This is another twisted, gory tale from a fabulous author with teen lovers and mafia happenings with a hint of things to come in the next installment. Can’t wait!
