“… top dark read of 2021.” – Melissa @ Book Boyfriend and Husband Make Three.

“This book was everything, EVERYTHING, I love in a dark, twisted, reverse harem romance!” – Lauren @ Coffee and The Bibliophile

“Ava Jade is a bad bad bish!!! And I am here for it!!” – The Lushy Reader

“Hands down the best book of 2021!!!!!!” – Emma Frederick

Unapologetically f*cked up. Heartlessly cruel. Broken beyond repair.

Corvus, Rook, and Grey – The Crows.

Bred in a world of gang wars, violence, and secrets, they rule the bloody town of Thorn Valley and all the people in it…too bad for me I’ve never been good at kissing ass or keeping quiet.

Even if their savage spirits awaken something inside of me I thought was long dead, I can’t break. I won’t.

They think they scare me, that I’ll run and hide, but the joke’s on them. The Crows aren’t the first monsters I’ve faced, and they won’t be the last. There are worse evils out there waiting to take their stab at Ava Jade Mason.

I say let them try. I’m tired of running. Tired of holding back my darkness. Thorn Valley isn’t ready for a new boogie man. Too bad I’m already here.

‘Ava Jade was trouble with a capital T. Bolded. Underlined. But I didn’t want her gone. I wanted her all to myself.’

Elena writes stories full of feisty heroines and unforgettable heroes. She may also have a small thing for bad boys and often gravitates towards the darker things in life. When she comes out of her writing cave, she can be found obsessively rearranging her bookshelves, drinking an unreasonable amount of wine, or cooking overly fancy meals for her family and friends.



Outstanding! Fast-paced action, heart-pounding danger, nasty drama, seriously hot boys and one firecracker heroine. I loved Ava Jade from start to finish. She’s got killer skills, a sharp mind and a body for sinful endeavors. Her enemies are a trio of hard boys that are really men. The brotherhood between Corvus, Grey and Rook is one of the best parts of the story. Will Ava Jade join the group? These guys and gal are a little broken with their horrible childhoods and harsh reality. At least the boys are in a better place after they were adopted by the leader of a MC club. Diesel is one hot hardbody. I’m enthralling by him and hope he gets a story. The author did a terrific job with these characters. The boys are individual with different personalities and looks and mentalities. Nothing cookie cutter about them. Sure, there’s some unrealistic moments in the story but it’s fiction and it’s fantastic. I think it’s a reverse harem but so far only Grey has gotten close to AJ, but the other two are drooling in anticipation. The sexual tension and buildup is panty melting as these hot boys pant after AJ. They don’t know whether to kill her or kiss her. Hotness abounds! This is a page turner that entranced me right from the start and I wanted more with that jaw dropping ending. There are twists and surprises and loads of intrigue with one really suspicious text about one of the boys in peril. Enemies at every turn that keeps Ava, Grey, Rook and Corvus on their toes. This is one of the best dark teen story I’ve read and I can’t wait for more. It’s a thrill a minute as Ava and the Boys fight for survival and lean into their feelings. This is a terrific story with delicious characters, a dark storyline that’s full of content and a bit of dripping sex. A must read!
