In the secret society of The Luminaries, no sin will go unpunished…
Sleeping with my boyfriend’s best friend, behind his girlfriend’s back, probably wasn’t my smartest idea.
But Jase is mine, and it’s about time Julia knew it.
Attending Lowell University was supposed to be a fresh start. A chance to end all the sneaking around and make our relationship official.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Julia is digging her claws into Jase.
My boyfriend, Chad, is getting in deeper with a local gang.
And my loathsome new stepbrother, Ares, has just moved in.
Ares despises Chad and Jase, and the feeling is mutual. As their rivalry escalates, Ares seems determined to use me as a pawn, and I’m trapped in the middle. It doesn’t help that he’s hot AF, knows exactly how to push my buttons, and my body hasn’t gotten the memo he’s off-limits.
I wish that were the least of my worries.
Pride. Wrath. Lust. Envy. Greed. Gluttony. Sloth.
My life turns upside down the moment the dark secret society of The Luminaries is revealed to me.
Everything I thought I knew was a lie.
Now, I have lost all control over my future, and a heart-breaking new reality emerges.
One where lovers become enemies, enemies become allies, and corrupting sinners to sin is my only way to survive.
This is a 138k-word full-length novel and book one of two. It cannot be read as a stand-alone, and it ends with a cliff-hanger. This book contains mature content including cursing and graphic scenes with some dub-con/non-con. This is a dark romance, and it may contain triggers for some readers.
Ashley, Chad, and Jase are characters who appeared in my Sainthood Series. It is NOT necessary to read that series to enjoy Dirty Crazy Bad. Fans of The Sainthood Series will enjoy cameos from the main characters in this book.
This story is nothing short of amazing. It’s got the emotion and feels of the All Of Me duet but the lightning pace and absolute insanity of the Rydeville Elite trilogy and the why-choose attitude we know and love from The Sainthood series. There’s a filthy stepbrother, a loving boyfriend and the forbidden lover to give us Ash’s reverse harem and every one of those men are incredibly hot. There’s a secret society running everything and most people we meet are unwilling pawns. It’s dark. Like cloudy night in the desert dark. The relationship highs and lows gave me whiplash because I loved the MCs but they made me so angry sometimes.
Ash is a quintessentially badass Siobhan Davis heroine we’ve all come to expect. She doesn’t mince words or bow to anyone, including the men in her life. Ash’s guys are Chad, her sweet, devoted boyfriend; his best friend Jase, who Ash is also in love with; and her bully stepbrother Ares, who’s full of secrets. This story has suspense, betrayal and near-constant action from the first page. I loved everything about it and have struggled to write this without giving away any spoilers. The I received an ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.
