Corrupted - The Manipulation Trilogy #1 by Alicia Taylor & Natalie Townson


I am going to marry a monster.

He is my everything.
He manipulates people for fun. He takes over their lives, consuming them. He dominates and crushes, ruling them, claiming their souls. No one can survive the games of Damon Hunt.

Before now. Before me.

I am Ella Knight. I am corrupted. My sister was a victim of Damon's games. It’s my turn to play now.

Damon Hunt has been my sole focus, my everything for three years, since my sister’s death. I'll manipulate him. I'll take over his life, consuming and crushing him. I am going to take away his soul. Damon Hunt will not survive my games. I will win.

I hope.

“Ella,” he rasps. “You’re gonna fuckin’ kill me. Sweet Jesus, baby.” He closes the distance between us in two strides. When he’s close enough, his hands grip on my hips and pull me into him. Our bodies clash, my blood ignites. Need washes through me. Damon’s scent envelopes me, he smells pure male. My chest heaves as I look up into his eyes, my breasts brushing against his chest with every inhale. “I can see everything, beauty. Every fucking thing. The rounded globes of your perfect arse, the mound of your pussy, the dimples at the back of your knees.” His hands move down to grip my arse cheeks. He squeezes roughly before pulling me into his hard cock. I moan as the move hits the perfect spot. “God, I need to keep you.”

Sweeter Excerpt 

“Morning,” he whispers into my neck as he nuzzles. I gasp at the soft stroke of his tongue on my neck. “I can smell you. I’ll have your scent stuck in my head all day. I need a taste.” He sucks my earlobe into his mouth as he nibbles me. “Just one taste. I have to have one taste.” The huskiness of his desire filled voice makes my knees weak. I melt into his body, letting the feelings he’s evoking within me take over.

4 out of 5 stars Kindle Coy for Review from Authors

Meet Ella Knight a woman out for revenge.  Her target is Damon Hunt a successful business man who plays with women and then tosses them away afterwards like trash.  No woman has ever won him over until he meets her.

Ella is out to seduce him and make him pay by making him marry him.  She is willing to sacrifice herself as bait to make him marry her.  Revenge for taking her only family left, her older sister who felled victim to his games by falling in love with her boss and then ultimately fired from her job and committing suicide one evening; thus, leaving Ella alone with a diary of Damon’s betrayal to fuel her plan.

Three years later she sets out her plan to seduce him slowly as she enters his life.  She finds a way to live with him and get under his skin.  Ella starts to fall for him as well despite herself as they are attracted to each other physically.  She at times wishes it was real but has to remind herself it is all fake and she is only doing this for revenge.
Along the way she has to deal not only with her growing feeling but a woman from his past that wants him back and does her best to make her jealous. Will Ella ever tell Damon the truth and what secrets do Damon also holds?  What will happen when they tie the knot?

Interesting read as we watch how people can get caught up on revenge and end up falling in love.
