“Love is savage, love is blind, love is something they may not find…”
Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived in a battered trailer, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks.
One day, she fell down The Elite Kings’ rabbit hole. Sucked into a dark vortex of lies, hate, and deceit, and spat out by money, glitz, and power.
There were things this little girl didn’t know, things she was about to find out and secrets that have been kept from her. Those secrets were guarded by the boys that were about to smash her world open and tear it all apart…
He may be a Malum, but she is a Stuprum, born into this world but neglected by the choice of her mother. Her eyes may not glisten with stars, but they roar with fire, and when she finally reaches her peak, it’s that same fire that will burn.
My name is Tillie Stuprum, and my story is not like the rest.
Everything she thought she knew is a fabricated version of the truth. I’m Nate Riverside-Malum, the one your girl whispers about to her friends and whose initials are scratched into your back. Her story is not like the rest of them, because her story is dead.
Be still my dead heart because it has been brutally ripped from my chest and is currently lying on the ground in front of my feet after devouring this insane story. The deep intensity behind her words had me wholeheartedly captivated and breathless as I inhaled every intriguing moment. This was only my second Amo Jones experience and I think I might have discovered a new favorite author to add to my never-ending list of one-click authors. She definitely deserves a spot high on the list!
Malum: Part 1 is the fourth book in The Elite Kings’ series by Amo Jones and in my opinion it can be enjoyed as a standalone because this is the first story in the series that I have actually read, but at the same time I recommend starting at the beginning to gain the full experience. I am absolutely in love with all of the characters and I have plans on reading all of the books in this series as soon as I can because I need to know their stories too. If this one managed to obliterate my heart then I have no doubt that the rest of the series will as well and I cannot freaking wait for that!
Nate and Tillie’s beautifully flawed connection is intense and their chemistry is explosively real. Their story pulled hard on my heartstrings and it was nearly impossible to catch my breath as I found myself falling head over heels in love with these two. This was a complicated and tragic story full of emotional heartbreak and betrayal. It was a dark and twisted tale that kept me on the edge on my seat until I reached the end. All I can say is that I need Part 2 soon because I need to know how their story will end!
About Amo Jones
Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic. She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.
