No, its best read in series order

“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. 
Them. 
All. 
Down. 
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 down your back. Her story is not like the rest of them, because her story is dead.

Tracey’s Review

I seriously don’t know where to start! This book is by far one of the best reads, if not the best that I have read this year so far and I’m sure it will stay at the top for a very long time. If you’ve read any of the Elite Kings Series, you know what to expect from Amo and this series but let me just stop you there. Everything that happens in this book could never have been thought off by anyone except Amo Jones.

I feel in love with Nate when I first started reading this series and learning that the next chapter in the series would focus around him and Tillie, I was over the moon. Getting to see more of these characters was amazing, their story is so dark and twisted but so perfect. Perfect in the sense that Nate’s character is a seriously dark and twisted character, but he is fiercely protective over his loved ones. At times when I was reading this story I wanted to smack him in the face, but I knew that this cruel and broken character had a softness to him, one that we rarely got to see. 

Unless you were Tillie. Tillie had a way of breaking Nate’s tough exterior and the ability to bring him to his knees. Their chemistry was off the charts, you could just feel the sexual tension between the characters, it was oozing off each page. 

Tillie was Nate’s counterpart. She fitted into Nates world without really trying or forcing a relationship with him or any characters. She has this toughness that allowed her to handle Nate’s cruelness and believe he was extremely cruel at times to Tillie. She wasn’t shy of her vulnerabilities and she didn’t hold back from saying what needed to be said. Throughout the story I felt connected to Tillie’s character and my heart broke when she experienced something that no one should have to go through. 

This book is one the of best dark romances that I have read. It throws out so many curve balls that you never know what is happening, you are totally engrossed in the story, the characters and the WTF moments. Let me just tell you that when you finish this book you will be left with some many unanswered questions it will leave you scratching your head. 

Amo Jones is an absolute genius with her words. Believe me when I say that the Kings are back, and they are even better! I can’t wait to read Malum: Part 2, I am sure we will be in for one hell of time. 


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.
