Goodreads TBR: http://bit.ly/CRUCIBLETBR
An elusive beauty queen with a sordid past.
A prominent family with a graveyard full of tortured skeletons.
The plan couldn't have been simpler.
All I had to do was swap my big city life and tarnished reputation for a fresh start in a small town. Catching the immediate attention of said town's heartthrobs was nowhere on my agenda.
Unapologetic about their true intentions, I find myself in the center of a game that has no concept of moral aptitude.
All I wanted was peace.
All they crave is madness.
And in this game, losing isn’t an option.
Not when we're playing for my life.

Holy Dark Romance! If you feel like books are better the darker and dirtier they are, then boy I have a book for you. Crucible is such an amazing story. The author draws you in from the very beginning and keeps you wanting more. I do want to give the disclaimer that this book has a cliffy and involves more than one main male.
The plot of this story is interesting. What happens when a city girl gets shipped off to a small town that is hiding many secrets? Well you will have to read to find out! There is mystery to this story along with the heat and romance. It is written beautifully.
Raelynn is our main female in this story. She is running from a past that she can't seem to get away from. I love that she has a strength in her that most people couldn't imagine having. She is sweet and kind as well. Then you have the two main males. Each are wonderfully delicious in their own way. I love how similar they are yet completely different.
The heat in this book is off the charts. The dynamics between the characters are amazing. I love how theres a tease to what could happen. The author does a great job of building up the tension between the characters.
The writing style of this book is great. This story is told from multiple characters point of views. The pace of the book is steady. The world the author created sucks you and leaves you craving more. I cannot wait to see where the author takes this story next. There are so many questions that I need answered.
Overall, I am in love with this story. I am obsessed with the characters and the mystery surrounding them. I can see this story totally spinning off into an entire series surrounding all the characters introduced. What a great novel!
Writing Style: 5/5
Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don't follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA's.
When she isn't in front of her computer she's spending time with her husband and their three little boys.
Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.
