Boys like Nate are lethal, because you fall for their charm, their jokes, and their beautiful faces. By the time you find yourself lost in their darkness with their demons lurking around you, it's too late. They suck you in with charisma and spit you out with sin. This review isn't going to make an ounce of sense, my brain is fried, I binge read this series up to this book and my thoughts and feelings are scattered all over the place. If you've not read this series, take my word for it, it's definitely worth a one click. It's dark, it's gritty, it's emotional, it's unputdownable, it's unique, it filthy, it's sexy, it's undoubtably one of my top series read. How could anyone not want to get their grabby hands on this with a cover like that!! Favourite cover of 2019 so far!! Expected Publication: March 12th, 2019 US: https://amzn.to/2Ivdofg UK: https://amzn.to/2SLJzvq To comprehend any of this book it’s highly suggested (by myself) that you start from the beginning. It won’t take you long to get through them, they are quick, hooked as soon as you start them kind of reads and before you know it your onto the next book. So as you’ve picked up from the ‘blurb’ this is Tillie’s story who we’ve previously been introduced to in ‘The Silver Swan’ she’s the girl that went missing, not once but twice, she gave birth to a little girl, what is termed another ‘A silver swan.’ This is her journey.. Tillie and Nate's journey was sad, heartbreaking, heartfelt, a toxic train wreck, the dark games, twists and turns, sexy and steamy. My heart broke for the things these two had to go through. I felt their pain, I wallowed in their despair, nothing prepared me for the heart ache that was going to come my way. Regardless of what kind of monster you think I am, Tillie, and make no mistake, I can be a f#cking monster, I never let that side of me touch you. Ever. However, if I find out that you're hiding something from me, that side won't just touch you, it will annihilate you. God this book and all its mushy feels, I feel like a yo-yo, up and down, loving Nate’s alpha a-hole attitude when it comes to Tillie, but hating him at the same time with how he treats her, then like a switch he’ll do something left field and damnit those feels just get in the way again. My heart is in turmoil. This book sends you in such a tailspin, love, hate, anger, the crushed heart they all go hand in hand. There I was waiting for the prompts to come at me, warning me that I'm getting to a part that I needed to prepare myself for, those never came, but what did come was a beating heart that was turned into a weeping mess of dust!! My heart was ripped out of my chest, the tears came freely, my heart just broke in half. No band aide was going to fix this mess I was left in. This author has come such a long way, her use of words, her writing style, she slayed this series. * Teaser used is off the authors facebook page *

The following ratings are out of 5: Romance: ❤️💙💜💛💚 Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Story/Plot: 📕📗📘📔📙 World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌏 Character development: 👤👤👤👤👤 The setting: The Hamptons, New York The Hero(s): Nate Riverside Malum – second to leader of the Elite Kings Club, Bishop and step-brother to Madison. Nate was quite the player until he met Tillie, but even after she disappeared he went back to his old antics. When he found out that she had hidden her pregnancy from him, he claimed that he hated her. The heroine: Tillie Stuprum - best friends with Madison and Tatum. Tillie grew up with an abusive father and was taken captive by her crazy mother Katsia, who was the leader of the Lost Boys. Shortly after being rescued, she and baby Micaela are taken by her sister Peyton and Carter. Peyton is part of “The Circle” and she is planning to take down the Kings. The Love Story: Tillie met Nate through Madison and they were together a very short time. They had a terrific weekend at the Kings cabin until she found some pictures of Katsia while pregnant with the due date on the back (just happened to be her birthday). She and Nate fought and she disappeared soon after that and Nate didn’t see her again until they showed up on the island to rescue her and the baby who was a silver swan, so was going to be killed. I must say though, that I always liked Nate in the first three books, he is terrific with his step-sister Madison, but boy he can really be a mean boy when he wants to be. Though he would have to in order to be an Elite King. However, he sure can be cruel to women. I wasn’t liking him at all through most of this book. I am not sure why men do this but they always say that they are upfront with women when they don’t want a relationship and they only want the benefits. However, they just don’t get it when the women catch feelings, like it absolves them from using women by being upfront about it. And maybe it does, since the girl knows what she is getting into and if she catches feelings it is her own fault. However, the guy should know that girls often catch feelings for a guy when they sleep together because being intimate often means more to girls. So I think that after a few times, a guy should just know this and at that point whether he is upfront about it or not, he is just a dawg… And don’t even get me started on Tatum. I know she was with Nate first but there were no feelings involved and when he was with Tillie there were, so Tate completely broke girl code and that is unforgivable. (view spoiler)[For Tillie to forgive her so quickly was so wrong! (hide spoiler)] There were so many twists and turns in this book and some really unexpected things happened. It seems just when I thought the story was getting out of the Elite Kings world and into some more normal territory, it got crazy weird again. Then the hits just kept coming. It seems whenever Tillie and Nate start to look like they are having a decent relationship, something happens. Also Madison and Bishop from the first three books were fighting throughout this book, which was mysterious. And that ending was awesome. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Blog|Goodreads|Facebook|Instagram|Twitter|BookBub

I’m so messed up that I can’t form a thought other than I LOVED!! The kings are back my friends and better than ever! Amo is genuis at twisting my heart and mind in equal measure and delivering heroes that wreck my soul! ****AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW**** 5 SECRETS ABOUND CROWNS Just like the previous three books in the series, Malum will keep you riveted to its pages, trying to decipher any little clue, any piece of foreshadowing, and lost in the hate and love that is transitory between Nate and Tillie. You think you know Nate. You don’t. Getting to see behind the playboy we met Bishop and Madison’s story, reveals this jokester playboy is just a mask. We see him struggle in this one with his emotions and with balancing his responsibilities as a king. Amo Jones even brings the softer side of Nate, and all I can say is hold onto your ovaries! You will melt into a pile of goo on the floor. Don’t worry, though, Amo still keeps that hard exterior that we love, the glimpses of the playboy, the moments that make readers all hot and bothered while simultaneously wanting to ring his neck. I simply loved the complexity of his character, and where she leaves him at the end of part 1 makes me a million times more excited for NATE part 2. Tillie is the perfect counterpart to any king, but Nate is her true match in every way. Although, not from their world, in a sense, she fits in the dynamics of their complex kingdom like she is. She understands the nuisances and knows when to push and when to retreat. She truly is Nate’s queen with her subtle strength, acceptance of his devious ways, and intelligence. She is one of my favorite Amo heroines. As with any Amo Jones book, there are moments where I wanted to yell at her and even Nate to act or say different things because these characters are often volatile, violent, free spirited with narcotics, alcohol, and sexuality, but Amo Jones keeps her characters consistent and this is the world they live in. They have unlimited power, no real consequences for their behavior, live their lives unchecked, and are in essence young. They aren’t your standard youth in any way, and I loved reading about all the moments of chaos and corruption. Because there are so many layers and intricacies to her plots, Malum is complex. In order to get it all and not miss many of the hints and important puzzle pieces, readers need to examine every moment, which won’t be hard because once you start this book, you won’t be able to walk away! You’ll demand people read it so you can theorize, dissect every detail, relive that final scene, and lament over the wait! It will be delicious torture, just the way the Kings and Amo Jones like it. This isn’t your traditional romance. It has its dark moments, its dangerous and impulsive characters, and its sexually free and often amoral scenes, but it is everything we love about Amo Jones and the world of the Elite Kings. This is the world that brought me to the words of Amo Jones. It will forever be a favorite, a must read, and highly recommended series. Her words consume my time and I get lost happily in the corruption and love of the KINGS. ARC received in exchange for an honest review

    What in the actual frickity frack?! Amo, you know I love you, but whoa!! You tapped into some other ish with this one. To say I loved it would be dumbing it down. It wouldn't sufficiently tell you how I truly felt about this story. If you've met any of the Elite Kings before, you know that they're a heck of a lot more than meets the eye. So far, Nate takes the cake on the whole looks can be deceiving thing because NOTHING I've learned so far prepared me for the man featured in this book. What in the actual frickity frack?!

If you've met any of the Elite Kings before, you know that they're a heck of a lot more than meets the eye. So far, Nate takes the cake on the whole looks can be deceiving thing because NOTHING I've learned so far prepared me for the man featured in this book. NOTHING !! Boys like Nate are lethal, because you fall for their charm, their jokes, and their beautiful faces. By the time you find yourself lost in their darkness with their demons lurking around you, it's too late. They suck you in with charisma and spit you out with sin. Honestly, if you think you know something... if you think you have even the slightest hint of what you're in store for ... I'm here to tell you that you're dead wrong. Tillie has returned and needs help getting her daughter back. The world she returns to is like a culture shock. Everything's different. Her man is with her friend and the game playing shows no sign of stopping. But Tillie is like a storm unto herself and like the eye of a hurricane, she's chaos. Whatever is happening between Nate and Tate is sure to sour and I can't wait to skip along amidst the ruins. It goes against girl code, King or not. YESSSS!! Why did I feel like this NEEDED to be said? Hoes before bros!! I'm in love with the way that Amo Jones crafted this Tillie character. She infused her with plenty of strength but wasn't afraid to give her many instances to show her vulnerabilities. Her thoughts were honest. She didn't lie to herself, which was a refreshing relief. She was damaged. She was sincere. She was outspoken. And she was desperate to be the best version of herself that she could be. She broke my heart and she gave me hope. What I appreciated the most about her was the way she pointed out what should have been obvious... I never claimed to be mature or even sensible. My soul is deep and the deeper you are, the darker it gets. I'm reckless, impulsive, and I think I'm acquiring an anger problem. Baby girl, feed that rage because I KNOW you're going to need it. Hmmm... how do I warn you about what's to come? What to expect from this read? I have no clue. As I said, Nate was much more than I expected. At times I wanted to give him hugs and squeezes and gropes and tugs and fondles and... other times I wanted to smack him upside the head. He was brutal. He was cruel. He was sweet. He was broken. He was real. I can't even begin to imagine what's going to happen next because everything I thought I knew has just blown up in my face. It's like no one is truly safe (I already knew that) and I don't where the loyalties lie. What's real? People rise from the dead, the evil don't suffer enough, and love doesn't really have a chance to blossom. Reading this book gave me a ton of answers and now has me asking a ton more questions. I'm on edge waiting to get my hands on Malum: Part II. Blog | FB | Twitter | IG | Tumblr | Pinterest | BookBub

    WOOAH!! my heads in a bit of a tailspin at this moment starting with that finale. This was a head Eff of epic proportions and I can honestly say I have no real clue bar the slightest sliver of what is actually occurring here. Up is down, left is right and what's real is so not what you ever think.

This was a head Eff of epic proportions and I can honestly say I have no real clue bar the slightest sliver of what is actually occurring here. Up is down, left is right and what's real is so not what you ever think. Everything is a game that somebody's forgotten to sit down and explain the rules to and if you think the first three books were abounding with manipulations and agendas well this one is also just as evil and twisted as its predecessors. Don't understand? well take a number and get in line because I'm stabbing in the dark also here. Nate himself seems to have done a complete 160 in regards to his obvious personality here or at least in what he outwardly projects to others. Gone is the jokey charmer from the first three books and in his place is well someone I don't actually recognise: on top of this certain thing that occur in this instalment quite obviously push him further down that path of no redemption totally changing Nate beyond all reckoning. This book completely gutted me, chewing me up and spitting me out it was just so heart-wrenching and raw. So this is actually the fourth book and whereas the first three, we follow Madison and Bishop "Malum" continues the story of Nate and Tillie who we were introduced to previously. And as we have come to expect from this new-adult series the boundaries when it comes to the behaviour both sexual and otherwise of the individuals involved here seriously follow there own set of rules and regulations. So this is again told from dual POV and you do really need to start at the beginning here with book one "The Silver Swan" otherwise you will most definitely be running around like a headless chicken trying to make head nor tail of things. It's dark and brutal with more twists and turns than a fairground coaster, it's also safe to say once you embark on this crazy train you will be onboard for the duration so addictive is the ride ahead of you. I am now gagging for Part two really can't wait I need it right now considering that corker of an ending. I voluntary reviewed a copy of Malum: Part 1 (Elite Kings Club #4). All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. Reviewed By Beckie Bookworm https://www.facebook.com/beckiebookworm/ www.beckiebookworm.com

Okay, so it took me a while to start this book because I didn't think Tillie and Nate could top MADSHIP and I only wanted to read this to see how they would get back together especially after the birth of their baby. I seriously don't know how I feel about this book. On one hand, I loved Tillie and how strong she is, I felt the same feelings as her. Emotionally confused about everything in this secret world of the Kings, trying to navigate her feelings for Daemon, Nate, and even Brantley, on top of being a new mum. On the other hand, I felt she barely even stood up for herself and let Nate control and walk all over her. Nate was such a fucking asshole, and not in the hot Bishop way, he blamed Tillie for everything, never wanted to listen to her explanations of what happened, and toyed with her emotions shamelessly, using other girls. I mean be a hoe all you like Nate but you can't flaunt other girls (esp Tate that two-faced bitch) in front of Tillie and then expect her to keep her legs shut you fucking hypocrite???? This book was a mess, the whole Perdita shit was confusing, I truly only enjoyed the MADSHIP crumbs and Brantley, he made the entire book and I cannot wait for his book to come out. ✨SPOILER AHEAD - LITERALLY STOP READING NOW COS I'M ABOUT TO RANT YOU'VE BEEN WARNED 😊 I can't comprehend what happened to Michaela, it was seriously uncalled for and only used as a plot device to shock the readers and not even in a good way. I know it's a fictional book but to use the death of the baby as a revenge plot orchestrated by other teenagers and one fucked up adult male is just so abhorrent it literally made me want to rage reading this. I get it's an emotional thing, losing a baby is tough for anyone, but just the way Nate went about things made me really dislike him. I hated what this meant for the couple, once again Nate and Tillie would be going backward rather than moving forwards, I was looking forward to reading about them trying to co-parent whilst in the middle of the Kings business, but of course, now Nate's hatred would be back full force and Tillie would be left drowning once again 😒 ALSO SIDE NOTE - why do NA authors always put the heroines through so much pain whenever a relationship goes bad whilst the heroes just bury themselves in faceless girls??? I am sick and tired of this friggin plot point in every romance book, for once I want the girl to try to move on with another guy, rather than hopelessly pining and waiting for the guy to come back. Have some self-respect girlies it's 2020, men are still and always will be trash luv!!!! 😤

    Well this was an introduction to an effed up world. I’m still scratching my head over the fact that no one and I mean NO ONE is in therapy. How is that even possible?!! This was a new kind of crazy and even though I’m still somewhat confused, I like crazy.

I’m still scratching my head over the fact that no one and I mean NO ONE is in therapy. How is that even possible?!! This was a new kind of crazy and even though I’m still somewhat confused, I like crazy. Without having read the previous books in the series, I immediately went into this story with a bit of hesitation because I had no clue what this author’s writing style was like and if I was going to love it or not, and I didn’t want to feel like I was missing any crucial connections between any of these characters. I will admit that it started off rocky for me because i was not connected to these characters in the previous books but once I got into it, things started to fall into place for me. Tillie and Nate’s story was complicated, tragic, and filled with more heartbreak and betrayal that anyone would ever like to have in their lifetime. They were young adults that faced trials that people twice their age would probably be crippled to and they tried their best to navigate it because it was a part of their world. There were some moments that I saw the light trying to peek through and I desperately wanted to hold on to that for the sake of their well being but when the dark moments overshadowed? I’ll say this again: How is no one in therapy?! I’m really curious to see what’s going to happen in the next book because the stage has been set, players have shown their cards, and it’s about to go down. Now the question is, who will be standing?

    Gah!!! When Amo Jones drops on my kindle I know for a fact I'm in for a mindeff of epic proportions. That is exactly what she delivered with Malum. Nate and Tillie were deliciously dark, volatile and explosive romance #goals! I absolutely loved the intrigue, mystery and the mother of all bombs that was dropped. You never knew what was going to happen next which perfectly describes an Amo Jones novel to a T - she never pulls her punches and is one step ahead of the game with a knockout story. With Gah!!! When Amo Jones drops on my kindle I know for a fact I'm in for a mindeff of epic proportions. That is exactly what she delivered with Malum. Nate and Tillie were deliciously dark, volatile and explosive romance #goals! I absolutely loved the intrigue, mystery and the mother of all bombs that was dropped. You never knew what was going to happen next which perfectly describes an Amo Jones novel to a T - she never pulls her punches and is one step ahead of the game with a knockout story. Without giving away any spoilers, Malum continues the shocking storyline from the previous Elite Kings books but this time it is months later and Tillie is back with secrets galore. But she underestimated Nate's mission and determination to uncover her secrets threatening the Kings. But when his monster is unleashed, no one could anticipate the devastating consequences and what is coming for them all. OMG this story was absolutely phenomenal. It was raw, intense, erotic and so damn emotional. There was no denying the chemistry and pull between Tillie and Nate. She brings out his crazy and the dark side in him that people rarely see. Without her in his life he is a powerful Elite King, but with her he is a beast with a demon inside him with an unparalleled darkness. She, likewise, is his perfect match as she is the only woman that can bring his animal to heel and the woman he would burn the whole world down for. Overall, this story was twisted, emotional, riveting and consuming. Jones is an amazing storyteller who is a breath of fresh air as her stories are ALWAYS unique and compelling. I smirked, I cried and I raged as Malum took me across a wide gamut of emotions. This book is already one of the best books I've read this year as there were so many shocking moments that left me irrevocably changed. She proves time and time again that her words are a gift and we are lucky beneficiaries every time she releases a new story. Bravo! 6 stars! ~Ratula

    Wow, what did I just read. This story.. wow! I liked Tillie and Nate's build up in the other books and was looking forward to reading their story. Nate is hot, hot, hot. Can't deny that. Playboy to a T! He is bad and so unforgiving. He puts up a front and hides behind a mask made for an Elite King. I don't like him. He is a jerk and immature. There were a few spots where my heart fluttered a bit in the feels department for him, but those butterflies sank into the pit of stomach and burned to ash. Wow, what did I just read.

Tillie was so strong in this book, but the one thing she couldn't hold a resolve to was Nate. I don't know how he feel about her. His actions and words were so contradicting to one another. I think he **might** have some feelings for her, deep down in his blackened soul. This book is dark. It's gritty. It's not all unicorns and rainbows. You will hurt, you will worry, you will say "what the heck" more times than not. You will ache for all of them. You will ask why. You will not be able to put your book or kindle down until you have devoured this story! I don't get what's going on with Madison.. She was such an intricate thread woven into the Elite's world through 3 books, but this book made it seem like she was literally an outsider and only a spectator. Look good, but don't talk. (view spoiler)[ I wonder if it had to do with the plan for Tillie. If she knew the important parts she would have shared them with her and spoil the Elite's ruthlessness to gain the kingdom. I hope Bishop has a back up plan cause he's gonna need it! (hide spoiler)] That ending --- way to make my heart hate Nate even more. I feel like I totally rambled through this.. I probably did. It just goes to show --that IS how my emotions are after reading this story lol.

    I'm so freaking emotionally drained that I can't find the right words to describe this book... My head and heart are completely messed up... I thought I knew what to expect from Amo Jones. Well... The author decided to prove to me that I was wrong. What is MALUM for me? One big emotional surprise. And even though I feel like I'm going to bleed out right now I have to bow down to Amo... Because in creating this story, the author has outdone herself, and the hole she left in my heart can’t be quick I'm so freaking emotionally drained that I can't find the right words to describe this book...

One big emotional surprise. And even though I feel like I'm going to bleed out right now I have to bow down to Amo... Because in creating this story, the author has outdone herself, and the hole she left in my heart can’t be quickly patched. MALUM is the story of Tillie Stuprum and Nate Riverside-Malum. But this is not a love story. It's chaos. A whirlwind of emotions, mysteries, darkness and lust. The main characters prove to us that we only thought we knew them. Each page reveals new layers, both in terms of characters and the story around which the entire plot revolves. Every twist and turn is unexpected and deprives of breath. During the reading I was an emotional wreck and the fact that my e-reader is still in one piece is a miracle. Because I wanted to smash it against the wall a couple of times. Nothing in this book was as I expected. Although Nate always seemed to me the most laid-back member of The Elite Kings, he’s also the most lethal. And even when for the most of the book I wanted to slap him and spit in his face, I can’t deny that he also aroused in me the most primitive instincts that made me want to climb him like a tree and use him in all possible ways. Even with the knowledge that the fallout will be deplorable. Tillie in turn is my favorite heroine from Amo. She’s strong and intelligent. She knows well how to behave in a given situation. She’s the perfect Queen for the King. Although her life is not as privileged as in the case of the rest of the characters in the series, I’m sure that she’ll manage in every situation. I can’t wait for the next part in which I’ll be able to get to know her further actions. I can’t decide whether Amo deserves bow down or a standing ovation. One thing is certain - MALUM is the best work she has created so far. After reading this story, life will never be the same. Fasten your seatbelts and take a Valium because you’re in for the most insane and emotional ride in your life! *ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

Hell I'm not even sure what's my name 😑 Mrs Amo Jones You ARE FREAKING GENIOUS !!!!! I was so excited that I came back for The KINGS and their dirty play, but if I would be smarter, I would remember from the past.... THIS author and this boys will ruin me... I would remember that Amo Master Jones will show again where is my place in line - exactly where big girls, like me could curl in ball and cry... Every another Journey with Kings is always like a f*cking rollecoster ride without buckle up. Sweet Jesus I'm not sure where This Woman aka Mrs Jones finds her inspirations... but let it never stop. After reading book no4 in this series I'm still feeling confused... I'm still feeling like junkie on bookish high... and I still want much, much more. NATE... gah You can kick me now, for most of the time I DIDN'T LIKE HIM ! He was dark, he was cruel... he was just ruthless bastard... I still can't understand why he behave in this way, but I've gave him credit...In the end I was soft like butter in sunny, summer day. LAME comparison ??? Unfortunately.... I can't find another, being more accurate. Amo's idea for Tilie path and character, hit me of the ground... I can assure every reader on this damn planet - THIS girl knows how to stand up against men like Nate. She is firecracker !!! Tilie had my heart from the first meeting in this series, but in Malum she totally rocked my world!!!! I'm dying to see what twisted ups and downs Amo prepared in Malum PART 2, because BOOK 1st only waken up my appetite !!!! ABSOLUTELY MUST READ

    Still no answers with the main plot points. Tillie and Nate turned into being exact replicas of Bishop and Madison and totally deviated from their characters from the previous books in this series.... And these are just the tip of the iceberg with the amount of issues I had with this book, which I'll get into later when I post my full review. Still no answers with the main plot points.

    I finally got my hands on Nate’s story! I’ve been dying to get a glimpse inside his head to see what really goes on in there for ages. I’m staying away from the storyline in this review because, as with any Amo Jones’ books, it’s best to go into this knowing as little as possible. We met both Nate and Tillie in the previous Elite Kings books (if you haven’t read them, what are you waiting for?) and I’ve been impatiently waiting to get their story.

I’m staying away from the storyline in this review because, as with any Amo Jones’ books, it’s best to go into this knowing as little as possible. We met both Nate and Tillie in the previous Elite Kings books (if you haven’t read them, what are you waiting for?) and I’ve been impatiently waiting to get their story. Their already complicated relationship gets even more messed up in this book. There’s a thin line between love and hate and these two have it blurred so much, no one knows where the line is anymore. Nate shows a different side in this book than we’ve seen previously from him. There’s a calculated cruelness in the way he does things now but it’s hard to truly hate him because he also lets his softer side out and that will make you want to swoon (and swoon I did. So many times). Tillie wasn’t what I was expecting at all. I wasn’t expecting to like her as quickly or as much as I did and I’m definitely rooting for her to get her hea. This girl will win you over so fast. She’s probably going to make you want to shake her at some point but you’ll want to do it lovingly. There’s just something about her. Nate and Tillies story is packed with betrayal, lies, secrets and twists galore. It’s fast paced, raw and emotional. The Elite Kings are as intense (and hot) as always and the chemistry between certain characters will leave you needing a cold shower. Malum: Part 1 was everything I’ve come to expect from the brilliant, messed up place that is Amo Jones’ mind. She is my Queen of all things twisted, no one else does f*cked up mind games like she does. She messes with my mind and has me questioning everyone and everything and I love it! I can’t wait for part two of Nate and Tillies story.

This entire review will consist of me battling between my own frustrations and my love for this story and the characters. It was a rough ride, but I am not entirely sure it could have really been told by anyone else, any other way. While I realize a 3 star review isn't indicative of my LOVE for this book, I truly did love the storyline and the characters. I loved the actual plot and the depth that Nate had. Nothing in this book was surface scratching, and believe me when I say that I was easily confused 65% of the time. There was SO much going on, and so many pieces to put together. What a ride. I love Amo Jones I love her crazy books But dammit, they’re frustrating! Frustratingly good, but frustrating nonetheless. But I couldn’t walk away. I try really hard to be fair in my reviews. I don’t ever want to come across as me trying to find little things here and here to complain about, but I also know that I want to always give an honest opinion. I try to enjoy my reads, but I also have a really hard time accepting things in books that don’t really work. Drinking? Drugs? Normal teenager stuff and I know this happens. But running the town? Murder and mayhem? Ordering drinks in a restaurant? Nope. And the drug use? It felt 'token'. Basically placed to give a darker edge to the characters that we didn't really see in the first three books. It just felt far fetched to me in some spots, and it didn’t feel like there was enough believability to the amount of power and destruction these teenagers wielded. But I was dying for answers Amo is so authentic in her storytelling style. There is no other like her and I feel like the only reason I was able to get through this story was because I was so intrigued with not only what was going to happen, but also to see what other crazy parts surfaced. She had so much personality infused into her characters, they were honestly their own persons. Were they all alphas with testosterone coming out their pores? Yes, but the charisma each character demonstrated gave a level of intimacy between the action and the reactions of everything surrounding them. There was a deeper meaning to everything, but not always did I see the 'why' right away and I appreciated that. There was a lot of discovery with this duet, with some parts reading so vividly, yet there were other parts I was so confused by all the jumble that I couldn't make heads or tails about what was going on or who was doing what. Sex scenes were the hardest to picture... But I was curious The good with the bad, the name of the game, right? The amount of errors was staggering. I understand ARCs contain errors and I never hold that against an author. I realize I will get unedited copies, but I also feel like the amount in this book leads me to believe that the editor wasn’t very thorough at all - I had to read and reread a few spots multiple times for clarification just to understand the direction things were leaning. Along with this, the lack of a content editor and research was very apparent. Simple things like the location of I-5, for instance. There was quite a bit of storyline that was unnecessary and caused some parts to feel long-winded and some of it overly dramatic. I also felt that the circumstances, the activities - they all happened with a purpose and sometimes they weren't worked up to. It almost felt like afterthought instead of forethought and that doesn’t help when a character is already ‘set up’. I like crazy. I like original. These books have that in SPADES. What I don’t like is unrealistic and too far out there. But I most definitely don’t like drama. D-R-A-M-A. Unnecessary, drawn out, over-the-top, stupid decision making drama. If these “kids” are supposed to be so smart and able to run the world, why do they make teenaged decisions. You can’t have both worlds. This storyline read like 23 year old kids. Not 18 year old adults. The drama was frustrating to no end and I hate when it is mitigated by stupid, common sense actions. Another thing that really made me side-eye was the boys’ ability to basically read Tillie's mind and know what she was thinking about at any given moment. No one tells anyone anything and everything’s a secret. They have to figure everything out, and that gets exhausting when it’s on repeat. Here and there, in context, knowing what someone is thinking happens and it’s believable. But ALWAYS?? Like, for real. If they always knew what she was thinking, why weren’t they one step ahead of her? Oh wait... But I wanted to finish A book should not be narrated by a DJ - but this primarily falls in Tillie’s voice. That’s obviously my personal opinion, but it felt as though every page had a song and a drink. Like, I understand having some music inspire your stories and I love to see how they influence the story, but when the story centers around a lot of the music - especially music I’ve never heard of (again, a 'me' thing), it’s very eye-roll worthy and annoying. I feel like it takes ME out of the story. I don’t like the playlist incorporated into a book in this way. But this is my issue because every few pages a song was mentioned and I didn't honestly care. I just didn't. Having read some amazing YA, this lacks in comparison. Yes, I know this is a dark, mature YA, but the flow and structure of the story could have been better edited for content and grammar. Having read an amazing asshole bully YA, this definitely left some aspects to be desired. I don’t like to compare because everyone writes differently, and that’s my favorite thing about reading, but when the story has so much to offer, but the writing lacks in its ability to make me fall in love and sink into it, it really messes with my overall enjoyment factor. I will finish this series because I feel very invested by now - after five books, but I know I’ll have to gear up for it mentally. I realize that this will not sit pretty with many, but I hope that while I can happily recommend the story to readers that want crazy and intense, I can not recommend it as well-written or researched, or without certain caveats. But, having said all that; I look forward to so much more from her - and I know that sounds backwards. I’ll call this my guilty pleasure. Like a gossip rag in the checkout at the store. You know it’s full of inconsistencies and half truths, but you can’t help but pick it up and check it out. I couldn't stop reading. But I wanted to know more I loved Nate but let’s be reasonable. Let’s have a quiet, faint voice of reason. I felt his pain over his loss. I felt his mental and emotional turmoil with Tillie. I understood that rawness he felt and I loved how Amo put a voice to his pain like that. However, when you say you like assholes, then Nate is your asshole. He is legit an asshole. Voice of reason: he’s an asshole. Talking reasonable, he’s an asshole. Seriously, his antics are very well masked in some spots but in others, he’s kept me confused. I did enjoy his depth because he had quite a bit to offer, but my absolute favorite chapters were in Nate’s POV. That’s when his true self shined. I loved it. Tillie was a complex character. At times, I couldn’t help but feel terrible for her and her upbringing, but the fact that it made her who she was now is what makes me feel amazed by her tenacity. She’s stubborn, but gives in. She’s sexually submissive but strong in every other way. Her dynamic with Nate was delicious. They had friction and tension galore - in every facet of their story. Ill-timed or ill-located, their sexcapades were definitely interesting and showcased their depravity quite well. They were a very toxic couple, and many readers may not understand the need to still be around each other while fighting their attraction, but giving in to their desires is what makes them who they are. It is one of the many reasons I loved their story. I like hard-to-love crazy lovers. BUT, sex is used in conjunction with intimacy and bargaining. I do not pretend to like that at all. It bothers me. If you love someone so much, you don’t want others that bad to spite them. Unless you’re immature. Which the entire crew is at many times during the books. I know my rating isn’t indicative of my love for this story, but it is. Here’s why: the story itself, in its truest form, is an amazing twisted mess of love and hate. Combine this with the secondary characters and their roles in the story, it kept me rooted to my seat while I read it. It was definitely an addicting high I got from it. BUT, gosh dangit!! The editing and the analogies, the wording and the lack of research, it pulled me out. I don’t want to be shallow. I don’t want to be judged for my ‘inability to just enjoy a book’, but when simple research goes a long way, and when proper editing sucks me in instead of pulling me out - that is what makes the rating higher. I just couldn’t do that with this one. Story was great. A little over dramatic, but great. But when I roll my eyes this much, or give a frustrated cry.....I have to give that little caveat. But, I. Wanted. More. This duet was emotionally and physically exhausting to read and Amo Jones always leaves me with an 'addicted' feeling. One I can’t obviously deny because I keep coming back for more. The depth at which she twists this story is intense, but the problem is some of the parts don’t make much sense. Fix the editing. Get a proofreader. Get a fact checker. Find out some truth and realities. I don’t like to nitpick things and I know it sounds like I am, but when little things that are easily researchable are messed up, it takes me out of the story. Content editing is a must. Real proofreaders are a must. A competent editor is a must. I feel like a few of these musts were lacking. Amo's a writer with charisma - she has charisma in abundance. I can’t and won’t deny that. The problem is that while she can tell an intriguing and addicting story, her background is noisy and the plot veers off course a few times. So while I really enjoyed the first three books in The Elite Kings Series, these last two really drained me. It was ridiculousness amplified. It was CrAzY personified. Things that made no sense were the norm. Common sense was not. It just felt almost like she was working and said, “Oh yeah! Let’s add this part!” and didn’t think it through with any forethought to build up. Craziness just came out of left field. So needless to say, despite all the negative feelings I may have had, Amo still sucked me in. She still gave me an addicting storyline. She still made me want to keep reading. It’s not that I can’t handle a stretched truth here and there. It’s when it’s a continual issue to where I’m rolling my eyes and it’s hard to see past the ridiculousness. Like, really? You can run 12 miles within months of starting to exercise? Everyone knows your thoughts? Everyone drinks but doesn’t like to drink? So many inconsistencies and it was very frustrating. However, I will continue on with this series because I feel very invested after five books with the characters and the continual underlying theme, but I know I’ll have to gear up for it mentally and emotionally. Having said allll that...I cannot WAIT for Brantley's book. I know his turmoil will be so sexy!! He is so smooth and delicious. "Love is just an anchor.

By the time you find yourself lost in their darkness with their demons lurking around you, it’s too late. They suck you in with charisma and spit you out with sin. Tillie takes no crap and off the rails at times; I freaking love her. I am in total awe of how that girl handled everything. She is my favorite in this series. I laughed at some of the things that the girl did. The push/pull between Nate and Tillie gave me whiplash. We see all of our favorites along with some side stories and, of course, some characters that you can’t stand and hope they have a painful demise—another great cliffhanger to set up the next book.

    How do I start and what do I rate? As you all know I enjoyed Madison and Bishop's story, but some parts were definitely not for me. But for the story it was good that it was added. In this one there were a few of those also. But Amo writes so good that I got sucked in the story and I had trouble leaving the place. I'm so glad I waited until book 2 was out to start it. I hate cliffy's and this one had my feels all over the place. What I had trouble with was Tate.. How in the hell does Tillie do that How do I start and what do I rate?

At least for me it does so I hurt when I read those parts and how she acted afterward when Tillie was back. Nope that's not a friend and she doesn't deserve loyalty. I hope I can read a bit of her change because at this point I don't even want to read a book about her. Sometimes Nate gave me a headache my mind was twirling from all the back and fort. Just stick with something and don't change every five seconds.. I loved to see how such sweet parents they are. It hurt to read the heartache.

    Omg where to start with Malum....Nate is simply LIFE! I’m not even kidding when you think the other boys are bad Nate takes the that to a whole new bad boy level. Yes you do want to slap him at times but then you want to jump into bed with the **** lol he doesn’t make it easy for our Tillie when she needs his help but you will find out why pretty fast. Amo I don’t know how she does it but there’s always an evil plot you don’t see coming and boy did she hide this at the end seriously you DO NOT s Omg where to start with Malum....Nate is simply LIFE!

Good job I adore her. Malum has everything you want from a Amo Jones book and then some I’m still not over it don’t think I ever will be, it’s a book that will leave you questioning your life, questioning Amo as to why she put you through this (I’ll meet her one day and hug the ever loving life out of her) the emotions I went through I can’t even begin to describe and it doesn’t end here....Part 2 baby you will scream!

    Why Amo? Why must you do these cruel things to me? WHY? I’m in a state right now. A bad state. A horrible, mind blowing, leave me the hell alone of everything, state. YOU ARE MEAN, and EVIL. But, I’m still reading your books. Because why? I can’t stop. I CANNOT QUIT YOU. There are SO many loose ends tied up in this book, and I’m so grateful to have the back story on Tillie because it really helps you understand things that were going on in the first three books. Things that I desperately wanted t Why Amo? Why must you do these cruel things to me? WHY? I’m in a state right now. A bad state.

There are SO many loose ends tied up in this book, and I’m so grateful to have the back story on Tillie because it really helps you understand things that were going on in the first three books. Things that I desperately wanted to know about! You definitely need to read The Elite Kings club series books 1-3 before reading this book, this is definitely not a standalone. This is only my opinion, Amo has stated that it could be read as a standalone and I know that you technically COULD read it as a standalone, but in my opinion you must read the first three. I don’t think it would ruin your experience to skip, but I do think people would be confused. If anything reading the first 3 will just enhance your experience. Nate is ruthless, unforgiving and an undeniable, true-to-his-word, asshole. The level of mindless, erratic behavior in this series is endless. It’s cruel, it’s heartless, and it’s also the hottest shit you will ever read. EVER. Not only are the Kings evil, but they have a very thin layer of sweet, that only comes out in severe moments of vulnerability. These moments are small, but PAY ATTENTION, because they will consume you. These men aren’t simple, they’re dirty and vicious. But they love HARD and play harder, and dammit I want a king of my own. A good asshole with a loyal heart is hard to find these days. I’m not gonna lie, this book was hard to get through at certain parts. I felt absolute rage and a steady stream of tears that just made me more upset and sad and heartbroken. This book has wrecked me in so many ways. I’ve never been so pissed off and turned on at the same time. The term throw my kindle is real, because I did, HARD. On my bed, but still. This world that Amo created is just so consuming, that no matter how mad, sad, ragey, or stabby I got—I STILL COULDN’T STOP reading! That’s all I really look for in a novel, to be eaten up whole, to be hypnotized by complex words and fictional characters. To be brought into a world so messed up that you kind of wish it were real so you could infiltrate. Malum was probably the hardest book in the series to get through, but it was also the most intense and had the same brilliant writing. I’m not sure how Amo weaves these stories, but I hope she never stops because I’m addicted!

    Yep, Amo Jones did just what I thought she would do - gave me one of the biggest book hangovers of my life...and a regular hangover because of the copious amounts of alcohol that were needed to get through this book! She will blow your mind - she will take you down all the dark and dirty trails of The Elite Kings all while dangling the charming yet vengeful Nate Malum in front of you. He is every one of my fantasies come true and no matter how broken or bold he is - I still want him! You may thin Yep, Amo Jones did just what I thought she would do - gave me one of the biggest book hangovers of my life...and a regular hangover because of the copious amounts of alcohol that were needed to get through this book! She will blow your mind - she will take you down all the dark and dirty trails of The Elite Kings all while dangling the charming yet vengeful Nate Malum in front of you. He is every one of my fantasies come true and no matter how broken or bold he is - I still want him! You may think you know Nate from the first three books in this series....but you don't. And as much as I love his fun-loving playboy side, there is something much darker lurking in him and when you see it come out, be prepared. I didn't think I could fall for him any harder than I already had - but I did. I love his possessiveness, his cocky and arrogant attitude, and the confidence in which he runs in his circle of Elite Kings. There were times in this book I wanted to scream at him - I cried, I wanted to throw my Kindle, and punch him in the face. But I have to believe deep down this is how he is meant to be. A Jones is pure evil genius with how she creates and writes her characters, and Nate's transformation from the playboy to the doting father to the malicious King is absolutely mesmerizing. Tillie Stuprum... this girl is one of the reasons I have not been able to stop thinking about this book in the past 48 hours. This girl is my queen and I want to be her BFF and rule the Kings and Perdita with her!! She is the perfect match for Nate with her sassy and confident attitude. I love that she doesn't back down to him. She doesn't cower. She is bold, fearless, beautiful, and fits right into the mysterious and devious world of the Kings. The past that haunts her has actually become one of her best weapons...she is resilient and her rough edges make her all the more appealing to the King's world. Her love-hate relationship with Nate is a roller-coaster ride that I am not ready to get off of just yet. Their chemistry is explosive and I love every second they are together - loving or hating each other. Malum was everything I expected and nothing I expected - in true Elite Kings fashion. A Jones writes this book brilliantly. Each sentence, paragraph and chapter hold significance and you'd better pay attention because SHIT GETS CRAZY! Amo creates this "dream world" where it's so easy to fall for every character despite their flaws and demons. She makes the darkest and ugliest of traits in them somehow beautiful and alluring, and she pulls in her readers with tempting fantasy-like scenarios that I just can't get enough of! Although at times you want to question these young adults' behavior - this is the world of Amo Jones and every single reason why I fell in love with her writing and stories. This book is a Must-Read, and it will consume your mind long after you've finished it...the fantasies, the questions, and the possibilities of what is to come! The world of the Elite Kings is like a drug and I am addicted. Well done once again A Jones! I can't wait for Part II!!!

WHAT DID I JUST READ?!?! This story went to places I did NOT expect! I. Feel. RAW. I am emotionally and mentally drained! I didn't sleep much last night (heck I haven't slept the last couple nights because I've been lost within this mind blowing world). My mind is a kaleidoscope of endless questions! This book has my mind, bo You ain't ready for this! Ain't NOBODY ready for all that goes down in this m*ther bleeping book! Oh.My.GAWD *cries* Can't. Even.Process *stares off* WHAT. JUST.

I didn't sleep much last night (heck I haven't slept the last couple nights because I've been lost within this mind blowing world). My mind is a kaleidoscope of endless questions! This book has my mind, body and f*cking SOUL destroyed 😲🤬😵😱💀💔😭 Amo what have u done to me??? I'm at a complete loss right now. I literally have lost an entire day chatting with book friends theorizing over this book! I have PAGES of notes saved and none of them are feeling helpful right now. I NEED ANSWERS! THIS is what Amo does to me, leaves me ripped open and fleshed out, but yet I come back begging for more pain! I'll just direct my therapy bills to Amo from now on...LMAO! PLEASE tell me you're going to put me back together when this is done, Amo🙏 I just keep reminding myself of this quote from THE BROKEN PUPPET: "Because being broken is how you’re going to survive this life, Madison.” I will survive this series, I just might not look the same in the end😏🖤 This is the type of book (series) that is forever ETCHED into your soul, BURNED into your brain, and utterly IMPOSSIBLE to walk away from unscathed. You really have to expect the unexpected with Amo. If you're looking for a mindf*ck story, then MALUM will f*ck you three ways to Sunday. This book has left me six feet under and I can NOT wait to drag myself out in MALUM part 2. Personal note: MALUM is marked as a standalone (and Amo wrote it as such), but I HIGHLY advise that u read the first 3 books in this series to get the FULL effect of this world. I feel if u don't read THE SILVER SWAN, THE BROKEN PUPPET, and TACET A MORTUIS u will miss out on building a deeper understanding, a deeper "relationship" with these characters and this phenomenal world. U NEED to come into this book with ALL those emotions that were built from reading the first 3 books.... trust me! "I wasn't raised with a silver spoon, I was raised with blood sodden knives, and girls like me, we learn to use them as weapons. Love shouldn't be offered up as a gift to just anybody, it should be preserved and used as a weapon to protect our heart." -Tillie. Be warned, there is a trigger warning in the beginning of this book and Amo does a phenomenal job of leaving breadcrumbs leading up to it, to warn you. So PLEASE just read the warning right in the beginning of the book. 5 stars

    Tough book I had a really hard time getting through this book. I really enjoyed Madison and Bishop's story. Yes it was dark but Nate was always my favorite. I was excited to read his and Tilly's story but I really couldn't stand Nate in this book which really breaks my heart. The way he treated her after a big loss to both of them was utterly disgusting and irredeemable. The ending just continued it. I'm not sure I will even read part 2.
