"I've done far worse than what I went to prison for.She has no idea how bad this can get."


WINTER

Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could’ve done. It didn’t matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I’d have time to disappear before he got out or he’d cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was.

But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he’s anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan.

And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn’t expect this.

He doesn’t want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.

DAMON

First thing’s first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.

Step two… Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor.

But that’s not what’s coming.

No, it’s time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It’s time I showed them all—my family, her family, my friends—that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.

Starting with her.

She’ll be so scared, she won’t even be safe in her own head by the time I’m done with her. And the best part is I won’t have to break into her home to do it.

As the new man of the house I have all the keys.

Kill Switch is a romantic suspense suitable for readers 18+. It is advised to read Corrupt (Devil's Night #1) and Hideaway (Devil's Night #2) prior to reading this book.

“Because pain in the body quiets the pain in the head. It feels good, like a kill switch for your brain.”

 

Excerpt:

WINTER

“I’m sixteen, and I’ve never been kissed.” I put my hands on his chest, feeling my breasts grazing his body. “I waited for you.”

“Winter…”

“I waited for you,” I repeated, panting and brushing his lips with mine. “But I won’t wait forever.”

I layered my lips with his and dipped my tongue out, flicking his lip as I rolled my hips on him. The unmistakably hard ridge of his cock rubbed against my panties through his jeans, and I moaned.

He grabbed me under my arms, holding me up to his face. “That better not be a threat,” he bit out.

And then he took my face in one hand and snatched up my lips, biting my bottom one, almost chewing it like he was starving.

He groaned, I whimpered, and we both gave in, holding each other in our arms, our mouths melting together.

I was fast and clumsy, and I couldn’t keep up with his kisses and tongue in my mouth, but I loved every second.

He nibbled and bit and took with force, gripping the back of my hair to tip my head back and eat at my neck. He moved from my throat to my chin to my jaw and then back to my mouth, and I clutched at his shoulders, tugging on his sweatshirt as I dry-humped him. God, I couldn’t stop myself. He felt so good. It was like an itch that I needed to scratch more and harder.

I tugged at my bow tie, unable to breathe.

Pulling it loose, I unbuttoned my top button, finally feeling freer and diving in, hugging him to where he was sucking on my neck.

My hips moved back and forth, grinding into him

“Winter…” he groaned, pulling back. “I don’t want to…”

I picked up pace, and he grabbed my ass, helping me move.

“Don’t want to what?” I gasped out.

“Make you dirty.”

I slowed, touching his mouth with mine and kissing him softly.

Why would he think that?

“You won’t.” I shook my head, touching his face. “We won’t go all the way. We’ll just play.”

He breathed out a laugh.

I kissed him, and he dug his fingers in again, making my body explode and every inch of skin come alive. God, I loved it when he did that.

Review:

Penelope is a master storyteller and this heart-stopping addition to the Devil’s Night saga is a prime example of that. Kill Switch is dark and spell-bindingly epic. This compelling page-turner is one I won’t soon forget.

“I lowered my voice to a whisper, “that’s what red feels like. Anger and fury and heat and need so strong you’re a fucking animal, Winter. It’s primal.”

 

I love the Four Horsemen. Kai, Will, Micheal, & Damon made a home in my heart after Corrupt, they’ve been there ever since. I have always stated that Micheal was my favorite but after reading Kill Switch, Damon sure gave him a run for his money. He may not always do the right thing or go about it the right way, but if Damon cares about you, there isn’t anything he won’t do for you.

 

“I always made her nervous, and I kinda liked it. As if there were a bigger game at play that we’d eventually get to someday, but neither of us knew what it was.”

 

Winter did kinda tire me out on her back and forth but after finishing this – you get it. She has not had an easy life and she has had people in her life who never do right by her. There isn’t anyone I could come up with that is as perfect for Damon as she is. I get goosebumps when these two are together. These two are electric together and the intensity is off the charts.

 

“Our life is a series of plans,” She finally said. “Days, weeks, months, years…And then, there are moments. Moments you don’t see coming and you don’t plan, but everything you need, all the things you want to feel, are in that moment.”

 

This series is phenomenal and I can’t wait for the next book, Night Fall. I don’t know if I’m ready for Will’s story but I do know that I need it. I’m sure he’s journey won’t be easy to read but it will be worth it. This is why I love reading, I find books like Penelope’s Devil’s Night series, and I can’t imagine my life without it.

 

 

“I hated him, and I would never forgive him, but maybe we had that one thing in common. We had to change to survive.”
