Untouchable by Sam Mariano

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

DARK romance

Wow… this turned out to be quite different than I anticipated. In a GOOD way.
I had read a few reviews, so I expected dark. But this started out REALLY dark. Still, throughout the story the author did an excellent job of building out the characters, and turning around my opinion of Carter. I did eventually end up rooting for him. And after the way the book started… well, at the beginning I did not see myself rooting for him. Unless it was rooting for him to get hit by a bus.
I ended up LOVING this book. Would love to see more, maybe about some of his friends? Particularly the friend toward the end? Just a thought. 🙂

Trigger warning: non-consensual/coerced act

The bully isn’t supposed to win. 

Senior year was off to a rough start: lube in my locker, panties on my front porch, unimaginative name-calling. See, I got a player suspended from the football team for harassing me, and in my small Texas town, you don’t mess with the football players—even if they mess with you first. 

I didn’t care if it was an unpopular thing to do; I stood up for myself… and in doing so, opened Pandora’s Box. 

I never dreamed I would attract the attention of locally worshipped star quarterback, Carter Mahoney. Never imagined his coveted attention would turn out to be such a nightmare. Beneath his carefully constructed façade lurks a monster, a predator looking for the perfect prey to play with. Now, since I’m the girl no one likes or believes, I guess I’m the perfect target for his dark games and twisted desires. 

After surviving my first encounter with his casual depravity, all I really want is for Carter to leave me alone. 

But all he seems to want is me. 

Warning: This book is provocative. It is categorized as DARK ROMANCE for a reason. It will not be for everyone. If you are a reader with certain triggers or sensitivities common to the dark romance genre, please heed the author’s note at the beginning of this book.

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
