They might be richer than gods, but they’re morally bankrupt.
As far as the boys who run America’s most exclusive international academy are concerned, I’m an unwelcome interloper, an inconvenience, and they’re determined to make my life a living hell.
When Wren Jacobi sets eyes on Wolf Hall Academy’s newest inductee, all he sees is an easy mark. A reserved little girl with a target painted on her back. He knows nothing of my troubled past, though. Nothing of my mother’s suspicious death, or the horrific treatment I’ve had to endure at the hands of my psychotic father.
And he has no idea of the lengths that I, unassuming little Elodie Stillwater, will go to in order to break the savage beast who dreams of breaking me first.
There’s a wolf stalking the forests that surround my new school.
Little does he know…
There are far scarier predators lurking out there in the dark.

Riot House by Callie Hart has risen up the list for my Favorite Reads of 2020!!
This book!!! Where do I even start?!?!? This book is so much more than a bully romance. It’s riddled with mystery, unpredictability and tackles some dark subject matter (may be trigger for some) but at the heart of it, it’s a story about two people, two tortured souls finding one another.
Wren will devastate your heart. He’s broody and dark. Loves Poe and is a tortured artist. He’s rebellious but loves fiercely.
Elodie is strong. Her backstory is heartbreaking. She’s the perfect heroine for this story.
These two together are combustible off the pages! They are intrigued by one another from the get home and their chemistry throughout this story is deep.
The writing in this story is flawless. It’s cohesive and fluid. It’s deep and dark. It’s rich in detail and it’s just an amazingly crafted story.
About the Author:
Callie Hart is a USA TODAY bestselling author of contemporary and dark romance. Her Blood & Roses Series is currently being translated into multiple languages all over the world.

Callie is often asked, ‘What is dark romance?’ Her reply is always the same: Dark romance is a story that makes you fall for the anti-hero. It is a story that will make you walk a tightrope, question your sanity, and have you checking your moral compass at the door. If you love a good story about a very bad boy, then dark romance is for you.’
