  RUINS OF TEMPTATION: Dark Enemies to Lovers Romance (Corium University Book 4) by JL. Beck and C. Hallman Release Date: June 24th Genre/Tropes: Dark Romance/Bully/Enemies to Lovers/Revenge Romance/Dub-Con-Non-Con   Add to Goodreads:   PREORDER IS AVAILABLE!!!   Excerpt: “Mr. Diavolo,” one of them clears his throat. “We didn’t expect you to be here so soon.” “Where is she?” “Down the hall, last door. I’ll show you.” One of the goons jumps up, eager to show me what good employee he is. The other one is less worried about crawling up my ass and stays quiet instead. “I’m Rick,” the one leading the way explains. Then he points at the guy following us. “That’s Bruno.” I simply nod, not caring what their fucking names are the least bit. Rick stops in front of the last door, fumbling with the key to unlock it. “What shape is she in?” I ask, while he tries out three different keys as if he forgot which one to use. “She’s fine… I mean we roughed her up a little when she was mouthy, but nothing permanent.” “Did you fuck her?” “No,” Rick shakes his head. “Boss said not to.” “And you always do what the boss says,” I challenge. “After all, you’re all alone in the middle of nowhere, nothing to let some steam off while a girl is right under your nose. Seems like a waste not to fuck her.” “That’s what I said,” Bruno chimes in. “She is a pretty little thing too. Would have been fun taking her for a ride.” Turning my head, I look over my shoulder at Bruno with a grin. “Maybe I’ll let you fuck her after all. Let's see how well behaved she is today.” “Lets see,” Bruno smiles widely, showing off a set of uneven yellow teeth. Now that I think about it perhaps not. With a creak the door swings open and my eyes come to rest on her small frame curled tightly into a ball on a filthy cot. For one brief moment a flicker of something, an unknown emotion, sprouts inside my head, but before it can take root I squish it. I don’t care about the situations she’s been through, it doesn’t matter to me. What matters is what happens next…       Blurb: I’ve spent years trying to be someone I’m not. Controlled and humanized. Still, the darkness lurks inside me, waiting for a chance to break free. As the headmaster at Corium University, I must maintain professionalism and keep myself in check. I manage to do that until the day I discover I have a daughter and all the carefully constructed walls I’ve built around myself start to crumble. I know I need an outlet, a way to shut it off, and then she lands in my lap. Delilah. I want to punish her, humiliate her, and hurt her in the best ways. It’s nothing but a cat and mouse game till I discover the secrets she’s hiding…       About JL Beck: J.L. Beck loves good books, wine, and coffee.
