As soon as I saw this cover, I had to pick up this rh! This one was dark, gritty and a completely new to me author that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on and I didn’t want to put it down once I did. Tillie! My girl is awesome. She is so strong and I loved her. The boys were BAD. But I couldn’t help but lovehate them. I am intrigued and I cannot wait to get my hands on more by this author in the future!
This one was not for the faint of heart, good thing I like the dark!!
Happy Reading!

This is the first story I have read by Madeline Fay, but it will not be my last. Not for the weak of heart due to the mature content. (Rape, sexual assault, torture). This is a quick read that will leave you wanting more. It’s one of those page turners that makes you forget you need to do anything else.

Tillie’s teen years were horrific. When the people who are there to protect you, are the ones causing you harm, what is there to do? Each character has more to them than meets the eye, leaving you emotional and distraught.

Can love shine through the trauma?

Tillie’s life growing up was tolerable until her uncle disappeared and her father took it out on her. When he commits an unforgivable act of betrayal, Tillie knows she has to escape. When she finally escapes she can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel of her horrid past.
However, Tillie soon finds that she may have escaped one prison for another. She finds herself under the watchful eyes of four men that not only scare her…but also make her feel something more. Logan, Trey, Nicholas and Dalton are determined to break their new doll and bend her to their will…but Tillie is not going down without a fight.
This story pulled me in from the first page…and I was hanging on until the last. It ends in a cliffhanger, so I am definitely looking forward to the next book. There are some very dark themes that others may find triggering…so be warned. However, I loved every second of it and can’t wait to see what happens next!

This is the first book I have read from this author and wow what a rush. I love a dark romance but this author blew my expectations out of the water. I must warn you this might trigger a lot of readers and it’s not for light hearted readers. This book gave me chills at times. All the characters drew me in right from the start. I could not put this book down until the very end. I can’t wait to see what the second book will be.

Tillie is living in pure hell. She is just a possession not a real human where she grew up. Tillie can’t take it anymore and when she is told to run to this address she does. She doesn’t know what she is getting into and where she is going but anywhere is better than where she is or is it? Tillie is welcomed into a family that she has no idea who or what they are all about. All she wants is to feel safe and loved but will she ever get there? Will Tillie find peace or is this another place of torture?

Spiteful Punks starts with a bang and keeps on going! Certainly lives up to the label of dark/bully romance. Shorter read that leaves you wanting more. Ends on a cliffhanger.

Trigger warning: rape, suicidal contemplation, sexual assault, drug use, abuse, death, torture, and general demeaning of women.

With the first chapter being so graphic and gut wrenching I wasn’t sure about Spiteful Punks, but I ended up really enjoying the story. Readers see Tillie’s world torn apart but she continues to fight to live her life her way. Fleeing from her bad familial situation and the M.C. life, to someone who’s supposed to be a lifeline, she is again thrust into danger and people who want to rule her, but she knows how to survive and starts to turn the tables.
There is so much dark sexual angst between Tillie and the four young men: Logan, Dalton, Tey, and Nicky. Each of them is so dark in their own way, and each sets off something inside her that yearns for them, allowing for her sexual awakening despite her past. Logan, Dalton, Tey and Nicky each desire Tillie, but is it just insta-lust? Can they actually care for someone outside of their group, with the baggage each of them carries?
Mention of M/M interest, potential for crossing swords in further books.
Ends on a major cliffhanger, but I can’t wait for book 2 to see what Tillie has in store for the boys, and they for her.
Spiteful punks touches many dark romance subtopics including New Adult, Motorcycle Club, Gang, Corrupt Police, and High School Bully.

Spiteful Punks: Dolls and Douchebags part one is a dark and emotional reverse harem novel from Madeline Fay. I had never read any of Madeline Fay’s work before reading this but I was intrigued by the blurb and decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did as I enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
I would definitely say that this book is for age 18+ due to some of the more adult content in it. There is also the chance that this book could be a trigger for some.
Tillie has had one hell of an upbringing. She grew up with an MC club where her father was the Prez. A father, who did nothing to protect her, in fact he betrayed her in the most horrible way as soon as she turned 16.
This start to this book really drew me in and had me hooked straight away. I was desperate to know how Tillie would cope with her life. When she manages to escape from the MC club her life takes a turn that you would never expect. Tillie is now drawn into a whole new world and some of it makes for hard reading.
I feel we are just starting to get to know Tillie as a person when this first book in the series comes to and end and I’m eager to read what the author has in store next for Tillie.

When I first started reading this book, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was in for, I’ve not read anything by the author previously and I have to say I really enjoyed what I read. The depth of feeling that was in the book really took me by surprise, I really got into the story and the characters so easily. Tillie was a great main character to read about and her story was heart-breaking in parts. I really felt that depth of emotion coming from her.
I love a dark read and this definitely satisfied that for me. I am so looking forward to reading the rest of the series, if book one is anything to go by, I think I am definitely in for a good read!

This book is only for those over 18 due to its adult nature and possibly triggering themes.

Tillie is seventeen and she has only known darkness in her life, apart from when her Uncle was still alive, he treated her better than anyone else, but the abuse she has suffered at the hands of said “family” is horrific and has caused her every kind of pain imaginable. Her father is the President of an motorcycle club and he is the one which has instigated most of her pain and created the nightmares of her abuse which relives at night, that is until someone who cares about her helps her to escape, so she crashes her bike, hitches a ride to the nearest city and heads to an address where she is told she will be safe. She has to do this in disguise and fabricate a story to go with her actions, but she finally feels free and the day after she turns eighteen and makes it to the address, her life is about to change.

Her arrival is unexpected and unknowingly she causes a bit of upset, but she is told to make herself at home and help herself to anything she needs, she decides the first thing is going to be to get something to eat, but just as she is about to eat it, she hears footsteps in the hallway and fearing the worst, she grabs a kitchen knife and confronts the person, however, the young man she finds isn’t anyone she knows, but he is just as dangerous. Even as he is being threatened by Tillie, he has the same tinge of darkness and madness as she sees in her own eyes and as he brandishes his own knife hidden in his boot, she is confused by the fact that she is aroused by the whole scene and even more confused when a second young man approaches from behind and just increases the sensations in his own way, a light to the other’s darkness. They introduce themselves as Logan and Trey and these confused feelings come to a head when the next morning she realises that the suite she has slept in isn’t as secure as she hoped when Logan enters the shower with her and they end up in a passionate embrace, but as a meeting is called with the household and another young man, her world is about to be turned upside down.

Once the truth of where she has escaped to comes to the fore and she is told that she will be attending the local school and that the young men are told that she is not to be let out of their sight, they must escort her everywhere and that she will be meeting the fourth member of the young men’s group and he will have her schedule ready for her to collect, after this revelation, the names of the mysterious third and fourth young man are revealed as Nicholas and Dalton. Will Tillie be able to figure out her feelings about the four young men and whether she will be accepted into thes new life despite feeling like an outcast? Will she be able to keep her sanity in this new type of cage, or will her darkness break through and destroy her once and for all? This is a thrillingly dark romance which is unpredictable, hard hitting and keeps you guessing until the end.

Let me start by saying: this novel is not for the weak at heart. The first chapters were a bit difficult to get through- I should have paid more attention to the disclaimer that the dark themes may be sensitive for some readers- did this take away my overall reading experience? Absolutely Not!

The cards that Tillie was dealt made her character more relatable and had me likening her to the phoenix bird, who will be reborn from the ashes and signifies a journey through fire or adversity. I am waiting with bated breath to see Tillie finally soar. I am rooting for her transformation that I know is coming “I’ll show them all that they are messing with the wrong spiteful girl…”. Tillie, I am right there with you.

I have developed a love-hate relationship with the antagonists. I appreciated that the characters were individually described and then collectively depicting their contribution to the ‘team’. This is not the average run-of-the-mill novel, but a page-turner intricately and creatively written. Predictable- it is not.

My burning question is: Madeline- where is part 2?
